This is definitely Marilyn Monroe's year. Even in death her signature style and glamorous flair warms our hearts and leaves us with many unanswered questions. Although she was definitely gone to soon the girl had a timeless taste in fashion and beauty that we still aspire to today. Marilyn entrusted her beauty regime to a select few brands who maintained her silver screen worthy skin. The August issue of Allure magazine pays tribute to this amazing woman through gorgeous photographs through memory lane and an inside scoop on what products transormed Norma Jean into Marilyn. A couple of her go to favorites were by Erno Laszlo, one even found on her nightstand at the time of her death.

Dr. Erno Laszlo treated Marilyn's skin throughout her career, even going to the lengths of creating a custom made product, Phormula 3-9, to fade a scar on her stomach. Filled with tamaru and marine collagen extract, this intensive nourishing balm reduces redness, puffiness and smoothes away wounds and burns. 

 

Erno Laszlo's Active Phelityl Cream is an intensive moisturizer that protects and nourishes the skin for a full 24 hours. It's no wonder Marilyn would put this cream on before she went to bed and left it as a reminder on her nightstand. Safflower seed oil improves skin's elasticity and a unique moisturizing complex with a PH nearly identical to the skin helps to maintain the fatty acids for essential skin function.

Fresh from the sea beach hair is hard to recreate when you're at home juggling between hair sprays, volumizers and dry shampoos. In the end it can end up in a rat's nest type of disaster when really you only have to keep in mind that less is more. And when I say less, I mean one product and that would be Sachajuan's Ocean Mist. I happen to love any product that guarantees to give me that salty but sexy dirtiness that typically can only be accomplished by a dip in some tropical sea water and letting hair naturally dry in the breeze. Spritz some Ocean Spray on to wet or dry hair and your hair is left with a natural twist and volume that will have you looking amazing for a post beach cocktail! Vogue Summer Beauty Guide voted it as the best product to get beachy hair without the beach!

«Foundation Salvation! -

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.
