Second City Style’s 12 Days Of Christmas (Shopping) ’08. Day 11: Beauty Writer Kelley Wood’s Picks

December 15, 2008 • Shopping


This Xmas is different for me. I have more needs than I have wants, but that doesn’t stop me from just wanting to have a few things! From watches to cosmetics, we’ll just see what Santa brings 😉


Juicy Couture ‘Christy’ Interchangeable Bezel Watch $250
Since I recently lost my favorite watch of 7 years, I was on the hunt for another one that I could wear daily, and spotted this beauty. This watch is cute, girly, still sophisticated, but not too stuffy. It goes with just about anything, and still has charm.


Shu Uemura False Eyelashes $25
One of my favorite makeup brands, has the best eyelashes. I want every one of my Brides and clients  to wear a pair of  Shu Uemura lashes. They are very glam, but very natural. Perfect for Weddings.


Bobbi Brown ‘Copper Diamond’ Beauty Kit $95
What’s not to love about Bobbi Brown? This beauty kit holds all of your essentials. Products not inlcuded, but who wouldn’t have fun filling this with the Bobbi Brown classics pictured above?


Garfield Makeup Chair $699
I have a Makeup Studio that is under construction, and I have to have this chair. The color is perfect, even though I would have dozens other colors to pick from. This is the perfect chair for any makeup application. You can adjust the height, headrest, and even lean it back. The back and head rest is perfect for those who fall asleep in my chair as I do their makeup.


Bliss Vanilla + Bergamot Set $84
I absolutely adore Bliss. Their products are heavily scented and very rich. I feel so luxurios everytime I use their products, and the scent last for hours. It’s always a hit when I give it as a gift, but I do have to keep some for myself.


Zuca Pro Complete Set $285
This is perfect for my over stuffed makeup kit. I have gone through 5 Traincases, and 2 suitcase, and nothing has been satisfactory for going to appointments, and traveling. So, I am happy to have found this Zuca case. I love the compartments, and wheels on this case. It is not too big, and easy to lug around through the streets, and NY subways. This is a must.


Stuart Weitzman Silver Mirror Calf "Russia Hour’ Sneakers $147
On a busy day when there is no room for heels, these sneakers are perfect. Stylish, polished and a great color. Perfect to dress up or down, jeans or slacks. I am glad to  have found these after I wore my comfy Cole Haan’s to the soles.


Yaby Cosmetics $110-$136
I want every Eye Palette from this wonderful line. Made for the purpose of downsizing makeup kits for the working artist, the eyeshadows and paints are super pigmented! Brilliant.
