Red Carpet Beauty How-To: Kate Mara

Celebrity makeup artist Coleen Campbell-Olwell used Orlane products to create Kate Mara’s stunning look for the red carpet premiere of ‘Transcendence’ and gave us the beauty breakdown.
 
“For Kate’s look tonight, she’s wearing a gorgeous, gold Valentino dress with swept-up hair, so we decided to do bold and metallic shadows on her eyes with a pop of color and luminous, radiant skin.
Since the weather in LA is so warm and dry, I started by massaging in Orlane’s Super-Moisturizing Light Cream for extra hydration.  This product is a staple in my kit!  It really preps the skin so that the foundation goes on smoothly.
 
I then dabbed on Orlane’s Absolute Skin Recovery Eye Contour under her eyes.  Next, I mixed two drops of the Morning Recovery Concentrate into Chanel’s Vitalumiere Foundation for extra luminosity and applied it with a dampened Beauty Blender.
 
For extra definition, I contoured under her cheekbones with a medium-sized fluffy brush and Orlane’s Bronzer in Soleil Cuivre 02.  This bronzer is perfect for contouring because it is matte and looks so natural.  Then, to add a hint of peach to the apples of her cheeks, I swirled on Dior’s Blush in Amber Show.
 
On Kate’s eyes, I applied metallic and gold shadows and used a purple accent for a pop of color.  I decided to forgo false lashes and instead lined her top lash line with Antonym’s Certified Natural Eye Pencil in Noir.  To add density to her lashes, I took a small, dense shadow brush and smudged it in.  Then, I applied two coats of Orlane’s Volume Care Mascara.  I LOVE this mascara as it creates such long, lush lashes
 
I love Kate’s lip color, so we went au natural and just applied a balm on top to keep them hydrated.
 
To finish off the look, I used Orlane’s Highlight Care Brush to add extra glow to the top of her cheekbones, the inside corner of her eyes, and the top of her lip line. Lastly, I dusted Orlane’s Translucent Loose Powder on her t-zone.”

Top Nail Polish Trends For March 2014: Soft Pastels, Sheer White, Shades of Blue & Deep Corals Lead the Path To Spring

Straight from the runway to fingertips everywhere, nail polish has become a key indicator of up-to-the-minute trends. Today, fast-growing beauty brand Julep released its latest Nail Polish Color Report, a monthly snapshot of top nail polish trends based on customer preferences and recent sales data.
"Pay attention to fingertips, because what women wear on their nails is a harbinger for larger trends – both fashion-focused and economic," said Jane Park, CEO and founder of Julep Beauty.  "Most 'trends' in the beauty and fashion worlds are decided by editors and designers, but the Julep Nail Polish Color Report unveils actual style movements women are adopting across the US."
At the beginning of each month, Julep introduces ten nail polish colors to its thousands of Maven subscriptionprogram customers. During the Monthly Maven Reveal, subscribers choose from a selection of curated beauty boxes, and select add-on products. Julep analyzes all this data to paint an accurate picture of current nail color trends.
"After suffering through some extreme weather patterns this winter, women are ready to forget the Polar Vortex, severe drought, and heavy flooding and embrace spring," said Park. "Consumer confidence is on the rise; women seem to be in a more positive mood and are choosing light pastels and sheer white for their nails. They're also taking inspiration from runway trends and embracing blues of all shades and deep corals."
March Nail Polish Trends:
Soft pastels:  Sherbet shades like Julep's Rae, a radiant orchid creme that's an exact match to the Pantone® 2014 Color of the Year; Elisa, a soft wisteria shimmer; and Lilou, a lemon chiffon creme, were top sellers in Julep's March Maven box.
Sheer white: White is always a fresh choice for spring, and consumers and fashion designers alike are gravitating toward airy, alabaster tones with translucent finishes. It's unsurprising that Julep's Soraphine, a classic sheer white creme, was a top choice for March.
All things blue: Blues of all shades – from cobalt to pale cornflower – made a strong statement on the spring runway. Julep's Monaco, a dazzling mariner blue creme that's an exact match to the Pantone® 2014 Color of Spring; Margaret, a light periwinkle creme; and Tania, a mermaid teal glitter, were also top sellers.
Deep coral:  Pink, red, and orange-tinted coral hues dominated the runway at Spring Fashion Week. In March, Julep Mavens went crazy over Harriet, a guava coral creme shade that brings French Riviera flair to nails.

