SPF-Beauty-Products

I like to think of myself as a smart person, usually, but we all have our moments. One of mine was on Sunday, when my friends and I got so excited about the first truly warm, sunny weekend of the season that we went to Prospect Park to people-watch (and dog-watch).

Anyone who’s ever tried to use a box clutch knows that it requires some sacrifices. Your wallet, your sunglasses, your makeup bag, your office keys–things gotta go. If you’re into storing things externally, though, Tom Ford may have a solution, at least for your lipstick.

Bright-Lip-Products-for-Spring

One of the simplest and best ways to feel brighter, sunnier and renewed for spring is with a bright lip color. Or, at least, that’s what it always feels like in the beginning, when you’re picking out a new shade of lipstick in your favorite beauty department.

Spring-2015-Nail-Polishes

When I wrote about pastel spring bags last week, you guys were pretty much in agreement–the colors are just so nice to look at, so clean and feminine. An expensive, ultra-light purchase isn’t the best avenue for everyone, though, especially if you tend to be hard on your bags or wear a lot of black.

Five-Perfect-Brow-Products

If you’ll allow me to brag for a moment, I would like to tell you that I have really good, natural-looking eyebrows. They’re not good in the super-shaded, airbrushed-looking, Instagram makeup artist sort of way; instead, they look like they may have grown out of my face.

Spring-Lipstick

Even though it’s still chilly in the mornings (and I wiped out on some black ice on the way to work yesterday morning), there’s no denying it–spring is almost here. Even though sweaters and jackets are still going to be a part of our everyday wardrobes for the next few weeks, there’s one surefire way to bring a little bit of spring sunshine into our outfits immediately: lipstick and lipgloss.

Best-Moisturizing-Beauty-Products

I’ve always had dry skin and hair, so moisturizing is a task that’s been on my mind since approximately the 7th grade. My obsession with it only got more intense when I moved to New York from Atlanta; the winters here are dryer, longer and more punishing than the ones I was used to in my hometown.

Christian Louboutin Starlight Limited Editional Nail Polish

One of the best things about working at PurseBlog is getting to bounce ideas, stories and opinions off of my coworkers on a daily basis. We’re a tight-knit group, and we all have very distinctive tastes and viewpoints on fashion, style and shopping.

Beauty Gift Guide 2014

Beauty gifts are some of my favorites, both to receive and to shop for. During the holiday shopping season, beauty brands pull out all the stops and put together boxed sets that include some of their most popular products, often at a net discount to buyers.

Winter Hair Moisture

If I can be unguarded for a moment (and I feel like this is a place of honesty), I’d like to admit that I spend a lot of time thinking about my hair. I always have. It’s naturally curly, fine and thin, but I come from a region where a woman’s hair should be her perfectly coiffed crowning glory, so I’ve spent my entire life changing its color and learning how to make it do whatever I want.
