“@causeifeellikeit said: I have really thin eyebrows and I’m brown skin. I was wondering if you could recommend any products to help me make them look thicker and longer”

I’m SO glad you asked this. Brows are having a serious moment thanks to Cara Delevigne. As someone who never really invested in brow products until now, I am currently brow obsessed and dying to talk about them.
Someone recently recommended a product to me that I literally can’t believe I ever lived without— Anastasia Brow Wiz. It’s the perfect brow product for two simple reasons:
1. It’s super skinny, which makes it easier to control. Because it’s almost as thin as hair, you can literally create thicker brows without anyone knowing the difference— all you have to do is adjust the pressure as you draw in lines of varying lengths that follow the curve of your brow.
2. On the opposite end of the stick is a small round brush. Brush out the lines you make to make it look slightly more natural.
I would also recommend applying a gel to further deepen the look— this will give the illusion to fuller brows. After the Anastasia Brow Wiz, I brush through with Benefit’s Gimme Brow.
I’m working on building up my YouTube Channel and can create a video for this if you’d like— just let me know! xo
Well, we survived New York Fashion Week! Take a look at Part 1 of my photo diary and stay tuned on how to get the nail looks yourself.

A Formal Affair:
Happy NYFW people! Between camping out at Lincoln Center and running all over the city, the perfect manicure is as essential as Miu Miu fall booties. This requires no base coat and is as simple as a steady hand. Should that extra cup of coffee (or in my case sugar high) get in your way, all you need is tape to give you a guide. This technique is chic and fierce enough to top off any of those perfectly planned outfits.
Where will everyone be for FNO?

Electric Zoo: Now playing: Volcanic, Mattese Elite (available at rickysnyc.com) and Going Back to Cali by Ginger+Liz (gingerandliz.com). I’m heading to Electric Zoo Festival on Randall’s Island, NY today- aka the Land of Neon. Neon is never a minority in my collection of polish, so it was easy to pair my two favorites and have some fun. Hope you enjoy a little basket weave nail art. Remember: don’t feed the animals.

Well here it is: the most buzzed about fall color… Chanel Peridot. Let me tell you, it sure lives up to the hype. This duo-chrome color is unlike any I’ve seen. Peridot is a warm gold with hints of copper and in different lighting green and turquoise radiate and add dimension. Two coats are all I needed to make it completely opaque. I keep wanting to describe this color as an underwater sea creature or a snake eye of sorts. Either way this polish is sexy and exotic. If you’re smart, you’ll run out and get this color before it’s gone for good (see below).
Many thanks to all 8 employees at the Macy’s Chanel counter who not only dealt with me whining about it being sold out, but called every department store in the city to track it down… oh, and for letting me manicure myself with the tester bottle in my moment of desperation.
