Kate Bosworth in Marc Jacobs Beauty

12 Jan

Kate Bosworth

Anyone else wonder what makeup Kate Bosworth was wearing last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards? It was a head-turning palette of glowy, ethereal, and bold color.

Turns out, it was all Marc Jacobs Beauty – done by the brand’s Global Artistry Ambassador Hung Vanngo. The motivation for her look was to reflect optimism and hope. No wonder I was drawn to it.

Below is an exact breakdown of all the Marc Jacobs Beauty products that Hung used on Kate.

Mom’s Day 2017 Gift Guide

9 May

Showing up to Mother’s Day brunch without a gift is generally frowned upon. This Sunday, show Mom you’ve got her best interests in mind. From beauty to genes, here are a few gifts that won’t sit and gather dust on her shelf.

Makeup:

s1931385-main-LheroIf Mom hasn’t been introduced to BITE lip products yet, now’s the time. Each lipstick and pencil  is handcrafted from only natural and organic ingredients—like fruit butters and Manuka honey.

I love the BITE Multisticks for lips, cheeks, even dabbed onto eyelids. The limited-edition LOVE set makes a perfect gift – with 2 Multisticks (1 rosy taupe, 1 cool plum taupe), 1 sparkly Prismatic gloss, and 1 purse-sized mirror. Available now at Sephora.

Bodycare:melt-benefit_2

Another multitasker is Kopari’s Coconut Melt. Hair, tummy, face, heels – use it head to toe for ultimate soothing, 100% organic and unrefined coconut oil hydration. I also can’t get enough of their Coconut Body Milk. If Mom likes coconut oil, Kopari products are a must-have. Pull one of the gift sets or create one yourself at koparibeauty.com.

Skincare:tr_green_tea_spring_collection_set-643

I’ve never tried anything from Amore Pacific skincare that doesn’t feel absolutely nourishing and luxurious. If you aren’t familiar with these high performance products “powered by Asian botanicals” and Mom loves wonderful skincare, take a chance on this brand.

Go to a local Aritaum shop or Sephora and work with the consultant to pull products perfect for Mom’s skin type.

Hair Styling:Screen Shot 2017-05-09 at 1.54.15 AM

Give Mom a break from styling her hair on an upcoming occasion. There are so many Dry Bar locations now, one is bound to be near her. Admittedly, I use to question the necessity of these salons. But after one experience in the chair (and a smell of the Dry Bar products!!), I’ve changed my tune. There’s just something about not having to style your own hair.

Anyone else ever experienced a perspiring head from a hot hair dryer, causing your makeup to melt and the blow dry to take twice as long? #FirstWorldProblems, yes. But you are after all reading a beauty blog.

Go to your local Dry Bar or order a gift certificate online at thedrybar.com.

Jewelry:Screen Shot 2017-05-08 at 11.30.28 PM

Looking for less Beauty, and more Bauble? Helen Ficalora has the sweetest pieces. The charms can be purchased separately, and Mom necklaces can be individualized to your preference. Check out the pieces online, or the shop in Beverly Hills (461 N. Canon Drive) and show her just how much she shines.

Mom Testing:

kit-mothers-day.255fdc2c125fMom genes? Yes! We’ve all seen the commercials, but have you ever thought about what a perfect gift it might be for a relative? Consider giving Mom the gift of DNA genetic testing & analysis. Literally show her what she’s made of! You can even opt to add in information about her ancestry.

Order today and get $20 off at 23andme.com.

Happy Sunday to all. May none of us f*ck it up!

Met Gala Beauty: Emma Roberts

2 May

 

"Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: Art Of The In-Between" Costume Institute Gala - ArrivalsLast night was what many of us refer to as the Fashion Event of the Year in NYC: The Met Gala. This year’s Costume Institute theme was “Rei Kawakubo/ Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between.”

Red was fittingly a big trend of the evening, but my favorite was Emma Roberts.

Emma stunned in classic Hollywood glam. Her lollipop red satin Diane von Furstenberg gown stood out with a sleek corset bodice, peek-a-boo lace, and hot pink fur boa. While her hair hung long with an “un-styled” style, her makeup was a mix of vibrant and smoky color.

Makeup artist (and the woman behind her namesake brand) Charlotte Tilbury described Emma’s Met Ball look as, “a dreamy, lit-from-within glow on flawless, pore-less contoured skin, soft, rose-gold metallics on the eyes to make them look bigger and brighter, and sumptuous, fuller, wider Pillow Talk supermodel natural lips.”

Below are some of the key steps and CT products Charlotte used to create Emma’s look:
