Holiday Warm Weather Escape - Be Beauty-Ready for the Beach


The snow is falling, the holiday stress is starting to wear a bit thin, and thoughts naturally run to warm weather getaways filled with stress-free days on a remote beach.  Peeling off the layers and donning a swimsuit requires a bit of preparation to arrive glowing and and ready for the sun and sand. 


Start with exfoliation to brush off winter body skin, using a scrub that leaves behind smooth skin hydrated: try Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish.  Follow up with a glow-inducing body treatment:  Kopari Coconut Body Glow.  Finish up with a self-tanner that is simple to apply and creates a sun-kissed look:  try Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish.  


Prep your face and neck by using a mask that brightens as it gently exfoliates: try Glam Glow FlashMud Brightening Treatment.  Create a golden glow without sun damage with Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen. As you already know, using self-tanner does not protect you from the sun.  


Easy hair is one of the perks of vacation beauty, and that means no fussy or tricky hairstyles when heading to the beach.  Follow up with a leave-in conditioner that controls frizz and hydrates at the same time: try IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm.


Being beauty-ready before the plane even takes off means you can head straight to the beach upon landing knowing you look like you have been there a week already, rather than someone desperately escaping frigid temperatures with dry skin and a stressed out complexion.  Happy travels!

Victoria's Secret Angels Take Shanghai 2017


It seems like the holiday season doesn’t officially start until the Angels take to the runway in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Each year the show gets larger and more spectacular, featuring the hottest music artists perfuming while the supermodels strut down the runway in costumes that somehow seem to out-do those of the previous shows. 


This year the Angels traveled to Shanghai, to the enormous excitement of their eastern fans.  In a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show first the brand collaborated with legendary design house Balmain who created punk princess studded jackets with rhinestone and metal embellishments, pieces that were so stunning on their own you almost forgot they were being worn over lingerie on a supermodel.  Talk about a game changer.




Stars Harry Styles, Leslie Odom Jr., Miguel, and Chinese pianist Li Yundi rocked the runway while the models stomped to the beat in true rock-chick fashion.  Every year the VS designers up their game and this year was no exception, with the wings, thigh-high laced boots, exotic jewelry, carnivale costumes and headpieces that can only be described as decadent. 



Walking in her last show after a seventeen-year long career with VS, Alessandra Ambrosio took her final turn as an Angel to huge applause and love from her fans, as she moves on to new projects and adventures.  It’s hard to imagine the show without Alessandra, and she will be greatly missed.  The new crop of VS models some appearing in the show for the first time were star-struck walking alongside their idols like Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Sara Sampaio, Elsa Hosk, and Josephine Skriver. The fantasy bra honor went to Brazilian beauty Lais Ribero, to gasps of admiration from the audience. 



In one of the most heart-warming moments of the show Ming Xi proudly walking in front of her family and hometown stumbled on the runway, and like a true supermodel she gracefully rose, taking the hand of the sweetest of models Gizele Oliveira, and continued her walk smiling and winning the hearts and support of every person in the audience. 




The show has so many elements from supermodels, to international music artists, to extraordinary styling, that you see the whole package and not just the beautiful lingerie.  This year’s collection didn’t disappoint.  I know what’s on my Christmas list – do you?

How To Do Monochrome Makeup for the Holidays


Not every occasion calls for festive makeup, and sometimes you want your outfit to get all the attention, which makes this year’s monochrome beauty the perfect solution.  There is a palette for every complexion and so many shades to choose from, that this might just become your favorite holiday look.  If you prefer a nude palette, are timid with color, or in a hurry, then this look is the perfect solution for you.



Start by choosing a neutral to nude color palette that works with your complexion. Apply shadows, blush, contour and lips, building on the depth of the color by adding more product on top and remembering to always blend well to blur the edges.  You want to product to disappear and to shade rather than to add a lot of color.



A nude palette is equally as beautiful when it is matte or glowing so the choice is yours, and goes from day to night by simply layering more color and deepening the shades.  Adding a bit of highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, cupid’s bow, and eyebrow bones will let the light catch your skin and make you not disappear in dim light.  Bonus: these will become your favorite go-to versatile shades even after the holidays are over.
