MOST SHARED TREND ON FACEBOOK? THE MAGIC OF MICROBLADING Let’s face it—any treatment that alludes to sharp edges might be a tad intimidating. But this relatively painless procedure (you’ll feel only a slight tingling) can make your eyebrows look way fuller and more defined. Unlike applying brow gel or tattooing, this process uses a special pen to deposit pigment into the outer layer of your skin for semipermanent and natural-looking results that last up to three years. It comes with a $700 to $800 price tag and a hefty time commitment (plan on two hours for the initial treatment, then 40 minutes for annual touch-ups), but never having to pencil in your brows again may be totally worth it.

EMMA ROBERTS AND ALICIA VIKANDER PROVE YOU CAN WEAR A CARDIGAN WITHOUT LOOKING FRUMPY

/

A recap of the story you totally clicked with on InStyle.com. Button-front sweaters aren’t just meant to hang on the back of your desk chair in case the oďŹƒce AC is cranking. Here’s proof: We chose the seven best celebrity cardigan looks. To keep things fresh, opt for a print— it gives the classic silhouette a youthful spin. Or go dressier with an embellished style that has details like sheer sleeves, and pair it with leather pants and heels. For a sophisticated look, aunt your sweater solo (all buttons fastened except the top one) with a classic pencil skirt in a neutral hue.

Chic drawings by illustrators like Anne Watkins accompany posts.

Last fall, at InStyle’s InStyle s inaugural InS InStyle Awards, held at the spectacular Getty Center tucked in the hills of L.A.’s Brentwood, Kate Hudson presented the Style Icon Award to her close friend Gwyneth Paltrow. “From the moment I laid eyes on this woman, it was love at first sight,” started Kate, who went on to introduce her pal with one of the night’s incredible highlights: a multipage speech that was funny, thoughtful, genuine, self-aware, and smartly written. Of course, this was before Kate published her winning book Pretty Happy—an instant best seller. When the night was done, I bounded over to not only thank her for her participation but also congratulate her on such a beautiful piece. We talked about her talent and affinity, and it was then that I asked her to consider writing an essay, topic TBD, to be showcased in her cover story this month. Kate said she’d think about it, but I could already see her leaning to a place of yes—her ever-twinkling eyes registered the possibility of taking the dare. We saw each other a couple of times in the months that followed, and we

22

talked more about the option to contribute to her feature. She agreed. Our gorgeous cover shoot took place, and a few days later Kate turned in her writing. I had expected the piece to exude the hallmark Kate Hudson values—humor, warmth, accessibility—but even I was surprised by just how brave, vulnerable, and downright real Kate was willing to get. In “Sometimes I Feel Like a Bad Mom” (p. 273), Kate presents “thoughts from a working single mother of two.” Thoughts that I know will not only resonate with many of our readers but also unburden those caregivers who wake up each morning determined to find a perfect balance that inevitably escapes us all—because there’s no such thing as perfection, and balance is more about perception and intention than it is reality. To Kate, who tells us, “I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude,” we say thank you for your very special Mother’s Day gift: an invitation to think frankly and speak openly about mothers, parents, expectations, and possibilities.

*ĂžB@?Ăš SWEET ESCAPE

My mom recently underwent heart surgery. Fortunately, all went well, but what a treat it was to come home and see the new redesigned March issue of InStyle sitting in my mailbox. I promptly poured myself a glass of wine, relaxed, and dreamed about all the spring fashion. It was the perfect respite from an emotionally fraught day. —REBECCA A. HOLDEN, Norfolk, Va. JUST MY TYPE

I’m a sucker for fonts (it’s where my eye immediately travels when I’m scanning the newsstand), and the typeface on the March cover is simply fantastic. It matches cover girl Shailene Woodley’s style and essence so well. I’m happy to see that it also lives on InStyle.com. —GINA CICATELLI CIAGNE, Washington, D.C.

BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO

“It’s none of our business what other people think about us,� said Shailene Woodley in our March cover story, “Shai Anything�. By the volume of positive mail we received, it turns out you really like her!

The March issue of InStyle is the best one yet. The redesign is beautiful, and I love all the new sections. It makes an already great magazine even better. I can’t wait to see what’s in store next month.

I always look forward to reading Eric Wilson’s column, but “Help! My Favorite Designer Dumped Meâ€? [March] really struck a chord. I can’t tell you how many times my heart has been torn apart by designers decamping from my favorite fashion houses. It’s far worse than anything I’ve ever endured with a signiďŹ cant other.

With seven InStyle cover shoots behind her, you might think Kate Hudson has seen—and worn—it all. Turns out, being invited to play dress-up with 10 trunks of spring couture still makes her a little giddy. “I don’t get to put on things like this, even for the red carpet,” said the actress, who declared a floral Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown with a sweeping train her favorite because of its drama factor. “The detail that goes into these pieces is pheno al.” henomena

“This is Downton Abbey chic,” said Hudson of this high-neck Schiaparelli Haute Couture confection she wore on set in the Pacific Palisades.

A PICTURE MIGHT SAY A THOUSAND WORDS, BUT ON THE RED CARPET, A TEAM OF IMAGE-MAKERS KNOWS THAT JUST THE RIGHT GOWN CAN SPEAK VOLUMES ABOUT A STAR’S CHARACTER AND STYLE

Alicia Vikander at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood for a fitting of her custom Louis Vuitton gown two days before the Academy Awards

licia Vikander had her Oscars gown picked out by October, nearly five months before the ceremony. In fact, she had not yet even been nominated for her role as artist Gerda Wegener in The Danish Girl when the decision was made. (It was widely presumed at the time, though, that she would be, so best not to leave things to the last minute. And, of course, she would go on to win the Academy Award for best supporting actress.) “When we were presented with the sketch, we knew instantly that this was the Oscars dress,” says Vikander’s stylist, Victoria Sekrier. “It represents so clearly Alicia’s balanced aesthetic between the contemporary and the timeless.” It should come as no surprise that the gown, a pale yellow strapless design that played with notions of both red-carpet tradition and youthful energy, was created by Louis Vuitton artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière, who has dressed Vikander in a series of critical hits throughout awards season. The slim, full-length multicolored metallic sequined dress she wore to the SAG Awards, for example, was at the top of many best-dressed lists, including my own. And while Vikander, during a breakthrough year in 2015 with her back-to-back hits Ex Machina and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., had been courted relentlessly by other fashion houses, she formalized her relationship with Vuitton and began appearing in its advertisements this past July. So, it was fairly obvious she would wear Vuitton to the Oscars, much like Jennifer Lawrence routinely wears Dior and Cate Blanchett frequently appears in Giorgio Armani. This is one of those designer and muse relationships that work so well because their respective branding is clearly aligned. Indeed, Vikander’s gown offers a compelling case study of just how serious an undertaking these dresses have become, today involving far more negotiation, planning, and execution than ever, all to capitalize on what is widely perceived to be the biggest, costliest, and sometimes riskiest marketing opportunity in fashion: the Oscars red carpet. Estimates of the publicity value of dressing an award winner have varied over the past 15 years, but they are easily worth hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars to designers. STATEMENT PIECE At the Oscar Nominees Luncheon in

February, it was Brie Larson who perhaps best described how consciously young actresses tell a narrative through their style. On selecting her Oscars dress, she said, “It’s about trying to reflect what my soul looks like.” Likewise, when Lupita Nyong’o emerged on the world stage with her 2014 performance in 12 Years a Slave, her stylist, Micaela Erlanger, articulated a clear strategy to use fashion to portray whimsy, glamour, and, most significantly, her versatility as an actress with an array of boldly colorful dresses and prints that climaxed with a red Ralph Lauren Collection gown and matching cape at the Golden Globes and a twirlworthy sky blue Prada dress and Fred Leighton diamond

Alicia Vikander and Nicolas Ghesquière have formed a close collaborative bond.

headband at the Oscars. The resulting images rivaled some of the most impactful red-carpet looks of all time. For Vikander and Ghesquière, what her Oscars dress would ultimately impart was considered from the very beginning. “I wanted to portray Old Hollywood but with a modern twist,” Vikander says. “Throughout the entire awards season, we were very meticulous about making sure each event was its own unique, special story.” For the Oscars, Vikander wanted a color she had not worn previously, and chose a soft shade of citron. Sekrier, a rising star in styling with a keen sense of the inner workings of fashion (she left her homeland of Russia at age 16 and was a model for many years), also sought out an unusual color that would complement Vikander’s skin tone but stand out as well. It was no accident that Vikander’s dress popped onscreen, even in the aerial shots taken from far above. Another important detail could be found in the shoes, which would be visible because of the intricate, cloudlike construction of a floating hem and shorter front. “Instead of matching the shoes to the dress, we matched them to the embroidery,” Vikander says. The silver strappy sandals, also by Louis Vuitton, featured a heel in the shape of a flower that is a symbol of the house, “a subtle, tongue-incheek touch of logo, and a nod to the brand,” Sekrier says. Ghesquière, too, notes the parallel between Vikander’s dress and her work: “This gown juxtaposes lightness and strength,” he says, “not unlike the character Alicia embodies so daringly well in The Danish Girl.” IMAGE CONTROL Creating such a defining moment does

not come easy. Vikander’s dress was a remarkable feat of engineering, with separate teams placing together the pieces of the complex pattern and hand-sewing its silver beading over several weeks. To the world, these details telegraph the importance not only of this dress but also of its wearer. That message wasn’t lost on Vikander either. “I think about the amount of time and effort put into the gown, and I feel special wearing it,” she says. “But most important, I feel like myself, and surprisingly quite comfortable—a way that I think the modern woman wants to feel.”

From start to finish, Alicia Vikander’s Oscars dress took five months, two teams of artisans including 20 embroiderers, and a painstaking plan to create. Here, Vikander and stylist Victoria Sekrier share the details. 2. FABRICS November 2015 Silk taffeta is chosen as the main fabric for its smooth yet pliable texture, which matches the spirit of the design. “We love the marriage of quintessential Hollywood in the bustier bodice and full skirt and a more modern approach with the asymmetrical hem and scattered embellishments,” says Sekrier.

2 1 1. SKETCH October 2015 Louis Vuitton proposes house-created illustrations of dress concepts to Vikander and Sekrier. Even this early version demonstrates Ghesquière’s concept for a floating hem. “One of the things I love about working with Nicolas is that it’s always a collaboration,” says Vikander.

3

3. TOILE FITTING December 8, 2015 Given the complicated construction of the dress—the skirt alone is to be made of four panels of silk taffeta totaling nearly 60 feet in length—a toile (fashion speak for a mock-up) is created so that the measurements for the entire pattern can be more precise. The initial fitting takes place in London.

5

5. EMBROIDERY January 2016 The floral pattern, comprised of a mix of gray and silver silicone oval beads, takes two weeks to complete. Simultaneously, 20 artisans embroider the fabric by hand. “We went through four types of embroidery until we settled on silver,” says Sekrier.

7. SECOND FITTING February 26, 2016 The bustier is carefully attached to the skirt so the patterns perfectly align. Vikander tries on the gown at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood and decides to shorten the train just slightly.

8. THIRD FITTING February 27, 2016 Vikander performs a full dress rehearsal. “Attendees tend to match the color of the shoes to their dresses,” Sekrier says. “But we agreed it would be more interesting to match the accessories to the embroidery and let the silver elevate the dress and radiate Alicia’s beauty.”

4. SPECIAL DYEING January 2016 The fabric is treated with a wash for a softer, vintage look. To add volume, the skirt is lined in double organza, measuring another 53 feet. Its stiffness creates a bubble effect to make the dress appear as if it is suspended in midair.

6. FIRST FITTING February 12, 2016 Once the embroidered panels of the skirt are hand-pleated and sewn together (by seven people in Vuitton’s dedicated atelier for custom fittings) and the bustier has been corseted inside, Vikander is able to try on separate pieces of the dress in London to finalize the shape.

9. OSCARS NIGHT February 28, 2016 After finishing touches— George Northwood does her hair, Kelly Cornwell her makeup—Vikander makes a memorable entrance that instantly inspires a Disney princess meme. In good fun, Sekrier posts an image on Instagram of Vikander in the place of Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Working to feed children from low-income families so they can thrive in school and at home

PA S S I O N

When Kristen Bell’s young daughters (Lincoln, 3, and Delta, 1) leave food untouched on their plates, she doesn’t stress over trying to get the wiggly toddlers to gobble down every last bite. Instead, she reminds them how lucky they are to have a home where warm dinners are a given and snacks are available on demand. “I want my kids to understand that meals don’t just come out of nowhere,� says Bell. “Everyone in the world has needs, and it’s important to consider them.� The actress, who stars in this month’s comedy The Boss with Melissa McCarthy, had a major change in perspective three years ago. “I was a new mom, and suddenly there was nothing more important to me than making sure my child had what she needed. I couldn’t imagine not being able to give her something as basic as food,� Bell explains. “I became hyperaware of how many kids are vulnerable right here in America.� She teamed up with No Kid Hungry to inform others that nearly 16 million children in this country don’t get enough food on a daily basis. The organization takes a three-tiered approach to nutritional support: It educates parents about how to shop and prepare food in a cost-effective and healthy way; it partners with schools to serve breakfast in classrooms daily; and it offers healthy food and activities during school vacations. “It’s a solvable issue because in the United States the food supply exists,� says Bell. “It’s just a matter of getting it into the mouths of those who need it the most.�

How She Got Involved “During college I spent a summer in Brazil and witnessed a level of poverty I hadn’t previously been aware of,� says Bell. “Now I always remind myself how important it is to be conscious of the needs of others.� Once she had kids of her own, she felt connected to the struggles of other moms. “Of course parents want to help their kids get basic necessities,� she says. “But parents should also want to help other parents.�

Meals provided to date by No Kid Hungry

Why It Matters Studies show that when children go to school on an empty stomach, their ability to learn is compromised and they’re more likely to act out in the classroom and at home. “I’ve visited schools where they hand out breakfast,â€? says Bell. “In addition to getting the nutritional beneďŹ t, these kids come alive socially because they feel nurtured.â€?

What You Can Do Visit Nokidhungry.org to volunteer with a local group that distributes meals in your area, or make a donation to expand No Kid Hungry’s reach. “We’re providing meals for one million hungry kids,� says Bell. “But that means there are still 15 million little ones who don’t have enough to eat.� —CHRISTINA SHANAHAN

ØC 0íI ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION The annual viewing party hosted by Sir Elton John and David Furnish had a name befitting the tented scene in West Hollywood Park: “We’re calling it One Crazy Night as a nod to my newest album, Wonderful Crazy Night,” John told guests. Partygoers grooved as he performed 10 songs, but according to him, the best part of the evening was seeing friends come together for a cause. The fête raised more than $6 million to support HIV and AIDS research. —CARITA RIZZO “I’ve always been a colorful character,” laughed SIR ELTON JOHN, in Keith Haberstroh.

“Hearing ‘Tiny Dancer’ live tonight was a dream,” said LEA MICHELE, in Pamella Roland, with CHEYENNE JACKSON.

“I hope Elton plays his song ‘Daniel’ because that’s my brother’s name,” said HILARY SWANK, in Michael Kors Collection, with LANA DEL REY, in Vivienne Westwood Couture.

o this is a fashion story, huh?” asks Chris Evans, as he lies back on his sofa and kicks his red Timberland Earthkeepers onto the wooden coffee table in his Los Angeles home. “Well, it may be my last one. If I were the only man left on this earth, I’d be wearing sweatpants every day for the rest of my life.” The 34-year-old Bostonarea native may not be a sartorial savant, but just days earlier the scruffy Captain America stud attended the Academy Awards looking dapper in a simple black Prada tuxedo, bow tie, and slicked-back hair. “It was an out-of-body experience,” he says. “I grew up watching the Oscars, so being there makes me appreciate how far I’ve come.” As a teenager, Evans started his acting career in the educational video Biodiversity: Wild About Life! Nearly two decades later, the actor is headlining two major upcoming movies: the third installment of his blockbuster Marvel series, Captain America: Civil War, and the Marc Webb– directed family drama Gifted. The latter is a departure from his superhero filmography, but Evans, who has observed Buddhism since his early 20s, believes in taking on projects he connects with. “I want everything I do to come from a pure place so that I don’t become soured by the experience. I just like things to be easy in my everyday life,” he admits. “I don’t even like shaving.”

Clearly, you’re not a huge fashion guy. How would you describe your approach to style?

