Look at this handsome trio! Now, I’m sure you’re wondering why I would need the Ole Henriksen The Whole Truth Vitamin C Kit when I have all that other skincare, but there is a method to my madness.

It will surprise no one that I like to shop. Or that I like to travel. Or that I like to shop while I’m traveling. Since I’m heading off to France (I know, again) in a week and a half, I thought I would write up a guide with everything I’ve learned about shopping overseas.

I’m not ashamed to say that this face of the day with Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner and MAC All Fired Up lipstick was inspired by a look I saw on another beauty blog. Even people obsessed with beauty products can get stuck in a rut.
That’s why Simone’s look was such a revelation for me—it reminded me of the days I actually used to wear COLOR on my EYES. And it gave me a way to ease myself back into it, and to do it again in a different, edgy way.
I may or may not intend to buy the colors she used (hey, green looks good with brown eyes!). but I immediately was reminded that, hey, I have the same liner in a gorgeous purple. And so the look was born.

I have a backlog of items I’ve collected over the past month that I’ve not written about, and this set is budget-friendly, so you don’t have to worry about my spending practices. 😉 (I promise, I’m accumulating them gradually!) Up this time is NYX Taupe Blush and Infinite Shadowstick in Almond.
The Taupe blush is especially exciting for me, since it’s my first shot at trying my hand at contouring (trying the cheap alternative to this Wishlist Wednesday item). I mean, now that I have the brush, I need the contour!
My cheekbones are weird (just like my downturned eyes!), and they don’t have the hollow until the middle of my cheek, so I’m trying to adjust Karima’s tutorial to my own face. I’ll post some photos once I’ve started to master it and let you see how it’s going.
The Infinite Shadowstick in Almond was inspired by this post on The Beauty Department. In what feels like an endless winter, I wanted the touch of summer that look offered.
I was a bit surprised to see how warm-leaning it was in person. In the makeup look, it came off as a lot cooler and more taupe. It’s definitely a warm, amped up peachy champagne. It’s actually really lovely; I wore it yesterday and loved it, but it’s also not at all how it looked. (Come to think of it, the pencil pictured doesn’t even look like this pencil. I wonder if they actually used the Sephora version…the pencil even looks right…)
Again, I’ll have to show you how this looks on in the future. But here are some swatches:
Have you tried either of these? Or any other NYX products? They’re so affordable, it makes me want to try more!

I know it’s very French to wear red lips with no eye makeup, just mascara, but I feel like my eye shape and features look washed out and dull without both shadow and liner. But then when I use very nude, natural colors, I feel like I need something more.
Then the other night I saw this photo of Olivia Palermo (I don’t even really know who she is or why she’s famous, but she’s gorgeous, has great style, and her
boyfriend fiance is a stone fox.)
I’m not sure if you know this, but I’m a little bit of a red lipstick aficionado. So with the day of hearts and flowers and red lips (gag gag gag, sorry) upcoming, I thought I would share my top red lipstick picks at every budget level (and in every formula)!
One day left to this
godforsaken year, so I thought I would share my favorite products. This year was a weird one, in terms of my beauty and skincare purchasing. I managed to earn Sephora VIB Rouge status in August, yet haven’t been able to buy too much since then. So I feel like I’ve already discussed my favorites previously, but, well, without further ado…
As luck would have it, this year was all about the foundation and lipsticks for me.
