Shopping Find: The Detox Market

I’m completely obsessed with The Detox Market. I’m not even sure how exactly I stumbled upon this website, but they’ve got a killer selection of beauty products, including a number of under-the-radar brands. They specialize in non-toxic, natural brands and they have a store in Venice, California…how I missed it when I was on Abbot […]

It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil

It’s rare that a product that claims to be a one-size-fits-all for color actually lives up to that claim, but the It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil ($24) really does have a color that will work for just about anyone. It’s also long-wearing (it lasts all day when I use it), waterproof, and formulated […]

Steal the Look: Emma Stone Goes Light and Luminous

Sometimes it’s best to save the drama for your dress. Just ask Emma Stone, who modeled a fine balance of opulence and ease at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man on June 27th.

Chanel 2012-13 F/W Ready-To-Wear Beauty: All About the Brows

A bold brow is a sign of youth. So what is a bold brow laced with grey sequins; a sign of eternal youth? It looks more like it’s from another planet than a place of eternal youth to me. I enjoyed the models’ looks – pale, matte foundation with neutral lips and lavender/taupe shadow that […]

Kimberly Ovitz Fall 2012: Mega-Brows on Androgynous Babes

A dark, grungy, almost Goth mood reigned at Kimberly Ovitz’s Fall 2012 show – and the faces were somehow even more severe than the unapologetic black clothing, much of it draped like capes over the models as if they were night crusaders.

Barely-There Brows: To Pluck Or Not to Pluck…
