Fall '09 Beauty Trends: Very Berry Cheeks

The initial push of Fall has kicked off- we are now almost a month vested in Fall, although today felt like a typical day in San Diego here in New York- please be assured the chilly winds are just around the next week.

So what does that mean? To reflect the uniqueness of a new season, its time to turn the brights dim for fall- lets use nature as an example. Fallen leaves of maple brown, cloudier days and the sun setting at 6pm- regretfully its time to turn the maquillage down for day, play it up for night and highlight features while transitioning from day to night.

One reflection of this seasonal change and beauty must have is the very berry cheeks. Just like the wind chill whips around and hits your dimples and leaves them numb and perplexed for a quick minute or two. Let's take that minute or so make make it last for the day with pretty plums, berries and deep mauves!

Here are a few of my favorites:

- NARS Montenegro - a cream blush that gives a nice mulberry flush, very great for all skin types as its very easy to blend.

- Cover Girl's Cheekers in True Plum and Plum Plush- poweder formula, sheer plums that are budget friendly- under $10!

- MAC's Ambered Rose-is in the MAC Sheertone blush family, a great sheer raspberry red with golden and red shimmer.
