Hate to break it to you fine people, but summer days are officially drifting away. But just because warm weather is ending doesn't mean the fun has to stop. There were some highly-effective summer beauty products to drop over the last few months, including lightweight serums and bright neon lipsticks and eyeliners. Despite the drops, our season-less cult faves always manage to remerge around Memorial Day.
With the transition from hot to cool, it's always important to switch to heavier skin care and hair care products that provide a barrier against the colder, drier wind. This doesn't mean that you have to overhaul your entire vanity, though. "I tend to opt for things that are super versatile," Siraad Dirshe, beauty editor at Essence, tells TZR. "I'll be changing up a few things, but several products that I use now will be used this fall, too."
So before you scrap everything in your makeup bag, check out these picks from some of our favorite beauty editors in the industry who've sampled just about every product at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, Barneys, and Dermstore, combined. Besides, you'll be needing that cash for a fabulous new pair of slouchy boots, anyway.
