And did I say how easy it is?

*On the eyes:

1) Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze ($27) – Apply the crayon from crease to lash line and blend with brush. Then, use the crayon to color in the bottom lash line.

2) Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Luxury Palette ($52) – Apply the glitter shadow (bottom left) over the Amber Haze pencil.

3) Charlotte Tilbury Rock’N’Kohl Eye Cheat Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil ($27) -Apply in inner corners to brighten the eyes, making them appear wider and brighter! It’s also great to apply the lower waterline when you want to brighten the eye and make your defined lash line look even more defined.

4) L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Volumizing Mascara ($7.99) – stretches those lashes from root to tip to extend and plump. Apply to top and bottom lashes.

*On the brows: 5) L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper ($8.99) – Brush it up and across!

*On the cheeks: 6) Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Liquid Highlighter in Golden Light ($39) – applied on orbital bone and upper cheekbone

7) NYX Cosmetics Baked Blush in Passion ($7) – Apply under cheekbones and on apples of cheeks for a bronzed glow with a bit of peach.

8) On the Lips: Pixi Beauty Tinted Brilliance Balm in Lucent Glow ($14)

All together, you get one sexy, smoldering date-night look!

Golden Globes Glam: The L’Oreal Paris Beauty Studio at the Beverly Wilshire

Between the year just getting started and me being a little under the weather, the first few weeks of January were slow. But they picked right up starting with the Golden Globes.

And to truly kick off award season in glittering, golden style, my fave L’Oreal Paris hosted their annual post-Golden Globes event this past Monday at the Pretty Woman-famous Beverly Wilshire.

Honestly, it ended up being one of the most magical nights of my life. Between being primped and pampered by the L’Oreal beauty team, chatting with Tom Bachik and Billy B, trying out the most delicious new products and tasting the most delicious cocktails and bites, it was my favorite kind of night…a FUN one!

Oh, L'oreal Paris - you always throw the BEST post- @goldenglobesparty...but this one at the Beverly Wilshire penthouse is the best one yet!! A night I'll always remember...


Such a delicious evening last Monday with L'Oreal Paris at theBeverly Wilshire. Can't wait to try all of their new products I went home with... *flowers by Floral Crush


Did you hear @JLo on the @GoldenGlobes say to Jeremy Renner “I’ve got the nails” when they were deciding who should open the envelope? Well, she sure does and it’s because of this guy. The man. The myth. The legend. Tom Bachik…and l’il ole me.

Tom Bachik!!

‘Tis the season for this reason…BEAUTY!!

The goods. Tons of new pretty products I can't wait to try!

Everything that glitters is not gold. Caught looking oh-so-serious in the penthouse of the Beverly Wilshire

The best surprise of all? As the valet brought my car around, I found a Sherrieblossom Icebox makeup organizer in the floorboard of the front seat, filled with L’Oreal makeup and skincare and haircare galore!

Look who crashed my photo! Even Miss Ellie is in awe of the oodles of L'Oreal hair & beauty goodies I got on Monday!! And a Sherrieblossom Icebox beauty organizer to boot! L'Oreal truly gives the best gifts. Thank you, L'Oreal!!

All of those gorgeous goodies are gonna leave this golden girl feelin’ pretty golden for a while now.

Gonna be feelin' golden all award season long...

Thanks so much for a beautiful night, L’Oreal!



BF Asks: What L’Oreal products are you most in love with? 

Be brave…with L’Oréal Age Perfect Cell Renewal

Yes, be brave…but do so with proper skincare.

Be brave…with L'Oréal Age Perfect Cell Renewal skincare (*graphic print by Charm & Gumption)

And, contrary to what the masses might tell you, “proper skincare” does not necessarily mean expensive skincare.

Especially not when L’Oréal has come out with their Age Perfect Cell Renewal line.

The gold packaging of these products couldn’t be more perfect as these products are truly like gold for your skin. But the price is more like copper as you can get all THREE products in the line for right around $75.

All three products contain LHA (which helps stimulate surface skin cell renewal) and Natecium DHC (a powerful anti-oxidant, which helps protect skin from those pesky free radicals). These ingredients – and the others in these golden products – speed up surface skin cell renewal by enhancing exfoliation, revealing millions of new skin cells each day for more glowing, youthful-looking skin. You’ll instantly see smoother, softer skin and skin that appears more refreshed and vibrant. In 1 month, your skin feels firmer, appears visibly replumped, renewed and full of life. I’ll start with them in the order that you should apply them.

Apply Age Perfect® Cell Renewal Golden Serum ($24.99) day and night on dry skin after cleansing and prior to moisturizer. Along with the two powerful ingredients listed above, it also contains Golden micro-reflectors which illuminate skin to reveal a vibrant, glowing, “lit-within” complexion.

During the day, Age Perfect® Cell Renewal Day Cream SPF 15 ($24.99) has got you covered – both in terms of anti-aging and sunscreen. And it’s rich but not so rich that it’s heavy. Instantly, your skin feels smoother and more supple. Who knew sunscreen could do that?

And as a golden nightcap each night, apply Age Perfect® Cell Renewal Night Cream ($24.99). Your skin will not only be more soft, supple and glowing but will also appear denser within a month – and we all know that thicker skin looks like younger skin!

Lastly, can I also tell you the weirdest l’il tidbit about those last two creams? They taste sweet! Now, listen, I don’t normally go around tasting moisturizers but it’s been so hot here in LA, that tasting them was inevitable. They actually taste like sugar rather than that terrible chemical, medicinal flavor that so many of these products have. While I DO NOT CONDONE EATING BEAUTY PRODUCTS, I just think it’s a fun fact you should know. I, for one, find that this trait makes them excellent to apply prior to a massage (when you’re face down) or on a walk/run when we get a little, um, dewy.

So, be brave as you move toward being the best you you can be.

By My Bedside: L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil & Replenishing Moisturizer

I’m in my homestate of Texas this week and I had the pleasure of going to the State Fair of Texas this past Saturday. I must say that not many things make me feel like a kid again like eating a corndog and riding those rides.

The fair just makes me feel like a kid again. But lucky for me - and you - we can get that glow all-year round.

So while I might not feel youthful all the time, I am utterly delighted that L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal products sure bring back the youthful glow to my skin in a pinch…and for a penny of a price!

By My Bedside: L'Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil & Replenishing Moisturizer

Seriously, one of the biggest complaints I hear from women over 25 is that their skin has lost its luster. Well, complain no longer, my sisters, because these products bring that youthful, dewy glow of your youth back.

I start the “get-glowing” process with the with L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Facial Oil ($24.99). After cleansing my skin at night, I apply 4-5 drops of this deeply nourishing yet non-greasy oil. This blend of 8 essential oils absorbs quickly and delivers intense hydration for all-day moisture and glow. I also love applying it in the morning underneath my spf prior to applying my makeup.

Next, I apply the L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Replenishing Moisturizer ($19.99). With just an M&M-sized amount, this luxuriously lightweight moisturizing cream seals in skin’s essential oils – giving the skin an instant youthful glow – and over time, firms your skin. I also love using it to revive my skin after a long day by applying it while I’m stepping up my eye makeup for an evening out. That gorgeous glow is no joke, beauties.

Even the dullest, driest skin will glow with these products. And that’s a BF promise.

As for me, I’m just happy to know that there are products that will keep me glowing until next year’s corndog fair fiesta!
