Revamp your fall beauty routine!

Allure Magazine sat down with Jason Ascher, beauty guru for Barneys New York, and got his tips on updating our fall beauty wardrobe.

Summer’s over, what products do we need to shelve? “Those very light, summer-weight products. It’s important to switch to a heavier moisturizer which will protect your skin from dry, brisk air.”

What fall products should every woman have? “A good exfoliating product; I like Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads. They create good cell turnover without scrubbing the skin, which can be too harsh. A good lip balm—By Terry Rose Balm is great—and a good SPF are also essential.”

Any favorite makeup trends for fall? “I’m really getting into brighter lips, especially fuchsia. My clients find that it’s easier to create a bold lip than a smoky eye. I also love navy eyeliners and shadows. A good navy is a softer version of black and it really brightens the whites of your eyes.”

What are the best fall fragrances? “For me, the fall is all about modernizing a classic scent. Take a floral or an amber and make it less girly. I love the newArquiste scents for fall. Every fragrance is classic with a tweak.”

What product or tool is the most overlooked? “Foundation brushes. With a brush, you end up using less and spreading it out and blending it better.”

Emily Blunt Scores YSL Opium Campaign

Now that gorgeous auburn actress Emily Blunt has been announced as its new face, Yves Saint Laurent’s OPIUM fragrance is about to get a little more spicy.

The 28-year-old British beauty will model for the timeless, classic fragrance in television, print and outdoor ads shot by Romain Gavras and Patrick Demarchelier, respectively.

“I am very honored to have been chosen to be the face of Opium,” Blunt said in a statement. “It is really exciting to embody a fragrance which has stood the test of time without its allure ever being diminished.” (YSL introduced the perfume in 1977.)

“OPIUM is more than a fragrance; it’s a myth that embraces the whole history and values of our House,” added Renaud de Lesquen, President of YSL & Designer Brands. “Over and above her beauty and elegance, we were impressed by the career and artistic options of Emily Blunt.”

This is the first beauty spokesmodel gig for The Adjustment Bureau actress, who’s married to The Office’s John Krasinski. She follows in the footsteps of model Sophie Dahl, who was photographed for the seductive scent in 2000.

I love the Original Diva Plaited headband! Its so easy to use  the elastic bottom makes it comfortable to wear for long periods. I have had a lot of fun trying different styles using the braid and I just secure it with a few bobby pins and it stays put.

The new Plaited Headband by Original Diva is an affordable option for getting that great braided headband look without all the work. The lightweight hair accessory is made with heat resistant synthetic hair and is available in 4 different colors: brown, light brown, dark red brown and light blond.
