Jason Wu and Lancôme join forces to translate the New York-based designer’s fall/winter 2013 runway collection into a limited-edition makeup collaboration. A Nordstrom exclusive, Wu’s collection for Lancôme draws inspiration from his brand’s feminine aesthetic and bold color palette. Each product features his signature grey packaging for a statement-making touch.

“Beauty has always been extremely important to my design process, and I’ve made it an integral part of my fashion shows over the years. I think it was an organic progression that further delves into the Jason Wu lifestyle and that also showcases my love for colors,” says Wu.

Go from runway to reality with ease with our hand-selected product guide on how to wow them the Wu way.

Beauty on the Scene

Sometimes, the most everyday objects can inspire your beauty routine. We asked three Beauty Stylists to take note of the colors and textures they see daily and to then pick a product on their radar that celebrates the beauty around them.

HERO

Freshly Polished: Lancôme ‘Vernis in Love – Aquatic Summer’ Fade Resistant Gloss Shine Nail Polish

“I’m so in love with these new bold shades from Lancôme’s summer collection,” says Candace Duong, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom South Shore Plaza store in Braintree, Massachusetts. “You have to try Simply Aqua. It’s such a fresh hue, you’ll want to wear it with your favorite floral dress! And the best part about Lancôme’s nail polish is that one brush stroke will cover most of your nail bed, so one coat will do the trick.”

Need to Put Out a Fire? Kiehl’s Since 1851 ‘Skin Rescuer’ Stress-Minimizing Daily Hydrator

“Let’s start first by talking about the texture. This product melts over your skin, leaving a cooling sensation. Great for reducing visible signs of stress, fatigue, dehydration, blotchiness and redness,” says James Webb, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom Fashion Valley store in San Diego, California. “I like to use this product in the morning after I wash my face and before I use my serum. It doesn’t leave your skin greasy, and when I use the Skin Rescuer on my clients, their makeup gildes smoothly and keeps everything in place.”

Scents To Make Your House a Home: NEST Fragrances ‘Grapefruit’ Scented Candle and NEST Fragrances Diffuser

“The new NEST candles, fragrance and diffusers are AH-MAZING!! These home scents are moderately priced for such a beautiful product,” says Tannah Ives, Beauty Stylist at the Nordstrom Thousand Oaks store in Thousand Oaks, California. “Not only do all the scents smell wonderful—they are perfect as gifts and great for any home or office!”

Take notice of what’s new and fabulous in the world of beauty.

Currently reading T Magazine with Tina Turnbow’s scoop on Chloë Sevigny’s guest appearance tonight on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU”. What caught our attention? Sevigny started dishing on her beauty go-tos! We couldn’t help but share her secrets for creating that signature, naturally flawless look—not to mention her newest favorite mascara.

Image of Sevigny: Tina Turnbow

From T Magazine:
What products do you use on [your hair]?
I use Oribe shampoo and conditioner, in that sleek black packaging. I’ve always been into Kiehl’s Formula 133. Lately I’ve also been liking Kérastase Mousse Volumactive.

When you do your makeup, what are your go-to cosmetics?
I use NARS concealer, because it’s soft and blendable. I prefer to use a color that is warmer in tone, because I don’t like when it looks too light around the eyes. I like YSL Touche Éclat because it brightens in a way that is not obvious or heavy. I also prefer products that are more matte, not shimmery or glittery. My favorite blush is by M•A•C. It’s a deep pink, but I use it so much the name has worn off! I like the NARS bronzing stick, in Cap Vert. M•A•C Mineralize powder is the best. And for my lips, sometimes I go with Lady Danger by M•A•C, an orangey red. First I apply their Prep and Prime Lip, to help the color stay in place and last longer.

Any tips on how to get lashes as long and lush as yours?
I’m definitely a lash girl. I feel they are my best feature. I have tried lots of mascaras. I was drawn to Lancôme Doll Lashes recently. Not only because of the name, but it smells like roses!
