Top 5 Charlotte Tilbury Faves: Getting Tilburized

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!

Lupita Nyong’o Sparkles in Gold

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.

I was horrified to discover new lines around my eyes, to the point that I was ready to try something extreme.

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.

Fall 2014 from Giorgio Armani Beauty

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.
