kabrushkitThis time of year, there are gift sets galore in the cosmetics department.

Lip glosses, eye shadow palettes, skin care tech tools and more. A very exciting time for product junkies.

Perhaps this year you find yourself in a position to splurge on something you've had your eye on for quite some time. Like this Kevyn Aucoin 7-piece brush set.

Kevyn Aucoin is known for many things, but especially tools. The quality is unsurpassed. Luxuriously soft goat hair bristles make a bad application impossible. Compare these to your current brushes. You'll find no shedding whatsoever and the best application ever.

I own several brushes, with many more on my list. Could this be the year?

There is no better time to experiment with your eyes than the holidays. Of course, experimenting does not mean taking on this challenge 30 minutes before leaving for your event.

I happen to love a little sparkle for holiday parties. The easiest way to achieve this look is with Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow. There are so many beautiful shades to choose from. Use it as all over color, or lightly layer it over your favorite eyeshadow.

The key is planning ahead. Pull the looks you wish to recreate. Then spend some time playing around. Once you conquer the eyes, move onto your complexion. Radiant skin looks flawless. And will be the envy of others. Swipe Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Power in Candlelight or Chanel's Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Color across your upper cheekbones, brow bone and bridge of your nose for instant illumination.

If you want a real treat, book an appointment with one of the fabulous makeup artists at Jeffre Scott. You will be sure to turn heads!

Honestly, I love a red lip year round. It's glamorous. Punchy. And full of personality.

Beauty For Real Really Red is just that. Serious red! It's a luxurious gloss that sticks around for hours — and boy is it bold! 

If you are itching to try a "hello, look at me" red lip gloss this season, you must try this.

Aside from your usual suspects, pick up an Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Glossy Stain. It goes on smooth, yet adheres to your lips immediately. It leaves a nice shine, but not overpowering. In fact, this is one gloss you can wear with your hair down on a windy day. It truly holds for hours — through sipping, chatting and light bites.

As far as color, there are many to choose from. Perhaps it's time to step out of your comfort zone. I never shy away from bright shades. However, this time I landed on a deep, wine-stained color, Brun Glace. Absolutely perfect for the cooler months of the year. And different for me. It almost matches the color of my hair.

Indulge in fall glory with some of your favorite beauty products!
