Emmys 2009 Beauty: Christina Hendricks

emmys+2009+christina+hendricks Emmys 2009 Beauty: Christina HendricksMad Men star Christina Hendricks knows that the best accessory a woman can have on the red carpet is luminous skin. Which is why her makeup artist, Georgie Eisdell relied on La Mer products for the 2009 Emmy Awards.

Georgie said, “The look we went for with Christina had a little 20’s influence. I wanted it to keep Christina’s makeup really fresh, clean and elegant. I prepared her skin with La Mer’s The Moisturizing Lotion – it’s perfect to hydrate the skin with being greasy and a perfect base for foundation. Next, I love La Mer’s Treatment Fluid Foundation SPF 15 for Christina. It is light on the skin but gives excellent coverage where needed. Under her eyes I used La Mer’s new Radiant Concealor SPF 25 – a genius product, it goes on so easily and does not cake under the eye. Before I started on her eye I lathered her lips with La Mer’s The Lip Balm. I love using this on Christina; she has full lips so keeping them hydrated is really important and when it’s time to apply lipstick it goes on beautifully.”

ANSR Too Cool For School Giveaway

 ANSR Too Cool For School GiveawayThis school year, head back to the hallways with the best-looking skin in the building. Whether you’re a freshman in high school or a college professor, a law school student or a nursery school teacher, ANSR: has the solution with its two amazing skincare kits, which target the biggest skin woes, no matter what age.

ANSR:’s development team has harnessed the effectiveness of photo light therapy into the BEAM, a handheld, portable device that uses both red and blue photo light therapy to treat your skin – doing more than any other device out on the market and for a fraction of the cost of similar spa treatments. The blue light helps destroy impurities beneath the skin, and the red light penetrates deeply to rejuvenate the skin and stimulates collagen growth to improve skin tone and texture and reduce redness.

ANSR: also developed accompanying topical solutions to create two separate kits targeting different focuses – anti-aging or acne treatment:

NARS Cleansing Oil

nars+cleansing+oil NARS Cleansing Oil“Great skin is the first step to looking beautiful” – François Nars

Great skin begins with a radiant canvas, entirely free of any makeup residue. This technically advanced formula is the first, and most important step in the cleansing process. The weightless, silky solution eliminates makeup traces and flushes out pores, prepping the skin for cleansing. Excess oil coating the skin surface is obliterated, and clarity is visibly improved.

Unlike most facial oils, NARS Makeup Cleansing Oil can be applied with wet or dry hands, and rinses off effortlessly with zero residue. Both gentle and effective enough to use on the eyes and lips.

NARS Makeup Cleansing Oil ($40) will be available in September 2009 on narscosmetics.com.
