It is Friday and you know what that means… I’m back on Great Day Green Country and it is time to ring in spring. After a frigid and icy weekend, we have 60s and 70s for the next four or five days (yes, there is a patio in my near future – likely around happy […]
Happy Valentine’s Day! While I admit this day isn’t my favorite, I am going to embrace my inner cupid in my most favorite way possible – makeup! If it is a night in or a fancy evening on the town, Valentine’s Day makeup calls for a little romance. May I suggest even if you are single, […]
What’s not to love about Laura Mercier? Her color is all about flawless skin and wearable formulas and shades. Spring is no different. Inspired by Spring Renaissance, expect youthful and fresh colors with lots of shine and glow. Laura achieved this with warm shades, luminous skin and corals and peaches.
I have great appreciation for Pantone and their annual “color of the year”. I couldn’t have been more enthusiastic about 2013′s selection, Emerald. But I need to be honest here. I felt like their 2014 selection, Radiant Orchid, was out of nowhere. I couldn’t wrap my head around the ultra-femine and somewhat dated shade. But […]

Kate Spade isn’t one of those lifestyle companies that just jumped into beauty. No, they have approached it with great thought, reflecting the style and design they are known for. Their SUPERCALIFRAGILIPSTICK! is no slouch. This creamy lipstick made its way through a glorious Thanksgiving dinner and marathon Sunday Funday (can you think of a better […]
NARS recently launched their third gift set honoring a city (other city-based gift sets include NARS Loves New York and NARS Loves LA). Each set is inspired by the unique culture and it so happens that Miami’s has some of the most iconic, top-selling shades. This version includes and eye and cheek palette with:
You guys know I am a BiTE Beauty junkie. I love this indie line that focuses on rich, nourishing lip products. Can you really call a brand indie if it is carried at Sephora? Well, you get the idea. I featured these holiday gifts in this post but I felt they merited a revisit.
There is something thrilling about seeing my fellow beauty bloggers develop their very own line up makeup. I cannot wait to see IIID foundation from the beautiful Maskcara! In the meantime, I’ve been playing around with the latest from Michelle Phan’s em michelle phan Holiday Collection. I love the concept of her “super-palettes” and couldn’t wait […]
