Our editors share their fall makeup must-haves

This fall, the Canadian Living editors are focused on learning new beauty skills and improving their skin-care regimens.

Face Time

"I want to treat myself to makeup lessons so I can learn to apply it like a pro instead of my daily desperate attempt." – Sarah Gunn, Home & Garden Director

Eye Spy

"I want an awesome, easy to apply liquid liner that won't melt off my eyelids halfway through the day. (I'd also like to devote a day or three to watching YouTube tutorials so I can actually apply said eyeliner properly.)" – Stacy Lee Kong, Senior Editor


Maybelline New York Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner, $12,

Feet First

"As a runner, I need all the help I can get when it comes to foot care so I’m always on the hunt for a great moisturizer for feet. This one is on my radar. It's ultra moisturizing without being too greasy, and it has a soothing scent of lavender, bergamot and sandalwood." – Jenny Tang, Web Editor

Feeling Misty

"Since I keep my makeup to a minimum, I’m planning on mastering a skin-care regimen that makes my skin glow. In the winter, this means soothing elixirs, sprays and serums that I can apply—and reapply—throughout the day. I have my eye on Ren Skincare’s Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist. It hydrates, repairs and helps to shield the skin from pollutants and free radicals." – Alexandra Donaldson, Fashion & Beauty Contributor 


REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist, $48,


Face First

"I adore the transformative powers of makeup and hair products, but for me, the most important piece of the beauty puzzle always comes down to skin care. The beauty trend I want to emulate is glowing skin, and in order to get that I need a strong and healthy canvas. Come fall, temperatures dip and thermostats rise, which is a real bummer for my already dry skin. That's when I start masking once or twice a week to help replenish my skin with moisture and active ingredients and impart it with a healthy looking glow. That's why I'm really excited to try Fresh's newest face mask, jammed with 50 percent crushed citrus fruits that give skin a radiant boost." – Julia McEwen, Fashion & Beauty Director


Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask, $80,

Get Glowing

"Although the palette is expensive, the colours are perfect to keep skin glowing as we transition into fall. The icing on the cake? The powders are so incredibly soft and easy to apply." – Jennifer Bartoli, Food Editor

Pretty Peepers

"It's not so much a product that I’m after—I’m trying to spend a little more attention on grooming. For example, grooming my eyebrows more often! Also a good mascara option never hurt anyone." – Sandi Pilon, Senior Associate Art Director
