With the Summer season slipping away in the rear-view mirror, many of us are looking forward to making the most of the new season, and what better way to do that than with a quick makeup refresh? For most, the idea of buying new makeup every season is wasteful, so we looked to beauty mainstay The Body Shop for some great ways to prolong the life of some of your favourite products as you transition your makeup to fall and winter.
Shade Adjusting Drops
We all know that summer glow won’t last forever, and as such your summer foundation is quickly going to go from giving you a healthy glow to an orange-y hue. Shade Adjusting Drops allows you to add a lighter or darker pigment to personalize and adjust your foundation shade, which means as your summer tan fades you can lighten your foundation as needed to match your skin tone.
Shine Lip Liquid
We love Shine Lip Liquid, a great new lip shine from The Body Shop. You can just glide it on as a top coat to your favourite summer shade and it will give it a richer tone to match your autumnal palette.
Down To Earth Eyeshadow Quad
As we all know, pinks, bronzes and gold were huge summer eye shades this year. Use one of The Body Shop’s Down To Earth Eye Shadow Quads to transition these looks to fall. Think about adding in some richer browns, or if you wear cool tones, bring in a smoky grey with the pink for a beautiful winter look.
Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask
Finally, remember to transition your skin too. Summer is a time when your skin has to deal with sun, air conditioning, and pollutants. Remember to get it ready for the barrage of the winter elements with this amazing Japanese Matcha Tea Pollution Clearing Mask.
Another great initiative from The Body Shop is their current campaign to End Animal Testing on cosmetics and their ingredients, with the hope of bringing all United Nations member countries in line with countries in the European Union that have already outlawed this cruel and unnecessary practice. The Body Shop is looking to secure 8 million signatures to present to the UN General Assembly in 2018. If you have not already, then make sure you sign their online petition to add your name to promote this great cause.
