I Put on Makeup Today!

Ya know what occurred to me the other day at 2 in the morning while I was in tears and feeding Connor? Babies have no need for concealer, even if they’re up all night. Amazing! If I look a little tired…that’s because I am. Connor Claire’s...Show More Summary

The Best in Beauty From the Boot, Vol. 3: Deborah Milano

Deborah Milano is an Italian drugstore makeup brand, but today I’ll pretend she’s just a friend, because I’m pretty exhausted from working long hours at Cosmoprof, which is a huge beauty expo here in Bologna, for the past four days, and I could really use a friendly face. Show More Summary

Sweet Scrubs: Clinique Sweet Pots and the Pixi Nourishing Lip Polish

Tarte Drench Lip Splash Lipstick and Sea Quench Lip Rescue Treatments From the Rainforest of the Sea Collection

My first Tarte product ever was a twist-up lipstick in pencil form. Lipsticks like it weren’t widely available at the time, and it was so convenient to just pop the twist-up color in my messenger bag before running off to class. Several...Show More Summary

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation and Aquacealer Concealer: For a Complexion as Smooth as the Smoothest Seashell

If there’s one piece of mythical holy grail makeup that I’m basically always on a mission to find, it’s The Perfect Foundation.

It’s officially spring! And it seems like El Niño (and Karl the Fog) got the memo here in the Bay, because we’ve had nothing but sunshine for the past few days. Also, now that it’s warming up, I’m busting out the lip stains, which might be my favorite beauty items for the spring/summer months. Show More Summary

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
