Fall Makeup Must-Haves

Makeup, lipsticks CBS/The Early Show

Now that autumn is here, not only is it time to switch your wardrobe, it's time to switch the contents of your makeup bag.

On The Early Show Monday, stylist to the stars David Evangelista told women the five things they have to have for the new season.

The good news is that makeup for fall 2006 is glamorous, but no-fuss, and requires minimal effort. It's all about bold, strong colors for lips and nails, defined eyes and full brows. So, it's time to ditch the gossamer glosses and shimmery shadows from summer, and modify your cosmetics for fall.

Evangelista covered five categories of products that every woman must have in her makeup bag this season: bold lip colors, deep eyeliners, a brow kit for full eyebrows, a thin black headband, and dark nail polish.

FALL MUST-HAVE NO. 1: BOLD LIP COLOR

In the past few seasons, the trend for lip color has been towards a pale, neutral, glossy mouth. But this autumn, the pop of color that you used to get on your cheeks and eyes has now transferred to the mouth. Deep, bold cherry reds, cranberries and plums can be worn by any woman; you just have to know your skin's undertones (blue, red, yellow) and choose a red or plum that best suits your coloring. And there's a bold lip color for every woman no matter what form of lip color she prefers; whether you prefer matte lipsticks or color-packed glosses, there's a plethora of product for you to choose from. A few notable bold lip colors for fall 2006:

  • Lancome Color Fever gloss in Intense and Mercury Rising ($22) — a vivid punch of color, plus even glossiness that doesn't feel clumpy or sticky. The perfect combination of gloss and lipstick
  • MAC lipstick in Diva ($14) — a matte, intense reddish burgundy that's a makeup artist favorite this season
  • Nars lipstick in Jungle Red ($23) — a semi-matte, bright cherry red that's perfect for women who aren't fond of matte, matte looks.
  • Bourjois Lovely Rouge lipstick in Rouge Ailie ($14) moisturizes lips and gives your mouth intense, silky color in one coat
  • Molton Brown Wonderlips Whisper lipstick in Juniper ($20) contains ingredients that plump up your pout.
  • Wet N Wild Lipstick #508 A ($.99) is an inexpensive lipstick that is feather and bleed-proof.

    FALL MUST-HAVE NO. 2: EYELINER

    If you're going for a bold lip, you don't want to play up your eyes with too much color. The best way to make your eyes pop without loading on the dark shadows and heavy mascara of past seasons is with an eyeliner that will define the shape of your eyes. When it comes to color, think of neutral, autumnal shades ... or colors that compliment the dark, black fashions that are so popular this fall (gunmetal, grey, even black). You don't want to coat your eyes in liner — just define and make the eyes pop. As with lipstick, eyeliners for the fall are coming in all sorts of formulations and types: liquid liner, pencils, even eyeliner pens ... whichever you feel most comfortable with, there's an eyeliner for every woman. A few notable liners:

  • MAC Fluidline ($14.50) provides the precision of a liquid liner with a silkier, softer finish (must be used with an eyeliner brush).
  • Physician's Formula Felt Tip Eye Marker ($6.95) is an easy-to-use felt-tip eyeliner pen that gives the perfectly defined look of a liquid eyeliner without the mess.
  • Chanel Le Crayon Yeux ($27.50) is enriched with Vitamin E, and is ophthalmologist tested and safe for contact lens wearers.
  • Guerlain Divinora in Mauve Profond and Brun Chocolat ($32) has a super-slim brush so you can apply liquid liner without getting an overly-thick line.
  • Aveda Eye Definer ($12) is made with all-natural ingredients that won't irritate sensitive eyes and skin.
  • MAC Liquidlast Liner ($16.50) is a rich color liquid eye liner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line.
  • Sisley Photo Kohl Star Eyeliner ($39) defines eyes with a splash of shimmer embedded in the pencil, giving your lash line a "sequined" look.
  • Eye Lingerie Eye Pencil in Godiva Lace ($19.50) is a heavily pigmented pencil with a brush end to smudge the color and soften the line.
