If you save the majority of your beauty budget for fancy skin care--and in particular, eye creams--get ready to blow it now because there are some phenomenal new offerings out for fall. Eye care is getting pretty specialized, as evidenced by new formulas and some pretty unique applicators. Just make sure your credit card balance can handle it.
La Prairie, purveyor of very covetable skin care, also has a color makeup line, which not a lot of people realize. As you would expect from the luxury brand, the color line is upscale and posh. You won't see yellow eye shadow here. To help raise awareness of the brand’s makeup collection, La Prairie partnered with makeup artist and founder of Cheek to Chic, Raychel Wade. Raychel created her first (of hopefully many--a holiday collection is already in the works) collection for the brand, called Bouquet de Jardin, which was inspired by peonies. The collection is saturated and gorgeous, yet is formulated to work on a lot of skin tones. It includes two cream blushes which contain vitamins and chamomile, a hybrid kohl eye pencil in a perfect shade of bronze, a rosy quartz eye shadow quad, and a pink lip definer. Raychel sat down with us to share some helpful tips for how to manage your makeup bag and what tricks to use for summer makeup application:

From October 14 through the 24th they are hosting a massive beauty event and we’re all invited. First of all, if you love free samples and tote bags, it is a goody bag paradise. Or rather, a “gift with purchase” paradise. Yeah, you have to buy. But isn’t it worth spending $100 to get a cheap pouch full of tiny samples? (Apparently I think so, because I have ten years' worth of these cluttering up my bathroom vanity.) Here are some of the best: Space NK: It’s kind of major that Space NK is selling in Bloomindgale’s now. For years their hard-to-find brands were only available in the UK, until a flagship opened here in NYC. Let’s hope this Bloomie’s collaboration leads to more free-standing Space NK stores.
