MAKE BEAUTY. ICONIC: Linda Rodin » -

Our BEAUTY ICON, Rodin Olio Lusso’s Linda Rodin is a natural—both at what she does and how she does it. She craves simple skincare with natural ingredients that fight impurities while recovering genuine beauty.

Coming from a style background, we were eager to learn about how the two worlds collide and how they can work together, especially when it comes to b-glowing brands Linda loves!

Describe the perfect Saturday in NYC. 
Waking up late, having a cappuccino and going with Winky to the flea market. And having nothing else to do the rest of the day. 

As someone who's worked both actively in fashion and now beauty, how important is it that these two styles complement each other?
Well, I think I was very lucky to have been first in the fashion business. It enabled me to have access to the best models, makeup and hair stylists in the world, so I could let them try my products. That's how the buzz happened. Word of mouth 

What is the best beauty advice you've ever received? 
Always keep your skin clean and fresh

If you were stuck with one piece of makeup what would it be?
Lipstick, for sure

From one woman to the next, whom do you admire? 
I admire women who juggle careers with their families, women who make a difference in the world by helping other people, and women who allow themselves to not be too affected by how they "should" look or feel. It's all right to be yourself. 

Linda’s b-glowing Product Picks:

Art of Shaving, Ocean Kelp—for the men in my life
butter London—love the colours!
BY TERRY—so creamy, especially the new moisturizing #301 lipstick
Japonesque, Manicure Set and Artisan Tweezer-Slant. I love japonesque sets of all kinds
Paul & Joe, eye colors CS. I adore Paul & Joe packaging 
Peter Thomas Roth, Ultra-Lite, Oil-Free Sunblock. Keeps my skin protected but not greasy
RGB—hip and gorgeous
Deborah Lippman—wonderful colors. 
Mason Pearson, Pocket Boar Bristle Brush.

«Make Over with BY TERRY Graphism -

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.
