Gorgeous actress and daughter of the famous Genesis lead singer Phil Collins, Lily Collins was recently featured in the September issue of Glamour magazine. Hand picked by the guest editor, the stylish Victoria Beckham, she was featured in a hair-how-to spread rocking the upcoming Fall 2012 hair trends. My personal fav was the throwback to Brigitte Bardot with a half bouffant/half pony. The secret to achieving this look is obviously a lot of volume and back combing along with a little help from Frederic Fekkai's Coiff Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel. Apply to damp hair with an emphasis on roots for extra lift and then throughout for added texture.
The other look Lily wore was smooth and accessorized. Any hair style can be dressed up and made cuter with a headband or barrette but to really smooth down frizzies for perfectly accessory placement you need Frederic Fekkai's Coiff Ironless Straightening Balm. You don't need a professional blow-out to keep flyways at bay, simply apply this non chemical balm throughout damp hair and then blow dry holding your brush very straight

Starting a new relationship with a facial oil can be difficult. It's a word we tend to fear and one that is more safely applied to hair or the body than our product sensitive face. Oil to most of us equals breakout but little do we know that facial oils can hold the key to solving many of the problems we've been trying different creams and serums to solve. Flip through any beauty section in the latest fashion magazines and you'll hear about facial oils. Take for example the latest September issue of W magazine which happens to be the most popular edition of the year as it showcases all the best in beauty and fashion for the fall season and the following year. We were excited to see that one of our latest additions, the RMS Beauty Oil was included in the 'Chic Slicks' section as an organic facial oil that goes above and beyond it's competitors because it balances and moisturizes the face gently and naturally with natural mixed organic oils such as jojoba, tamanu and rose hip!
I always look forward to reading Marie Claire's 'Beauty Desk' feature to see what the beauty editor is going nuts over. This month, two amazing products we carry at b-glowing caught Beauty Director Ying Chu's eye.
Erno Laszlo's Morning Beauty Rescue is like a Tylenol for your skin when you've had a long night or stressful morning. It's packed full of ingredients like Vitamin E to brighten and rejuvenate your skin and also moonlights as a makeup primer. I'm a lover of anything that creates a subtle glow and from the moment you open the packaging and look upon the blushing pink formulation with luminous liquid pearls staring back you will know its powers. Erno Laszlo specifically created this product for an actress who had a personality that was larger than life, Marilyn Monroe, and then re-formulated to address the skincare needs of the modern woman.
Also given some Beauty Desk love was the new Lipstick Cases from Paul & Joe's 2012 Autumn Love Story collection. These new mix and match nail polish cases will be available to order soon although here you can see a gorgeous sneak peak. You'll literally be able to 'dress' your lipsticks up by popping one of the lipstick refills in your designated new case. All of the prints used on Paul & Joe cosmetics packaging is taken straight from the Paul & Joe apparel line!
