Fifi Mahony's (934 Royal St., 504-525-4343; www.fifimahonys.com) makeup artist Lex Cie says fall is a time when people want to update their looks. A swipe of lipstick in a bold new hue is a quick, affordable way to accomplish this. "Browns are making a comeback, as well as purples," Cie says. "Deep purples, black and dark lipsticks look sophisticated." Wear these shades in a matte formulation to avoid looking costume-y, Cie says. And if you're hesitant to break out the black lipstick, just remember this benefit: "It makes your teeth look whiter," she says.
