Can I just say, it took all of my strength to NOT wear nude lips with this look today, but I dug deep and busted out a glossy, orangey red instead. Thank you, babe, for giving me strength! You know, it’s funny…but this is basically the...Show More Summary

Lombard Street, Painted Ladies and Adventures in San Francisco

El Hub and I played hooky to spend the day in San Francisco and celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary (10!) last Thursday. We didn’t go having any plans. We just kind of wanted to wing it and hang out with each other doing something...Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 431

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 eight (!) years. Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 406

If you’re a cat, there’s a lot to see and do on our little oak tree-covered hill. It’s home to a thriving community of turkeys, deer, other cats (some nice, some malcontents), dogs, coyotes, quail, finches, owls, hawks, crows, woodpeckers, raccoons, squirrels, foxes and a rabbit (or two), to name a few.

The Day in Beauty Vol. 21: Pancakes and Painting Paws With Essie Gel Couture Nail Polish

A Quick Modern Pin-Up Look With Glo Minerals

I gotta say that this Glo Minerals neutral eyeshadow palette and cream blush are sooo good! I mean, the blush is crazy pigmented, and the eyeshadows are smooth and silky. After trying the Glo Minerals lip crayons a couple of months ago, I’d been dying to try more from the brand. Show More Summary

Some Thoughts on Makeup and Life

You guys. So, it occurred to me the other day when I did the same look for the umpteen millionth time with lashes, liner and a nude lip that I might be in a makeup rut. Like a serious makeup rut! And I think I need help. So, where do...Show More Summary

NARS Fall 2016 First Impressions

Ooh, the NARS Fall 2016 collection makes me wanna unleash my inner artiste! Look at all those pencils… My goodness. I’m tempted to grab one of my adult color books. Coming July 15 to NARS boutiques and the NARS website, and sometime in August to Sephora and NARS counters, this one’s mostly about the pencils. Show More Summary

Three Wallet-Friendly Products From Umberto Beverly Hills That Protect, Tame and Add Glorious Shine!

NYC summer is in full swing, and it is HOT. When it’s breazy, it’s bearable, but when it’s not…it’s awful, y’all. I have to wash my hair every day, which is not how I normally like to roll. When it’s hot like this, my best buddy is dry...Show More Summary

When it comes to haircare, I have NO LOYALTY.  I will switch things up in a minute because I usually don’t feel like there’s anything that’s all that unique.  But, despite my persistent product junkie-ism, I find myself always coming back to these five products. Show More Summary

Tom Ford Fall 2016 Orchid Collection Nightbloom Powder in Velvet Bloom and Velvet Orchid Lip Color

Is this jewelry, or is this makeup? — because sometimes with Tom Ford I just can’t tell! Do wear it on my face, or do I dangle it from a chain and rock it as a statement necklace? I gotta hand it to Tommy-boy for nailing the whole luxury aesthetic. Show More Summary

Look No Further for Your Perfect Summer Lipstick! The MAC Huggable Lipcolours Are All You Need

I’ve taken a break from the heavy makeup lately, honestly, probably out of pure laziness (pregnancy saps my energy), but I’m kind of digging it! On days that I actually put on makeup, it’s usually dewy skin that showcases my new summer...Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 405

I’m very confident that Tabs would have fared well during Egyptian times. He and I were watching Terminator: Genesis yesterday (well, we were trying to, but the movie’s just so bad…), and during one of the time travel scenes, I looked...Show More Summary

The Day in Beauty, Vol. 20: Roses and Tea with Annick Goutal, and a Bouquet of Lovely Lavender

Hey, sweetie boo, happy Caturday! ???? It’s a sun-shiney day in Novato today, and I’m up bright and early because babylove is all about that rolling over lifestyle. She figured out how to roll over, and now it’s all she wants to do, so she got up at 6 for her morning meal and workout. Show More Summary

My Latest Skincare Finds for Combination Skin

Over the past year or two, my decidedly normal skin became very “combination.” Maybe it was my cross-country move from NYC to the Bay Area, or maybe it’s just that I’m in my 30s now, but I’m constantly looking for the right products for my sensitive, combination skin. Show More Summary

How Do You Store Your Makeup Brushes?

What’s your current makeup brush storage situation? Do you stick them in your favorite mug (the one that says “Crazy Cat Lady” on it), throw them in your makeup bag, or drop ’em in a box all willy-nilly? Or do you do something else?Show More Summary
