Would A J.Crew Model Wear It?

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

When shopping for lipstick, gloss, or tint, my internal monologue goes a little something like this: “Hmmm. It’s a super pretty color, but would a J.Crew model wear it?”


Just me?

Anyhow, nothing is fueling my interior monologue fire more than J.Crew’s February catalog.  I love the nearly nude eyes and the pop of pastel lips the models are wearing.

Now the fun part: searching a slew of spring shades for the perfect J.Crew-y color.

All That Glitters is Gold

Friday, December 30th, 2011

What could be more glamorous than gold? The shimmering metallic color has recently made a stunning resurgence, appearing not only in decorative objects and picture frames, but also in furnishings, sunglasses, and nail polish. It can be as gleaming and reflective as chrome and silver, but gold also has the advantage that its sunny character is infinitely warmer.

Here are a few of my favs.  Enjoy!

Eye Urban Decay. Do You?

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

When I started playing around with the idea of wearing a cat eye a couple months ago, I went to the beauty super store Sephora where the make-up artist revealed the secret to to achieving the perfect playful look is an awesome liquid eye liner

She said Urban Decay makes the most lovely liquid liners, and she was right.  Since then, I have fallen in love with the largest independently owned color cosmetic company in the United States whose tag line states it all, “Beauty With an Edge.”

And apparently, Santa thought I’d been a good girl this year because he left all sorts of Urban Decay products in my stocking, including a set of pocket-size 24/7 Shadow Pencils.

This set is like a box of ridiculously chic crayons for your eyes. You get all the creamy, waterproof, vibrant color of pencils in a fat shape that’s super versatile: use the wide side of the pencil to shadow larger areas with ease or use the thin tip to line your eyes.  This set makes achieving dramatic washes of color and precise lines so easy, in hues that run the gamut from soft and shimmery to deep and bright.  The range of looks you can create with this set is endless.

Try it!  You’ll like it!
