I am fair-skinned, blue-eyed and a blonde, which is about as far from emulating the Kim Kardashian look as you can get. Although my look suits me just fine, there are times when I am trying to keep up — not with the Kardashian clan — with Kim’s makeup looks.
How does Kim wear so much eye makeup and not seem to be in pain? Not a grimace, nothing watering, no redness… It appears that she does have talent after all!
It is no secret that I have the world’s most sensitive …
I am beyond thrilled this spring! Bobbi Brown has relaunched her Sheer Lip Color ($24.00) range. Back when I was at the counter, I always championed this formula: it was easy-to-wear, the shades were amazing and it lasted forever. And then the inevitable happened: it was discontinued. My heart sank. No Bare Stain, no Pinkberry Stain. I was so sad.
Well, this spring we can all rejoice! The Sheer Lip Color range has been revamped and reshaped. I was happy that the texture is the same: it’s a semi-matte, but has …
At a recent neighborhood party, my friend Sarah passed me the new NARS blush she was sure I hadn’t tried. “A bit dark for me,” I replied. Secure with my own shade of Deep Throat by the same brand.
“Here,” she said, thrusting the makeup brush into my hands. It appeared to be covered in powder, mingled with tiny bits of dust and I wondered: Did she clean this makeup brush from time to time or… ever?!
The idea of sharing makeup brushes slightly grossed me out. After all, I had read …

Sonia Kashuk first came across my radar in the early 90s, as she was Cindy Crawford‘s personal makeup artist. Then she started her eponymous line for Target. I was excited to see what she has come up with for Spring ’13.
If you aren’t already familiar with Sonia’s products, please do so. Her attention to detail and quality are second to none in the mass market. Her brush sets and cosmetics are department store quality, but at a price we can all appreciate.

Give me your tired, ruddy and unglamorous skin. And I’ll give you Bobbi Brown . When I first worked for Bobbi Brown , I was a mere twenty-one-year-old, whose biggest concern was how to look awake at work after all-night dance parties. Now that I’m slightly older, my concerns are to still look awake, although the dance party scene is long gone.
The Brighten, Sparkle & Glow Collection is full of tinted eye brighteners, sparkly eyeshadows, shimmery glosses and finishing powders that are all lifesavers. These products really do liven up …

The basic types of foundation are liquid, which come in different versions, either moisturizing and oil-free; powder, which is great to use either alone or on top of …
