"I like to consider myself pretty low maintenancebut of course that depends on who I'm comparing myself to! No matter what I do to my hair it basically falls straight so I rarely blow dry or style it. Frederic Fekkai Lifting & Texturizing Spray is pretty much it as I'm heading out the door. I am, however, quite particular about my color and Seth Silver at L'atelier has been doing my highlights since I moved to New York. He makes me feel like I'm still a California blonde even though I'm far from home (and very far from being tan!).

For skincare I rotate between Kanebo Sensai Soothing Cream (which I steal from my boyfriend) and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. I also wash my face religiously with Dr. Gram’s daily cleanser. Neutrogena sesame body oil is the best. I buy it at my favorite pharmacy, C.O. Bigelow. As for my makeup regime, it's pretty basic. I use Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, Bobbi Brown bronzer, Maybelline Great Lash mascara, Anastasia brow gel and Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream on my lips. My mother got me hooked on the Eight Hour is seriously addicting and anyone else who I've met that uses it wholeheartedly agrees. I have a tube in my desk drawer, my purse and on my bedside table. On a night out I draw a thick line of Chanel black eyeliner on my lids and smudge it with my fingers to get a smokey eye look. Other than that, I'm in the process of finding a good under eye concealer. Since starting my amazing but demanding job, sleep has not been much of a priority so I find myself with rather dark circles! For my nails I am obsessed with the Shellac manicure at Jin Soon. It lasts for over two weeks with no chipping!"

    I'm addicted to the Eight Hour Cream as well, although is it only me, or is it not working as well on the lips as it does on skin...? Hm. Still obsessing, though. Haha.

      Love the EIGHT HOUR CREAM! It is a miracle cream.
      For LIPS I use the 8 hour lip treatment in a LIPSTICK form, it's great
      and it also comes in sheer colors.
      For eye cream, Prevage by Elizabeth Arden/Allergan it's the best, I've tried so many.
      It brightens and soothes puffiness.

    Am loving your blog, as I found it via Harper's Bazaar. Congratulations on the spotlight. This is a great post and I do believe I will be trying Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream.

    Neutrogena 3-in-1 concealer is the BEST (and cheap)! I've been using it for years. Here's a link to a product review:

    Just came across your blog from stylestalker, I love it and plan on frequenting it. You must however, have better luck than I do with the shellac manicures, they kill my nails!! I love how long they last (basically until they've grown too much) and love that they're so shiny but the removal process is rigorous (but maybe that's just me).
