JINsoon Show Recap: Derek Lam Spring Summer 2017

Derek Lam’s Spring 2017 collection pulled inspiration from artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s untroublesome, lucid, style of dressing. Jin Soon Choi was moved by the clean, quiet vibe when choosing Nostalgia to complement the collection. The pink beige shade is elegant yet glamourous and elongates the shape of the hands.

INSPIRATION: “Sarah’s Monique Lhuillier ensemble had quite a few colors going on so it was really important to make sure that her makeup didn’t compete. That being said, we really wanted to make it special with details that would complement the outfit.  It was a moment of “less is more” and we decided on a special gold liner detail on the eye with eye gloss to keep everything dewy and fresh.”

Kiehl’s Breakout Control Targeted Acne Spot Treatment & Facial Lotion

Adult acne is a growing concern that affects all ages, genders and ethnicities (40 million people!).  Kiehl’s introduces a fast-acting, gentle formula clinically demonstrated to reduce the appearance of breakouts and blemishes in as little as 24 HOURS. Via: Kiehl’s.

TM’s take: These products don’t have a scent/fragrance, which is a great plus. The face lotion glides on skin very smoothly and acts as a good primer for a makeup foundation.  I don’t use it everyday as my main face lotion but on those occasions that I need extra TLC and have minor breakouts.

Maybelline New York Rebecca Minkoff SS17 Makeup

Yesterday, Gato for Maybelline New York and Amanda Steele created a look for the woman who encapsulates these three words – optimistic, independent and fearless – for Rebecca Minkoff’s Fall 2016 “Runway to Retail” collection.

For the show, fashion and beauty influencer, Amanda Steele, teams up with Maybelline New York makeup artist, Gato, to create a look that is all about a girl who wakes up, does her somewhat “messy” makeup, and heads out the door. Steele notes that it “matches the spirit Minkoff wants to give off; the dramatic eye isn’t about perfection, it’s about the every day girl on the go.” Gato echoes that sentiment, saying that this almost haphazard eye really incorporates the “gypsy spirit behind the collection.”
