In this guest blog, the fashion experts at The Mall at Millenia share five hot fashion trips when visiting Orlando this fall.
If you visit Orlando in the fall, there’s a good chance that the temperature outside may still feel like summer. This poses a challenge to any style-savvy fashionista who wants to dress for the season (because, unfortunately, cozy sweaters, leather jackets and boots don’t exactly mix with warm weather). However, there’s one way to channel a fall look even when it’s hot out: Simply change up your makeup.
Just like clothing, you can transition your beauty routine with the changing seasons. Taking cues from the fall runways, we’ve rounded up the biggest makeup trends that you can recreate at home. The best part? Everything you need can be found at The Mall at Millenia. Below, find five different ways to get your glam on this fall!

Matte Red Lips
Name a more iconic beauty look than a red lip. While a glamorous rogue pout will never go out of style, this fall it’s all about choosing a matte shade. From Louis Vuitton to Oscar de la Renta, shine-free finishes were spotted all-over the fall runways.
Try pairing a matte red like M.A.C Cosmetic’s Ruby Woo Retro Matte Lipstick (find it at the store’s second floor boutique in The Mall at Millenia) with clean skin and understated makeup, so you can keep the focus on your lips.
If you’re more low-key when it comes to your beauty look, then you’ll love that blush is having a moment. Both Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana embraced a feminine flush this year.
Keep your eyes and lips soft too with complementary, subdued shades of pink. Head to Neiman Marcus’ beauty counter to shop the trend, since they’ll have options like this delicate rose-petal blush from Chanel.
From unexpected pops of color to overexaggerated lines, try rocking an eyeliner that’s anything but basic. If you love black, try following Dior’s lead by creating a Twiggy-esque look by flicking liner underneath the lower lashes.
For those looking to play around more with color, look to Carolina Herrera’s vibrant red shadow for inspiration. No matter which color story you prefer, Sephora has everything you need to take your eye look up a notch. We personally like their Sephora Collection 12hr Colorful Contour Eyeliner, since they come in 20 shades and come in three different finishes — matte, shimmer and glitter.
Typically, when you think of a smoky eye, a palette of dark grays comes to mind. However, this season the on-trend way to create smoldering lids is with earthy tones.
For example, Kate Spade embraced an autumnal reddish brown for their fall show while Tom Ford did a velvety, glossy eye with the brand’s Eye Color Palette in Nude Dip that you can find at Sephora. Whichever shades you choose, blend well to diffuse the color, so your eyelids give off an ethereal, yet high fashion vibe.
All Over Glitz
If you’re into pushing beauty boundaries, then get ready to bring on the bling. The sparkle spectrum went from subtle sheen to full blown glitz this season: There was minimalist glitter at Dries Van Noten, super shimmery pink eyes and lips at Rodarte, and crystal freckles at Christian Siriano.
While pretty, we get if these eye-catching looks seem intimidating for day-to-day. Instead, save them for Halloween or the holidays. Try rocking a little sparkle with Sephora’s Tarte’s Treasure Pot Glitter Gel or M.A.C Cosmetic’s loose glitter.
