As the leaves change colors to autumnal hues, our beauty palettes follow sync. For some this may mean switching to a rich chestnut eyeshadow, an auburn-hued blush, or deep burgundy lips. For utilitarian types like myself, it's all about meeting a new need. I know which eyeshadows and blushes work best for my features and am open to experimenting with different shades of lipstick all year round, but the need to make up for the loss of Summer's sunkissed skin and brighten tired eyes takes center stage. This becomes most evident when I miss even one hour of precious sleep in the colder months. After weeks of searching for the perfect concealer, I finally marched up to the beauty counter one day and asked for the very best in concealer. The answer to my seasonal color dilemma came in a sleek gold tube as if it was the golden ticket to a Fall color boost. Meet Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Éclat ($40).
With an indubitably fitting name (éclat literally means brilliant or dazzling), this concealer covers a multitude of sins and fakes a full night of sleep. Whether I'm running errands on a Saturday morning or putting on a full face of makeup for an evening event, it never fails to give just the right amount of coverage and radiance my skin needs. Using the built-in pump and brush applicator, I swipe it from the inner corner of my eyes and underneath the bottom lashes making sure to cover any dark circles. Then, and most importantly, I use my finger to blend.
