The Day in Beauty, Vol. 3: Modern Love, Viktor & Rolf V-Day Sets, Baby Names, and Weird Belly Bands

One of the more unusual things on my bucket list — and I’d say it’s right up there with wanting to learn how to play the accordion — is to go to a concert, or any really big event, and have thousands of balloons rain down from the ceiling/sky, and I blame this on David […] The post, "The Day in Beauty, Vol. Show More Summary

Eyeliner: Sharp or Smudgy?

I want your no-holds-barred, initial gut reaction, homie. (In other words, don’t overthink it!) I prefer sharp liner, for sure. Doesn’t matter if we’re talking about tiny tabby kitten flicks or winged liner of pegasus-ian proportions; sharp, crisp liner lines call to my soul. Show More Summary

The Day in Beauty, Vol. 1: The Little Book of Skin Care, Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Foundation, Hourglass Lip Oil, and Naps

I’m trying something a little different today — a different kind of blog post — something other than a makeup review, because, guuurl…my @ss is tired. Third trimester is no joke. A few weeks ago my friend Jen and I were texting back and forth, and she was like, “I hate to break this to […] The post, "The Day in Beauty, Vol. Show More Summary

Are You Loyal to One Particular Foundation?

In the many conversations I’ve had with different makeup-loving ladies and gents, one thing I’ve come to realize is that when it comes to foundation, most people, when they find one they really like, stick to it like glue. They’re ride-or-die...Show More Summary

Good to the Very Last Drop: Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA+++

Stick-to-itiveness. That’s what I don’t have when it comes to a lot of beauty products. OK, I TRY A LOT OF BEAUTY PRODUCTS, ALRIGHT!? And it’s rare when I stick with one thing long enough to finish it, but that’s what I did with this sunscreen by Murad. Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 358

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?” Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 382

Dear Diary, I’m baaack! Guess who returned from the islands feeling refreshed and renewed? This cat right here. I’m still going through some vacation withdrawals, so bear with me if I occassionally lapse into a Hawaiian chant or get up to do the hula. Show More Summary

Leave a Comment for a Chance to Win a $50 Sephora E-GIFT CARD! (Ends Monday)

See, now, I knew I should have gotten that toy shark pincher claw thingy when I saw it at the Monterey Bay Aquarium a couple weeks ago because I could really use longer arms right now. I move around like a seal out of water! TurningShow More Summary

Makeup I Wore Today

Guess what…? Today I wore absolutely no beige or brown on my lids. I know! Small victories. And I also managed to refrain (for once) from wearing a nude lip. I went with mauve and taupe eyes with glowing, bronzed matte cheeks (no blush...Show More Summary

Yeah, It’s Time to Highlight These Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders

Whenever I think of Hourglass makeup, I think of elegance…refinement…and makeup that’s friggin’ beautiful, and their four new $38 Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders evoke the living daylights out of all three of those things (I also talk about them briefly in this 5 Things I’m Loving Lately video).

5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

There should be a video right up here in this post, but if it isn’t appearing for any reason, you can click here to watch it on YouTube. You wouldn’t think that hair ties would be something to be particular about, but I’m so particular about my hair ties. Show More Summary

Carter’s Baby Clothes and Possible Future Outfits of the Day?

I’ve been advised by well-meaning friends and family members to refrain from buying too many baby outfits and clothes, despite the powerful urge, because clothes are usually what friends and family end up gifting ya…and everything ends...Show More Summary

Neutrals or Brights? (Assuming That You Have To Pick One or the Other)

Quick! Just go with your gut… Don’t overthink it, because, ya know, with hard-hitting makeup questions like this one (totally kidding), your first reaction is usually the truest, best one. Anyway, SURPRISE! — I’m gonna have to go with neutrals, only partly because I’ve been wearing them so much lately, but that’s just a phase. Show More Summary

MAC Unsung Heroes: Satin Taupe Eye Shadow

What’s an unsung makeup hero? For me, it’s an oftentimes underrated makeup morsel, a permanent collection product that scoots under the radar screen of many makeup lovers but regularly rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites. Show More Summary

There’s a Saturn-sized world of blushes out there (says the girl with a messy drawer of pink blushes that needs to be organized), and a galactic gaggle of blush formulas — powder, cream, liquid, mousse and more — but do you find yourself gravitating toward one blush formula more than others?

The Cargo Venice Enchantment Eye Shadow Palette: Venice, Here I Come!

One of the good things about the post-holiday period: the sales! They’re a good reason to wait to make some purchases until after the holiday shopping madness mellows, because sometimes you can find things like holiday makeup palettes marked down. Show More Summary
