The holiday weekend is right around the corner, which means it’s time to think about your heat-proof makeup essentials. We all were just as curious about what to pack in our makeup bag, so Lancôme rang celebrity makeup artist Sandy Linter—also Lancôme’s Beauty At Every Age Expert—for her makeup must-haves.

Here’s the scoop: “The new Ageless Minérale Blush delivers the thinnest, sheerest amount of color to the skin. It’s a powder, so it looks great in the summer but it’s soft and sheer enough for all ages.”

Chantal Moore, MSN’s The Victory Project beauty expert

Born and raised in San Francisco, Chantal began working in the fashion industry at a young age.

Neutrogene Ultra Sheer Liquid

It’s been sunny in New York City recently and Spring is in the air everywhere. That means more time in the sun. I just discovered Neutrogena Ultra Sheer liquid daily sunblock to use under my makeup. The magic word here is liquid. It dispenses as a white cream that very easily turns into a spreadable liquid on the skin. No need to rub vigorously anymore and it doesn’t leave a white residue (sounds familiar?) You hardly feel it on your face it is so light. I applied it this morning after my serum and before my foundation.

Did you know that this sunblock is actually designed to leave a matte finish on your skin after you apply? Brilliant. The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer liquid daily sunblock comes in SPF 55 and SPF 70. BTW Neutrogena Ultra Sheer is small enough to fit in any makeup bag. No excuse not wearing sunscreen anymore. Finally a sunblock that is not working against us:)

Elizabeth Arden Spring/Summer 2010 Makeup Collection

Are you looking for a fresh, glamorous look to brush off those winter days? Elizabeth Arden‘s NEW Spring/Summer 2010 Makeup Collection might be for you. Here are the highlight of their latest additions:

Pure Finish Mineral Bronzing Powder: This new formula conditions skin with fresh-ground, micro-light minerals that give you a beautiful natural glow, perfect for any summer day. The compact also comes with a collapsible kabuki brush, a must-have for every makeup bag.

Lancôme Ôscillation Powerfoundation

Wondering what all the buzz is about? Ôscillation Powerfoundation ($48), Lancôme’s latest vibrating makeup, is truly a does-it-all foundation. Good-for-your skin ingredients, SPF 21 that’s among the highest on the market, a 14-hour wear and a finish that looks like your skin, but better—all housed in a package that’s portable and mess-free. As for that ingenious applicator that delivers 7,000 micro-oscillations per minute, the benefits as just as great. The subtle action helps spread the powder evenly across your skin and buffs it down to a matte finish.

Marta says: ” My new favorite foundation and it’s mineral too. I love the coverage, my skin looks immediately flawless and I don’t feel I wear foundation at all. I carry Lancôme Ôscillation Powerfoundation in my purse or makeup bag on the go at all times. Perfect also if you are the busy type who is looking for a great foundation that is very easy to use and quick to apply (no swirling your powder brush, taping, no mess)”

You can even buy an Ôscillation Powerfoundation Replacement Wand for $5.

Milly for Clinique Cosmetics Bag

I had the pleasure meeting Milly’s designer Michelle Smith at the Milly for Clinique Cosmetics Bag launch party at Bloomigdale’s 59th street in New York City. I was also lucky to see a fashion show presenting the fabulous Milly designs. I was in love with the clothes. The Milly collection was cut for the elegant woman yet a woman that is adventurist, likes to be outdoors, and enjoys life. Very Jackie O. Very feminine and pretty. When photographing with Michelle we both looked at each other and said at the same time. Michelle to Marta: I love your T Shirt. Marta to Michelle: And I love your dress. Getting a compliment from a fashion designer feels amazing.  

L to R: Milly designer Michelle Smith and Marta Walsh

The spring Milly for Clinique cosmetic bag is Michelle Smith’s second Clinique creation and is sophisticated, glamorous and completely colourful. “Colour plays center stage in my collections,” says Michelle. “The bright, fun print of the new Milly for Clinique bag makes me excited for spring.”

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with fashion and style begin?
Erin Kaplan: Honestly, it wasn’t until I started working at ELLE that I really became interested in fashion. I grew up with three brothers so there definitely wasn’t a lot of fashion-talk around the house. However, I have always been interested (obsessed really) with magazines and publishing…
