Chanel seemed like the kind of Snob who made her own luck in life, but when it came down to it, she was superstitious. The icon kept tons of good luck charms around her, and I have a feeling these products will be ours this fall. After all, looking good makes you feel good, and when you feel good, you do well, right?
In honor of last Friday’s official start to summer, I’m rounding up some of the best cream eyeshadows for the season of water sports, ridiculously humid afternoons, and general madness. Summer is about having fun and relaxing – you want to be able to take a dip in the pool without having to reapply your entire face…
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 … Continue reading Emily Blunt’s Neon Eye: Snob or Slob?

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 … Continue reading MAC Hayley Williams: Red-Orange Riot
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 … Continue reading Get the Look: Two-Toned Eye Shadow
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 … Continue reading Aerin Limited-Edition Garden Color collection
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 … Continue reading Frugal Snob: Colorful Eyeshadow Custom Palette Case and Shadows