Red Carpet Beauty: Emily VanCamp At The Premiere Of Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Emily VanCamp Votre Vu Captain America The Winter Soldier Red CarpetCelebrity makeup artist Rosie Johnston is the artist behind this beauty look! For Emily’s look, Rosie took inspiration from her dress which was a short Monique Lhuillier number with long sleeves.  “It’s very sexy, but very demure and classic at the same time.”  Rosie and Emily wanted to do something that was sleek, modern, yet sophisticated.

The look for tonight really focused Emily’s eyes.  “We went for a not so traditional smokey eye paired with really nude lips.  To start, Rosie began by applying Votre Vu’s Champagne Kisses to Emily’s lips to prep them for the lipstick later on.  The lip balm is infused with Vitamin E and champagne grape seed oil so it intensely moisturizes the lips and creates a great base for lipstick.  Rosie kept Emily’s skin looking super fresh and clean using a combination of Kevyn Aucoin and Chanel foundations.  To add a subtle flush to her cheeks, Rosie used Votre Vu’s Vu-On Rouge in Bouquet Rose and applied it using a foundation brush on the apples of her cheeks and blending up a little.

To prep the eyes and make the colors pop, Rosie first applied Votre Vu’s Lingerie Pour Les Yeux in Light all over Emily’s lids.  Then she went in with the nude-bronze shade from the Palette Play in Copper and swept that all over the lid.  Focusing next on the eyeliner, Rosie took the Le Joli Crayon in Charbon and lined her eyes with it.  To smoke out the liner, Rosie then took the deep violet and black shades from the Palette Play in Violette and blended out the liner using a flat, wide eye shadow brush.  “The eye shadow palette is amazing; the colors are so gorgeous and really created the look we were going for.”  To finish off the eyes, Rosie applied lots of individual lashes and then three coats of Votre Vu’s Eiffel Power to give volume and length.

For her brows, using Arch de Triumphe in Warm and an angled brush, Rosie filled in Emily’s brows, combed them out, and then filled them in again, repeating this step 3 times for a “natural, yet defined look.”

“We always try to keep Emily’s look soft and sexy, but with a little bit of edge.”

Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your Makeup

Let’s face it, buying makeup can get expensive. And the only thing worse than the expense is realizing that you really don’t use certain products very often. Did you know many of the products you have can serve more than one purpose?
With that in mind, Casey Casterline, co-founder of eDivv.com, a popular beauty sample swapping site, offers up some ways to get the most out of the makeup in your daily regimen.
“I live in a small New York City apartment, if I didn't come up with creative ways to use the products, I wouldn't have any place to sleep,” says Casterline. The following tips are great ways to use products in a unique fashion or have them pull double-duty.
Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your Makeup
  • Mascara Wands
    • Use as eyebrow brushes or spritz a little hairspray on them and use to tame pesky flyaways.
  • Foundation
    • If it doesn’t match your skin tone it may serve perfectly as an eye shadow primer.
  • Lip Sticks
    • Have your lipstick pull double-duty as a blush if you realize you’ve run out at the last minute.
  • Powder Eye Liner
    • Add a little water to powder eye liner to turn it into a liquid for a different look.
  • Eye Shadow
    • Shadows that match your roots can easily be brushed in to hide them if your hair has grown out a bit.
    • Apply a dark shadow to your eyelashes prior to your mascara to give them a boost in volume.
  • Plain Lip Balm
    • Apply around the inside of the eye with your finger to act as a highlighter.
  • Hairspray
    • Allow a light mist of hairspray to fall on your face after you’ve applied your makeup to set it for the day.
  • Eye Cream
    • Use a hydrating eye cream in the place of lip balm if you run out. It will keep your lips supple and give them a light shine.
About eDivv.com: eDivv launched in 2014 and was created by Casey Casterline and Jon Katz. It was the first online community created exclusively for users to swap beauty samples. As an avid subscriber to many beauty subscription boxes, Casey was frequently frustrated when she received products that she wasn’t interested in. In response, Casey and Jon went on a mission to develop a platform that would bring users together to effectively facilitate the trading of beauty samples in a fun and effortless way.

