LA based artist Elizabeth Huey creates intricate, gorgeous paintings that explore human connection and healing—two themes that are particularly important today. Huey draws inspiration from her fascination with history and psychology and is presently constructing portraits of Marie Curie, Edgar Cayce and Ray and Charles Eames. When she is not in her studio, you can find her swimming or at a sound bath—or visiting estate sales and flea markets to collect source material.
Some things Elizabeth loves:
"This fall I plan on converting my foyer into an ethereal space with Calico Wallpaper’s exquisite marbling (pictured). I’m crazy about my new coffee table from Brooklyn-based Bower—the cylindrical tables meld plexiglass as well as marble in surprising colors. Doug McCullough’s consoles, beds and case pieces weave linoleum with wood veneers to create functional works of art. They are truly one of a kind." 
"Frequently overshadowed by larger institutions, two of my favorite art museums are the Norton Simon in Pasadena and Isabella Stewart Gardner in Boston. Both offer the kind of quiet intimacy that allows for studying the compositions and colors of artists such as Fra Angelico, Rembrandt or Braque (pictured)."
"Home tours provide a glimpse into the past through spatial arrangements and special objects, and the guides are usually equipped with extraordinary anecdotes. I thoroughly enjoyed touring Dumbarton Oaks in Washington DC, Clara Barton House in Glen Echo, MD, and Manitoga, Russel Wright’s Home in Philipstown, NY(pictured)."
"If you are in need of clarity, optimism or space to shed a few tears, gift yourself a session with Erin Smith of Vardo Tarot, who I met two years ago when I moved to LA. Set up in Atwater Village most Sundays, her gypsy caravan offers a warm ambiance to compliment her revelatory readings."

This pick comes courtesy of my good friend Jessica Matlin, the beauty and health director at Teen Vogue and co-host of the Fat Mascara podcast, who always tells me about the beauty stuff I didn't know I needed until I did, like this lipstick. —Marina
Take it away Jess:
"I love pinky-nude lipstick: It looks polished without being try-hard, and there isn't a single occasion where it doesn't feel right. That's why I've got about four dozen tubes in my kit right now. Lately, I just keep reaching for 
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Penelope Pink. At $34, it's a lip investment, but that rich neutral color and creamy finish just can't be duped. Believe me—I've looked."
