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 […]

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 […]

Estee Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty Collection

It’s kind of funny to me that Estee Lauder’s Spring 2013 collection is called Pretty Naughty because Lauder is one of the last brands I think of when it comes to naughty – hence the double entendre with “pretty” I presume. The brand’s take on naughty is just up my alley because it balances soft […]

Laura Mercier Arabesque Collection: Ballet Beauty

After the harsh neon hues of late, this is a welcome change! A new year calls for a fresh start, and Laura Mercier’s limited edition Arabesque Collection is just that. The products are light and airy, just the way I like my makeup, and will flatter your face as it is, rather than try to […]

Anne Hathaway x Chanel: Flawlessly Fantine-tastic

Anne Hathaway may have lost 25 pounds to play dying prostitute Fantine in Les Misérables, but on the film’s red carpet she was fresh faced and gorgeous! Even her short-cropped hair has a perfect healthy shine. Yes, she’s a bit smug, but she has every right to be, even though it’s highly irritating at times. […]

Bobbi Brown: Holiday Spice and Everything Nice

‘Scuse the smudge marks on my Bobbi Brown products! I get so excited when the mailman brings me new goodies that I rip them open immediately to play (even if it’s 10 p.m. and time for bed). Seriously, it’s like Christmas morning! I have to say this is by far one of my favorite BB […]

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 Lumieres de Artifices and Blush Les Tissages: Glow Snob

There are a few things I can not live without this season, two of them being CHANEL compacts- the Lumieres de artifices & the Blush Les Tissages. I do not tan my face, ever. I’ll let my stomach, legs, and arms roast but the face/neck/chest? Under wraps, hats, or SPF 65+. This makes for a very unattractive […]
