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.

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.

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.

Vogue Arabia

A High Ponytail

Hair stylist Teddy Charles gave Bianca Balti a polished, yet practical, high ponytail for this Vogue Arabia story—perfect for steamy evening events.

At First Blush

The Khaite image got me thinking about blusher—Charlotte Tilbury makes some of the best.

Lashfood

My friend swears by Lashfood products, especially the mascara. I’m going to test drive the ‘Lash Transformation System’ and will let you know.
