Earlier this week, I was frantically working on getting our back patio ready for a photo shoot before the rain returned. I made three trips to the same nursery (no joke), planted 4 pots, cleaned and rearranged, made a cheese tray AND dinner — which left me all of ten minutes to get myself ready!! Pretty typical actually 😊
I quickly washed off the Giorgio Armani foundation that had been applied at 7am and dabbed on the Amorepacific Cushion Compact. I added Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. Lipstick, a little blush and a gloss … and finally started feeling kind of good! Radiant, if I do say so myself, thanks to the Amorepacific! Ironically, a while back the lady at the cosmetics counter told me I was sold the wrong shade (208), it was way too dark. Between being too lazy to switch it out and kind of liking the darker glow, I kept it anyway. And I’m so glad I did! Makes me look tan (even though I’m not)!

Amorepacific (and the cushion compact)
Glossier Boy Brow
I know, I know. EVERYONE is using Boy Brow right now, so I had to try it (brown). And … it’s amazing.
Charlotte tilbury lipsticks
These lipsticks are simply the best. (I own 7) My absolute faves are Bitch Perfect, Kim K.W.., Kidman’s Kiss and Pillowtalk. Did you know a Pillowtalk is sold every 30 seconds? Unbelievable! See my Charlotte Tilbury post here.
This is the only lip gloss I use. Period.
I wear the color “In Love.” It’s a peachy, universally flattering color. And I know this sounds weird, but it smells SO GOOD!
Vitamin C serum
Read my post here; we ALL need this!
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Perfume
Benefit High Beam
I’ve been wanting to use a liquid highlighter to accent my cheeks and brow bones, and a trusted friend told me about this one. I love it because it makes me look glowy.
I REALLY don’t need anymore lipsticks. At all. But, the same trusted friend told me about NARS Rosecliff, and I’m a sucker for lipstick so I bought it. It’s like a nude that’s not too brown – and I threw on this coppery Chanel gloss (#808) over it. I swear, it’s PERFECT!
Slip silk hair ties
The older I get, the more careful I am with my hair because I can’t afford to lose any hair 😂. I heard that Slip products are “anti-aging,” so I’m going to assume these hair ties are “anti-aging” too! 😂 They are made to be gentle on your delicate hair, which is why we all need them.
