    Professional makeup artist Aisha Alves shares her tips for Fall skin care advice and makeup tips.

    Aisha Alves: I am going to show you how to update your makeup for the fall season. Now that we are coming out of summer, your tan is starting to fade, temperatures are dropping as well as humidity levels, you want to switch to a new cleanser that has an exfoliator in it that will help slump off any dead skin and keep your skin looking radiant. After that, you want to make sure that you are using a richer moisturizer so it will give you lasting moisture on the skin. The next step is to think about coverage and foundation. Now as we are going into fall, you are going to want a richer and more polished look. One of my favorite items right now is spray foundation. When you use your spray foundation, shake it up. I am going to spray it on to my hand first and then apply it from there. I am going to go ahead and use the sponge and start applying. One of the things that I love about spray foundation is that it really gives you a nice, clean and even coverage, but it feels totally weightless on the skin. Use downward strokes and just like a light feathery motion to make sure that everything gets blended. The next step in getting your skin ready for fall is to look at color on the cheek. I am going to use a nice rich plum for Ana and that's going right on the apple of her cheek and then very, very slightly brushing out. And see how I am pulling it underneath her cheek bone; it's going to give you a little bit more of that contoured look. So that's how we transition our skin into fall.
