Crush of the Month is a column featuring my latest, greatest, cutest crush on a some hot babe in the beauty industry. This isn’t just about looks though; these babes are extremely talented as well.

I remember the first time I saw Darais. It was circa 2007 and I awake stupid early (8am) working a trend show at a local Nordstrom. The store had yet to let people in, so I was doing my usual artist-scoping when I saw one of the hottest guys I had ever seen in my life over at the Lancôme counter. He had an edgier, more rock n’ roll look than I’m used to seeing at Lancôme; tattoos, face scruff, bedhead and I think he might have even been wearing leather pants. I’m not even gonna lie: I was straight. up. staring.
A letter of caution to all my future boyfriends (I’m looking at you, Adam Levine), or to any dude who wants to date a beauty blogger, makeup artist, or product junkie. This is your cheat sheet. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
Those aren’t my hands, but that is my actual lip print.

Get ready to feel pretty vintage – 17 years ago today, the greatest movie ever premiered in movie theaters across America: CLUELESS.
If you’re any kind of awesome, this movie has definitely had an impact in your life, whether big or small. Obviously, it has had a GIANT impact in mine (if you spend more than 30 seconds talking to me, you’ll know). If you’re “too young” for “Clueless” to mean much to you, please know that there would be no “Mean Girls” without “Clueless.” If you’re too young to remember “Mean Girls,” go away because I hatechu and your youth.