I try to be simple, classic, and clean. I don’t like my jeans to be too frilly, so I go with basic Levi’s and a fitted white T shirt. I appreciate a retro vibe—a nice James Dean or Paul Newman look. It takes me about two minutes to get dressed, but then I’ll get photographed sometimes and think, Oh, s—. I look like a bum. Do you ever accessorize? I always prioritize function. I like Barton Perreira sunglasses because I have very weak eyes, so I’m always squinting—there you go, that’s fashiony! You can’t really go wrong with Ray-Bans either. If

I’m going to get all dressed up and go to the nines, an IWC Schaffhausen watch is nice. How about shoes? My favorite article of clothing is a good pair of sneakers. Solid footwear makes me feel more secure, athletic, and mobile. I’m not into labels, so I don’t care what kind of sneakers they are as long as they’re comfortable and the laces tie. I’m not the barefoot type of guy. So it’s safe to say you prefer to be fully clothed too? Yes. I’m definitely not a

walk-around-naked person. Do you think guys have it easier on the red carpet? Absolutely. More often than not,

women are judged more harshly on what they’re wearing in photos. Most women I know say that they get dressed up for other women. I don’t see a bunch of guys sitting around asking, “What is he wearing?” For women it’s got to be a lot of pressure when they’re dressing for events. Ever had a mishap of your own when you’ve borrowed designer clothes? Let’s just say

that if I’m wearing high-end pieces, I’m probably going to an event, which means I’m going to have a few drinks. I’ve certainly woken up with a few mystery stains on the previous night’s suit. You’ve recently been out promoting Captain America: Civil War. How is this film different from the others? The

directors, the Russo brothers, have a way of making it feel extremely relatable and real amid flashes of superhero fanfare. When I first got the offer to be a part of this franchise, the thought of a multipicture contract that could last eight years of my life was stressful and scary. But doing these movies was the best decision of my life. You also star in Gifted, which deals with a man battling with his mother over custody of his niece. Was it a challenge getting into character? No, I found it to be really

relatable. Every family has issues—my own parents are not together. I was 18 and out of the house when it happened, so I had the good years.

Did you feel like you had something to prove by taking on a more dramatic role?

I try not to do anything based on what other people think of me. I think most actors get into the industry because it’s fun and gives them joy. But along the way, your joy and hobby become your job. When it becomes your job, it gets infused with a sense of fear. Doing something to prove yourself is fear-based. I don’t think it’s a healthy way to work or to live your life. Has Hollywood changed you over the years?

I can’t deny that it’s had an effect, but I think it’s a positive one. Instead of trying to figure

out how to play the game, I’ve come to realize that it’s more important to remind myself that I don’t have to win today and I don’t actually have to play at all. Obstacles and hurdles are man-made. I won’t say it’s not useful to self-reflect, but I realize the part of you that’s fueling the self-reflection is actually more akin to your ego than to the situation you’re in. What’s your perception of yourself right now? Curious, passionate, loyal, direct,

honest, and overanalytical to a fault. I feel a lot of goodness, joy, and happiness. Until I don’t find that anymore, I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. ■

FO R C H A N E L FOR HIS L ATEST MÉTIERS D’ART COLLECTION , THE UNSTOPPABLE FASHION FORCE RE-CREATES THE STREETS OF PARIS ON A MOVIE SET IN ROME, THIS TIME WITH A PRODUCTION WORTHY OF FELLINI by ERIC WILSON

CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART, PRE-FALL 2016


ØC 0íI arl, this is gorgeous,” I say upon entering a makeshift Chanel studio in the library of a hotel atop Rome’s Spanish Steps. Lagerfeld sits at a table overseeing the final details of his pre-fall Métiers d’Art collection (highlighting the skills of its individual artisans), which will be shown at the legendary Cinecittà film studios, along with a film about Coco Chanel, Once and Forever, written and directed by the designer himself. “It’s because I’ve got a good model,” he says, nodding to a sultry brunette who is a dead ringer for an Aida-era Sophia Loren. It’s actually Bella Hadid, and the resemblance is intentional. Lagerfeld wants to cultivate a cinematic ideal of French fashion as seen through an Italian lens, his salve for the wounds of the Paris terrorist attacks that took place just a few weeks before the show. Your approach to fashion seems to be increasingly like that of a film director rather than a designer. Why is that? Well, that’s

because I am what the French call a bonne à tout faire, a maid who does everything. I create the set, the costumes, the dialogue– that is the way I handle everything. It is the general opinion of a single person. Most other designers would complain they are overburdened, but you keep adding to your workload. What’s your advice for accomplishing more in a day? I do nothing

else. To me, it’s normal, like breathing. Before I even give a sketch to the studio, I think everything over and what it should be, so there are no hesitations. I don’t have to have 100 toiles made just so I can pick one. I see it. I like it. Or I don’t like it. That certainly sounds efficient. Yes, but other people think it’s more professional when it takes 100 hours to make something. They’ll feel more important. I don’t care about feeling important. You’ve shown Chanel collections all over the world, so why take us to Rome this time?

Because I love Rome. I have been here more than 800 times in my life, and Chanel had those connections with actresses who appeared in movies filmed here. Sometimes strangers have a better view of the spirit and essence of a country than the people who are born there because they are not obsessed

with any patriotic feeling. That’s why I don’t make things in Germany. Rome, after Paris, is the city I know best. I feel totally at home.

FOOTNOTES

Any tips for a tourist? Where to get pizza?

There’s not much room left for sightseeing. I don’t want to be a tourist. And I don’t eat pizza. I eat only 1,500 calories a day, and pizza is not on the list. Though I do like the idea of it. What’s the elevator pitch for your latest film? This is a story of a young director who

has to make a biopic of Coco Chanel, but the actress who plays her at a young age, Kristen Stewart, won’t work with him. So there’s a big tension there, and another tension between her and Geraldine Chaplin, who plays Chanel at an older age. In the end, Kristen admits that Geraldine is the finer version of Chanel–the old lady with the hat, which is also the final image the world has of Chanel herself. Someone like me who can make an easy cartoon.

1. Director’s Seat The runway setting was the Fascist-era film studios that gave Rome the nickname Hollywood on the Tiber.

2. Cinéma Vérité After the show, the Parisian streetscape came to life, complete with French and Italian treats.

Did you know that the movie Coco Chanel starring Shirley MacLaine was filmed at Cinecittà? That was a TV movie—

embarrassing. Shirley MacLaine was at least a great actress, but she could not play Chanel. It’s a lovely tribute that you’ve chosen to re-create the streets of Paris for the set just a few weeks after the terrorist attacks. Were you trying to make a statement? I built

a perfect Paris in a moment when Paris is far from perfect. What is going on there today is unbelievable. But it’s more about the air than the reality since the city perhaps never really existed this way. You know, the first movie I saw as a child was Les Enfants du Paradis, which takes place in the 1830s and 1840s. I know every frame. Everything. It’s a romantic idea of Paris. Times are not that romantic today. So we have to work on that.

3. Movie Madeleine Lagerfeld’s childhood favorite, Les Enfants du Paradis, inspired the bleached-out black-and-white stage design.

Part II was a screening in a specially constructed amphitheater of Once and Forever, directed by Lagerfeld and starring Kristen Stewart and Geraldine Chaplin as Coco Chanel young and old. But the main event was a runway extravaganza of jeune fille fashion, capped by an appearance by the designer with his favorite male models (led by his godson, Hudson Kroenig) dressed as newsboys.

“To be around people who love fashion so much is really inspiring. I love seeing their faces light up when a piece comes out of the archives and I get to wear it.” —KRISTEN STEWART

Calf leather, Alumnae, $475; alumnae.nyc.

There’s nothing complicated about this season’s barely there silhouettes. And that’s precisely the point. True, they come in every incarnation imaginable (boudoir-inspired with lace trim, bias-cut with graphic stripes), but other than that, they embody the same I-just-threw-this-on appeal they did way back in 1992. Play up the louche, irreverent vibe by shuffling into a pair of easy flats. The result is undeniably sexy and way more unexpected than a body-con number and high heels. Winona Ryder would absolutely approve.

Sometimes we take our mothers for granted or are too hard on them. Mother’s Day is a time to show your gratitude instead. The best gift you can give these special women is something personal and filled with love that you know they’ll want to use every day.

FOR THE MOM WHO IS EXPECTING So much is about to change for her. Give her a beautiful embossed-leather journal so she can record her goals and experiences while life is moving so fast. Choose one without lines and include a mix of colored pencils and pens so she can write and sketch without boundaries.

FOR THE MOM WHO NEVER ASKS FOR ANYTHING Maybe she is particular or doesn’t care about material things. The reason doesn’t matter—you can still treat her by picking out something she wouldn’t think to buy for herself, such as a locket with a photo inside. Or plan an activity she might enjoy doing with you, like attending the theater or ballet. 14kt gold locket necklace, Catbird, $168; catbirdnyc.com.

MOVE PAST BOOT CUT

“Yes, this shape is safe, but I always like to try new trends, especially when it comes to jeans. Right now I’m searching for the perfect boyfriend style, which looks so good with heels and a ďŹ tted top. Just make sure the back pocket isn’t too small—that makes your butt look larger than it is.â€?

LEARN TO LOVE CROPPED TOPS

“I’ll never get sick of the cropped top. You might think that wearing one means you have to show skin, but it’s not true. I have shorter legs, so when I put one over a highwaist skirt or pants, it is unbelievably elongating.�



EMBRACE STRIPES

“They always say you can’t wear stripes as a plus-size girl, but I don’t get it. Stripes will make you seem taller, not wider, if you look for pieces that skim your curves. I opt for separates so I can get a tailored ďŹ t on the top and the bottom.â€?

The number on your tag is just that—a number. It’s more important to have clothes in your closet that actually ďŹ t.â€? 152

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6



DON’T BE A SLAVE TO SHAPEWEAR

“Some women feel as if they need to live in their Spanx, but I like when my butt jiggles. I think it’s cute! When I do want some added support, I like Addition Elle’s body wrap. It goes all the way around your shoulders, so you don’t have to worry about back fat.�



PILE ON YOUR JEWELRY

“I’ve heard people reason that if you wear a statement necklace, it brings attention to a thick neck. The reality? Beautiful jewelry looks beautiful on everyone. I’m the type who layers necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings all at the same time—it can be a total outďŹ t-maker.â€?

Get Schooled by theSkimm THE WEARABLE THAT BOOSTS YOUR MENTAL HEALTH

The story We swear by theSkimm’s witty daily news digest. Now, founders Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin are débuting Skimm Ahead, a subscription service for the iPhone.

Hitting the doublestuffed Oreos every time your in-box overflows? There’s a better way to deal. Sona’s sleek leather and rose gold bracelet uses a heart rate–variability metric to look out for signs of stress, then guides you through breathing exercises in the corresponding app.

Cool. What is it? While theSkimm is all about what you need to know today and what happened yesterday, Skimm Ahead fills you in on what you need to know in the future. Like what? When Beyoncé tickets go on sale, when the Marimekko for Target collection launches, or what time the State of the Union airs.

Sona Connected Bracelet, $199; caeden.com.

Do I have to pay? Yes. But the $3 monthly fee is less than your Starbucks order.

THE APPS THAT HELP YOU NAB A PERSONAL STYLIST You don’t have to be a red-carpet star to be treated like a VIP. Let pros work their magic with these three at-home services. Armarium A stylist will weigh in on what suits your taste and body type and loan you luxury finds for upcoming events. Ah, so that’s what it’s like to be Charlize. Boon + Gable Consider this boot camp for your closet. An expert will evaluate what you already have, then source new complementary pieces. HelloShopper Have a vision of that perfect bag but don’t know where to get it? Your very own shopping MacGyver will hunt down options that fit your description, then scour the Internet to get you the lowest possible price. All apps are free; available on iTunes. The services are complimentary, but item prices vary depending on what you buy.

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

What about my daily Skimm? Not going away. Still free. Still in your in-box. Where can I get this? A little place called the app store. Once it’s downloaded, Skimm Ahead integrates with your cal so you’ll always be in the know.

SCORE WORKOUT SWAG ON DEMAND Here’s motivation to make that 7 A.M. spin class. Create a SweatStyle (mysweatstyle.com) profile to receive a curated box of athleisure apparel as often as you’d like. Keep—and get charged for—what you love and send back the rest.

Chalk it up to the enduring appeal of icons Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor: Stripes and leopard spots are basically neutrals by now. Their clean, graphic nature makes them a low-risk combo, especially in mostly muted, earthy tones.

The key to marrying blooms without looking like wallpaper on the go? Vary your bouquet, but tie it all together with a unifying color. We like stark white to give the eyes a visual breather.

When you’ve got two patterns that have nothing in common, it’s important to stick to a subdued palette—think blacks, browns, and creams as your bases. Sheer materials also go a long way to turn down the volume on a motif.

Different textures, like fluid silks and nubby knits, provide some much-needed depth and separation in a three-way mash-up of clashing hues. Keeping within a similar scale helps prevent sensory overload as well.

IF YOU HAVE DARK SPOTS Ask a doctor about a Fraxel Thulium resurfacing laser, which N.Y.C. dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank says can stimulate skin, prompting it to produce collagen and healthy (pigment-free) skin cells. The procedure may cost $800 to $1,800, depending on the treatment, and you’ll need one or two sessions to see results in a couple of months, he says. IF YOU HAVE VISIBLE CAPILLARIES When collagen gets damaged by the sun, it can make blood vessels more apparent, says N.Y.C. dermatologist Ellen Marmur, who suggests looking into intense pulsed light therapy. A device sends bursts of light into skin, damaging and eventually eliminating the vessels. You may need up to five treatments at about $250 to $500 each.

Jen Atkin is one of the world’s most in-demand stylists—not only because of her red-carpet clients but also because of her millions of social-media followers, who track her travels from Cannes to Dubai. Find out which of her cool-girl hair tricks have us all hooked and scrolling for more. SHE WORKS WITH THREE TYPES OF IRONS TO GET NATURAL-LOOKING WAVES “I want my clients to appear as if I

haven’t touched their hair,” says Atkin. A lot goes into that undone do: She relies on a trio of hot tools—O-inch, 1-inch, and 1N-inch rods— from her favorite brands, GHD, Harry Josh, and T3. Atkin grabs the largest one to wave the bottom half of hair; she then alternates the other two irons, using each to add bends to the upper half. Winding sections around the irons in different directions is also key. “No one wakes up with perfectly uniform waves,” she says. “By making the pattern random, you get a more authentic effect.” SHE TINTS CLIENTS’ SCALPS WITH MAKEUP Atkin often reaches for Color

Wow Root Cover Up ($35; ulta.com), an eyeshadow-like powder that “blends easily into the hairline.” She covers scalps with the product, filling in patches to immediately convey a fuller head of hair. The trick is a godsend for new moms experiencing the shedding that often accompanies the sudden drop in hormones post-pregnancy, she says. SHE INFLATES FINE STRANDS WITH SUGAR WATER While Atkin’s new hair-care line, Ouai (pronounced “way,” as in “way cool”), contains a talc-free texturizer and a rice-protein wave spray for subtle volume, you can score massive 12-hour body with her kitchen recipe: Mix 2 teaspoons of sugar into 14 ounces of water. Shake up the blend in a spray bottle, then mist it on damp strands pre-blowout. “It makes hair look like cotton candy,” she says. But after drying, “it sets and has incredible hold. You can mold the shape with an iron or pull it up for a voluminous, textured updo.”

Follow Jen Atkin on Instagram, Periscope, Snapchat, and Twitter @jenatkinhair

She’s based in L.A. now, working with stars like Reese Witherspoon (above) and Khloé Kardashian, but Atkin grew up in Hawaii, which fueled her passion at a young age for creating believable beach hair.

EASY STEPS TO AIR-DRIED WAVES Sure, her three-iron technique produces effortless-looking curls, but there has to be a faster way, right? Yep! Check out Atkin’s heat-free shortcut to a tousled (and no less sexy) look. STEP 1 Use a gentle brush to detangle hair post-shower (try Sheila Stotts Removal Brush, $28; sheila stotts.com) and make a center part. If you have fine hair, work a volumizing mousse (like Ouai Soft Mousse, $28; theouai.com) through strands. On thick or coarse hair, apply a moisturizing styling cream. You’re building hold, texture, and body here. STEP 2 S Spritz a wave or Sp each spray (such as be uai Wave Spray, Ou 6; theouai.com) $26 overr strands.

On Pinterest Mane Addicts The founder of this website and hairstylist forum, Atkin scrolls through pics like this, featuring braids, curls, and clipped updos created by red-carpet pros.

