Saving Face

I’m sorry I disappeared for a while. Unfortunately we have been SICK. The worst kind of sick. My husband and I initially thought we had consumed some wine that was bad. And then the kids started getting sick…. And now we have just been passing it around and around. I have had little sleep in the last week, and am definitely not looking my best. To top it all off, my mother-in-law and brother-in-law are arriving tonight for a much-awaited visit.

I need to pull it together fast. What’s a girl to do?

I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite products for those dreaded gray face days.

Yves St. Laurent Touche Eclat.

This wonder product is perfect for camouflaging dark circles and overall brightening. (Use it as a highlighter on the corners of your eyes, around you nostrils, dotted on the center of your chin, etc.)

Smashbox Photo Finish Makeup Primer

It's every bit as good as you’ve heard. Smooth some on to create a perfect canvas for your foundation, so nobody has to know just how parched your skin is.

Nars Blush

Does this even need an explanation? It's so sheer and so intense at the same time, making it the perfect pick-me-up. My favorite colors are Orgasm and Deep Throat.

And if your skin reacts to stress the way mine does, you may need some acne treatments as well.  Right now my favorite over-the-counter products come from Neutrogena.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Blemish Cream

Neutrogena On-the Spot Acne Treatment

What about you? What are your favorite items for “saving face”? I’d love some more suggestions!


  1. Isnt the YSL eye cream fabulous. I just love mine

  2. Good morning from Tokyo!

    I hope your family is on the road to recovery and that you're able to enjoy your family visit.

    My best to you and yours...



  3. Oh, I hope you all feel better soon... and your visit with your family goes well : ) I love the Coty Airspun Face Powder... it provides excellent finish!

  4. I hope you feel better for the visit - how awful to be so sick! Will look into the YSL eye cream - much needed for moi. I always overdo the blush and bronzer but it always makes me feel better...

  5. I love Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Blemish Cream! Best stuff for my skin with wrinkles and zits.
