Some various beauty from the last couple of weeks: (clockwise from top left)
• Roasted Beets and Avocado at Craft. No Tom Colicchio sighting, but these were almost as good. Special appearance by my radiant orchid mani; MAC Herione with Deborah Lippmann Edge of Glory on top. Fun note, this combo made Beauty Junkies Unite gasp!
• My garage in the rain. I drove up to it the other night and thought “That’s pretty, I should take a picture.” But decided against it thinking “it’s just a garage” and drove in (as evident by the wet tire tracks.) Something hit me and I pulled back out and shot it. Who cares if it’s just a garage? It’s ‘effen gorgeous. Lesson learned, beauty comes in all forms.
• Chocolate Strawberry Jam by Stonewall Kitchen. I didn’t buy this, but I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
• My new House of Harlow 1960 ring. I feel like a superhero when I wear it. And there’s that radiant orchid mani again!
Question of the Week: Is there a makeup application technique that you’ve tried to master, but just can’t seem to conquer?
Answer: Well, I would have said contouring a few months ago, but I’ve been practicing. And I think I’m getting the hang of it! The key? A product that is shimmer free and just few shades darker than your skintone, paired with a beautiful highlighter.
