The Coveted List, March 2017

coveted for spring

Spring is here and brings with it all kinds of fabulous things to covet!

I getting ready to spend several weeks in Europe with my Glam Tours, so right now everything I look at has that in mind.

 

The anchor piece is a simple black sundress. I found this Autumn Cashmere Square Neck Midi Dress at Revolve.com.

It’s super versatile (especially for spring/summer travel), can be dressed up or worn casually, is great with flats or heels. Its perfect.

The coolest girls in Europe wear Supergas.

I bought my first pair on the island of Lipari a few years ago, and since then have bought a new color each year. They are chic, cool, and look great with everything. On shoots I wear them paired with a black maxi dress. They look great with jeans, shorts, cropped pant – everything! I found these pink ones on Zappos.

Prada sunglasses.

Obsessed. I try them on every time I go to Nordstrom.

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Hels Bells.

My favorite lip color at the moment is this shade of raspberry/red-crimson. It looks so stunning! Not as aggressive as a red lip, it still commands attention, and is perfect in any situation. Love.

 

Tatcha Deep Hydration Firming Serum.

My favorite serum, ever. I always buy travel sized Tatcha products for my trips, but I buy this one in full size. After the dreariness and dryness of winter our spring skin is screaming for some extra hydration and luminosity. This serum is the holy grail. My Spring 2017 Zoe Report Box of Style had a full size Tatcha Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder in it – I love Tatcha products, so was crazy happy to find it in there! You can check out the Box Of Style here.

 

Foreo ISSA

The ISSA toothbrush from Foreo. This revolutionary toothbrush goes beyond the abilities of regular sonic toothbrushes. It whitens and brightens your teeth, and apparently is amazing for gum health. It is good for everyone, including those with sensitive teeth and gums. Instead of regular bristles the ISSA has silicone bristles, which reduce/prevent gum recession, damage from over brushing, and damage to tooth enamel.

They come in a variety of colors, (I like this lavender shade)only need charging twice per year, and the head lasts a year. Brilliant. (Read more about the ISSA toothbrush here)

This is the perfect pinky-nude shade. Not only is the color gorgeous, but Charlotte’s Matte Revolution lipsticks are really lovely to wear. (which is why I talk about them a lot!). They don’t dry your lips out like most matte lipsticks, instead they keep them hydrated and beautiful.

AUrate is a company on all the fashionistas lists at the moment.

Nicole Kidman’s Makeup Golden Globes 2017

Nicole-Kidman-Makeup-Golden-Globes-2017

Nicole Kidman is guaranteed red carpet gold.
She understands the medium, has the panache to pull off any look she wants, whether she is going classic old Hollywood or avant garde nouveau.

I was really disappointed with many of the red carpet makeup looks this golden globes. The looks I liked from a distance looked like un-powdered drag up close. But Nicole’s makeup was on point. Probably because of her collaboration with one of my favorite makeup artists, Charlotte Tilbury.

I found the breakdown of Nicole’s makeup on People.com

Here is an exerpt from the original article, written by Juliann Ruffo

Nicole Kidman’s Glam Squad Takes Us Inside Her Globes Prep

At Sunday night’s Golden Globe awardsNicole Kidman continued her reign as a red carpet queen, opting for a metallic, sequin encrusted Alexander McQueen gown with statement sleeves and equally dazzling hair and makeup. And because we needed to know exactly how to re-create her look, we tapped her pros — who shared their secrets.

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury tells PeopleStyle of the inspiration behind her makeup look, “Her look is dreamy, ethereal, and has a little bit of a rock chick kind of edge to it. She’s wearing a beautiful Alexander McQueen dress that’s tulle and silver, its dreamy.”

To prep Kidman’s skin, Tilbury applied her new sheet mask, which launches next month, and she describes as an “instant celebrity facial.” Then, she applied her world famous Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, followed by her Magic Foundation.

Next, the pro filled in Kidman’s eyebrows with a brow gel, before moving onto her eye shadow. First up? The champagne shade from her Uptown Girl eye shadow palette, followed by the minky grey shade all over her lids and underneath her lower lash lines.

Then, in order to create the metallic sheen on Kidman’s lids, Tilbury used the glittery silver shade from her  Rock Chick palette, applying it all over the lid using her fingers. “It really plays with the light and picks up the light really beautifully,” she says, adding that she then added a wing with a charcoal grey eye liner, and lined her waterlines with a shimmery brown pencil.

To top it all off, Tilbury added a few swipes of Full Fat Lashes mascara, a bit of contour on her cheeks and temples, and blush on the apples of her cheeks. On her lips? “Kidman’s Kiss — a color that I specifically mixed for her. It’s her favorite lipstick,” Tilbury says.
