This fall channel Brooke Shields and her famously full eyebrows!

Catch ya later coral gloss! Buh-Bye bronzer! I am so excited to pack away my summer makeup and start experimenting with the fall makeup trends. Let's face it, makeup is a luxury and can get pretty expensive. So I've spent tireless hours researching, comparing and testing to present you with products that will update your makeup bag but not drain your bank account. Here are the fall makeup trends and the products you can create them with for under $10.



Trend #1: Full Brows

In my world, gloriously groomed brows aren't a trend. They are a timeless classic. On every runway and in all the magazines, bold brows are being celebrated. Not everyone rolls out of bed with Brooke Shields eyebrows, but there are tricks to faking it.

Fill in your brows! This E.L.F brow kit is a wax and powder combo. With an angled brush, touch the wax and then touch the powder. Lightly sketch the product into your brows. Once the product is placed, comb through them with a spoolie or a spare toothbrush to soften the look. The kit comes in three shades and retails $3.00 on drugstore.com.

So you're blessed with bushy brows and have no need for makeup to enhance them. Lucky! There is something you can do to look a little more polished and it's super easy. Next time you finish your tube of mascara keep the brush, wash it thoroughly and turn it into your new up-cycled brow taming tool. Spritz the brush with a bit of hairspray, style your brows and go on making the world jealous with your arches of glory.

Trend #2: Bold, matte lips

I am so happy that the bold lip "moment" will continue as we head into fall. This year I have had more women sit in my chair and declare that for the first time they are ready to try red, orange, purple ....anything that stands out! As a Makeup Artist this is very exciting because all day long I hear words like neutral and barely-there, and it can get a little boring. These days I can barely keep a red lipstick in stock. Hooray!

Wet N' Wild MegaLast lipstick in Cherry Bomb

Wet N' Wild MegaLast lipstick in Cherry Bomb

If you're curious about a bold lipstick, but not sure if you're brave enough to pull it off, I highly recommend the Wet N' Wild MegaLast lipsticks. They are richly pigmented, matte and long-wearing. The best part...they are $2 at Walgreens. I have every single color in the collection. People compliment my lip color all the time and they are blown away when I tell them Wet N' Wild. This line of lipsticks is an absolute must try!

My favorite fall colors are Cherry Bomb, Cinnamon Spice and Purty Persimmon.

Trend #3: Cat-Eyes with a modern twist

Winged eyeliner has been an iconic makeup look since it's debut in the 1950's. This fall the classic look has been re-invented by adding new colors, shapes and textures to the traditional cat-eye. There was a beautiful Indigo-Blue winged eye at Jason Wu, an interesting geometric shape at the Aquascutum show and grungy smudgy eyes at Rodarte.

The good news is this fall it's okay to have a thick, less than perfect cat-eye. To nail this trend, the liner should look lived in and effortless. Perfect for gals with unsteady hands and little patience for symmetry. If the line is uneven...just keep adding more!

Trend #4: Minimalist Skin

"Fake and Cake" foundation is never a good look and this fall the more minimal your base is the better. The skin trend has been centered around dewy, glowy makeup for several years now. Thankfully as we head towards fall a new finish has emerged, satin. Satin skin is not super shiny, but not matte either. It's a nice in-between and is very flattering on most skin types.








E.L.F Studio High Definition Loose Powder $6.00

E.L.F Studio High Definition Loose Powder $6.00

How to achieve a modern minimalist skin look with a satin finish: Simple! If you use a heavier foundation, "sheer it out" by mixing it with one pump of your moisturizer. Blend all over your face with either clean hands or a foundation brush. Strategically conceal areas where you need more coverage ie. under-eyes, blemishes and discoloration. To create a satin finish only powder the center of your face. Leave your cheeks with a bit of sheen. This is a very fresh look and will help your skin appear naturally beautiful, and not caked with makeup.

This E.L.F Studio High Definition Loose Powder is awesome! It is completely translucent, so it's suitable for all skin tones. The powder melts seamlessly into skin and is ideal for strategic T-Zone mattifying.

