You Complete Me: Stephanie Lake's Cat-Eye CreatorEver love a product so much it makes you feel whole? You’re not alone, which is why we’re having our favorite tastemakers spill the must-have items they can’t live without.

Who: Stephanie Lake, PhD. @stephanielakedesign
Where: Minneapolis, MN
By Day: Founder and designer at Stephanie Lake Design, a line of extravagant, one-of-a-kind jewelry incorporating antique elements. My pugs and my three-month-old, Odette, are the only ones allowed in my studio while I design.
By Night: Old-school hostess. My husband and I love to spoil everyone we can with dinners and little parties. I expect guests to dress to impress and leave with stories to tell.
Style: High Glam but I insist on easy opulence: everything full-length and flowing, anchored with heels and jewels.

You Complete Me:  Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Eyeliner in Noir, $34
In my 20s, I finally realized that I could dress and adorn myself any way that I wanted to, and with that came a classic cat-eye at all times. It adds the right attitude and polish, and this fine brush and deep pigment are perfect for creating the line. I spend five minutes, tops, on my hair and makeup, and I love that with one quick swoop my face is practically done."
