Revlon's latest offering into the BB cream category—Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream™ Skin Perfector—will have you confident that skin looks flawless and radiant, in any light. It hydrates like a moisturizer, smoothes skin like a primer, covers like a foundation, and blurs flaws like a concealer, all while protecting skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 30. In celebration of beauty's greatest modern marvel, we've put together a guide to some of the best places to have brunch and go shopping with the ladies in LA. Hit them two at a time, or all at once, but be sure to factor in some quality BB time wherever you are.
Where to Eat Brunch & Shop with the Ladies in LA
A quintessential Venice brunch, Axe puts together healthy things like a nine grain pancake or granola, in addition to asparagus with heirloom tomatoes and English peas. There's also fried egg over creamy polenta or bolognese with housemade pappardelle for something more substantial.
After Axe, head to one of the anchors of the Abbot Kinney shopping stretch, Heist, which stocks all our favorite French labels like Isabel Marant , Jerome Dreyfuss, and Vanessa Bruno as well as stateside offerings from the equally covetable Gary Graham and Raquel Allegra.
After an afternoon of indulgence, it's time to BB with Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream™ Skin Perfector. This Beauty Balm is skincare, makeup, and sunscreen, all rolled into one, affordable package (so you can easily camouflage those bottomless Bloodys). We suggest picking it up at Beverly Connection's City Target—with 99,000 square feet of store, you can make a day of it.
This underrated brunch spot does the simple things really well, with an amazing set of oatmeal pancakes to start. Slow scrambled eggs are decadent, while the biscuits and gravy pack a punch. And of course, the bacon - get the bacon.
After Salt's Cure, check out Roseark, offering the biggest and best selection of unique, edgy, extravagant baubles this city has to offer, including pieces from Jessica Winzelberg, Jennifer Meyer, Karma El Khalil and own Kathy Rose.
This uber-farm produce-driven restaurant by chefs Daniel Mattern and Roxana Jullapat puts on a great brunch, with things like grass-fed beef hash with roasted potatoes, crab quiche with butter lettuce, and a baked pancake with bourbon maple syrup.
Satine has long been the secret of celeb stylists: the gorgeous, airy space is something of a fashion incubator, being one of the first stores to really get behind Alexander Wang. They do wearable, feminine avant garde probably better than anybody. Their current lineup includes a well-edited selection of Lanvin, Margiela, Rick Owens, Yigal Azrouel, Tom Ford and Rachel Comey.
The Sycamore Kitchen
Waiting in line for Karen Hatfield's salted caramel sticky pecan babka is more than worth it. The tomato-onion tart, buttercup bun and rye chocolate chip cookie are all also delicious. Check the great sandwiches too, like the roast turkey, one of the best in town.
American Rag Cie
This one-stop shop for the cutest shoes, the newest dress, the most basic basics and the best remade vintage almost makes spending money too easy (and don't get us started on the denim bar). Added bonus: it's a stone's throw away from The Sycamore Kitchen, making it the perfect after-brunch destination.
This all-day restaurant caters to hotel guests and locals by serving a solid breakfast option, such as short rib hash, poached eggs & prosciutto, and an omelet filled with market vegetables and fontina cheese. And, it's perfect for ladies who work weekends and can only have brunch on off-peak days.
This Eastside Italian restaurant does a great daily breakfast, with dishes like the nutella panino, oven-roasted French toast souffle, smoked salmon pizza, and black kale frittata with onions and goat cheese leading the way. There's a breakfast pizza with speck, mozzarella, tomato sauce and sunny-side up egg, naturally.
Shop for hand-drawn cards, jewelry, books and gifts like eco-friendly wood postcards, animal wall mounts and kitchen accessories, after an Italian-style breakfast at Little Dom's.
