mdc ♥s: Summer Beauty

July 30th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle


Is there a more perfect summer beauty than Marloes Horst? We think not!

Makeup melting? Skin acting up? Generally feeling too hot for comfort due to weather ( or perhaps you’re just overheated from looking at that Made in Brazil preview) take a look at some of our favorite products to help you beat the heat.

Adjusting your skincare routine for the summer is a surefire way to alleviate some of the season’s annoyances. Switch to a lightweight moisturizer like Amore Pacific’s Moisture Bound. The unique gel provides enough moisture without ever getting greasy or slick. The oil and sulfate free blend also promises to protect skin against environmental aggravations.

If you aren’t slathering on sunscreen in this heat, you ought to be! Protect yourself with one of La Roche Posay’s foolproof sunscreens. We like the ultra light Anthelios for ease of use and the fact that it can double as a foundation primer.

As the one eyeliner that didn’t melt off our face during the heatwave (believe us when we say that others did and we were looking like raccoons for a minute there) we have to give a special nod to Shiseido’s Automatic Fine Eyeliner. Anything good enough for both Dick Page and Raquel Zimmermann is certainly good enough for us! The brand’s beautiful eye shadow trio in the limited edition Pink Sands, is another of our faves.

Bronzer is a tough call. The deep sienna shades we see on the runways rarely carry over into real life and the dreaded Oompa Loompa overdose of orangey bronze is all too common. Thankfully, Bobbi Brown’s natural matte shades, make the selection process easier. The matte texture is natural looking and the wide range of shades provides a fool proof option for every skin color – the new shades like Rich Cocoa and Deep Chocolate are incredible.

Hourglass’ cheek stain is another summer winner with its bright long lasting color that can be applied with the fingertips. Top it all off with a swipe of Lancome’s color fever gloss, ala the brand’s spokeswomen Daria Werbowy and Emma Watson. Were in love with the summery shade, Hibis-Kiss.

Anything that makes things simpler is always welcome and Ellis Faas‘ special summer bronze set is phenomenal. The futuristic silver pens contain a blush, a lipgloss and a shimmering gold highlighter; everything you need to create a beautiful look is right there at your fingertips. Faas’ name is familiar in fashion circles – she’s a frequent contributor in Vogue Italia and creates the trendsetting cosmetic looks for designers like Giambattista Valli and her new line takes a little of that glamour and brings it to the masses.

Dots and Loops

July 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Making polka dots look classy is no small feat. The graphic circles are most often associated with retro kitsch rather than modern elegance, but George Cortina manages to create a series of beautiful looks on Saskia de Brauw in Mikael Jansson‘s story for Vogue Japan. Using pieces from Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and McQueen, Cortina crafts ensembles that work perfectly with Saskia’s androgynous and refined persona.
