Face, cheeks + fragrance.
  • *Becca Apres Ski Palette: With six glowing shades (from bronzer to highlighter), this chic palette accurately captures the rosy effect of icy wind on the face for a healthy and glowing flush.
  • *Hourglass Illume Trio Palette: I don’t know why it took me so long to try this cream triad; with a lush, true brown bronzer, rosy coral blush and gossamer light illuminator, this palette creates ethereally pretty skin in seconds.
  • *Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light (reviewed HERE): I am on compact #3 of this particular shade. It imparts a brilliant balance of warm tan and luminous champagne hues for skin that looks blessed by the sun.
  • *Vita Liberata Pressed Self Tanning Bronzing Minerals: Fascinating on every level, this bronzer actually offers long-term effects, harnessing the power of low doses of self tanner for a more committed contour. It’s genius!
  • *Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Mars (reviewed HERE): One swipe across the cheekbones bathes skin in a flattering, peachy glow…truly lovely.
  • *Surratt Beauty Artistique Cheek Brush and *Surratt Beauty Artistique Highlight Brush (reviewed HERE): These two brushes get used on my face every. single. day. Well worth the investment, they are super soft and blend powder products to a fever-pitch of perfection.
  • *Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder: I am new to this radiant powder but am so happy to have discovered it! The finely milled formula is a marvelous combination of subtle illumination and sheer coverage for skin that looks touched by the tender glow of a candle
  • Tom Ford Sheer Highlighting Duo in Reflects Gilt (reviewed HERE): It’s no secret that I am utterly devoted to this particular highlighter…I am on compact #2 and use it nearly every single day. I will be picking up a backup during the sale.
  • Ralph Lauren Woman: A confident floral with a woodsy dry down this sparkling fragrance is anchored by a self-assured sense of sensuality. It will resonate well with the cooler months ahead and I cannot wait to integrate it into my regular fragrance wardrobe.
  • *Kevyn Aucoin Neo-Trio Palette (reviewed HERE): Portable and versatile, the sale is the right time to pick up this magnetic palette of possibility; with bronzer, blush, highlighter and setting powder, the customization potential is endless.

  • *Natasha Denona Lila Palette (reviewed HERE): Breathtaking on every level, this color-saturated palette is replete with rosy and violet tones in a spectrum of satins and mattes. It is–without question–my favorite ND palette to date.
  • *Becca Apres Ski Eye Lights Palette: This clever circular palette makes a befitting gift for an ardent beauty lover in your life. With seven luminous shades that blend harmoniously, it’s  excellent for an effortless “no makeup makeup” look.
  • *Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette in Scandalust (reviewed HERE): If I had to have one Marc Jacobs palette for life, it would be the rosy-neutral toned Scandalust…every time I wear it, someone asks me what’s on my eyes. In a word, it’s exceptional.
  • *Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Top Coat (reviewed HERE): I am completely smitten with this revolutionary new formula that feels like a cream while performing like a weightless veil of waterproof luminosity. Start with Peach and you’ll want to add Nude and Bronze to the mix in no time flat.
  • *Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara (reviewed HERE): I’ve loved this mascara for years and recently rediscovered it; two coats and lashes are fluffy and long!
  • *Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Liquid Eye Liner: One sweep across the lid and an indelible cat eye is born…the liner is smooth and long-wearing.
  • *Benefit Ka-Brow #3 (reviewed HERE): Creamy and pigmented, this lush formula (with its own built-in brush) builds depth and fills in sparse areas; #3 is splendid for dark ash brown brows like mine.
  • *Benefit 3D Brow Tones (reviewed HERE): This clever brow mascara possesses a light-capturing technique that adds flattering dimension to the brows while also imparting volume, polish and hold.
