Q: I feel like I’ve had the same makeup routine since I was 14: foundation/tinted moisturizer, good undereye concealer and then the same muted brown eyeshadows with the expected highlighter on the inner part of the eye. Do you have ideas/tips for new ways to mix it up? I feel like I’m a paint-by-numbers...
Q: Truly, I need fashion answers (more specifically—HELP!) in every direction: I’m pregnant. I’m most perplexed by the maternity skirt. It is not a good thing …unless I’m missing some secret key element? Perhaps pregnant ladies should only wear the ever-loving hell out of their J Brand maternity jeggings (which I’ve been doing) and tight-inthe-middle/loose-everywhere-else dresses? Getting dressed for work has become a daily chore.
Q: Can winter boots be stylish?
Q: I have dry skin. How often should I exfoliate my face—every day? Once a week? What do you recommend? And what time of the day, morning or night?
Q: I rarely blow-dry my hair, but when I do it ends up looking frizzy. What is the one tip/product I could use to avoid this?
Q: Does laser hair removal work—and what do you think about at-home removal?
Q: I have been seeing a lot of great coats, but which ones are warm enough to get me through winter's coldest days?
Q: The deliberately contrasting, deliberately visible bra used to be a fashion "mistake" but now seems to be mainstreaming. Can I wear this to work? How can I do it so I don't look like I got dressed in the dark? Is this just for hipsters?
Q: I always put on scented deodorant and perfume. I have never tried to match their scents and have no idea if they clash. I mean, I can't smell me! Is there a deodorant that doesn't fight the smell of my perfume?
Q: I love my freckles. But my blemishes obviously don't inspire the same affection. What foundation evens skin tone but doesn't cover my freckles?
