June 2010 Archives

6a00e55402cdec88340120a5b5d338970b-800wi.jpgNow that summer is officially here, and we all know that tanning is a BIG no-no, we sun smart gals try our best to fake the bake. Sunless tanners can give you a golden glow, but sometimes we just don’t have the time to apply and dry.

Tarte’s Park Ave Princess may be an oldie, but it’s definitely a goodie. A few swipes on the face, décolleté, and even down the front of the legs yields a believable bronze. Not too ruddy, not too muddy - PAP is perfect for fairer skins that need a touch of “sun”.

Tip: For a believable glow, lightly dust over the points where sun would naturally hit—cheeks/bridge of nose, forehead, chin, swell of chest, and front of the shins.

$29, Sephora.

At the Hollywood premiere of her new film, Jonah Hex, Megan Fox was spotted rocking some seriously sleek, shiny old Hollywood curls, courtesy of Frédéric Fekkai stylist Renato Campora.

02_megan_fox.jpgTo create the retro style, Campora first applied Fekkai Full Blown Volume Styling Whip ($23), and blow-dried Megan’s hair using a round brush. After creating a deep side part, he used a one-inch barrel curing iron and set the curl into pin curls to cool. After about 15 minutes, he took out the pin curls and brushed them out until they were perfectly placed over her dress. Finally, Campora spritzed on Fekkai Coiff Sheer Hold Hairspray ($35) for lasting hold.

0310-lady-gaga-beauy-4-de.jpgA foundation that looks natural, floats on top of the skin, doesn’t crease or flake, and lasts all day long? That’s a pretty tall order.

Enter Face Atelier’s Ultra Foundation Pro. Ultra has been a staple in many top makeup artist’s kits for years, and it’s easy to see why. The result is purely flawless.

Ultra Foundation is  hydrating yet oil-free, and it obscures tiny lines and pores to ensure a smooth finish. The foundation has a built in primer, thanks to the super sophisticated, silicone-based formula.   Another bonus - it sets without powder, preserving the youthful, dewy finish.

The silicone technology in Ultra Foundation forms a lightweight, breathable second skin that is both moisture and oil resistant.  It’s non-comedogenic and wont clog pores or collect in creases.

When we tried it, skin instantly has a flawless, airbrushed effect — no effort required. The foundation really allows skin to show through while still concealing every imperfection. For the best effect, apply with a damp sponge (like the BeautyBlender). We couldn’t believe our eyes… baby skin, even, smooth, gorgeous. Definitely worth the hype.

The “pro” version is just a more convenient size of the same popular Ultra Foundation…perfect for your makeup kit, cosmetic bag, or for travel!


stylebakerybeauty:images:philosophy:boostercaps.jpg For a long time I was afraid to get on the Retinol train because I thought it would be too harsh for my skin, but it’s definitely one of those ingredients that skincare experts agree plays a role in anti-aging. So I finally took the plunge and have added a Retinol product into my skin-care routine. Right now, I’m using philosophy booster caps. It took me a little bit to figure out how frequent to use, but I really am liking the results. I use once a week—I’m incorporating this in with my regular exfoliating products and face masks too; it’s a whole process—and I’m noticing a difference with regular use.

Available at Sephora (60 capsules for $50).
