Knot

Bottega Veneta Every time I say I’m going to find a new perfume, I try one or two, then stick with my trusty Annick Goutal scent. But this time I’m determined to find another one that I love as much, something a bit more sophisticated.

First up will be Bottega Veneta’s Knot fragrance. Lavendar, clementine, rose, peony–meant to evoke the Italian Riviera–sounds good to me.

My Beauty BFF

Lashes are my beauty focus this fall and an eyelash curler is my new BFF. Love that this one from Charlotte Tilbury is gold-tone. Now I need to find the perfect mascara– any recommendations?

Lash Love

Porter

The brightly-colored lipstick renaissance was not my thing, and thankfully it seems to be on the wane, but statement lashes are a beauty trend I’d try, especially for evening.  Along with the fab 60’s fashions on the fall runways came dramatic, often clumpy, lashes. I’ve been studying the makeup in this story from the fall issue of Porter and may need a tutorial to achieve the look. I cannot even remember when I last applied mascara to my bottom lashes, this should be fun.

French Beauty Trophies

31zPARIS-articleLarge When I go to Paris it’s usually for work and I don’t have time to browse in a French pharmacy. I’ll pop in to pick up my tried-and-true products but, I don’t seek out new ones.

This weekend, The New York Times ran a cheat sheet of the best beauty trophies to bring home. Now, I just need to book a flight.

Meow!

I’m a liquid eyeliner convert, and this one by Eyeko + Alexa Chung goes on smoothly, you just need a steady hand. A bit dramatic, it’s perfect for evening. I wasn’t on the hunt for an eyeliner, it was included in The Summer Kit , a box of travel-sized beauty products, from Net-a-Porter.

Sunscreen

I rarely wear makeup, and my moisturizer does not contain SPF, so I have to be prudent about using sunscreen. But I often forget and then burn to a crisp. Like yesterday at my daughter’s graduation, I ended up sitting under a tree. As we head into summer, I would appreciate any product recommendations. Has anyone tried Anthelios?

Lip Smacking

My lips took a beating this winter so I tried to find products that would go the distance. These three are super stars.

‘Do Overs’

My hair is the same length as Anna Ewers’ in the bottom image. This story, by the brilliant hair stylist Guido Palau, is from the May issue of W.
A few days ago, as I was running to a school assembly with my hair tucked into the neck of a turtleneck sweater, I got a number of compliments on my “haircut”. I’m eyeing the top pic and thinking I should give that length a try. TBC

Fekkai Hair Fragrance

I have used Fekkai shampoo and conditioner forever, partly because of how good they smell. So, it’s no surprise that I cannot wait to try their hair fragrances, citron et menthe sounds delicious. The mists also de-frizz, a definite win-win.

Pure Bliss

My hotel in L.A. has a Bliss spa and loaded our bathroom with samples. I’ll admit that I haven’t used a Bliss product in years, but the lemon + sage body wash smells so good that I brought a bottle home and we’re all addicted.