1-inch sections around them; release after a few seconds to help set the shape. STEP 3 On either side of your part, slip on three duckbill clips in a vertical row (we like Rickycare Rainbow Aluminum Duckbill Clips, $7/6; rickysnyc .com). The bottom one should hover above your ear; allow hair to dry before removing. Not only does this step keep the strands on top of your head smooth (“combating that halo of frizz,” she says), but the clips create subtle bends in your hair, enhancing the tousled texture.

ou grew up in England, but you’ve also lived in New York. How is the British approach to beauty different from the American? I think we Brits

are very low-maintenance. For good or bad, you rarely walk around New York or L.A. and see women as grungy as you do in London. In the U.S. they always have their hair and nails done, which isn’t big culturally in England. I am not a sleek person in any way. When I look sleek, I feel like I’m pretending. Were you into makeup as a teenager? I wore smudgy black eyeliner. And I didn’t do anything with my skin until I started getting acne, at which point I did everything possible to get rid of it. I tried a million products, but none of them worked. I had bad skin up until I was 25. I later learned that it was more about diet and hormonal changes. How has your routine changed now that you’re a mother? I have naturally crazy curly

hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks. My skin has also become significantly drier with age, so I moisturize, and I try to drink as much water as possible. Aside from that, my teeth are always brushed, and I use lip balm. My new approach is “Do what you can remember, and don’t worry about it too much.” Over the years what’s been the biggest risk you’ve taken with your look? I have

dyed my hair virtually every color imaginable for different films. It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair. What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received? I was told very early on that if

a makeup artist tries to take your eyebrows off, that means he is absolute s—. —KAHLANA BARFIELD BROWN

ØC(GòML4MîCQ I’VE ALWAYS HAD LARGE PORES. WHY? You likely have genetics to thank. “Large pores tend to run in the family,” says N.Y.C. dermatologist Robert Anolik. And if you’ve also got a perpetually shiny T-zone, consider the cards doubly stacked against you. “Oily-skin types have a higher number of sebaceous glands secreting sebum,” says N.Y.C. dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank. “That oil sits inside and oxidizes, turning a dark color, making your pores look bigger.” And does it seem as though your pores are actually expanding as you age? You’re not going crazy. Pore walls do lose elasticity as collagen breaks down, beginning somewhere around age 30, and it’s this sagging that can make them look even more cavernous.

IS THERE ANY REAL WAY TO SHRINK THEM?

It’s essential to take care of YOURSELF first.”

Shrink? No. But by exfoliating twice weekly, you can reduce their appearance, says Dr. Anolik, who favors the pore-clearing effect of salicylic acid–based formulas, such as this one by Dr. Brandt. A daily cleanser infused with anti-inflammatory coconut o (like this version from Laneige) can help smooth the edges around pores, also making them less noticeable, adds Dr. Anolik. Still plagued by craters? Consult your dermatologist about in-office options like the acne-fighting Isolaz laser (from $200 to $600 per session), which uses short bursts of suction to clear pores much more thoroughly than at-home sloughing. Dr. Anolik says that after the 15-minute treatment you’ll immediately see more-even-looking skin and that those results can last for a couple of months. Just don’t plan a first Tinder date right after—this type of procedure may leave your face a bit red and agitated for a few days. Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion, $58; sephora.com.

ØC(GòML4MîCQ CAN I JUST HIDE THEM WITH MAKEUP? First, you want to smooth things over with a siliconebased primer, says L.A. makeup artist Beau Nelson, who prefers the blurring abilities of Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer ($39; sephora.com). Then, follow up with a satiny foundation to impart a natural glow. Because the result is slightly dewy, not flat, “it won’t exaggerate concave pores the way a matte version might,” Nelson says. If you still feel as if your T-zone is dotted with potholes after you’ve applied your makeup, spot-correct using a domed eyeshadow brush, like Sonia Kashuk’s, dipped in translucent powder, buffing until you’ve effectively filled in pores. Charlotte Tilbury’s Air-Brush Flawless Finish Powder melts into—as opposed to sitting on top of—skin due to moisturizing rose wax, Nelson says. Finally, employ some strategic strobing: “Apply highlighter high up on the outer edges of your cheekbones to draw attention away from pore-prone areas like your nose and cheeks,” Nelson says. “Shimmer products reflect light and would only exaggerate those other trouble spots.” Sonia Kashuk Kashuk Tools Large Domed Eye Shadow Brush, $13; target.com. Charlotte Tilbury Air-Brush Flawless Finish Powder, $45; at Nordstrom.

CAN YOU GET ADDICTED TO PORE STRIPS? I AM ON THE VERGE!

Not if you’re using them properly, says Dr. Frank. These cloths “remove the plugs clogging pores,” he says, which is why the remnants left on the strip look like little cylinders. But “be sure to follow the instructions, including peeling them off gently after 15 minutes at most,” says Dr. Frank. And no matter how gratifying they may be, don’t apply them more than twice a week. Otherwise, says Dr. Frank, you run the risk of irritating, or even ripping off, the surface skin.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS MAKEUP

0M?BCB&?QCQ PRIMER Hourglass Veil Mineral If the whole “creating the perfect canvas for your makeup” thing has always seemed like high-maintenance hype, hear this: Worn alone, the silky, serumlik formula f like blurs fine lines, even around the eyes, says L.A. makeup artist Bruce Grayson (a pro at showcasing fresh, dewy looks on clients like Chrissy Teigen). And when applied under a layer of foundation, this mineral lotion stays in place and holds your base with zero slippery residue. $52; sephora.com.

Hall of Fame Winner LIQUID FOUNDATION Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk We know streakfree, goof-proof foundation is the holy grail of makeup—and this liquid gold has been satisfying epic quests for more than a decade. “It can take a red, blemished complexion and turn it into a gorgeous, glowing one,” says N.Y.C. makeup artist Gita Bass. In an impressive range of shades (24 hues in all), the buildable, blendable base adds “radiance without looking greasy,” no matter your age, says Bass, who has used the product on clients such as Selena Gomez and Debra Messing. $62; giorgioarmani beauty-usa.com.

POWDER FOUNDATION Chanel Does opening up a compact to apply powder foundation feel a bit old-school? This one can help you conquer your fear of

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

caking. “Powders get a bad rap, but this formula really blends into skin,” says Grayson, who also loves Chanel’s lineup of 14 shades. Use one over the T-zone to dial down shine, or as a midday touch-up over liquid foundation, says N.Y.C. makeup artist Megan Lanoux. $55; chanel.com.

Hall of Fame Winner TINTED MOISTURIZER Laura Mercier Call it an original skin care–makeup hybrid. This is a cult-classic hydrator that can be anything you need it to be. Feeling time-poor? Bl d a ffew drops into skin Blend (with or without a mirror) to subtly even out your complexion. Woke up rested and luminous? Lucky! Cut it with moisturizer for a thinner veil of coverage. Been a long week? Build as you go with a sponge, as L.A. makeup artist Fabiola does, for a finish that’s never gummy or artificiallooking. $44; lauramercier .com.

Hall of Fame Winner INEXPENSIVE FOUNDATION L’Oréal Paris True Match Makeup artists marvel at this well-priced foundation line’s eyebrowraising 28 hues (with cool, warm, and neutral tones that can sync with all complexions, says Grayson) that provide a non-chalky, oil-free finish. L.A. pro Ashleigh Louer notes that the satin-like formula “mimics the look of skin instead of just covering it up.” Dabble or go all in, says L.A. makeup artist Daniel Chinchilla: “No matter how much you put on, it still looks natural.” $11; lorealparisusa.com.

BB/CC CREAM Diorskin Nude As great for every day as it is for an evening out (one word: glow), this complexion booster feels superlight yet lends a sheer-to-medium finish. As one of the few BB creams “with a yellow, not pink, undertone,” says Washington, D.C., pro Johny Saade, “it’s ideal for neutralizing redness.” It also plays well with others; mix it with base for added coverage under eyes. $45; dior.com.

TRANSLUCENT POWDER Laura Mercier Like the thought of putting your foundation on lockdown but don’t want to risk pancake

face? This microfine powder is for you. It does the job without settling into lines or turning skin ashy, adding just the slightest hint of warmth. It’s so “invisible,” you can use it just in spots where foundation tends to slip, like around the nose, says Louer, who applies it with a velour puff. $38; lauramercier.com.

Hall of Fame Winner CONCEALER Clé de Peau Beauté It looks like a stick, but makeup artists swear it’s a magic wand, erasing dark circles and covering breakouts with one assured swipe. L.A. k makeup artist Kirin Bhatty uses the “concentrated yet creaseless” cream on clients Jessica Paré and Kiernan Shipka. Bass cops to using the coveted fixer every day—on herself—for its all-purpose coverage and “not too dry, not too greasy” consistency. $70; cledepeaubeaute.com.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS MAKEUP

&Cõ&CR &JSQFCQ Hall of Fame Winner POWDER BLUSH Nars While the brand’s cheeky shade names are enough to make you blush (Deep Throat, Orgasm, Sex Appeal—we kid you not), these legendary powders pack serious pigments. “Most blushes tend to look ashy or sheer on dark skin, but with Nars, you can find one that lights up pale, medium, and dark complexions,” says Johny Saade. Their vivid, trendsetting colors also pass the grown-upglitter test: They’re not too flat and not too flashy. $30; narscosmetics.com.

Hall of Fame Winner CREAM BLUSH Stila Convertible Color No clown cheeks here. Makeup artists, like L.A. pro Elaine Offers, coax a healthy, sheer flush with this velvety cream. “It’s been in my kit for my entire career,” she says. Offers likes to dot on the formula with a stippling brush to bring dewiness and life to her clients’ faces (perhaps after a late night at the Chateau Marmont). Classic hues such as Peony, Petunia, and Poppy are vibrant, versatile favorites, she says. $25; stilacosmetics.com.

ECOFRIENDLY BLUSH Becca Mineral Think pink looks a bit “baby doll” on your skin? Makeup artists call this mineral-based powder a foolproof pick for those who want a diffused rosy glow with just a touch of sheen. Use it on its own, or brush it over a cream blush

212

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

for a more vibrant hue that still comes off as believable. $32; sephora.com.

Hall of Fame Winner BRONZER Guerlain Terracotta Turns out bronzing your skin can be a lot like highlighting your hair: You may need myriad tones to conjure a natural effect—and not a flat, one-dimensional color. Bruce Grayson grabs this brand’s line of powders for clients like Julianne Hough. The multifaceted formulas are also the go-to glow boosters for L.A. makeup artist Andre Sarmiento. Should a shade contain shimmer, it’ll melt into skin, so it never looks uneven or patchy, says Sarmiento. $53; saks.com.

E ECOFRIENDLY F BRONZER B MAC M Cosmetics C M Made with 77 mineral i l complexes l (as opposed to, say, 248 chemical compounds), this finely milled powder delivers a hit of golden sun without baking you “Oompa Loompa orange” or skewing “muddy,” says Fabiola. $32; maccosmetics.com.

HIGHLIGHTER Becca Skin Perfector Pressed If we got a lottery ticket each time a pro used the phrase “candlelit glow” to describe the effect of this powder, we’d have hit the jackpot long ago. Armed with this strobing compact (which comes in six beaming hues, from pale gold to warm bronze to pinky

copper), you can bring light to your face with just a few brushstrokes. Aim for the bridge of your nose, above cheekbones and your Cupid’s bow, and along the brow bones to create flickering highlights, Gita Bass advises. But why stop there? Hit your collarbone and that new off-the-shoulder top will look that much sexier. $38; sephora.com.

ECOFRIENDLY BRUSHES Ecotools “You never feel like you’re making a sacrifice by using these brushes,” says Bass, who loves how the synthetic, cruelty-free bristles feel soft, not stiff, and glide across skin without scratching. Plus, “they hold liquids and powders just as well as animal-based

versions,” she says, allowing for an even distribution of product. $10; ecotools.com.

BLUSH BRUSH Nars Yachiyo Kabuki If you recognize that sculptural, handmade look, it’s probably because you’ve spotted this brush in your Instagram feed. Pros perpetually pack it in their kits (we’ve spied it several times backstage during Fashion Week). And they’re grabbing it for more than just blush. “This brush has changed my life,” says Daniel Chinchilla. The soft goat-hair bristles “are perfect for blending your makeup and setting your foundation,” he says. And without any sharp edges, the dome shape even works to contour the face, he says. “It’s the one brush you absolutely need.” $55; narscosmetics.com.

EDITOR’S PICK SPONGE Blotterazzi by Beautyblender

“You’ll never go back to blotting paper after trying this flat sponge, which soaks up oil and shine without messing up your makeup.” —MARIANNE MYCHASKIW, ASSOCIATE BEAUTY EDITOR $20. Go to instyle.com/bbbpicks for discount from April 15 to May 12.

In addition, “the formulas are so silky, there’s no chalkiness to the finishes,” says Fabiola. “They glide over the lids.” $80; tomford.com.

ECOFRIENDLY EYE SHADOW BareMinerals Ready 2.0

For Megan Lanoux, the best way to describe these cushiony, shimmering shadows is with three letters: OMG. Trust us when we say that this is the gel-based eye “mousse” you never knew you needed. “It’s my obsession and always tucked inside my red-carpet kit,” says L.A. makeup artist Jeannia Robinette. She likes to add a light gold shade as an “elevating and ethereal” touch on top of Miranda Lambert’s smoky eyes before the country singer hits the stage. “It eliminates that heavy feeling.” You can also brush lash lines with the dark, mysterious Ocean Light shade (shown) and use it as eyeliner, suggests Lanoux. She notes that you could “literally put it on lids with your fingers and it would look good.” It also wouldn’t go anywhere—the formula is budge-proof, crease-proof, and smearproof. $36; chanel.com.

Makeup junkies wait for a new Urban Decay Naked palette like techies do for the latest iPhone—with a “hopped-up kindergartner waiting for recess” kind of anticipation. But the original version is still the biggest hit with makeup pros. Here’s why: The 12-hue kit (which comes with a dualended brush) is filled with neutrals in matte and metallic finishes; they’re the tones grown-up girls will reach for daily. The powders go on easily without fallout, which means you won’t catch yourself midday in a mirror with random flecks of shadow halfway down your face. $54; urbandecay.com.

They had us at midnight teal paired with a perfect creamy beige—we’re imagining a polished lid with a hit of surprise along the lash line. But in addition to what L.A. makeup artist Mai Quynh calls the “well-coordinated, complementary, and user-friendly” color duos, these mineral shadows are also beloved for how easily they blend and how long they hold up. $20; bareminerals.com.

EYELINER PENCIL Urban Decay 24/7 Maybe it’s a lot to ask for an eyeliner pencil to glide on softly without a trace of drag, then dry down to a perma-line that a river of tears can’t wash away. But this stick delivers. “You can wear it to the beach or on your wedding day. You can even use it in the

GEL EYELINER Bobbi Brown Once this ink sets, there’s no going back. “It stays forever,” says Andre Sarmiento, who dips into this pot to add “structure and definition all around eyes.” If that sounds a little intimidating, know that while this gel has the lasting effect of a liquid liner, makeup artists also find its creamy consistency a relative cinch to work with. “It goes on seamlessly across the lid but isn’t super-wet, so it doesn’t move all over the place,” says Johny Saade. $26; bobbibrown cosmetics.com.

LIQUID EYELINER Kat Von D Tattoo Liner If your regular routine typically includes a cat eye, this is the liquid liner to grab, says L.A. makeup artist Allan Avendaño, who uses it “all the time” on Sarah Hyland. Along with its intense jet-black shade, the magic is in the brush tip. The ultraprecise point won’t fray and, Avendaño notes, is essential to color over a strip of false lashes. Just dot it between hairs for the look of crazylush fringe. $19; sephora.com.

Hall of Fame Winner EYE-MAKEUP E REMOVER R Lancôme L Iff there’s anything t that can make t taking off that s smoky eye less of a c chore at 1 A.M. (or 3 A.M.—no jjudgment), d ) iit’s this well-loved erase-everything liquid that is “really gentle, lifting off makeup

without a lot of rubbing,” says Sarmiento. Its oils not only dissolve the remains of your liner and mascara, but they leave the fragile skin around eyes feeling moisturized “without making your eyes all cloudy.” (You’ll have enough of that in the morning.) $30; lancome-usa.com.

MAKEUP-REMOVER WIPES Neutrogena Towelettes It was actress Hayden Panettiere, says Robinette, who turned her on to these gentle wipes. They manage to “get off waterproof makeup” without leaving a residue on your skin, she says. They’re also key when traveling—Robinette says singer Miranda Lambert uses them while on tour. Bonus: They’re also awesome at “prepping the skin before makeup,” she says, removing whatever may be on your face (stray concealer from last night, toothpaste residue from this morning). “They just leave your skin feeling so clean.” $6/25 wipes; neutrogena.com.

