Our favorite makeup artist, the inimitable Nam Vo, stopped by this afternoon. Not only did she come bearing red velvet twinkies from Lulu Cake (unreal), but she also gave us a few impromptu makeup tips. To Meredith: “Remember, your eyebrows are sisters, not twins. Let them each have their own shape.” She also rummaged through all the various products on my desk and picked out her favorites.
YSL Rouge Volupte Provocative Pink: I love this. It’s a hot tamale.
Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Golden Retriever: This is so pigmented. The gilded bronze is perfect for hazel and green eyes.
Ling Skincare Ginseng Therapy Moisture Mask: I go to Carol at Ling’s for my facials. She does all the models and she’s amaaaazing.
By Terry Gloss Delectation in Mandarina: Full pigment - this is beautiful. I’d wear this with a wash of champagne shadow on my eyelid - very springy, summer.
Pangea Balancing Oil: When I was younger I would always look for things that were oil-free. Now that I’m a little bit older I’m all about oils. So good for your skin!
Dr. Gross All-in-One Cleanser with Toner: My roommate actually works for Dr. Gross so I get to try everything — so lucky. This is my favorite face wash because it’s gentle and makes my skin feel moisturized after.
