Emily Blunt’s Neon Eye: Snob or Slob?

I think Emily Blunt looked fantastic at this year’s Met Gala. In fact her look has stuck with me even weeks later because while it’s a bit out there, I think her take on punk could work even for a non-punk themed evening out. The key is pairing this bold eye makeup look with an […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Part One

It’s just 10 short days until Mother’s Day! It can seem daunting to buy gifts for the woman who’s always giving to you. When in doubt, go with beauty products – unlike clothes (which can be hit or miss even with your closest friends), you won’t have to fret about getting the right size. I […]

Summer Beauty Looks: From Runway to Real Life

The Fall 2013 shows brought us countless beauty looks to try (some crazier than others!), but the ones that caught my eye were at Bottega Veneta and Jil Sander. Both runways were dominated by prominent brows, flush nude lips, and soft eyes. This focus on easy beauty is just what you want in the summer. […]

MAC Hayley Williams: Red-Orange Riot

Hayley Williams may be known as the lead singer of Paramore, but she’s also known for her unapologetically bright hair. The heady orange tint demands so much attention that MAC has been inspired to create a four-piece line in honor of Hayley’s signature hue – a pretty impressive feat for a 24-year old! Considering I’m […]

Get the Look: Two-Toned Eye Shadow

I am dying over the looks featured in Tom Ford’s latest ad campaigns! Interestingly while one is for lipstick and the other one is for a fragrance, it’s the eyes I’m captivated by on both. Both models have gorgeous lashes – little surprise because Ford’s mascara is out of this world (so much so in […]

Aerin Limited-Edition Garden Color collection

  Aerin Lauder is well on her way to building a namesake empire of her own with a full-fledged line of home and beauty products (shoes are launching shortly). I was recently sent some items from her new limited edition Garden Color Collection and I immediately saw the Estee Lauder influence. Quality-wise the two brands […]

Frugal Snob: Colorful Eyeshadow Custom Palette Case and Shadows

If you’re on a budget that’s tight, but not super tight, there is no better beauty brand than Sephora’s namesake one. I’ve tried a ton of their products – from cleansers and anti-aging creams, to makeup (their mascara and eye liner are amazing) – and all of them have surpassed my expectations. The prices are […]

DeVita Natural Skin Care: Lipstick Without the Ick

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions. I figure if you want to do something…don’t wait…change it now! That said I couldn’t help but make a few. In 2013 I want to start running outdoors, I want to make it to a 9pm Barry’s Bootcamp class (I’m just curious to see the kind of crowd […]

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tints: Crayon Craze

I’ve always been able to keep my morning routine to a cool 3 minutes thanks to shadow sticks. My grandmother used to let me play with hers in the ‘70s when they were slick like oil pastels and would smudge (I used them on my Barbies!). And this is why shadow sticks are popular – […]
