Equitance Brightening Collection: Pearly Perfection

I started using the Equitance Brightening Collection six months ago, hoping to bolster my daily routine with some much-needed nourishment. Most Asian women care more about flawless skin than makeup (if you don’t have dark spots or discoloration, what’s there to cover up?), and this Japanese line gives you that naturally beautiful look.

Right at the top of my Beauty Bucket List is having Charlotte Tilbury do my makeup. This weekend, I came one step closer when her right hand, Nelson Catarino, worked his special Tilbury magic and gave me her signature Rocker Chick face.

Beards are having a huge moment right now (I can’t even count the number of articles like this one I’ve read in the last few weeks and a friend of mine, Spencer Chalk-Levy, has even come out with a book, based off his artwork, called Boys With Beards!).

StriVectin SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate: The Wrinkle Eraser

I started using Strivectin over 10 years ago, just after I’d turned 30 and gotten married. I’d always been a beauty addict, but with so many big life changes, I felt like being even more proactive when it came to anti-aging.

L'Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

L’Occitane Fall 2014 Collections

If I had to pick one brand to use exclusively for the rest of my life it might very well be L’Occitane.
