We try to avoid playing favorites with our beauty products. There are so many new tech-savvy tools, colorful polishes, and revolutionary skincare serums coming out all the time that you want to try everything, and lucky for me, that’s my job! At the end of the day, though, there are just some must-haves that can’t be beat.
I have to admit: I hadn’t had this much eyeliner on since high school. But unlike back in high school, this smoked-out eye looks so natural and beautiful, not harsh. Throw out any preconceived notions you might have that lining your entire eye will close it up and make your peepers appear smaller. Actually, when lined and smudged properly, eyes not only look bigger, they have substantially more depth. And let’s not even get into the glow on my skin!
It’s time for the holidays and I’m feeling particularly inspired by Lupita Nyong’o’s eye look. It’s easy to go cheesy come the end of the year with green and red overload; going with a deep lip and a soft metallic eye is the perfect way to circumvent that while still rocking a festive look.
This new eye serum from Natura Bissé blows everything other brand’s out of the water. Summer is rough on skin, especially when you’re outside all of the time with your tots (amusement parks, beaches, pools…it’s unavoidable). I was horrified to discover new lines around my eyes, to the point that I was ready to try something extreme.
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!).
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.
Giorgio Armani launched his new limited edition beauty collection, Fade to Grey, on the Fall 2014 runwayicon. The products were all tested out backstage and while Armani has had a successful cosmetics line for awhile it was only recently that I started using his products. I was lured in by the gorgeous packaging.
