Summer is my favorite makeup season of the year. Not only does it mean cutting back on a few extra makeup products but also introducing pastel eyeshadows, romantic pink glosses and my personal favorite, bronzing creams and powders. European luxury brand By Terry's new products have really caught my eye this season for their amazing formulations and gorgeous shades. Here are the ones I'll be getting to create my summer makeup look for 2012.
I'm really picky about self tanners but have found a lot of luck with facial moisturizers that work to nourish the skin as well as build a safe and natural looking tan. The one I have my eye on this summer is By Terry's Serum Terrybly Sunbooster. Active ingredients work together to create a luminous tan 365 days a year, without DHA or sun exposure. Simply apply morning and evening onto cleansed skin.
Now that my tan is in check I want to enhance my cheekbones with a sexy shade and my favorite of the moment is By Terry's Blush Terrybly Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb, a deep pinky coral with iridescent particles. The silver compact it comes in is so gorgeous but best of all is the lasting power. Blush typically tends to wear off after a long day but this highly pigmented yet sheer blush keeps a freshly applied appearance all day.Read More »
I'm sure you're all set for your summer wardrobe with a new bikini, sunglasses and kaftan on order, but what about summer beauty? Thus was the question on this morning's The Zoe Report's Zoe newsletter. With temperatures on the rise and skin suffering from post traumatic stress from the sun, or as I like to call it, schweaty face, the Zoe staff has some sizzling product selections to beat the heat and look fabulous.
To combat an overly shiny complexion you need Paul & Joe's Blotting Papers from their Summer 2012 range. Not only do they pack an adorable punch with a bright floral motif and fit effortlessly into the tiniest purse, but one touch across the cheek will blot away any excess oil while leaving makeup intact.
By Terry's Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow will 'give smoky eyes a splash of color' with their new summer inspired shades of Paradise Island and Fizzy Jade. It's creamy melt away formulation is one of the latest 'crayon' shadows that you can literally draw on the eye and blend.

Keep your eyes in their prime with…..an eye primer! Toners, sunscreens and primers aren't typically at the top of people's beauty list but they're also highly underestimated. You never want to get a lemon which is why the New York Time's T Magazine blog recently showcased four eye primers that pack a punch, fulfill their promise and are well worth the price point. Two of those just happen to be from b-glowing.com!
Soleil Organique's Environmental Defense Eye Therapy protects skin around the eyes, smoothes fine lines, boosts collagen and camouflages dark circles with Hydrolized Soy Fiber, Peptides, and CoQ10. Best of all it serves a dual function of daily eye cream and primer in one!
By Terry's Hyaluronic Eye Primer is a frosty tinted foam that instantly fills in lines, deep wrinkles and furrows around the eye area. It's tinted formulation with mineral pigments and micro power prisms leave a luminous yet matte finish to make eyes appear younger and brighter!

The eyes are the window to the soul and the lips are just as alluring and provacative. We need to take good care of our lip pillows 365 days a year to keep them readily soft and kissable. The skin on the lips is a lot thinner and sensitive than our bodies so we need to be mindful of the products we use to address the issues of cracked skin and dry lips. Take a gander at some of our picks to keep them pucker-iffic!
First step to soft lips is to exfoliate and there's nothing better or more yummy smelling than Sara Happ's Limited Edition Blood Orange Lip Scrub. Tiny, granular sugar crystals gently exfoliates flaky skin to leave lips incredibly soft and supple. One of my favorite products ever, this is gentle enough to use once a week. Try your best not to be tempted to eat any, it smells that enticing.
If you'd like to forego the step of needing a sink then Ilia's handy Lip Exfoliator comes in lipstick form and can be used daily. Organic ingredients blended with tiny granules of volcanic stone powder gently exfoliate lips. There's no need to rinse, simply follow up with a lip conditioner to seal in moisture.
For lip conditioning like no other may I tempt you and your wallet with By Terry's Baume de Rose SPF 15. This rose like no other (it smells of the classic flower), is a melt away balm that has become the must have of Hollywood stars because of its ability to repair, nourish, regenerate the lip area and leave a beautiful soft glossy sheen in it's wake. It can also be used as a salve to strengthen your cuticles!
Don't let lips go naked! You've buffed and conditioned them to perfection, now it's time to get them noticed with a hint of color with Kevyn Aucoin The Lip Gloss. Choose from 12 different shades from soft peach to the brightest blood red that will keep lips shiny and smooth without feeling greasy or slippery.

