Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

It’s rare to find an eyeshadow palette to write home about. Leave it to Hourglass to dazzle with something unique (beyond the expected high quality). They just launched seven palettes called Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes.

Caring for Lashes

Caring for Lashes: Thick It Up a Notch

I’ve had a lash obsession my entire life. It seems like a small thing, but I once read that beauty pageant judges claim the number one physical attribute they all look for is a set of full lashes.

Snob Team Beauty Favorites: Make New Friends, But Keep the Old

We try to avoid playing favorites with our beauty products. There are so many new tech-savvy tools, colorful polishes, and revolutionary skincare serums coming out all the time that you want to try everything, and lucky for me, that’s my job! At the end of the day, though, there are just some must-haves that can’t be beat.

Trend Alert: Shimmer, Sparkle, and Shine!

Sparkly eye shadow is as essential to holiday beauty as red and green are to the season as a whole. We expect to see it each year. That said, this year’s silvers, golds, and other shimmers are more metallic than ever…

Top 5 Charlotte Tilbury Faves: Getting Tilburized

Right at the top of my Beauty Bucket List is having Charlotte Tilbury do my makeup. This weekend, I came one step closer when her right hand, Nelson Catarino, worked his special Tilbury magic and gave me her signature Rocker Chick face.

Lupita Nyong’o Sparkles in Gold

It’s time for the holidays and I’m feeling particularly inspired by Lupita Nyong’o’s eye look. It’s easy to go cheesy come the end of the year with green and red overload; going with a deep lip and a soft metallic eye is the perfect way to circumvent that while still rocking a festive look.

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum

Natura Bissé Diamond Life Infusion Retinol Eye Serum: Passing the Eye Test

This new eye serum from Natura Bissé blows everything other brand’s out of the water. Summer is rough on skin, especially when you’re outside all of the time with your tots (amusement parks, beaches, pools…it’s unavoidable). I was horrified to discover new lines around my eyes, to the point that I was ready to try something extreme.

In Depth Into Chantecaille at Their NYC Headquarters

I stopped by Chantecaille’s glossy Soho headquarters a few days ago to meet with Kristen Ott, who handles the brand’s public relations and Eddie Hernandez who is the brand’s in-house makeup pro (that’s his tattoo and arm above!).

Tarte Ladies Who Lash Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

Instinctively many of us are wary of eyelash curlers, but don’t fret…they won’t make you lose lashes! Make sure however to curl before applying mascara. I’ve used heated ones in the past but something about having heat – even though it’s not enough to damage the lashes – makes me uneasy.
