Travel Snob Essentials: Fly Girl

I’m on a plane almost weekly, and there are a few essential products that I always bring with me. On long haul trips to Europe or Asia, I don’t wear any makeup. Why clog your pores when the people around you are probably sleeping anyway? In spite of its deceptively appropriate shape, the aisle in a plane is not a runway…

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. […]

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 […]

Burberry Beauty: Trend Talk with InStyle Style Ambassador Tai Beauchamp

There are a few brands that I consider my mainstays, and Burberry is definitely one of them. I mean, a girl cannot have enough Burberry trench coats (coated canvas, quilted, leather, studded, metallic – I have all of them!), boots, scarves, sharply tailored clothes, or perfectly fitting sunglasses. All are easy, chic pieces that I […]

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 […]

Hydroxatone BB Cream

Few skincare/beauty products are getting as much buzz as BB Creams right now. I haven’t had much experience with them mostly because I’m loyal to my Sensai liquid foundation, but I was sent a sample of Hydroxatone BB Cream ($49.95), so figured I’d give the product a whirl. BB Cream stands for “blemish balm” or […]

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 […]

Steal the Look: Emma Stone Goes Light and Luminous

Sometimes it’s best to save the drama for your dress. Just ask Emma Stone, who modeled a fine balance of opulence and ease at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man on June 27th. Donning a structured and embellished Chanel dress, she wisely kept her face fresh and light. Her makeup artist, Rachel Goodwin, wanted it […]

The Face of Fall: Velveteen Dream

Fall 2012’s most sumptuous and irresistible fabric also proves to be a must for the face. Little is more seductive than a lush, velvety complexion topped with smoldering velvet lips. Whether you go for a deep bordeaux (another major trend come autumn) or a more approachable pink, be sure to keep everything else clean and […]
