WILD!!! I feel like a 70s Glamour Puss in Summer

So, as you beauties know, I get to try A LOT of products. With Lorac, I usually end up loving them! And this WILD FOR TANTALIZER was no exception.

When Lorac sent me this collection, I thought I’d give it a try for a beauty event I went to on Tuesday night. And I wished that it would make me channel Jaclyn Smith while I prayed it’d look “okay” on me.

Well, it SURPASSED my WILDEST expectations!!

I put it on quickly before going out for the evening to The Viceroy in Santa Monica.

I applied the lightest shadow (Fierce) on my brow bone, Panthera on the lid, Saber right above the crease (on the eye socket) and Tigris right in the crease as well as on the lower lash line.

After applying my winged eyeliner, under-eye concealer and tinted moisturizer, I applied a pop of peach blush to the apples of my cheeks and then applied the Animal Print Face Bronzer.

How to apply? I like to start on the cheekbones and work it up in an upside down heart shape on my nose up to my temples. Then I do a regular heart by starting at the nose, carrying on it across the underside of the cheekbones down to my chinny-chin-chin.

Lastly, I lightly applied a Nude lip liner and buttered up my lips with the Creme Brulee-scented TANtalizer Lips with Benefits Gloss in Raoul. This shade SCREAMS beach-time beauty! It’s a super-sexy, shimmering peachy bronze.

I was also lucky enough to have my have photographer, Amy Opoka, with me to snap some poolside shots before the evening was in full swing.

Amy Opoka Photography
“Who did your photos?”
I get this. A LOT.
Amy Opoka did them and she has done lots more where that comes from.
Music, fashion, editorial, headshots, live performances: she’s your girl.


I heart this blog. It has taught me so much. Like, to eat a bowl of corn the night before a photo shoot to make your skin glow.
And its creator, Elizabeth Baker, is one of my favorite ladies. I’ve known her since she was in high school and she has always been an icon waiting to happen.

Neiman Marcus
I grew up at Neiman Marcus Northpark. I jokingly refer to it as The Mothership. My first job was here, working for Trish McEvoy. I always visit when I’m home and, during a shopping job at the Beverly Hills location, I love grabbing lunch at their cozy restaurant.

Beauty Collection
Lots of shopping for my clients takes place here, both in-store and online. They’re accommodating, kind and super-informed.

Woo Skincare & Cosmetics
I worked at Woo, years ago, as a Bobbi Brown counter manager and helped introduce the Armani Beauty line to Nashville, as Armani’s Counter Manager.
More importantly, you can find almost everything I write about at Woo!

Uptown Country Home
Can’t get enough of the darling home decor that Jenny offers at her adorable store. If you like shabby chic, you will be in heaven here.
