Chantecaille Glacier Palette: A Frozen Finish

Not a single day passes when I’m not wearing Chantecaille on my face, whether it’s the rich, rose oilicon (on NET-A-PORTER for $185) or my favorite lip gloss in aptly-named “Pretty”icon (on NET-A-PORTER for $33). The quality is just unsurpassable…

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

It’s rare to find an eyeshadow palette to write home about. Leave it to Hourglass to dazzle with something unique (beyond the expected high quality). They just launched seven palettes called Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes.

Trend Alert: Shimmer, Sparkle, and Shine!

Sparkly eye shadow is as essential to holiday beauty as red and green are to the season as a whole. We expect to see it each year. That said, this year’s silvers, golds, and other shimmers are more metallic than ever…

Top 5 Charlotte Tilbury Faves: Getting Tilburized

Right at the top of my Beauty Bucket List is having Charlotte Tilbury do my makeup. This weekend, I came one step closer when her right hand, Nelson Catarino, worked his special Tilbury magic and gave me her signature Rocker Chick face.

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.

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.

Best Spring Pastels: A Glimmer of Shimmer

Remember those pastel – or I should say, pasty – lipsticks we wore in the ninth grade? We all looked like defective Barbies with our frosty blue eye shadow and pale pink lips. Fortunately, the science behind our makeup has only improved since then, as have the trends! Today’s pastels involve just a glimmer of shimmer, rather than a chalky, unflattering consistency.
