Laura Mercier Star Dust Loose Setting Powder

A jar of this pixie dust :) is around $20.00 and really helps to bronze the skin.
I use it around the outer portion of my face, a little on the cheeks and all over my neck and chest.
A killer product to use for a night out, a tropical vacation and for all you brides and bridesmaids!
Just use a fluffy brush and tap out any extra then dust over the desired areas.
It gives such a healthy look and adds some sparkle too.
Have fun with it but not too much fun.  A little goes a long way!

Lumene Crystal Radiance Skin Tone Perfector

Yes, I'm a huge Lumene fan. And the fact that you can get the line @ CVS Pharmacy is even better!
Around $12.00 for this 1 oz tube, it really illuminates the skin.
I mix a small pea size with my moisturizer in the day time when I'm a little broken out and it helps to reflect the light and even out the redness.
I recommend that anyone who has some "pock-mark" acne scars and/or  hyper-pigmentation use this to illuminate and help to erase the marks especially for photos & special events.

Elizabeth Arden Lip Talkers in Sugar Plum

A smooth lip color and liner all in a stick.  It's a fatter pencil and easy to line with too.
Around $10.00 and lasts a very long time.  Wears a long time too on the lips but it's not a stain.
I enjoy the color because it's matte and natural looking.
I sometimes apply a clear gloss over it if I want a little shine.
This is a universal color that most people can wear.  Beautiful.

Tweezerman slanted tweezers

This product is a bargain(at $20.00) especially when it comes with a lifetime warranty and lifetime free sharpening!
You can purchase at or even Bed Bath and Beyond!
A good rule of thumb is to not over tweeze and only clean up in between brows, above and below the brow line.  We tend to get a thinner left brow if we're right handed and vice-versa.  So leave them alone.  The fuller the brow, the younger we look.
This is the only brand of tweezers that I use.  Durable, well-made and easy to use.
Won't you join in tomorrow?

Bonne Bell eye style shadow box in cafe classics

4 different shades for just $5.00!
I love these colors for blue eyes.
I apply the darkest color in the crease and eye line for a more dramatic or evening look.
The matte beige color I'll apply over my entire lid for a natural look.
The shimmery beige is for the lid in between the crease and eye line.
The lightest of course is for just under the brow to highlight.
But there really aren't rules anymore so go have fun.

L'Occitane Fondant Vanille Lip Gloss

Before this apothecary opened in the US, I saw one on just about every corner while living Paris, France.  L'Occitane really does have some unique finds.
One of which is this little pot of lip yum-yum.
A hint of copper/brown and looks so soft and dewy on the levres.
I apply it with my fingertip and se tu, that's it.
A little bit sticky but still terrific on.  Loaded with shea butter and vit e-super moisturizers.
I usually wear it during the day with light makeup application.
A .17oz  pot runs about $8.00.  Oh and while your there, see if they still sell the glorious "olive oil facial cleanser"-a dry skin treat indeed.

Fleurs D'Oranger (Eau De Parfum) by Serge Lutens, Paris

An incredible scent that I almost hate to talk about.
Around $100.00 on Amazon for 1.69 oz.
Fresh, sexy, youthful and yet subtle, this fragrance makes me feel sooooooooo beautiful.
With a touch of orange flower and musk, I can wear it day or night.
One spray down the back of my neck and viola!
This line has more scents to choose from.
You will not be disappointed.
