We’re perpetually on the hunt for the perfect highlighter and never seem to find it— this little highlighter is too glittery, this little highlighter is too greasy, and this little highlighter has us streaking all the way home. What’s a girl to do?

Enter Vapour Organic Beauty— their new Halo Body Spotlight imparts a luminous, lit-from-within glow that looks natural, and more importantly, doesn’t leave glitter bomb fallout on our cheeks. It’s the perfect shimmer to counteract dull, lifeless winter skin, and can be used on the face, shoulders, arms, décolletage.. the possibilities are endless.

Halo also delivers potent anti-oxidants into the skin to heal and protect it against environmental elements and pollutants.  It’s made with the anti-inflammatory Frankincense, moisturizing Lotus Flower and Tulsi, an ancient healing herb, and is 70% organic.

Added bonus? The packaging is so pretty: a steel blue-gray shimmer… and it smells awesome too! Sort of a light, fruity smell that makes us want to bite it…but we won’t. ;)

Halo comes in one universal shade, Moonlight, suitable for all ages and skin tones.

Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer has taken the market by storm. The multi-tasking primer neutralizes eyelid tone, provides a smooth canvas for color, and keeps shadow vibrant all day. The added benefit of hydrolized hybiscus extract keeps eyes looking young by warding off fine lines. We tried it under shadow during the 12 hours days we’ve been keeping at Fashion Week, and it seriously gives a certain purple-bottled potion a run for it’s money.

Trends can be intimidating, especially during Fashion Week- not only are the models 16 year old goddesses, but they have the best in makeup, hair, and design backstage dressing them up like dolls. How can we compete?

Thankfully, as we jet from backstage to backstage this season, we keep hearing the same phrases used over and over again: clean, fresh, organic, and “like they did it themselves”. Good news for us, who don’t have the beauty team following us around all day ( a girl can dream!)

072.JPGBackstage at the Charlotte Ronson show, we noticed some really chic looks, which thankfully are super easy to re-create at home. Here’s how to get the look:

For the face, Sephora PRO artist Gilbert Soliz told us that Charlotte wanted the girls to look as if  they’d done their own faces. The skin was kept dewy using Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid Makeup, and then sculpted with taupe powder to lift the face. The eyes were then given a monochromatic brown smokey look using Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown. The shadow was applied to the lid and then winged out with a brush, followed by DiorShow mascara enhance lashes. The eyebrows were kept natural and only lightly groomed, and lips were left nude, touched only by clear balm to enhance (Sephora FACE Very Sexy Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 15).

The hair was prepped with a lightweight mousse (Tresemme 24hr Body), and then dried with a round brush for volume before being sectioned off and wrapped lightly around a barrel iron. The curls were then finger combed to loosen the wave, and spritzed with a dry shampoo (Tresemme Fresh Start) to absorb leftover styling products.
