Fall's Beauty Must Haves

Summer is slowly but surely drifting away and Fall is approaching. I am anticipating the cooler weather, drapey fashionable knits, the darker shades of the city, and most importantly: Fall's cosmetic trends. Fall 2009 Cosmetic collections are currently being released and below are my picks for the hottest shades to have in your makeup clutch. There's a bit of something good in each cosmetic collection. My theme for this time around: Fall in line for the best liner and Fall in love with a dark pout. Check out Nars fall collection below. The top haves in this collection is Brumes Eyeshadow Duo and Fast Ride lipstick. I rocked a wicked smokey eye last week and while the Fast Ride shade appears dark, it applies smooth and has a stain like finish. Eyeshadow duos are $32, Single Eyeshadow is $22, Nail Polish is $16, and Lipstick is $24

Another great fall collection is by
Sue Devitt Beauty. The beautiful Hydrating Marine Minerals Destination Palette in Serengeti ($37.50) , and Magazine and Celebrity must have Eye Intensifier Pencils in Kenya and Tanzania ($22.00) and Luxury Lash Mascara in Black Widow Black Chocolate ($22) so delish. This is perfect, summer is all about the bronze but fall is about the woodsy, seductive browns. Check out this Serengeti Smokey Eye.

I absolutely adore Laura Mercier "Fresco Collection". Inspired by the nature-like colors found in Italian Fresco paintings, Laura Mercier introduces her
Fresco Collection. Eyes are soft and diffused, layered in earth toned shades of Satinee Crème Eye Colour with a pop of teal for accent. Crème Cheek Colour Pots in Sienna Sunset and Soft Apricot enhance the cheeks with a hint of creamy colour and tinted, soft-focus loose powder. Lips complete the look in rich autumnal hues with Laura's perfect artist palette, Lip Watercolours; containing a prepping lip balm and six pigment saturated stains. Welcome Fall looking ethereal, feminine, imperfectly beautiful.

Last and certainly not least is MAC COSMETICS. Artist, Richard Phillips created the inspiration for this collection. Racy, hyper-glam images revved-up in a modern take on vintage magazine pages, transformed into a super-vixen collection of colour for eyes, lips and cheeks. Paint it bigger-than-life with style and sensuality. MAC always satisfies my love for Colour and Fall 2009 is magnificent. My faves out of their collection are the Eyeshadow Palettes and Lipstick.
Check out the video for the collection on their website:

unh unh! can we get some affordable make up on here?? I know make-up has a pretty short-to moderate purse life, but at those prices I'll be tempted to use them things down till they are gone! or until something starts growing on it...then that's a definite toss out
