New From Laura Mercier: High Coverage Concealer

I’m super stoked over the launch of Laura Mercier’s latest innovation – High Coverage Concealer ($28)! It will be available at all Laura Mercier counters starting tomorrow, April 1! Sure to be an instant addition to any morning makeup routine, this concealer helps to conceal under eye circles and fake a well-rested night of sleep {which makes it an instant win in my insomniactic life}.

This unique 3-in-1 concealer was designed to cover, de-puff and brighten under eye circles. The highly pigmented formula builds and blends flawlessly for professional makeup artist results that last all day. The concealer was formulated with honey, vitamin E and fruit acid to nourish and smooth skin, and comes in 12 shades, so you can find your perfect match.

Laura’s tip for application: Apply to under eye area using fingers in a patting motion. And a little goes a long way {which sounds perfect for your wallet}! Will you be picking one up?

Fab Friday Favorites: Hand Creams! (Fall Into Beauty)

Fab Friday Favorites: Hand Creams!

My hands have always been notoriously rough. It's just the way they are. But over time I have discovered that the right cream can make them look good and feel smooth {even if not quite soft}. Plus, regular use of hand cream is sort of important if you plan on taking pictures of pretty polishes on your nails from time to time {which I am wont to do about once a week, usually on Mondays :) }. These are a few of my tried and trues - conveniently separated into drugstore and luxury categories, plus two that I'm dying to get my hands on {particularly because I've tried other products from the brands that are just FANTASTIC}! {Products that were sent for consideration will be noted with {c/o} }

Michelle Dockery {or Lady Mary Crawley to us Downton Abbey fans} attended last night's 2013 Emmy Awards as a nominee for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series. Makeup artist Jordan Long was inspired by a series of stunning watercolors painted by the artist David Downton {some irony in that name, huh?} in the January 2013 issue of Vanity Fair. In order to complement the classic femininity and clean lines of Dockery’s custom made Prada gown, Long used Laura Mercier cosmetics to keep her makeup very minimal, focusing on her glowing skin and strong brows.
