BEAUTY PHILOSOPHY: Take time to care for your skin … it is precious!! The effort is worth it!
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE: Cleanse, moisturize, and protect! Right now, I am using philosophy everything for my facial routine … Purity Made Simple cleanser, Time in a Bottle Serum, Hope In A Jar moisturizer.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE: Exfoliate and use a night moisturizer (Hope In A Jar Night). Once a week, I use a facial mask (usually on a Friday while I enjoy a glass of wine!) I am loving GlamGlow masks and ExfoliKate Exfoliating Treatment.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT: Julep Best Pedi Creme Ever foot creme … I love doing my own pedicures. I’m kind of a perfectionist so mine are usually better than the ones that I would pay for … definitely not as pampering, but way better in terms of quality!
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT COSMETIC: BareMinerals BareSkin … I l-o-v-e this stuff! It covers imperfections, is silky, and looks like I’m wearing nothing on my skin!
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT: Tom Ford perfume — I love them all!!!
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT: Revlon nail files
FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL: My Clarisonic Aria
COMMENTS: I am a beauty and hair product junkie! I love trying new things. I really, really love Beauty Undercover and the opportunities to try products I otherwise might not have … such as the PMD Personal Microderm System. That product is awesome by the way. I think that’s my favorite score to date!

GAGA IS THE LATEST TO CHANNEL BETTIE PAGE
Is anything new these days? It seems that Lady Gaga (left) stepped out this week, sporting the “micro-bang” (aka “suicide roll”), a hairstyle originally made popular by the 1950′s pinup star, Bettie Page (lower right). She follows Beyoncé (right), who debuted her new fringe last week in London. The look is anything but new. In May, Madonna and Katy Perry graced the cover of V Magazine (lower left) with a similar look. But celebrity stylist, Ray Salazar, cautions those attempting to emulate, “It’s not a very realistic every-day hairstyle that most women can wear.” He suggests first playing with a clip-in hair piece or rolling your own bangs to create a similar effect.
British import, Charlotte Tilbury, welcomed both celebrities and carnies alike, as she and Nordstrom hosted the circus-inspired Makeup Your Destiny Beauty Festival Thursday night. Celebrity friends, Kim Kardashian, Liberty Ross, Cat Deeley, and Lily Allen supported the international makeup artist, whose A-list clientele includes Kate Moss, Penelope Cruz, Rihanna, and Sienna Miller. The Hollywood event celebrated Nordstrom‘s partnership with Tilbury, whose eponymous makeup revolution features both skincare (the Magic Cream is a standout!) and cosmetics. The line is specifically designed to give women the tools they need to create a multitude of beautiful looks.
