Calvin Klein’s Fall/Winter 2018 installment of its Our Family. #MyCalvins campaign follows Paris JacksonMillie Bobby Brown, and Lulu Tenney, who have taken the reigns from the Kardashian-Jenner clan.  This second iteration of Our Family, shot by Willy Vanderperre, channels Raf Simons’ Americana and focuses on unity among its stars, calling them “a kaleidoscopic vision of America, and of family: singular, universal, and enduring.”

Soap & Glory is launching its More Than Lips campaign to remind women everywhere that whatever their shade of gloss, they can, and should, always share their voice Like A Boss. Soap & Glory was inspired to create a safe space for brave women everywhere who are finding the courage to share their stories, say what is on their minds and proudly showcase their own unique beauty.

More Than Lips turns the tables on society’s outdated biases that judge women purely on their appearance. Soap & Glory is flipping this narrative on its head by encouraging women to play up their pouts, using their favorite Soap & Glory lip color, while they share their honest, uncensored thoughts and feelings about what it means to be a woman today.

AGE:  33
PHILOSOPHY: Take good care of your skin.
AM BEAUTY ROUTINE:   Rinse face with water, apply Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 25, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush or MAC, MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as an eye shadow base, eye shadow (usually MAC, Pat McGrath, or Urban Decay), Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes! 4-In-1 Mascara, and a lipstick or gloss from my (probably too big!) collection. My favorite lipstick brands are MAC, Pat McGrath, Chanel and Rimmel London.
PM BEAUTY ROUTINE:  Wash face with Nubian Heritage African Black Soap and a few drops of pure Argan oil before Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Dew It All Eye Gel and MD Complete Wrinkle and Radiance Remedy every night (which I found through Beauty Undercover! It has Retinol and Vitamin C). Over that I use Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Hyaluronic Essence, and either Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C Sleeping Cream or First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. A few times a week I exfoliate with Lumene Kirkas Glow Reveal 60 Second Facial and a clay mask mixed with water and honey once or twice a month for a really deep clean. I moisturize my hands and feet with coconut oil every night.
CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT PRODUCT:  Lumene skin care products – they have completely changed my skin for the better!
MOST EXPENSIVE PRODUCT:  Pat McGrath kits, like the Metalmorphosis 005 Everything Kit. It’s a splurge but the quality and pigmentation of every product is so good!
BEST BARGAIN PRODUCT:  Rimmel London Lipsticks.
 FAVORITE BEAUTY TOOL:  Zoeva Makeup Artist Brush Set (25 brushes). I’ve had these brushes for over 2 years and they still look and work the same as the day I got them. Quality brushes are a good investment.
COMMENTS: You can never have too many lipsticks!
