SUBLIME

 

When Hayden Panettiere isn’t wrestling with her superhuman powers on her hit show Heroes, she’s wowing us with her superhuman good looks. Hayden is so young, yet so put together. No matter what the occasion, she always evokes grace and elegance.

 

The key to this look is to find the right balance between a strong eye and a strong lip. The best tip is to keep the makeup sheer to soften the dark hues.

 

 

BEAUTY BREAKDOWN:

 

Brows: Structured

 

Eyes: Highlighted brow bone with eyelids softly bathed in a sparkling gunmetal. Eyes are lined only on top and accented with false lashes

 

Cheeks: Highlighted with an opal powder for a radiant glow

 

Lips: Lined, sheer crimson lipstick with transparent gloss

 

Skin: Matte and softly bronzed

By, Sharon Curtis

 

Frederic Fekkai has worked long and hard to build a line of products "ideal for those with dull, dry, damaged hair, especially those who use heated styling products and are exposed to harsh enviromental elements (such as pollution, sunlight, cold and dry air).

 

The AGELESS Hair system was designed to "empowered with a wealth of natural and biochemically-derived ingredients that are known to protect, nourish and rebuild hair. The system is comprised of 5 products with a recently new addition, All-Day Hair Plump.

 

All Day Hair Plump is a leave-in treatment that plumps hair with moisture and offers retexturizing benefits. It works to repair damage and reinforce the cuticle for increased hair strength. This special cream provides continuous moisture throughout the day ($95).

Have it your way with… My Blend



 

By, Sharon Curtis

 

Want to personalize your skin care? If the answer is yes, than My Blend definitely fits the bill.

 

My Blend is the brainchild of Dr. Olivier Courtin. Dr. Courtin is the author of The Courtin Concept: Six Keys to Great Skin at Any Age, and is also the son of the founder of Clarins. "The concept behind My Blend is luxurious formulations that treat every skin according to its various life stages and evolving needs." My blend was born as a result of many years of intense research and development.

 

I was lucky enough to be invited to a private showing for My Blend, and got to experience the line first hand.

 

Here is the breakdown on the extensive line:

 

There are 8 base formulas (01-08), all available in cream or lotion, all with different purposes ranging from ‘Oil Crisis Control’ to ‘Potent Age Antidote’. The lotion is generally meant as a day formula and the cream a night formula. When you purchase a cream or lotion, you also get a mini cream or lotion companion to go along with it. Now I’ll explain what you can do with your mini.

 

  

The mini companion cream or lotion can be used for travel or for custom blending. My Blend currently makes 6 mega concentrated ‘MiniLab doses’ of pure actives all in an easy to use syringe. The six ‘doses’ are: Speedy Recovery, Moisture Immersion, Redness Rescue, Anti-Oxidant Surge, Radiant Burst, and Anti-Jet Lag Relief Emergency Booster . You simply add any one of these doses to your mini cream or lotion if you are temporarily experiencing one of the above concerns. Once the mini cream or lotion and added dose are finished, so is the concern you were having, and you can go back to using the cream and/or lotion by itself. Now that’s TRULY personalized skincare. This line is so cool!

 

In addition to the more personalized line, they also make special care products for targeted areas such as: Eye Cremes, Cleansers, Spf 40, Skin Lightener & Brightener, and Accelerated Acne Antidote.

 

My Blend is available at select Saks Fifth Avenue Locations, saksfifthavenue.com and Fred Segal (Santa Monica, California). You can also get more in-depth information on My Blend at myblendbeauty.com

 

Definitely check out My Blend, it’s really great!
