Q: I’d like to swap out my go-to shimmery pink lipgloss for a more sophisticated lip color this fall. What shades are in style for this fall?

A: According to Harper’s Bazaar, lips on the runway were dominated by dramatic darks including deep berries and lush reds, along with soft neutrals like nude and peach.

Q: Now that it’s fall I’d like to extend the life of my summer glow. Can you recommend a good product to add a subtle touch of color to my complexion this autumn?

A: Makeup artist Sue Devitt tells Redbook Magazine that a tinted moisturizer or bronzing gel in combination with a light peach or pink blush creates a gorgeous natural glow during fall. Look for products that contain light-reflecting pigments.

Q: During summer break, I tend to style my hair more frequently. Now that fall is here, my locks seem to have lost their luster. Any tips for restoring the look and feel of my hair?

A: First, give your tresses a break from heat styling and products. Then, use a purifying shampoo like Frederic Fekkai Apple Cider Shampoo to strip away oil, dirt and other buildup, and reveal healthy, shiny hair from root to tip.

Q: Is it true that lipstick can double as blush? If this is true, can you also use a blush as lipstick?

A: Absolutely. According to Redbook, lipstick and cream blush can be used interchangeably in a pinch. For best results, a matte lipstick in a shade of pink, such as Rodial Glam Stick Bite, or peach can work well when you forget your rouge.

Q: I’m looking for a good moisturizer for fall. What’s the difference between a cream, lotion and serum product?

A: Creams, lotions and serums are all different types of moisturizing formulas that are absorbed by the skin to deliver various benefits beneath the surface layer. Lotions are the most common types and use water as a base, which means they’re light and absorb quickly. Creams are thicker and use oil to lock in moisture, which makes them ideal for dry skin that has to endure cold, dry elements. Serums tend to be more concentrated and come in gel form. They usually have a very specific purpose, such as anti-aging or fighting inflammation. Look for the product that best fits your needs, as these three are not readily interchangeable.
