Golden Globe Beauty - Kate Winslet

Lancôme ambassadress Kate Winslet’s look from the Golden Globes was created by Avon Global Creative Color Director Jillian Dempsey.

“Kate Winslet’s look was shimmering, soft and sophisticated,” said Jillian Dempsey.

Jillian used taupe and champagne shades on Kate’s eyes and lots of rich mascara for extra definition.  A pop of rose blush on her cheeks gave Kate a youthful, natural-looking flush.  Jillian topped it off with a creamy rose lip color for a fresh finish.

Looks from the Emmy Awards

NARS Cosmetics worked with celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow to create the makeup looks for Keri Russell and Joan Allen at the 2010 Emmy Awards. NARS’ NEW Pure Matte Lipstick was key in creating the look as well as many products from the Fall 2010 Collection.

Keri Russell wore the following products to achieve a soft, vintage look:

· PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base and Skin Smoothing Face Prep

· Tzarine Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Fall 2010)

· Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo

· Douceur Blush (NEW for Fall 2010) topped with Desire Blush for a pop of color

· Tashkent Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Fall 2010)


NARS Cosmetics worked with celebrity makeup artist Melanie Inglessis to create the makeup look for Lea Michele at the 2010 Emmy Awards. Many products from NARS’ new Fall Collection were key creating the look.

Lea Michele wore the following products to achieve a playful yet classic look:

· PRO-PRIME Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base & Skin Smoothing Face Prep

· Douceur Blush (NEW for Fall 2010)

· Tzarine Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Fall 2010)

· Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (NEW for Fall 2010)

· Tashkent Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Fall 2010)


Christina Hendricks, Supporting Actress nominee for her role in "Mad Men," wore Lancome, along with her Zac Posen gown, to the Emmy Awards - Celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali gives us the details:


Vanessa prepped the skin with Lancôme’s La Base Pro. To perfect Christina’s already luminous skin, Vanessa used Lancôme’s new Teint Miracle Lit-From-Within Makeup. “It has an amazing transparent quality that leaves the skin looking flawless and luminous without being shiny,” said Vanessa. “I applied it with a brush and then blended with my fingers.” Blending with her fingers heated up the foundation a bit, allowing for a seamless finish. Vanessa followed with Effacernes Concealer under the eyes, her “all time favorite concealer.”


For a fresh pop of color I used Lancôme’s Blush Subtil Shimmer in Pink Pool on the apples of her cheeks. Dabs of Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Fluid Sheer #2 highlighted Christina’s cheekbones.


The eye shadow was mix of YSL’s Ombre Solo Eyeshadow in Cashmere Brown and Midnight Black. “I applied these all over her lid, under the bottom lashes and blended it out past her natural lash line to softly elongate the eye,” reported Vanessa.

Eye Liner:

To define and elongate the lash line, Vanessa lined the eyes with Lancôme’s Le Crayon Khôl in Black. “I used a touch of liner under her bottom lashes but smudged it for a softer look,” said Vanessa. For added depth, Vanessa used Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir at the very base of Christina’s lashes.


Several generous coats of Lancôme Définicils Waterproof Mascara in Black were used on the top and bottom lashes.


Christina’s lips were a mix of Lancôme lip colors for an effect that Vanessa described as “red with a little dash of pink.” A sheer coat of Color Design Matte Lipstick in Corset was topped by La Laque Fever Lipshine in Cyber Coral.

Lancome French Coquettes

Stunning! Lancome's Fall 2010 color collection is here...
French Coquettes, captures the spirit of the modern woman at the start of the 20th century. Dreamed up by artistic director Aaron De Mey, the collection harks to signature hallmarks of French glamour. From the opulence of the Belle Époque to the bohemian decadence of Montmartre, the collection’s palette of deep plums, shimmering charcoals and sophisticated nudes are sure to inspire.

Lancôme spokesmodels Daria Werbowy and Elettra Wiedemann make their first joint appearance in the ad campaign, shot by Mario Testino.

The collection’s star products include La Rose Deco, a multi-color powder compact for subtle radiance, Ombre Magnétique, a gel-like shimmery eye shadow that can go on lightly for a touch of shimmer or heavier for full-on drama and Le Vernis Nail Trio “Kissed By Paris,” a set of three mini polishes.

Lancome Friends & Family Sale

Lancome Friends & Family sale, going on Friday June 18th - June 25th 2010. Only at Lancome Boutiques...present this invitation and get 20% off!

Lancôme L'Absolu Crème De Brillance

Lancome made my day with L'Absolu Creme De Brillance. It's a cross between a gloss and a balm, goes on smooth and is super hydrating. The secret ingredients are:
*Shine boosting oils and light diffusing pearls that provides a rich color
*Pro-Xylane boosts hydration within the skin
*Glycerin and hyaluronic acid hydrate lips by pulling water from the environment and help it stay put

I was fortunate to try this in Blush Classique. The color is super rich and makes my lips look fuller. The sponge applicator is my favorite, you don't have to worry about individual bristles separating and becoming messy.

Looking for your next gloss splurge? I would put this one in the hat.

Makeup from Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland comes out this Friday, and I have a feeling it will be every makeup artist's dream come true. Lancôme ambassador Anne Hathaway portrays the White Queen, a role she was perfect for given her porcelain complexion. Her gorgeous skin was the focal point of her look at the London premiere of the film last week (as you can see in the picture). Makeup artist Kate Lee did the honors and also focused on Anne’s radiant eyes and smile. The dress, in case you’re wondering, is by Vivienne Westwood.

If you want to let your readers know how to get Anne’s premiere look, here are the products we suggest:

EYES: Le Stylo Waterproof Eyeliner in Prune; Color Design Eye Shadow in Ciel du Soir; Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black

SKIN: Photôgenic Lumessence foundation in Ivoire 2C; Blush Subtil in Sheer Amourose
LIPS: L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Rendez-Vous

Add a set of false eyelashes, and you’re ready for your date with the Mad Hatter.

Lancome Nutrix Royal Body Cream

Lancome Nutrix Royal Body, Intense Lipid Repair Body Cream, is not only ridiculously moisturizing, but it's smell is ultra comforting. This cool, creamy lotion is super hydrating and great for these colder months.

Nutrix Royal Body cream relieves the tightness in your skin that is caused by extreme dehydration. It uses Royal Lipideum, which is a unique technology enriched with Royal Jelly that supplements skin's own natural lipids for intense hydration.

The price point is at $34 for 7 oz. Yes, it's expensive, but if Lancome is offering a bonus gift with purchase, it would definitely be a good item to invest in. Plus, it's light pink container and gold top makes for nice counter decor.
