You gotta keep em separated.
People are always asking how to create a truly separated lash look and honestly, I have no clue! Do you?

I’m really proud to say I’m the exclusive 103138194th person to post this photo.
This picture makes me want to wear lip color
and steal a brown contact from the optician … they always leave me alone in there anyway. But here is my deal - I’m kind of afraid of lipstick. I feel like I need to check in the mirror every 30 seconds when I have it on in case it’s moved off my mouth in a clown-like fashion. Also, do you guys actually have lip liner to match all your different lipsticks? Do people do that?
This extra-big rubberized pencil has its own sharpener, and the formula is super minty … it’s very tempting to use it as a lip balm although the consistency is harder. It creates a feather-proof outer lip line and a longwear base for lipstick - so easy, I really don’t know where this thing was heretofore?
Anyway, it’s here now! Check it out with your own uniformly colored eyes ->

My ultimate fashion icon - Brigitte Bardot epitomizes the sex appeal and glamour of the 1960s. Such a bombshell! I mean blonde, big hair, big eyes, big lashes – need I say more? Seriously mah-jor.
In honor of the cherry blossoms that seem to be everywhere in NYC right now (when I look out my 9th floor window in the afternoon, it looks like it’s snowing … blowing by in the wind!) …

SPRING! It’s a mood thing.
I’m curious … if you had to pick ONE color to wear on your nails through Spring/Summer this year, what would it be?
So bear with me, I promise it will make sense in a sec: I dislike drinking water, unless it is an exact temperature and taste experience - not too cold, obviously not warm … thirst-quenching yet virtually without sensory quality … so that you barely experience it going down. This is a similar feeling to going outside when it’s ~74 degrees and you can feel no warmth nor chill on your body. Do you know what I mean? Perfection.
If you have any issues wearing fragrance - if it gives you a headache, you can’t find the right balance between smell-able and subtle, or you just get sick of smelling yourself, I have found 74 degree delicious water for you, aka THE ANSWER.
I went to the Arquiste launch at Aedes de Venustas (cult fragrance shop - go there) a few weeks ago and kind of missed this, I was too distracted by their Fleur de Louis scent (my husband’s name) … then Flor y Canto showed up at my house in sample form.
This is described as an opulent floral which gives me a headache just to think about … but don’t be confused. There is something so amazingly fresh and pure about this white floral scent, it’s like taking a shower in gardenia-infused water.
I know a scent is great when I put it on alone in my house just to smell it; when I want to put it on before I go to bed even though believe me no one in the bed cares.
If you’ve been seeking a flawless floral scent for summer or ever, co-sign x 1000.
Does this: Refreshingly beautiful, light but opulent white floral with Mexican Tuberose, Magnolia, Plumeria + Marigold
Is this: Arquiste Flor y Canto Eau de Parfum
