I used to be so anti-brown eyeshadow, thinking it wouldn’t enhance my own dark eyes. I was wrong & now I’m a total convert.

Just came across this old —and never published— photo on my laptop. A quick shot of Deborah Lippmann’s Today Was A Fairytale. I’m undone with sparkles!

All I ever have is five minutes. You can tell from my still damp hair in the above photo. 
Sometimes, most of the time, I don’t devote that much time putting my face on.

I’m beginning to favor more simple but still striking looks. A glimmer of deep silver shadow, a swipe of my favorite lip pencil, and tried and true mascara are my daily staples. The NARS lip pencil is amazing with a light, non-drying texture. It’s my 90 year old grandmother’s favorite pencil, too. For real.

As much as I adore red lipstick and dramatic looks, let’s be real here. This is a typical every day look for me with just a little bit more volume. Gold tones and and some brown smoke. I used to be vehemently against nude lipstick, but I think I’m coming around…

Finally, a new makeup post! Here I am testing out a shimmery natural look. With some new goodies from Glossybox, I wanted to put a look together that could work for day (not too much dramarama) but stays cool for night (drinks, anyone?).

The light lilac powder is perfect for layering, but I am digging it on it’s own. It would also look neat as a highlighter. So far, I think this face of the day is going to make repeat appearances this spring, no?

Glossy Box International Style: Jet Set Beauty


I love getting little treats every month. Looking forward to Glossy Box is no exception. As the daughter of a self-proclaimed makeup maven, I did not stray far from the family tree where pretty eyeshadow and lush lipsticks are concerned.

With an international theme, I’m looking forward to exploring (and already testing!) out products that can make travel seamless but also just show me newfangled treats from around the globe.

Here’s my loot:

Bvlgari // Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc soap: A musky base that caught me by surprise (in a good way!). It’s a luxurious little soap that makes my skin feel soft, which is a nice restorative treat since my skin seems to always get hit by winter dryness.

Da Vinci Cosmetics // Shimmer Powder: I’m digging this shimmery shade. It’s perfect for a subtle smokey eye and I plan on testing it out for tonight.

Lisi // Eye Definition Cream Eyeliner: I never tried a cream eyeliner before and always meant to buy one. Good thing I didn’t since I am incorporating Lisi with tonight’s look.

Misha // Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask: Snails? Renew mask? I haven’t tried the mask yet, but it seems to have largely positive reviews and I’m keen on anything that recharges my skin.

Nail Rock // Nail Wraps: There’s been buzz on nail wraps. I’m a fan of nail polish strips, so I’m curious to see how these babies hold up. While my patterns is black and white - very Lydia Deetz in Beetlejuice. I feel that whatever I wear will have to be a wee bit muted (makeup and clothing) to off set such a bold manicure.

I’m jazzed to see what’s in store for next month!