A lot of people underestimate how hard it is to find a foundation. It's like a second skin so you want it to feel like a part of you and finding that perfect facial companion is trickier than it seems. Although choosing a foundation is totally based on personal preference I've gathered a few of my favorite standouts to help you navigate through the endless choices of a woman's go to cosmetic product:
Ellis Faas Skin Veil Pen has made it through my checklist for numerous reasons. For one, the silky smooth, barely there formulation covers up flaws and leaves skin looking incredibly radiant. Secondly, for those who don't want to use fingers or a sponge, the application of this product is made so efficient due to it's applicator brush that allows you to get in between nostril curves and facial contours. Minerals diffuse light across the skin's surface reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!
Although I'm not technically able to call it a foundation, Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint is more like a tinted moisturizer but gives great coverage if you have unproblematic skin. It evens out uneven skin tone and also camouflages fine lines with light diffusing ingredients while also protecting from harmful UV rays with SPF 20!
Christened the makeup foundation for dummies, By Terry's Light Expert Perfecting Foundation Brush is an anti-blemish, anti-shadow and anti-dullness formulation that instantly illuminates the face. It's featherweight texture can be deceiving because it actually gives deceptive coverage and hyaluronic acid microspheres work to plump up wrinkles for an instant lifting effect.
For those who like a thicker coverage, a staff favorite as well as Kim Kardashian's is Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer. Housed in a tiny jar, we prefer to apply this product with fingertips rather than a sponge due to it's thicker consistency and ability to warm it up by massaging it through your fingertips for better application. It can be used as a concealer or for the perfect highlighter as well! One thing you can rely on is complete coverage at all times. Our suggestion is that less is more with the Sensual Skin Enhancer. Apply to a freshly moisturized and primed skin and apply more as desired.

I love it when friends share their beauty secrets with each other. Recommendations from someone you trust are like gold and recommendations from beauty editors or tastemakers is even better. After all, trusted friends and industry pros will never steer you wrong. As I was flipping through the pages of this months Harper's Bazzar (with Rhi-Rhi on the cover) I fell upon their 'Beauty Diaries' feature showcasing different fashionable women of all ages sharing their secrets to getting better with age. DJ and entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman is a 20 year old stylish gal who also happens to have great taste in beauty. Not only does she swear by By Terry's Baume de Rose to keep lips soft and supple but also Nuxe Paris Huile Prodigieuse Multi Use Dry Oil Shimmer on her legs to condition the skin and enhance them with a subtle glow. Tom Hanks wife Rita Wilson was also featured in the 50's section sharing that her signature scent is Tom Ford's Black Orchid. She also doesn't let gray roots get her down, but instead fights them off in an instant with Oscar Blandi's Colore Root Touch Up & Highlighting Pen.

There's nothing more exciting then hearing straight from the professionals tips to help us look our best without spending our entire savings in one season's worth of wardrobe and makeup. I was obsessed with Marie Claire magazine editor Nina Garcia's books like The One Hundred and The Little Black Book of Style because it illustrated what's worth a splurge and what's not and am now really excited to get my hands on Andrea Pomerantz Lustig new book How To Look Expensive. In it she shares beauty editors secrets to getting gorgeous without breaking the bank. In one chapter she details the best expensive looking makeup worth the splurge but also their cheaper counterparts that mimic the same look.
By Terry products were given a lot of beauty editor approval with 4 products making the splurge cut as products she would use herself. Andrea loves luminous foundations that come with their own attached brush so the product squirts through the brush and is then easy to apply. By Terry's VIP Expert Light Expert Perfecting Foundation Brush was one of her splurge foundation favorites because it does just this!
To create the perfect cat-eye calls for a perfect eyeliner so Andrea chooses By Terry Ligne Blackstar Intense Liquid Eyeliner for it's ability to give tattoo precision with a calligraphy felt tip. If wet eyeliner is not your forte then Andrea suggests By Terry Crayon Kohl Terrybly which offers excellent glide along with intense pigmented color and long lasting hold. And lastly, give the remainder of your eyes a big pop with any of the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadows. Their melt away formulations enhances the eye with an utra glossy hold and stretchable texture allows you to mold and play with the shape!

