Ask The Expert: Fall Make Up Trends Smashbox's Robin Flanagan lets us in on some key fall make up trends.

New season, new make up trends. To welcome the cloudier months, Regional Training Manager for Smashbox Cosmetics Robin Flanagan flew in to Manila to introduce the brand's Fall 2010 collection, Masquerade. Inspired by the party culture, the collection is a rich palette of navy, violet, gold and teal hues that Robin explained, can often be seen during masquerade time in Rio de Janeiro. The darker hues may look too daring for the make-up shy but Robin offers a solution, "I always say if you see a scary color, say of eyeshadow, start off with applying a safe color you always use, dip it into the scary and then go back to the safe. This is so you get just a touch of the color without being too concentrated.

But before you go and throw out your spring palettes, remember that there are ways of integrating summer's products into the cloudier months. One particular mainstay? "perfect skin",  "Beautiful skin is in, in all seasons."
