Little Steps for a Polished Look with Tarte

Tarte Clay

Through trial and error I’ve come to acknowledge that the key to achieving the polished look is investing in the time to lay down the prep work for a look that lasts. Any look can be polished for a short stint, but the kind of sophisticated look we want looks fresh and pretty even at 5pm.

Two little steps you can take that make a world of difference? Priming the eyes and grooming the brows.




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.



Let’s Talk Bright Colors

Valentino Rockstud T-Strap Pumps

Let’s talk fashion. We all know that wearing dark colors is slimming, but honestly to me, bright, interesting colors are so much more fun. My advice for those branching out of a neutral color palette? Start small with pointed, meaningful accents of color rather than donning a coral sundress.

Makeup is a great way to get started in the realm of bright color. Just like cosmetics are an accessible form of designer goods, cosmetics are an approachable way to play with color.



Morsels of the Week ft. Madewell, Acai, and NARS

Fashion and beauty

I’m back in Massachusetts now on the East Coast, which is the complete opposite end of the country from where I was the last time I posted a “Morsels of the Week.” I’m honestly glad to be back and settled down for a while. Living out of a suitcase is no fun!

Fashion and beauty loves currently are the Valentino Rockstud T-Strap Pump (similar here), Tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint ($24 US), NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($25 US), Chanel Glossimer ($29.50 US).



What’s in my Makeup Bag?

The Daily Cookie 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.
