BEAUTY ESSENTIALS: WHAT TO PACK FOR A MUSIC FESTIVAL
At our spring 2016 beauty photo shoot, we couldn’t get enough of pastels. Why? Our makeup artist extraordinaire, Kali Kennedy put it best: “‘Fresh’ is the first word that pops into my mind when I think about spring beauty. Something that’s exciting and new and trend-driven that you really just knock out of the park with all of the energy you’ve been keeping inside through the fall and winter.” And right now, nothing is saying fresh and full of energy to us more than subtle-but-punchy pastels.
Nails are the easiest place to experiment with trends and colors. With countless shades out there, we love the look of one on every finger, so go get crazy all you want. The best part of all: these looks are totally doable at home–no special tricks, tools or mani appointment required. Just a few good old fashion pretty pots of nail color.

With spring finally here, it’s time to start perfecting that sunny-weather makeup and strobing technique.

Charlotte Tilbury and team are lending us a few tips and easy steps to help you bring your natural beauty to light with products designed to do all the work for you.

As the executive director of education at La Mer, it’s Clyde Johnson’s job (and passion) to know everything there is to know about what’s best for your skin and how to achieve the results you’re looking for. We spent some time chatting (we really could have gone on all day) with Johnson about everything from rebooting your beauty regimen for the best possible outcomes to the science behind making the trademarked Miracle Broth, which goes into all La Mer products, so incredible and effective. Hint: the sound of rare kelp undergoing metamorphosis is vital to the process.
