Get The Look: Jessica Chastain 87th Academy Awards

Jessica Chastain The 87th Academy Awards ~ Los Angeles, CA ~ Feb. 22, 2015
Makeup by Kristofer Buckle for Kiehl’s

“Before we began, I applied a layer of Kiehl’s Creme De Corps to make sure Jessica’s arms, legs, and décolletage were as flawless as her face. Applying the lotion first gave it plenty of time to absorb.”

“All makeup application needs a great base, so I prepped Jessica’s skin with Kiehl’s Hydro Plumping Re-texturizing Serum. It works wonders as a primer and is extremely moisturizing. I then added a thin layer of Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream, and applied Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado around her eyes. This was followed by Kiehl’s BB Cream in Light – Jessica is very fair, so it’s crucial to have both the right amount of coverage and SPF 50 all in one product.”

“I then used my Kristofer Buckle Always Flawless Day to Night Palette and YSL Couture Variation Palette to create a soft brown winged eye. By using shadow, I was able to create a softer look than liquid liner. YSL Volume Waterproof Mascara was applied to add drama to her eyes. To finish the look, I used Kristofer Buckle Absolute Nude Lip Crayon in Nude Subdued over Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 for a clean, sophisticated lip.”

Kesh Beauty: The All-In-One Winter Beauty Solution

kesh beauty argan oil

I’m always on the hunt for great skincare and was excited to learn about Kesh Beauty Argan Oil. Their argan oils are 100% organic and can soothe so many issues with just one bottle. First thing is I really love the pump dispenser, I have done the oils in a open cap bottle and its always gets messy.

Kesh Beauty’s Argan oils are light and smell amazing  my favorite is the Orange Blossom. I love how quickly it absorbs into my skin leaving it hydrated and so smooth. My hands always get dry this time of year and I love how quickly  Kesh Beauty Argan Oil has healed my dry skin. Even after repeated hand washing my skin stays soft, smooth and hydrated.  I like to apply right out of the shower and when I heat style my hair a drop leaves my hair shiny and flyway free.
Kesh Beauty Agran Oil
Winter’s low temperatures and lack of humidity wreak havoc on the skin. Thanks to frigid conditions outside and artificial heat inside, moisture levels plummet and leave dry, itchy, flaky skin in their wake—but Kesh Beauty’s Argan Oil ($40, KeshBeauty.com) is the only product necessary to soothe a variety of winter beauty woes.

Available in Pure (unscented) and infused with Orange Blossom or Rose Essence, Kesh Beauty Argan Oils are 100% organic, and an effective, natural alternative to synthetic skincare products. Ideal for all skin types (including sensitive and acne-prone), argan oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids that protect skin from the elements, reinforce the skin’s barrier and help the skin retain moisture.

Perfect for winter-weary skin and hair, Kesh Beauty’s Argan Oils have many season-specific uses:

  • Hydrate dry, chapped hands and cuticles
  • Use instead of facial moisturizer to restore moisture and boost radiance
  • Apply after showering while skin is still damp for long-lasting hydration
  • For an intense foot treatment, apply at bedtime before slipping into cotton socks
  • Use as a deep conditioning treatment for soft, shiny hair
  • Apply after hair styling to prevent static and tame flyaways
  • Add to bath water to provide skin with extra moisture
  • Use in place of lip balm for chapped, cracked lips

Kesh Beauty uses only the highest quality, natural ingredients, and our argan oils are certified 100% organic by the U.S. National Organic Program. Our unique spray dispensers minimize waste by delivering the perfect dose, while preventing contamination so our preservative-free argan oils stay fresher, longer. Imported directly from a cooperative in Southern Morocco, Kesh Beauty’s argan oils are extracted from the fresh kernels of the Argan fruit tree using the same ancient techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.

New! bareMinerals Complexion Rescue

complexion resuce

Perfection now available in a tube. I love the look of perfected skin but can’t handle the feeling of most foundations or CC Creams. They feel fine going on but get oily and disappear as the day wears on. I was excited to hear about Complexion Rescue and see how it could help my skin.

I started using bareMinerals Complexion Rescue just over a week ago and I am definitely starting to see improvements in my skin. But let’s start with how it feels. Its very light and super hydrating but doesn’t feel heavy. It must be the magic of a gel cream because it manages to create a flawless canvas but feels like I am just wearing a moisturizer. Most days one dab will do perfect. But if my skin is being particularly annoying I can layer to get smooth, flawless coverage.

Dual fiber brush

By the end of the first week my skin was noticeably more hyrdrated. Little trouble dry spots were all but gone. This is a great option for ladies like myself with combo skin. It combats the dryness without aggravating the oily spots. And just a small dab on my Dual Fiber Brush and I can get the most perfect coverage. I love how bright and healthy this leaves my skin looking and the more I use it the better my skin looks. This is one product my beauty cabinet won’t go without.
