bareMinera​ls Seeks to 'Foundatio​n Fit' 50,000 Women in Six Weeks



bareMinerals champions its award-winning foundation franchise, now available in three ground-breaking formulas, by setting out to ‘foundation fit’ 50,000 women nationwide to ensure they are wearing the correct foundation shade. Based upon the notion that there is no bigger beauty faux pas than looking like you’re wearing foundation, bareMinerals will host over 1,500 ‘foundation fitting’ events from September 1, 2012 through October 14, 2012 to coincide with the launch of its first-ever solid bareMinerals READY® SPF 20 Foundation.

bareMinerals READY® SPF 20 Foundation joins its award-winning ORIGINAL and MATTE foundations all offering unique skin-nourishing benefits in addition to different finishes. Available in 20 skin-baring shades, bareMinerals foundations offer no visible trace of makeup, no parabens or harsh chemicals, no dreaded line of demarcation– nothing to see except your best skin ever. Invisible long-wearing coverage will have others complimenting your skin (not your makeup).

bareMinerals ‘foundation fitting’ events will kickoff on September 1st at select bareMinerals boutiques, Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Dillard’s locations nationwide. Over the course of six weeks, 50,000 women will receive a complimentary customized ‘foundation fitting’ followed by a bareMinerals make-under; a step-by-step application instruction that allows the client to discover her unique natural beauty, using products to enhance every feature she wants to reveal. bareMinerals has long stood for a natural no-makeup look and feel ever since revolutionizing the industry with the launch of its ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation in 1995. It’s not about covering up or hiding behind a mask of makeup. It’s about championing and enhancing a woman’s natural beauty.

Alicia Silverstone Collection for Juice Beauty Review

Purely, Organically Gorgeous

Juice Beauty, the California eco chic company known for offering high efficacy, yet authentically organic beauty products, is proud to announce a collaboration with actress and NY Times best selling author, Alicia Silverstone. The Alicia Silverstone Collection for Juice Beauty consists of everyday essentials for effortless beauty, from organic skincare to quick application organic color.

The collaboration started when Alicia and Karen Behnke, founding partner of Juice Beauty, realized that they shared the same life eco values. Alicia and Karen subsequently held their first meeting at an organic cafe in Los Angeles and a partnership was born. Alicia and Juice Beauty's team worked hard for over a year developing these very special products that will now premier worldwide. Not only are the ingredients cutting edge but the sustainable packaging is groundbreaking.

Alicia Silverstone is an actress (Clueless, Batman & Robin, The Art of Getting By, Butter, and The Crush), film and television producer, author (The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet), and animal rights and environmental activist.



After using this line for over a month, my favorites are the Simply Pure Chamomile Cleanser ($22), Simply Nourishing Moisturizer ($36), and Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter ($22). I just started using a moisturizer earlier part of this year. I was barely able to use one in the past, because my skin would break out easily. I still experience breakouts every now and then, but it isn't bad as it used to be since I'm nearing my 30s. I don't exactly have dry skin either, but I like to use products that will combat the early onset signs of aging. I love to alternate between their moisturizer and Jurlique's Purely Sun-Defying Moisturizer with SPF 15 Sunscreen ($58), because both deeply moisturize the skin with powerful anti-aging ingredients. They also give my face a warm and healthy glow.

The Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter ($22) gives my cheeks a hint of a natural flush. The delightfully light shade of pink works with all skin tones. Antioxidant-rich passionfruit and hydrating essential oils contributes to the radiant glow that it gives. I also love Alicia's signature Purely Kissable Lip Color ($16). The light pink shade is simply gorgeous, but sadly I didn't really get to enjoy it much as the other products since this one came half melted. I can easily understand why since the weather has been insanely hot this summer.

Lastly, my least favorite product is the Simply Flawless Pressed Powder ($24). I simply don't really like powder to begin with, because I think it adds age to the skin. It also seems to accentuate fine lines. I didn't find their product to be any better than other powder out there, even though it is organic.

All five products in the collection are authentically organic and antioxidant rich with luxurious ingredients, such as passionfruit, champagne grape, acai, goji berries, and minerals that are blended in an organic aloe and shea butter base. All of the products are manufactured in environmentally friendly, recycled, and recyclable packaging. The skincare products are packaged in over 95% post consumer recycled materials, while the make-up products are constructed with over 90% recycled pressed paper components.

Grand Central Terminal Gets First Ever Bobbi Brown Pop-Up Store



Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is proud to announce the launch of the brand’s first-ever pop-up store location. First stop, New York City’s Grand Central Terminal.

“I am so excited to be opening our first pop-up shop in the US,” says Bobbi Brown, makeup artist and Founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, “A broad cross-section of women pass through Grand Central every day, so it is the perfect location to be in the middle of all of the excitement and capture women on-the-go.”

The design of Bobbi Brown “The Pop-Up”—located in the Lexington Passage—is exclusive to the brand’s new pop-up locations around the world. Uniquely designed, the architecture will be flattened into wallpaper, which will also depict photos of Bobbi in action around the globe and iconic products from the brand. Incorporating personal touches and elements from Bobbi’s office in SoHo, the shop’s industrial design will mimic Bobbi’s design aesthetic at her Montclair free-standing store featuring heavy metal furniture, Emeco 1001 chairs, stainless steel rolling tables, and the iconic Bobbi signature in neon lights. The shop will be easy to navigate while keeping with the chic and streamlined interiors of all Bobbi Brown counter locations worldwide.

