Victoria’s Secret.

The girls of VS unite for an edition of 10 that targets sensuality and glamour. In a special collaboration with ShowStudio.com and Nick Knight, editor in chief Sophia Neophitou reimagines the beauties of VS as futuristic pinups. Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Joan Smalls, Behati Prinsloo, Lais Ribeiro, Jourdan Dunn, Lily Donaldson, Devon Windsor, Sui He, Cindy Bruna, Barbara Fialho and Ming Xi feature in psychedelic portraits by Knight that radiate sexiness and beauty from his uniquely artistic perspective. The 12 covers are in part a commemoration of VS’s recent jaunt to London for its annual fashion show, but more than that they serve as a truly modern interpretation of sexiness a fact Neophitou cherishes, “Without a moment of hesitation I knew that the perfect person for this creative adventure would be Nick Knight. I can honestly say he surpassed every expectation I had and created a series of memorable, unique images.”

mdc ♥’s : beauty to go!

September 26th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

With fashion month in full swing it feels like everyone is headed somewhere. Even if you weren’t jetting off to Milan to catch last week’s Prada show, it is still good to know what beauty essentials you ought to be toting with you – you never know when those to die for invites are going to come in the mail. As such here are a few of our beauty favorites for you international jet setters.

Clarisonic MIA – Don’t leave home without it, the best skincare brush in a pocket size that makes it perfect for trips. With only one speed (the original Clarisonic has three) it is even easier to use and works just as well when it comes to exfoliating and cleansing.

Malin & Goetz Detox Face Mask – Planning on spending late nights out at those fashion week parties? Who can resist the temptation. Think of Malin & Goetz’s mask as a detox plan for your face, the lightweight foam is packed with complex amino acids and natural almond extract to soothe the skin and provide gentle cleansing.

Bobbi Brown Tortoise Shell Eyeshadow Palettes – Every single eyeshadow you will need in a perfectly portable case. With this you can create everything from an “I just rolled out of bed looking this fabulous” neutral look to the coveted perfect smoky eye. Bobbi offers two different palettes depending on your skintone, but we found both worked fabulously. Keep in mind that this is a limited edition item, so be sure to get yours before they run out!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation – If it is good enough for the girls of Chanel couture, it is good enough for us. 10 hours worth of coverage in one tiny bottle.

Illamasqua Volume Mascara Alex Box‘s Illamasqua line is filled with unique products and one of our favorites is her volumizing mascara. One coat and you look completely done.

NUDE Skincare Hydrating Water – The instant solution to the horrific dryness you’ll find in most airplane cabins. One spritz and you’re good.

Estee Lauder Cooling Eye Illuminator – A handy little gem that we go back to again and again, because it just works. If you haven’t gotten eight hours of sleep, or just suffer from puffy eyes this solves the problem in an instant.

iPad 2 – Granted, the iPad is not necessarily a beauty must have, but there is no better way to bring all your magazines, books, movies and other sources of fashion inspiration with you on the road. Want to read the latest Vogue Italia on the plane? It is right there with a click of a button.

mdc ♥s : All About Eyes

May 27th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

The eyes are the window to the soul and they’re often the first thing people pay attention to when they see us. All the more reason to pamper them with the right creams and adorn them with the very best shadows and liners. This week MDC rounds up our favorite beauty products for eyes, each one used frequently by members of our team. Be sure to let us know what your personal favorites are in the comments!

REN Active 7 Radiant Eye Maintenance Gel
This unique gel de-puffs the delicate under eye area quickly and effectively. Perfect for mornings when you’ve gotten less sleep than you should, or evenings spent out on the town. Dab a tiny bit of the cooling formula on any and all puffiness and prepare to be dazzled by the results. We’ve seen REN’s product pop up in many a makeup artist’s kit and we completely understand way. Added bonus, we love the purse friendly size of this product – great for touching up throughout the day.

skyn ICELAND Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels
For those days when you really are in need of help, give sky ICELAND’s eye gels a try. The cooling pads can be placed beneath the eye area to reduce the appearance of puffiness, fine lines and broken blood vessels in 10 minutes. With the long and eventful party season fast approaching, these are sure to become a mainstay for anyone who had a little too much fun the night before.

Lancome Genifique Eye
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and Genifique’s formula offers care for those first signs of aging by stimulating the production of cells. The gel promises brighter, firmer skin in seven days and during that time we saw definite improvement in the texture and elasticity of the skin surrounding our delicate peepers. What can we say, if its good enough for spokeswoman Julia Restoin-Roifteld, it is good enough for us!

Bobbi Brown Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow
We tried and tested several different variety of cream eyeshadow, but Bobbi Brown’s was the absolute best. With a wide variety of colors as well as an unrivaled lasting power, these little shadow pots left us thoroughly impressed. Try a glittering pale shade like Pink Coral for day and deep dark shade like Black Pearl for an easy smoky eye when evening comes.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Shadows
Developed by Tom Pecheux and used on the likes of Hilary Rhoda and Liu Wen, this extensive range of colors and shades has enough variety to keep even the most voracious cosmetics fiends happy. Estee is all about quality, so the shadows are as long lasting and very easy to apply, whether you’ve got your own set of brushes or use the little applicator they come with. Our personal favorite shades were the glittering Emerald Star and Sizzling copper.

YSL Faux Cils Noir Radical
There are about a million mascaras on the market and we’ve tried them all (and have about 30 mascara tubes to prove it) Faux Cils was our favorite for the volumizing effect, lasting power and rich black color (Noir Radical is pure midnight black) that makes all eye colors stand out. Not in the mood for basic black – give brights like Extreme Blue and Fascinating Violet a try.

Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

Hands down the very best and gentlest eye-makeup remover there is. Cuts through thick black liner and three coats of mascara without stinging your eyes, or leaving behind a streaky mess. Beloved by makeup artists, models and the team here for its speed and ease of use – plus  the ultra-portable wipes are wonderful for on the go!

The Luscious Miss Lily

May 23rd, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Oh Lily Donaldson, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways!
We’ve watched Lily blossom from ingenue to bombshell and no matter the story she manages to bring a unique elegance to her images. Check her out on the cover of Muse Magazine, looking sensational in a shot by Matt Irwin. Dressed in looks from Prada, Hermes and Vuitton chosen by stylist Darcy Backlar, Lily looks as good as ever. Nicolas Jurnjack‘s glamazon hair and Adrien Pinault‘s understated makeup serve to highlight Lily’s beauty and we’re loving Irwin’s high gloss imagery.