Hall of Fame Winner TWEEZER Tweezerman “I had these on a photo shoot and a model did her eyebrows with them in, like, two minutes,” says Robinette. And that wasn’t just expert know-how at work: These sharp, slanted go-to’s slip under baby hairs that other tweezers can’t even come close to grabbing. Better yet, thanks to their superfine tips, they do so “without discomfort,” Bass adds—so no more screaming obscenities at yourself in the mirror after an accidental skin pinch. $23; tweezerman.com.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS MAKEUP

)ÿC(CbLGLE )ôCL÷?JQ OVERALL MASCARA Lancôme Hypnôse Do you want subtle, everyday definition for your fringe? Then don’t look here—this tube brings loads of drama. It’s the closest you’ll get to falsies without adhesive thanks to a gel-like, vitamin B–spiked volumizing formula. First, use the flat side of the brush to deliver ink right into the roots, says Bruce Grayson, then twirl on over to the rounded side “to comb through hairs for optimal separation at the tips.” $28; lancome-usa.com.

INEXPENSIVE MASCARA L’Oréal Voluminous Original “I have tried so many mascaras, and I always go back to this one,” says Megan Lanoux. The formula “lengthens and thickens your lashes without ever clumping.” The carbon black shade is particularly impressive, says Ashleigh Louer: “It’s so dark and pigmented that it produces the most dramatic effect on every eye color.” Major props to the brand’s Voluminous Waterproof version too. Makeup artists say the staying power is incomparable, outlasting cry fests, sweat sessions, and laps in the pool. $8; lorealparisusa.com.

EYE SHADOW BRUSH MAC 217 Have you ever completely spaced out in the makeup-brush aisle trying to choose the ideal shadow applicator only to throw up your hands and walk away with nothing? No more. This is the one: Makeup artists get excited when they talk about their love of

216

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

this tool, which Louer says she buys “10 at a time.” The reason is sheer versatility. The prop expertly deposits both creams and powders (including undereye concealer), the soft synthetic bristles smoothing and stippling formulas into a seamless finish. Perhaps its greatest talent is perfecting the ever-popular, notoriously tricky smoky eye. Grayson says he uses the oval-shaped head “like a windshield wiper” along the creases of lids to blend and diffuse even the sootiest of shades. $25; maccosmetics.com.

Hall of Fame Winner EYELASH CURLER Shu Uemura When you curl thousands of sets of eyelashes, as makeup artists like Johny Saade do, you get kind of attached to your pro tool. “This is the first lash curler I ever used, and it will be the last,” declares Gita Bass. “It is my desert-island product,” says Kirin Bhatty. Let’s first focus on what this awardwinning tool doesn’t do: pinch, snag, snap, or damage lashes. What it does just right is deliver the perfect curl (not crimp) in a single squeeze. You don’t need to keep clamping, trying to grab all the baby hairs in the inner corners, says Saade. And Bass adds that it comfortably cradles and “works on 99 percent of all eye shapes.” If you’re still scared to bring this metal gadget anywhere near your eyes, try this approach: Prop up your elbow on a table, steady your hand, open the head, then nestle it against your lid. Gently and very slowly close it over your lash line and give it a few squeezes. Your lashes will look lifted and instantly longer, your eyes even bigger. $20; shu uemura-usa.com.

FALSE LASHES Ardell Individuals To really bat it out of the park, the right faux fringe matters. And this line—with a range of falsies from discreet clusters to dramatic strips— is the longtime obsession of makeup artists and beauty editors alike. While you can go big with an easily applied strip (“I love the invisible band that sits over your lash line,” which makes it nearly undetectable, says L.A. makeup artist Terri Apanasewicz), the brand is best known for these subtle individuals. “I put them on every client of mine,” says Louer, who adds that they “really look like your own lashes” (if your lashes were on steroids). The best way to apply? Dip the end of the

cluster into a dark lash glue, then place it gently along your lash line, nestling between your natural hairs. Finish by laying down dark eyeliner (for added coverage) and some mascara. $5; sallybeauty.com.

BROW PENCIL Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Whether you like your brows muscular or merely toned, ace your arches with the control and precision of this fine-tipped pencil. “You can really get between hairs and make brows look as thick as you want” with this gel fformula, says Lanoux. The pencil comes in nine shades, and the options for blond hair avoid the pitfall of skewing slightly greenish or grayish, she says. There are even options for difficult-to-match redheads (try the one called Auburn). $21; anastasia bev beverlyhills.com.

7R?RCKCLR 0GN /å LIPSTICK Nars Audacious Saturating with a single swipe, this year’s hero bullet wins hearts for its intense, gorgeous colors (“the 40-piece range is outrageous,” raves Bruce Grayson) and iits satin-matte i texture. “A lot of pigmented lipsticks can feel dry, but this one is soft and creamy,” says Daniel Chinchilla. That means it doesn’t emphasize flakes or fine lines around the mouth, says makeup artist Fabiola. Merci beaucoup, François Nars! $32; narscosmetics .com.

INEXPENSIVE LIPSTICK NYX Matte This lipstick isn’t just great for the price, it’s just great—period, end of story, says makeup artist Tamah Krinsky, who works with Elisabeth Moss. With this affordable cream, what you see is what you get. “The colors actually appear on lips exactly as they do in the tubes,” she says, adding that the formula packs staying power. It won’t run into fine lines around lips, even when you’re enveloped by heat and humidity. “I gift these to brides all the time,” says Krinsky. “The product never dries out on the mouth.” $6; nyxcosmetics.com.

ECO-FRIENDLY LIPSTICK BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Mineral-based products may be better for the environment, but with this winner, your lips will reap some benefits too. Containing Abyssinian oil and omega fatty acids, the creamy sticks hydrate your pout while delivering a satin finish that

218

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

feels as light as air, says Krinsky. The rich berry shades are the real draw. Take the rosy Get Ready, for instance: It is ultra-flattering on all skin tones thanks to its balance of cool and warm tones. $18; bareminerals.com.

Hall of Fame Winner LIP GLOSS Chanel Skimming right over the typical pitfalls of lip gloss (tacky, goopy formulas that stick to your hair like flies in honey), this shimmery standout delivers soft, sophisticated color with an elegant feel. It’s long-wearing and has light-reflecting particles that act like Swarovski crystals, illuminating lips while making them look plumper, says Johny Saade. Grayson concurs: “When someone wears this lip gloss, I can’t seem to look anywhere else.” The only problem we can see? Overattachment. All 32 hues, from iridescent opal to hot cocoa, are versatile editor faves. $30; chanel .com.

INEXPENSIVE LIP GLOSS NYX If gushing over reasonably priced lip gloss can sometimes make you feel like you’re back in high school, rest assured that this $5 find shouldn’t be relegated t school h to lockers. Not too sheer or garishly shiny, the 34 buttery shades “have strong pigments with just a bit of sheen,” says Krinsky, so you’ll feel fully grown-up and chic wearing them. Insider tip: Make like Krinsky and DIY a custom look by blending together hues (hey, with a bargain like this, it’s a lot easier to splurge and play makeup artist). $5; nyxcosmetics.com.

LIP CRAYON Nars With the ultimate flattering pinky nude for dark skin (Bahama) and a chameleon-like black orchid that looks uniquely beautiful on just about everyone (Train Bleu), this line offers a crayon “for all complexions, from espresso to porcelain,” says Kirin Bhatty. These pencils define lip lines and fill them with dense, velvety color. While the overall effect is matte, the texture isn’t dry or flaky. “They contain a bit of silicone, so the sticks glide on easily,” says Chinchilla. “You’ll get payoff that won’t look or feel cakey.” $26; narscosmetics.com.

LIP STAIN Benefit Benetint If you’ve had some goth-like experiences with other lip stains, remember that this makeup artist go-to

for long-lasting pouts creates a “beautiful, rosy, natural flush,” says Saade. Dab it on with fingers, concentrating the color at the center of your mouth for a diffused, on-trend effect. $30; benefitcosmetics.com.

LIP BALM La Mer Infused with the brand’s signature Miracle Broth (a mix of algae and antioxidants), this hydrating, nongreasy salve is nothing like its overly waxy progenitors: “You don’t have to apply a ton to get relief,” says Andre Sarmiento. Just one thin coating will keep your lips moisturized for hours. Makeup artists also swear by its prep prowess to zap flakes and create a smooth surface under dark, matte lipsticks. It’s the perfect canvas that makes any lip color look even better, says pro Elaine Offers. $55; lamer.com.

1?LG1MLB?ÿ 1SõQ BASE COAT Orly Bonder There’s nothing like a chip to make us lose our minds. Enter this rubberized, resin-based nail foundation, “made to grip the surface of nails and bond to the polish,” says N.Y.C. pro Alexaundra McCormick. The sticky solution also helps fill ridges and prevent staining, says N.Y.C. nail artist Cas Lamar, who works with Jennifer Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. $11; orlybeauty.com.

Hall of Fame Winner TOPCOAT Seche Vite Nail pros compare the glossy finish of this winning topcoat (which has appeared on our list 20 times!) to that of gel polish. This shine enhancer dries faster than most other traditional topcoats on the market, and according to Silver Spring, Md., manicurist Maisie Dunbar, it does more than just set the surface: You won’t get smears 30 minutes into your wear. The clear formula doesn’t streak when applied and will help you hang on to your floating-moon manicure for up to 10 days, says Lamar. $9; sallybeauty.com.

CUTICLE OIL Deborah Lippmann With coconut and jojoba oils plus vitamin E, this intense hydrator (housed in a user-friendly d b t dropper bottle) keeps skin supple and hangnails in check. Pros rave about its quick dry time and lack of sticky, film-like residue. They also recommend applying nightly

for best results. “Massaging the nail beds with cuticle oil may actually help nails grow in healthier,” says N.Y.C. pro Ami Vega. $20; deborah lippmann.com.

NAIL STRENGTHENER Duri Rejuvacote Nails brittle and weak after a string of punishing gel treatments? Brush on this ba base packed with calcium and keratin proteins to ward off cracking and snapping. Vega, who works with Kelly Ripa, also likes that it strikes the perfect balance, toughening tips “without leaving them extremely rigid.” $14; duri.com.

OVERALL BEST RED Dior Rouge It’s more than just a pretty bottle. “This shade is like a drug,” says Lamar of the hugely addictive and popular classic crimson that complements every skin tone—albeit in different ways. “On darker complexions it becomes brighter, more fiery; on lighter ones it looks deeper, and you more easily notice its blue base.” $27; dior.com.

OVERALL BEST BRIGHT China Glaze Sun of a Peach J Just as a shimmering, Orgasmic blush or juicy tangerine gloss can do, this lacquer breathes life into your complexion, says Dunbar. It offers plenty of energy and pop but doesn’t feel so trendy that you run the risk of shade fatigue as you might with a neon orange or a Minionesque yellow. $8; ulta.com.

Hall of Fame Winner OVERALL BEST DARK Essie Wicked Among beauty editors, this bordeaux is about as ubiquitous as Louboutin pumps. That’s beca That s because it gives instant polish (pun totally intended) to whatever you’re wearing. Plus, there’s warmth in the wine, meaning it won’t leave you with dreaded corpse hands, like some cool-toned, deep dark shades can. $9; essie.com.

OVERALL BEST NEUTRAL Deborah Lippmann Naked You’ve heard of no makeup makeup, right? no-makeup Well, this hue creates the same effortlessly chic effect

on your hands. “I can use this on someone with Lupita Nyong’o’s skin tone or on someone as fair as Nicole Kidman,” says McCormick. Adding just the right creamy trace of color, she says, this semi-sheer formula never skews too white. Is that why it’s usually plucked first from the rack at our local salon? $18; deborahlippmann.com.

POLISH REMOVER Zoya Talk about high praise: “I wouldn’t even mind if someone was removing their nail polish on the t i with ith this th stuff,” says train Lamar. Beyond its appealing floral scent, Zoya’s formula lifts off lacquers as well as acetone-based versions. “One swipe and you’re good to go,” says Lamar. And it leaves nails conditioned, not parched and rough. $10; zoya.com.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS SKIN

*íJNPíD7êL'?îC CLEANSER CeraVe Foaming This gentle giant won’t give you that squeaky-clean feeling—and that’s a good thing, says Hermosa Beach, Calif., dermatologist A i Chiu. Chi With Wit hyaluronic Annie acid (a molecule that helps your skin hold on to water), “this formula removes makeup and grime without stripping,” she says. In addition to supporting your all-important skin barrier with ceramides (a type of lipid that helps keep skin moisturized), the residue-free wash also contains niacinamide to fight inflammation and irritation. $12; walmart.com.

DAYTIME MOISTURIZER Aveeno Positively Radiant SPF 30 Here’s a one-two punch you’ll want to receive: The lotion delivers a respectably high SPF with a lightweight, non-sticky consistency consistency, says N.Y.C. dermatologist David Bank. The hydrator also addresses discoloration with soy, which “breaks up excess pigment in the skin,” says N.Y.C. dermatologist Rosemarie Ingleton. $15; drugstore.com.

NIGHT CREAM Origins NightA-Mins About as far from a heavy, floral-fragranced overnight cream as you can get, this citrusy pre-bedtime treat works to fight dullness with antioxidants like vitamins

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

C, E, and H. But it’s the salicylic acid in the mix, says Boston dermatologist Emmy Graber, that might be the biggest radiance booster, as it “sloughs off dead skin cells” to allow the moisturizing ingredients to penetrate better. Now you’re pretty much guaranteed to wake up on the “bright” side of the bed. $43; origins.com.

EYE TREATMENT Neocutis Lumière “This is your gold-star eye cream,” says Dr. Chiu of the frequent Best Beauty Buys winner. “Patients come i and d say th in thatt out of all the products they’ve bought, this is the one that works,” notes Dr. Bank. “You can see an improvement in fine lines, puffiness, and overall texture,” says San Diego dermatologist Melanie Palm. Need we say more? Fine. This gentle cream is loaded with active ingredients like growth factors and peptides to help firm up your face and help reduce the signs of sun damage in the long run. $90; lovelyskin.com.

SERUM SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Maybe you’ve heard that you should be using an antioxidant serum under your SPF. Well, that’s not a ploy to sell more skin serums. Those antioxidants ff an extra t layer of offer defense against free radicals, the cell-destroying molecules triggered by sun exposure. This formula rewards you for your diligence by softening the look of lines and fading brown spots over several

weeks. Says Dr. Ingleton, “With highly concentrated levels of vitamins C and E, it’s worth every penny.” $162; skinceuticals.com.

SCRUB First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Polish Not all scrubs are created equal: This creamy slougher is free of microbeads (tiny synthetic balls that pose a danger to marine life) and rough-edged abrasives. “The product contains pulverized shea-nut shells, which are soft, smooth, and safe for the environment,” says N.Y.C. dermatologist Joshua Zeichner. The finegrit formula also boasts willow-bark extract, which gently eliminates dead cells. Even many sensitive types can handle this polisher. $24; sephora.com.

MASK SK-II Facial Treatment In America, this was the very product that started the sheet-mask craze, says Dr. Chiu, who notes that this signature blend of sake yeast, vitamins, proteins, and minerals leaves the skin soft and more luminous with weekly use. Consider a session under the sheet before applying heavy makeup (it smooths the surface for a more even application) or after a plane flight to rehydrate. N.Y.C. dermatologist Michelle Henry recommends using them after a laser procedure to “baby that new, fresh skin.” $95/6 masks; sephora.com.

HAND CREAM L’Occitane Shea Butter It feels like buttah. Shea buttah, to be exact. But better smelling and less greasy too, says manicurist Ami Vega, who’s been reaching for this rich moisturizer for years. And its price breaks down to a pretty bargain given how just a “tiny, pea-size dot covers your entire hand,” she says. And the hydrating shield holds on, even after a vigorous hand washing during flu season. $28; usa.loccitane.com.

FOOT CREAM L’Occitane Shea Butter Why, hello again. This shea-butter base takes the prize for pampering stiletto-pinched feet too. If you’re as finicky as Goldilocks, our panelists say this item is sure to please: It’s not so light that it fails to soften and not so heavy that you “struggle to apply it,” says Vega. The blend, which also contains coconut oil and honey extract, leaves skin supple, hydrates hardened cuticles, and renders sandpaper soles and heels smooth. Use it during the day to cast a sheer, light-catching sheen, making your feet and calves look infinitely better in your gladiator sandals. At night, make like Vega and slather it on before bed, covering your feet with thick cotton (read: breathable) socks immediately after. This not only seals in precious moisture but also prevents you from an unexpected slip ’n’ slide during a midnight bathroom run. $28; usa .loccitane.com.

(Pÿ7êL7?JTCQ CLEANSER CeraVe Hydrating If your skin demands a gentle touch (and revolts with bouts of redness and irritation if it doesn’t get it), then open your cabinet to this hydrating version of the popular cleanser. The soap-free liquid “is great for compromised skin because it’s very soothing and has ceramides to help repair the skin barrier,” says Dr. Ingleton. The milky, lipid-based formula, says Dr. Bank, also seals cracks without leaving behind a gross, filmy residue. $12; drugstore.com.

