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. … Continue reading Anne Hathaway x Chanel: Flawlessly Fantine-tastic

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 … Continue reading Bobbi Brown: Holiday Spice and Everything Nice

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 … Continue reading Chanel Lumieres de Artifices and Blush Les Tissages: Glow Snob

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 … Continue reading theBalm Cosmetics

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.
