Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

earth day: walking on sunshine

All I ask is, just smell it--the ginger, mandarin and lime scent simply makes you happy in just one squeeze. Not just because you're doing something great for your hair, but you're doing some good for the Earth at the same time. I'm talking about Walking on Sunshine Daily Shine Conditioner from TIGI's Love, Peace & the Planet Collection. The creamy formula has honey, jojoba oil and soy protein to add moisture and strength and leave your hair smooth and shiny. The line of nine products features natural and organic ingredients combined with a minimal amount of synthetics. And all bottles and tubes are made from 50% post-consumer recycled materials and are 100% recyclable. Also designed to revitalize your senses: Totally Beachin' Body & Waves Styling Mist in Coconut Mango Vanilla (yum!) and Free UR Mind Firm Hold Hairspray in Cherry Almond (prices range from $18.95 - 22.95). Look for them in fine salons nationwide or go to for more information.
