Dramatic Eyes With Glitter Lips At Rodarte A/W ’14

February 16th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Inspired by “delicate and youthful beauty… ephemeral and nostalgic creating a beautiful glow”, the look at Rodarte A/W ’14 was dark, glittery but simply beautiful.

Makeup: James Kaliardos for NARS
Hair: Odile for John Frieda

The skin was first prepped with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and made flawless with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Radiant Creamy Concealer, then set with Pressed Powder. On the eyes, James applied the chocolate shade in the upcoming Dolomites Duo Eyeshadow from the lower lid, lashline and all the way up to the brows, and the lavender shade right in the center of the lid and inner corners, before coating upper lashes with Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara. The cheeks were defined with the new Unlawful Blush (available Fall 2014) and layered with Anguilla Matte Multiple. Finally, models were given two different lip looks – a dark browish berry color and a lighter mauvey pink, thanks to the upcoming Deborah Audacious and Dominique Audacious Lipsticks (available for Fall) and topped with glitter.

To create the gorgeous waves, Odile started by coating hair with Frizz Ease® Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner to prep hair, ensuring it looked healthy and felt hydrated—the perfect canvas for the look. After pulling the hair into two sections and creating two long braids, Odile blew the hair dry to give the hair a subtle wave. Odile then undid the braids and worked Frizz Ease ® Unwind Curls Calming Crème through hair to give it relaxed, carefree texture, concentrating on the ends. Next, Odile took a piece from the side, twisted it and pulled it to the back of the head, securing it with pins and a Rodarte hand-made clip. To finish the look, Odile spritzed Luxurious Volume All-Day Hold Hairspray to give hair touchable, flexible hold.

New Year; Getting Your Skin in Shape for the New Year

January 7th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Welcome to Fab Over Forty New Year; Getting Your Skin in Shape for the New Year

With the new year we vow to get our bodies in shape, have a healthier diet, but what about our skin?  Let’s face it, if you’ve been partying and indulging over the last several months with the holiday season, your skin needs some major TLC, and it doesn’t have to take months to see results. Here are some of my favorite products and what they can do for your skin.

 

Dior’s latest addition to their Capture Totale skincare line is the One Essential Ultra-Detox Treatment Mask.  It doesn’t make sense to pile on all those skincare products if they just sit on the top of your face not working like they are designed to.  According to Dior, this treatment mask eliminates excess skin toxins which accumulate in the skin and suffocate cells, preventing our other age-defying products from working to their full capacity and getting to the heart of the skin’s cells.  Use this once or twice a week after cleansing and before applying your other skin care and see the results quickly.  I received this as a Christmas gift and have used it a couple of times now and love the results.  Your serum and moisturizers will love you for it.

You know the saying “an ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure” – well that holds true for Vitamin C. If you speak with any dermatologist they will always say to use a Vitamin C on your skin like this SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic.  Vitamin C in a stabilized formula gives maximum anti-aging benefits by protecting from free radical damage to the skin, helps build collagen and gives skin a better defense against other environmental factors.  Put this on in the morning after cleansing and wait about two minutes before resuming with other skin care products.  Vitamin C is a must in my skincare regimen.

Awaken tired, puffy, dark eyes with Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Repair Eye Serum.  Not only does this lightweight serum help with fine lines and firmness, the reflective particles in the serum give your eye area an awakened glow.  I recently tried a sample from the beauty counter and was instantly impressed with this serum.  My eye area feels moisturized and the glow diminishes the tired, dark circles I have from lack of sleep.  I will definitely be making this a permanent addition to my skincare routine.

If you’ve been over-indulging, getting less sleep, or are in colder temperatures the skin needs more moisture.  When my skin feels dry and like it needs a big drink of water I turn to Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Replenishing Comfort Cream. This thick, creamy, non-greasy moisturizer brings life back into my dehydrated skin.  ”Comfort” is the perfect name for it, because it’s like wrapping your skin in a blanket of moisture that the skin really needs this time of year.  It has an Omega 3 Phyto complex to give radiance back to the skin.

