Welcome to The Beauty Look Book blog! This blog is dedicated to reviewing mid to high-end luxury beauty products including cosmetics, fragrances, home scents, skincare and bodycare with some lifestyle elements mixed in. I started The Beauty Look Book in 2009 while I was completing my MBA in finance and marketing. My studies in business plan development, product innovation and social media marketing inspired me to launch this blog as a creative outlet to share my passion for beauty, fashion and photography.
This blog focuses primarily on product reviews including swatches, product comparisons and personal thoughts on what I’ve tested. For more about me, you can read a few interviews on Barney’s The Window, Feather Factor and Makeup and Beauty Blog.

I have medium-toned olive skin. I tan easily and since I live in sunny San Diego, I get a lot of sun. My foundation color changes frequently, but a few favorites include the NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Groenland and St. Moritz, Diorskin Airflash in 201 or 300, and Tom Ford Waterproof Foundation Concealer in Bisque, Natural or Sable.

Since the start of my blog I’ve used experimented with several different cameras and also use my iPhone for some photographs. The vast majority of the photos on this blog have been shot by me.
