Laura Mercier Bridal Beauty Twitter Chat.

Wedding season is in full swing and no one understands bridal beauty like Laura Mercier. After all, the creator of the “Flawless Face” technique knows that if there’s ever a day a woman wants to look flawless, it’s her wedding day. To help those blushing brides and doting bridesmaids, Laura’s planned a live Bridal Beauty twitter chat on Wednesday, June 20th, 2012 at 1:00 pm EST with Laura Mercier makeup artist and bridal beauty expert Pamela Massi.

Pamela has been doing bridal beauty for 13 years and has been recognized by InStyle as the Best Makeup Artist in Dallas in the Beauty Black Book. Even better, she’s a recent bride herself! Her strategy for bridal makeup is to “pull the natural beauty out of each individual and allow brides to look like themselves, but enhanced.”

Carly Rae Jepsen Loves Davines!

As you may have seen in the June 28th issue of US Weekly, pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen is a fan of the Davines For Wizards No. 14 Sea Salt Primer! The culprit behind this summer’s biggest hit, “Call Me Maybe,” finds that the Sea Salt Primer is a must-have when she wants her hair to have that “beachy feel.”

This salt-infused styling spray ($26 at www.davines.com) allows you to capture that “just-off-the-beach” texture anywhere your life takes you. Simply apply to wet or dry hair with your fingertips for natural-looking wind-blown waves, as well as bombshell-body with a matte finish and a dry look.

Just in Time For Father’s Day: New Men’s Products Available From Kiehls.

Men have always been an integral part of our business at Kiehl’s, whether they visited the original apothecary for health remedies, or stopped in to pick up some White Eagle Shave Cream and check out the motorcycles.

As we continue to serve our male patrons, I’m pleased to share with you our newest men’s products launching this month, to help men shave, moisturize and protect their skin.

First, a brand-new way to cleanse and shave in one step. Facial Fuel Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel is a dual-action formula that is both a superbly foaming gel shave product and an effective cleanser. The versatile formula provides our male customers with two options for use and the opportunity to cleanse and shave in one step…in one swipe!

Facial Fuel Sky Flyin’ Foaming Multi-Gel is $19, available at Kiehls.com.

After the shave, gentlemen can reach for Facial Fuel “No Shine” Hydrator. A breakthrough formulation allowing men to control shine and sweat while providing 24-hour hydration. Men tend to have thicker, denser skin, which can lead to the production of more sebum and sweat than women, and this formula was created specifically to address that concern.

Facial Fuel “No Shine” Hydrator is $21, available at Kiehls.com

And finally, before leaving the house—not just in the summer, but every day–always, ALWAYS apply sun protection. We are pleased to introduce Facial Fuel UV Guard SPF 50+. This ultra lightweight and fast-absorbing formula is fragrance-free, water-resistant and utilizes Kiehl’s tried and true Facial Fuel energizing ingredients, and is clinically proven to provide superior UV protection.

Facial Fuel UV Guard, SPF 50+ is $34, available at Kiehls.com

One last thing…if the men in your life happen to visit the Upper East Side of New York, may I suggest an Old School Brush and Blade Shave at Kiehl’s Spa 1851? Spa 1851 is a true unisex spa, offering a comprehensive list of services for men, including shaves, haircuts, facials and massages. Learn more at www.kiehls.com/Spa1851


Get The Look: Anna Paquin’s True Blood Emmy Magazine Photo Shoot

Do you want to look as alluring as Anna Paquin in this weekend’s season premiere of True Blood? With a little help from Too Faced, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Amy Nadine revamped dull matte makeup with a sultry spin just like Sookie, at this Emmy Magazine photo shoot! “I used Too Faced’s Matte Eye Eyeshadow Collection, $36, because I love having all my matte shadows in one palette,” Amy said. Here’s how to create the look:

Too Faced’s Matte Eye Eyeshadow Collection

LASHLINE: Sweep shadow in Midnight back and forth along your top and bottom lashlines like you would a pencil to emphasize eyes.

LID: Dust Coffee Bean all over your lid.

CREASE: Trace shadow in Chinchilla directly in the crease of your lid for depth.

EDGE BLENDING: Blend the edges of the shadow with Tufted Suede. It will soften any hard lines for a subtle hint of smoke.
