Fall makeup high/low: 5 beauty must-haves

Fall is all about change, so it's time to adjust your usual makeup routine so it's fresh and sophisticated.

As temperatures dip, look to mascaras, eyeliners and lipsticks to warm your cool-weather woes. Whether you'd like to splurge a little or stretch your dollar, check out five beauty picks that every woman should have in her fall makeup bag.

1. Mascara
In need of an instant pick-me-up? Coat your lashes with a volumizing mascara to make your tired eyes pop.

High: Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking, $36.
(Available at department stores, at Holt Renfrew as of October 2011 and at select The Bay and Murale locations starting November 2011.)
Low: Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara, $7.
(Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers.)

2. Eyeliner
Don't be shy about using eyeliner during the day – a light line helps define your eyes. For extra drama at night, try a cat's-eye look.

High: Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, $25.
(Available at department stores, at The Bay, Holt Renfrew, Murale and Sephora.)
Low: Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner, $10.50.
(Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers.)


3. Foundation

Just because you can't feel the heat of the sun's rays, doesn’t mean you should skip the SPF. Choose a foundation that's already infused with one and you'll never forget to apply it.

High: Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus SPF 15 Makeup, $39.50.
(Available at Clinique counters in October 2011. Also available at department stores.)
Low: Covergirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation with SPF 10, $16.
(Available at drugstores and mass-market retailers.)


4. Brow pen
Over-tweezed eyebrows are a sight for sore eyes. Using a brow pen, fill in sparse areas and transform your too-thin brows into beautifully lush ones.

High: Josie Maran Magic Brows Universal Argan Brow Pen, $27.
(Available at QVC.com. Also available at department stores.)
Low: Gosh Brow Pen, $15.
(Available at Shoppers Drug Mart. Also available at drugstores.)

5. Matte lipstick
Retire your sheer lip gloss and opt for a matte lipstick. Try one in a bright colour for a statement-making pout.

High: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick, $40.
(Available exclusively at The Bay on Sept. 26, 2011, and at all Chanel beauty counters on Oct. 31, 2011. Also available at department stores.)
Low: Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick, $6.
(Available at joefresh.com and Real Canadian Superstore. Also available at drugstores.)
