I am so ready for vacation… I have actually had all my clothing laid out for over a week! I have previously posted about my love of Chantecaille makeup and how I discovered the brand through my best friends when she got married. I had an appointment in midtown this week and couldn’t resist popping into Bergdorf Goodman to get some makeup for my trip. The people at the Chantecaille counter at BG are the best, so it is always my go-to stop for makeup. All of my current makeup seems too wintery and drab for St. Barths. I want to enhance and elevate that I have been at the beach all day look when I am dancing at Le Ti at night! The bronzer is called St. Barths so that was a no brainer and I am so excited about the limited edition lipstick I got. The lipstick is called Saxifrage and its amazing! Obviously, you don’t need a lot of makeup when your on vacation in the Caribbean but a little will enhance that beachy glow.
Winter in NYC can be pretty brutal and your skin can take a serious beating with those arctic wind blasts and dry heat. Also, I can’t remember the last time I felt sun on my skin, probably because I am always wearing at least 4 layers. My Doctor reinforced the fact that I haven’t seen sun in a long time by telling me I was slightly vitamin D Deficient (probably along with every other New Yorker). So really this trip is medically advisable. With that in mind, sunscreen is going to be a MUST. I have weirdly sensitive skin and a lot of sunscreens cause me to get rashes – not cute at all but unfortunately true! Luckily, I have found great products that my skin loves and they are already packed and ready to hit the beach with me! My dermatologist swears by Skinceuticals and I have become a convert, this is the only sunscreen I put on my face.
