This month's ELLE Magazine featured a special on women in music, with Miss Adele on the cover, and a bunch of b-glowing products on the pages following! Check out the b-glowing.com brands and products receiving rave reviews in the May issue.

FACE

RMS Beauty Un Cover-Up: In 'Beauty Duets', Hayley Williams (front woman of Paramore) hails Un Cover-Up as her must-have concealer both offstage and on. We love that this product is both eco friendly and multipurpose - it can be used both as a concealer or a light foundation. Not cakey or heavy, Un Cover-Up is formulated to reveal and enhance healthy skin, healing blemishes while it conceals them.

HAIR

Peter Thomas Roth Hair To Die For: In 'The Mane Event', ELLE writer Eva Chen is on a mission to make over her less-than-healthy hair. Her journey to several salons and hair experts leads her to several haircare mainstays, one of which is " … skin-care guru Peter Thomas Roth's Hair To Die For serum (applied to the scalp), which gives my hair a thicker feel immediately … ". We love this this product too, as it's ideal for activating and maintaining the natural thickness, fullness and health of your hair.

NAILS

Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Fashion: Featured in 'Basic Instinct', this polish was voted by ELLE editors as one of the best beige shades out there. Fashion offers you a creamy taupe color that is a must-have for any lacquer drawer. On-trend every season, Fashion goes with any outfit, and will never go out of style.

RGB Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Toast: Another ELLE editor winner for best beige polish, Toast is five and cruelty free, and made in the USA. The RGB Cosmetics brand is devoted to green beauty, and Toast is no exception. This classic shade is great for every skin tone, and perfect for fingers or toes, or both!

Serge Normant Punks-Out SJP at 2013 Met Ball

Posted on 05/07/2013

Last night's punk-themed Met Ball is the talk of the town today. Rocking everything from fishnets and spikes, to studs and leather, Hollywood's A-list took punk to the next level in a variety of interpretations.

One of the top head-turning looks was, hands down, Sarah Jessica Parker. Dawning a gorgeous floral ballgown from designer Giles Deacon, Parker's dress split down the center to reveal over-the-knee plaid tartan boots. The pièce de résistance? Her hair! Styled by b-glowing.com brand Serge Normant, and topped with a mohawk headpiece from Philip Treacy, SJP was embracing the theme from head to toe.

How did Serge Normant rock-out the diva's 'do? With his own products of course!

The acclaimed hair stylist began with Meta Silk Shampoo and Meta Velour Conditioner to create a bouncy, shiny canvas. Following with Meta Lush Volumizer for flexibility, Serge reached for his Meta Sheer Finishing Oil to establish invisible hold and weightless volume. Finally, after creating the complex updo of braids and twists, Normant finished the look with Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold for the big event.