Dr. Pearlman Leads The Way In Innovation For Facial Rejuvenation

Recently, I was invited to visit Dual Board Certified NY Plastic Surgeon Dr. Steven Pearlman as he hosted an Open House event for NYC's top beauty editors at his Park Avenue offices.

We got the VIP treatment as we toured the facilities and a chatted with Dr. Pearlman about both his practice, at large and his new revolutionary techniques. Dr. Pearlman discussed his new patented "Pearl Lift" procedure, which offers stackable treatments, that provide facial rejuvenation to those patients that want the results of a facelift, without the surgery and recovery time. He also informed us of best practices for anti-aging, quashed some common plastic surgery misconceptions, and answered other important plastic surgery queries.
Live demonstrations were performed on celebrity models Gina Marie Zimmerman, who placed second on the last season of "Big Brother" and Angelina Pivarnick of "The Jersey Shore." Both reality stars affably posed for pictures for all the attendees. Donna Fay "The Beauty Expert", who consults and performs some of the treatments with Dr. Pearlman., was on hand to answer additional questions.

Refreshments were provided by Passionne de Fiore Prosecco, Fragoli, Vrou Water and Garguilo Bakery. VIP Gift bags included items from Jing Ai Cosmetics, Grande Lash, and bioCorneum® and a gift card for a treatment at Dr. Pearlman's office.

Dr. Pearlman was a gracious host. "I would like to thank everyone who attended. They were a
wonderful group and quite knowledgeable about facial aging and anti-aging treatments. I hope the information we provided on the Pearl Lift, as a true minimally invasive method to reverse all aspects of facial aging, was valuable."

About Dr. Pearlman
For over 20 years, Dr. Pearlman has remained fervent in his quest to provide the very best treatments to his patients. He is a distinguished Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon, educator and humanitarian with a wide range of professional credentials. Dr. Pearlman is also dual board certified in both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and in Head and Neck Surgery. President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 2004-2005.

With extensive clinical and academic backgrounds in both fields, Dr. Pearlman provides his patients with a unique expertise and understanding in the cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose, face, and eyes. Dr. Pearlman’s achievements include:

  • Director of the Division of Facial Plastic Surgery at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital.
  • Director for the Center for Aesthetic Facial Surgery for the New York Head and Neck Institute of the Northshore-L I J Hospital System.
  • Founding President of the New York Facial Plastic Surgery Society–a society founded in 1993 to promote advanced education for Facial Plastic Surgeons in the New York Metropolitan area. It provides a forum for accomplished, practicing physicians to exchange ideas, new techniques and procedures on a continuing basis.
  • Attending surgeon at Lenox Hill and Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospitals–both prestigious hospitals, world renown for Facial Plastic Surgery.
  • Dr. Pearlman has been invited as a visiting professor throughout the Continental USA as well as abroad.
  • Dr. Pearlman is also a Clinical Associate Professor at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.


As a humanitarian, Dr. Pearlman participated in Face to Face, a humanitarian and educational surgical exchange program conducted under the sponsorship of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In the United States and abroad, AAFPRS surgeons provide complimentary care to those who suffer from facial deformities caused by birth or trauma. The Face to Face program offers individuals the opportunity to overcome the physical limitations placed on them by circumstances beyond their control–deformities at birth, domestic violence, and war. He traveled to China, Honduras and Vietnam, providing pro bono surgery on children and adults. In addition to pro bono surgical services, Dr. Pearlman, along with his colleagues, provided additional education to local doctors on advanced and new surgical techniques in the field of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Pearlman also participates in the National Domestic Violence Project, as a pro bono facial
reconstructive surgeon. Professional Members, such as Dr. Pearlman, volunteer to help victims of
domestic abuse, who cannot afford to receive treatment for facial injuries. These efforts repair both physical and psychological scars and help empower women to regain self-esteem as well as begin to rebuild their lives.
