Fall is here! And with it comes a change in our skin and beauty habits. Time to repair from those long days in the sun and get back to wearing color! Here are my 5 Must Have Beauty Products for Fall!

1. Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate
Being a makeup artist for years has allowed me to witness first hand the damaging effects of things like the sun, pollution and smoke. And where many products fail to deliver on their word, Kiehl’s Powerful Strength Line Reducing Concentrate is truly magic in a bottle.
2. Yves Saint Laurent Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking Mascara
It seems like every month there’s a new mascara that promises to make your lashes full, long and defined! And while there are a few really great ones out there, I always find myself going back to this one. My lashes are one of my favorite features and I always get compliments when I wear it. The pretty gold packaging makes me feel glamorous, too.
3. Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick
Armani Beauty is always at the forefront of innovation and beautiful. Their new Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick-“Color and Care,” marks the start of a new era in lipstick. It offers the comfort of a balm yet doesn’t sacrifice on color saturation. The velvety soft feel is totally comfortable for everyday and in 36 shades you’re sure to find your new favorite lipstick.
4. MAC Limited Edition Eyeshadow Quads for Fall
MAC has always been known for their beautiful eye shadows. And the new limited edition quad’s don’t fail. The colors are rich, long lasting and blend so beautifully together. For $38 bucks, it’s a no-brainer.
5. Estee Lauder Double Wear
There’s a reason this classic foundation continues to be one of the best out there. With it’s full coverage, flawless finish, you’ll have people wondering how you got such perfect skin. As a makeup artist I need a base that will not have a melt down in high heat or long days, and this is my go to.
