As you all know, or don’t know – I’m a cosmetic and luxury skin care junkie. I love everything about this time of year, except – dry skin and dull make up. I want to share a few of my favorite skin care items and other luxuries , well 15 to be exact that you’ll fall in love with to.
Working in luxury for many years, I’ve learned a few things about what works and what doesn’t. We all spend tons of money on the latest gimmicks and falsely advertised products, that end up with a drawer or bin full of hopeless promises. Instead of hitting your local cosmetic mega store and getting overwhelmed by the bright lights and crowded aisles, I’ll give you my top picks and why I LOVE these items so much. Most of these products can be found at your luxury retailers and online stores. I love shopping at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus for a few and Sephora for others.
If you abused your skin during the summer, by over tanning or just partying too much – rejuvenate your skin and take it easy this winter. If you’re getting ready for your wedding or a special event, start now, most skin care products take about 4 months until you see results. Rome wasn’t built in a day people!
Here are my Top picks and why:
Starting from left to right top to bottom:
Kevin Aucoin – Sculpting powder – Gives you the illusion that you have a chiseled jawline like Kim K. and J.Lo.
Chanel – Le Weekend – You abused your skin during the week from your stressful job, not enough sleep and dehydration. You use this product twice a month only and you eliminate your other skincare items.
Diptyque – Feu de Bois Candle – seriously it smells like burning firewood, enough said!
AmorePacific – Cushion Compact – I’m not a foundation person but this healthy glow compact offers SPF 50 with light color. Perfect for a fresh face look.
La Mer – Revitalizing Mask – If your skin is feeling a bit dehydrated and you need an extra boost. This mask also tightens and brightens your skin at the same time.
MAC – Viva Glam Rihanna Red – It’s the perfect red with a hint of gold shimmer. Your doing good as proceeds go to AIDS research.
Tom Ford – Tuscan Leather Cologne – Once again, the sexiest fragrance and its unisex. If Drake loves it, well, I love it too:)
Nars – Orgasm Blush – It’s the perfect once size fits all blush. Anyone can wear it !” Ang what blush are you wearing – Orgasm”.
Lancome – Genefique – It’s a Youth activating serum that can be worn with other serums. I can’t live without it.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Brow Wiz – The easiest and quickest way to shape your brows when you don’t have any.
Trish McEvoy – Instant Eye Lift – This is another must have and I carry it in my bag all the time. It contains hyaluronic acid so it hydrates and it brightens. Create the triangle of light and your good to go.
Kevin Aucoin – Celestial Bronzer – I love this bronzer because of the light reflectors in it. I pair with the sculpting powder to give a contoured look.
Alterna Caviar – CC 10 – This is the band-aid product that repairs all damage you’ve done to your hair.
AmorePacific – Time Response Eye Cream – OBSESSED with this eye cream, tackles all 5 signs of aging around the eye area – I’m a believer and it works.
Lancome – Grandiose Mascara – The only swan like wand that makes your lashes look like extensions. I wear mine with the matching primer.
xo, and happy shopping:)
