We all know that fashion changes every season, whether you’re ready or not. Gauzy summer frocks get packed away and traded for tights, sweaters, and boots; it’s an inevitable part of the passage of time.

But I always find that my beauty routine changes pretty dramatically, too. In the summer, it’s just too hot for much makeup, and I tend to keep it simple with just a few of these easy beauty hacks and some SPF moisturizer. But once fall rolls around? It’s a whole new ball game.

That light summer moisturizer needs to be traded for something richer, and the color scheme tends to get darker and bolder. For example, fall is a great time to try a bold red lip and a crisp cat eye — though don’t take these guys as an example.

If you’re feeling brave, you can even move past the red into the plum and berry tones that feel so appropriate for fall. Major beauty star Shaaanxo knows all about perfecting the dark, bold lip for fall, and she has the perfect strategy for pulling it off risk-free.

Her strategy is simple and effective. Combine flawless skin with high-volume lashes and add a berry-toned lip color. And voila, you’re picture-perfect for fall!

This video will take you through each step, starting with a foundation routine to get perfect, dewy skin, and then moving through eyes and makeup. If you have time, I highly recommend watching the whole skin tutorial, but if you want to skip ahead to the eyes and lips, that part starts around the nine-minute mark.
