Happy Saturday and makeup picks!

Hope you are all having a great week.

It’s been rainy-gloomy here. I want it to snow already! I have my snow tires on and my four wheel drive ready to take me up north. I’m not sure if my compromised vision will allow me to ski this year, but I can après with the best of them.

On Wednesday, I was at a dinner for the Association for Women in Marketing and Media. And then, I spent all day yesterday in the studio taping. It felt like old home week as I reconnected with people I’ve not seen in months. We filmed some great shows airing in December on YES TV.

I love this new work. It feels very heaven directed.

Thank you all for the cream tips. I slathered myself with Resist BHA 9 by Paula’s Choice.

It’s spendy since the bottle is tiny but it’s a miracle working product for me and it seemed to do the trick, allowing Elizabeth to do my studio makeup, using her magic wand:

Under sweltering hot lights for 6 hours and it did not budge!

It was my daughter’s birthday recently, allowing me to log some serious time in Sephora. If I were 20, I think that’s where I’d work. It’s such a happy place. The people who work there seem to love it as they wax poetically about which palettes are winners. The holy grail seems to be finding a product so good you use every last bit of it and “hit pan.” My latest obsession is Too Faced Gingerbread Man Melted Matte liquid lipstick that dries down to a very liveable brick shade.

I’m also loving the Glossier concealer. It covers a multitude of problems. Their brow and lip products are good too (I like Zip for lips.) Their Phase 2 Kit is a great every day pretty-fier.

Are you getting some new makeup shades for the holidays? Have you done any Christmas shopping yet?



  1. Hi Jen, that's a lovely photo of you. It must be such a treat to have your make-up done professionally … it's certainly the only way I'd want to appear on tv! What do you think of the Glossier products in general, and ordering through the website? I've heard a lot about them via some British sites and they seem to be very popular. I just made a small Sephora order – 2 repurchases (Dior Creme Abricot, Nars blusher – I hit pan! Only took me about 4 years!) and It Cosmetics CC cream. I just don't wear make-up often, not often enough to keep the VIB status I earned last year when I ordered a Foreo! Yes, I've done some Christmas shopping, even sent a parcel away at the end of October, but there's still lots more to do!


  2. Awww, thank you. It is nice to just show up at the studio bare-faced and be taken care of so well! I like the Glossier products so far. The brow cream is great and very natural. The lip product is good – more like a natural stain, which I like. I use the makeup as undereye concealer since it's very thick and I hate the feel of makeup on my face. Generally, it was a good experience shipping to Canada. That's good to get those parcels in the post early. Shipping can take forever! xo


Love to hear from you!
