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 […]

Steal the Look: Stella McCartney Resort 2013 Runway

In fashion, the word “cool” is about as overused as a beloved Céline luggage tote. But, really, you just don’t get much cooler than a Stella girl. Case in point, the dewy, pretty-rebel faces of the ladies who just modeled McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection. Makeup artist Jeanine Lobell amped up the designer’s trademark fresh, undone […]

Hourglass No 28 Primer Serum

You might have heard me gush about Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 at some point in these last few years because it’s hands down one of my favorite products. It goes on baby bum smooth and is the perfect under-layer for liquid foundation (it also doubles as an eye primer). I always thought that […]

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 […]

Steal the Look: Lanvin Fall 2012’s Purr-fect Eyes

Even though it’s not quite over, I can already safely say: my favorite look out of all of Paris Fashion Week was seen at Lanvin. With a porcelain complexion, naturally pretty pink lip, and one seriously exaggerated, dramatic cat eye, this glossy look was as spring-fresh as it was rock ‘n’ roll. During NYFW last […]

Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer Matte Finish: Prime Time Special

I’ve had a totally different experience with the Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer from Tina’s rash nightmare. The formula I use is the Matte Finish – when I have the option, I always prefer matte since my skin glistens with oil on its own. I also have extremely sensitive skin; if I scratch too hard, […]

Caudalie Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid: Primetime Special

Who wants to wear a full face of foundation if they don’t have to? While I will try just about anything for a relatively flawless face (and I’m still obsessed with my By Terry foundation brush), I’m a huge fan of products that remind me that less is more. Caudalie‘s Vinoperfect Day Perfecting Fluid may […]
