Making The Cut

New year, new length? A number of actresses sported this length at the Golden Globes last evening and they looked great.

Vogue Japan

Fresh-Faced

These Vogue Japan pictures of Gisele have been sitting on my desktop—I’m smitten with her freckles and gorgeous complexion. I don’t expect to look 37 again but, maybe it’s time for a tweak or two.

I keep talking about the lines around my mouth, but have yet to deal with them properly. A few years ago Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic posted a fantastic skincare guide and swears by lasers, which I am game to try. And more recently, Vogue documented the 15 micro treatments that journalist Jancee Dunn undertook the year prior to her 50th birthday. The video is really interesting; so many procedures that I didn’t even know about.

Facial Oils

Earlier this year I posted on wanting to try a facial oil and my friend Liz emailed me that she loves these two—both look good. My skin has been so dry, I’ll try anything at this point.

Burt’s Bees, Sonia Kashuk. Please read the comments, which are packed with recommendations.

The Beauty Chef

When I was loading this Holiday Boost Set into the kic shop I liked the idea of helping my skin from the inside out. Going to give them a test drive.

Beauty

Bar Soap

I’m a huge bar soap fan—it’s great for traveling and no bottle ends up in a landfill. The secret is to buy good looking dishes. I even use a bar soap facial cleanser so I was thrilled when I spied this Christophe Robin shampoo bar—I can’t wait to try it.

Hair by Sam Mcknight

Sam McKnight is a brilliant hair stylist and I am fortunate to have worked with him on numerous shoots and shows. He recently launched a small line of products and I’m dying to try them, especially the dry shampoo. Tbc.

Beauty

Redness Repair

This summer did my skin no favors. Every sunscreen I tried was irritating and I can only wear a light-weight foundation when I absolutely must. Many friends swear by Tracie Martyn products and this Soothing Serum on GOOP looks promising, too. Suggestions welcome!

Trudon

My beloved candlemaker Ciré Trudon is launching a line of perfumes and Lyn Harris was one of three perfumers hired to create the fragrances. Harvey Nichols and Barneys will carry Trudon exclusively.

Tried and True

I’ve been buying and trying a number of light-weight foundations recently and I keep coming back to Charlotte Tilbury’s products—they are great on my dry skin and aren’t irritating. Until something knocks them off their pedestal, I’m sticking with what works.

Light Wonder, Wonder Glow, The Retoucher, Nude Kate lipstick.

Here Comes The Sun

Chemical-free sunscreen is a hot topic (no pun intended) and GOOP has a number of all natural ones that I want to try. I’m, also, on the hunt for a lightweight, tinted SPF and will test drive Beautycounter’s Dew Skin. Tbc.
