MAKE BEAUTY. ICONIC: Linda Rodin

Posted on 10/25/2013

Our BEAUTY ICON, Rodin Olio Lusso’s Linda Rodin is a natural—both at what she does and how she does it. She craves simple skincare with natural ingredients that fight impurities while recovering genuine beauty.

Coming from a style background, we were eager to learn about how the two worlds collide and how they can work together, especially when it comes to b-glowing brands Linda loves!

Describe the perfect Saturday in NYC. 
Waking up late, having a cappuccino and going with Winky to the flea market. And having nothing else to do the rest of the day. 

As someone who's worked both actively in fashion and now beauty, how important is it that these two styles complement each other?
Well, I think I was very lucky to have been first in the fashion business. It enabled me to have access to the best models, makeup and hair stylists in the world, so I could let them try my products. That's how the buzz happened. Word of mouth 

What is the best beauty advice you've ever received? 
Always keep your skin clean and fresh

If you were stuck with one piece of makeup what would it be?
Lipstick, for sure

From one woman to the next, whom do you admire? 
I admire women who juggle careers with their families, women who make a difference in the world by helping other people, and women who allow themselves to not be too affected by how they "should" look or feel. It's all right to be yourself. 

Linda’s b-glowing Product Picks:

Art of Shaving, Ocean Kelp—for the men in my life
butter London—love the colours!
BY TERRY—so creamy, especially the new moisturizing #301 lipstick
Japonesque, Manicure Set and Artisan Tweezer-Slant. I love japonesque sets of all kinds
Paul & Joe, eye colors CS. I adore Paul & Joe packaging 
Peter Thomas Roth, Ultra-Lite, Oil-Free Sunblock. Keeps my skin protected but not greasy
RGB—hip and gorgeous
Deborah Lippman—wonderful colors. 
Mason Pearson, Pocket Boar Bristle Brush.

butter London Illusionist Collection Mani

Posted on 10/24/2013

Shop b-glowing.

Our Shadow Illusions mani is a super sleek and easy way to use this new collection to create a look with depth and a little mystery. These colors are great for fall, and add a vampy futuristic look to your nails. The deep purple of the bramble really complements the almost holographic oil spill that is petrol, creating an indigo-violet effect. With a quick glance at the nails, they even appear 3D. How cool is that?

  • For this simple mani, all you need is base/top coat and the new Illusionist collection. We used the color bramble and the top coat petrol.
  • Always start with clean, buffed and filed nails, and to ensure your mani lasts, don’t forget to push those cuticles back.
  • First apply a thin even base coat to each nail and let set to achieve a smooth base.
  • Next apply 1 coat of bramble to each nail. You can do two coats if there are spots, but because you are going to layer, you don’t want too much lacquer buildup. This is a very opaque color so one coat should suffice.
  • Wait for your first coat of bramble to dry before applying the sheer purple topcoat petrol.
  • For this mani, we want to give the illusion of a shadow to give depth to the iridescence of the petrol lacquer. To achieve this, start very carefully toward the bottom of the nail near the cuticle and leave ¼ inch strip of bramble. This will be your shadow. You can use tape to mark this off if you do not feel comfortable free-handing it.
  • You want to pull directly up from the line you have created to the free edge of the nail. Make sure to do two coats and to start your second coat from the same line.
  • Once both coats of petrol have dried, add a shiny top coat to seal in your new look!

Anxious to get the look? Shop butter London now.

The jar packs a lot of magic, as it brightens under your eyes while battling dark circles. It’s lightweight and delicate—everything you need after having a night that was anything but that.

To make those eyes pop, Ilia just released a new mascara in four beautiful shades. Your lashes will be strengthened (and lengthened) thanks to this natural mascara. It’s long-lasting, flake-free, and conditioning, to boot.

Ilia also revamped its wildly popular Lip Conditioners and Lipsticks by adding new shades. You can now grab Lust for Life—a fall limited edition mulberry color—in a Lip Conditioner, and Perfect Day—a fall limited edition toned-down coral color—in a Lipstick.

Peter Thomas Roth is also contributing to a beautiful month with its Neuroliquid Volufill Youth Moisturizing Hydra-Gel.

Top Picks for Blushing Beauties

Posted on 10/16/2013

Shop blushes here.

Adding a little color to your cheeks help define cheekbones and can even make your eyes pop. Blushes—from neutral to daring—can really awaken your look.

We’ve come a long way since the days of having to pinch our cheeks to achieve that flushed color, and besides being thankful for now having beautiful options to replace that particular technique, we’re especially excited for the five following brands.

RMS Lip2Cheek in modest: This is a great color for fall, especially because berry cheeks are on trend at the moment. It adds a nice, natural pop of color to the apples of the cheek, and, bonus, it can be used on lips for too!

IT Cosmetics - Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks: This product works on everyone and gives the look of healthy, flushed cheeks. Designed by plastic surgeons with anti-aging benefits, this is another double-duty product.

Paul & Joe Cheek Color Refill in Cinema 04: This blush is a must-have for those who love a punchy coral blush. It’s easily blendable and can also be used to slightly contour. A little shimmer gives a radiant finish.

BY TERRY Blush Terrybly in Erotic Pink: When you want something a little less natural, this blush will definitely make a statement. Nothing too over the top, but this bubble gum pink is very feminine and always playful.

Ilia Multi-Stick in Cheek to Cheek: This blush has a few more brown undertones that look great on very pale skin or olive complexions. You can adjust the coverage and intensity of the color with the easy-to-apply stick design.

