(ARA) – Fall is a time of transition. Not only do you need to prepare your skin for the cold months ahead, but it’s time to transform your look from light and airy to soft and classic. Focus on a few beauty basics and you’ll have all you need for a fantastic fall.

Great skin is always in

Cool weather means your skin needs extra moisture to keep it supple. Coconut Milk Body Lotion from The Body Shop helps you treat yourself to the finest ingredients – like ethically-sourced community trade coconut oil from Samoa – and get soft, smooth and deliciously scented skin.

Ultra-modern eyes

This fall, dramatic smoldering eyes are what’s fabulous. International make-up artist Chase Aston suggests forest green, grey and lilac to create the season’s must-have eyes.

Pucker up

Autumn lips are washed in soft color. Aston says this fall is all about the perfect pout and recommends any of the 37 shades of Colourglide Lip Color from The Body Shop.

Bundle up

This season’s must-have piece is the crisp white jacket that works with everything from jeans to a little black dress.

Also deciding to be realistic, while being positive, says Kong, is also important to being happy. In that way, you are making conscious decisions, which will allow you to be happier, more often.