No matter how tired you or your skin may be, always finish with a sunscreen.  I prefer Aveeno Natural Protection Sunblock Lotion with SPF 30.  This is specially formulated for sensitive skin and protects from both UVA and UVB damaging rays.  It’s oil free and non-whitening, so it doesn’t feel heavy and it doesn’t give your skin that typical SPF white pasty look.  You can put many products on your skin, but nothing protects it as much as sunscreen.

Don’t neglect the rest of your body.  Exfoliating and moisturizing the body is just as important as taking care of the face.  I’ve been using and loving the new Salma Hayek Nuance skincare line at CVS.  I’m just wondering when I’m going to start looking like Salma.  I think my husband is too.  🙂  But in all seriousness, these two products are divine.  The Walnut Body Scrub is finely milled walnut shells to exfoliate the skin and added ingredients like acai, annatto seed and rice bran oil give the skin softness.  Lotion up with the Rosehip Moisturizing Body Lotion, which has rosehip oil for instant relief on dry skin and it has aloe vera and Irish moss extract to soften.

Lastly, don’t forget what a good night sleep can do for your body.  Continual lack of sleep is aging and stressing on the body. Our system rejuvenates and replenishes while we sleep so a good 8 hours not only makes you look better, it is better for your overall health.

Holiday Beauty Gift Guide – All Things Pretty

December 17th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The last holiday beauty gift guide is all things beauty.  I’ve broken it down into a few categories and it starts with makeup products.  I’ve been speaking for several weeks about holiday beauty, but these are ones I haven’t gotten to till now.

With a variety of prices, looking gorgeous was never so easy.

For luxury, the Guerlain Vol de Nuit Powder is the ultimate way to shine and shimmer.   You may think it is a perfume, and although it is scented with Guerlain Vol de Nuit scent, it is a shimmery powder that you can give your body that sexy glow.  $87

Julep The Girlfriend’s Essential Nail Vernis Gift Set includes the two most popular Julep shades in Jennifer and Catherine along with the Essential Cuticle Oil.  $28

Laura Mercier Twilight Nail Lacquer – Step away from the traditional red with the deep violet shimmery shade.  Fun and quickly becoming a classic all in one.  $18

Put all your makeup in one place with Tarte Puttin’ on the Glitz Clutch and Color Collection.  This cute silver clutch contains beauty to go on the inside.  Three interchangeable color palettes with a mirror and pockets for credit cards and a spot for the gloss and you are sure to look beautiful all night.   The palettes range from sultry, sophisticated and earthy. $48

Mark Glitz & Gloss Mini Purse and Go  $14 gets you this cute little holiday-inspired clutch with 4 mini lip glosses.  From clear to deep tones there is a lip gloss in there to fit every beauty look.

Head-to-Toe-Skintastic!  Getting your skin and hair prepped before putting on makeup and going out is top priority.  Here are some of my favorites for the holidays.

Votre Vu It Kit is $86, but has $143 worth of product inside.  Included is the delicious SnapDragon Beauty Beverage full of goodness and tasty too (wonderful if you have a winter cold too), the Duette hand lotion and lip balm in one – brilliant idea and the Tout le Monde eye gelée for those party-tired eyes, and its all encased in a tote.

Venus Embrace Girl to Goddess Essential Kit comes in a fun printed zip bag and includes a Venus razor, shaving cream and Secret deodorant.  Now those are essentials every girl can use for less than $15.

A perfect stocking stuffer is the holiday-exclusive Shiseido Honey Cake bars of soap.  At only $7.50 each these are a cult classic since 1956!  The French-milled soaps with honey give you silky-soft skin.  They are available in either the red or green package.

Becca & Mars Winter Ginger 2-Piece Hand Candy Sugar Scrub Set.  Keep your hands in tip-top shape with Winter Night and Lemon Ginger Hand Candies scrubs.  Believe me, your hands will thank you.

