We wanted to know what we need to know for fall to be in step with makeup trends so we turned to Mirabella Creative Director Amber Bowen for these expert recommendations:

UNDONE ELEGANCE: "Fall is all about subtle sophistication. To get the undone elegant look, start with a base of natural-looking yet polished skin. I recommend using a CC cream to get the benefits of a moisturizer, sunscreen and foundation all-in-one. Mirabella's new CC Creme glides on comfortably and yields flawless skin in seconds."

PROLONG THE GLOW: "Bronzers add depth to skin and help prolong the summer glow while transitioning to fall. Sculpt the face by applying a warm hue with pink or gold undertones on cheekbones and forehead, then down the bridge of the nose and middle of the chin. I recommend Mirabella Bronzed in Baked Sand for a universally flattering shade."

MASCARA RULES: "Eyes this season are all about the lashes. I have three rules when it comes to mascara. First, it should adhere to your lashes with some tension to achieve a great arc. Second, it should dry quickly to avoid butterfly marks. And most importantly, it should stay tacky throughout the day and not dry too hard. If a mascara dries completely, it will flake before the day is over. Complement your long, lush, bold lashes with eyeshadow in soft smoky brown."

LIP TRICK: "For lips, try a berry tone. Lips should look smudged with color. Pick a shade like Mirabella Colour Vinyl lipstick in Scarlet Sparkle and apply with fingers for a more stained look."
