Cool Down with Greek Yoghurt!

s1522606-main-Lhero

One of the best products I have tried this year. With combo skin it can be hard to find the balance of moisture without going overboard or skimping either way creating more oil. I had never tried a “sleep facial” and I was interested to see how this would feel. The product is light and fluffy like a mousse it has an amazing fresh yogurt smell and when you put it on your skin it has a cooling effect. It absorbed quickly and my face felt smooth and moisturized and fresh. The next morning I wake up and my skin feels great and the best part no oily feeling or the need to immediately run and wash my face.

The change in my skin in one night was enough to sell me. With continued use my skin is feeling better and my pores are starting to shrink up a bit. After two weeks I have noticed my skin is less oily all day and never oily in the morning. Thank you Korres for a great moisturizer that doesn’t overwhelm my combo skin!

I love the idea of makeup primers but find so many of them too heavy or they tend to make my face oily. Korres Greek Yoghurt Primer is the perfect balance for my combo skin. The formula is very lightweight and silicone free, it absorbs instantly leaving a perfected canvas for my makeup.

I love the fresh scent of this primer, I just need a pea sized amount and my pores appear smaller and my makeup goes on smoothly and stays put. My skin feels much better all day and since its silicone free I don’t have any weird oily or plastic feel to my skin.

Selena Gomez at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards: Get The Look with John Frieda Hair Care‏

Teen Choice Awards 2014 - Arrivals

INSPIRATION: Selena’s very tailored Saint Laurent suit

GET THE LOOK: This look “weaves confident, youthful, sexy, a hint of bold, but still very sweet,” said celebrity stylist Lona Vigi

  • To start, Vigi misted Selena’s hair with an Evian atomizer in order to prep her hair and keep it in the cleanest condition.
  • Next, she applied a dime sized amount of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Original Six Effects Serum into her hands, and rubbed them together before going into Selena’s hair, starting at the roots and pulling all the way to the ends. “This serum is like a BB Cream for the hair,” said Vigi. “It covers so many vital bases that you end up using multiple products for, instead you can cut all of that out of the equation and just have this one master product.”
  • In the front, Vigi sprayed John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray while the hair was still damp in order to keep all the little baby hairs around the frame of the face tamed down.
  • Then, while blowing drying on a medium heat with the Harry Josh Pro Tools Dryer, Vigi sprayed the hair continuously to ensure the hair stayed back into the ponytail.
  • Next Vigi clipped the hair up and took super small sections and went over them with a flat iron, getting as close to the scalp as possible.
  • Vigi created a center part and then gathered Selena’s hair by the nape of her neck to create the ponytail. Once it was secure, she patted John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Touch-Up Creme into the ponytail so that it looked extra strong and shiny. “We wanted the ponytail to be the accessory to her look,” said Vigi.
  • As a final touch, Lona secured the ponytail with a long, black ribbon.

Shailene Woodley Beauty Look: Teen Choice Awards‏

FOX's 2014 Teen Choice Awards - Press Room

Last night celebrity makeup artist, Roxy, was behind the scenes with Shailene Woodley getting her red carpet ready for the Teen Choice Awards, where she picked up awards for Choice Movie Actress in an Action/Adventure for her role in Divergent and Choice Movie Actress in a Drama, for her role in The Fault in our Stars.

“We wanted to keep Shailene’s makeup clean and not competitive with her gorgeous and colorful Peter Pilotto dress,” said Roxy. “Using monochromatic colors on her eyes and cheeks, I defined her features to make them pop while not overwhelming her with color. Her soft plum rose lip – which we created using tarte’s LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in hope, was the perfect finishing touch to her ultra-feminine look.”

Roxy began by spraying Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir Spray all over Shailene’s face, neck and décolletage to revive, sooth and hydrate her skin. She then prepped her skin further, applying tarte’s clean slate™ flawless 12-hr brightening primer with tarte’s the buffer™ airbrush finish bamboo foundation brush which helped spread the primer all over the face, evenly and fast. “This primer gives off a subtle sheen while delivering a blend of vitamins to the skin and holds makeup for hours,” said Roxy.

Roxy applied tarte’s Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in fair-light honey with tarte’s airbuki bamboo powder foundation brush all over the face in circular motions to melt the makeup into Shailene’s skin. “I started at the center of her face and blended out to her jawline until it was seamless,” said Roxy. “This powder foundation does an excellent job at providing great coverage while leaving the complexion still looking natural with a velvet-like finish.”

“Since color was not a big part of this look, I wanted to do more with sculpting to bring out her beautiful features,” said Roxy. She played up the definition on Shailene’s gorgeous cheek bones with tarte’s Amazonian clay matte waterproof bronzer in park ave princess™. For this look Roxy applied the bronzer right under Shailene’s cheek bones and softly at her temples.

“Since glowing skin is always a priority to us, I applied Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Aqua Foundation Illuminator down the bridge of her nose, around the outer corners and above her brows in a C shape manner,” said Roxy. Roxy used her fingers to get the right amount of product applied evenly and took a sponge over it to melt it perfectly into Shailene’s skin.

For the eyes, Roxy started by applying tarte’s clean slate™ 360º creaseless 12-hr smoothing eye primer. She wanted to sculpt the eyes in a monochromatic manner to keep it simple while still bringing out the best in Shailene’s gorgeous eyes. Roxy started by applying tarte’s Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow in shimmering bronze along the edges of her top and bottom lash lines. She diffused it softly with tarte’s undercover lover™ bamboo concealer brush, which allowed her to blend it softly but keep the strength of the color intact. Roxy then applied some nude-taupe shadows in the outer corners of Shailene’s eyes from tarte’s rainforest after dark limited-edition colored clay eye & cheek palette.

On Shailene’s eyebrows Roxy used tarte’s colored clay tinted brow gel in medium brown to give them a little more structure than usual and keep them in place. “This brow gel is awesome because the brush is so tiny it makes detailing the brows naturally very easy,” said Roxy.

“Shailene loves to apply her own mascara and swiped on 2 coats of tarte’s gifted™ Amazonian clay smart mascara to finish the look to her eyes,” said Roxy. “This mascara added a bit more drama to her eyes by lengthening and curling her lashes perfectly.”

On her lips Shailene applied tarte LipSurgence™ matte lip tint in hope straight from the pen. “This muted down-plum rose color was a wonderful finish to Shailene’s monochromatic look because it fit with in the color family of her eye shadow and cheeks, but added a bit of feminine softness to her over all look.”
