Get Inspired By Kickstart Beauty's Michal Cohen's Beauty Picks for Fall and Beyond!

Fall is rapidly moving forward yet it seems –at least here in LA– that the weather hasn’t quite cooperated with the season. However that hasn’t stopped anyone from wearing the new fall colors. It was interesting that 3 of us who attended the Governor’s Conference for Women showed up in plum and purple hues — which ties in perfectly to what Tara ( heard in the stylist seminar at the Conference.
However, woman does not live by plum and purple alone — and you can’t wear it 24/7 either. Who better to turn to for great fall beauty picks than’s Michal Cohen for the best of the season that’s wearable by virtually everyone! Also note that while you are starting to look at holiday colors, you can’t wear all the glitz, glimmer, shine and glitter every day. The basic face must be in place and then you add in some shine somewhere and spotlight one feature with shimmer or gleam and then let everything else fall into place- and that’s what this list is–your basics to work from to create that gorgeous look for fall and holiday.
