Q: I love braids and wore them often this summer. Can I carry the style into fall without looking out of place?

A: Plaited hair was a fashion staple on fall’s runways, so you can continue to rock this look with confidence. Make a few adjustments from your slightly disheveled, summertime braid and keep your cool weather coif refined. To keep tresses firmly in place, spritz locks with a flexible hold formula such as Philip B Jet Set Precision Control Hair Spray, and don’t forget to add in this season’s most stylish accessory – a deep-set part.

Q: I love the look of neutral nails, but I’m really fair and not sure if they’ll work with my skin tone. Can you recommend an alternative that will complement my skin tone?

A: While the nude nail trend is universally flattering, not everyone is comfortable with the hint-of-color manicure. Fortunately, fall welcomes ultra-elegant garnet toned hues. We like the chip-resistant, stylish red shades designed by Essie Reds Nail Color, which has the perfect color for every complexion.

Q: I love the metallic, smoky eye that’s popular this fall, but I’m not very skilled at applying makeup. Can you recommend foolproof eye shadow formula that will keep me on-trend?

A: Fortunately, you don’t have to be an expert to take advantage of this season’s hottest eye makeup. Cream shadows are simple to apply and go on smoothly with the tip of your finger – no brush required. Reach for one that’s velvety soft and has a stylish, bronzy finish like Butter London Wink Cream Eye Shadow in Randy. Simply swipe it on and you’re ready to go!

Q: I want to brighten up my look for fall, but I don’t want to make a drastic change. Any ideas for subtle yet noticeable ways to switch up my hair?

A: Try the “less is more” effect of highlights. Focus on adding highlights around your face and at the crown of your head to draw attention to your features, rather than going for the dramatic shift of a different hair color. Just make sure to choose golden shades rather than ashy or beige tones, to provide a flattering contrast to paler skin during the cooler weather months.

Q: I love chocolate and pizza. Can sugary or greasy foods cause my skin to break out?

A: There’s no scientific proof that diet increases oil production. However, many medical professionals believe that foods that contain hormones can cause changes in your skin. So if you think the culprit may be too much meat or milk or that candy bar you had for dessert, try eliminating certain foods from your diet for a week or so and see if you notice a change in your acne.
