The best products to use on eyes for fall

According to BYL Makeup Artists

This season’s Fall eye makeup is all about being creative and free. The trends are smokey, imperfect and painterly eyes. Think: Less structure and more “creative girl chic.” In the Summer, we tend to wear less makeup and as Fall approaches, we look forward to playing up our look and experimenting with new styles again. Here are some of our favorite products for achieving these looks!

Evy Drew, Makeup Artist

Celebrity Clients: Mary-Louise Parker, Ana Gasteyer

L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Black Mascara is the BEST! It’s a long-wear product that doesn’t clump. I love to layer it with a few swipes from Kiss Ever EZ Lashes Trio Lash Set.z2263209

Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil is truly waterproof and comes in (12) gorgeous shades. I love using Maybelline Super Stay24 Color Lip Color as a base for long day shoots. It does not budge. And I love to put a pop of gloss on top, so that my client’s lips don’t feel or look too dry!

Ames Amore, Makeup Artist

Celebrity Clients: David Yurman, Jackie Gordon (The Bachelor).

We want to de-puff, and with the Fall ‘16 trends being so smudgy and cool we want to make sure eye makeup stays that way and doesn’t start looking like we desperately need more sleep!

Le Mieux Eye Firming Sheet masks as well as their Face Sheet masks. Packed with hyaluronic acid..these babies deliver some major hydration.

Embryolisse Secret Artist Stick for instant de-puffing, under eye brightening and waking up the entire eye area. For a DIY try mixing essential rose oil drops with coconut water into a spray bottle as a hydrating facial refresher. Your skin will thank you and it smells amazing!!

Try the MakeUp Forever Aqua Creams. They have a beautiful variety of colors, creamy blendable texture and waterproof staying power! For years I’ve been a fan of MAC Powerpoint eye pencil in Engraved. It’s safe for the waterline, is intensely black and glides on smoothly.

I love Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller. One of my favorite things to do first thing when I wake up is to swipe this super affordable and effective eye roller all over my puffy, sleepy under eyes. It’s the only thing that makes me feel truly awake, and I keep mine in the fridge. For an added bonus – putting something cold under your eyes immediately depuffs any bags and the caffeine+mint ingredients in this roller ensure they stay de-puffed for the rest of the morning.
