Get Glowing.

Bronzer makes me nervous. Back in college, I abused it a bit… and when I look back at old photos, I see an oompa loompa looking back at me. Alas, as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten a little bit better with using a lighter touch – resulting in a look that is more glowy and “sun-kissed” than ummm… “sun-drenched.” Applying bronzer should be all about adding warmth + radiance to the skin and enhancing your natural complexion to bring out your inner glow.

Drugstore Beauty: Keep it Simple.

If you’re anything like me, the change of seasons can wreak havoc on your skin. My skin has a tendency to get really dry — and because it’s sensitive… really red.

The Five Best Eye Creams.

Let’s talk about eye cream, shall we? You need one. I’ve always used eye cream religiously as I get (bad) bags under my eyes when I’m tired, and I always have dark circles (even when I’m my most rested.) But here’s the thing.

A Love Affair: SK-II Treatment Essence.

If there is one product I’ve gotten all of my close girlfriends hooked on (besides Tata Harper duh), it’s SK-II Treatment Essence. Guys. This product will change your life. I’ve written about it here before and I don’t mean to be boring/beat it to death, but I got a bottle for my cousin as a 27th birthday gift and while I was gushing to her about how it would change her life, I realized that I hadn’t told the whole SK-II story over here before… so I thought I would do that today.
