Friday, August 9, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Prime Time

We love Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer so much that we’re giving it away as a limited-time gift with purchase!* And though we’ve all heard how great it is to use a primer, it can still be kind of tricky to nail down what exactly it does and how to use it. So we tapped Lori Taylor, Global Pro Lead Artist at Smashbox, to give us the priming basics. Smooth, silky skin, here we come!

Monday, July 22, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: With Lime Crime Zodiac Glitter

130719 Lera Lessons10003

Lime Crime’s Zodiac Glitter is one of those multipurpose beauty products that reinforces our belief that a little sparkle makes everything better. Our makeup artist Stacey Nishimoto used it to create a couple of different eye makeup looks that are subtle enough to wear anywhere—and not just the Electric Daisy Carnival. “Now you can wear glitter to Trader Joe’s or Starbucks!” Stacey says. “A touch of sparkle on your lids can be as subtle as the bling on your French manicure. Think of glitter as the fragrance you put on before you leave the house—it’s the last finishing touch. All you need is a spritz or a dab.”

Friday, June 21, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: The Baby Bun

130612-LESSONS_0084 130612-LESSONS_0115

If you’ve ever tried to find a middle ground between a full bun and letting your hair fall naturally, look no further. We got Ashlee Rose to walk us through creating The Baby Bun. It’s a sort of sleek, sort of messy hairdo that’s still subtle, but done-up enough to show that hey, you did put some effort in today.

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Island Punk Eyeliner

For Chanel’s 2014 Resort show in Singapore, makeup artist Peter Phillips created this two-toned black and turquoise cat-eye that, in our minds, evoked equal parts hell-raising pirate and tranquil turquoise seas. We thought it was the perfect punk-yet-still-pretty look for summer, so we got our own makeup artist, Stacey Nishimoto, to recreate it on Sophia. According to Stacey, the end goal is a clean top, and blended bottom—an architectural black line softened by a blue haze. Here are her steps!

Friday, May 10, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Bathing Beauties

IMG_4379

We’re not really the full-layer-of-makeup-on-the-beach type, but we can still admit that getting that perfect beach babe look isn’t as easy—or nearly as effortless—as it seems. Dewy (but not greasy) skin, salty (but not briny) hair and the ever-prescient threat of sunburn—the whole thing’s a bit precarious. And while our newly in-stock collection of bright zinc sunblock can spare you from the latter, we had to call in the big guns, that’s Bumble and bumble’s Jordan M, to tell us a thing or two about perfect beach hair. We grabbed photographer Brandon Harman and fav Kiwi blogger Ponyhunter and hop, skip, jumped over to Santa Monica to show you what’s what. All together, we’ve got you covered, whether you’ve spent the day surfing the waves… or the Internet.
