Ready for Anything: The Ultimate Hurricane Flipper Heels


Hey, we just wanted to check — all you Northeast residents carried a pair of these high-heeled flippers in your go bags over the weekend, right? Or better yet, actually wore these flipper heels to efficiently slog through flooded streets?

At any rate, that handy stiletto would help keep your head above rising waters. We’re not sure the source of this incredible footwear (but thanks to His Talk for finding the image), so if any of you out there knows where to pick up a pair, we’d be very thankful for the help in preparing for next year’s hurricane season.

Sharks Are Friends, Not Food!


Did you know that the growing demand for shark fin soup and other shark products has fueled a decline in shark populations by over 90% in just a few decades? For some, the thought of sharks is scary but the truth is that they are necessary in maintaining healthy marine ecosystems around the world and their survival is hanging in the balance.

LUSH has teamed up with one of the leading marine conservation organizations, Shark Savers to bring an end to shark fining altogether. Launching today is LUSH’s limited edition Shark Fin Soap ($5.95) with 100% of the proceeds going to Shark Savers’ work to raise awareness for shark conservation. This ocean inspired soap has a decorative paper fin, is packed with seaweed and sea salt and will be available at www.lushusa.com and at LUSH stores across North America while supplies last. Help in the fight to protect our ocean’s sharks by putting down shark fin soup and picking up shark fin soap instead.

My Favorite Top For Fall!



A few weeks ago I received this gorgeous top from IZ Byer California, and realized within two minutes that it was to become my go-to staple for fall. This soft, cozy stretch jersey top with it's criss-cross neckline and ultra-feminine ruffle is the perfect juxtaposition to a pair of skinny jeans or a sleek pencil skirt. The surplice styling and cap sleeves are extremely flattering and the fit is just right.

The best part? The top comes in a variety of colors (which, of course, I immediately snapped up on Kohls.com!) and will crry your fall wardrobe to new heights of stylishness! I give this top an A+!

Mad Men’s Mesmerizing Makeup



AMC's Mad Men, winner of three consecutive Golden Globes and back-to-back Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, doesn’t return until early next year, but the buzz around the popular show is never-ending. The dramatic, award-winning series set in New York during the 1960’s features classic, stylized, and flawless looks that have influenced many to create modern takes on timeless classics—even inspiring a new Banana Republic clothing line!

Lana Horochowski, the head makeup artist for Mad Men, uses Koh Gen Do to create a classic look and 60’s feel on Elisabeth Moss, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks. Lana says, “I am obsessed with the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation. It creates a flawless canvas on all ages and skin types. I love its durability on set and that after an 18 hour shoot day my actors never complain about their makeup feeling too heavy or cakey.”

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation ($62) is a high-definition foundation that fully moisturizes and covers imperfections for satin-smooth looking skin. The unique Strobe Illuminator formula minimizes pores and imperfections for a flaw-less and even look.

Koh Gen Do products are available online at www.kohgendocosmetics.com or at any Barneys New York location.

Back to School Basics With Jemma Kidd

Reading, Writing, Rouge

The leisurely days of summer are over, and it’s back to the books. The soothing sound of waves crashing on the sand is replaced by beeping alarm clocks and class bells—but don’t consider the fun totally done. Jemma Kidd, international make-up artist and award winning product designer, shares back to school beauty tips and tricks that are as easy as ABC.

A. Moisturize

Skin can feel tight and dehydrated after a day in the sun, so apply an intensive moisturizer to nourish and soothe, leaving skin smooth, plumped and less likely to peel. Use a hydrating face mask to restore moisture and help repair damage.

B. Makeup

Face: As your tan fades, consider switching to a heavier-coverage foundation - on thoroughly moisturized skin a cream foundation won't cake or look too thick. Apply it sparingly with fingers or a sponge and work it into the skin thoroughly. Your skin will probably get paler, and you should change your foundation or concealer to reflect that.

Try: Jemma Kidd Makeup School Light As Air SPF 18 Foundation

Eyes: I'm a huge fan of natural beauty in summer, but I like bringing in richer colors in the fall. Jewel and berry colors are fantastic for eyeshadow - try the brighter tones in a moisturizing cream shadow on the lid or to define the socket, as well as the smoky shades that look so sexy. Avoid too much pink, as this brings out redness in the eyes and skin.

Try: Tailored I-Ris Enhancers


Lips: Carry a wax balm and reapply frequently. Look for a lipgloss with moisturizers or vitamin E to protect the lips while adding shine. Treat yourself to a flattering red lipstick, preferably matte rather than gloss, so it is less easy to smudge.

Try: Hi-Shine Silk Touch Lipgloss and Ultimate Lipstick Duo in Scarlett

C. Bronze

Apply a touch of bronzer that naturally catch the sun. Powder bronzer can be brushed in a T-shape over the nose and forehead, with a little on the cheekbones, collarbones, décolletage and sides of the neck. For day use a light reflecting crème bronzer. Body moisturizers with added gold give a light glow to arms and legs.

Try: JK Jemma Kidd Showstopper Water-Resistant Bronzer.
