These Fresh and Luminous Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colors Don’t Have Time for Fine Lines

Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Colors in YE216 Lemoncello and BL620 Esmaralda, $25 each

Creative trick.

To start this post, I gazed at Shiseido’s $25 Shimmering Cream Eye Colors and asked myself, “Self, what are the first two words you think of when you look at these?”

And I answered…myself. I said, “fresh and luminous!”

See, the trick is to ask yourself questions when you can’t think of something to say. :)

Anywho!

These potted cream eyeshadows come in a bunch of colors that, gloriously, do not settle into my fine lines, and since they aren’t fully opaque, some of my natural skin color peeks through when I wear ‘em, which sort of gives them a casual effect like, “Yes, I did spend the day relaxing and reading on a sunny park bench.”

I like to wear Esmaralda (the teal one) or Lemoncello (the golden yellow) on top of NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. With Pro-Prime, I get 8-9 hours of wear.

You can find both of these shades, along with about a zillion others, now at Shiseido counters and online.

Any Time Is a Good Time for Bronzer With Guerlain Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder in 05 Sun Brunettes

Published in: Daily Beauty

Guerlain Terracotta Light in 05 Sun Brunettes

Around my house, bronzer usually comes up as a topic of conversation every spring and summer.

Of course, most of those conversations take place between a cat and myself, but let’s not get sidetracked. :)

Bronzer. Usually a spring/summer thing, but my love for it has no seasonal bounds.

Like, if we were attending the world’s largest fall/winter makeup convention, I would have packed four bronzers for the two-day trip. “Yeah, yeah, full coverage and berry lips,” I’d whine. “I’m bored. Let’s talk about bronzer.”

This pan o’ bronzing prettiness here is Guerlain’s Terracotta Light 05 Sun Brunettes ($52), and it creates the most gorgeous peachy golden tan.

It also has a light sheen that, together with the color, makes it look like sun-dappled skin.

Very pretty lightly dusted all over for some warmth.

In addition to 05 Sun Brunettes, there are three other shades in the family — 02 Blondes (with soft suntan tones), 03 Brunettes (rich bronze tones) and 04 Sun Blondes (bronzed pink and tan tones) — and their names are basically weak suggestions. In other words, you don’t have to be blonde to wear the blonde shade or brunette to wear the brunette shade. If you’re interested, you could try them all, and pick the one you like best.

They’re available now at Guerlain counters, Sephora and also online, too.

Pre-Emmys Shenanigans and a Dress Poll

Published in: Daily Beauty

It’s almost time! OMG. Two more sleeps ’til I leave for the Emmys with Dove in Los Angeles. I head down there on Sunday, and the show is Monday night.

Here are the two gowns I rented from Rent the Runway. It’s important that I see how they move and look in pics because, you know, the paparazzi from Crazy Cat Lady Weekly will be there, and I want to look my best. Obvs.

Yup, I said gowns. Plural. Because I also ordered a backup (hey, how many times does someone get to go to the Emmys?), a black mermaid silhouette dress by Monique Lhuillier, which I got in case the hot pink Badgley Mischka Fluorescent Chiffon Gown made me look like a rejected extra from Toddlers and Tiaras.

I’m barely five feet tall, so this is a legitimate concern.

Anywho, Tabs votes for the pink.

What do you think? (This is a non-binding poll. I can still wear whatever I want, and I’m leaning toward the pink.)

Which dress should I wear to the Emmys?

“Cat Enthusiast”

I got some basic business cards from Staples today just in case I run into Matthew McConaughey at the Emmys and he asks me for hair gel recommendations.

I’ll be all, “Matt, baby, here’s my card. Call me and we’ll talk.”

“Cat Enthusiast” is code for “crazy cat lady,” by the way, haha.

Eyes Go Au Naturel With the Bare Necessities in Sonia Kashuk’s New Eyeshadow Palette

Published in: Daily Beauty

Sonia Kashuk Bare Necessities Eyeshadow Palette (2)

Sometimes you run into an eyeshadow palette that you just know you’re going to be all over like a plus-size tabby on an open can of gravy.

That’s how I am about Sonia Kashuk’s new Eyeshadow Palette in Bare Necessities ($14.29).

It houses six nude powder eyeshadows, and get this — there are a couple of mattes, too, so it’s not just shimmer town as far as the eye can see.

I really like the color temps here. None of the colors are too warm or cool, so most gals (and dudes) should be able to rock ‘em.

Oh, and the palette? It’s only $14.29.

HOLLA! :)

Look for it at Target stores.
