I have always been obsessed with the ‘50s and ‘60s glamour icons Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly…The list goes on and on. I never quite felt comfortable with bright red lips.
Since I’m not blonde, I didn’t quite like bright pinks either. Tomato reds, corals — that is where I found my comfort zone. When I discovered these glamour queens of old, I felt like I had acquired a different beauty look.
I’ve compiled a list of the ultimate glamazon-inspired lip shades! These shades range from the palest …

The summer months are on their way, and I’m really looking forward to feeling the sun on my skin. However, living in Hawaii also means that I have to be extra careful when going out in the sun — making sunblock very important. Brush on Block Instant Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 by Susan Posnick ($30.00) is going to be my best friend this summer, and I am loving its ease of use, convenience and protection!
Developed by Susan Posnick, beauty professional and skincare expert, Brush On Block was created to encourage …
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 …
Before The Great Gatsby hits theater on May 10th, get Daisy Buchanan‘s makeup (played by lead actress Carrie Mulligan, sided by the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio) from this latest novel-to-the-big-screen romantic drama.
As you can see, Daisy’s makeup is very delicate and feminine, but holds power at the same time. The story takes place during the 1920′s, but in this modern film version of The Great Gatsby, the makeup does not take on the particular extreme-retro look that was seen in this era of the ‘20s.
It is modified into more …

Experiencing uneven skintone, discoloration or age spots? Perricone MD Cosmeceuticals has launched Vitamin C Ester Serum ($98.00) formulated to deliver the brightness and clarity of youthful looking skin. Over a seven day period one is supposed to see visible results, and, over time, even stronger results.
I am a proponent for new sciences and technologies leading us into a direction of more powerful skincare products (as I am not ready for fillers, Botox, etc.).
This serum was designed for your face, eyes and lips — it instantly gives one a luminous glow and …
I was so excited to receive the Aveda Spring 2013 Color Collection: Art of Nature. In line with Aveda‘s brand image, the packaging is simple: a clear clamshell case houses a single pan of Petal Essence Single Eye Color ($14.00) eyeshadow in a cardboard package.
I was slightly disappointed — I am used to a compact, yet, I found the single pan awkward to use. Aveda does offer Total Face Envirometal Compact ($16.00-28.00), which keeps your color, and your environmentalism, close at hand.
The colors are clean and bright. The shades are wearable; …
