Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Should You Get Botox to Prevent Wrinkles?

Frown lines, forehead furrows, and lines around the eyes are due to the repetitive folding of the skin from facial expressions. The more you move the muscles, the more quickly lines and wrinkles will form.

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.

Now’s The Time To Get A Facial

I got the Lierac Magnificence Age Defense Facial at PHYTO Universe ($200 for 55 minutes) yesterday and I feel like a new person! So many layers of exfoliating, firming, and hydrating serums and creams were applied that I left the spa with bare skin that was actually beaming (seriously…my skin was glowing…).

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!).

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.

Dolce & Gabbana Skincare Collection

Dolce & Gabbana has gotten into the skincare game going off of their successful foray into makeup and the results are fantastic. It all starts with the completely on-brand packaging – a mix of gold and white that’s at once luxe and sophisticated while being completely eye-catching (remember their leopard compact?!).

Milan Fashion Week Spring 2015 Trend Alert: Neutral Lip

The natural trend that started in New York and continued in London was also prevalent in Milan, but it was mainly focused on the lips. A number of designers went with elaborate eye and/or hair looks, but kept the lips matte and neutral. Here’s a look at some of the standouts!

Origins: Anti-Aging Power Serum

Anti-aging is an eternal quest but if you find the right products that can halt the dreaded trauma in your life, it is a true miracle. I started preventing aging before I actually started aging. I am that obsessed. But once I turned 40, you can only imagine how that ramped up to a fever pitch.
