Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipsticks
This unique formula is enriched with new-generation 3D glowing pigments for lips that look lit-from-within and an optical ‘matte-trick’ to create the appearance of wider, fuller lips. Enriched with orchid extract for antioxidant, SPF protection and hydration and seed extracts from “The Lipstick Tree,” a plant extract that is exclusive to Charlotte Tilbury, Matte Revolution does not dry the lips and stays put, unlike most other matte lipsticks. It has the feel of a nourishing balm but is power-packed with pigments for a high-performance finish that enables you to build up colour from a stain to a full block of pigment.

Layer and build the color to create the intensity you want, from a light-as-air matte stain to dramatic full-velvet coverage. Color glides on easily and precisely, thanks to the specially shaped square-tip, inspired by the classic shape of a lip brush. Available in 12 luminous modern-matte shades that suit every skin tone.

Available in: Lost Cherry, Sexy Sienna, Amazing Grace, Birkin Brown, Glastonberry, Bond Girl, Red Carpet Red, Walk of Shame, Love Liberty, Very Victoria, 1975 Red, Miss Kensington

Price: $32

Teen Choice Awards Makeup Get The Look: Sarah Hyland

Celebrity makeup artist, Allan Avendaño gave Sarah Hyland a simple, yet bold makeup look to complement her yellow two-piece outfit with turquoise jewelry.

Avendaño began creating Sarah’s look starting with the eyes first using the Pür Minerals Cease Crease Eye Shadow Primer to create a flawless base. He then used the Soul Mattes Eye Shadow Palette and applied the Confidant shade all over the eyelid. Using a fluffy crease brush, he patted Sidekick and Alter on the outer corners of the eye and blended the shades into the crease. He used that same shadow combination on the bottom lash line.

“To soften any hard edges, I buffed the BFF shade into the crease and used the Companion shade on the brow bone,” says Avendaño.

He then applied two coats of the Pür Minerals Big Look Mascara on the top lashes and one coat on the bottom before applying individual lashes.

Avendaño used the Pür Minerals Color Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow followed by the Pür Minerals 4-in-1 Liquid Foundation with SPF 15 in Blush Medium with a damp sponge for seamless application. To add dimension to Sarah’s face, he applied the Pür Minerals Mineral Glow on her cheekbones, temples and jawbones. He then applied the Pür Minerals Chateau Cheeks Pressed Powder Blush in Kinky on the apples of her cheeks to add more color.

To highlight, he used the Pür Minerals Afterglow Illuminating Powder on the high points of her cheekbones, the brow bones, the bridge of her nose, the inner corners of her eyes and her cupid’s brow.

To create full and bold-shaped brows, he used the Pür Minerals Wake Up Brows in Mocha and used the highlighter end to amplify the arch of her brow.

Avendaño finished off Sarah’s look by lining and filling in her lips with an orange-red lip liner and applied the Pür Minerals Chateau Kisses Plumping Lip Gloss in Foxy, giving her a hydrated, full and sexy pout.

New! Kiehl’s Sun Protection in 3 new formulas

This summer, Kiehl’s Since 1851 proudly introduces 3 NEW sun-protection formulas, ensuring both face and body are fully protected until the sun sets! I’ve attached press releases for more details and hi-res images are in the links at the bottom of this e-mail, and the line-up includes skincare for daily use, for eye protection, and for active or beach use:

Super-Fluid-UV_125ml_RENO

A must have for summer. I love this ultra thin lotion it absorbs quickly, smells great and leaves a matte finish on my skin. Perfect for my combo skin this paraben free sunscreen doesn’t feel greasy or make me break out. I use this prior to my makeup everyday to create a great base that feels good and protects my skin from sun damage.

Super Fluid UV 50ml
First up, for daily use: an improved formula of Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50+, a lightweight paraben-free formula that’s silky, non-greasy and leaves a matte finish on the skin. This formula is made for daily use, and creates a matte base alone, or under makeup, and is an efficient addition to your morning skincare regimen, ensuring that you’re protected every day. $38-$61.

201502_Clearly-Corrective-Dark-Circle-Perfector-SPF30_lg

Keihl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector wears like a BB cream. The formula is super light and blends easily. The touch of color instantly brightens my under eye area. The caffeine helps reduce the puffiness and dark circles. Between long summer nights and allergies this has been a lifesaver. It’s a great concealer that leaves my eyes looking brighter and more awake and not made up. On top of all that it has SPF  30 to protect my skin from sun damage!

Clearly Corrective™ Dark Circle Perfector with SPF 30
Instantly brightens and perfects the delicate eye area, reduces discoloration, and protects against future damage with SPF 30. The pigmented formula instantly brightens your under-eye area while shielding it from the sun’s damaging rays. Activated Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of under-eye circles, while caffeine helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. $38.

Kiehls_AquaLotion_SPF30

I usually opt for spray sunscreens as I find a lot of lotions are so heavy and don’t absorb well. Kiehl’s has changed my opinion with their Activated Sun Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Lotion. Its so incredibly lightweight and true to its name feels more like water than a lotion.

The lotion is so thin and light it was a breeze to apply and didn’t leave any residue. And with Broad Spectrum SPF30 it provides unbeatable protection. I use this on my face and body its so lightweight and doesn’t cause breakouts or leave any sticky feeling. And along with protecting my skin it contains antioxidants to repair my skin while it protects. I won’t be heading outdoors this summer without this in my bag.

Activated Sun ProtectorTM Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Water-Light Lotion for Face and Body
Formulated with an advanced combination of sun-filters to provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection in a unique water-like texture that feels weightless on skin. Antioxidant Vitamin E helps condition skin, as the formula transforms to a water-like, weightless texture on skin, leaving it smooth, refreshed and protected.
