How to keep your makeup organized for travel

How to keep your makeup organized for travel

I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately, and I’m not an extremely organized person by nature. Usually I end up with three or four makeup bags full of hair, skin care, and makeup. It’s funny really, because otherwise I can pack pretty light.

I picked up the Beauty Butlerat The Makeup Show Dallas thinking that perhaps it would be good for travel. At the very least I could keep my day to day makeup…

Tilda Swinton is the new face of NARS

Tilda Swinton is the new face of NARS

WWD.com reported yesterday that Tilda Swinton will be the new face of NARS Cosmetics.

“I love [Tilda’s] bold style and really admire her work,” Nars told WWD, adding that he chose the fiftysomething Swinton in part because of the roles she chooses as an actress, such as in the films “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

I think she’s a fantastic choice, what do you think?

Mani Monday on Wednesday: Artsy by Revlon

Mani Monday on Wednesday: Artsy by Revlon

It’s been one of those weeks. I’ve had a funeral and a wedding all at once, and I think my head is still spinning, so I haven’t been writing much. But I have still been painting my nails (because of course – when life is complicated nails are easy), and I’ve found a new favorite.

I’ve made it known that I am a complete sucker for cobalt blue. I probably have at least 500 polishes that are the…

Be ready for fall with Make Up For Ever

Be ready for fall with Make Up For Ever

If you’re not acquainted with Make Up For Ever’s new Artist Shadows, you are missing out on some amazing makeup. I’ve never seen a shadow with this kind of texture – it’s a gel-powder, according to the brand. I don’t know exactly what that is, but I can tell you that the color payoff is amazeballs, and I haven’t even worked with it very long. Blended with super-fine pigments, these are shadows…

No time to cover roots? Cheat with Black Opal

No time to cover roots? Cheat with Black Opal

Grays are my nemesis. Just when I think I’m going to have a hot minute where they aren’t popping through and trying to tell the world that I’m old, I look in the mirror and see even more than I had before. And it’s been a long fight, too – I’ve been going gray since I was 28. It’s not fair at all, especially given that I have dark hair, and nothing shows up more than gray hairs in dark hair.

Monday Mani: blue and gold

Monday Mani: blue and gold

I was digging around in my nail polish bin (I really, really need a better system – this one that I’ve created is a disaster) and I was looking for a dark, royal blue with some shimmer to it. I know I have such polishes, because I buy a bottle of shimmery royal blue every fall. It’s an illness, people. Don’t judge.

Instead of a vampy blue, I stumbled across CoverGirl’s Outlast Stay Brilliant line…
