Fall Bold Brows
I am ALL about Brows, some days I spend most of my mornings and evenings before a outing perfecting my brows. I love that now we have all of the steps ( liner / pomade / powder / brow gel) all in one product with the new Tarte Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel ($21) .

Depending on your natural brow shape you may want to still use a liner as a outline on the bottom - Top Liner Options - priced from Luxe to Bargain .
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyebrow Pencil ($20) - This pencil is great for applying fine strokes of color to achieve the most natural brow.
- Maybelline Eye Studio Master Drama Cream Pencil Eyeliner in Bold Brown ($6.23) - I LOVE this pencil ,its the same difference as using one of the higher end gel / pomades for the brows. A little goes a LONG way, You draw one fine line below the brows, and you use a brush to blend the color into your brows. The end results is FLAWLESS .
- Wet n Wild Color Icon Liner Brow & Eye Pencil ($.99 - Drugstores / Target) - Not only is this pencil a bargain ,but the colors "Dark Brown" as well as "Mink Brown" are just amazing brow options. You will achieve the same result as you would get from higher priced items.
I am a total Lash Girl ! The longer and wispier the lashes - the better , and I am a proud advocate for wearing falsies. I love to have great long lashes even on days when I have a pretty bare face with no makeup it really accentuates the eyes.
I really am in love with Ardell Demi Wispies BLACK that I recently picked up at a Rickys NYC shopping extravaganza I treated myself to a few days ago.
For the days there is not enough time , or you just feel like getting the same look / effect with minimal work. There's always a lash extending mascara. My all time favorites are :

Bold Vibrant Lips
I usually don't follow color rules according to season when it comes to makeup , but for some reason all I want to wear is deep shades of reds. berrys, purples and pinks. Anything that makes you think about Fall / Winter and cold weather. The darker the better, the bolder the better , and most importantly the more vibrant the better.
Smashbox has come out with two new amazing products just in time for the new season , the Always Sharp Lip Liner ($20) and Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer ($24) . My top picks for creating the best Autumn Lip are: "Beet It" , "After Dark" , "Currant" "Bordeaux" and "Legendary" in the Long Wear Lip Lacquers , and " Figgy", "Violet" , "Crimson" and "Fuchsia" in the Always Sharp Lip Liners.
These two can be used alone or paired together for bold vibrant Fall Lips. BeautyByJJ created two beautiful looks - one deep look featuring "Bordeaux" and an Ombre Look featuring a variety of liners and lacquers. See the video here :
FLAWLESS Contour and Blush
I recently invested in Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit ($40) , and it is beyond AMAZING. With the new colors added to the selection and the option to customize your palette yourself it really is like the Makeup Lovers Dream.
I chose the following colors - ( Top from left : Banana , Mellow Yellow, 10k / Bottom from Left: Earth, Cinnamon, Carob ) . I will enjoy using this palette to warm up my face during the Fall / Winter when the temperatures drop and my skin gets a bit lighter. Carob is amazing for Darker skin tones , we usually have problems with most Contour Kits where the colors are not always universal . Anastasia went over and beyond with this. Theres actually more colors I want to get since these palettes are interchangeable. After seeing MakeupD0LL use "Espresso" in a video , it has been added back to my list. Espresso really gives her a natural , flawless contour and it makes it more realistic to use along the bridge of the nose versus using Carob.
Im a bit of a self-proclaimed "Blush Addict" and I love adding a pop of flirty color to a contoured cheek. Tarte Colored Clay Bronzer Blush in "Pink Bronze"($30) is divine on Dark skin tones. It compliments ABH Contour powder in "Carob" extremely well.