Congratulations to b-glowing.com brand, Tatcha, for their bio feature on founder Victoria Tsai in April's O Magazine.
Victoria Tsai gave readers the inside scoop on how the Tatcha brand came to be. Tsai found inspiration on a trip to Japan back in 2009, after meeting a group of geisha.
"Without their stage makeup on, their skin is so clear and smooth, whether they're 20 or 80."
Three years later, Tatcha was born.
We loved reading about Victoria Tsai's beauty journey, everything from the first beauty product she ever owned (Hello Kitty blotting tissues) to her latest discovery, fellow b-glowing.com brand By Terry's Rouge Terrybly.
"A good friend who's a makeup artist told me recently that my brownish berry lipstick was aging me. He suggested I make my lips a touch lighter than my natural color instead. I switched to By Terry Rouge Terrybly Lipstick in Terrybly Nude, and I look so much fresher."

Pastels are everywhere this season in both fashion and beauty. Whether it's a peach blouse or a lilac eye, pastels almost always make an appearance in the spring, regardless of what year it is. Looking to implement this palette into your daily routine? Here are 3 easy ways you can play with pastels, without breaking the bank.
Peach is flattering to every skin tone because it resembles a natural flush. All you have to do is figure out the right tone of peach to flatter your complexion.
Fair - We recommend a softer hue with hints of pink, like IT Cosmetics Airbrush Blush Stain - Sweet Cheeks.
Medium - Go for pigments with more of an orange tint, try Jouer Cosmetics Tint in Fawn.
Darker - Complemented by a peach with a redder base, we recommend By Terry Blush Terrybly - Ultimate Radiance Blush in Beach Bomb.
Say it with a Scarf
If you are new to pastel hues or if there is a new one you want to try, start with a scarf. Colors take a while to get used to, and may not all complement your coloring. Before investing in an expensive dress or jacket, test the trend with something smaller. If you aren't a scarf fan, this can also be accomplished with a necklace, clutch, or ballet flat.
I Have an EYE-dea
Pastel eyes! Eyeshadow is a lovely way to pose in pastels, and there is a flattering way to wear every shade! The trick to looking trendy and not … from the 80's, is to combine the pastel with a neutral shade. Here are some examples to get you going.
- Blend a frosty pink lid into a light grey crease, try ILIA Multi-Stick in Tenderly.
- Combine mint green shimmer with a caramel brown eyeliner, try Vapour Organic Beauty Mesmerize Eye Shimmer Treatment in Smitten.
- Mix a classic black smoky eye with a baby blue highlight, try By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadow in Paradise Island.

Hyaluronic acid. It's the ingredient you've heard about, but may not really know. In this week's 'Tips & Tricks', b-glowing.com put on a lab coat and gives you the lowdown on this commonly-used anti-aging miracle ingredient.
Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan or HA, occurs naturally in our bodies, but decreases as we get older. It enables our bodies to retain moisture, keeps our joints lubricated, and keeps our skin smooth, elastic, and full.
In 2003, the FDA approved the use of HA as an injectable to fill wrinkles, remove scars, and plump lips - also known as Restylane injections. HA is also commonly used to replace fluid in joints, treat eczema, and heal tissue post eye surgery.
Because of its multiple cosmetic benefits, HA has gradually made its way into the beauty industry as a topical treatment for anti-aging and skin restoration. Hyaluronic acid's ability to bind moisture to the surface of the skin, while still allowing oxygen through, makes it a perfect addition to hydrating creams, serums and liquid makeup.
Several b-glowing.com brands have incorporated HA into their product formulas, like BY TERRY, Peter Thomas Roth, and Goldfaden MD. We continue to see this effective ingredient in anti-aging skincare brands and products we bring on.
For more 'Tips & Tricks' posts, stay tuned to the b-glowing.com Magazine.Read More »
Fall is famous for color, which makes it the perfect time to adopt a new one yourself. Lipstick is a great accessory that can be bold, complementary or even work as a natural enhancement. Pucker up for this week’s top picks; b-glowing staff adores these lipsticks for the fall season.
BY TERRY Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge, Fatal Shot: It plumps, moisturizes, disguises wrinkles and fine lines and finishes with a subtle gloss. Available in 15 colors, you can switch up your look daily, or stick to one hue for the season. For fall, our staff loves Fatal Shot: It’s a great berry color that looks playful without being too pinky.
ELLIS FAAS Creamy Lips, Blood Red: An easy, smooth application stains lips without the sticky feeling. You’ll get full coverage with a creamy finish, courtesy of a spongy applicator. We love the Blood Red color because it helps make a seductive statement without going overboard. It’s a good red for fall because it has a touch of brown, which tones it down for the perfect shade.
ILIA LIPSTICK, Funnel of Love: ILIA shades are beautifully modern with organic ingredients. The tones are generally more subtle, with a few pops of bold color, but they can all be layered so you can create your personal shade. Funnel of Love is a warm, nude shade for when you want some color that won’t clash with a smokey eye; or it’s great just for a natural palate.
KEVYN AUCOIN The Matte Lipsticks, Persistence: The color and the moisture last all day. Plus, the formula contains ingredients that minimize wrinkles over time, guaranteed. We love Persistence because it’s a fun, bold color that’ll turn heads! The more edgy violet color is perfect for the girl who likes to shake it up a bit.