DAYTIME MOISTURIZER CeraVe Sure, your skin needs moisture, but you don’t want to start the day feeling basted with grease. This formula skips the mineral oils (as well as the overly thick emollients) in favor of skin-sealing ceramides and water-attracting hyaluronic acid, says Dr. Bank. And while it shouldn’t tick off eczema-plagued users, doctors say any skin type could benefit from its fragrance-free moisture and physical sunscreen. $15; walmart.com.

NIGHT CREAM SkinMedica Dermal Repair This is one aggressive overachiever that won’t irritate your skin. The rich hydrator takes care of flakes and tight patches without feeling oily, and it fights lines

226

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

and dark spots with brightening vitamin C and collagen-boosting retinol, which helps skin look and feel firmer over time. “At night, the skin goes into increased repair mode, so it’s especially important to apply these ingredients and moisturizers before bed,” says Dr. Chiu. $129; skinmedica.com.

EYE TREATMENT Neocutis Lumière Riche When it comes to preventing crow’s-feet, “you have very little time to h thin skin spare”” since the around the orbital area has the least firming collagen and the “lowest threshold to damage,” says Dr. Bank. That means if you’re reading this, it’s time to adopt a formula like this emollient balm with its cocktail of circulation-boosting caffeine, hydrating glycerin, and wrinkle-fighting proteins. Not sold yet? “It can also be a base for makeup. Your foundation won’t slide off,” says Dr. Palm. $100; lovelyskin.com.

SERUM SkinMedica TNS Essential “I’ve used this lotion for five years, and I never keep products in rotation for that long,” says Dr. Chiu, who’s just one of the dermatologists we know who call this serum’s timereversing potion of peptides, antioxidants, and growth factors a true must-have for brightening and toning. The nutrient mix also helps replenish the surface of the skin, which is key to blocking out irritating elements. “This is my go-to,” echoes Smithtown, N.Y.,

dermatologist Marina Peredo. “It’s addictive. My patients say they always notice a difference in just one week.” $281; skinmedica.com.

hydrates the skin. The only problem? It smells like a pâtisserie, so you might find yourself craving a French lace cookie after your shower. $62; fresh.com.

SCRUB Fresh Sugar Face Polish We know ki iis parched—and h d the your skin last thing you probably want to do right now is scrub it. But underneath that dry surface lies a softer, more supple texture. To unearth it, you need to use an exfoliator with hydrating properties, like this saccharine scrub, says Boston dermatologist Ranella Hirsch. The sugar gently dislodges dead cells, while the macadamia oil—and the sugar granules themselves–

MASK Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating This rich Thi i h P.M.-specific product hydrates dry skin like a boss, but it’s the moisture magnet hyaluronic acid and the lesser-known Ophiopogon japonicus (a plant extract) that help absorb and hold water in the skin. Translation: It plumps. After using it you can spy softer, less visible lines and creases, says N.Y.C. dermatologist Anthony Rossi. $35; kiehls.com.

EDITOR’S PICK OIL PRIMER Smashbox Photo Finish

“Yes, there are plenty of siliconeladen versions that even out the skin, but this silky blend of argan, jojoba, and essential oils smooths by deeply hydrating and temporarily softening the look of fine lines.” —ANGELIQUE SERRANO, BEAUTY DIRECTOR $42.

3GJÿ7êL7?TGMîQ CLEANSER Garnier SkinActive Clean & Shine Control If you’re wondering why so many of the products in the skin-care aisle have suddenly turned black, it’s because charcoal is in the mix. The ingredient has the power to pull grime from your pores and sop up grease, elevating this cleanser to blemishbuster status. The gel washes away and leaves a semimatte finish and a cool, fresh feeling with a dose of menthol. $8; at drugstores.

DAYTIME MOISTURIZER WITH SPF Elta MD UV Clear Dr. Palm’s prescription for acne patients isn’t complete without a notice to use this SPF cream every day. The oil-free formula (available in a tinted and untinted version) won’t clog your pores or bring on a breakout, she says. And the niacinamide helps take down inflammation and ward off dark spots (which can follow bouts of inflammation). Don’t think all that anti-blemish insurance comes at the cost of serious sun protection: Once blended in, the micronized zinc leaves no cast. $32; eltamd.com.

NIGHT CREAM SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight Oily If you imagine that applying a layer of night cream feels as good as slathering on a coat of Crisco before bed, let this

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

lightweight gel-cream blow your mind. It sinks in fast, leaving no tacky residue, and it even packs AHAs (alphahydroxy acids) to eliminate pore-clogging dead skin cells, says Dr. Palm. And before you fall back on the misconception that your oily skin doesn’t need a nighttime moisturizer, remember that the drier your skin is, the more oil it’s going to produce on its own. $61; skinceuticals.com.

EYE TREATMENT Clinique All About Eyes Serum You already may be dealing with oily, breakout-prone skin. You don’t want to wake up one day with oily, breakout-prone skin and crepe papery undereyes, do you? Tackle the early signs of aging—even if you’re still fending off acne on your T-zone—with a cooling antioxidant serum like this one. Housed in a roller-ball applicator, the sheer formula is oil-free and full of caffeine to help increase circulation. (By upping circulation, you’ll help get blood moving under the skin so it doesn’t pool and create shadows.) It feels refreshing all on its own, but we recommend storing this stick in the refrigerator. The cold temperature will constrict blood vessels and take down the puff in minutes. $30; clinique.com.

SERUM SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF If the only things more dispiriting than your adult breakouts are the dark marks of acne past, this serum can brighten things up. Literally. The fformula’s l ’ vitamin i C helps fade old spots, says Dr. Palm, while antioxidants phloretin and ferulic acid prevent future damage by attacking

cell-damaging free radicals produced by sun exposure. And all this without plugging pores. Impressive. $162; skinceuticals.com.

SCRUB Murad If you’ve got acne issues, we’re willing to bet our Blahniks that you’ve heard of this product. The smooth scrub packs witch hazel plus jojoba beads. “With their smooth edges, the beads exfoliate without causing trauma on a micro level—a very good thing,” says Dr. Hirsch. It also contains antioxidant-rich oils, like pomegranate and sunflower seed. $30; murad.com.

MASK Origins Active Charcoal Ready to get down and dirty? This mask, which can also be used as a spot treatment, relies on charcoal to i get into pores and clean out debris and excess sebum. Use it twice a week and you can see less shine and fewer gaping pores staring back at you. And it won’t leave your skin feeling tight and itchy upon removal. “Using it can actually be a pleasant experience,” says Dr. Palm. $26; origins.com.

TONER Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel It’s an oldie but a goodie: The gentle, all-natural liquid (which does the trick with just two ingredients:

witch hazel and naturally derived alcohol) doesn’t sting while sapping sweat and oil. We even like to dab it on lightly with a cotton ball midday to help degrease our complexions without dulling our glow (or disturbing our perfectly sculpted contouring job). $6; dickinsonsusa.com.

SPOT TREATMENT Neutrogena On-theSpot How would you describe your breakouts? Are they characterized b a couple co ple of baby bumps by that disappear in a few days? Or are they angry patches of raised zits that take up serious real estate? If you picked the latter, you need to get your hands on this little tube. The cream inside packs 2.5 percent benzoyl peroxide, the power hitter in the anti-acne game. “Just a dot over each spot can help reduce inflammation and the size of pimples in a day or two,” says Dr. Palm. $7; neutrogena.com.

ACNE TREATMENT La RochePosay Effaclar Duo If breakouts are a full-face problem, as opposed to, say, a T-zone or chin-specific issue, then you’re going to want to work this zit zapper into your routine. (Try wearing it under your sunscreen and makeup.) With its benzoyl peroxide for taking down pimples and lipohydroxy acid for exfoliating and flushing out pores, Dr. Palm calls it an anti-inflammatory formula that you can reach for on the daily. $37; laroche-posay.us.

7SNCPAF?PECB %L÷%ECPQ WRINKLE TREATMENT SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum Are you familiar with the saying “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone”? Don’t let it apply to your bright, youthful skin. This much-heralded serum makes “more mature skin cells behave like young, healthy ones to improve the overall texture and tone,” says Dr. Zeichner. The key to this dermatological voodoo? A formula that, unlike the ones in some other equally pricey products out there, has a proven track record of spurring collagen production with the use of growth factors, says Dr. Zeichner. $281; skinmedica.com.

INEXPENSIVE WRINKLE TREATMENT Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum Can your love affair with retinol be best described as on-again, off-again? Dermatologists say this over-the-counter cream can help you stick with the ingredient, which is essential to addressing fine lines and sun damage. “Many people find it irritating at first,” explains Dr. Chiu. But the gentle formula, which doesn’t blast your skin with a highly concentrated dose of retinol at once, can help mitigate that, she says. With dryness and redness under control, moisture-drawing hyaluronic acid can do its work of plumping up lines in the short term, while the retinol builds collagen in the long term. $22; neutrogena.com.

EXFOLIATOR ProX by Olay Micro Peel

EYE TREATMENT Garnier SkinActive Renew Eye Roller For some of us, it’s going to take a lot more than a cucumber to get rid of undereye baggage. This tool checks all the boxes: It has a cooling metal tip, which you can massage around the eyes to get blood flowing. The formula packs caffeine to stimulate circulation and decrease puff as well as glycerin to moisturize. And applying it feels like a therapeutic treat—so you’ll actually want to whip it out in the morning (and at night and lunchtime) and get rolling. $13; at drugstores.

DISCOLORATION TREATMENT SkinMedica Lytera If your total obsession with emerging creases and wrinkles has caused you to overlook the equally aging sun spots that have cropped up on your nose and cheeks, this brightener can help you play catch-up in the pigment-reduction department. Fully explaining how it works would make a compelling high school science project for a budding dermatologist, but here’s the short version: Retinol “promotes the exfoliation of surface pigment, while antioxidant vitamin C decreases the formation of pigment in the first place,” says Dr. Chiu. “And niacinamide cuts down on the production of pigment that stems from inflammation.” $130; skinmedica.com.

AT-HOME PEEL Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Talk about sneaky. While you think you’re giving skin a good slough, this peel pad is also depositing ingredients to address a laundry list of anti-aging concerns: collagen production, excess pigmentation, and inflammation. Not that you care—you’re too busy getting a glow by removing those old skin cells with the peel’s “perfect, nonirritating mix of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids,” says Dr. Bank. $88/30; drdennisgross.com.

Do scratchy scrubs leave you splotchy and raw? Ditch the harsh physical exfoliators (commonly packed with nut shells and beads) and go for a light daily chemical exfoliator. This one boasts a trio of glycolic, citric, and lactic acids to disintegrate dull, dead skin cells and make way for a fresher complexion. “After just one week you will see more radiant skin,” says West Islip, N.Y., dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla. And because it has glycerin in it, you can use it during a Minnesota winter and know you’re getting some bonus hydration too. $40; olay.com.

HAIRREMOVAL DEVICE Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X

If you asked every beauty editor to go home and take a bathroom shelfie, you’d spot this facial brush in everyone’s pic. The sonic-powered tool clears away makeup and urban grime “far more effectively than your hands can,” says Dr. Palm. And don’t be nervous about how your skin will react to the rub of an oscillating brush that makes hundreds of movements per second: There is a wide selection of treatment heads, including a supremely soft cashmere one, as well as four speed modes, so you can use it even if you have sensitive skin or mild acne, says Dr. Palm. $265; clarisonic.com.

If your facial hair is dark and highly visible against your skin, well, it’s it s your lucky day day. You may be the perfect candidate for this tool, a lower-energy version of the diode lasers found in doctors’ offices. It responds best on people with light to medium skin tones and brown to black hair. Dr. Nazarian purchased one for herself and found it “amazing for an at-home device.” Use it to tackle peach fuzz on the face, as well as leg hair, and you’ll discover that it offers a difference within a few weeks, she says. $449; triabeauty.com.

ZIT ZAPPER Tria Acne Clearing Blue Light Sit back, relax, fire up an episode of Outlander on your DVR—then fire up this handheld blue light. Safe even during pregnancy, the device can be used for two and a half minutes twice a day. When it’s aimed over pimples, the wavelength from the device “reaches deeper into the skin than topical products can” to destroy the bacteriacausing zits, says N.Y.C. dermatologist Rachel Nazarian. “You should start to notice fewer breakouts in a couple of months,” says Dr. Nazarian. $299; tria beauty.com.

MICRODERMABRASION DEVICE PMD Personal Microderm If your scrubs aren’t delivering much by way of a glow, flip on this device. The tip—a spinning disc made of aluminum oxide crystals— performs the pore excavation that Dr. Henry says she often does in her office with needles. But don’t worry: This super-exfoliator can work for all skin types, she says. With a vacuum function that can increase circulation and suck up deep-down dirt while the disc polishes, the device opens up pathways, allowing any topical product to penetrate and be more effective. It makes “skin appear more clear and luminous, and can even diminish the appearance of pore size,” adds Dr. Chiu. $159; getpmd.com.

WRINKLE LASER Tria AgeDefying Laser It wasn’t so long ago that the idea of using lasers to zap away wrinkles would have been the stuff of a J.J. Abrams project. Rest assured, this Tria laser is a modern-day wonder, says Dr. Bank. The wireless tool is easy to use. Simply run the head over the surface of your

face (which can take two or 10 minutes, depending on your treatment). “It delivers a low wavelength frequency and low energy, so you don’t need to worry about hurting yourself,” says Dr. Bank. While painless, those beams get down into your skin, prompting cells to produce more collagen so it can appear plumper and firmer over time. Make it part of your anti-aging regimen, he says, “to stimulate cell turnover and restore luminosity to your complexion.” For best results, a treatment five days a week for 12 weeks is recommended. $495; triabeauty.com.

&JGôDSJ &MBÿ8PC?RKCLöQ BODY MOISTURIZER Clinique Body Butter Inside this tub you’ll find a virtual treasure trove of rich, luxurious ingredients. It’s dense with powerhouse moisturizers like shea butter and glycerin to give skin a soft, supple feel, and vitamin E offers antioxidant protection. When the mercury dips and you’re really feeling dry, you can try this editor trick: Spike your daily dose with a few drops of oil, like argan or coconut, for a doubly decadent (and reparative) sensorial delight. $30; clinique.com.

BODYWASH Dove Deep Moisture Have you been relying on your body lotion to mend all the rough patches? Then you’re not addressing what could be causing them in the first place: hot showers. When you make them a daily habit, you can strip your skin and break down the moisture barrier, says Dr. Nazarian. And we all know that it’s a lot easier to prevent cracks than to seal them up. Enter this bodywash, which restores moisture while it cleanses away dirt and grime. “I even use it as a shaving cream,” says Dr. Nazarian. $7; at drugstores.

BODY SCRUB JJosie Maran By nature, body scrubs tend to be a study in contrast (exfoliating granules

suspended in hydrating oils). But this one gets the balance just right. “It doesn’t have excess oil, so the product shouldn’t cause you to slip in the shower,” notes Dr. Henry. On the flip side, these sugar granules “slough skin without causing damage.” And the subtle scent of citrus in the argan-oil confection sends us straight to our happy place. $38; sephora.com.

BODY OIL Neutrogena You’d be hard-pressed to find a person who doesn’t love this cult classic. The silky (yet fastabsorbing) texture, faintly floral scent, and repairing benefits of this oil are just three reasons we’re enamored. The hydrator sinks in and dries quickly, even when applied from neck to toes—which ideally should be done right after a shower to seal in moisture, says Dr. Palm. The sesame-oil mix also provides antioxidant vitamin E. $9/8.5 fl. oz.; neutrogena.com.

DEODORANT Dove Clinical Protection Antiperspirant The next time you’re standing in front of a massive deodorant lineup at your local grocery store, consider more than just your favorite scent. This stick is doctor-recommended for blocking odor and wetness while delivering skin-soothing ingredients, Dr. Chiu says. Essential among those, she says, is sunflower-seed oil. “Its moisturizing and antiinflammatory properties really work to minimize irritation.” $8; at drugstores.

RAZOR Gillette Venus Swirl Are you guilty of shopping in the guys’ section to score a sharp, pivoting-head razor? Then call off the search and lay claim to this “awesome” tool, which Dr. Graber says “easily moves around ankles and knees so it gets every hair without causing nicks or cuts.” $10; drugstore.com.

SHAVING CREAM Aveeno Therapeutic “There are a lot of things I love about this cream,” says Dr. Graber. It serves as a hydrating layer that smooths the way for your razor. But even better,

the product prevents itchy irritation with oatmeal and aloe while also moisturizing with glycerin. And instead of clogging and catching between your blades (like thick, milky formulas can), this blend rinses off without gumming things up. $4; drugstore.com.

