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.

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.

Frugal Snob: Simply Vera Vera Wang Cosmetic Collection

There are very few designers that have branched out as much as Vera Wang has across the price spectrum — even fewer that have done so successfully. As much as I love her high-end line (even her black wedding dress moment!), I can’t deny that Wang’s David’s Bridal line is killer – so killer in […]

Music Festival-Inspired Beauty: Crazy for Coachella

The biggest music festival of the year is currently in full swing (last weekend marked the first half of the shows), so in honor of all the fun and festivities, I’ve narrowed down my picks for making it through a warm, wild weekend. Even if you’re not lounging and shimmying in the grass over in […]

Three Custom Color: Re-Create Your Fave Discontinued Shades

We’ve all had an eye shadow, lip gloss, blush, or foundation that we’ve absolutely loved suddenly go off the market and there’s nothing more frustrating than feverishly trying to color match at Sephora.

Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

If you’ve read anything I’ve written in the past about Hourglass you might know that it’s one of my favorite brands. They’re top notch when it comes to quality (everything goes on super smooth and lasts forever without feeling heavy), and aside from great color products they’ve also got awesome tools and I’m OBSESSED with […]
