Every year, when the weather gets cooler, I meet my dear friend and makeup artist extraordinaire, Carlo Geraci, for a makeup update. He calls it Shopping for Beauty, I call it brilliant. Basically, he meets you at the department store or boutique of your choice, updates your look for the season for a nominal fee and you buy your new look. I just did it last week, and I'm obsessed with my new products. I think you'll love them, too!

LAURA MERCIER MATTE EYE COLOUR
It's all about a warm, matte eye for Fall, and my new colors are buttercream, ginger and truffle. Super easy and clean looking. And you can get the case to hold all three.
CHANTECAILLE LIP CHIC LIP COLOR
Creamy with great staying power in a million shades
LE VOLUME DE CHANEL MASCARA
This mascara is everything and I got it in brown to go with the new eye colors. Very modern, or so I'm told.
HOURGLASS EQUILIBRIUM BIOMIMETIC SKIN ACTIVE SERUM
Believe me when I tell you this will change your skin.
HOURGLASS NO. 7 KABUKI BRUSH
Perfect for sweeping bronzer onto your cheeks and stuff.
TOM FORD WATERPROOF FOUNDATION & CONCEALER
I don't even know what to say about this. A teeny bit goes a long way and it wears forever. Plus it's full coverage without looking it with a perfectly radiant finish.
CHANTECAILLE HD PERFECTING BRONZER
The perfect bronzer - not too dark and there's no sparkle at all, which I love.
GLOSSIER STRETCH CONCEALER
I love this concealer so much. It doesn't settle into any one of the 3 million lines around my eyes.
GLOSSIER GENERATION G MATTE LIPSTICK IN LEO
This lipstick comes in a bunch of great colors, but I love Leo for Fall. The best part (aside form the fact that it lasts forever) is that you truly don't need a mirror to put it on.
HOURGLASS VANISH SEAMLESS FINISH FOUNDATION MAKEUP BRUSH
The perfect foundation brush for an airbrushed and impossible to see finish.
