Transitioning your look from summer to fall can be a bit tricky in the warm south Florida climate. Adjusting your beauty routine and look is the easiest way to get the fall look, without sacrificing comfort.
With fall officially in full swing, Nordstrom Beauty has kicked off the season with the start of its seasonal beauty trend events all over the US. On Saturday, Sept. 20, beauty experts and industry insiders gathered at Nordstrom in Town Center of Boca Raton to dole out tips, chat about hot trends and try out exciting new products.

I ventured over to the mall for a fun fall makeover and learn about what to expect for the new season. Here’s what I gathered:
The deep berry lip and the rock and roll smoky eye are without a doubt the two hottest trends for fall. Swapping the bold, red lip of summer for a wine-stained pout has never been easier with so many amazing options out on the market. My personal favorite is the MAC shade, Sin. Pair the lip with a fresh, dewy face and big, bold lashes.
The rock and roll smoky eye is no new trend, but this season, think colored smoke; coppers, gunmetal, and jewel tones. The look is a bit more playful. With tons of beautiful palettes to choose from, everyone has something fabulous to offer. Definitely check out the new palettes and kohl pencils by makeup guruCharlotte Tilbury.
Rounding out the season’s hottest beauty trends are product launches from two of our favorite brands, Nars and Dior.
NARS’ new ‘Audacious’ lipstick collection has hit stores and the web. There are 30 gorgeous, vibrant colors, with each shade named after a woman who has inspired chief makeup artist, Francois Nars. Nailing which celeb inspired each shade is a veritable guessing game. I personally tested out the ‘Lana’ shade and loved it – I just can’t decide whether it’s named after Lana Del Rey or Lana Turner!
Dior’s fall product launch is the Diorskin ‘Star’ foundation. The brand’s first luminous finish foundation offers great coverage and illuminates from within. The light, weightless formula does a wonderful job of evening skin tone and covering up problem areas.
