Tom Ford Beauty Summer 2013 Collection: The Bronze Age

Tom Ford has obviously found and bathed in the fountain of youth, so he knows that looking bronzed should be a matter of makeup, not deadly rays. His Summer 2013 limited edition line is honestly the best bronzing collection I’ve ever tried, and as a former sun worshipper/tanning salon addicted LA girl, I know my […]

Get the Look: Elle Macpherson’s Nude Lip

Nothing goes better with a bold smoky eye than a nude lip, but what people tend to forget is that it’s a versatile look that would work just as well with a more neutral eye, as Elle Macpherson demonstrates in the image above. The key is to make sure your lips don’t disappear. For that […]

Summer Beauty Looks: From Runway to Real Life

The Fall 2013 shows brought us countless beauty looks to try (some crazier than others!), but the ones that caught my eye were at Bottega Veneta and Jil Sander. Both runways were dominated by prominent brows, flush nude lips, and soft eyes. This focus on easy beauty is just what you want in the summer. […]

Estee Lauder Pure Color Pretty Naughty Collection

It’s kind of funny to me that Estee Lauder’s Spring 2013 collection is called Pretty Naughty because Lauder is one of the last brands I think of when it comes to naughty – hence the double entendre with “pretty” I presume. The brand’s take on naughty is just up my alley because it balances soft […]

Laura Mercier Arabesque Collection: Ballet Beauty

After the harsh neon hues of late, this is a welcome change! A new year calls for a fresh start, and Laura Mercier’s limited edition Arabesque Collection is just that. The products are light and airy, just the way I like my makeup, and will flatter your face as it is, rather than try to […]

Best Beauty of 2012: And the Award Goes to…

Beauty products are like tech products – they just get better and more effective every year. I mean did you know that CC cream is already a thing? I feel like BB just made her first appearance! Some beauty buys can be trendy (dark ‘90s lip liner hasn’t aged so well), but these top choices […]

By Terry Or de Rose Baume Precieux: Rose Gold

By Terry already has hands down the best lipgloss, so if you’re an addict (at least I can admit it!), then you’ll want to step up your game with her Or de Rose – a gloss made with real 24 carat pink gold specks! Yes, this might sound like decadence for decadence’s sake, but it’s […]

Teen Gift Guide: Teenage Dreams

I love holiday shopping for the teens in my family! When you’re young and beginning to experiment with beauty, it’s the most fun. Bright colors and high shine glosses are king. Teens aren’t as concerned yet with preventative beauty like moisturizers or eye creams, and although it’s great to encourage that foresight, what they’ll thank […]

Dolce & Gabbana Animalier

I nearly toppled over with excitement when I received a delivery with the above cougar-licious box of Dolce & Gabbana beauty goodies. The leopard print is an instant mood booster and the colors in the new makeup collection are in line with my current penchant for neutrals. The Eyeshadow Quad in Desert ($67) is my […]
