There’s something about a little pre-bedtime pampering that works to alleviate some of the day’s stress, and many of Villafranco’s tips take just a few seconds to put into practice!

Trend Alert: Playing with Matches

Looking for holiday beauty inspo? Here it is, thanks to Jessica Alba, who appears beautifully done-up without looking overly-fussy. The key is that she went semi matchy-matchy by opting to coordinate the hue of her geometric, ruby Bavna drop earrings with a slightly-shimmering berry pout.

Lipstick vs. Lip Gloss: The Ultimate Showdown

I have yet to meet a guy who doesn’t complain about lipstick or gloss at one point or another. I went on the offense with the guy I’m dating now and mentioned this, and – of course – he was all, “you can wear whatever you want…you’re perfect.” Classic thing for a guy to say when you’re in the early stages of your relationship, but the cynical side of me thinks it’s only a matter of time before the tune changes!

The Luxury of Beauty: All About Eve by Eve’s

As much as I love the big box Sephora or Nordstrom experience, there’s a lot to be said for a well-curated boutique where you know that every last item in the store is of the highest caliber. Such is the case with Eve by Eve’s, a gorgeous shop located in the heart of Beverly Hills.

The London Fashion Week Look You Have to See

It’s hard to believe that there’s a real model under all this makeup…but there is! Gareth Pugh is no stranger to envelope-pushing beauty, but this is particularly stunning. Though there’s little to inspire a real street look (do love that hair, though…), this is awe-inspiring in terms of originality and execution.
