Prep your face by using a moisturizing cleanser that will leave your skin soft, glowing and moisturized, such as POND’s Cold Cream Cleanser. This cleanser will provide your skin with a deep clean and provide the needed nourishment with its 50% moisturizer. Start off with a lightweight foundation and add an illuminating concealer to the under-eye area to brighten up the eyes. Apply a shimmery rose-pink blush along the cheekbone.

Bigger blush brushes allow for a more natural application. Use a shadow brush with a long, domed head to mix medium and deep rose shadows by sweeping it back and forth on your eyelids. Gently buff your lips with a damp washcloth and apply lip balm. Let it sink in well, and apply a rose-color lipstick.

To remove makeup use POND’s Luminous Wet Cleansing Towelettes which leave skin feeling clean and hydrated. Pamper your skin with Dove Beauty Bars, which contain ¼ pure moisturizing cream and mild cleansers that leave skin clean, soft and smooth.

Wash and condition your hair with products that will cleanse, provide moisture, and give your hair the extra volume it needs such as Dove Hair Oxygen Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. Detangle your hair and apply a leave-in product that will moisturize your hair and create a flexible hold to keep voluminous hairstyles intact, such as Dove Hair Oxygen Moisture Leave-In Foam.

Dry your hair as desired and gather a large piece of hair that sits on the crown of your head and braid it towards the right side until you reach the back of your head. Get a piece of hair located on the right side of your head, and braid it until you reach the back. Do the same on left side. Unite all three braids with a hair band and let the rest of your hair loose to complete the Fall-in-Love-by-Day look.

Wash and condition your hair with products that will cleanse and moisturize your hair, making it easier for styling. Dry your hair as desired. Use your fingers to comb through your hair and bring it to the back of your head into a ponytail.

Separate the hair in the ponytail into two sections and tease. Wrap the separate sections of the teased hair in opposite directions and secure the hair with bobby pins. Finish off by using Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Hair Spray to maintain a flexible hold.