You can purchase the E.L.F High Definition Loose Powder for $6.00 on eyeslipsface.com

Trend #5: Ethereal metallic eyeshadow

Metallic eyeshadows:  some people love them and some people loathe them. I happen to think they can be really flattering on most people. Now before I get a zillion comments about how juvenile glitter eyeshadow is, let me reiterate...metallic, not glittery. Glitter eyeshadows are reserved for 14 year old girls, people who love to experiment with crazy makeup looks (Me!) and Halloween.

To wear this trend you will want to choose a slightly sheer metallic shadow that you can blend all over your eyelid. I would avoid anything in the frosty blue family, that might be a little too Mimi from the Drew Carey Show. Think earthtones; copper, gold, brown, plum and maybe an iridescent silver.






Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow $7.98

Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadow $7.98

I am CRAZY for the Flower Beauty (Drew Barrymore's line!) Color Play Creme Eyeshadows. They are little pots of whipped creme eyeshadow with a beautiful metallic finish. I find them to be super easy to use (smear on with your fingers) and extremely long-wearing. I especially love the khaki green shade "Time Willow Tell"

You can buy Flower Beauty Color Play Creme Eyeshadows for $7.98 at Walmart and on walmart.com

For less than $10, anyone can afford to experiment a little with this fall seasons makeup trends. I challenge you to integrate one new idea into your regular makeup routine! Trying new products and seeking out new inspiration keeps you from falling into a day to day makeup rut. Remember, makeup shouldn't feel like a chore it should be lighthearted and fun.

**Disclaimer: I bought all of these products with my own money. I WISH these companies would send me freebies; that would be awesome.**

    • Trump's Russia scandal takes an unexpected turn

      On Friday afternoon, FBI Director James Comey delivered a classified, hour-long briefing to the Senate Intelligence Committee on the Russia scandal, and soon after, the Senate Intelligence Committee sent "formal requests to more than a dozen organizations, agencies and individuals, asking them to preserve all materials related to the committee's investigation" into the controversy. Reading between the lines, this makes it sound as if the Republican-led panel is trying to knock down the idea that a special select committee is necessary to investigate the scandal without political interference. A day later, Reuters reported that the FBI is pursuing "at least three separate probes" related to Russian intervention in American politics, "according to five current and former government officials with direct knowledge of the situation." Two of three, according to the report, relate to alleged cyber-crimes, while the third is the ongoing counter-espionage probe.

    • When a Pimp's "Bottom Girl" Does the Dirty Work, She's Often the One Who Ends Up Punished

      A particularly poignant example comes from a 2012 case Melton tried as a San Antonio prosecutor. Melton went after a pimp who had sold a 16-year-old girl for sex over two years. The girl suffered horrific abuse at his hands—she was raped, impregnated, and forced to have an abortion. When she tried to run away, the pimp carved his initials into her forearm. The pimp got a 20-year sentence. A year later, the same girl was 19 and headed to prison herself. A federal judge sentenced her to three years for helping her new pimp recruit a San Antonio high school student. Melton said what happened to the girl, who never received treatment, broke her heart.

    • Melania Trump's sister shows rare behind-the-scenes look

      (CNN)Melania Trump is beginning to forge her own path as America's first lady, assembling a team of aides and advisers. But the name of one longtime confidante, and perhaps her most trusted friend, won't be announced with a news release or statement or a new title: her sister, Ines Knauss. Knauss, Trump's older sister, lives just blocks from Trump Tower in the Trump Park Avenue property, public records confirm. She was Trump's maid of honor at her 2005 Palm Beach wedding, People magazine reported at the time. And the first lady called Knauss "an incredible woman and a friend" in her July speech at the Republican National Convention. And the sister of the famously private Slovenian-born first

But a February 11 baby shower for him and Tori apparently was too over-the-top, both in its execution and in its public display of excess, according to the Daily Mail. That’s because tabloid reports of the lavish event set off Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace. And now, Mary Jo has gone to court, alleging that Dean is thousands of dollars behind in paying child support for Jack, the first of his five biological kids.
