Oscar Weekend: Travel Day

Posted on 02/28/2014

Saturday we fly to LA.  For flights I love to be casual, super comfy and of course a little stylish. 

My J Crew leggings are a must for me when flying.  I also make sure I wear shoes I can easily slip on and off like these super cute ballet shoes.  I’m not a big fan of wearing makeup while I’m flying.  The air is so dry that it just leaves my skin and eyes feeling dehydrated and itchy.  I prefer to not wear mascara or any makeup for that matter. That being said, I still like to try and look my best. 

One of the easiest ways to make myself look more “finished” in a natural way is with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness.  I have a ton of redness in my face and this instantly removes it!  It’s similar to a foundation, but much lighter and can actually be worn under a foundation.  To achieve a natural, hydrated glowy look I moisturize with my Erno Laszlo Hydraphel SPF 15 and finish with a bit of Bye Bye Redness.  I finish with some RMS Living Luminizer for a youthful radiance around my cheek bones, chin, forehead, the inner corner of my eyes and the bridge of my nose.  This 3 step gives me the hydration, coverage and glow I love. 

Since the brow frames the face I don’t leave the house without my Anastasia Brow Wiz to define the shape of my brow and her amazing Dip Brow Pomade to fill in and cover any stray grays.  For my lips I smudge on a bit of the Original Rosebud Salve to hydrate and heal my lips.  This is a great item to keep in your purse for any kind of instant hydration whether it is for cuticles, elbows, lips and more. 

Last but not least my trip wouldn’t be complete without lots of water!  Once I’m passed security I fill up my bkr with water to stay hydrated through the flight – especially if I have a glass of wine on board! 

Sunday morning a T3 Stylist and Koh Gen Do makeup artist will be helping me get ready for Elton John’s Oscar party!  I’ll be sure to share with you all their tips and tricks to achieve my updated 1940’s look!

Xoxo

Skin Prep for The Oscars

Posted on 02/27/2014

All week long I’ve been focused on prepping my skin so that it looks the absolute best it can.  Erno Laszlo said “Beautiful skin requires a commitment, not a miracle” and boy was he right!  I’ve noticed throughout my life that when I commit to a regime my skin looks radiant and beautiful, but when I get lazy – it shows.  Some of you may have that perfect skin that still looks perfect even when you wash it with Zest, but that is not the case with mine. 

So what am I doing this week in preparation for Elton John’s Oscar Party this Sunday?  It all starts with my Clarisonic two times a day.  I discovered Clarisonic about 6 years ago and it simply has been a game changer with my skin.  Regular use of it makes my skin look smoother, less red, more even and just simply more glowy. 

I follow with Erno Laszlo Hydraphel Day Cream with SPF 15.  This gives my sensitive skin the extra hydration it needs this time of year and the SPF 15 protects it from the harmful UVA/UVB rays.  We should all know by now that 80% of wrinkles and pigmentation are from daily exposure to the sun. Whether it’s rain or shine including a broad spectrum in your daily face moisturizer is the best anti-aging treatment you can do for yourself.  For my eyes the Erno Laszlo Luminous Eye Complex brightens, de-puffs and hydrates.  With my crazy schedule these days I sure need all of that for my eyes.

Since I’ll be wearing a sleeveless dress my 47 year old arms need a little extra attention.  I’m using Mio’s Shrink To Fit Cellulite Smoother two times a day on my upper arms just to tighten them up a smidge.  I’m already pretty toned from lifting our 9 month old baby around, but the skin needs just a little extra attention.

Last, but certainly not least, St. Tropez is my best friend this week.  I’ve exfoliated and have been using the Self Tan Bronzing Mousse every other day in the AM before I get dressed.  By the time I’m done with my makeup it’s completely dry to the touch. 

I’ll touch base before my flight this weekend to share with you my essential beauty travel tips!

xoxo

Oscar Countdown

Posted on 02/24/2014

I’m so excited to share that my husband and I were invited to Elton John’s Academy Awards viewing party to benefit his AIDS Foundation. His party last year raised $6 million dollars for the foundation providing critical services to help the HIV/AIDS community.

We’ll be flying down to LA Saturday night. Plans are to have dinner at Villa Blanca and then rest up for Sunday! At 47 years old, running a business, managing our household and taking care of our 9 month old girl Ella, I definitely need my beauty sleep!!

I’m already planning my beauty ritual. Before I get to that I want to give you a sneak peak of my dress and accessories. Here is a swatch for the dress I’m going to wear.

I usually go for black, but when I tried this plum number on it looked great with my hair color. I’ve ordered 2 statement bracelet choices from Rent The Runway and a modern jeweled hair comb to sweep my hair to one side.

I’ll be sure to keep you up to date on what I decide to do with my hair and makeup and what b-glowing products I use to achieve the look. For this event I’m going for Classic 1940’s Hollywood with a modern refresh. I’ll be sure to post lots of pics!

Koh Gen Do Primer

Posted on 02/17/2014

Shop b-glowing.

Primer is such an important step in makeup application…which is why it’s the first! It helps set the skin for flawless application, and it can even start the process of evening and correcting skin tone, before your foundation.

Koh Gen Do’s Maifanshi Makeup Color Base is one of our favorites because it’s available in pearl white, yellow, lavender pink, and green—each color specifically suited to individual skin types.

It moisturizes and protects skin with SPF 16 while concealing trouble spots and dark circles, and diffusing redness. Plus, it minimizes the appearance of pores for a smooth, glowing look. Rich, botanical extracts create flawless translucency.

The pink adds a healthy tint and lavender counteracts a yellow cast, while the classic pearl white creates a fine pearl layer for silky sheen. No matter which you and your skin choose, rest assured that you’ll be getting the best with Koh Gen Do’s exquisite products and unparalleled ingredients.

Gold Flake Blotting Papers-TATCHA Aburatorigami

Leave your makeup alone as you gently remove excess oil and sweat with this 300-year-old Japanese beauty secret. Your makeup will last longer, courtesy of this powder and prime alternative, so you can look fresh even if you don’t quite feel it. Plus, it’s fragrance-free, powder-free, oil-free, all-natural and biodegradable.

Worth Nail Polish- Tenoverten

For first-place nails, this gold metallic nail polish will turn heads. Tenoverten is a polish that’s good for the long-term health of your nails, but still has lasting power.

Meta Blonde Reviving Shampoo- Serge Normant

For the blondes (or the brunettes with highlights) this shampoo glorifies beautiful blonde hair, so take home the glory! Blonde pigments enhance hair color as a refresher and aid in the prevention of color fading. While it works great for natural or color-treated hair, it’s not recommended for pale or platinum blondes unless golden tones are desired.

WINK Cream Eyeshadow in Treacle-Boho Rock Collection - butter LONDON

This easy-to-apply eye shadow feels as great going on as it looks after application. The sheer formula goes on smooth and is easily layered for deeper intensity, allowing you to create your own customized look. The shadow is soft and velvety, easy to blend and does not crease.
