Winter with Whateverishly's Stella Glass

The winter will not stale style, and I'll be damned if we end up looking tore up because its 10 degrees out. I asked my friends over at Whateverishly.com to give us some tips on looking fly this winter.

A little about the gems Stella and Coco, they are Brooklynites that keep us on our toes with music, movies and culture- sans b.s. 
Since becoming a North Eastern newbie, I've been chillin' with these lovelies and experiencing the good life that is BK and NYC  ( dining is to die for!).

 Now introducing Stella Glass!

L: Define Brooklyn Beauty 
SG:Brooklyn Beauty- means no flat ironed hair, not going out with a face full of makeup.
If Brooklyn is Manhattan's funkier, artier (and broker) sister, the makeup has to match the vibe. that means no flat ironed hair and foundation-heavy skin. light makeup, dewy clean skin and a couple of products that highlight your best features.

L:What are your makeup staples this winter?
SG: Moisturizer, moisturizer, moisturizer! Kiehls with SPF for day and Origins Never Say Dry at night. More than anything else, I hate the feeling of dry skin and I don't even leave my house without serious lotion. Other than that Diorskin pressed powder in Shade 02, tarte cheek stain in flush and Diorshow mascara in dark brown. And michael kors perfume. ive been wearing it since freshman year of college and it smells different in the summer and the winter. I love it.

L:It's a Snow day, I'm probably listening to...
SG:Broadcast "The Noise Made By People"
Beach House "Devotion"
La femme D'argent by Air
Brad Mehldau
The Epochs "10 Billion Light Years of Solitude" and the self-titled album
KRS-One "I Got Next"

L:How do you keep your hair so fresh at 30 degrees?
SG:Basically I havent been. i just got my hair cut last week and the stylist told me I had to "concentrate" on 'rehydrating" my hair so I've been deep conditioning with bumble and bumble superrich and then using a terax leave in conditioner called Hydrate Botanica that smells like chamomile. otherwise its just a matter of blowing it out and putting the some Bumble and Bumble grooming creme in to give some texture.

L:What's the best piece of recession beauty advice you can give?
SG:Recession beauty advice is dont splurge on anything other than foundation powder and mascara--virtually everything else you can buy cheap and its not such a big deal.

L:My current makeup hero is?
SG:My makeup hero is consistently the good people at Dior and francois nars as well. His whole philosophy wasnt about covering shit up, it was about enhancing what was already there, and drawing attention to what you love. thats what I love about beauty products. Also I have to take this opportunity to say declare my love for Fresh's Pomegranate Conditioner. Leaves your hair silky and it smells like heaven.

Thanks for helping us look abfab this season!
