Into the Darkness

For Storm Sandy & her little cold sister Storm Athena

Because they thought they could shut New York down
So I am here to let them know they can’t!
Almost 2 million New Yorkers were left without power following the arrival of Sandy a week and a half ago. Most of us from sopo* were trying to find a place to plug our devices in, take a shower, or even just a payphone without 10 people in line to use it.Listen up Sandy & Athena, New Yorker’s love dark, dark coffee, dark black out mascara (I prefer Diorshow Black Out Mascara), and most are often caught dressed pretty dark.So as we say goodbye to Nicolas Ghesquiere’s for Balenciaga… Let’s say goodbye to Sandy & Athena. 
Unlike Nicolas Ghesquiere, we aren’t hoping to see you again!

But until then, victims of the storms are still in need. Get out there and 

Doing good is the best beauty secret! 

  While in the midst of the chaos, don’t forget to take 15 minutes for yourself. It is hard with all of the things that have to be done.

Go Behind the Mirror, into the medicine cabinet, grab a bottle of lotion and slather!
(I prefer Fresh Brown Sugar Body Cream.)
Ain’t no Bitches going to take NYC down!
*sopo – south of power*

In Your Face

For Devin, 
Because I miss you
So here’s what you’re missing!

Mario Testino’s first U.S. exhibit opened last weekend at the Museum of Fine Art, Boston. 

“She didn’t have a mirror or anything in front of her, just a palette of makeup. I asked her to put her finger on the blue and touch her eye, then put her finger on the red and touch her mouth…
Being a fashion photographer, we deal with making people look the best they can, all the time, by enhancing their beauty. But this was about embracing the beauty inside of a person, to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It is her eyes and her gaze that control the image.” – Mario Testino

So Devin, while putting a finger on the blue and touching our eyes may not be the makeup application we are looking for, embracing the beauty inside us is always a great application!

Rock Stud Hero

For Kerry, 

Because she showed me the bedazzler
So I will show her a thing or two about spots!
Rhinestones, crystals, or metal studs, you can virtually make any kind of spots you want with a bedazzler. 
As was shown to me, the bedazzler can put any type of spot we desire on our clothes.
However Kerry, when it comes to our complexion we desire the opposite.

Just Add Water

For Marcie, 
Because she taught me how to make tea…
So I will teach her about a hair mask!
A lot of people already know how to do both, however some only know one or the other.
As I learned yesterday, the thing with tea is you just add hot water.
Well Marcie, as it turns out, a hair mask is pretty much the same concept…
