Lately, I’ve been relying on three current cleanser MVP’s, Votary, Natura Bissé and Avène with the first two for facial cleansing and the third item for eye makeup removal. Your facial cleanser should do three key things, remove dirt, sebum and makeup without stripping your skin of its natural oils and disrupting your skin’s natural...Continue Reading

No, you don’t have to buy new makeup all the time but I do have to let you in on the makeup I’m in love with ATM (at the moment). Mind you, many of these items aren’t new on the scene, such as Tom Ford’s Shade and Illuminate palette which has been around since at…

But instead of offering you a gift guide, I’m sharing my experience with Frédéric Malle Musc Ravageur Body and Hair Oil . I’ve been under the spell of this oil for about two months now, learning its…
