I always mention how my beauty addiction is on another level. Name a product or a brand and I have a tried it and can give you a complete breakdown on the pros & cons, the longevity, the pigmentation, etc. The best part of trying a rotation of new products is going back to old favorites. Within my beauty wardrobe (I will have to show you some day), I had a few spare beauty blenders that were being unused. I had just been on a shoot where the makeup artist had used one and I loved the look of the foundation, so I decided to break mine out again. Now I cannot imagine my makeup routine without them! They really give the most natural, but polished look to the skin. After dampening and ringing out the excess water, I tap into my foundation (currently: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation) and stipple all over the skin. Skin looks dewy and fresh. Next on my list: Beautyblender has just introduced their micro mini sponges for concealing under the eye, highlighting, and contouring.
It is officially Fall fashion season, but when the temperature has been 90 degrees plus for the last week, cozy sweaters and heavy layers are hard to imagine. I always look forward to earthy, autumnal shades in cognac browns, cranberries, and olive greens, but lately all I see is an abyss of denim cut offs and airy crop tops. In the meantime, I will just have to pretend until things cool off.

I am having some serious lust-worthy moments over some of these wishlist items, those shoes-- are you kidding me? Showstoppers. I am not one who often dons red, but lately I have been drawn to this bright tomato shade especially in the version of this Vince coat, layered over that chic black jumpsuit, it is an unstoppable combo. I always love a warm nude makeup look to transition from summer to fall, so the new Bobbi Brown palette and Chanel blush look perfect for holding onto the last remnants of a golden tan.
You know you are a beauty addict when at 10 years old you are determined to find the exact peachy-pink lipstick shade Audrey Hepburn applies in the famous Breakfast at Tiffany's taxi scene. I have always been obsessed with makeup in film from Catherine Deneuve's bedroom eyes in Belle Du Jour to Grace Kelly's gleaming skin in To Catch a Thief. That is why I love Vogue's article this week naming the most iconic lipstick moments in film.
