Subtle Blushes For Everyday Use

Subtle Blushes For Everyday Use

About 1.5 years ago Estée Lauder came out with this amazing gel blush (felt like powder on the skin – pictured above). It has been my go-to ever since it came out. Unfortunately it was limited edition (why, why, why???) and I haven’t been able to get my hands on it since mine ran out.

Proactiv+ Emergency Blemish Relief

I love Kimberly Snyder. Her blog is one of my go-to reads and she was one of the first health pros to dish the benefits of raw-vegan diets, food combining and other similar health conscious things that today seem almost commonplace. Now she has launched supplements designed to reflect her beauty detox mission.

In Depth Into Chantecaille at Their NYC Headquarters

I stopped by Chantecaille’s glossy Soho headquarters a few days ago to meet with Kristen Ott, who handles the brand’s public relations and Eddie Hernandez who is the brand’s in-house makeup pro (that’s his tattoo and arm above!).

Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

Instinctively many of us are wary of eyelash curlers, but don’t fret…they won’t make you lose lashes! Make sure however to curl before applying mascara. I’ve used heated ones in the past but something about having heat – even though it’s not enough to damage the lashes – makes me uneasy.

Paris Fashion Week Spring 2015 Trend Alert: Makeup as Jewelry

How’s this for an oddball trend? Ear makeup! Just like New York, London, and Milan before it, the makeup looks at Paris Fashion Week have been overwhelmingly minimal this season, but one of the first unexpected trends to emerge is makeup as jewelry.
