Little Pig, Little Pig, Let Me In!!! Happy Halloween! This year, I’ll be appearing as the Big Bad Wolf – complimenting my little piggy. I bought the fuzzy hat from eBay and squeezed into the size SM jacket I got 7 years ago – just glad it still fit.

If there’s any occasion to wear ridiculous false lashes, Halloween is one of them. I kept the shadow clean and shimmery for contrast (M·A·C’s NEW Glitter and Ice Paint Pot in Let’s Skate ($18.50) – a sheer glittery pink pearl), used lots of black eye liner and applied a black feathered Shu Uemura pair of lashes. Bronzed cheeks and sheer red lips finished my Halloween look.

NEW COSMETIC PRODUCTS THIS WEEK

CLARISONIC MIA2←NEW! Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System ($149). Almost every beauty magazine and editor swears by Clarisonic sonic cleansing brushes. Now, their wildly popular (and candy colored) Mia comes in an upgraded version that offers two speeds and a one-minute pulsing T-Timer.  I also recommend picking up a  Deep Pore Brush Head ($25) which is best for getting around the nose area and for clearing out large pores. It made me love my Clarisonic even more!  Where to buy Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes

NOW ROSE HIP SEED OILNOW Rose Hip Seed Oil ($6.99). Rose Hip Seed Oil is naturally rich in vitamin C, retinol, omega 3 & 6 and is used for a variety of skin conditions including dermatitis, acne, eczema, sunburn, scarring and for diminishing photo-aging. All I did was add the tiniest bit around my tired, dry eye area and it made a world of difference.

I’ve tried to use several different facial oils and I normally can’t resist the urge to wash my face. The benefits of using natural oils is undeniable and using them just in the areas of concern is a great way to avoid feeling greasy. Even with the extra layer of oil, I was still able to apply makeup over the area without it affecting the look or wear. I will definitely start experimenting more with this oil!
