SUN PORCH MAKEUP

It was a perfect morning at Shelter Island’s The Chequit Hotel. This place was built in the 1800’s just steps from the coast. It feels charming and feels so remote, unlike most of the hotels I stay in when I travel for work. There are no TV’s in the room…gasp…you can’t hear a sound, maybe just the creak as you walk across the hallway. As a city girl, it certainly took me a few moments to get into this slow paced swing-of-things. I don’t think I’ve had a better night’s rest in a long time! Shelter Island is a place to grab a few good books and really relax. A place to unplug. I spent my mornings on this gorgeous sun porch overlooking the waterfront. I’d have my cup of coffee before making way for the little town down the road, where all you can find is a pizza joint and cafe. It’s a whole other side of Shelter Island I’ve come to love, just a 10 minute cab ride away from the parties and night life. For super quick weekend trips to the Hamptons, I kept my makeup super minimal. Sure, I love a clean face and bold brow, but I’m playing with a lot more color on my lids. I recently fell in love with a deep purple shadow, an unexpected pop for the end of summer.

THE LOCK IN 24 CHALLENGE WITH NEXXUS

I’ve partnered with Nexxus to take part in the #Lockin24 challenge with Nexxus Therappe and Humectress!

My hair has never really felt better. I went a few shades darker with my color. I had an amazing cut…my bangs feel a lot more light, framing my face. The ends of my strands feel super smooth. But it definitely took time for me to achieve extra healthy, strong hair. After my Nexxus salon experience, I decided it was time to dedicate a little bit more time each day to treating my hair. I began the #Lockin24 challenge with the Nexxus Therappe shampoo and Nexxus Humectress conditioner. For a little extra power, I have been using the Nexxus Encapsulate serum on the ends of my damp strands right after I shower, or first thing in the morning. The results are magical. Here is my hair, with 24 hours of moisture protection.

SPRIGS OF SPRING ON MY LIDS

Every beauty brand I love is mastering my favorite product: a killer eye palette. They are a lot more like works of art! I’m not talking about creating your average smoky eye, but a play on pastels, bold hues, and of course, some summer bronze. Here I’m wearing the By Terry shadow stick in “Acqua Mint.” Isn’t it just lush? Unexpected, yet so romantic.
