A Beauty Review: Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow

Lancôme Color Design Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in “It” List ($19) A deep, matte black shadow.

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Manicure Monday: Watercolors

Admittedly, I’ve been getting pretty technical with my manicures lately. From chevron to tribal print, some of these manicures really require a steady hand.  With today’s manicure, that’s not the case.  While the look may have been inspired by the gorgeous paintings of Monet and Cézanne, you don’t need to be a famous artist to […]

A Beauty Review: Benefit’s They’re Real

There is no secret to the perfect lashes.  I’m a firm believer that everyone is different – including your lashes.  Some people might need a volumizing mascara, while others might need a lengthening mascara.  One mascara might make someone look like they have doll lashes, but it might make someone else look like they’ve got […]

Manicure Monday: Haute Reverse French

For all those I haven’t blabbed to, I’m currently spending the week in Paris! What better way to rock Manicure Monday in France than with a French manicure? You might be saying, Can this chick get over French manicures already? But I’m a huge fan of the French – I think it elongates your nails and […]