BAR SOAP Dove White Beauty Bar “Dove got it right decades ago, and that’s why this product keeps winning,” says Dr. Graber of the familiar white bar that does away with dirt while moisturizing at the same time. The trick, doctors say, is all in the pH level. “Many soaps tend to have a high pH, which can disrupt the surface and its natural moisture barrier, leading to inflammation and that dry, tight feeling,” says Dr. Zeichner. “This one cleanses without stripping the skin.” $4/2; at drugstores.

“Light and silkyy, this coconutt oil can softeen skin, gloss eve veen the finest haairr, and tackle what’s left off last night’s smoky eyes.”” —DIANNA MAZZONE, ASSISTANT BEAUTY EDITOR E R $44. Go to instyle.com/bbbpicks for discount from April 15 to May 12.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS BODY

7SL@JMÚ Ā +JMU &íõCPQ BODY SUNSCREEN Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch “It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing sunscreen” is just about the biggest compliment you can pay to a sunscreen. And that’s exactly what Dr. Graber says about this sheer, fast-absorbing formula. You’ll get a comfortable, dry-touch matte finish, plus top-notch protection against UVA and UVB rays. “It’s broadspectrum, so it shields the body from those aging, damaging rays,” explains Dr. Graber. $10; neutrogena.com.

SPORT SUNSCREEN Elta MD UV Sport SPF 50 While the stellar protection (9 percent zinc oxide, which is “even superior to titanium dioxide,” says Dr. Palm) sets this formula apart in the category of best water-resistant SPF, its clean finish helps hoist it into the top spot. It spreads easily and is transparent so you can avoid that pasty or chalky look. And it won’t run off while you’re sweating either, says Dr. Nazarian, who adds that the SPF occupies a permanent place in her beach bag. $22; eltamd.com.

FACIAL SUNSCREEN Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 In a world crammed full of beauty hybrids (BBs, CCs, EEs—we could go on), let us explain this multitalented pick: It’s a broadspectrum sunscreen. And moisturizer. And primer. The

236

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

lotion (which comes in a tinted and untinted version) is lightweight and nonsticky, and it has both physical protection (to prevent rays from penetrating skin) as well as chemical blockers (which absorb and then scatter UV rays) to fight everything from skin cancer to hyperpigmentation. And it won’t feel slick under makeup. “This formula really raises the bar,” says Dr. Chiu. It’s not oppressive, and it promotes the health of your skin, she says. $32; eltamd.com.

OIL-FREE FACIAL SUNSCREEN Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46 Tell your inner skeptic (the one who feels a breakout coming on at the mere mention of the word “oil”) to chill out. This is an oil-free formula—and it says “clear” on the label for a reason: “It’s invisible, even on the darkest skin tone, and yet it contains 9 percent zinc. That’s unbelievable!” says Dr. Ingleton. And while it’s got your SPF handled, this fixer also helps keep blemishes and spots at bay with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. “This is my go-to for acne patients,” says Dr. Bank. $32; eltamd.com.

MINERAL FACIAL SUNSCREEN Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 50 You know how you’re supposed to touch up your sunscreen every couple of hours? Here’s a winner that’ll actually make that often “forgotten” task easy to do. With SPF 50 powder loaded into this portable brush, you

can reapply faster than you can say “mineral-based broad-spectrum protection.” Dr. Palm says, “I get men and women alike to use this product,” adding that you can choose one of four shades to work into your complexion. $64; colorescience.com.

SELFTANNER FOR FACE Clarins Intense If the “intense” part of the name makes you nervous, keep calm and slather on. With this fast-acting lotion you get more ki d glow than an off a sun-kissed artificial tint. With dihydroxyacetone, an ingredient that prompts pigment development in the upper layers of skin, this liquid is also tinted so you get an immediate payoff (and a deeper radiance develops within a few hours). The transformation is so subtle, you can do multiple applications

to reach your desired effect, says makeup artist Yolonda Frederick-Thompson. $38; clarins.com.

SELF-TANNER FOR BODY St Tropez Bronzing Mousse To quote several makeup artists, this dihydroxyacetonepowered mousse glides on streakfree without a lot of effort or mess (thanks in part to a complimentary applicator mitt) and creates a natural-looking glow in the short and long term. The temporary bronzer delivers on the spot; the DHA produces a tan within hours that can last for several days. The only caveat in the mix? “You have to make sure that your skin isn’t dry before applying,” says Fabiola. “I spray legs with water, then apply a moisturizing lotion. After that, the solution goes on easier and looks more even.” $42; sephora.com.

EDITOR’S PICK MULTITASKING SPF La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blurr

“The best sunscreen is the one you’ll actually wear. This lotion has bonus benefits: It plays down pores and lines.” —ANGELIQUE SERRANO, BEAUTY DIRECTOR $30. Go to instyle.com/bbbpicks for discount from April 15 to May 12.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS HAIR

-L7FMUCP4MUCP'MSNJCQ FOR NORMAL HAIR Oribe Signature We love how chic these shiny, sculptural containers look perched in our showers—but it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? In that case, the formulas are equally magical, says N.Y.C. stylist Nathaniel Hawkins, noting that the duo targets problems from dryness to frizz on a range of textures. It’s got gentle coconut and cornderived cleansers and keratin-based strengtheners, but as the suds build, the only thing you’ll likely notice is the woodsy, citrus-tinged fragrance. It’s sublime. $39 each; oribe.com.

INEXPENSIVE FOR NORMAL HAIR Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal We’ve been known to alternate our pricey shampooand-conditioner combo with a great drugstore pairing, but this set is so good, you may just want to commit. The cleanser, says N.Y.C. stylist Lacy Redway, won’t dry out color- or chemically treated hair. Redway also loves how the conditioner moisturizes without making hair greasy. With silicones to bring softness and slip, these two are a no-brainer to help bring your frayed ends back from the brink. $5 each; pantene.com.

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

FOR DRY HAIR Kérastase Nutritive Bain Satin 1/Lait Vital Your strands are rough and dry, but your roots seem to collect oil faster than a Bounty sheet. Sound familiar? If so, this superhydrating pair could be your winning compromise. Packed with amino acids, they’ll keep strands clean and strong without robbing them of moisture. “It’s like instant gratification in a bottle,” raves N.Y.C. stylist Chris Lospalluto, who works with Lana Del Rey. “Even after just one wash, my clients with curly or very dry hair can see and feel a difference.” $40/$42; kerastase-usa.com.

FOR FRIZZY HAIR Living Proof No Frizz These humidity blockers can help fend off frizz right out of the shower—before you’ve loaded up on serums and smoothing spritzers. And unlike some silicone-based tamers, “the formulas won’t build up and leave a residue,” says Lospalluto. To all of you fine-haired friends, fear not: The word “flat” won’t spring to mind after you lather, rinse, and blow-dry. $25 each; livingproof.com.

FOR CURLY HAIR DevaCurl No-Poo Whether you consider your curls practically self-sufficient or somewhat highmaintenance, this all-in-one cleanser and conditioner can make coaxing them to bendy perfection so much easier. Just massage in the non-lathering formula, then rinse; the

sulfate- and silicone-free product cleanses and hydrates (with grape-seed and peppermint oils) without riling up cuticles. “It doesn’t strip natural oils from the hair, making strands less likely to frizz,” says L.A. stylist Christophe Saluzzo, who works with Connie Britton and Kate Walsh. Try it on fine or coarse textures, says L.A. pro Michael Dueñas, who’s been known to use it as a styling product too. $20; devacurl.com.

FOR BRITTLE HAIR Carol’s Daughter Monoi N.Y.C. stylist Chuck Amos is most convincing about the strand-formative powers of this shampoo and conditioner when he talks about the strengthening miracles they’ve performed on one of his VIP clients: his mom. “She had so much breakage before using these two,” he says. “Now, after a year, her hair is so much fuller and thicker.” The key ingredient is monoi oil, but the highly moisturizing formulas also “rinse out clean and don’t leave hair greasy.” $18/$20; carolsdaughter.com.

FOR FINE HAIR Oribe Magnificent Volume While the sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner do wonders to beef up strands, they won’t make them straw-like in the process (a danger with volumizing cleansers, in particular). “If a client is looking for body, I always prep with these before a blowout,” says

Dueñas, who works with Padma Lakshmi. “They’re liquid miracles that leave hair shiny and supple but not weighed down.” $39 each; oribe.com.

FOR COLORTREATED HAIR Oribe Beautiful Color J Just like you wouldn’t throw your pleated midiskirt into the spin cycle, you’d never shampoo pricey highlights with anything but a color-preserving shampoo. (Right?) The only problem is, brands that score well on the colorpreservation meter might sometimes get lower marks in other areas, like cleansing or strengthening. Not with this luxe pair: The formulas fight fading with edelweiss extract and battle oxidation with watermelon extract, they wash clean away, and “when you rinse these out, the hair doesn’t feel brittle—it feels flexible and healthy,” Amos says. $42/$44; oribe.com.

ECOFRIENDLY LINE Aveda Shampure We’ve long loved the comforting, herbaceous aroma of these two lock stars. “It’s what I imagine the most beautiful place on earth would smell like,” says Hawkins. But these proteinpacked, rosemaryspiked classics also deliver strength and body, feats other eco-blends don’t always pull off so well, says Hawkins, who works wi with Adele and Uma Thurman. $14 each; aveda.com.


BEST BEAUTY BUYS HAIR

CURL DEFINER Oribe Curl Gloss Hydration & Hold Boosting hydration and beating frizz, this gel-like shaper avoids the bane of every spiral glosser: the crunch factor. “It defines curls but keeps them soft,” says N.Y.C. hairstylist Gregorio Ruggeri. If you have fine strands, apply no more than a quarter-size amount before blow-drying with a diffuser. Then shake strands (never run your fingers through them) for the perkiest results. $37; oribe.com.

Hall of Fame Winner HAIRSPRAY L’Oréal Elnett Satin While it’s set many a red-carpet chignon, this spray is also essential for things like Kate Bosworth’s boho waves, says her hairstylist, L.A.’s Bridget Brager. “The nozzle releases a really fine, even mist,” she says. “And it never gets t crunchy. You can apply it, then brush through strands and your hair will still have amazing hold.” $15; lorealparisusa.com.

WAVE ENHANCER Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray Short of a sunset cruise on a catamaran, nothing speeds up the hunt for f beach b h waves like this ocean spray. It adds just the right briny texture with its “perfect balance of salt and water,” says Christophe Saluzzo. Start slow and build up to your desired look. And since it can be used on wet or dry hair, you may want to stock up two bottles at a time. $27; bumbleandbumble.com.

240

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

Hall of Fame Winner VOLUMIZER Phyto PhytoVolume Actif With their traditionally high alcohol content, many volumizers can leave hair stiff (or worse, contribute to dryness and flaking). Not this instant root lifter. When applied to two-day-old hair, Brager says, it’s the world’s easiest shortcut to a “disheveled cool-girl style.” For a bouncier blowout, spritz it onto damp strands: “Don’t just get it onto your roots but all over since it won’t make hair piecey or limp,” says Michael Dueñas. $30; ulta.com.

STYLING CREAM Leonor Greyl Éclat Naturel Pros can reach for this cream to style pixies, layered lobs, and Old Hollywood waves alike. “It gives perfect hold,” says Brager, who uses it over Jenna Dewan Tatum’s waves. “It adds texture without weight,” says Chris Lospalluto. Other experts swear it’s best as a moisturizing coat over fraying ends. But no matter how you handle the cream, remember to skim the surface of strands rather than saturate them: “A little bit goes a long way,” says Lospalluto. $46; saks.com.

SHINE PRODUCT Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray This silicone-free mist can work its light-reflecting, flyaway-foiling magic on every hair type, says Lacy Redway, who’s used it on stars like Lupita Nyong’o and Olivia Palermo. Fine hair needs a delicate application of the argan-oil-infused formula; just spray it into the air in front of

you, then quickly walk through the citrus-scented cloud, Saluzzo suggests. $39; oribe.com.

DRY SHAMPOO Klorane If you’re wise to the powers of dry shampoos (like absorbing excess oils and extending the life of a blowout), you know that not all versions pull the same weight. This dust disappears after you gently rub or brush it through strands. “It produces fresh, clean roots, and if you apply a few pumps, also a touch of body,” says Lospalluto, who adds that he uses the oat-milk blend on all his clients. $20; klorane.com.

POMADE Oribe Fiber Groom Think your long strands and this rich-looking pomade won’t play well together? Rub a little into your hair before your next

blowout: You’ll marvel at the “control and smoothness” you achieve, says Ruggeri. Of course, it works in more expected ways too. Redway reaches for a dime-size amount of the polymer-filled paste to add hold. “I also run it through loose ends for a cool, deconstructed finish.” $34; oribe.com.

SINGLEPROCESS COLOR Clairol Nice ’n Easy “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” quips Redway about this single-process classic, which still pleases stylists and clients alike with its shiny finish and ability to cover stubborn grays. Dueñas recommends it to clients who don’t have time for a touch-up at the salon. “It gives professional results,” he says, noting that it avoids problems that usually crop up with at-home hair kits, like “hot roots,” where color looks lighter up top. $8; clairol.com.

EDITOR’S PICK SPLIT-END MENDER Rita Hazan Triple Threat

“When a trim is buried on your to-do list, this serum packs polymers to temporarily seal frayed tips.” —SHERYL GEORGE, BEAUTY EDITOR $30. Go to instyle.com/bbbpicks for discount from April 15 to May 12.

BEST BEAUTY BUYS HAIR

&Mô ,?GP8íJQ BLOWDRYER Harry Josh If you obsessively follow beauty pros and redcarpet regulars, then we know you’ve spotted this mint green mini all over your social feeds. When time is money, speed is king. “You can dry even the coarsest sections of hair quickly with a few passes of air from this tool,” says Chuck Amos, who has used it on Uzo Aduba’s hair, among others’. Try flipping on the ion function to further help smooth strands, says Nathaniel Hawkins. $300; dermstore.com.

INEXPENSIVE BLOWDRYER Infinity Pro by Conair Its price tag can save you a few bucks—or a hundred of them (hair-dryer sticker shock: It happens). The tool gets superhot and has powerful airflow, notes Bridget Brager. And it produces the results you get from a professional machine, says Christophe Saluzzo. His tip? Use the nozzle to direct the stream when you want to work by sections (which you should do to get the smoothest, sleekest styles). $40; target.com.

ECOFRIENDLY BLOWDRYER Parlux 3800 Sure, air-drying might fly sometimes, like when you’re on vacation. But for those times when you need to whip out the power tools, this crazy-strong dryer

242

I n S T Y L E M AY 2 0 1 6

will work fast—and do so without driving up your electric bill, says Chris Lospalluto. It also emits negative ions to help zap frizz and flyaways. $229; birthofbeauty.com.

CURLING IRON Hot Tools 1 Inch “If I had to pick one hair tool to have for the rest of my life, this would be it,” says Michael Dueñas, who works with Morena Baccarin. Not only does the gold-plated, fast-heating, durable iron reach over 400 degrees and deliver lasting curls, but the 1-inch barrel gives you the versatility to create everything from loose waves to classic, roller-like sets, “depending on how you wrap and hold the hair,” he says. (We hold the iron vertically and then wind chunky sections around it—omitting the ends—to get those tousled, Alexa Chung–like bends.) $50; ulta.com.

CURLING WAND GHD Curve Classic Wave Two distinct details make this a stylist favorite: its even heat distribution and the uniquely oval shape of its wand. Together, they allow you to heat the length of your hair uniformly instead of just scorching the center. And the barrel excels at creating loose waves, not precisely rounded curls. So if you crave that bouncy Victoria’s Secret Angel look, this is a godsend, says L.A. pro Craig Gangi, who works with Anna Kendrick. $199; sephora.com.

FLATIRON GHD Platinum Styler Feeding flatiron addictions across the country, this plug-in heats up evenly to 365 degrees and slips through your strands for a salon finish. The secret here is in the plates—they’re cushioned with a ceramic finish that promotes a smooth glide and helps prevent snagging, but they maintain just enough tension to completely transform your texture. Another feature we love: the sleep mode, which means if you forget to turn it off before you run out the door, it’ll power down on its own after 30 minutes. $249; sephora.com.

Hall of Fame Winner PADDLE BRUSH Mason Pearson It’s the brush you wish someone would wrap up and give you for your birthday. Since that probably hasn’t happened yet, stylists such as L R d Lacy Redway promise this luxe classic (which has won our Best Beauty Buys award 14 times) is worth your considerable investment—and not just for its price-per-use ratio. The boar and nylon bristles slip through hair, distributing oils from the roots down to drier ends. Dueñas recommends spritzing the brush with hairspray to lend an even finish and staying power to freshly curled waves. It makes the hair look like glass, he says. Our fine-haired beauty editor, whose strands snag with the

slightest breeze, swears it’s one of the only tools that can detangle her hair without prompting tears. $205; neimanmarcus.com.

