Trend Talk: Burberry Beauty Giveaway!

I had so much fun tweeting and co-hosting the Burberry Trend Talk event with InStyle Magazine! The ultimate highlight was meeting the InStyle Style Ambassador Tai Beauchamp. Not only is she gorgeous (and TALL!), but she was so much fun to dish beauty with. And I loved meeting all of the Beauty Snobs who attended […]

Tarte Holiday 2012 Collection: Ready, Sets, Go

A limited-edition makeup set is the ideal gift for any beauty snob (yourself included), not to mention the easiest. The holidays may seem far off today, but they approach with lightning speed; honestly, I feel like they come faster every year. Tarte’s giving us a jump on the shopping, and an opportunity to skip the […]

Chanel Spring/Summer 2013 Show: From Lagerfeld’s Floor to the Grand Palais

When offering up inspiration to Peter Philips, the Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, for the Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-To-Wear Show, Karl Lagerfeld said only one word: shine. With that, Philips created a fresh-faced look for his models, whose eyes and lips were boldly brought out with shimmering color and texture. “The inspiration was actually the floor […]

Beauty Addicts’ Show-Off Mascara: Quick and Dirty

I thought I’d found the perfect mascara when I first applied Beauty Addicts‘ ShowOff. It thickened, it lengthened, it darkened. It even has Argan Oil for conditioning. It pretty much did everything except my laundry. Each day, I would apply several layers before leaving the house; the stuff never clumped and I could re-apply several […]

Heat and Perspiration-Resistant Makeup: Rae Cosmetics

Do you wear makeup to the gym? I certainly don’t. I’m acne-prone as is and tend to favor intense workouts so the last thing I need it to clog my pores because of gym-time vanity. That said I can’t help but be intrigued by Rae Cosmetics, a brand that makes makeup specifically for the gym! […]

theBalm Cosmetics

I’m a sucker for awesome packaging – whether it be something super luxe like Tom Ford or Cle de Peau or something fun and cheeky like Soap & Glory or Rodial. Recently I came across one that falls in the latter category and I’ve become obsessed. The brand is called theBalm and their products are […]

The limited-edition collection of Electric Cool eye shadows blend high-intensity pigments with frosty shimmer (available from July 26th-September 13th at MAC). These 12 shades […]

Mally Beauty Mega Bridal Kit

One of my first published clips was, interestingly enough, a story on Hampton weddings for a local Hamptons newspaper. I was an 18 year old Freshman at Cornell when I wrote the story and needless to say, never married. Fast forward a few years and I’m still not that much closer to knowing much about […]

Best of Haute Couture Beauty: Chanel Sweetens the Deal

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that my award for best in haute couture show goes to Chanel’s sweet yet strong faces. Their Creative Director, Peter Philips, rarely disappoints, and for the vintage-inspired collection, glimmering with sparkly tights, metallic silver-woven tweeds, and dégradé sequins, he delivered beauty to match the grounded-meets-ethereal feel. While […]
