Method For My Madness

First off, I hate most scented body lotions. I buy all my stuff fragrance free with the exception of sunscreen if it's beachy. I love beachy scent. But that is not why I love the new Method Beach Sage body wash and lotion. I started using the body wash a couple of months ago and I'm obsessed with it. I can't even describe the smell, just that it is really amazing. But I really only use Curel and Aveeno for body lotions. Fragrance free Curel and that Aveeno Creamy oil which smells like almonds, which also passes inspection. But I didn't thought the Beach Sage wouldn't be right in the lotion form. Something about scented body lotion mixed with my skin makes it turn weird. This stuff has a great light texture for Summer and smells suprisingly sophisticated for a $5 lotion. p.s. I'm obsessed with the whole Method line. They make great cleansing and laundry products too!

Fair Is Fair

I'm obsessed with Billie Jean style right now. I'm trying to work this look for summer. I even went so far as to look up the costume designer in this movie. Donna Linson. She didn't really do much else, although she did work in the costume dept. on Fast Times, nuff said.

Just Makeup

Okay sorry it's been a while. Let's talk about makeup. For a while there I was really into my new oil-free tinted moisturizer by Laura Mercier. But it's been so hot in NYC lately that by the time I got home my face looked way too greasy. So I switched back to powder for a while. I bought a great new mineral one from Urban Decay. I've been dying to use mineral powder but had some serious trouble finding one I liked. My skin is pretty pale and they all seem too dark for me. The great thing about this one is that it's yellow and it reduces all the red in my skin. My skin is finally acting like it's old self. After about 2 months of doctor-prescribed Benzaclin it is finally starting to look pretty clear. I'm just going to list everything else I'm digging right now because they're pretty self explanatory.
Nars 'Night Fairy' eyeshadow
L'Oreal Volume Shocking mascara-people are always asking me what mascara I use so there it is
Tarte 'Sunkissed' cheekstain
Lipstick Queen 'Saint Rose' lipstick-I've been trying to get back on lipstick for a long time and nothing has been worthy until this
