You might not completely overhaul your beauty routine when fall rolls around, but it is a prime opportunity to make a few tweaks and edits. I don't know about you, but when the air starts to get crisper, the weather transition makes my skin freak out a little bit. So if you're also experiencing some dryness, you might switch up your skincare products and reach for heavier creams and moisturizers or ultra-hydrating oils and serums.
And when it comes to makeup, autumn vibes are all around. Who isn't inspired by fall's golden hues, darker reds and oranges, and splashes of green? Even though you don't need an excuse to don a dark and deep lip color, this season is the ultimate time to go for it. And you can also experiment with your eye shadows and nail colors.
All of this is to say it's a fun season for beauty. So to inspire you for fall, I've compiled a list of some of the most exciting fall launches and new-to-me discoveries that are perfect for these next couple of months. Take a look below.
All of the products featured are available for purchase via the Shop app, powered by Shopify, and have been independently selected by Who What Wear editors for this article.
If you haven't tried Merit's lip oils yet, you've got to get on it. They'll moisturize and soften the lips while leaving a nice hint of color.
Aavrani is a skincare brand that celebrates founder Rooshy Roy's heritage. The products are science backed but rooted in ancient, all-natural rituals. The Discovery Set is a great intro to the brand because it contains everything you need for a four-step skincare routine: Glow Activating Exfoliator, Balance Restoring Serum, Softening Hydra-Whip, and Eye Rejuvenating Elixir.
Kulfi Beauty's eyeliners are just so good. They glide on effortlessly and leave the most intense, long-lasting color. They're also infused with aloe vera and vitamin E.
This bronzed palette is absolutely perfect for fall. It has such beautiful warm and golden colors that make for a variety of eye makeup looks.
Skylar makes some really intoxicating and unique fragrances, and they're all considered "clean" to boot. This warm and spicy scent has key notes of cinnamon bark, roasted almond, and spiced ginger.
If your damaged hair is in need of some TLC, treat it to this deeply nourishing hair mask. It contains Moroccan lava clay to remove excess oil and buildup, hydrolyzed quinoa to promote hair growth and prevent breakage, and mango butter to soften dry hair.
Here's to your glowiest skin yet. This facial oil is enriched with antioxidant-rich goji berries and vitamin C to brighten the skin, support elasticity and firmness, and hydrate.
Fall is just the beginning of dry-skin season, and exfoliation is key to combating that. This cactus-and-oil scrub will gently exfoliate the skin and leaves a subtle tangerine scent.
You can't go wrong with a nude lip product, and this one takes it up a notch with a pretty rose-gold shimmer. The long-wearing lip gloss can be worn alone or layered with another lip color.
When fall rolls around, that means it's also time to bring out the autumn-inspired nail polishes. And this brown polish is far from boring. It has olive undertones and a hint of gold shimmer.
Oui the People's shaving product starts off as a gel but then becomes a milky texture when the skin is wet. It's packed with nourishing ingredients like dandelion-root extract, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (a powerful form of vitamin C), and aloe vera leaf juice. And for a closer shave, it has argan, grapeseed, marula, and sunflower oils to hydrate the skin.
Summer may be long gone, but you can still fake a glow. These drops give your skin a natural radiance while also hydrating and strengthening the skin barrier.
Kaike's green tea mask is formulated especially for oily and acne-prone skin. The clay mask draws out excess oil and impurities and reduces inflammation.
A rich and deep purple, this showstopping lipstick is just so perfect for the fall and winter months. Wear this when you want to try something different from your usual reds and pinks.
One of my favorite nail polish colors is a luxe forest green. It's kind of unexpected but is 100% sophisticated. This one from Áuda B. Beauty provides rich, opaque color and tons of shine.
Made for both the skin and hair, this hardworking and multitasking serum will balance moisture levels, restore elasticity, and protect against environmental damage. It's a mix of plant and essential oils, so it's totally natural, too.
You've got everything you need in this kit to nourish and hydrate your hair. It contains Briogeo's moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, plus a deeply conditioning hair mask made with a vegan apple-honey complex.
Topicals's Faded gel serum is total magic. It targets marks, scars, and spots while also balancing the skin tone and smoothing rough skin.
It's time for a little self-care, don't you think? This soak, scrub, and butter set will be such a treat for your hands and feet.
This styling custard works for the whole family. It's formulated for hold, definition, and extra shine. Ingredients include flaxseed oil, agave, Irish moss, and chamomile.
I love a warm and deep red polish for the colder months. This one is so rich and sumptuous. Plus, it only takes two coats, and you're all set.
This lip kit has everything you need for the perfect pout: a lip pencil, lipstick, and lip gloss. The shade is a flattering pink nude that works on just about any skin tone.
Take this moisturizing stick with you on the go to treat dry-skin problems, especially eczema. Not only will it moisturize the skin, but it also acts as an anti-inflammatory.
This body oil will feel so soothing and moisturizing on dry and tired skin. It's infused with calendula and plantain, which calm the skin, and it also has the subtle scent of chamomile essential oil to soothe the mind.
Lights Lacquer's polish is highly pigmented, so you can get away with just one coat (but the brand recommends two thin coats). This particular color is a lovely brown-orange that was pretty much made for fall.
You'll find all of Fluide's best sellers in this kit: a sparkly pink-glitter eyeliner, a volumizing mascara, a shiny lip gloss, and a universal brow gel. Your makeup look is all set.
This dark-spot correcting cream not only gets rid of that annoyance, but it also targets the signs of aging, improves discoloration, and brightens acne marks and hyperpigmentation. Ingredients include ferulic acid, waltheria indica extract, and mushroom extract.
Who doesn't love a multitasking product? I know I'm obsessed with them. This stain is a deep berry hue that is equal parts dramatic and sophisticated, especially for this time of year. You can apply it to your lips and cheeks and play around with the color intensity.
Megababe's Smoothie deodorant is formulated with pH-balancing fruit enzymes to fight odor and condition the skin. It's 100% natural and free of aluminum, baking soda, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.
This tool is described as a "hot-stone massage in the palm of your hand." Sign me up, please! Use it on the face and body to clear acne and congestion, treat tired skin, soothe muscle tension, and improve circulation.
I'm totally obsessed with the descriptions for this nail polish: "organic drab" and "baroque mulch." This must be the chicest "ugly" (but not really) color out there.
With reds, browns, and caramels, this set has everything you need for your fall manicures and then some. It also comes with a super-glossy topcoat to make your mani last even longer.
Say goodbye to pimples overnight with these hydrocolloid stickers. They'll absorb fluids, reduce inflammation, and shrink pimples.
Formulated with vitamin C, guava, and tranexamic and ferulic acids, Glow Recipe's serum will reduce the appearance of dark spots while also brightening your skin. It can be used daily, both morning and night.
Snif is all about high-quality, clean, and genderless fragrances. Try the brand's bundle kit to experiment with different scents. This one features Honorable Mention (with notes of peach timur pepper and jasmine tea); Sweet Ash (juniper, bergamot, and fir balsam); and Poppy Issues (plum, saffron, and red poppy).
