Five Current Obsessions.

Obsession #1:  Neutral Eye Look.

This can be easily achieved by utilizing your face powders as your sole eyeshadow for the mobile lid. MAC Too Chic Beauty Powder (seen here), Hourglass Ambient Powder in Diffused Light (reviewed here) and MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural all work beautifully for this purpose.  Use your blush as a crease color and lower lid color, add some mascara and liner and voila you are done.  Bright, awake, youthful looking eyes are yours for the day.  As an added bonus your makeup will done in half the time.

Obsession #2:  Gold Tone Jewelry.

Gold tone jewelry complements my shintone so much more than silver, white gold or platinum jewelry.  My favorite designers range from Pomellato, Jennifer Meyer, to Anna Beck and Liquid Metal Bracelets by Sergio Gutierrez.  Personally, I cannot pull off the ever so popular “statement necklaces” which seem to popping up everywhere.  Whenever I try to wear an oversized necklace, I feel as if the necklace is wearing me and not the other way around.  Simple and elegant, quality over quantity has been my mother’s mantra for years.  I’m starting to see the wisdom in her theory.

Obsession #3:  Infinity Scarves.

There is no denying the cold chill looming in the air.  Fall has arrived and I plan to be prepared for what follows.  Vanity aside, every effort will be made to avoid illnesses of any kind this year; all exposed skin will be covered.  Infinity scarves are a perfect way to combine style with utility.  No messy fringe or bulky fabric to contend with, this Chelsey by Joseph Scarf is soft, warm and attractive.  As an added bonus, neatly sewn ends detract dogs (my Yoshi) from chewing or grabbing.

Obsession #4:  Tom Ford Eye Defining Pen.

I just can’t get enough of this inky blacker than black double-sided liner (here).  Official review coming soon.  Don’t hate me..I know, I know the price is beyond ridiculous, but it really is such an ingenious design and formula!  Darn you Tommy…I hate you…NO..I  take that back…I really ♥ you!

Obsession #5: Wallet Purses.

Why do these tiny purses fascinate me?  Perhaps it is my desire to walk around hands-free with minimal baggage, while retaining impeccable style.  Whatever the case may be, I want one of these beauties in my life.  Apparently, I am not the only person in the world that desires simplicity in her life; various designer houses each have a version of the “wallet on a chain” purse.  The most iconic and insanely expensive selection hails from the House of Chanel:

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you to enjoy your healthy passions.  Indulge when you can and abstain until you are able to get exactly what you want.  What are you obsessing about lately?  Be well and stay safe.
