Beauty Trend to Try: Neutral Eye Shadow

Neutral eye shadow palettes

Who said neutrals have to be boring? I recently purchased the AMAZING Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and am in love. You can create dozens of looks from the colors in the palette, and I actually use all of them, which doesn’t usually happen with most eye shadow palettes. I chose the Naked 2 since the colors included are cooler and those tend to work best with my complexion (grays, taupes and cool browns). Continue Reading

Beauty Lesson Learned: Replace Your Makeup Brushes!

bareMinerals brushes

So I learned a beauty lesson the hard way this month. I’ve been complaining about my complexion being really, really off lately. I haven’t changed my eating habits or used different face wash or foundation, but my skin has been so dry and broken out. I made sure the makeup brush I used to apply my bareMinerals was washed, but after a month of this (and no improvement with my skin), I figured out the culprit. Continue Reading

I found this light turquoise top with leather trim at Francesca’s (they always have the most unique pieces), and it works perfectly with a black moto jacket and coated leather pants!

There are some beauty products you just can’t live without. Whether it’s your favorite mascara or blush, some products have us hooked from the first time we try them! I have a couple of products that I am extremely loyal to (don’t get me started on BareMinerals – you just can’t compare!). But recently, I’ve been hooked on a not-so-basic beauty product: eye shadow primer. Continue Reading

Golden Globes 2014: Best and Worst Dressed Recap

Margot Robbie in Gucci.

The Golden Globes is one of my favorite awards shows of the season. I love that there are both TV and movie actors there – so much glam packed into one night. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did an amazing job their second time hosting, and they both looked gorgeous! I definitely pay more attention to the dresses than the show, so I just had to make a best and worst dressed list. Here are my picks for the best – and worst – dressed. Continue Reading
