When it comes to makeup, it’s easy to feel like you need to buy a whole new set of products every season to keep up with the latest trends. But the truth is, you can easily transition your makeup from season to season without spending a dime.
What colors do you already own? What products do you use the most? Once you know what you have, you can start to plan how to use it to create different looks for different seasons.
Step 1: Make sure your skincare routine is using products formulated for your skin type. Not sure what your skin type is? Grab Natalie Setareh’s skin type guide here.

As the seasons change, so do the environmental conditions, and your skin requires different care to adapt to the changing temperatures, humidity levels, and UV exposure.
To transition your skincare routine from winter to spring, for instance, you may swap out those from heavy, oil-based moisturizers to lighter, water-based ones to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.
prioritize using sunscreen daily and reapply it frequently to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
Focus on repairing any sun damage from summer with products that contain antioxidants, like vitamin C or E. Make sure to get ready for the seasonal changes: in winter months, use a richer moisturizer and consider adding a hydrating serum to combat dryness caused by indoor heating.
Remember, it’s important to listen to your skin and adjust your beauty routine as needed to keep it looking and feeling its best throughout the year. -Natalie Setareh
For example, if you have a full coverage foundation but want a sheer, tinted moisturizer look — turn it into a tinted moisturizer by mixing your moisturizer into your foundation! Yes, it’s that easy. (If and only if your foundation and moisturizer are formulated for the same skin type). Read, oil and water don’t mix!
By customizing your foundation to suit the time of year and your skin’s needs, you can achieve a flawless complexion with a touch of radiance. Embrace the beauty of seasonal changes and let your natural glow shine through.
The same is true for lipsticks, stains, and glosses — you can sheer out that bold lip you haven’t worn into a mere tint!
One of the best ways to transition your makeup from season to season is to experiment with different colors and techniques.
The bold lipstick you love during the fall? Try using it on your cheeks during the summer or spring.
Those fun pops of color living in your eyeshadow palettes that you don’t use, apply them on the center of the eyelid or as an eyeliner during the spring.
Those iridescent shades that look ‘too shiny’ make for perfect highlights during the cold winter months.
