One of the very few beauty writers I follow is the brilliant, crazy and refreshingly, jarringly frank and honest Cat Marnell from XOJane.com. I thoroughly recommend following her although prepare to be offended and shocked. But that is the best part. An approach that glosses over nothing. So much more relatable and engaging than the groomed, perfect ciphers that perpetuate so many beauty and fashion blog. She's as candid about her fake tan technique, red lipstick by YSL and her self proclaimed narcissism and substance abuse issues. Some of my favorites pieces by her (most are beauty related, albeit vaguely) include Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, juice cleanses, Whitney Houston, dermatologists and Kate Moss for Supreme.
What skin and hair concerns plague you? And is there anyone you like to read with regards to beauty/health/angst? And why don't we all look cute and fresh faced like Eniko below?
