WANT // CAT EYE SUNNIES

breakfast at tiffanys: big eyes

I really do not have glasses-face. People never believe me, but then they try and go glasses or sunglass shopping with me and realize that it is an endless and excruciating process that is never fruitful.

However, this Spring I am absolutely determined to get myself a pair of new sunglasses. My poor old Michael Kors sunglasses are barely holding it together and will probably just make it through the Winter. After all, isn’t that what Spring is all about? Out with the old, in with the new! Or whatever makes me feel best about dropping cash.

Up until a few months ago, I never thought my face shape was able to pull of cat-eye sunnies. I always assumed my round shape need square or rectangular frames. Plus, somehow I was always a bit intimidated by the sweeping shape. It always seemed a bit more, I don’t know, daring? I have made it my mission to find myself a pair of chic and maybe a bit fashion forward pair (even though I’ll probably revert to my classic and minimal preferences).

 

ANNA’S TOP 2013 PICKS


Makeup

HOURGLASS
Immaculate Foundation
Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light

The Immaculate Foundation is god-send–the formula feels like a gel moisturizer, the coverage is light but buildable, and it controls oil while looking natural”

MAC
Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover
Liquidlast Liner

“It truly is the blackest liner I’ve ever used”

GIVENCHY
Mister Light Instant Light Corrective Pen

“The warmth of this shade is the key to covering the purple hue that naturally shadows my eye, no matter how much sleep I get”

MAKE UP FOR EVER
Mat Velvet Foundation

“Medium to full coverage and the ability to keep your hyperactive oil glands at bay”

REVLON
Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain 

“These things are just as easy to apply as a Nars pencil, and cost about a third of the price. It lasts a good four hours, which is the longest I think any lip product has EVER lasted for me.

Fragrance

LANCOME
La Vie est Belle

“A deep, optimistic mix of iris, patchouli and gourmand. For me, it comes off as very feminine, floral (but not overbearingly so) and a bit mature”

BURBERRY
Body

I love it because it makes you seem like you just naturally smell amazing, not like ‘oh, her perfume smells amazing’.

Skincare

EMINENCE
Clear Skin Probiotic Line

“The products have not only done heaps in clearing my skin, but have also faded a lot of the marks from old breakouts” 

Nails

LANCOME
Vernis in Love in Grey Lumiere

“When I wore it, I noticed that in some lighting it had a burgundy hue, then in different light it looked a bit like a really dark emerald shade and then sometimes it even had a blueish sheen.”
