What are the top beauty essentials for the fall season? 
This season you’ll see a lot of color, but the colors will be softer and lighter.  There will be less of a focus on lashes and less smoky looks.  Lips will be one of two things – soft with orange and pink or bold with crimson.
What tips can you give to achieve a simple flawless look?
Instead of foundation, opt for a tinted moisturizer, but don’t go more than one shade darker than your natural skin tone.  Use a powdered bronzer to create a natural sun-kissed look.  Pick a shimmer or matte bronzer, but be careful where you place.  With a matte bronzer, use the “3” shape to hit the forehead, under the cheek bone and under the jaw.  With a luminous bronzer, use it on the cheek bone, bridge of nose, and brow bone.  Curl lashes and use one coat of mascara.  As for color, use products that contain any tones that are in your skin. For the eyes – earth tones like sands, taupes, and browns.  For cheeks, look for something in between peach and pink. For lips, use a sheer gloss. It’s also important to pay attention to brows, and make sure they are groomed.  Groomed brows make you look more finished but still natural.

Are bronzers still a must have product for the fall?
Yes!  It’s when you need it the most. You want to look healthier. It will give skin a little bit of warmth. Be sure to lighten it from the shade you use during the summer.
