It's Friday and the weekend is upon us...what a whirlwind that was! I hope you've had a chance to watch my August Favorites Video. If you haven't yet, grab a snack and plan for a twenty minute excursion into all things beauty and skincare related ; ) This post covers a bit of this and that...beginning with an unmissible weekend event and closing with a preview of a few new beauty items in my life.
Kindly scroll on for all the details as well as the Bottom Line...

If you are a Southern California local (or happen to be in the area this weekend), consider yourself cordially invited to the Seal Beach Arts and Crafts Festival. My brother, Seth Wegter, makes handcrafted bags and accessories of incredible quality and creativity and he will be having a booth there all weekend (see details on the image above). This free event, which is held on either side of the Seal Beach Pier, is always a brilliant way to enjoy the last bit of summer; I will be there helping him all weekend and implore you to stop by and say hello if you are so inclined!

Next up, I just received my initial (yes, there shall be more!) Charlotte Tilbury order from Net-A-Porter. Although I haven't had the chance to properly photograph everything yet, the shiny mahogany boxes are eye candy of their own, no? I already adore the Bronze and Glow (thoroughly discussed HERE) and am beyond thrilled by its newfound accessibility in the US. The line (also available at Nordstrom and CharlotteTilbury.com) has a full spectrum of products...from eyeshadow and mascara to lipstick and powder, it's all really quite lovely. I picked up:
- The Lip Lustre Luxe Color-Lasting Lip Lacquer in Seduction and Portobello Girl
- The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink
- The Air Brush Flawless Finish Micro-Powder in Medium
- Color Chameleon Eye Shadows in Amber Haze, Dark Pearl and Smoky Emerald

I also have my eye on the Wonderglow, Magic Cream, Cheek to Chic Swish and Pop Blush in First Love and, of course, the Light Wonder Foundation. I highly recommend taking a peek at Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter (free shipping...my order, beautifully wrapped, arrived in two days!) while both sites still have stock (it's been selling like crazy). Can't wait to hear what you choose!

If you have been a long time reader of Beauty Professor, then you know that I rarely paint my nails and if I do, it is usually some hue of nude. That being said, I recently tried the LVX Nail Lacquer in Laguna...a creamy, pigmented soft turquoise that is unlike anything I own to date. Even though it is totally outside of my comfort zone, I have been duly amused by the adventure of wearing this gorgeous formula ( the past couple of days. Thoughts?

Finally, I've been experimenting with the Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint (currently available at Sephora). Chock full of beneficial, anti-aging ingredients, this new formula features medium to full coverage with an ultra light finish and marvelous wear time. My shade is Golden, which works for my currently NC 25-27 skin. Swatches and review in the very near future!

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this post and would LOVE to see you at my brother's booth at the Seal Beach Arts and Crafts Festival...please stop by if you can! Also, do leave me a comment letting me know what Charlotte Tilbury products you've already procured or which ones you have your eye on. Let the discussion commence!
xoxo and much more soon,
