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 … Continue reading Burberry Beauty: Trend Talk with InStyle Style Ambassador Tai Beauchamp

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 … Continue reading The Face of Fall: Velveteen Dream

I have used Peau Vierge Anti-Aging Complexe Tinted Treatment for almost two years now. It’s always on my face, even for a quick run at the gym.
