Fresh Faced Beauty!

Hilary Duff's looks like an angel, pictured here in a gorgeous Vera Wang Gown.  Ever wonder how you can create the angelic (let's just say it - youthful) glow?  Here are some tips to get you started:
1.) Prep your skin...with more than moisturizer 
     (I love MAC's Fix+ spray as it primes the skin for make-up and wakes you up with it's minerals and green tea)
2.) Give dimension with two shades of foundation
     (I love to use a lighter shade of foundation in the center of the face and a slightly warmer shade around the    perimeter - this give dimension and life to skin)
3.) Play with texture
    (Look for creamy or satin textures to ensure a life-like feel to the skin.  Go the extra mile by adding a slight  irridescent one shade lighter than your skin to the cheekbones.)

What's in your closet this season......?

Here are some of my top picks on todays shopping spree.....

 Jason Wu Swarovski Crystal top $1600 and Ostrich skirt $1695       

        Valentino Organza shoe $1250   

Chloe pant $1260

Gucci take shape...

Actress Maggie Q looks fantastic in this viscose crepe jersey Gucci dress from their Resort Wear 2010 collection.  I would have loved this dress even more paired with an amazing pendant necklace like the Anito Ko 19 Karat rose-gold diamond below, simple and chic!

Maggie was attending PCRM's "Art of Compassion" 25th Anniversary Gala event held at Lot Studios in Los Angeles.  PCRM are doctors and laypersons working together for compassionate and effective medical practice, research, and health promotion.
