So in love with Prestige's eye shadow called "Love". The first thing I thought of was to use it as a blush highlighter. When applied, looks more like blush with highligher. In closer examination, the pigment is really profound, so little product is necessary, much like the NARS blushes. I like richly pigmented products because obviously they last a long time, on your skin and in the pots. Love is a lovely shade of pink with lots of iridescence. I love the packaging too, snaps closed, simple.

I am loving the Dior Fall 2008 collection/looks. I have been wearing big and full hair styles for the past two years, and I love it! I feel very Bridget Bardot. I love pairing huge hair with dramatic makeup, and over-sized jewels, these looks spell 1960's GLAMOUR to me! Here's my look and the ones of the Dior runway/backstage! I especially love Magdalena Frackowiak, she's one of my favorite models.

These products are absolutely essential in my styling routine. I wouldn't do a thing to my hair without these products to prep and protect. After cleansing my hair, I towel dry, apply a quarter size amount of the Blow Down Extreme Creme by Matrix throughout, then subsequently apply 4 pumps of the amazing Super Skinny Serum by Paul Mitchell throughout to add some shine, bonus: smells like watermelon, yum! These two work great together for me, and when hair is dried and curled or flat ironed straight, you can't feel them in your hair, just feels like silk.

So I visited a 24 hour CVS on Ventura Blvd tonight to get my ever sought after liquid eyeliner from Almay! I am happy to report that they had a buy one get one free special on it, yay! I am so in love with this product, I have been wearing it for the past 10 years. I love everything from the packaging, the applicator is amazing and well designed, and the best parts are that it's still on the market, and they've revamped the formula a few years ago to where there's barely any fallout or smudging, even by day's end. It's not waterproof, but I am ok with that, I much prefer non-waterproof eye products as they are often times difficult to remove. I couldn't rave about this product more, I LOVE ALMAY LIQUID EYELINER! :)

Fall is here! It's one of my favorite seasons, it means new beginnings to me as the leaves are changing. With that said, I love nothing more than a really clean face for fall. That's not to say I don't love to indulge in a little drama for the evening, but how wonderful is this Chanel Fall/08 look for the day time? I even love the hair, I have been wearing bobby pins in my hair for a long time now, probably a year, pinning my bangs to the side when I don't feel like styling or dealing with them. It's great for work and play. This is my ideal look as I love to play up my eyes (I love smokey eyes), with sheer pink glossy lips and rosy-pink cheeks complete the angelic look!
