Get the Look: Cheeky Bronze Glow

Bronzed and Beautiful Skin

Although lately I’ve been getting more obsessed with lippies (stay tuned for my thoughts on an amazing new one from NARS!), I’m a face product girl at heart. Nothing excites me more than the promise of glowy skin that takes perfect to the next level.

Often times though, my face makeup routine is really simple. I forgo foundation for concealer and powder on a daily basis. But when I want to step up my game for a fun night out with the girls or a dinner date, I like layering my favorite cheek products for a gorgeous finish that is guaranteed to last.




What’s in my Makeup Bag?

Day to day, my everyday makeup routine doesn’t change that much. After years of trial and error I know what works for my eye shape, so variety for me comes in the form of lippies and cheek products. I love mixing different blushes and highlighters for the prettiest effects for instance.

The products shown are just a snapshot of what I’m wearing and loving now, but pared down without the bit of “variety” that I mentioned above.



Picture This: See By Chloé Eau Fraîche

Like many beauty products, perfume is actually quite difficult to use up if you’re not wearing the same one everyday. It’s also very personal, so I tend to go through phases where I can’t get enough of one scent and then can’t stand it for a period.

Chloé is one of my favorite designers, but I had never really given any of the perfumes in the line a shot. See By Chloé Eau Fraîche ($78 US) is exactly what I imagine when I attempt to match the aesthetic of the See By Chloé brand to a scent.



Beautiful Design Makes the New NARS Brush Line Stand Out

To me, geishas are an intriguing source of fascination and inspiration. I wrote a research paper about them a few years ago, but they continue to interest me as a subject, and I hope to write a thesis about them in the future.

Of course when I first saw the new NARS brush line, the sleek designs instantly reminded me of black lacquer, like the kind that is ubiquitous in a geisha’s world. Naturally, the aesthetic speaks to me.

As much as I love the convenience of having so many brands under one roof when I’m shopping at Sephora or a department store, I treasure the shopping experience I have at freestanding boutiques.

The most noticeable difference between the two would be the employees, who are much more passionate and knowledgeable about the company and line at a boutique. Little perks like samples or a visually engaging window display are just perks to the actual people in the store that embody the shopping experience.
