Forget every other polish brand and head straight to Sephora to pick up a Formula X polish. Or while you’re at it, might as well get their The Twenty-Two Set, which gives you a whopping 22 polishes for $55 – a $103 value.
Milan Fashion Week Fall 2014 has officially wrapped, and while most designers opted for natural looks both for hair and makeup, there were still plenty of out-of-the-box and inspiring styles. Here’s a peek at the four beauty looks we can’t get out of our heads!
I always stock up on Bobbi Brown essentials during the annual Family & Friends event. 20% off? Yes, please! Not only does Bobbi give us a discount (and free shipping if you spend $65), but she also donates $10,000 to Dress for Success. And this isn’t contingent upon us spending a certain amount of money. It’s just a straight donation whether or not we buy anything at all. Of course we will, though!
I’m a natural blonde, but that blonde hair has been getting darker as I age…no biggie! Nothing a hair pro at Oscar Blandi can’t fix. My eyebrows however are a lot darker, so on a few occasions I’ve had them lightened to better match my hair.
Legend has it that Cleopatra bathed in milk and honey…if it was good enough for Cleopatra, reason dictates that there must be some fantastic beauty benefits to honey. Honey, in fact, is a natural humectant meaning it draws water to the skin so it’s awesome this time of year when skin tends to be dry.
Who isn’t a sucker for a good value? Usually the best value sets pop up around Christmas, but LORAC has just launched a few new ones including Close Up: Real Life to Red Carpet Eye Tutorial – a $111 value that retails for just $39.
I am creature of habit when it comes to fragrance. Partly because I want people to know who’s there when I creep up behind them (no, but really), and partly so that my boy will think of me when he smells my perfume. Florals are my favorite – especially white flowers like gardenia – which is why the new Cartier La Panthere eau de parfum seems made for me.
Ole Henriksen Roll On Acne Clearing Solution ($20) has become my secret weapon for a post-gym face cleanse. It’s super easy to use since it’s a rollerball (i.e. very sanitary – key after the gym), and it doesn’t smell or dry out my skin. It says to apply it before using a moisturizer, but I actually cleanse, apply moisturizer, and then use this as a spot treatment and never leave having a feeling of dryness.
NYFW has finally drawn to a close. Eight days of incredible collections, but also incredibly horrible weather! To survive the brutally low temps and high winds, I had to keep my skin in tip-top shape, and that included my lips. I am somewhat of a lip balm aficionado, having used everything from nipple cream and cow udder balm (seriously) to fancy, flavored, department store versions.
