On October 2nd, CHANEL’s Ready-To-Wear Spring/Summer 2019 Collection was a show unlike anything seen before, with the House’s venue of choice, Le Grand Palais (Paris) transformed into an extravagant “C-side” beach resort, complete with cabanas, loungers, a lifeguard … and real lapping waves, no less. The scope of this accomplishment is matched only by M. Lagerfeld’s limitless creativity and what’s more, even the models all seemed in a joyous mood; I guess having one’s feet in the sand versus wearing uncomfortable heels will have that effect. And while the clothing was all swoon-worthy — not to mention totally relatable, I was personally transfixed by the makeup look Lucia Pica created: effortless beach glam, is what I’m calling it.
One of the latest arrivals from Pixi Beauty, this Glow In A Box is truly well named, as the products it contained were [probably] designed to get you holiday ready … or maybe even visible from space, yes? Sure, everything here is utterly brilliant & sparkly and yet somehow against all odds, these products are also totally wearable. And since there really aren’t any beauty rules, who says you can’t wear shimmer during the daytime — or anytime you’re totally feeling it?
Several weeks ago I was invited to discover a new (to me) skincare range, OSEA Malibu, where I sat down for an intimate chat with the founder’s son, David Denberg. In truth, I’m always excited to learn about products that can have a positive impact — especially where my skin is concerned, and it was also a pleasant surprise to learn first-hand how this unique brand came about. Then again, the fact that its very name conjures up images of the ocean, probably would have won me over anyway …
How does one capture the scent of “joy” or that of any emotion, for that matter? Well, if you’re Dior’s master perfumer François Demachy, you tap into your inner feelings, play with a bounty of ingredients, add spokesperson Jennifer Lawrence into the mix, et voilà: Joy Eau de Parfum is born. Ok, so obviously there’s so much more to it than that, but doesn’t my version sound like fun?
Today my blog is celebrating it’s 8th birthday and I even though I have several special things coming up to commemorate this milestone, I thought I’d get down & dirty first … the beauty way, of course. Just when I thought that Urban Decay had taken the whole “Naked” theme as far as it would go, along comes this latest Naked Cherry Collection to prove me wrong. I also happen to have a major weakness for red/berry hues — in particular eye shadows — and from the minute I saw this palette, I just knew it would sit right in my wheelhouse. In case you’re wondering, I was right. So, so right.
