One Interesting Read. Who was the mysterious woman who wanted to be 9

I posted this dark circle coverage tutorial a few weeks ago, but it needs to be shared again.  I don’t know why it never dawned on me to set my concealer and my corrector, but it has made a big difference in covering my toddler-induced under-eye darkness.  With fantastic makeup tips, @adityamadiraju is a must follow.

This Bobbi Brown is my favorite corrector.  Need a drugstore option?  Try this elf Camo Corrector.

    how do the bodysuits look when one has erm… rolls on the belly? Really high waisted bottoms? They look so sleek but I always assumed they wouldn’t work on me.

      Try a bodysuit made by a shape wear company. I have a similar issues post baby, and with a little smoothing and a high rise jean, they still look pretty good.

    I lusted over that A&F bodysuit and paid a lot more for it than the current price. My experience if you’re considering it: I went up two sizes because it ran quite small (I also have a long torso), but I couldn’t make the wrapping stay put in a flattering way. I hope it works for someone else because the material is awesome and the ruching hides any bulges.

    LOVE the idea of satin pants, but don’t want to look like I’m wearing pajamas out and about. Could you do a styling post on them?

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
