Beauty 101: CoverGirl XL Nail Gel

by Anne Dreshfield | September 18th, 2014

What is it about painted nails? For me, it’s the finishing touch on an outfit, a flash of color as you type, hand off an important memo, or take notes during a meeting.

When Skinspiration reached out to me about sharing my skinspiration with all of you, I stared at my computer screen for a moment, dumbfounded.

Beauty 101: Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette

by Anne Dreshfield | August 6th, 2014

What kind of eye shadow do you reach for when you’re getting ready in the morning?
