Vichy Normaderm Pro Mat Ultra-Mattifying Oil-Free Lotion SPF15 ($21) is what I like to use before I put on my makeup and step outside the Arizona sun. Best feature about this face cream is that it’s not greasy thanks to its Dry Finish” Technology: a shine-control formula. It is very hydrating, and protects me from the sun. The cream itself smells very clean which is always a plus.
Needless to say, Vichy Normaderm Pro Mat SPF 15 Sunscreen is in Marta’s makeup bag now:)

Amy’s Inspiration: “It’s a sensational, wearable summer style that delivers a polished, unfussy look that’s still Hollywood glamorous. I call it Marilyn Monroe at the beach.”

Prep: Since the entire show was outside this year I choose a lightweight moisturizer with SPF protection. I prepped Hayden’s skin for makeup with the NEUTROGENA Healthy Defense SPF 45 Daily Moisturizer.
I’ve been trying to interview Lisa Price the fabulous founder of Carol’s Daughter for quite some time now. And, finally, here it is!
I’m so excited to share with you Lisa’s story of an incredible journey creating a sought after skincare and fragrance line: Carol’s Daughter.
In this interview Lisa Price talks to me about her fascination with fragrance. The Carol’s Daughter Philosophy. Why did she choose Jada Pinkett Smith and Mary J. Blige as the faces for her brand, and what’s new with Carol’s Daughter.
Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with skincare begin?
Lisa Price: It wasn’t so much a love for skincare as it was a love for fragrance which began when I was a little girl. I started creating my own scents and creams because I loved to experiment—it’s always been a hobby and passion of mine.
MW: At what point did your love for making your own skincare products in the kitchen turn into a promising business?
LP: After some time of working as a writing assistant for The Cosby Show, and creating personalized scents and products for the cast, my mom encouraged me to make a small batch to sell at a local church flea market. I nearly sold out on the first day!
MW: What is Carol’s Daughter philosophy?
LP: Every Carol’s Daughter product I create is made with love, and inspired by my own life. Each product is truly unique and created especially for my customers, who are part of the Carol’s Daughter family. The idea is not just about looking good, but feeling good inside and out, comforting your body and spirit. Carol’s Daughter is also about having a strong sense of family as well as love and respect for yourself and others.

Hot weather, salt water, humidity and chlorine take their toll on our skin during the summer months. Here’s some of my summer skin care tips and solutions for keeping your skin safe and beautiful all summer long.
1. Wearing sunscreen everyday will significantly cut back on accumulative sun damage:
Recent information from the UCLA skin research department indicates that 78% of all the sun damage incurred in a lifetime is from incidental exposure! You may say “I’m not out at all during the day” but just walking to your car, and even driving in your car will expose you to unnecessary sun damage. Windshields do nothing to protect you from UV rays! Wear a moisturizer that contains a sun block with a minimum of SPF #15. Apply it in the morning so you’ll be covered all day! Try Renée Rouleau Daily Protection SPF #30…
Stars prove that you don’t have to be at Nikki Beach to flaunt a St. Tropez tan. Natasha Bedingfield and Kim Kardashian have both revealed how they remain fashionably tanned all year round. Thanks to St. Tropez Tan, Natasha and Kim are able to sport their healthy glows and beautifully sunkissed looks wherever and whenever they want! St. Tropez remains to be the world’s expert on safe and sunless tans, which leaves skin looking bronzed without any exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.
Since its introduction in 1996, St. Tropez has become the market leader in self tanning – a brand now synonymous with odorless self tan treatments attracting press acclaim and celebrity endorsement. Natasha Bedingfield loves St. Tropez so much that she included a St. Tropez custom spray tan as part of her recent pre-wedding beauty regimen.
Natasha says, “St. Tropez is the best self tanning product I have ever used. With my ‘English Rose’ complexion, it’s easy to sun damage, but let’s face it – everybody looks better with a little kiss from the sun! St. Tropez is a way that I can get that natural glow without aging or tan lines. It’s easy and quick. I love it!”

Lancôme national makeup artist Tarek Abbas is Arlenis Sosa’s go-to makeup artist so it’s no surprise that he created the look for Arlenis on Monday evening.

To create a polished complexion, Tarek applied Arlenis Sosa’s and then added a touch of color to her cheeks using Color Design Cream Blush in Chic Cassis. To define her eyes, he used Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony on the lower lash line and applied Artliner in Noir to the upper lash line starting at the outer corner. Tarek wanted to give Arlenis a soft, shiny pout so he lined her lips with Le Lipstique in Sheer Chocolate, applied Le Rouge Absolu in Bordeaux and finished with a touch of Juicy Tubes in Dreamsicle.
Celebrity makeup artist Dara Klein created the look for actress Lake Bell.
