Older Girl Beauty


Meredith and I and the Asian Haul

This year I was lucky enough to have my good friend, (*and brain sharer), Meredith from Retrodiva’s Beauty move down to Dallas, which is only 3hrs away from me. This means I get to see her more often, and we get to discover all kinds of things in Big D.

This time we went Asian goodie shopping, including a trip to Daiso, which is like an Asian dollar store, on the rec of G, from Nouveau Cheap, whose rec’s I can take to the bank without hesitation. Then we also went over to TonyMoly, which you may recognize from seeing it at Urban Outfitters, and picked up some skincare stuff, too.

And we spend a lot of time telling you about what we got, because we talk a lot. Which we do when we are together, so, go get you a cup of something good and settle in for a sit, while we show you what we picked up, and talk about whatever comes up.

A Boring Week of Changes – Older Girl Beauty

This week was a typical week – work, school, sleep – with just a couple of big changes. The biggest for me was that I had my hair cut off. This is my Before/After, to see how much of a change the haircut made: IMG_5144

And, yeah, the after is all nice and straight, but, like anytime you go to the salon, it will not look like that after you get home. In fact, my intention is to wear it messy, wavy, casual as much as possible because, 1) lazy and 2) style. But, mostly lazy, not gonna lie. Haircut styles

I also want to comment that it was really cool of KMS California for arranging the training for the folks here in town at Duncan Brothers Salon, that was led by their International Stylist, Simon Miller. (*How adorable are Simon, Rebekah and I? I *told* you he had an amazing beard!) Rebekah, Simon Miller and Myself

So, now I have to finagle the finer details of fixing it on the daily. And I have one big question – how do I refresh my curls/waves on the daily, without washing my hair every day, because that is NOT happening.

Any suggestions?

Mascara thoughts

Pondering mascara “rules” and why we pick the ones that we use.

Oh, the Covergirl mascara I was referring to in the video, that I couldn’t remember the name of, is the Covergirl LashBlast Super Sizer Mascara.

And, of course, I mentioned my love for Votre Vu mascara and all of the different Rimmel London mascaras, too. I know I was originally sent all of these from PR, but I’ve spent my own money since then to buy some of them, too.

So, how do YOU pick your mascara?

NARS Artistry Sessions

Have you ever wondered just how to get that lip look “just right”? Or how to get a great, but simple eye look, but just couldn’t get it right? Well, NARS Cosmetics wants to help you out. They have put out some “How-To” films called “Artistry Sessions” to show you how to do these things yourself, better.

Right now they have sessions to get a chic and sophisticated eye look, a luminous cheek and a bold and bright lip. All of these are demo’d by NARS National Makeup Stylist, Jenny Smith – maybe you remember her cute braids from the Naeem Khan backstage (*Her voice is so soothing!). I hope they keep adding to this group, as I really enjoyed watching these videos.

What kind of session would you like to see NARS put up?
