Let’s Hear it For the PROs

 
I love jumping back into fall with New York Fashion Week. It feels like such a New York event—hectic, high energy and all about style.
After my work on Salute the Runway, I stepped back and let my amazing PRO Team get to work. Take a look behind the scenes as they… READ MORE

Salute the Runway

Salute the Runway


When I was asked to help out with Salute the Runway—an event featuring real women who have served in the armed forces—to kick off New York Fashion Week, I couldn’t have said a more enthusiastic “yes.”
The show, which happened Wednesday night at… READ MORE

Back to School: Makeup Bag Detox

Back to School: Makeup Bag Detox


There’s no better way to welcome fall than with a freshly-organized makeup kit. Like all of us, after a while, my makeup kit starts to become a junk-drawer—slowly accumulating products that are out of date or never used. To keep things clean and simple, I try to… READ MORE

Emmy Night with the Ladies of SNL

Emmy Night with the Ladies of SNL


When I need to laugh (which is often) and my guys aren’t around, SNL is my go-to show. It’s been so funny recently, and I love that the cast is full of so many talented, hilarious women. This week, my amazing Makeup Artist Cassandra Garcia had the task of making up the ladies of SNL for the Emmy’s. Not a bad gig, right? I asked… READ MORE

Three-Day Getaway

Three-Day Getaway


I love to be organized. It’s critical for me—if I don’t plan ahead, my creative mind will wander. When it comes to packing, it really helps me to have a regular list of what I’ll need for different trips. I go away on the weekend a lot, so it’s… READ MORE

Revenge Makeup


You know the story—you go through a rough breakup, you start to move on, put away the ice cream, go out again and…run into your ex. There’s almost nothing worse. But while you can’t really prepare emotionally for seeing him, you can look—for lack of a better word— really… READ MORE

Simple Gazpacho


It’s the end of summer—so sad—and my garden is totally overflowing with delicious, sun-ripe tomatoes. What to do with all of them? I love an easy summer gazpacho. It couldn’t be simpler to make, it’s super healthy and of course it tastes so good. Here’s… READ MORE

How to Be Gorgeous at the Beach

How to Be Gorgeous at the Beach


There’s a fine line between Beach Beauty—think sun-kissed skin, tousled hair—and Beach Disaster—splotchy sunburn, dry hair. Here are some essentials that I pack in my beach bag to guarantee I have a gorgeous day at the beach.
Before You Go

Lisa Curran Bathing Suit: I love this classic, simple tank bikini that offers a little more coverage than a normal two-piece, but feels just as comfortable.
Buffing Grains: Made from Adzuki Beans, this natural exfoliant combines perfectly with a foaming cleanser to make my skin glow.
Protective Face Base SPF 50: When I’m preparing to spend a day in the sun, I like to apply sunblock as I would moisturizer. This way, it has time to absorb and I rarely miss a spot.
Sunscreen: This should be a no-brainer. I love Bullfrog sunscreen because it absorbs quickly and stays put all day—I put it on my hands and chest twice, since those areas burn easily. Again, apply before you go to avoid missing hard-to-reach spots.

Great Walls

Great Walls


I really believe that our places of work matter—I don’t feel productive unless I’m in a space that’s well-lit, comfortable and inspiring. I thought a lot about these qualities when setting up Bobbi Brown Headquarters in Soho. I wanted a space that would… READ MORE

What feels better than a great workout? Lately, I’ve been loving the classes at my local gym, Adventure Health & Fitness, which was started by fitness gurus Michael Smith and Laura Powell. It’s super-challenging, incredibly fun and makes me feel strong and confident. We sat down with half of the AHF… READ MORE
