Vintage Makeup Bag: Twilight, Beauty Editors and Bobbi Brown Concealer to Go!

Kristen Stewart Twilight Premier November 2008

Can you believe it’s been an entire year since the Twilight Premiere in Los Angeles last November? When I told you about the Dior makeup Kristen Stewart wore that night, I had no idea of the Robert Pattinson–Kristen Stewart craze that was lurking ahead. (Not that it would have changed anything, but I like to prepare myself for these kinds of things.) (Speaking of Twilight, will you be heading to your local theater at midnight tonight for New Moon? Bailey has already made her TEAM JACOB t-shirt and is making her way to the theater as I type. Bree says she’ll hold out one more day for her Edward fix. Sleep is more precious than vampires, she says.)

Stephanie Johnson ML Traveler

Last year at this time, according to Makeup Bag archives, I was preparing to go out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday and got some excellent packing tips from Stephanie Johnson, the brains behind Stephanie Johnson cosmetic bags.


I was also battling dry, flyaway hair and found four conditioners to quench my thirsty hair without weighing it down.


TWO years ago, back in November 2007, I had just returned from a whirlwind trip to New York where I had the opportunity to meet some of my favorite beauty bloggers and editors. In the photo above, I’m at Takashimaya with Annie from Blogdorf Goodman, Allure web editor Fiona Gibb and Allure beauty director Amy Keller Laird.


In November 2006 (I know, I’m getting ancient here) this blog was just three months old and I was over the moon with news of the new Bobbi Brown Concealer to Go. Sadly, this matchbox sized mirrored compact with Creamy Concealer, Corrector, and Sheer Finish Pressed Powder is no longer available.

7 days of holiday looks

Oh, I almost forgot! Last year’s 7 Days of Holiday Looks feature is returning next week. Only, this year Bree & Bailey are joining me in creating 7 days of holiday looks. Are you good at math? This means, between the three of us, we’ll have TWENTY ONE gorgeous holiday looks to share! Are you excited, or what?
