Beauty has never been my strong suit.  I will pick up a Bazaar, Vogue, or Lucky mag waaay before I pick up an Allure and most of my make-up bag consists of random items I have stolen from Mom or Sis.  My theory is this:  because my ensembles veer a little more Carrie than Charlotte, simple make-up and accessories (statement necklaces excluded) provide balance, hopefully giving me a more mellow vibe over all.

I do have a few favorites, however, that even this clutter-phob always keeps in stock:


Pale Girl’s Essentials – Jergens Natural Glow lotion, NARS Body Illuminator in Laguna, and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer sunscreen in 70spf.


Lips – Tom Ford in Smoke Red, Tom Ford in True Coral (wish I could say these aren’t worth it at $48 a pop but they are.  Tom Ford lipsticks are also a sign of when you’ve really made it in life.  True story), Illamasqua in Matte Orange Red, CoverGirl in Hot Passion, Bath & Body Works Blush Glass Lipstain, Estee Lauder in Frosted Apricot, and CoverGirl Blast Flip Stick in both Perky and Cheeky.  Note that this last one, specifically in Cheeky, is a company wide obsession here at M&L, looking gorge on both of our complexions!


Hair – Ojon Rare Blend Oil, Moroccon Oil, Ever Straight Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray, and the Cali required Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray.
