Tom Ford Fall 2015 Collection

Tom Ford Fall 2015 Beauty Collection

Tom Ford has launched a number of new beauty items for fall. The standouts, however, are his primers. I’ve been using his Illuminating Primer since it launched a few years ago and it’s fantastic (tied with Hourglass’, which I also love).

The London Fashion Week Look You Have to See

The London Fashion Week Look You Have to See

It’s hard to believe that there’s a real model under all this makeup…but there is! Gareth Pugh is no stranger to envelope-pushing beauty, but this is particularly stunning. Though there’s little to inspire a real street look (do love that hair, though…), this is awe-inspiring in terms of originality and execution.

Equitance Brightening Collection: I See the Light

I’ve always been taught that a beautiful complexion starts from within. No amount of makeup can truly mask bad skin.

Top 7 Facial Scrubs: Glow Your Own Way

I know that everyone stops you short when you try to say that summer is ending, but sadly, it’s true. And with the conclusion of this beloved season, we also have to say goodbye to those days at the beach that leave you with perfect tans.

Medical Beauty Research BioChange: Open, Treat, Close

I recently discovered the Medical Beauty Research line of products. Though the name doesn’t sound sexy and their marketing campaign is non-existent, their products really work. The German brand was founded by dermatologists and plastic surgeons, which isn’t new, but their approach and ingredients are. The rules for caring for your skin are open, treat, … Continue reading Medical Beauty Research BioChange: Open, Treat, Close

Charlotte Tilbury x Snob Essentials: The Uptown Girl

Tina’s made no secret of loving all things Charlotte Tilbury, from the Magic Cream that started it all to the Goddess Skin clay mask; so when she was asked to participate in the beauty authority’s 10 Women Takeover blog series, I have to imagine there was no hesitation.
