#TargetStyle: Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall Beauty

This post is sponsored by Target.

Let’s all have a group YAY! for Labor Day and then take a moment of silence that summer is almost over. Can you even believe it? As I mentioned last week, I’m sort of pretending it’s not happening. Yes, I live in LA which is perpetual summer weather but we can all agree that “summer” is a state of mind.

The two things I am excited for are fall fashion and beauty. New season means new trends and time to reinvent your look. I’m continuing my beauty partnership with Target and looking at easy ways to take your beauty routine from summer to fall with Pixi

My definition of summer beauty is getting “the glow” - it’s part sunkissed, part carefree, part barely there. 3 great products I’ve started mixing into my regular beauty routine are Pixi’s eyebright primer, glow mist, and mesmerizing mineral palette.

The eyebright primer is a great base for any eye makeup and really opens the eyes and gives that “I’ve been vacationing and am just so relaxed” look while the glow mist does just that... glows! I’ve been using the lighter colors in the mineral palette to add definition to the lids without looking too overdone. The best part about the palette is that it has darker purples which are perfect for fall. 

When it comes to fall beauty my motto is: just a little more color. I rarely dable in crazy lipstick colors (although I sort of want to try #imsacred), so a tinted lip balm or gloss is my go-to. With my brown eyes and dark features, purples and plums are my eye-colors of choice.

For a transitional Fall look I did my regular 5 minute makeup routine then dove into the deeper purples of the mesmerizing mineral palette, defined with Pixi’s silky eye pen in deep plum, and added a touch of color to the lip. I’m gaga over the silky eye pen because it glides on easily and stays put. Can I get an amen?

Goodbye summer, hello fall! For lips I mixed the radiant rose + nearly naked colors to get a pretty nude pink. Get all the deets on this hat romper combo here - currently obsessed with this pairing.
