So many illuminators, so little time to try them all. At once. I was getting ready to head to a bris, when I decided to opt for a dewy/glowy look to match my flower-print dress instead of my usual au-natural makeup routine. I had so many illuminators to try out, that I just decided to […]

FILLER UP!

I hate to judge others, but truthfully I was once that girl who was anti-dermal fillers and cosmetic surgery for a while. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen so many people that went overboard, or got procedures done that weren’t right for them. The key is to look like yourself but better, not requesting someone else’s […]

ESSIE FALL 2014

Fall, fall, fall! Everyone’s getting ready for fall, which only means there’s a few weeks left of summer (insert sad face). I went into a couple of stores yesterday and displays of gorgeous coats, sweaters, and boots are all over the place!! It’s giving me the itch to start shopping for fall BUT, I know […]

CHANEL BEAUTY: FALL EDITION

I just can’t seem to branch off from Chanel’s beauty line, I’m a devoted fan for life. Who am I kidding, It’s not just their beauty line, it’s all about Chanel everything. They just recently unveiled some goodies for fall 2014 (which you can shop/browse here); it goes without saying that I was absolutely in […]

THE VIOLET FILES

Maybe some of you have already heard about this site, and maybe some of you haven’t, but I’ve been obsessed with Violet Grey since before it even launched. I subscribed to be notified once they were up and running a year ago, because I was intrigued without really knowing what it was about. Talk about […]

BACK TO BASICS

I’m not the most “in the know” person when it comes to makeup products, but I did hear a lot of hoopla over Urban Decay’s NAKED palettes. I had to get my hands on one of these STAT! Apparently there’s a total of 4 of them (Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3, and Naked Basics), and […]

AMERICAN IDOL: IRIS APFEL

Before there were street style bloggers, and even the term: “street style”, there was Iris Apfel. Known for her eclectic style, and those round glasses, she found fame in her mid-80s, when the MET Museum mounted a show in her honor. Embrace your age and natural look with some words of wisdom from a 92-year […]

DR. LIN SKINCARE LUNCHEON

I had the pleasure of attending a luncheon at Nespresso Cafe in Beverly Hills the other day, for the launch of Dr. Lin’s acne skincare line. Dr. Michael Lin, a dermatologist for many years, originally developed the line for his patients who wanted an easy alternative to the 3-step systems out there.  And as an […]

PHARMACY FINDS

  I’m all for a good splurge on makeup, but when there’s a good deal, I refuse to say no. When I heard there was a new opaque black eyeliner in town, I had to check it out for myself, which led to some wandering in the makeup aisle of Tarjay. Before I knew it, […]

GONE TO THE DARK SIDE

  My polish drawer has probably more dark shades than light, yet you’ll hardly catch me actually sporting it, and I blame my mother for that reason. She instilled in my mind, as a little girl, that dark nail shades aren’t “lady-like”, and if it were 1987, I might’ve agreed, but times have surely changed. […]
