Beauty experts are given that title for a very specific reason. With years of experience within the industry they've been able to develop a reputation for beautiful results and their word is like gospel. This month in Elle magazine the 2013 Genius Awards were announced compiling the best in hair, makeup and skincare revealing the products they can't be without. So listen up beauty junkies, if you're on the lookout for a great brush or hair product bypass all the lemons and go straight for these proven staples!
Hair stylist Ben Skervin swears by Mason Pearson's Nylon & Boar Bristle Brush to 'create good tension for a smooth blow-out.' Their brushes will literally last you a lifetime and you don't have to worry about a shine spray since their special bristles will spread sebum evenly over the hair strands.
A Nuxe Paris best seller and staff favorite, makeup artist Nicolas Degennes loves to apply Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil Golden Shimmer to the décolleté for a healthy sheen. Tiny mother of pearl particles rest on the skin and give off a subtle sheen when sunlight is reflected off of it. It also enhances your summer tan!
It seems like the pros are all about oils just like we are. Bobbi Brown pays just as much attention to her hair as she does to her makeup line so when it needs some TLC she swears by Leonor Greyl's Huile de Palme because 'nothing makes hair as shiny.' Made with natural oils, this mane saver detangles, softens and adds a lustrous sheen with just a few drops!
Skincare expert Jean-Louis Sebagh, MD occasionally goes outside of his popular Dr Sebagh line when a product really delivers results. Avene's Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream 'is a miracle - it will heal anything from sunburn to sensitivity to skin spots.' Avene is known for its soothing properties so if you have sensitive skin or conditions like dermatitis or eczema this line will change your life!
Holistic skincare expert Tammy Fender swears by her own products to maintain great skin while also promoting healing on a physical level. Her Spontaneous Recovery Creme 'creates a strong moisture barrier to the skin', while her Quintessential Serum softens the complexion, hair and cuticles. Known to provide results after a single application, Tammy Fender skincare is ideal for people who want effective products with emotional benefits!
Shop RGB Cosmetics here!
HIPPxRGB has done it again. The makers of the award-winning Nail Foundations and Nail Tints collections have just released a new complexion-complementing line in pink called Nail Sheers.
These four pink shades range from light to dark (S1, S2, S3, S4), and like their 'sister' collections before them, allow the polish painter to pick the hue that best suits their hand.
We love the simplicity of this manicure. The 'kiss' of pink is just enough to create a healthy, flawless effect - appropriate for any occasion or work environment.
Shop Deborah Lippmann here!
We called it! We wrote about the new Deborah Lippmann Staccato collection back in March, and knew it was going to be making headlines.
Sure enough, in the latest issue of O Magazine, I'm Not Edible received high praise. The gritty take on classic pink polish received a 2013 Spring Makeup O-ward for "artful innovation". We couldn't agree more!
We love how this line contrasts the sweetness of a pastel with a dark, chunky black glitter. These edgy nails are fun for spring and summer, and act as the perfect complement for your bathing suit or LBD.
We are pleased to offer Deborah Lippmann Staccato nail polish in I'm Not Edible on b-glowing.com. Shop the rest of the Deborah Lippmann Staccato line here.
