Today marks the official first day of Fall. Do you feel a crispness in the air already? Here, in San Francisco, not so much, as we're going through a bit of a heat wave these days. However, every time we experience an official change of season, this get gets me to thinking about switching up the old hair color palette. So tell me: No matter the season, do you go lighter when the flowers start blooming in March, get your streak on when the warmer-weather rolls in, and/or go dramatically dark for the cooler months? Or is it just that you have your own hair color schedule?

If you're a fan of M.I.A.'s daring maquillage or Chloë Sevigny's bold makeup, you already know Robin Black's work. The look she creates, like the perfectly lined pout, pretty blush, and huge '80s sunglasses she styled M.I.A. up in for a performance last month, is defined by its classic prettiness but with a strong element that makes it pop. For some expert post-Fashion Week analysis, I spoke with Black, who runs the Face section of LA's Warren-Tricomi salon and does some beauty writing of her own, about how the looks we saw on the ramps are going to translate into magazines (also known as editorial) and eventually onto the drugstore shelves. We covered a lot of ground, and she has some amazing tips for turning runway makeup into real-way looks. To find out how anyone can wear black lipstick and other juicy tidbits, just keep reading
More recently, she's been seen on Nip/Tuck and has made the transition from sexy screen siren to seasoned actress very successfully, as evidenced by the following statement she once made: "Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades." To get Jacqueline's old-school look, which translates quite nicely into today's makeup palettes, it's all about the dark liner and mascara, along with a tawny blush like Benefit Dallas ($28) and a subtle, nonfussy sheer lipstick like Bare Escentuals Quick-Stick in Escentual Fig ($14). Check out my gallery below for further inspiration.

Yesterday, I snuck in a packet of delicious milk chocolate raisins after my healthy salad lunch, and afterward, I was awash in sugary sweet happiness (and guilt). But my candy got me thinking about the smell of chocolate which, inevitably, made me think of fragrance. And I realized what a delicious note chocolate is. It's present in lots of the girliest florals, sweet or spicy gourmands, but also in several richer, more mature fragrances. Your favorite fragrance may have a chocolate note that you don't even know about. I've assembled some of the most popular fragrances with chocolate notes—is your signature scent one of them?