What can I say, I love, love, love the Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare line and especially the Cleanse & Polish Hot Cleanser. This comes in a holiday limited edition size for $32.50 and includes a must-have muslin cloth.

Who doesn’t carry a L’Occitane hand cream in their handbag?  Really?  You don’t?  Well, you should.  And with this Hand Cream Bouquet gift set of 6 scented hand creams, you can give one or two as stocking stuffers and keep the rest to yourself.   Your desk drawer or handbag will never be without again.  $50

During the holiday season all the busy parties, shopping and extra things we do can take a toll on the skin.   Be sure to give your face a mask treatment, and this award winning Guinot Hydra Sensitive Face Mask is just the ticket.  Protect your skin from winter’s irritations and stress factors of the season with vitamin E, Sweet Almond Oil, chamomile extract, oak and Epaline and Centella extract protect and replenish your skin.  $39 available at spas and online.

Hair needs some extra lovin’ this season too and Leonor Greyl has this hair set for $107.25 (25% off).  It includes a nourishing shampoo, a conditioning treatment scented with Indian Jasmine Flower and silicone free anti-frizz styling cream.  Made with natural ingredients that your hair will love.

Hydra Mar is an anti-aging and antioxidant line of body products that are paraben-free and enriched with vitamins, and sea minerals. There is a body scrub, body wash and body lotion that will leave your skin feeling silky from head to toe and smelling fresh and lovely too.

Kate Somerville Glow in the New Year kit for $95 includes my favorite face exfoliant – ExfoliKate and Tanning Towelettes.  Your skin will look fresh and healthy when attending all those holiday parties.

DiorShow Artists Skincare Tips for Women over 40

October 21st, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

With a special offer for Fab Over 40 readers!

The fabulous DiorShow artists put together a list of skincare and makeup tips that are targeted towards women over 40.   Today the focus is on skincare and their advice and tomorrow we will discuss their makeup and beauty advice.

  1. As women mature, the desire is to keep skin looking healthy and radiant and to slow the signs of aging.  Keeping skin protected and moisturized is a MUST.  Using a serum is essential.  Serums penetrate more deeply into the skin where damage occurs and have a higher concentration of active ingredients.  High potency anti-oxidants and a moisturizer that replenishes and retains moisture in the skin will give a youthful glow.  An exceptional skincare treatment, like Dior’s L’or de Vie is a perfect choice.  Regenerative molecules from the legendary Chateau d’Yquem infuse this luxurious line of products and protect skin with the most powerful anti-oxidants available without a prescription, while correcting visible signs of again and strengthening skin from within.
  2. A new treatment innovation is the concept of detoxifying the skin cells.  Each day, billions of toxins build up in the cells and without toxin elimination, no skincare treatment can be completely effective.  Dior’s Capture Totale One Essential is the ‘daily detox’ for your skin.  Used before you usual skincare, it boots the effectiveness of ANY skincare product that follows.  The Dior exclusive technology, Detoxinyl, recycles toxins and turns them into proteins which the skin uses as a building block to repair.  The skin needs proteins to be healthy!
  3. Since mature skin tends to lose luster and look dry, radiance is key to maintaining a nice youthful appearance. Using Capture Totale Radiance Enchancer before foundation or even mixing a few pumps INTO your foundation, give a brighter look.  It also helps to keep the base from settling into lines and wrinkles.
Because I was involved in the Beauty Bash in NYC a few weeks back and I mentioned some of my favorite Dior products, Dior is kind enough to offer all Fab Over Forty readers an offer from their website www.dior.com  Any purchase on Dior.com you will receive a free mini mascara!   Just enter BEAUTYBASH2011 at checkout to get your souvenir.  This offer is good thru October 2011.  Also, remember they offer free shipping with a $50 or more purchase and you get your DiorDiva points!
