Shift up your beauty routine in like with the seasons. Here is The Vendeur’s bumper Autumn beauty picks guide.
Autumn is the perfect time to slow down. Days are getting shorter, shadows are getting longer, and we can’t help but crave some self-care time. Either to relax and unwind, or a day of pampering to boost your mood: the choices are plenty, especially when the clean beauty industry never ceases to spoil us. Enriching balms, calming scents, pop of colours and organic makeup. This is our bumper guide to new products and effective formulas this season.
It’s heavy on skincare, becuase when your skin is taken care of, especially in Autumn, you need a little less makeup. Whatever you decide to go for, go green and natural, in alignment with the mindful time that you spend using the products to uplift your rainy afternoons.
