Betsey McLain, Contributing Beauty Editor
What I'm Wearing: "Earnest Sewn jeans, Madewell boots, a Jeffrey Monteiro scarf, and a Margiela t-shirt. The jacket is borrowed from Christene (thanks!), bag is vintage Bruno Magli, and I'm also wearing Julia Failey Tiger Hoop earrings."
Beauty Du Jour: "I'm a big fan of Sue Devitt's Eye Intensifier—it creates a perfect smudgy eye—but I switch between light and dark shades depending on my mood. I went with a darker brown today to make the look a bit more intense. I'm a big fan of Shu Uemura's hair products and use a combo of Kaze Wave and the super-moisturizing Essence Absolue (the Absolue smells amazing and is not greasy at all); I'm loving Estee Lauder's new Sumptuous Extreme mascara. The brush is HUGE; and I went for a bold lip, courtesy of Covergirl's new Nature Luxe lip balm."
Favorite Holiday Gift: "My sister gave me a Bialetti Moka Express espresso maker. It's ridiculously easy and makes the yummiest coffee."
Have You Been Keeping Up Your New Year's Resolution?: "Yes! My resolution is to finish my next screenplay. I've been slowly plugging away at it, but I have all of 2011, right?"
