Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose Perfume Review

Another week of Roses! Rose Cheapies – 2019

Winter has left me feeling exceptionally “blah” this year so I’m basically trying to do anything that I think will remind that my feelings and this cold season are temporary. As a distraction, I did something I tell all of ya’ll not to do. I blind-bought perfumes. But, let me explain! I bought rose-centric perfumes from a discount site, all of them selling for under $25. That seems like less of a gamble, right? This week I will see if the blind-sniffing odds were

Grace Coddington

The Lipstick League – week of 2.26.18

Question of the Week: What’s the one skincare product you use year round?

I’ve also rediscovered that I like Aveda hair products and that I have some really nice perfumes that I should wear more

1970’s Fashion – Get the Makeup Look of Rita Lee

Rita Lee

I love Rita Lee. I love any woman that plays a theremin. Here’s my non-fussy simple early 1970’s makeup look inspired by Rita Lee here:

FACE: Rita’s freckles show through. I applied Lancôme Beinfait Multi-Vital Tinted Moisturizer in Sand for sheer coverage. I need more coverage under the eyes, so I applied Covergirl Simply Ageless Concealer in Corrector with my fingers.
