Something for after sun

My favorite place to be is on the beach. Or as we say in Jersey, down the shore. I love the feel of the hot sand under my feet (and the giddy way I feel running towards the water to lessen the burn on my soles), the sound of the waves crashing, scrambling to move …

Great tips from Allure!

Was perusing the web for news and saw this article from Allure about using makeup to accentuate the positives as your skin ages… it’s kinda a how-to on how not to call out your crow’s feet and thin lips! http://tiny.cc/yI3Gj I especially like the feathering lipstick tip!

MAC Pro longwear lip color

I have tried tons of long-wearing lip colors and pretty much all of them but L’Oreal’s has disappointed me. But I never expected that MAC’s would disappoint me, too.

Help! I’m melting!

In the dirty Jerz we’re having quite a heat wave – in the 90s since Saturday!! My first thought – aside from oh-my-God-it’s-skin-bearing-weather-ALREADY?! – is hmm. How do I keep my makeup from melting off my face?! Moisturizer I’ve been using two moisturizers in winter to help keep my skin hydrated. Prior to the Clinique …
