Caudalíe Beauty Elixir, $38,


“I’m bringing back the return of a satin nude ’90s lip (think Linda/Christy/Kate), so having a creamy moisturizing satin luscious nude lipstick in peach or soft pink is an essential.”

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Nude Kate, $32,


“Excellent formula, instantly de puffs the eyes, brightens and hydrates. The seaweed base soothes and the serum is infused with 24 carat gold. It’s pure luxury for a traveler on the go. A bit of a splurge but they come in 10 pack.”

Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask, $195,

rms beauty Living Luminizer, $38,


“Smooth and soft on the lips!”
