New York Fashion Week is almost over and then what? After 10 days of late nights, long lines, champagne overload and constant socializing we have to come down from that fashion high. Rachel Zoe's 'Zoe Beautiful' just addressed that very topic in their weekly e-newsletter and suggested a few beauty products to soothe and settle both mind and complexion. As soon as you have a weekend free, we suggest these products below to help you get a little r & r:

In fact it's the one product my husband loves to remind me he's out of because consistency is normal gritty and men really like that feeling in a grooming product. Exfoliation is SO important, especially if you suffer from trapped ingrown hairs or are concerned about wrinkles (yes, even men do have these concerns even though they tend to not voice them). Anthony Logistics Facial Scrub contains spherical beads that over usage, aim to free ingrown hairs and remove dead skin cells.

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 - Butter London Nails!

Posted on 09/14/2012

Shop all the Butter London nail lacquers here!

Another season of great fashion has ended so it's time to reflect on some gorgeous nail trends seen at New York Fashion Weeks Spring/Summer 2013 shows. Butter London is responsible for creating gorgeous bespoke shades for many of the hottest shows and this year was no exception. However, I did notice there seemed to be a love of natural manicured nails at many of the shows at you can see below. 

 

Starting off my favorite of the bunch was from the VEDA show. The inspiration for this show was a 'Cosmic Nail' with a mix of mauve and olive with celestial effects. To add an edge to the look, a glossy black stripe was added for a geometric element. The nails were complimented by soft makeup and mohawks. Recreate the Veda look yourself with a mix of Sloane Ranger, Toff, Knackered and Gobsmacked.

 

It was all about rock and roll for the Kaleen show which translated to a grungy, distressed nail. Using black as the base a nude khaki was then layered in jagged strokes from the top of the nail bed upwards creating a backwards french manicure. For added dimension, matte out the only the black section, creating a dual textured look full of disheveled luxury. Get the look with Yummy Mummy and your favorite black lacquer!

 

Erin Featherston is known for her signature girly meets industrial edge and this season she complimented flirty, feminine silhouettes with a soft metallic nail. Metallic nails mimic the look of jewelry so the nails served as the eye catching bling in lavender and silver tones. Recreate this with Butter London's Dodgy Barnett and Shag.

 

Band of Outsiders and The Row were all about the naked, minimalist nail. Squeaky clean nails aren't as easy to do as you think. It's like being naked and having your flaws on full display so make sure your nails beds are buffed, filed and properly cleaned underneath. Start by applying a base coat of the the Horsepower Nail Fertilizer to strengthen and then Butter London's Nail Foundation to create an even perfect foundation. Finish off with the Hardwear P.D Quick Topcoat or Matte Finish to leave nails minimalistically gorgeous!

Create Full Eyebrows With Talika's Eyebrow Extender

Posted on 09/19/2012

Shop the Talika range here!

Eyebrows hold the power to transform your face. Just look what it did for the career of Brooke Shields. Like Elle Machpherson being known as 'the body', I think it's safe to say Brooke can be called 'the brow' and those brows are something I've been striving for since big, kempt-unkempt eyebrows came back on trend. If you made the youthful mistake of over plucking or shaving (yikes) and now they don't grow back the same then the Talika Eyebrow Extender is a great solution to give you full brows in under ten minutes.

 

This is no serum to grow eyebrows, just an ingenious product containing rayon fibers mixed with an odorless gel that stick to your existing eyebrows to immediately create fullness and then wash off easily with makeup remover. Eyebrows look naturally thicker. If you have great brows but lacking in eyelashes then the same technology used  in Talika's Eyelash Extender
