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!

Memebox: The Korean Birchbox

I never really got into the box trend or the Beach Mint, Shoe Mint, etc trend, but Memebox has changed my mind – and there is no monthly commitment…just adorable Korean products in a box!

I started using Strivectin over 10 years ago, just after I’d turned 30 and gotten married. I’d always been a beauty addict, but with so many big life changes, I felt like being even more proactive when it came to anti-aging.

L’Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

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.

I got the Lierac Magnificence Age Defense Facial at PHYTO Universe ($200 for 55 minutes) yesterday and I feel like a new person!
