Today we're gonna be talking about cosmetics to conceal a dark circle. Now dark circles can really be a frustration for those of us that suffer from them. I know, I'm one of them. They can instantly make you look really tired and just kind of take down the look vibrancy of your face. It's one of my biggest frustrations. But, the good thing is there are a lot of amazing concealers and correctors out there that can make you look wide awake and absolutely banish those dark circles. These are a few of my favorites. I absolutely love It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye. I mean the name just says it all. It's very dense, it has a great amount of coverage, and the colors are all a peach base, which is the key to banishing those blue undertones of your dark circles. Another one that I love is new NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. It has a light reflecting quality to it, once again a beautiful peach base, really really wonderful for those days when you don't need as heavy as a coverage, but still want to make sure that you have that brightness under the eye. And last but not least, I absolutely love SmashBox Cosmetics Photo Op Under Eye Brightener for midday touch ups. It has a really nice kind of shimmer to it that's not too overwhelming and helps to really brighten up the look of the eyes during the day when you might be getting a little bit tired and those circles tend to pop back up. So I hope that helps, and I hope that you try out these cosmetics to help your dark circles.

This season’s New York Fashion Week has started off with a bang, and one of the first looks of the season comes straight from NARS cosmetics.  I can honestly say that I love the easy accessibility of this look. A bright, vibrant lip paired with clean, glowing skin.  Fall perfection!  Another amazing thing….the new NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation.  This foundation is in my current “love” list (review coming soon!).

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealers

Recently, I was able to try a sample of the new NARS Radiant Creamy Concealers and the Light Reflecting Powder.  Well, color me in love! 

These concealers and powder have taken the place of my foundation on days when I want some coverage, and a flawless face....but don't have time for the process. The concealers have a full coverage, yet go on smoothly and feel amazing on the skin.  The colors are also something to rave about.  I mix two different colors to get my perfect match.  

1) Vanilla to highlight around the areas that are red (such as nose, blemishes, or any discolorations in my skin).  I blend this out to give a soft focus finish on my face, and create a "flawless finish" without a face full of foundation.

2) I then use Honey to mask the dark circles under my eyes.  Honey has become my newest favorite peachy toned concealer.  It covers brilliantly and doesn't crease in the slightest.

Next, I finish with a swipe of the Light Reflecting Loose Powder, which I apply with a buff brush (loving the IT Cosmetics Heavenly Powder Brush at the moment).  This powder gives a stunning ethereal look to the skin. Every time I brush it on I want to sing "ahhhhhhh".  Seriously.  It is that pretty.

For the Fall, the color Oxblood has been everywhere. Although the bright color might be intimidating at first, I have started to fall madly in love with it. The deep, aubergine tone can add a sophisticated sexiness to any makeup look.

Sandra Bullock in The Proposal

I am so excited about the movie The Proposal, that my movie geek girlfriend and I have already purchased matinee tickets for Friday’s opening.  I know, I know!  But, I must confess…I have a big girl crush on Sandra Bullock.  I just adore her quirkiness, her wit and how laugh out loud funny she is.  She is one of the rare actresses who can make any movie better, and who I would actually want to be friends with in real life.  She looks like the kind of gal who you could sit out on the porch drinking margarita’s with….
