Pastel Paint

March 30, 2010

Easter morning was always so exciting as a child.  Baskets filled with jelly beans, peeps and chocolate bunnies, not to mention the soft-hued hard boiled eggs we hunted throughout the house – which is exactly what i thought of when I got a look at Illamasqua’s Pastel Nails collection for spring.  Their formulas are hard […]

Easy on the Eyes

March 23, 2010

Not only an iconic tool, but also an absolute must in making your eyes look their flirtiest.  I’m talking about Shu Uemuras Eyelash Curler. Yes, its three times as much as the drugstore brands, but it works ten times better. Delivers the perfect curl, and it doesn’t pinch (or worse yet – rip out) your […]

Split Hairs

March 22, 2010

The only true way to make split ends disappear is to snip em off. However, some products can temporarily hide them, or better yet, prevent them from happening to begin with. Bumble and Bumble Mending Masque is like mother’s little helper for your hair. It contains silicones and wheat proteins to protect strands from styling […]

Eye Love It

March 19, 2010

I have finally found an eye cream with SPF in it (it’s hard to find a good one!) that not only protects that oh-so-delicate skin around your eyes from wrinkles and sun damage, but the rich, firming cream also smooths the skin around the eyes while minimizing dark circles and reducing puffiness.  Your eyes will […]

Take Sides

March 15, 2010

Give this tress trend a test drive:  One sided braids with a semi-undone texture is the newest look for spring hair. Use a volumizing moose, like Tresemme’s Volumizing Mousse ($4.99) on damp hair and then blow dry.  Then set hair in rollers for 10 minutes to give body and volume. After unrolling, think back to […]

Puffin Stuff

March 11, 2010

Too many margaritas laced with salty rims last night?  Or maybe you couldn’t say no to the chips and salsa?  Either way, you have woken up with your face as puffy as your down comforter.  Best thing to do is to wrap a cloth around a frozen bag of peas and hold it against your […]
