Tatcha Labor Day Sale!

31 Aug

As with the long Labor Day weekend comes the sales. And as much as I’d like to stand on my high horse about how these types of weekends aren’t about consumerism, I won’t. Mainly because it’d be hypocritical. I LOVE a great sale!

So I’m sharing a brand with you that rarely goes on sale – and that’ll be that.

Tatcha. Love this skincare brand! If you don’t know it and dream of “geisha pure skin,” check it out on Tatcha.com or at Sephora. Personally, I can’t get enough of their tinted illuminating eye treatment for masking tired eyes.

Tatcha has taken some of their most popular products and is offering them in 3 complementing duos at big price reductions on their websiteAugust 30th thru September 2nd. See below!

Westlake Staycation

27 Aug

Screen Shot 2018-08-26 at 1.09.12 PM

Sometimes a girl needs a little staycation. Something with a spa. Somewhere not too-too far. Relaxing. Indulgent.

I had the perfect staycation this month at the Four Seasons Westlake Village. A gorgeous property that truthfully seems a little out of sorts in this particular location… but with a golf course could easily become a destination spot.

Less than an hour from West Hollywood, I highly recommend making the drive for a quick overnight. The deep marble 2-person tub alone is worth the trip. Just BYO bubble bath. Or request their intoxicating what-I-can-only-guess-is lemongrass-scented bath cubes.

Make sure to visit the pool, too. Once you make your way through the spa maze, it’s well worth reserving a cabana if you can swing it. Lovely spacious patios surround the pool, fully equipped with daybed, chaise lounges, television, ceiling fan & storage space. You can easily make a day of it out there.

I however had a spa and salon to visit. If you book a treatment, make sure to leave time to experience the spa amenities. Especially the sauna. It’s huge. Two rooms! I actually wasn’t counting the minutes ‘til I could bolt for the steam room. If you’re concerned about losing tone or firmness in your face, treat yourself to the Swift Lift Firming Facial. It’s as effective as it is relaxing—and they’ll do extractions if you want. Yes please.

The hotel is also home to the award-winning California Health & Longevity Institute — a facility with onsite doctors and specialists to help guests achieve individual wellness and total body rejuvenation.  

Recently taken over by the Four Seasons, the new Rhythm & Hair salon is modern beauty convenience at its best. Grab a cut, blowout, manicure… it’s all at your fingertips. Heh heh, punny. The stylists use some of my favorite Oribe products, and there’s even a special barber-esque area just for men.

Before I knew it, it was time to return to the real world. Perhaps the time I plan a staycation, I’ll plan to stay a little longer.

As a big fan of her skincare products, I’m counting the minutes to see what Charlotte does for color correction. She’s launching with two products – a concealer stick and a loose powder. Product details below.

MAGIC AWAY LIQUID CONCEALER

This concealer is full-coverage, lasts up to 15 hours, is water resistant, and created with Elastic Second Skin Texture to mimic the look of a fresh, new complexion.

GTL: Beyoncé’s September Vogue Cover

20 Aug

unnamedI don’t write many Get-the-Look posts because to me it’s better to find your own. Kim & Kylie have honed their looks and they work fabulously for them… but I’m beyond tired of all the clones. Really tired of them. Only one blogger’s opinion though.

In any case, I’m making an exception today. When I find a legit beauty tip about getting a glow like Beyoncé or J.Lo, you will read it here.

Have you seen Beyoncé’s September Vogue cover? Her face is natural. Her makeup doesn’t pull focus from the huge fashion issue. It’s all her. It’s gorgeous. Beyoncé’s makeup was done by Sir John using mostly Marc Jacobs Beauty products.

The goal was to create an ethereal glow. We know Beyoncé loves that no-makeup makeup look. And while heredity can play a big part here, a glow is a relatively easy thing to fake.

“She’s all about being confident in your skin and owning your natural element. This look was all about redefining glamorous as a state of mind. We focused on enhancing her natural brows, skin and structure – and bringing out that inner glow.”

– Sir John, on Beyoncé

 

SIR JOHN’S TIPS TO GET-THE-LOOK

  • Prep skin using Marc Jacobs Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer 
  • Apply foundation on wet, moisturized skin
  • For her lit-from-within glow, use a bronzey, rose-gold finish with a 2-part highlight
    • First, he apply Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter in Fantasy to the basic highpoints of your face
    • Second, use foundation slightly darker than your complexion and mix it with the same Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter to get a 3D cheek
  • To set the look, use Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder to create a lasting soft-matte finish

BEYONCÉ | VOGUE

 

PRO TIP: “Always avoid shimmer on the front of the face. Apply it to your angles for sexiness.”

– Sir John
