One of the reasons I got in to reporting initially was to indulge my nosey nature. My platforms — be it a TV segment or a blog — give me a constant reason to ask people personal questions that don’t necessarily come up naturally in conversation. And then, in my case, apply their words of wisdom as needed to my own life in order to style smarter or beautify better.
Alison Brod works 24/7 yet manages to always look put together. I know this because I worked with her for many years at her agency, Alison Brod Public Relations. She goes out every single night, yet still looks like she got 8 hours of sleep and all the time in the world to get ready for early morning meetings.
These are the 5 things Alison would stock up on given shopping spree at the Saks beauty floor:
Fracas — “Some think this scent is sweet and innocent, others think the tuberose notes are seductive. It was innovative for its time and even cab drivers often ask me what fragrance I am wearing.”
Erno Laszlo Phormula 3-9 —“It is luscious and dense and perfect for summer when you have taken in a lot of the sun and need to renourish and soften.”
MAC Mad Cap Lipglass — “This is an opaque nude gloss with enough color to look like you have made an effort, but it is still fabulously natural looking. This is a gloss for women who are not afraid of sticky.”
Nars Orgasm —“It is almost cliché to say that I love this blush, but it really is a natural color that wakes up your cheeks.”
Caswell-Massey Sea Grass Hand and Body Soap Set —“This is a perfectly priced gift that will last longer than a bottle of wine. The bold photographic packaging is a bit unexpected and for most, will evoke seaside breezes and happy summer memories.”
