BEAUTY UPDATE

The eye and lip products you need for fall


SEPTEMBER 2013

Editorial & Contents All You Need For Fall Call me a romantic, but I love the sights and smells of autumn—green leaves turning red and gold, whiffs of pumpkin spice latte and hot apple cider, and knee-high boots and tailored trench coats roaming the streets. With New York Fashion Week just behind us, we are constantly inspired to look our very best. For this issue, we compiled a guide to the most covetable accessories of the season, as well as tips on how to master the "menswear-inspired" fashion trend, complete with wardrobe suggestions. On the beauty front, we are excited to update our look with bolder hues, thus rounding up all the products you'll need to master the bronze smokey eye and the deep plum lip. In this month's "Dear Editor" column, we tackled the transition into fall beauty. We also interviewed Lubov Azria to get the scoop on the newly launched BCBG MAXAZRIA fragrance (available in your September box). Here's to the start of the best season of the year.

What to If spring florals and summer prints left you feeling a little too saccharine sweet, fall is your sartorial moment to shine. After all, if there is a theme to this fall's dressing, it would be androgynous chic. This season's stalwarts are loose silk blouses, tapered chinos and

fitted tux blazers. In other words, a departure from figure-hugging silhouettes to a more relaxed fit. To "girl" it up, pair your ensemble with fiery red lipstick and a seriously smokey eye; Cara Delevingne-esque eyebrows optional but highly recommended.

GLOSSY TIP:

The key to mastering the menswear trend is tailoring. Avoid oversized clothing since they are more likely to drown your frame. Opt for pieces that flatter your physique.

How do I update my skincare and makeup routine for fall/ winter?

Fall is my favorite season of the year! What are some fall beauty trends?

The fall/winter climate is characterized by dryness, which saps the moisture from our skins. That means it's time to stock up on heavier creams and skincare with moisturizing properties, such as hyaluronic acid. For makeup, switch to powder formulas and heavier ďŹ nish foundations.

From the runways, I personally loved seeing lots of cat eyes, from simple to full-on smokey. Red lips in varying textures, whether matte or intensely glossy, is always a win in my book. I also love the dark and mysterious fall nail polishes in hues of khaki greens and chocolate-y browns. Thicker brows (ala Cara Delevingne) is also in vogue this season, so make sure to put down your tweezers and opt for a brow pencil instead!

I chopped my hair off over the summer and now I'm trying to grow it out. Do you have any suggestions on how to speed along the process? Stave off going to the hair salon until you absolutely have to (like if you're on the verge of getting a mullet) and eat plenty of protein, which aids nail and hair growth. Good luck!

Left to Right: fresh Crème Ancienne $140, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 $38, Tom Ford Beauty Brow Sculptor in Taupe $42, Chantecaille Hydra Chic - Persimmon $34, Chanel Nail Colour in Mysterious $27

Glossy Tip: Compliment this trend by painting your nails in sophisticated shades of pepper reds, khaki olives and cocoa browns.

Put away the pretty pinks and soft corals, it's time for dark and bold lips to shine.

Power Pout LANCÔME Juicy Tubes Smoothie, $18 For those who prefer something a little more subdued, you can still add a pop of color on to lips with this tinted formula.

LUSH Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick in Confident, $19 This liquid lipstick can be worn sheer or layered to a dark, deep plum.

MAYBELLINE Baby Lips in Grape Vine, $4 Another alternative is this fun lip balm, which provides a light sheen of colors while moisturizing lips.

LAURA MERCIER Lip Plumper in Lychee, $30 This lip plumper instantly plumps and hydrates lips for a fuller, healthier pout.

KEVYN AUCOIN The Expert Lip Color Blood Roses, $35 We've been waiting all summer to transition back to strong lip colors—this rich merlot shade is on the top of our list.

HOURGLASS N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil, $42 Containing 14 essential oils, this highly advanced lip treatment oil is the crème de la crème of lip balms. Use it at night for smooth lips by day.

