A lot of people ask me about skin care and what I use on my own skin. The biggest piece of skin care advice I can give is what you put into your body is more important than what you put on it. (Though that’s important too.) the more carbs, sweets, soda, alcohol etc you consume the worse your skin will be. Sugar and processed foods aren’t doing your skin any good. Eat tons of fresh vegetables and drink a lot of water. As for what I use on my skin, I use only natural or organic skincare because I’m pretty afraid of the chemicals in commercial products. I wash my face with a Clairsonic and use Miessence products, as well as Jurlique JoJoba oil.
Time lapse lips regram from @chroniclebooks. For a perfect red lip start by lining the lips. Then shade with the lip pencil so it blends into your lipstick and you don’t have a harsh line. Next apply your lipstick. Finish by going back in to clean up the edges with your lip liner. I used NARS liner in Jungle Red and lipstick in Annabella.
regram of @chroniclebooks from last night’s event at @tumblr. I walked some of the ladies through one of the Halloween looks in The Daily Face - the Cracked China Doll. Though I was there for moral support, they did this makeup totally themselves. Big thanks to @maccosmetics for supplying the products!
You may know lovely annamarie already. We’re so excited about her book, The Daily Face, that we asked her to curate a collection of her makeup must-haves. Enter for a chance to win a copy of the book along with Annamarie’s must-have makeup items.
My fourth post for @chroniclebooks includes my very serious thoughts about beauty which rarely come out on my very unserious Instagram feed: I love clothes and have quite a healthy collection of vintage clothing. What I love about beauty is its inextricable link to fashion. Beauty is about creating an entire look with your face and your clothes. It’s doesn’t matter where your clothes are from or how expensive they are, a look is about creating a mood and living in that look, that mood with purpose. Here is one of my favorite vintage finds from the 1970’s.
