Green with Envy

Without selling out my beloved turquoise, I find myself drawn to all things green right now. Rich velvet couches, cute sneaks and emerald-colored clutches are all on my list of Daily Covets.

I’m starting to notice a smattering of all shades green in couture collections, home decor sites and at most of my favorite retailers these days too. Is this the next big color?

Every season benefits from the freshest hue on earth. From Springy rebirth to the evergreen hue of a Christmas tree in Winter, there’s no shortage of green all year ’round.

Daily Covet: nm Beauty Awards

Yep, it’s here.  The nm Beauty Awards from Neiman Marcus.  It just so happens I am in need of some cosmetics.

In an attempt to not spend time in the malls with my children, I have forgone what I already know is a great brand in mascara – Lancome.  I had been wearing it for years.  Maybe because I was trying to save a little money, or maybe because I am in Target way more often than Von Maur, I have been using other brands… cheaper brands.

Well, I’m going to splurge on this new-to-me formula (Definicils has been my tried and true), because who doesn’t want Hypnose Drama Instant Full-Body lashes?  Whatever that means…

I am also almost out of liquid make-up, something I never thought I’d wear until my friend, and make-up artist, informed me that powder makes you look older by highlighting fine lines.  Ummm, I don’t need the help.

So I switched to liquid make-up, and I have to say that I actually like it.  Especially when I choose something with moisturizer and SPF in it.  I’ve never really had a favorite – so I’m going to give the winner a chance to prove its worth!

And since spring is just around the corner, and summer isn’t far behind, a tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 from Laura Mercier could be just what the doctor ordered – especially because I don’t like to wear much make-up in the summer.  Ok, really ever.
