Leave it to CHANEL to launch two truly innovative new formulas just in time for spring: moisture-rich CHANEL ROUGE COCO STYLO Complete Care Lipshine and durable LE VERNIS Longwear Nail Colour. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on the newest collections and get to work in our photo studio having fun experimenting with the new shades and formulas.

We rounded up a small crew at Studio N. Our first reaction? Loving the variety of perfectly edited colors that run the gamut from classic glamour to freshly modern. We incorporated a few different inspirations throughout the shoot, which give you a tiny glimpse of the countless looks anyone can create with these superior hues. From day to night, see all our looks and more ways that CHANEL has you covered for spring and beyond with these two covetable collections.

We love a great blowout, which is why we’re so excited to have all the hair care and styling products from Drybar available at Nordstrom. Now we can all snatch up the genius line created by founder Alli Webb for blowing out some gorgeous locks right at home. Webb gave us some of her time to tell us about starting her company, her top five Drybar favorites and how to get the perfect results at home.

alli-webb-interview

Hi Alli! Tell us a little about your background. What was the idea behind Drybar, and how did it get started?
While growing up, I always struggled with my naturally frizzy, curly hair, and longed for a place that would happily blowout my hair at a price I could afford. I ended up becoming a professional stylist in my early 20s. In 2009, after being a stay-at-home mom, I started a mobile blow drying business, Straight at Home. During that time, it occurred to me that I was not alone in my quest—there was a huge hole in the market for a place to get great blowouts, in a fun, beautiful environment at an affordable price. I realized I needed to do this. So I partnered with my brother, Michael Landau, and my husband, Cameron Webb, to open our first location in Brentwood, California. We never dreamed it would turn into what it has. ‎

We love the positive, inclusive vibes of your company’s 10 core values and beliefs. What philosophy guided you in picking them, and if you had to sum them up into just one sentence, what would it be?
Life is too short to work someplace you don’t believe in, and where you can’t be yourself. Our parents ingrained that in us, and we’ve always thought of Drybar as an extension of our family! Drybar’s success is due to the hard work and dedication of us all coming together for one overarching goal: to make women feel great.

Your products and services are all named after cocktails and adult beverages (Dirty Martini, The Cosmo, Southern Comfort, etc). What inspired the theme?
While we were developing the whole bar concept, naming hairstyles after drinks seemed like such a fun way to order your favorite style off the “bar menu”. Our clients really love it!

Speaking of cocktails, what’s your all-time favorite?
I am most definitely a Mai Tai girl.

drybar-how-to-home-blow-out-picks

What are your top five picks from the Drybar line right now, and why do you love them?
1. 3-Day Bender Curling Iron: I love this curling iron because it gives a seriously perfect wave! It uses NanoIonic technology to smooth the cuticle, setting curls in place—all while helping with frizz control.

2. Bay Breeze Hydrating Shots: Like many of our Drybar ladies, I love getting lots of blowouts and being blonde, which means a lot of heat styling and coloring. So having a weekly hair shot is an absolute must for me.

3. 100 Proof Treatment Oil: It’s a go-to product for me because it adds so much shine, plus it replenishes dry, damaged strands and also helps control frizz and flyaways.

4. Triple Sec Texturizer: Triple Sec gives amazing texture! It’s super popular in our shops with our stylists and clients because it adds tons of volume and texture, and the scent leaves my hair feeling super fresh and clean.

5. Detox Dry Shampoo: This is one of our bestsellers and for good reason. There’s no better way to make a blowout last than a great dry shampoo with a heavenly scent!

So tons of guys may not start getting blowouts anytime soon, but they’re definitely starting to care more about their hair and embrace longer lengths. General thoughts on: #manbun #manbraid?
I love a good man bun…and have seen a lot of men sporting braids lately. I’m into it.

In all your experience as a pro stylist and founder of Drybar, what advice do you find yourself always giving?
One piece of advice I like to give is to not let perfect stand in the way of progress. I am a stickler for things being just so, but I’ve learned sometimes you just have to take a leap and perfect the little details later.

Last question! Can you tell us any secrets to the perfect at-home blowout?
Take your time! Most people rush through their blowouts, but it only takes a little time and effort to get pretty hair. If you put the time in, the blowout can really last, saving you more time in days to come.

M·A·C Senior Artist Cynthia Rivas introduces the new A Novel Romance Collection with a how-to guide for re-creating three different sultry looks, inspired by the tongue-in-cheek campaign imagery.

All three looks are focused around subtle pops of color against beautiful and natural looking skin, so begin each look by applying your favorite foundation and perfecting the skin. I recommend a lightweight, natural foundation, like M·A·C Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation, set with Mineralize Skinfinish Natural to give skin a romantic glow.

