“There are no unattractive women, just some that don’t know the power of makeup,” says Charlotte Tilbury, the go-to makeup artist to A-list celebs that include Gwyneth PaltrowJennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz, Rihanna and Kate Moss. Tilbury is a big believer in the power of makeup and how it can boost your confidence to help you achieve your goals — something she discovered herself at the age of 13, after a tube of mascara showed her the way.

Feeling frustrated herself by so much choice and too little direction at the makeup counter, she set out to create transformative products and take the guesswork out of “making up” by creating 10 signature looks (from “The Rock Chick” to “The Golden Goddess” to “The Sophisticate”), inspired by past beauty icons and their modern day counterparts. All of the products in Charlotte Tilbury’s eponymous collection of skincare and makeup treat and transform your look. Available online, you can purchase a complete look or buy any of the products individually.

Here are our fave three best products and looks.

  • Magic Cream Final Version

    Charlotte’s Magic Cream Treat & Transform Moisturizer ($95) is the perfect prep pre-makeup. It floods the skin with moisture to reduce the look of wrinkles and makes your complexion glow. It's rich formula is also packed with rose-hip oil, frangipani, hyaluronic acid, wild pansy, and transformative vitamins A, C, and E.

  • wonderglow test

    Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash ($52) -- (aka "Gisele in a jar") -- is a cross between an anti-ager and a light diffuser, You'll look lit from within. Collagen boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients are fused with light-reflecting microspheres to fill in wrinkles and scatter light so that even dull, dry, sleep-deprived skin looks luminous. Try Wonderglow alone or mixed in with foundation for a relaxed, effortlessly dewy look.

  • mascara test

    Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara in Glossy Black ($29) leaves no lash behind thanks to a laser carved, 5-groove brush. The formula also adds curl, volume separation, and length so that you can easily cheat that false lash effect. Tilbury recommends you "always curl lashes before using mascara. It’s like a push up bra for the eyes! And, layer mascara for full effect! Use at least three coats and lift from the root to elongate and thicken."

  • rock test

    This smoky eye and nude lip ensemble will have you exude the looks of Brigitte Bardot, Debbie Harry, and Kate Moss. Wear this sexy look as you hop from gigs to all-night parties.

  • Goddess test

    Live your life like it's golden by using nudes, bronze, and rose-colored makeup to transform lackluster skin to this kissed-by-the-sun, beachy look.

  • Sophisticate Final

    Inspired by beauty icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman, your look comes off as effortlessly classy, by using chocolate, taupe, and tan tones.

ZO Skin Health, Inc., under the direction of Super Derm Zein Obagi, M.D., is on a mission to stamp out pigmentation and in the process, give you the clearest, most even toned complexion.  The two new ZO Medical products recently launched are just the ticket.
ZO Medical C-Bright 10% Vitamin C Serum and ZO Medical Brightalive Non-Retinol Skin Brightener deliver a one-two punch to restore radiance. Brightalive is a new approach to skin pigment management using alpha-arbutin and bio-engineered phytotechnology to inhibit melanin production. Paired with vitamin C and an advanced exfoliating enzyme, it helps to reverse uneven tone and encourage epidermal renewal for a smoother texture. Peptides combined with hexylresorcinol, soy and licorice root also help control melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigment development.

According to Baltimore, MD plastic surgeon Dean Kane, “Suitable for all skin types, ZO Medical Brightalive is ideal when strong bleaching is not required. Using a non-retinol skin brightener,  it is less irritating and reduces the appearance of brown spots, evens skin tone and prevents new pigmentation. The exclusive 12-hour time-release antioxidant complex combines vitamins A, C and E to provide continuous protection against oxidative stress, replenish the skin’s moisture balance and encourage the natural DNA repair process.”

ZO Medical C-Bright 10% Vitamin C Serum is a potent dose of pure stabilized vitamin C that brightens and retexturizes the skin. It rapidly exfoliates the skin’s surface and works beneath the surface of the skin to prevent new pigment from forming. Powerful antioxidants help defend against environmental triggers that can initiate inflammation.

EVERYTHING’S COMING UP ROSIE

Posted by 08.20.14

Hanging out with mompreneur Rosie Pope, the star of Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels and maternity and baby clothing designer, is like talking to any other mom on the playground. You trade tricks, share complaints… and almost forget this particular mom is building quite the impressive empire which also includes her Mommy IQ book and MomPrep parenting classes.

Pope recently hosted a media event to unveil her Fall collection for expectant moms and their tots.

Her current line of baby clothes mirrors the best in her personality. The prints are warm and sweet, yet functional and pragmatic in their design. Rompers have removable feet to extend the life of outfits for fast-growing babies. The use of warm, muted greys as the new gender-neutral color is a welcome change from the tired yellows. Sweat material provides comfort and durability for active little ones. Overall, this line offers well-styled yet comfy options for babies and toddlers. The maternity line is also what you would expect from Pope — chic, shi shi and yet uber comfy.

The collection will be available in Rosie’s stores and on her website.