ROUND BRUSH Ibiza Hair G4 Trying to style hair with the wrong brush is like trying to cut steak with a butter knife: It doesn’t work. This round brush—a stylist-decreed top tool— expertly lifts up hair at the roots to “I use this t build b ild iin volume. l every day to deliver my blowouts,” says Gangi. “Its boar bristles help get rid of frizz,” and with a feel-good easy-grip handle, it creates tension in the hair, which is key for smoothing, as well as curling the ends, during a blow-dry. $42; ibizahair.com.

ECOFRIENDLY HAIRBRUSH Olivia Garden Healthy Hair Large Paddle With this vanity-worthy brush, what’s good for the environment turns out to be bliss for your hair: The tool is made of bamboo (a renewable resource) and is light and comfortable to maneuver. And if you feel like taking on an extra five minutes to brush your hair, the roundtipped bristles can deliver a stimulating scalp massage while they easily “slide through strands and detangle,” says Amos. Use it on damp hair to comb through strands while you blow-dry (it’ll speed up the job). $22; ulta.com.

Stop sucking it in: Net-a-Porter buyer Maria W Williams tells you how to play up or play down certtain areas with a few simple p silhouette tricks.



7FMN RFC 7F?NC=MS;?LR

MINIMIZE BUTT AND THIGHS Avoid full-coverage and short-style bottoms. Instead, pull the eye upward with plunging or ruďŹ&#x201E;ed necklines.

DISGUISE A TUMMY A ruched waist and strategically placed seams can more than make up for untoned abs. Or go for a tankini.

ELONGATE LEGS Channel your inner â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s supermodel (hi, Cindy) with styles cut on the hip bone.

DOWNPLAY BROAD SHOULDERS Side cutouts can soften an athletic upper body by faking curves, while asymmetrical tops do so by breaking up the neckline. Twist one-piece, Mara HoďŹ&#x20AC;man, $238; marahoďŹ&#x20AC;man.com. Bikini top ($143) and bottom ($136), Marysia; marysiaswim.com.

ELIMINATE MUFFIN TOP/BULGES Opt for a high-waist two-piece that hits at or above the navel, or look for a one-piece with gathering over the areas youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to gloss over. Bikini top ($215) and bottom ($155), Araks; araks .com. Maillot, Gottex, $128; bloomingdales.com.

A?ĂŻRQ

THE AMOUNT OF DIAMONDS THAT JEWELRY DESIGNER SUSAN ROSEN USED TO MAKE THE MOST EXPENSIVE BIKINI IN THE WORLD, ESTIMATED AT $30 MILLION

WHY THE FABRIC MATTERS Not all materials are created equal. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re swimming 200 laps a day or just longweekending in Miami, check the tag before you buy.

LYCRA Historically, suits made of this smoothing and sculpting fabric (also known as spandex or elastane) havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoyed the longest life spans, lasting up to just six months for frequent swimmers. A newer version, called Xtra Life Lycra, protects against chlorine, sunscreen, and heat, promising to last 10 times longer.

CREATE BOOBS Try good old-fashioned padding. Patterned and embellished tops also give the illusion of more up there. Bikini top ($49) and bottom ($24), Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Secret; victoriassecret.com.

Maillot, Heidi Klein $256; available May 1 at heidiklein.com. Bikini top ($69) and bottom ($38), Panache Swim; barenecessities.com. Available in sizes up to 38G and XXXL.

ENHANCE A FLAT BUTT Choose a cut that shows a little cheek. Frills on the back can make a small bum look larger too. Bikini top ($79) and bottom ($75), Lolli Swim; ilovelolli.com.

NYLON Strong, lightweight, and quick-drying, nylon is found in most non-polyester swimwear, often blended with Lycra to give it a bit more elasticity. The only drawbacks? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as colorfast or as ďŹ&#x201A;exible as its water-friendly peers. POLYESTER While less stretchy and comfortable than Lycra swimwear, polyester can withstand years of heavy use, making it a popular choice for serious swimmers. Oh, and hey: If a suit is 100 percent poly, go up a size.

THEN

Mid-1800s Cumbersome full-length dresses limit women to only wading, not swimming, in the water. To keep legs covered, skirts are weighted down with lead, and bloomers and stockings are worn underneath.

NOW

2010s Ladylike elegance returns to the beach, with 1950s-era silhouettes, favored by trendsetters like Taylor Swift, making an unexpected comeback alongside more modern styles featuring ruffled or scalloped necklines.

1900s Bathing costumes lighten up—a little. The popular princess style, a one-piece with a knee-length skirt and stockings, emerges. Police patrol the shores, stopping women who show too much calf.

2000s Sporty triangle tops and hipster bottoms showcase Giseleesque physiques, while the rise of mix-andmatch options allows women to individualize their looks.

1920s After World War I, the one-piece, or maillot, arrives. These are not the close-fitting numbers we wear today but romper-style suits in dark ribbed wool that cover part of the thigh and sag unattractively when wet.

1940s World War II rationing and the idolization of the hourglass figure lead to sleeker styles—like Ava Gardner’s chic polka-dot two-piece, made voluptuous with new stretch fabrics, built-in brassieres, and stomach panels.

1960s Though “invented” in 1946, the navelbaring bikini doesn’t become mainstream until the mid-’60s, accompanied by softer, skimpier tops with skinnier straps. No one nails this look better than Brigitte Bardot.

1990s Swimwear fashion splits into two camps in this designerobsessed decade: the ostentatiously glamorous, heavy on gold satin and logos, and the minimalist, seen in the clean lines of Naomi Campbell’s Hermès suit.

1980s Fashion’s fixation with the extremely slender gives way to more athletic, fuller-breasted bodies. Sporty styles come into vogue, epitomized by the red one-pieces worn by the Baywatch cast at the end of the decade.

1970s A new infatuation with ultra-svelte, super-tanned bodies yields ever more revealing styles. Christie Brinkley makes a splash in Sports Illustrated wearing only a thong bikini by Giorgio Di Sant’Angelo.

5 HOT BRANDS TO CHECK OUT BEFORE YOUR FIRST DIP THIS YEAR ALIX Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian West are fans of designer Alexandra Alvarez’s tasteful, minimalist bodysuits. This season she launches swimwear, with inventively cut one-pieces and bikinis in bright colors and understated neutrals. (alixnyc.com) AMARA Searing color, tropical prints, and decorative cutouts are the hallmarks of this Tulum-based line. Sunscreen and self-confidence required.

(bikyni.com) NOE WATER GARMENTS Be prepared to bare those cheeks in Noe’s sexy solid-colored suits, designed by lingerie experts (and twins) Shelah Jean Abubo and Bonnie Rae Boyes. (noegarments.com)

WARD WHILLAS The brand boasts elegant, architectural designs with activewear technology. Best of all? Nearly every suit is reversible.

HANDLE WITH CARE Swim designer and editor favorite Malia Mills on how to make your suit last longer than a summer fling.

Do: Hand-wash your suit in cold water after wear. Don’t: Throw it into the washer or dryer. Do: Use mild soap to wash your suit. Don’t: Use bleach. Do: Let your suit dry on a flat surface in the shade. Don’t: Dry it in the sun or the fabric will fade. Do: Alternate your suits so they have time to snap back into shape. Don’t: Wear your favorite in a hot tub—the heat and chlorine will destroy the fabric.

Before you begin playing makeup artist, take a refresher course in color theory.

Even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not plagued by discoloration elsewhere on your face, chances are you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t escaped those bluish brown undereye rings that resist concealer alone. Because dark circles can manifest diďŹ&#x20AC;erently depending on your skin tone, we asked the prosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pros to pick out the right hues for you. STEP 1 Apply a hydrating eye balm and let it soak in, says Dior makeup artist Martin. This will plump and smooth skin. STEP 2 Use your ring ďŹ nger to pat on a bit of yellow, peach, or red corrector, as directed below. STEP 3 Take your concealerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which should be about a shade lighter than your skin toneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and draw an upside-down triangle underneath each eye (from inner to outer corner); blend until lines disappear.

Whether you’re looking to dine at a Manhattan mainstay or soak up the nightlife scene, you’ll leave these gathering posts feeling like a local. DINNER INDOCHINE A fashion-crowd perennial: Olivia Palermo kicked off her Nordstrom collection at the French-Vietnamese fusion spot, and Prabal Gurung jokingly calls it his place.

Kate Hudson is running a bit behind schedule. She has just spent the past eight hours posing on the side of a cliff in the Pacific Palisades wearing a series of couture dresses that are worth, collectively, more than most anyone makes in a year. The shoot was supposed to have ended an hour ago, but when you’re in dresses like these, why would you want to rush—and why should you? “I definitely need this one for my Snap[chat],” she says with a playful smirk. She emerges from her dressing area into the California sunshine in a stunning macramé Giambattista Valli gown with an asymmetrical hem and a distinctly bridal feel. She’s walking slowly, with a tiny, almost imperceptible lift at the end of each step, as if she’s walking down the aisle. Before the official picture is taken, she will have produced a spontaneous “snap” that involves her longtime stylist David Babaii chasing after her as she scampers about the yard, laughing and posing amid the lush blooms of this idyllic estate. It’s close to 6 p.m. by the time the shoot wraps up, and Hudson is scheduled to attend the Saint Laurent fashion show (a one-night-only event at L.A.’s Palladium) and needs to leave in 30 minutes. “Do you mind talking to me while I get my hair and makeup done?” Hudson asks politely, scurrying into the house in a strapless lavender confection from Armani. Moments later she emerges, swaddled in a fluffy white robe, and takes a seat in a dining room chair near the window. As makeup artist Angela Levin dabs cover-up under her eyes and Babaii works a

curling iron through her perfectly tousled bob, she tells me about the first time she met Garry Marshall, the director of her new comedy, Mother’s Day. “He directed my mom in Overboard [1987], so I used to visit them all the time on the set when I was little.” And did her own kids come to see her on the set this time? “Of course,” she says, as if I had asked if her right leg spent much quality time with her left leg. “And it was just amazing to watch that circle of life.” As Hudson starts talking about her close relationship with her two boys, Ryder, 12 (from her first marriage to Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson), and Bing, 4 (dad is Muse singer Matthew Bellamy), I’m reminded of that scene in Mean Girls in which Amy Poehler tries to bond with her daughter and her daughter’s friends, saying, “I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom.” Only in Hudson’s case, she really is that cool—the kind of mom who brings her kids to the première of Kung Fu Panda 3 one day and attempts to teach them Transcendental Meditation the next. And, despite the many projects she is currently juggling—Mother’s Day, a book tour for her new wellness primer, Pretty Happy (Dey Street Books), her role as co-founderofFabletics—Hudson still manages to find time to dance around the house with her kids almost every day. In fact, many of the family’s spontaneous performances have been captured on Instagram, where Ryder can be seen dancing the Nae Nae as a big brown bear or tearing it up to Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen.” “When we do something, he’s the first person to say, ‘Mom, you gotta post that,’” she says. It’s a rare mother who can hold her own in a dance-off with a 12-year-old, I point out. “I was really young, like, 23, when I had Ryder,” she says. “So our relationship has always been [a little unusual]. I mean, we’re close, and I am his mom. I’m big on manners. I’m big on politeness. I’m big on gratitude. But I’m a bit of a wild mom.” “A wild mom?” I ask. “Yeah, as strict as I am when it comes to things like manners, Ryder sometimes has to put me in check. He and I are like buddies. He’ll turn to me and say, ‘Mom, you’re crazy for going out in that outfit.’ ” A passing glance at Hudson’s Instagram reveals that she has a booming social life—and there’s nothing mumsy about her fashion choices. As FOMO-inducing shot after shot attests, Hudson is part of an L.A. girl squad that would give Regina George and her gang whiplash. “I kind of like that we’re intimidating,” she says of the posse that includes (among others) actress Sara Foster, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, and multihyphenate Nicole Richie. “You know, when you see a group of girls walk in that are having more fun than anyone?” Hudson, who joined Instagram in 2014, says she loves sharing intimate snapshots of her life with

her 3.8 million followers. “Someone asked me, ‘Who does your Insta? It’s great!’ And I was like, ‘Are you out of your mind? I wouldn’t want anyone to touch my social media!’” One thing she’s not particularly interested in sharing with the social universe? Her relationship status. Though the star is rumored to be dating Nick Jonas, she is tightlipped on the subject. “Am I single?” she repeats my question out loud, smiling privately to herself, before saying very slowly and deliberately, “Yes, I am.” When I ask her how she deals with the constant public scrutiny of her personal life, she laughs. “It really feels like high school. I can’t say hello to anybody without [people speculating we’re together]. I don’t comment when I’m single because some of them are right, some of them are wrong. But I end up with everybody anyway! I’ve been linked to every one of my brother’s best friends. We’re going to do a coffee-table book of all of my ‘mystery men.’” Just then, Bing bounds into the room with Hudson’s assistant. He’s dressed in an almost all-black ensemble, with a skeleton emblazoned across his T–shirt. “He’s really got his own little style,” she says proudly, flashing him the same dazzling smile that’s helped turn many a frothy rom-com into blockbusters. Without missing a beat, he climbs onto her lap and she pulls him close, her long, flawlessly manicured mauve nails disappearing into a mop of sandy brown hair as he nuzzles his head against her chest. A delicate gold necklace (made by Meyer) inscribed with the words “I love you” sparkles in the dim light above his head as she explains that she won’t be putting him to bed tonight because she has to go to a “silly fashion show.” “Hold on a second while I change,” she says to me, dashing into the bathroom carrying a short black leather miniskirt and sheer top. Seconds later, she flings open the door. “Can someone help me with this zipper?” she calls out. I am standing right there, so I offer to help. It won’t budge. She pushes the sides together even closer, and I pull a little harder. Suddenly, it moves. For a moment, there is a sense of relief. And then we realize the pull has flown right off the teeth. “Well, that decides it,” Hudson says. “I can’t go. Guess what, Bing? I am going to put you to bed tonight.” After gamely posing for a selfie, Hudson says her goodbyes and I get into my car. I am mortified, both for busting her zipper and for crushing her plans for the evening. Hours later, pictures of Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga whooping it up at the Saint Laurent show will be plastered all over social media. But as I dart through the streets of Santa Monica, replaying the tape of our interview and hearing the happiness in her voice as she talks about her two boys, I can’t help but wonder if a broken zipper—and a cozy bedtime snuggle—isn’t just what she really wanted after all.

So I ruminated and ruminated. Meanwhile, the writer for InStyle who is penning the supplement accompanying my essay was asking me a few questions. I don’t mean this in any way negative, but it was questions I get quite often, which I understand, as it seems to be what most people are interested in hearing about. Question: HOW DO YOU BALANCE IT ALL? The dreaded question. One I feel I never answer properly. A question I wonder ifanyonetrulyhasanyanswerto.Idon’tbalance it all. Some days I feel incredibly overwhelmed. Some days I don’t. Some days I feel like I should win best mom of the day award, and some days I find myself doing strange things that don’t have any real purpose, in faraway corners in my house, and I realize I am literally and deliberately hiding from my children. Question: DO YOU HELP THEM WITH THEIR HOMEWORK OR ARE THEY PRETTY INDEPENDENT? Oh, man, now this just triggers every mom-guilt bone in my body. Yes, I help my kids with their homework. But I also get bored doing it. I willsitandlistentomychildrenpontificateanddiscusstheir ideas till the day is long because it warms my heart, but I really don’t want to do math! I’m gonna say it: I’d prefer to watch The Bachelor rather than do fractions and divisions. The questions I’ve gotten from other writers over the years go on and on. DO I COOK DINNER EVERY NIGHT? HOW DO I STAY IN TOUCH WITH THEM WHEN I’M GONE? DO I HAVE A RULE ABOUT HOW LONG I ALLOW MYSELF TO BE AWAY FROM THEM? DO I DO MY OWN GROCERY SHOPPING? I always answer them very politicallybecause context is important and the power of the pen is real. I never want anyone taking my words and changing them to fit their construct because I make a real practice in my life of being true to my world. And when it comes to my kids, and the most important job I have, which is being a parent, if I’m gonna break it down, it will be from my mouth to God’s ears, or in this case, my pen to the readers of InStyle. And here it is, more often than not, when I have finished these interviews talking about my personal life: I feel like I could be doing so much more as a mother. And it’s a constant, even when I’ve just dedicated an entire week to nothing but being Mom, which is challenging. As I am selfsustaining and my work rarely stops, I always feel I could be doing more. And the funny thing is, when it comes to your own kids, you always can be doing more.

