Advanced Beauty Secrets from Alice Carey

Yesterday I met up with Alice Carey in her secret garden courtyard in Greenwich Village. Alice was wearing a snappy vintage men’s shirt which she accessorized with bakelite bangles and a silk white rose. After a wonderful cup of iced tea Alice and I went for a walk in the West Village, where we spotted Debra Rapoport. I asked the ladies about their summer style secrets. Check out the video below to hear about the importance of a great lipstick and cool layers.

Many of you have been asking that I share some of the beauty products used by the Advanced Style Ladies. Alice is most definitely a CLAIRINS girl, but she also partial to products by BOOTS the Chemist, UK that are now carried at Target. Her new favorites are Lift & Luminate day serum and night serum. As she is a writer, her beauty products don’ stray too far from her beloved books. To check out some of Alice’s writing on the Huffington Post CLICK HERE and her wonderful novel HERE. You can also find more great pictures of Alice in the Advanced Style book.

  • She is amazing <3

  • Good advice, especially the lipstick..

  • these ladies are fantastic. their style is like art work. though I agree on the whole lipstick thing, I'm yet to find a colour that works for me. really should start putting in the effort to find it, as it's such a great way to add extra colour.

  • Love seeing Alice with her wonderful flame hair and colorful outfits!