WITH LUBOV AZRIA,

Corporate Creative Officer, BCBGMAXAZRIA How did the concept for the BCBGMAXAZRIA bon genre fragrance come about? We partnered with Elizabeth Arden to create the new bon genre fragrance, a seductive scent with an alluring air of mystery and a kick of attitude for today's confident, sophisticated woman. What kind of woman do you think will find the bon genre fragrance most appealing? BCBGMAXAZRIA bon genre is the perfect effortlessly cool accessory for the woman who is looking to mix femininity with edgy style and vibrant fashion energy. Describe the packaging. The packaging for bon genre is an evolution of our signature bottle in the shape of hourglass curves with our iconic butterfly logo transforming into a blossoming flower on the cap — this time, in an opulent purple hue to accent the mysterious nature of the fragrance. -16-

I FOUND INSPIRATION BY EXPLORING LESS CONVENTIONAL VISIONS OF BEAUTY

young ingénues, indie rock, street art, social media – and wanted to capture the energy, intrigue and understated beauty of underground culture. How would you define the BCBG woman? The BCBG woman is dynamic and sophisticated with a discriminating sense of style that ranges from relaxed casual to edgy rocker and classic to elegant. She is an original and unprecedented trendsetter, with inspirational expressions of fashion. Fragrance is important to her as she appreciates the importance of completing any ensemble with an alluring scent. What was it like to develop this fragrance? With this fragrance, I wanted to explore a side of the BCBGMAXZARIA woman that we hadn’t yet touched with the Fragrance Collection. I found inspiration by exploring less conventional visions of beauty - young ingénues, indie rock, street art, social media – and wanted to capture the

energy, intrigue and understated beauty of underground culture. Together with Marypierre Julien, I was able to create a perfect fragrance for every facet of our woman’s personality and style. How would you generally describe the BCBGMAXAZRIA Fragrance Collection? Are there commonalities between the fragrances? All of the fragrances in the BCBGMAXAZRIA Fragrance Collection are created with our dynamic BCBG woman in mind. Each explores a different facet of her personality and style, and is designed to enhance her mood and style through many different expressions of her own personality and personal style.

INSIDE GLOSSYBOX 5 Questions for...

Marcus Hartwall

WHAT GROOMING PRODUCT CAN’T YOU LIVE WITHOUT?

WHAT’S YOUR TYPICAL MORNING ROUTINE LIKE?

My Clarins for Men exfoliating cleanser.

It's the same very day. It's starts with a shower, then using the different products on my bathroom counter and before leaving to work I enjoy a double espresso, a grape fruit and some fantastic Swedish brown bread with delicious ham and cheese.

WHAT’S THE SECRET TO BEING A WELL-GROOMED MAN? Being passionate about how you look and ultimately how you present yourself to the world every day.

IF YOU COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD IT BE?

WHAT’S ON YOUR BATHROOM COUNTER? Hair wax from Kevin Murphy (NIGHT. RIDER), cleanser from Clarins, perfume from Bond no 9 (Hamptons) and a moisturiser from Comfort Zone (SKIN REGIMEN). Once every week I use Ole Henriksen's fantastic walnut complexion scrub.

1. SESHA RENU EXFOLIATING GEL Papaya enzyme is one of the most effective ingredients in exfoliating removing dead skin cells, and this product is chock full of it! Use 1-2 times per week for a smooth, polished skin surface. 2. BVLGARI POUR HOMME EAU DE TOILETTE The beginning of fall marks the transition to an entirely different olfactory mood—spicy and woody, with dominating notes of musk and amber. The men in the office have been particularly favoring this Bulgari scent, which we have to admit to stealing a few spritzes ourselves. 3. STIL A MAGNIFICENT METALS FOIL FINISH EYE SHADOW We were enamored by the gilded lids of the models at the Betsey Johnson show this New York Fashion Week. The secret to the foil-like appearance, according to makeup artist Sarah Lucero, was this magnificent formula. 4. KIEHL'S CREME DE CORPS It's imperative to start early on the moisturizing regime to ensure your skin stays in great shape throughout the colder months. Grab a large bottle of Kiehl's iconic moisturizer and apply liberally all over as soon as you get out of the shower. Your skin will thank you in a few months! 5. MIYU BEAUT Y HYRDATE MI BEAUT Y ESSENCE We love sleeping in, so any timesaving product would get a thumbs up in our book. The Miyu Beauty Essence is both a mist and hydrating serum housed in a handy spray bottle. One quick spritz and you're out of the door!