THOUGHTS FROM A SINGLE WORKING MOTHER OF TWO. BY KATE HUDSON

ep, it’s true. I figured I may as well just come right out and say it. I also have a feeling that many women reading this will be nodding their heads with a hint of a smile, knowing EXACTLY what I’m talking about. Sometimes I feel like a bad mom! When InStyle asked me if I would be interested in writing a first-person essay for my cover story, I was incredibly excited. A bit nervous, as my personal writing style may be more suited for a publication like The Atlantic, but I have a strong feeling all the women who read InStyle will embrace the contents of this essay. I actually struggled about which direction I wanted to go in for this. It is the Mother’s Day issue, so a love letter to my mom could have been appropriate—but that seemed too easy. Summer is almost here, so I thought maybe something geared toward my love of travel, but that feels like a snoozefest of a read. I then, literally, wrote this very feminist essay that is now neatly tucked away in my computer because it just felt a little too heavy-handed. I mean, it’s summertime, for goodness’ sake. I’ll save my feisty feminist for October!

Even as I write this, I am traveling for a week away from my children to promote my book, Pretty Happy, and I’m so happy to have some time to myself and excited to have this experience. But there’s this tight, pulling sensation that never goes away that it comes at the cost of missing a week of my children’s lives, and it aches. I know what some will say: Quit, then—if it hurts so bad, then why do you choose to do it? Ahhhhh, I love that question. Because I do know that answer! I do it because I love it. Because even though every primal ounce of the nurturing, domestic woman in me gets pulled, I’m a hunter as well. And I love to hunt! And as a woman I feel that somehow we are supposed to feel apologetic about wanting both. But I don’t want to apologize for that anymore. Being both already comes at an emotional

cost, without adding society’s antiquated idea of the traditional roles of man and woman in the home. Not to say that I don’t have those days that I envy the stay-at-home mom and days I envy the mom who is so involved in her kids’ school she would never miss a school event. Then, in a moment of feeling overwhelmed or stressed, I do think maybe I should just stop. But I’d be lying to myself. I wouldn’t be the best mom I could be if I didn’t follow my creative endeavors. I would feel an emptiness that would be felt in our home. So a stay-at-home mom will never be my life and that will never be my kids’ experience of me. Hopefully, I can give them something different. Not better, not to be compared, just different. Hopefully, something that will inspire more women to feel comfortable being a domestic hunter. I’m kinda liking the sound of that … Something that will take the sting away from women who carry this similar guilt. Hopefully, I can give my kids the same sense of healthy attachment, even though my job requires distance. Hopefully, I can show them a sense of their own freedom and that following a dream and a passion can bring much happiness into their lives. Hopefully, I can show them that with some sacrifices comes great reward. Hopefully, I am creating an environment for them to feel that they are my absolute priority no matter what. Yes, I may be that mom on FaceTime watching my son’s science presentation from 6,000 miles away. But it’s midnight where I am, and I’m on that phone and maybe … just maybe … my kids will find inspiration in their mom, who’s trying to juggle a million plates but still shows up however she can. Maybe that will warm their hearts just as much as the kids whose moms are there. Maybe it’s not me being a bad mom, just a different kind of mom. It’s up in the air; it could go either way, and I will continue doing the best I can. But if Ryder’s Mother’s Day present two years ago is any indication, it’s looking like I might be on the right track. I can be proud of “World’s Okayest Mom,” but I’m more proud that my son is funny. Laughter will take me and my kids really far, so I’ll cheers to that! To all my moms everywhere, stay-at-home moms, working moms, dad-moms, momdads, whatever kind of mom you are, here’s to doing the best we know how, and here’s to the greatest, most complex role we’ll ever play! Happy Mother’s Day. ■

Just before Andra Day walked onstage to perform a give-you-chills duet mash-up with Ellie Goulding at this year’s Grammys, she paused to confer with the most trusted member of her inner circle. “My father grabbed my hand and whispered, ‘Sand, look around. Can you believe where we are?’” Day recalls. “My family has been supporting me for so long, which hasn’t always been easy financially, so it’s important that we take these moments to appreciate how far I’ve come.” It’s been a transformative year for the 31-year-old crooner. She was nominated for two Grammy awards: best R&B album for her début, Cheers to the Fall, and best R&B performance for her smash single, “Rise Up.” As “Rise Up” climbed the charts, her retro-inspired rockabilly aesthetic grew its own fashion following. Today, she’s makeup-free, with her hair tossed into a loose, just-out-of-the-shower bun, barely recognizable without her signature Hepburnesque coif and crimson lips. On a Lower Manhattan photo set, she indulges her penchant for bold florals and PJ-inspired silhouettes as she tries on a loose-fitting Dolce & Gabbana top and bottom set. “If it looks like your grandma’s bedsheets, I’ll put it on my body,” she jokes. “What I wear onstage is so stylized and bold. When I’m not working, I still love bright colors and patterns, but I choose pieces that are much more casual—I call it my lazy pinup look.” Her shopping strategy, though, is the exact opposite of lazy. “I search for items that have history, like vintage finds—I love fur kitten-heel house slippers from the 1950s—and pieces from fashion houses that have been around for a long time, like Chanel and Dior.” Fittingly, Day counts Lucille Ball among her biggest icons. “But not just because of her style,” she says adamantly. “I admire her strong character and her charisma. She dealt with criticism over her marriage to Desi Arnaz, and she was the first actress to show pregnancy on TV.” Day’s thoughtful demeanor is a testament to how she maintains balance in her life as her career skyrockets (she joined the ranks of Sandra Bernhard and Bette Midler in Marc Jacobs’s iconic spring campaign, kicked off a world tour, and has a film project in the works). “The key to being on trend is simply being content. When I’m feeling comfortable onstage, I’m giving my audience the best possible performance that I can,” Day says. “As Iris Apfel said, ‘It’s better to be happy than well-dressed.’” —CHRISTINA SHANAHAN Prada suede jacket.

DON’T BE BITTER, STARBUCKS. MORE PEOPLE PREFER THE TASTE OF GEVALIA. With over 150 years of experience making rich, never bitter coffee, it’s no wonder more people prefer the taste of Gevalia House Blend to your house blend, Starbucks. But don’t feel bad. We might have better taste in coffee. But you have better taste in artisanal cheese plates.

ENJOY THE TASTE OF RICH, NEVER BITTER GEVALIA. Your friend in coffee,

WHEN THE DESIGNER STUMBLED UPON A TIME-WORN APARTMENT ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF MILAN, HE TAPPED INTO A TALENT FOR CREATIVE REINVENTION THAT HAS FUELED HIS STORIED FASHION CAREER. “MIXING DIFFERENT STYLES, EVEN IF IT APPEARS WRONG, ALWAYS HAS A STRONG IMPACT,” HE SAYS by ERIC WILSON photographed by SIMON WATSON

Custom-made stained yellow glass sliding doors reveal the designer’s kitchen. “They were a suggestion from my architect, Hannes Peer,” says Dell’Acqua. “He had an old drawing of them, and I loved the idea from the beginning.

Opposite, clockwise from top: The elaborate Parisian-style boiserie in the dining area conceals everything from family photos to Christmas decorations. Framed artwork by photographers who have shot the designer’s ad campaigns (Mark Borthwick and Juergen Teller) lean against the living room walls, along with a vintage portrait of Silvana Mangano, Dell’Acqua’s favorite actress from the golden age of Italian cinema. In the master bathroom, an antique apothecary cabinet holds daily essentials. A Vanessa Beecroft photo sits on top. Sliding glass doors in the central living space open onto a sunny terrace, where the designer likes to entertain friends from the Milanese fashion community in the summer months.

Above: The details and palette of Dell’Acqua’s design offices are identical to those in his home, a short walk away. Case in point: these pale gray shelves at his workplace, which are filled with fashion magazines and books on designers including Cardin, Courrèges, and Ungaro. Right: A bulletin board hanging over a desk in Dell’Acqua’s office displays photos of his fashions clipped from magazines, as well as personal notes from celebrity friends like Nicole Kidman.

hen life tells you that you can never go home again, it might be time to find a new place to live. It was nearly seven years ago when Alessandro Dell’Acqua, then an established player on the Milan fashion circuit who was famous for seductive Dolce Vita– style dresses, faced a catastrophe that sometimes befalls even the savviest of designers. After clashing with his manufacturing partners over creative differences, he decided to walk away from his company. He issued a press release to announce that his last collection would be produced without his approval. While he left on his own terms, this also meant he would no longer be able to design under his own name since the rights to the Alessandro Dell’Acqua label remained with the investors. So after a brief period of mourning (you could call it an identity crisis), Dell’Acqua set about building a new business with a concept he called No. 21, after his lucky number and birthday (December 21). Livelier, more experimental, and less formal than his previous

Piero Fornasetti plates sit on a credenza in the dining room. “I didn’t start to collect them myself,” he says. “All my friends, on different occasions, started to give them to me as presents—so many that I have duplicates!”

work, the designs quickly caught on with a fashion set that was just beginning to embrace quirky, global street style. Editors and stylists instantly flocked to his image-making spangled skirts and offbeat fuzzy knits. “I always had so many strategies in place to build the Alessandro Dell’Acqua brand, and they all turned out different from what I’d expected,” the designer says on a sunny winter morning, days after his fall men’s show and just weeks before his next women’s collections are due to be presented. “So now, for No. 21, there is no plan. Everything is day by day.” Buoyed by his second chance at success, Dell’Acqua is unusually relaxed for a designer with so many responsibilities, including his plum post as artistic director of Rochas in Paris, which he has held since 2013 and which has lifted him back into the big leagues of fashion. Still slim and boyishly handsome at 53, he says his secret to maintaining sanity is through compartmentalization and a system of immaculate organization that extends from his stores to his office and even his home. It’s further evident on the walls of his apartment, where an ingenious set of storage cabinets and secret doors is built into the boiserie. As No. 21 began to take off (Italians refer to it as Numero Ventuno, but the label is widely known around the world as Number 21), Dell’Acqua teamed with the Milanese architect Hannes Peer to build a common aesthetic for both his living and working spaces that unites a love of traditional Italian style with a broader, more contemporary vision. Four years ago, they began to create the designer’s current apartment, located a few blocks from his offices on the eastern side of the city, with a design that makes the most of the abundant natural light from windows that face a lengthy outdoor entertaining area. “When I saw this apartment, it was really run-down, but I fell in love with the terrace,” Dell’Acqua says, “along with the original tile floor, which is typical of old Milanese houses.” He wanted a warm, inviting space but also one that was free of clutter and with lots of unexpected contrasts between the classical and the modern, which happens to be very much in line with his approach to fashion. On the runway, that might translate as a timeless evening gown paired with almost ridiculous-looking frothy, feathery slippers. At his home, you’ll find incongruous pairings, like a 19th-century Murano glass chandelier hanging over an Eero Saarinen Tulip dining table, or a polished white marble fireplace mantel that is encased


by a rough-edged frame of concrete. Somehow it all works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to re-create the atmosphere of an expansive hĂ´tel particulier from Paris yet keep some of the peculiarities of Milanese apartments,â&#x20AC;? he says. This was for two reasons: First, Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work life is so allconsuming that his apartment is really just an extension of his ofďŹ ce. He and his partner of nearly 20 years, Michele Santella, who designs accessories for the house, and their Jack Russell terrier, Gringo, are together all the time. And so are Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees, most of whom work on both the No. 21 and Rochas collections, so it helps that the environment is always familiar, no matter where they all are. Second, he is a bit of a hoarder. Born and raised in Naples, Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acqua came to Milan at an early age and at some point worked for practically every label in the city: Brioni, Genny, Enrica Massei, and Max Mara. He is adored by his fellow designers here, and likewise, Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for Milan is absolute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a city that offers a lot,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And in Milan, a lot of things are hidden away. Behind every door there are courtyards and gardens that you would never expect to ďŹ nd.â&#x20AC;? Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wall of boiserie is a metaphor, given that it also contains many secrets. One cabinet disguises a fantastic display of Murano glasses. Another holds decorative plates and mugs by Piero Fornasetti. Lean on a subtle panel with too much pressure and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd yourself in an otherwise unmarked washroom. Peeking through the treasures of his drawers, I ďŹ nd dog toys, old papers, and stacks of VHS tapes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the tapes anymore because the whole system has changed,â&#x20AC;? he says. Well, you could say that about fashion as well, but Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acqua has adapted better than most to an industry that always expects more and more ideas from designers, and faster. He has had plenty of them too since his comeback, the latest being the realization of a longtime dream: his own store in Milanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golden Square. And it is a testament to Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acquaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position here that so many of his colleagues turned up for the opening, including Rodolfo Paglialunga of Jil Sander, Francesco Scognamiglio, and Marco de Vincenzo. They admire him because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a survivor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The store is a tribute to the city I love,â&#x20AC;? Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acqua says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I have learned is that the fault of many young designers is to have big, big expectations. Now I know that it is better to live in the moment instead.â&#x20AC;? â&#x2013;

THE CLOSE-UP:

Designed by Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acqua and Hannes Peer, the new No. 21 Milan ďŹ&#x201A;agship store, pictured above, shares the ethereal gray palette and marble mosaics found in the fashion designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home and oďŹ&#x192;ces. Plus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly a coincidence that the Ceppo di GrĂŠ stone on the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walls and ďŹ&#x201A;oor was also used to build Milanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Duomo: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a city I feel particularly close to,â&#x20AC;? says Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Acqua.

Before you toss out that brick of brown sugar—or those stale cookies— consider this airtight container with a terra-cotta disc under the lid. Soaking the clay coin in water for 20 minutes and clipping it back in place when necessary will revive those dehydrated items with just the right amount of moisture. $13; kingarthurflour.com.

SEE-THROUGH BINS On the top shelf, store backup supplies for replenishing in-demand ingredients. Along with good lighting and a step stool, “those boxes prevent the pantry from turning into a mystery zone,” says Carreño. $50; stylishhomeandgifts.com.

TRAYS Arrange ingredients based on the family’s needs. Fill a tray marked “sandwich” with breads, peanut butter, and jelly, and a “baking” one with flours and sugars. $18; poppin.com. LAZY SUSANS AND RISERS A rotating tray keeps bottle labels front and center. A tiered stand makes it a cinch to spot your spices. From $7; containerstore.com.

CHILD-FRIENDLY CONTAINERS “Decant the kids’ snacks into clear, easy-to-open boxes on a low shelf that they can see and reach,” says Carreño. From $50/5; oxo.com. BASKETS Corral heavy beverages in labeled bins on the sturdiest shelf—aka the floor. $13; containerstore.com.

and pretty. When I started meeting people outside my immediate circle, I realized that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important to ask, Do I like me? What was the biggest insecurity you had to overcome during those years? I suffered

Lots of girls experience growing pains in middle and high school, but you were in the public eye at that point. How did you deal?

I was homeschooled from the third grade on, and I spent most of my high school years, ages 13 through 16, on the set of Shake It Up. Even though I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a traditional environment, I still found myself wanting to be well-liked

How did that experience make you stronger? I learned how to make awkward

situations seem somewhat funny. Friends have told me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a good person to have around when they are going through a tough time because I ďŹ nd a way to make them laugh, which is the biggest compliment. You have to take a deep breath, realize that whatever is stressing you out is not the end of the world, and trust that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll move on. Do you see yourself as a role model?

No. When you give yourself that title, you become too concerned with doing everything perfectlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you end up trying to make other people happy rather than yourself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to just make mistakes and know that the people around me still accept me for who I am. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love for my fans to see me when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at my most vulnerable or sad. You just turned 18. Do you feel like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve suddenly become an adult? I like having

my life in my own hands. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now up to me to schedule my doctorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appointments, take care of my credit card bills, and make career decisions. I feel my bravest when someone tells me I shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something and I can decide on my own whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing for me or not. What would you tell every girl in the world?

Just do you. It may not mean much now, but later on youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be so glad youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not pretending to be someone else. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;EMILY GREENER, co-founder and CEO of I Am That Girl

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of Bella Thorneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 million Instagram followers, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re familiar with her midworkout posts and the squad of stars she hangs with. What you may not know is that the 18-year-old former Disney actress, who launched her career opposite Zendaya in the tween series Shake It Up, is using her celebrity status to inspire other teens. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written a trilogy of young adult books, Autumn Falls, centered on a high school girl trying to ďŹ nd her inner strength, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been outspoken in the Stomp Out Bullying campaign. This month sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll appear in the third installment of the Amityville Horror franchise, The Awakening, followed by the comedy-drama Shovel Buddies later this year. Together with nonproďŹ t organization I Am That Girl we caught up with Thorne to talk about embracing her quirks.

from dermatitis and went through a period when I had terrible acne. I cried every night for months. It sounds silly to say that I cared so much about my face, but when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a young girl, it takes a toll on your self-esteem. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable how people looked at me differently because I had pimples. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still self-conscious about it.