If you need more coverage, you can conceal any imperfections with (my secret weapon) Pro Longwear Concealer.

Once your skin is perfected, you can then focus on the rest of the look.

Seduction of a Scot

Hero

A look to make the eyes pop—for someone who isn’t afraid of color.

1. Start by applying Fluidline Eye Pencil in ‘Deep Blue Sea’ all over the lid, from lash line to crease. Blend the edges with a soft fluffy brush like the 217 Blending Brush.

2. Blend Electric Cool Eye Shadow in ‘Switch to Blue’ over the lid, then soften the edges again with the brush.

3. Apply a healthy coat of black mascara. Finish by lining the waterline with Eye Kohl in ‘Fascinating’ to make eyes appear larger.

4. Apply Powder Blush in ‘Animal Instincts’ to the apples of the cheeks.

5. Define your lip shape with Lip Pencil in ‘Hip ‘N’ Happy ‘ and gloss them up with Lipglass in ‘Reckless Desire’ for the perfect kissable lips.

Scandal on the High Seas

A focus on the eyes using neutral tones.

1. Smooth on Pro Longwear Paint Pot in ‘Indianwood’ from lash line to crease.

2. Start with the ‘My Fantasy’ color from the ‘A Novel Romance’ Eyeshadow Palette all over your eyelids. Contour your eyes with Eyeshadow in ‘Wedge’. Line the top lash line with Fluidline Pencil in ‘Earth Sign’ to help create a fuller lash line.

3. Finish by curling lashes and applying Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash on both the top and bottom lashes.

4. Give cheeks a perfect blushing tone with Powder Blush in ‘Fun Ending’.

5. Define lips with Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in ‘Etcetera’, followed by Lipstick in ‘Myself’. Add a pouty effect by dabbing a small amount of Lipglass in ‘Pure Fiction’ to the center of the lips.

Ethereal Escape

A soft, romantic look for every day.

1. Apply Cream Color Base in ‘Pearl’ to eyelids, and also to cheekbones for highlighting.

2. Press Electric Cool Eye Shadow in ‘Love Power’ all over eyelids and blend Eyeshadow in ‘Wedge’ into the contour/crease of eye, creating a softened look.

3. Curl lashes and apply Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash to both top and bottom lashes.

4. Apply Powder Blush in ‘Fun Ending’ to cheeks, smiling while you do so to get the cheekbones at that angle. For lips, create a kissable, stained lip look by mixing Lipstick shades ‘Myself’ and ‘Good Kisser’, and press onto lips with fingers.

Christian Louboutin’s recently launched nail color collection is coming to Nordstrom! To kick things off, Rouge Louboutin’ Nail Colour is now available and ready for the statement-making.

Louboutin took this classic red shade straight from the signature, red-lacquered soles of his shoes and bottled it up. In fact, it’s come full circle: The idea to add that flash of red to his soles came to Louboutin after watching his assistant paint her nails in the studio.

A red for any skin tone, this gorgeous polish comes in a specially designed bottle inspired by Louboutin’s highest heel, the Ballerina Ultima. That towering cap—topping off at a combined 8 inches high and fashioned after a calligraphy pen—makes the painting application feel like an artistic experience, with a patented brush specially designed to pick up the perfect amount of polish without any air bubbles. The formula is designed to be steel-strong and long-wearing, with pigment that delivers the depth of 20 layers of traditional lacquer in just two coats.

Starting in September, we’ll begin offering all 30 additional exquisite colors to choose from. (Yes, please!)

Charlotte-Tilbury-Beauty-Exclusive-set-nordstrom

After 20 years of helping top-notch models and actresses to look their most beautiful, British beauty and makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury decided it was time to channel all of her expertise into her own line. Since its launch, Charlotte’s incredible lineup has been taking the UK by storm, and starting this September, it will be available right here at Nordstrom. So excited! Luckily, none of us have to wait until fall to try one of her amazing products, because we’re offering the Charlotte Tilbury ‘Filmstar Killer Cheekbones’ Set right now as a limited-time Beauty Exclusive during our Anniversary Sale.

Packaged in a compact that’s inspired by the elegance and glamour of the 1920s, these genius powders allow you to sculpt your face just like the stars in Tinseltown. Apply the shading color where you want to sculpt (the hollows of your cheeks, temples, jawline and the sides and tip of your nose), then apply the highlighter on top of the cheekbones and down the center of the nose, cupid’s bow and brow bone. Just blend, and bam—you’re ready for the red carpet!

We can’t wait to bring on even more from Tilbury. Stay tuned for official dates and more highly coveted beauty products from this much-adored Brit makeup maven.
