Fuss-Free, Natural-Looking Makeup in 10 Minutes

Serums to Lighten Your Skincare Regimen for Summer

I have been missing Paris lately, and I kept thinking about how women there never wear ANY makeup. You know why? Because their skin is FLAWLESS, even the older women. So I thought I might talk to you about the virtues of using a serum in your skin-care regimen, especially now that winter has finally loosened its grip....more
Thanks for this post. I actually already own the Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Serum. It ...more

BB Creams: What You Need To Know

What exactly is a BB cream? I am glad you asked!!! I have seen BB creams around for YEARS, especially in Asia, where they have risen to cult status. They are essentially tinted moisturizers with added goodies like anti-aging skincare, primer and SPF. The “BB” stands for "blemish balm" or "beauty balm."...more

Try This: Wedge Sneakers

I normally shy away from trends but this is one that I couldn't pass up!  Wedge sneakers are all the rage right now BUT the reason why I love them?  They give you height AND they save your feet!  You can get them at pretty much any price point and plenty of actual sneaker companies like Nike and Puma are getting into the game.  My favorite pair is this lovely number by Nike using the Liberty London print....more

Serums to Keep Skin Swoonworthy for Valentine’s Day

By now, you must have heard of them: facial serums. I always like to say that serums are like little skincare specialists. They offer targeted solutions for different issues, depending on your skin type and needs, but all of them are fantastic. Ultimately, serums can help your skin tremendously. The molecules in a serum are much smaller than that of a cream, which allows it to penetrate the skin more easily. You can get deeper into the layers of your skin to places a regular moisturizer can’t reach. ...more

Must Have: Globetrotting Beauty Essentials

I have heard way too many stories about people having their expensive moisturizers and foundations thrown out by airport security. The secret to streamlining your beauty routine when you travel is organization. Plan ahead, and you will have one less thing to worry about. One of my best tricks is stocking up on sample sizes, especially if you are only going to be gone for a few days. Hit up your local department store or Sephora, and ask for a few samples of moisturizers and serums. Most places aren’t as stingy as they used to be and will freely allow you to sample products upon request. ...more
