I may not wear much makeup, but when I do, I take it off before bed without fail. The Lashfood line has been on my must-try list—I’ll be sure to order the eye makeup remover along with the mascara.

I kept meaning to try Gradual Tan at the beginning of the summer, but as August wanes, this may be the perfect time to extend the little color I’ve allowed myself. I hear only good things about Aerin’s products and the packaging is beautiful, too.
I’ve had hair, and more specifically hair products, on my mind recently. One of my favorite mini outings is a trip to the pharmacy – not a big-box drugstore, but my local, somewhat old fashioned, apothecary-like, pharmacy. It carries the basics, and stocks a ton of high-end and European brands as well. When I feel like splurging (but not spending a fortune) I hit the pharmacy for a quick fix.
I love the look of towel-dried hair, but it never seems to work on me. This Bumble and bumble creme could be the ticket. Vogue has a story on how to get perfect beach hair and lists some good products, too.
A friend was talking about how much she likes the Charlotte Tilbury products. This reminded me that I’d read a rave review of Tilbury’s Wonderglow, a primer that I’ve wanted to test drive.
When it comes to cosmetics, I’m a less-is-more gal. The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Pen has become my beauty BFF, it’s a concealer and highlighter—a true win-win.
I’m inspired by Daria’s lip color in this story “Liberté de Tons” (freedom of Speech) from the May issue of Vogue Paris. A trip to the Lancome counter may be in order.
I don’t like to color my hair as often as it probably needs it, so, I’m going to try Oribe’s Root Touch-Up Spray. It comes in four shades and also acts as a dry shampoo, now, that’s a win-win.
My friend Alexandra recommends Color Wow Root Cover Up, it has five shades—I’ll try both.
