All dressed up and no where to go?
Yah, we feel you.
Keeping up appearances took on a whole new meaning during the COVID shutdown. Resourcefulness kicked in, leading us to exploring new ways to maintain our regular beauty routine.
These “essential” powerhouse products performed brilliantly during the quarantine – and just might be here to stay. – Cece Woods, Editor in Chief
HOUSE OF LASHES – This find was a goldmine. I am a complete convert to this brand (defecting from Sephora!) Made from the most natural looking synthetic hair with a flexible band for comfortable wear. $12.00 Target.com
L’OREAL MAGIC ROOT COVER-UP – Get lost greys! Magic Root Cover Up conceals grays in seconds for flawless roots. Get seamless coverage with their lightweight formula that leaves no smudging or sticky residue when dry, & that’s ammonia and peroxide free. $9.99 Target.com
THE ORDINARY – AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution – This miracle peel from cult budget brand The Ordinary offers deeper exfoliation also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines. $7.20 Ulta.com
RIMMEL STAY GLOSSY LIP GLOSS – Long lasting lightweight shine in Dorchester Rose gives a natural, dewy look to your lips (and even a little visual plump)! $4.69 Target.com
KISS ACRYLIC NUDE – Easy to use and strong like salon acrylics but have a bubble-free, flawless finish and are thinner at the cuticle for a seamless look. I have a newfound respect for my time – especially when this manicure is 20 minutes max. $4.99 Target.com

Editor in Chief Cece Woods considers herself the “accidental activist”. Having spent most her childhood on sands of Zuma Beach, Cece left Southern California in her early 20’s, but it was only a matter of time before she returned to the idyllic place that held so many wonderful memories from her youth. In 2006, she made the journey back to Malibu permanently, the passion to preserve it was ignited. In 2012, Cece became involved in local environmental and political activism at the urging of former husband Steve Woods, a resident for more than 4o years. Together, they were involved in many high-profile environmental battles including the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project, Measure R, Measure W, and more. Cece founded influential print and online media publications, 90265 Magazine in 2013 highlighting the authentic Malibu lifestyle, and The Local Malibu, an online news media site with a strategic focus on environmental and political activism. In the summer of 2018, Cece broke multiple global stories including the law enforcement cover-up in the Malibu Creek State Park Shootings, and is considered by major news media as a trusted authority on Malibu.
