Bobbi Brown Pink Peony Bronzing Powder

Spring has sprung, and it’s time for a sun-kissed flush to match. This is the first bronzer I’ve ever had that’s neither orange nor brown (Bobbi Brown does make a blush entitled “Peony,” so don’t get confused). Shocking hot pink – truly the lovely color of something that grows in the jungle – in the […]

Josie Maranargan Illuminizer: Sun Kissed Without The Worry

Let me start by saying, I am pale. When I don’t use my self tanner I am ghostly. I don’t tan in beds and haven’t had a spray tan in a while because the smell makes me sick, so when my birthday rolled around this year I needed something to make me look less… dead. […]

Natura Bisse’s The Cure Sheer Eye is God’s gift to women of all ages. While so many eye creams claim major results and produce nothing, this concealer, which pulls double duty as a firming and moisturizing cream, instantly gives the skin around your eyes a delicate luminosity. Ultra-sheer and not cakey or dry (the right […]

Frugal Snob: essence Winter Collection

There’s frugal and then there’s FRUGAL and essence is frugal with everything from “f” to “l” in bold capital letters! I’m talking cheaper than Revlon, Rimmel London, L’Oreal, and pretty much every other drug store buy you can think of. How does that translate when it comes to quality? Don’t expect smoother than smooth eye […]

Legendary hair guru, John Barrett, gave me the scoop on hair styles to expect for Dennis Basso’s fashion show next Tuesday!

Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel: Snooki(s) need not apply

Some people look good pale; Bella Swan, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Hathaway, vampires, etc. Emma, however, does not. I try to pull off the “winter glow” with blushes and rosy lips, but in photos I end up looking sick with too much makeup on. I think it may be because of my yellow undertones, or the […]

The Australian brand is still relatively new and is best known now for their 3-in-1 beauty products – their Body Double moisturizer ($39 – awesome because it has SPF […]

Dianna Agron: Autumn Nudes

Do not let the cooler months keep you from sun kissed and gorgeous looking skin! I’m obsessed with Glee and though I’m not a fan of Quinn (I mean Dianna) on the show, I have to admit she’s one freakishly gorgeous girl. Does she not look like a Anime character with those huge eyes, perfect […]
