Margot Tenenbaum, My Movie Character Beauty Inspiration: Guest Blogger

We’re big fans of this week’s guest blogger, Natalie Higdon. Not only is she a Tennessee resident and a connoisseur of all things Memphis; she’s also a contributor to the Birchbox magazine! (Don’t miss her stellar article on 5 Surprising Facts About SPF). This week, she interviews a hot new singer, reveals her favorite two-in-one products, and schools us on how to trim our own bangs.  

Margot Tenenbaum, from Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums, is one of my favorite chain-smoking, compulsive lying characters ever. She’s also my No. 1 pick for my Halloween costume this year. While I look for a full-length faux fur coat, check out my makeup picks to get her look (cigarettes and wooden finger not included):

Apply heavily around both eyes. Practice your “I’m so bored with this” stare.

Nam Vo Stops By, Dissects My Desk

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.
