The Review: Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrup

Though what I should be doing is just making a good scrub from the salt and sugar in my kitchen, I was tempted to try the Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Scrub Available on Sephora.

Though the ingredients are all natural, the scent is appealing, and formula is surprisingly moisturizing, there wasn't enough grit in the formula to really give my lips the scrub it needed to remove some of the dead skin off of my lips or even a lot of caked lip gloss.

Love, as a lip treatment, but wouldn't go as far as to recommend it for a scrub.

Fall Faces: French Editor and Jazz-Age Beauty

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

It's practically September. Vacation is done and its back to school- the hustle and bustle of meetings, deadlines, work trips and work parties return. And for those of us who won't be doing the new school year shopping trip, a new look- a hairstyle or makeup look is just the thing to get you into the groove.

Two looks to consider for the fall?

First, the French editor (or for some of us still stuck there, the 90's), no-makeup look. Channel your inner Emmanuelle Alt or fresh-faced Gwyneth Paltrow and say good-bye to the super sculpted reality show celebrity face you have been giving. Fall, as you can see in the new Balmain ads (and Marc Jacobs ads and Balenciaga runway ads and...) is all about the clean face- as it should be! Besides the pendulum swinging from the extreme of super-waxed and redrawn eyebrows and hyper-contouring in the style of Emeli Sandé to the more natural side of things, its time for you to wipe off all the heavy bronzer and oil and let your tan fade. What better way to show up to work than fresh faced and ready to go? A natural, clean face - think matte coverage and concealer, thick mascara and just a hint of blush goes a long way.

Another look? Well if you makeup is something you absolutely must do dear, take a page from the Jazz-age as some other fashion houses have (see Givenchy) and do the bold lip- especially if you're like me and recently did a big chop. Focus the attention on your face and think dark lips and Salma Hayek's Frida (I'll let you decide on the eyebrows).

Either way, pick a look or alternate between the two and psych yourself up. It's time for Fall.
