BEAUTY CONTRIBUTOR

I’m a Los Angeles girl, born and raised, and I feel like my style reflects my city. During the day I’m all about natural-looking make up, gold liquid eyeliner, mascara, nude lipstick. But at night, I love to put on that Sunset Strip look- bright red lipstick, dark smoky eyes or a dramatic cat eye. It really depends on what mood I’m in but I’ll always be comfortable rocking that tan just came from the beach look, or look like I should be waiting in line for the Roxy.

Hair Icon: My hair icon is either Lara Stone or Scarlett Johansson. I love Lara’s wispy hair that brings such an effortless style to her outfit— it seems like she just rolled out of bed, which brings such a simple sexiness. Scarlett isn’t afraid to go for that classic Hollywood bombshell look. She can cut her hair short and curl her hair to perfection and rock a bright red lip that makes her seem like she just stepped off a Hollywood red carpet in the ‘40s. And they’re both blonde, like me.

Makeup Icon: Blake Lively is my makeup icon. Like I said before, I go back and forth between the Malibu beach look to Sunset Blvd look, and Blake does as well. She always has that great California glow (even when filming in New York) and always looks so natural and beautiful. Even when she is obviously wearing makeup, it is never overpowering.

  1. […] And amazingly, it works to effectively balance my skin. Right after I applied the stuff, I could feel it moisturizing my skin without leaving a greasy or oily sheen. Even better? My skin stayed moisturized all day. Since Hauschka is all about holistic skincare, this formula is fittingly made with a bouquet of natural ingredients, like it’s namesake melissa (lemon balm),  anthyllis, carrot, English daisy and witch hazel. It has a distinct lemon smell, which might be a bit overpowering for some, but to me, it just evokes the natural ingredients that are in the 1oz tube. Bottom line: this moisturizer makes my skin feels soft and my complexion appear even and clear. –Julia McQuade […]

  2. […] The powder is easy to apply and stays on without migrating elsewhere on the lid throughout the day. The highlighter is a beautiful shimmering rose color that creates the illusion of bigger eyes when applied on the inside corners of the eye, near the nose. One gripe–both sponges are too wide to draw a thin, definite line, making it impossible to draw precise Kate Middleton eye, for example. But if you’re looking for a no-brainer tool to help bust out a quick smokey eye, this liner/highlighter hybrid is just the thing. –Julia McQuade […]
