Shop the shelves at Whole Foods for some of my beauty favorites!

February 11th, 2015 — 7:00pm


Thank you to the lovely ladies at cupcakesandcashmere.com for asking me to share some of my favorite, less expensive, non-toxic beauty picks. Luckily Whole Body (the section of Whole Foods that doesn’t sell food!) stocks a ton of my go-to’s.  Below you’ll find a portion of the piece cupcakesandcashmere.com posted, and the link to read the full story.

When I first became pregnant, I started to make a conscious effort to incorporate more clean products into my life (aside from my candy addiction, which was the only way I could have survived those nine months.) I researched everything, from our household supplies to my beauty products, to see where I could make improvements. But since the world of ‘green’ makeup is still pretty foreign to me, I decided to reach out to an expert. Katey Denno is a makeup artist who’s passionate about clean products and is also the person behind Gwyneth Paltrow’s natural glow and Mindy Kaling’s perfect smoky eye. If you’re intimidated by your local health store’s beauty aisle, read on for Katey’s favorite picks:



“Deliciously scented and non-stinging, this spray bottle doubles as perfume for me and my clients all the time.”
“The newest facial wipes from Burt’s are all natural, deliciously scented, and highly effective at removing makeup without drying skin or leaving a filmy residue.
“Easy to blend into foundation, face oil, and even leg moisturizer, this concentrate is a great bronzy shade that can transform so many skin tones into sun-kissed glow.
“I love this shade! it’s such a rich peachy pink that can be buffed into the skin to look like a glow from within.”
“100% natural, gorgeous rich pigment that’s super easy to apply (and long lasting!). I use them all the time on my clients and on myself.”

Thanks again, ladies!

My current bedside table must-haves.

March 8th, 2012 — 5:09am

I’m so sleepy, and I should be in bed, after having spent another long, but great day on set, and then going out to see a friend’s band play in the East Village here in NYC tonight. However,  I just walked into my bedroom, saw these products so perfectly – and accidentally – arranged on my bedside table, and thought: I have to share these tonight. The best part about them is that they’re all from companies who share a focus on creating products with natural, non-toxic, and/or organic ingredients. Go green beauty market, go!

I’ve been sleeping *so* well lately. I love falling asleep to the scent of Tata Harper’s Aromatic Bedtime Treatment (I often don’t even put it on me, I just inhale deeply from the bottle a few times and it gets my brain right into lullaby mode) , and waking to still enjoy the smell of my super soft skin, thanks to  the Dr. Hauschka Lemon Lemongrass lotion (not to be confused with the Lemon Oil, or Lemon Lotion – this is new and smells BEYOND incredible) and Rose Oil that I mix and massage all over me. But what’s closest to my bed, is one of my all-time favorites, and the last product I use every night. I never go to sleep in the Winter without covering my hands and feet with Weleda Skin Food, which keeps them baby soft. Everyone who works with me knows that I’m never far from a tube of this amazingly scented, super rich lotion. There’s one here, one in my work makeup kit, and one in my purse at all times.

I should finish tomorrow’s post on the amazing red-lip look I gave Christy Turlington to walk the carpet on Monday night, but I don’t think my eyes will focus for much longer! I promise to have that ready for you very soon.

If I can finish this post in the next 2 minutes, I’ll still have just enough energy and brain power to wind down by reading a few more pages of the Patti Smith book. Night, night!
