Our editor Candice is one of the first people we turn to for insight into the newest and best products we just have to get our hands on. A tech nerd at heart who also happens to look stunning in red lipstick, she’s equally game for discussions about comic books and the art of blending a gradient eye shadow look. In our latest video, Candice shares her picks for a fabulous fall—watch the video for her seasonal-must-haves, then check out highlights from her beauty profile and list of favorites below:

- My level of beauty knowledge: dedicated enthusiast. I love learning and exploring.
- I can never have too many: haircare, makeup, and skincare products.
- My beauty style is: Some days adventurous, some days low maintenance
- I am most concerned about: Acne, aging, hyperpigmentation or dark spots, puffiness/dark circles around eyes
Beauty confession: I will try anything once, and occasionally I love wearing bold looks, but if I’m given a choice my go-to look is usually a little eyeliner, a little tinted lip balm, and a ponytail. Very low key.
Song on repeat right now: Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse”
Favorite lip color: LAQA & Co’s Pinkman
First job: Fact-checker at a travel magazine!
Favorite YouTube video: This Google Chrome ad. It makes me tear up every time.
Who would you trade places with for a day: Marissa Mayer. I’d love to know what it’s like to reshape a huge company like Yahoo!
Morning or night person: Night person, despite my best efforts to convert. I do my best thinking (and writing) right around (or after) midnight.