At 800 sq ft, “The Pop-Up” will house the entire collection of color cosmetics, fragrance and skincare, with a special focus on the new Long-Wear Foundation and Creamy Matte Lipcolor collections. Five makeup artists will be in store at all times to provide iconic Bobbi Brown high-touch service including 5-minute "instant pretty" touch ups and free makeup lessons. Bobbi’s personal manicurist, Roza Israel, will set up shop for the grand opening, offering 10-minute manicures to consumers and commuters alike on a first come-first serve basis.

Just in time for the holidays, the pop-up shop will be the perfect location to stop in before or after work for makeup application or party touch ups, or to stock up on gifts and stocking stuffers. To date, the brand plans to keep the shop open until January 2013.

"This pop-up shop will enable us to connect directly with our consumers,” says Maureen Case, President of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, “It will showcase some of the best elements from our global free-standing stores, will bring the best of Bobbi to life, and will have a halo effect on consumers shopping in other locations closer to home."

Store hours are M-F/ 8AM-8PM; SAT/10AM-7PM; SUN/11AM-6PM.

Bridal Beauty Blunders, Be Gone!



The last thing you need on the most exciting, happy and stressful day of your life is to worry about the way you look. That’s why when beauty problems happen on the big day, brides tend to panic and let it ruin the mood of elation that comes with such a wonderful time. Don’t sweat it:bridal beauty expert, Ashley Stone of Beauty Entourage, shares some of the worst beauty issues she’s witnessed, and how to deal with them.

Bridezilla Breakouts



Unfortunately, stress can be a serious factor when it comes to the health of your skin. For this reason, many brides find themselves with an unsightly blemish on the days leading up to their wedding. Ashley explains, “As much as you don’t want to think about it, spontaneous breakouts do happen, and all the bridezilla moments in the world won’t help the situation. I always tell my brides to relax, and whip out my personal arsenal of coverage products. If you’re doing your own makeup for the big day, first apply a spot treatment, and then use your fingers to apply concealer to the blemish. MAC Studio Finish Concealer is water resistant and makes skin look flawless. Every bride should have this product handy just in case!”

Hectic Hair



Hair is the biggest wildcard on the day of your wedding. Because it’s affected by everything from weather to stress to joyous dancing, having a stash of emergency products could be your saving grace on the big day. Ashley says, “Even with the best beauty team, things happen. And once your hair and makeup team goes home, you’re left to fend for yourself when it comes to touch ups and quick fixes. Depending on the bride, I recommend certain products to be on hand. For example, if your scalp tends to get a little greasy in the heat, dry shampoo goes a long way to prevent that unwanted glean; my favorite is KMS Makeover Spray. Particularly if your hair is down, this will revive and add volume. If your hair frizzes in heat or humidity, it’s important to have an anti-frizz serum like Bumble and Bumble Defrizz for touch-ups. You need to know your hair and its habits, and plan accordingly.”

Maddening Makeup



What’s worse than sweeping your finger under your eye and finding mascara or liner? Doing that on your wedding day! Ashley suggests, “On the big day, the last thing you need to worry about is your makeup. Choose products that are long lasting and stay put, allowing you to look flawless both in person and in your photos. I always recommend using a lip stain over a lipstick, where you can get the color you want without the worry of smudging. Make sure that you have a clear gloss to touch up throughout the day, which will keep the stain fresh and prevent it from drying out, as well as brighten the color. Also, if you’re a summer bride, invest in waterproof eye makeup and my personal favorite foundation, Laura Mercier’s Powder Foundation. This will set your makeup and keep your face from appearing shiny in your photos. Keep all of your beauty products stashed in the bridal suite, and enlist one of your bridesmaids to give you a hand.”

“I can’t say the next two words enough: trial run. The last thing you need is to be unhappy with your look on the day of your wedding. Make sure that either yourself or your beauty team crafts a style that reflects your own unique personality and that makes you feel beautiful. Because in the end, that’s all that matters!” says Ashley.

Top 10 Beauty Quotes



I want to grow old without facelifts... I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I've made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you'd never complete your life, would you? You'd never wholly know you. - Marilyn Monroe

“You know when I feel inwardly beautiful? When I am with my girlfriends and we are having a goddess circle.” – Jennifer Aniston



Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical. - Sophia Loren

“I look my best after an entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me. When do I feel my best? When I haven’t looked in a mirror for days, and I’m doing things that make me happy.” – Anne Hathaway

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” - Audrey Hepburn

“My mother always told me that no matter how late it is, you take your makeup off. Take it off!” – Catherine Zeta-Jones



People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves. - Salma Hayek



For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. - Audrey Hepburn

I don't want my wrinkles taken away - I don't want to look like everyone else. - Jane Fonda

The most beautiful make-up of a woman is passion, but cosmetics are easier to buy. - Yves Saint Laurent