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.

We’re obsessing over BY TERRY’s Baume de Rose, which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. Created by Terry de Gunzburg out of her adoration for roses, this product quickly became a cult favorite for lips in desperate need of relief. “I dreamed of the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the lip balms, a beauty must-have that would wonderfully transform even the most damaged lips,” she says.
Working with her research labs, Terry found a melt-in balm packed with lipo-regenerating substances, with the nourishing power of rose wax, hidden amongst the formulas. They discovered “a nourishing, replenishing, anti-aging formula that would leave the lips plumped, younger looking and radiant with vitality. We were about to invent the ‘jewel’ of lip care!” Terry says.
The baume was Terry’s first “ode” to the rose, which, when touched, feels much like skin. “Indispensable in all seasons, this rare treasure of nutrients makes sure lips are soft, smooth, plump, and revitalized, and keeps cuticles looking trim,” Terry says.
Now, 10 years old, it’s become a beauty staple for countless women...b-glowing included! For the anniversary, Baume de Rose has a special look, covered in graffiti hearts. With a silver loveheart design, the limited-edition jar is a stylish vanity companion.

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.
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.

In 1998 she launched her own signature range and has never looked back. By Terry represents the needs of the modern woman, radiant skin and an inimitable feel. Here are some of the highlights:
Even a lip balm is luxurious with By Terry's Baume de Rose SPF 15. The Hollywood stars swear by this uber-cult product and we can understand why. It gives shine without being sticky and is so nourishing it can be used to strengthen the cuticles as well as repair the lips.

There's no time like summer to break out those bright popsicle and sherbet shades. Neon knows no boundaries so feel free to apply on nails, eyelids and lips! However, a little word to the wise, just like jewelry it's a good idea to choose one area to focus your beauty statement rather than choosing all three. A turquoise eye, hot pink cheek and bright orange lip might be a little overkill, unless you're walking on a runway. Here are a few fun high voltage shades to adorn yourself with this summer season…
Make an eye-popping statement with By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Fizzy Jade Or Paradise Island. These crayon inspired eye shadows can literally be drawn on for precise contouring as well as easily blended out to create more of a smoky look. Both of these shades remind me of the sea with Fizzy Jade being a gorgeous soft green and Paradise Island a turquoise blue. They're made with pearl proteins, present in the form of micronized powder which allows for a creamy, melt away eyeshadow that creates a lifting light effect and has infallible hold.
Lips are meant to be noticed. Forego your neutral soft pink gloss and go high octave with staff favorite Ilia Lipstick in Neon Angel. We can't get enough of fuchsia this season and when it's this easy to apply and consists of organic ingredients that tint and condition our skin it's a beauty junkie no brainer.
Jungle Queen by Lipstick Queen is a perfect addition to your makeup bag for those days when you want to let out your wild side. It is semi-sheer, so it gives just the right amount of color without overwhelming your face.
butter LONDON's Patent Shine 10x Nail Color is both fierce and fun. Part rebellious and part glamorous, this is a perfect shade for summer playtime.
