Who I Love To Follow!


As a makeup blogger I get asked about my favorite products and also what sites I love to read. I get swept into new sites all the time but have a few on my must read list. I would love to hear who you follow and why!


I met Patrice at a Beauty Event in New York and beside being gorgeous she exudes a glow and happiness that makes you want to just hang out with her. She is an amazing woman and has a great blog, she covers everything from drugstore beauty products, New Products, to music and social issues. One of those sites you get a lot of great info and leave with a smile because of it’s great writer.

I stumbled on the Tip Junkie site in my Blog Frog Community. Laurie is funny and has the best craft ideas for beauty products, kids, gifts… the list goes on and on. I am more of a crafter in my mind I love to look and think about it but never seem to find the time to sit and create something. I love following Tip Junkie on Facebook  and seeing her latest and greatest tips, I have even used a few of the baking ideas for my kids birthday parties. She has so many great tips and they range from beginner to craft goddess a little something for everyone.



Another great blog find in the Blog Frog CommunityMama’s Losin’ It,  Kat is hilarious! I love her posts and videos on running her daycare, life with kids, beauty, writing workshops you name it she covers it. She is so funny and manages to keep a straight face in her videos, I always end up cracking up. She is a great write and one of those girls you just want to hangout with and grab a coffee or a few bottles of wine. Check out her Golden Hues makeup tutorial, love it!

NARS has released it’s first look at their fall and holiday collection, inspired by Andy Warhol! We are loving the gorgeous colors inspired by the pop artist!

The collection comes just months before the 25th anniversary of Andy Warhol’s passing and takes inspiration from the artist’s most famous works, his muses, and his own unique look.

The main collection, which hits Sephora on October 1st, is filled with vibrant color lip glosses, eyeshadows, and, of course, nail lacquers. The super-luxe teal color is going on my nails asap.

The second installment of the collection will launch on NARS’ website on November 1st, is filled with limited-edition gift sets in holiday party-appropriate colors including this high-five-worthy nail polish set. These four pretty shades will get any girl through party season.

True Love Can Be Found in a Compact!

So I  have a little crush on bareMinerals between Big & Bright Eyeliner, Faux Tan, Purifying Facial Cleanser… the list goes on and on. Well this crush of mine has turned into full blown  love with the new bareMinerals READY® SPF 20 Foundation. If you like me have shied away from some of the loose products due to the mess factor this is the product for you!

Just swirl and tap and start to apply in circles. It gives the most beautiful coverage for a flawless look but lets your skin shine through and never looks overdone. My favorite feature is how long this stuff lasts, even on the hottest summer days my face looked as good at the end of the day as the beginning.  It feels so amazingly light and smooth on my skin it is my new go to foundation, Love , Love, LOVE!

Sephora Exclusive! Marchesa Parfum D’Extase – Available Now!

Transcend into the endlessly glamorous world of MARCHESA where intricate dreams are spun into breathtaking opulence. From every ornate drape to each exquisitely executed detail, Marchesa’s signature touch is as effortless as it is seductive. With an air of mystery and desire Marchesa masterfully creates their premiere elixir, a truly enchanting scent available exclusively at Sephora. One spray will take you to a world of fantasy and imagination that is unforgettable, enticing and uniquely their own.

“Like with our dress designs, we wanted our scent to feel sensual and feminine yet still embrace and celebrate the wearers unique style and sensibility” said Georgina Chapman, designer and co-founder of MARCHESA. “It is the essence of our muse transformed into a fragrance that distinctly captures her in her most beautiful and purest form .”

MARCHESA parfum d’extase opens with light florals, giving way to a combination of fresh and woody notes that create the scent’s complexity and beauty. Iris is the secret to the fragrance’s richness, capturing the delicate essence of its flower petals and the dark sensuality of its precious roots. Complementing the timeless elegance of the Iris flower are the beautifully fresh elements of Freesia and Young Violet Leaves to help lead the fragrance into the heart. Comprised of Night Blooming Jasmine, the heart weightlessly transcends the senses into the sensuous background. Here the Iris Root blends together with Ambrox and Musks, the finishing touch to the sublime composition of this intoxicating and unforgettable elixir. Marchesa’s new fragrance clearly defines their distinct artist vision and transports you into an ethereal world.

With as much discipline, precision and care given to each piece they create, the co-founders of Marchesa collaborated with SEPHORA to develop the latest sculptural representation of the brand. Capturing the ecstasy of a perfect moment, the fragrances’ elegantly designed bottle was crafted by Malin Ericson, Creative Director at Vanessa Stevens + Company to evoke the same look and feel of exotic raw quartz crystal, a powerful gemstone known for its positive energy and abundant healing qualities. Each bottles shape uniquely emulates the natural facets and distinct contours of the raw quartz and features individually set crystal accents that exude the confident and alluring femininity signature to the Marchesa design.
