I love when my friend Suzy comes to visit me in California. Splitting her time between the posh resort town of Aspen and bustling Manhattan, style expert and author Susan Redstone keeps me current on critical fashion advice and inspiration. (I was so relieved when Suzy gave my favorite Ugg boots a nod of approval—yes, they’re still a fashion “Do”!)
Over a bottle of deliciously light Pinot Grigio from Cellar360 Paso Robles, Suzy shared her favorite budget beauty buys, which she recently touted on a Fox TV segment. These are quality products that do everything from maximize to moisturize—for far less cash than pricey department store brands.
Suzy’s top picks for brides include Maybelline’s Pulse Perfection™ Vibrating Mascara; Orly’s Once Upon A Time and Matte Couture nail color (“Matte polish is very ‘in’ right now”); and Sealed with a Cure lip gloss in a shimmering pale pink with gold flecks; it’s pretty, paraben-free and packed with lip-friendly botanical ingredients—and 20% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.
For more of Suzy’s fashion wisdom, have a look at her book, Just Try It On, a smart seasonal guide of when to buy what—with a whole chapter devoted to weddings!
