Selling tanning or self tanning products to Marta is like selling ice to Eskimos. My skin is naturally olive and has that constant Mediterranean tan. So I’m not very motivated to self tan often. However, St. Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Body lotion ($18) manged to changed my mind.
What I love about it is that I get an instant sun kissed look with no commitment. I can wash it off any time. It’s not orange. It smells good. It’s not too dark. It’s just the right amount of sun glow. It’s easy to apply, although make sure to wash your hands after use, or even wear gloves when applying. The lotion is dark brown when first dispensed, once you spread all of the skin it turns into a sheer tan color or into that very desires sun kissed look. Remember, the St. Tropes Wash Off Instant Glow is not a self tanner, it’s a tinted body lotion.

New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2010: NARS Cosmetics created the makeup look at the Marc Jacobs AW2010 show.
INSPIRATION: “I was inspired by the film La Vie des Autres. I wanted the models to have a dirty look as if the hair and makeup had been slept in,” said designer Marc Jacobs, who specifically requested Barbarella lipstick to be used on the models’ lips.
LOOK: “This look is what you’d see on a girl from the East Village or St. Germain des Pres-an existentialist with a modern twist,” said NARS Cosmetics Founder and Creative Director François Nars whose application technique included using his fingers to achieve the faded effect. “These girls are sexy and cool. Their makeup looks dirty and worn out as if it has been on all night but still translates beautifully on the runway.”

GET THE LOOK: Award Winner Julianna Margulies Wears NARS Makeup at the 2010 Golden Globes!
The Look: “Julianna has such beautiful skin and a gorgeous beaming smile, that I wanted to keep the colors subdued and let her natural skintone shine through,” said Kristofer Buckle for NARS Cosmetics. “I didn’t want to use too much color because it might have taken away from her. I wanted it to be all about Julianna so I focused on highlighting her skin by encouraging shine and glow.”
Below is Kristofer’s makeup tutorial to recreate Julianna’s look:
· Using fingers apply Orgasm Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2010) down the center of the nose, across cheekbones, and on the apples of the cheeks
· Apply Firming Foundation all over face, mixing in with the Orgasm Illuminator
· Re-apply Orgasm Illuminator over the entire complexion to encourage shine [Kristofer’s tip: “I used the Flat Concealer Brush to apply the Orgasm Illuminator on top of the foundation creating high gleam.”]
