Now that September’s rolled around and we’re closing the door on summer, it’s time to trade in your beach-ready beauty products for something a little more fall-worthy. Update your makeup bag without breaking the bank and catch up on the trends with these picks.

Fall means a return to more dramatic beauty looks, which also means it’s time to start working on your liner game. The Maybelline New York Eye Studio Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner ($12) has a design that was created to make getting that perfect wing easier than ever, with a handle that fits into the contour of your palm and a pointed tip for accurate application.

Now that the days of bronze are slipping away, it’s time to try some deeper shades. The NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Creams ($10) are perfect for a season where jewel tones are in abundance. These highly pigmented lippies are smooth, shimmery and definitely pack a punch. Throw one of them on for your next girl’s night out and bask in the compliments.

Transition to a more matte look with e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Finishing Powder ($6). Fall is all about fresh, healthy skin, and this tinted powder will have your skin looking flawless with light coverage that sets makeup so it stays fresh throughout the work day. Keep one in your purse for quick touch-ups on the go and to zap any shine that pops up during the day.

Swap your summer gloss for a fall lipstick with ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip ($6). A taupe or berry satin lip is just what September is calling for, and these long-wearing lipsticks are perfect for transitioning into sweater weather. As a bonus, the low price tag means you can stock up on a few for a new fall lip wardrobe.

Bold eyes and long, fluttery lashes are on deck, which makes Quo Holy Grail Mascara ($12) a-must have. This mascara makes large promises with its name and after getting buildable bat-worthy lashes, we’re converts for this drugstore winner.
