laura mercier oil free supreme foundation

Another great foundation find this week laura mercier oil free supreme. The magic word is oil free because I can’t stand oily foundations they feel too heavy on the skin and look too shiny. This one has a matte finish. It’s silicone-free, fragrance free, and doesn’t rub off too quickly. Comes in 12 shades, mine is Honey Beige. $42. Available at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales and Sephora.

Hourglass IMMACULATE Liquid Powder Foundation

This Liquid Powder Foundation by Hourglass Cosmetics is brilliant! Matte powdery finish, oil free, fragrance free,water-resistant, synthetic dye-free, gluten free, and vegan.

Valentino Fashion Show Fall 2012 Paris

Backstage at Valentino Fall 2012 with Redken. “I’ve created a very classic Valentino look, very pretty. I’m doing a seventies kind of twist that has a very soft feel to it…


Valentino’s got such a signature girl now, every season I reinvent the hair whether it’s a twist, a braid, or a knot. It’s a challenge but what’s very nice about it is that it’s always very pretty, very soft, very feminine. It’s a great look for women.”–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant

Kérastase Fibre Architecte Hair Serum

Absolutely loving the Kérastase Fibre Architecte which is a dual serum that seals and repairs very damaged lengths and split ends (like mine, ha!).

Nina Ricci Fall 2012

Nina Ricci Fashion Show Fall 2012: “The texture is very natural with a deep side part. I then tucked hair behind one ear and then behind the opposite ear and let the hair hang forward…

…Adding powder refresh 01 dry shampoo made a dry texture for a matte look- it’s duller and natural, not shiny. The deep side part makes the look very cool- easy and pretty.”–Guido, Redken Creative Consultant
