October 2009 Archives


At the L’Oreal Paris Color of Hope event, we thought Kerry Washington’s eye makeup really stood out— in a good way. With gorgeous, indigo-liner and shadow, her eyes sparkled even more. Color is a great way to bring focus to your eyes, and you can do it with eyeshadows, liners, or a combo of both.

Tip: If you’re wearing a bold shade on your eyes, add a sheer wash of bright color to your cheeks so you won’t look washed-out.

Here are two products by L’Oreal we recommend to help you recreate the look:




Wear Infinite Single Eyeshadow in Midnight Sky— $4.48,








HIP Eye Liner Pencil in Navy— $8.49,



We always welcome the opportunity to pamper ourselves. With Lisa Hoffman’s Bath Soak, we take advantage as often as we can. Pouring a bit of this into a bath not only pampers, but offers nourishment, rejuvenation and moisture for our skin. Did we mention the smell? This award-winner is nothing short of amazing— with notes or Jasmine, Orange and Bergamot, our skin is always left smelling fabulous. $23.95,
