The Best of Fall Makeup
September in the South presents a variety pack of issues. In some states, the weather might be described like hot yoga studio in Hades, while in others, families are bundling up for Instagram-worthy afternoon apple picking. In more instances than not, the weather shifts between these two scenarios daily, sometimes hourly.
Which is why makeup and skincare in autumn need to be ultra-functional, easy to reapply, and timeless. Here are five products that will help you navigate the most confusing time of year.
