Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace Leaps into Spring with Four New Organic Spa Treatments.

 Just in time for spring, Qua Baths & Spa at Caesars Palace has added four organic spa treatments to its menu. These fresh new treatments are designed to firm, refresh and brighten skin using all-natural products and ingredients. Guests will be able to enjoy these eco-friendly treatments as a permanent part of the menu beginning March 9.

Tea & Sea Organic Body Scrub (50-minutes; $150)
Using powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals derived from organic white tea leaves and seaweed, the Tea & Sea Organic Body Scrub begins with a delicate citrus-kombucha tea body wash followed by an almond-orange fruit and nut scrub to cleanse and exfoliate the skin. Vichy shower streams warmed to perfection heat the body, while a scented coconut argan oil scalp massage is performed. Applied to warm, polished skin, the final application of body butter, containing grape stem cell, white tea and seaweed, melts in to the skin leaving it radiant and silky smooth.

Anti-Cellulite & Body Firming Wrap (50-minutes; $180)
Designed to tighten and firm the body using nature’s super-rich defense compounds found in coffee berries, this body wrap will enhance the appearance of skin’s texture with a combination of enzymes and formulated body-shaping complex. While skin is nourished and polished using all natural ingredients, a relaxing scalp and slimming massage will aid in stress-relief and detoxification transpiring a confident new radiance.

CoffeeBerry® Yoga Facial (50-minutes; $200)
The relaxing, anti-aging CoffeeBerry Yoga Facial is designed to improve areas that show the most signs of aging: face, neck, décolletage and hands. This all-natural, results-oriented treatment will reduce tension and stress levels as well as brighten and even overall skin tone. The synergetic effects of detoxification, massage, lifting techniques and increased circulation will leave the skin with a natural lift and smoother lines.

Qua Mystic Journey (75-minutes; $300)
This astonishing body and facial ritual combines the most lavish experiences beginning with a warm coconut argan oil application along the spine followed by a ginger lime sugar scrub. A soothing, organic body oil is applied before being gently wrapped in a blanket of warm towels during a stimulating scalp massage and restorative facial to stimulate the essential functions of the skin and aid in the repair of cell damage.

EMMANUELLE CHRIQUI’S HOLLYWOOD NIGHT OUT

Get the Look with Makeup Artist Sarah Uslan

Rushing may have been the theme of the day, but Emmanuelle Chriqui’s soft red lips and natural eyes show anything but haste. The Entourage star looked flawless at the 2nd Annual Hollywood Rush event held last Sunday, February 19 – all thanks to celebrity makeup artist Sarah Uslan of the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in LA.

Sarah offers up her step-by-step for creating Emmanuelle’s flawless finish here!

It’s In the Eyes: “I started with Bobbi Brown Brown Metal Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow and swiped a soft amount over the lid,” says Sarah. “Blending out the edges with my ring finger.” Follow with Bobbi Brown Really Black Ink Gel eyeliner paired with Dolce & Gabanna’s angled eyeliner brush to create a defined kitten eye. Start with a light amount of liner as close to the lash line as possible, then from the outside corner begin to build a thicker line while making sure that the angle faces up and out to achieve your cat-like look.

Glowing Skin: Using Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a foundation brush, start from the forehead and work down the middle of the face and then out to the jaw-line. Always be sure to blend the seam of the neck and the jaw. Then take Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Golden Light and dust over cheek bones and forehead to contour. Illamasqua Blush in Chased brushed to the apples of the cheeks with Dolce & Gabanna’s blush brush will give that perfect complimentary soft pink cheek you need when doing a red lip.

The Lips: “The perfect red for Emmanuelle was Dolce & Gabanna Lip Color in Scarlet which I traced over her lip with a lip brush and then patted on with the actual lipstick for more pigment.”

The Finish: Dust Dmk Powder in Dark Translucent over T-zone to cut any shine. Use Laura Mercier’s Brunette Brow Pencil to add definition to the brows. The final steps in completing this classic, clean and pretty look.

About Sarah Uslan 

Hello magazine referred to celebrity makeup artist, Sarah Uslan as the “makeup artist with the Midas touch.” Personally trained by Bobbi Brown, Sarah got her start when she met the world renowned artist and entrepreneur in their common hometown of Montclair, New Jersey. From Mercedes Benz-Fashion Week in New York, to QVC and the Today Show, Sarah learned fast and furiously what it meant to be a highly sought-after makeup artist. Crossing over to the other coast has not only opened the doors to an entirely new realm of makeup artistry, but the birth of a lifelong dream to start a business doing what she loves most…makeup of course. Her celebrity clients include Rose McGowan, Denise Richards and Emmanuelle Chriqui. For more information visit www.luxebeautyteam.com.
