I have an elaborate 13-step beauty routine, and while I consider all 13 of those products as personal essentials, a few stuck out from the pack as the top five of the year. So without further ado, here are the best beauty products of 2013 – the ones that I just couldn’t live without. What were yours?
The holidays are all about nostalgia, so to celebrate the season, Bobbi Brown is bringing us back – to Old Hollywood! American screens icons inspired the collection, featuring jet black ink liner ($27), va-va-voom lip color ($28), and glittery polishes ($18). And that’s not all Bobbi gotten you for the Holidays – she’s also released the Gift Giving collection.
Sure you can buy L’Oreal products on pretty much every street corner in New York City, but now through December 30th, you can also buy them underground. That’s right…you can buy your eye shadow and foundation when you’re on the go now that L’Oreal has unveiled the first ever “intelligent vending experience” in the Bryant Park subway station.
I’ve been watching Michelle Phan’s YouTube videos since she started out in Florida, and from Barbie tutorials to everyday tips, I’m obsessed. It’s incredible to see where she’s taken her career. The beauty maven’s latest move? A full cosmetics line – em michelle phan.
I love this look. It’s so wearable yet artistic, especially when paired with a nude lip as it was at Missoni’s show this season. At the show, eyes were rimmed in MAC’s Blacktrack Fluidline ($15), and the brand’s Silver Glitter eyeliner was applied with the finger over the lid and brow bone.
Two of my favorite ladies have come together for one great capsule collection! What’s not to love? Even though Bobbi Brown’s company has been in business for more than 20 years, Katie Holmes is the first celebrity to act as its face. This makes sense – quality products like Bobbi’s need no endorsement. The collaboration with Katie came about organically.
Just looking at the picture above has me jumping in my skin with excitement. Tom Fordicon reminds me of why I love makeup so much. He knows that it’s about more than just color. The texture and packaging have to be as immaculate, and he has managed to far and away always exceed expectations – and I’d venture to guess that anyone who thinks that sounds over-the-top hasn’t been to a Tom Ford Beauty counter!
It has been a few weeks since I went to the launch event for the Fall 2013 Clé de Peau collection and I’ve been dying to share everything I learned! The stunning rose-inspired collection was showcased in a Chelsea flower shop to hit the message of the market fresh, floral inspiration home.
