I’d Like to Thank My Beauty Kit

Awards season

Awards season is upon us, and, as usual, my invites seem to be lost in the mail. If they do turn up, I plan to rock the Carolina Herrera look with these supporting players.

Eve Lom Golden Radiance Bronzing Powder in Sunrise ($48, spacenk.com): It’s the rare bronzer that neither looks like adobe nor contains shimmer. I don’t do shimmer.


La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil ($300, laprairie .com): The Alpine flowers and algae in this light oil protect and moisturize. One drop and my cheeks look as dewy as Kiernan Shipka’s.


Rescue Beauty Lounge Nail Polish in Réveillon ($20, rescuebeauty.com): This icy blue- gray is the ideal counterpoint to Herrera’s warm citrus ensemble.


Giorgio Armani Luminessence CC ($50, giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com): The light and sheer formula neutralizes dark spots and redness, giving skin that coveted “naturally perfect” look.


Dior Pore Minimizer ($42, dior .com): Think of this silicone-based sheer pink cream as a silk veil for the skin—it provides a smooth plane for makeup.


Covergirl Bombshell Volume Mascara ($12, ulta.com): I’ll skip shadow and go all out with the lashes, painting them with this dramatic, clump-free formula.


Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Complex ($9, revlon.com): Despite a trendy matte finish, it leaves lips soft and smooth.
