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.**

    • The Wisconsin recount may have a surprise in store after all

      Thanks to the efforts of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, a recount is underway in Wisconsin. It is highly unlikely to change the outcome — as Hillary Clinton’s campaign has stated — but it is much more likely to overturn some conventional wisdom about counting votes. In particular, we may learn, yet again, that computers are better than humans at counting ballots. Wisconsin’s most recent experience with a statewide recount provides some useful background for the current recount. In 2011, David Prosser ran against JoAnne Kloppenburg for a seat on the state supreme court. After the initial count, Prosser was 7,316 votes ahead of Kloppenburg, out of 1.5 million votes cast.

      If you're looking for a case study in how not to respond to a bad Yelp review, here it goes. Twenty-year-old Lan Cai was driving home from her waitressing job last summer when she was hit by a drunk driver; the resulting multi-car collision left her with two broken bones in her back. Having never been in a major accident, Cai enlisted the services of the Tuan A. Khuu law firm of Houston to help her navigate the insurance claim and other aspects of the process. But according to Cai, the experience turned sour quickly. In a review she posted on Yelp, the young waitress claimed the lawyers wouldn't respond to her calls or emails, and when they finally did meet with her, "they were very pushy." Read

And within that scientific community, the small group of international theoretical physicists with whom I have spent my working life might sometimes be tempted to regard themselves as the pinnacle.
