What's the easiest fix for instantly brightening your makeup look?
“The easiest fix for instantly brightening up your makeup look is to use traces of the Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Face Color in High Beam White (WT905) and Soft Beam Gold (BE206) on the upper cheekbones before blush application. It’s also great above the bow of the lip, the bridge of the nose, and right under the browbone.”

What are your secrets for combating dry skin in the cooler months? Any products or tricks-of-the-trade you can recommend?
“One secret is Shiseido The Skincare Multi-Energizing cream. Give your skin a light massage with this cream and let that sit for a few minutes. Tissue off any excess before your makeup application.”

What are your top favorite fall makeup trends?
“As a makeup artist, I personally don’t believe in trends. But for fall and winter, I love pops of color on the eyes and lips. Metallic and bright eye colors blended out with some black liner are beautiful for the season. Lips accentuated with a neutral beige lipstick and then a pop of red or coral in the center is a great look for the fall and winter, as well. For eyebrows, I love to blend a combination of natural shades and brush that through the eyebrows to add gloss and rich color.”

Which products are okay to skimp on, price-wise?
“My favorite drugstore buys are Aquaphor, Lubriderm body lotion, and black Q-Tips that I get from drugstores in Japan—they make a great makeup tool.”

Are there any at-home remedies our readers can use on their skin?
“Give yourself an olive oil facial massage (use less than a teaspoon!) after the shower—remember to always tissue off any excess oil before applying your makeup.”

What are your top five all-time favorite products?
“My top five favorite products of all time have to be the Shiseido Makeup Luminizing Satin Face Colors—especially High Beam White (WT905) and Soft Beam Gold (BE206), which are great for highlighting; The classic Perfect Rouge lipsticks in Dragon (RD514), Fuchsia (RS320), and Venetian Rose (RS711), Dual Balancing Foundation, Accentuating Cream Eyeliner in Black #1, and the Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Strata (BR307).”

What are your favorite runway beauty looks of the fall season?
“I loved the look of a natural face with a scruffy, vibrant purple eye that we did at the Narciso Rodriguez show. Also, for the Sonia Rykiel show in Paris, I did an assortment of six different, very bright lipsticks on the models. Each girl got a different lip—I randomly chose the bright-lip look as each girl sat down in my chair.”
Editor's Note: Try Giorgio Armani's Rouge d'Armani for a rich lip hue.

Do you have any recommendations for how to update your summer-to-fall makeup routine?
“An accent of rich color and use of metallic highlights on the face is a great way to update your look from summer to fall.”

What celebrity's beauty look do you think is always right?
“Tilda Swinton, because she has a strong idea of herself and it doesn’t belong to any trend other than how she feels. My beauty icons of the moment are Bjork and Carrie Mulligan.”
