Event Recap: Nordstrom San Francisco Centre Fall 2013 Beauty Trend Show

Backstage access to upcoming beauty trends at Fashion Week is one of the biggest adrenaline rushes I get every year–twice a year.  Unless you are among the beauty-obsessed, it’s difficult to explain the excitement of seeing the current year’s fall beauty trend in February, or the spring trend in September of the previous year.  Nonetheless, […]

The one beauty product that  made serious waves last year was the magical BB Cream.  No, wait..It was the CC Cream.  Or was it? What the heck is a BB Cream anyway, and what makes a CC cream so much better than a BB Cream. Did you jump on board with the flood of BB/CC […]

Fierce Friday: Let the Sunshine in with Yellow Nail Polish

Yellow fingernails?  Yep, it's the trend.  Again… Rihanna rocked yellow nail polish during her raven-haired period, and most recently, Seal was seen with yellow fingernails after his split with Heidi Klum.  Hmmm, what would make a man paint his fingernails yellow? Apparently, the Hollywood set revels in yellow nail polish after a failed romance.  Why? A sunny […]

Blinging Beauty Top 10’s of 2010: Red Lipsticks

If there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I am a red lipstick (and red wine, but that’s another blog) aficionado.  This year I was introduced to some new reds that I adore. I’m so happy for that—it’s taken me back to my glam style, I’m wearing red lips on a daily […]

Budget Beauty Tuesday: My Luscious Lips

I am kinda sorta obsessed with lips. I’m always looking at everyone’s lips.  I’ve even written about lips I love. I think I have the Goldilocks syndrome when it comes to lips.  “Too big.”  “Too small.”  “Too pink.”  “Too dark.” “Too fake.”  “Ohhhhh, unh unh.  __________!” (Insert choice of: smoker, crackhead, too much Vaseline etc.) […]

As much as I love color, I am pretty much a bore with my personal color palette for dressing. Black, black and more black.  Throw in some grey, some white and occasional red or pink and that’s it.  Over the years I suppose I adopted the basic black uniform that makeup artists tend to wear.  […]

Budget Beauty Buys

I’ve had to change my spend happy ways. It’s not necessarily THE economy, it’s MY economy.  I have admitted my beauty obsessions and the ridiculous amount of products I use.  I know I need a 12 step program.  Ummm, I actully like the sound of that.  Sounds like my beauty routine.  I have to face […]

Are You a Beauty Product Junkie?

Dear beauty diary: I wanted to figure out how many beauty products I use each day, so I started my ticker counting when I turned on the shower. Hmmm, Can I count that cup of coffee? It is a diuretic after all, definitely helps with the belly bloat. Getting into the shower and starting count. […]
