Everyone's talking about Brooklyn, but Kimberly Pesch was Brooklyn before it was cool. As the daughter of an architect and a singer, Pesch has been nurturing her creative side for years. So, it's no surprise that this Brooklyn native is now a graphic designer, a photographer, and a master of the mean, bold lip. Her love of clean lines and bold, dimensional color can be seen in her style (think: modern basics with a city-girl twist). It's all shared on her blog, eat.sleep.wear.
From making mint-green eyeshadow look flattering to making neon pink lipstick seem as everyday as a morning cup o' joe, Pesch is a modern-day, beauty glamazon — it's no wonder her beauty and fashion blog has a rabid, cult-like following. So, we jumped on the L train to uncover the secrets that make up her ultra-chic beauty and style repertoire. The best long-lasting lipstick? The eyeliner that won't smudge? It's all here.