Cult Classic Beauty: Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist

Posted on 10/11/2013

Shop b-glowing's Cult Classic Picks.

We love introducing devotees to new brands and products, especially those that have a strong cult following. In our Cult Classic Beauty Picks boutiques, we've taken the guesswork out of trying new lines by hand-selecting our favorite products in SkincareMakeupFragranceHair CareBath + Body, and Men's.

Right now, we’re obsessed with the Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist—Lavender & Acacia. Not only is the bottle totally beautiful (and completely worthy of prime real estate on your bedside table), but the scent is also calming. Going into winter, it’s easy to get wrapped up in daily obligations that’ll only feel more demanding with the cold weather and darkening skies (sometimes before you even get off work!). So when you finally get to rest your pretty head on your pillow, you’re craving utter relaxation.

Just a few sprays of this mist on your pillow or sheets will fill the room with a subtle lavender scent. It’s made with purifying essential oils of lavender, mandarin, Ravensera, and Tea Tree, which all help produce serotoin—that wonderful chemical your brain releases that helps you feel sleepy. Both your mind and body will feel relaxed, carrying you into a restorative sleep. Who doesn’t need more beauty sleep anyway?

Unwinding at night is an important step in not only your beauty routine, but in your health and wellness routine, too. Sleep tight, so you wake up ready to conquer your day.

Ready for a great night’s sleep? Shop Le Couvent des Minimes Good Night Pillow Mist here.

For this and more Cult Classic Beauty Picks, shop our boutiques at b-glowing.com.

Editor’s Note: The spray is affordable and luxurious, and most of all, it seriously chills me out on nights that I’m anxious for whatever reason, or having a hard time sleeping due to a busy brain. I don’t know what I ever did without it!

Top Picks: Protection for Your Tresses

Posted on 10/10/2013

Shop Styling Products here.

It takes a lot of heat for your hair to look flawless—from drying to styling. But when you jump right in, you’re not giving your delicate hair follicles a fighting chance.

To prevent damage, and for a better overall look, use a heat protectant. When heat is applied directly to the hair, the hair shaft opens, making it vulnerable to damage or even color loss. But protectants cover the follicle so it stays sealed and the shaft maintains moisture, so your hair’s texture, shine, and fluidity will stay gorgeous (plus your heating tools will work better!).

With cold mornings coming, there will be less air drying and more blow drying. Can your strands take the heat? We’ve gathered our favorite b-glowing Heat Protectants, and all of them will help safeguard your locks while you have fun playing with different looks!

Sachajuan, Straight and Shine Spray: From the beloved brand known for its simple but effective hair care, we love this spray because it cares for you hair in the best ways: heat protection, added shine, touchable texture, and it’s easy to rinse out.

Shea Terra Organics, Argan Face and Body Oil: Hailing from Morocco, this specialized treatment is made from the Argania Spinosa tree, which produces oil that has twice as much Vitamin E as olive oil. You’ll reap reparative benefits, and it’s 100% natural. While you can use it everywhere on your body (score!), it also helps moisturize dry hair.

Oscar Blandi, Pronto Dry Heat Protect Spray: This dry spray is packing keratin proteins that nourish and strengthen, so you’re fully covered. We love it because it’s also great for restyling, so you can reshape your look throughout the day with added shine and stronger hold.

Rare E’l’ements, Marula Cocktail: No, it’s not for drinking, but it is a great mix of nutrient-rich oils. You can use it as a leave-in conditioner for instant shine, added moisture, breakage prevention, shaping, styling, and flyaway and frizz control. It made our list because it’s lightweight and silicone free.

Leonor Greyl, Huile de Palme: This treatment can be used as a pre-shampoo or on its own, and it’s natural oils work to soften hair. It’ll detangle, as well as protect, with gentle, environmentally friendly ingredients.

Make Over with BY TERRY Graphism

Posted on 10/07/2013

Shop b-glowing.com.

BY TERRY just debuted its new Graphism makeup collection, and our staff had a great time testing these amazing products. They not only create a beautiful, sophisticated look, but they also feel even better on your skin.

We were lucky enough to have four Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge to experiment with, and the pigments and consistency left us completely blown away. This lipstick will give you a punch of color, while maintaining a super-rich moisturizing feel.

We really love them all, but two of our favorites are the Be Red and the Plum Plump Girl. One is a vibrant red with a neutral base that will look good on all skin tones. It can sometimes be hard to find a good red with so many different shades from which to choose, but we are confident anyone can pull this shade off.

Plum Plump Girl is a daring, violet fuchsia that is great for fall. While it might not be your every-day, go-to color, it is perfect for an evening out or when you’re feeling especially bold.

BY TERRY is known for its Ombre Blackstar Cream eye shadow, and this product always gets rave reviews. What we’re most excited for is the two new matte colors: Black Matte and Brown Perfection. You get the creaminess of cream shimmer shadow but with a demure finish, plus each color can be layered for the desired effect and shade. We were able to get a light contour with the Brown Perfection, but also amp it up for a smokier look.

Then we tried the new Crayon Khol Terrybly additions in two truly pigment-packed colors: Royal Navy and Emerald Evasion. Here you can see just how bright and high voltage the Royal Navy shade is. It’s an easy way to make a statement without having to do a lot of work. With just a little mascara and liner, the look was totally eye catching. We couldn’t stop staring at it! The green is equally as beautiful, but dialed down a notch, so it can absolutely be worn to a more conservative occasion.

Remember, to MAKE BEAUTY. ® is to Make Creativity! Shop these picks and all BY TERRY.
