Millions of onlookers cheered as Prince Harry married his American love, Meghan Markle, Saturday morning at St. George’s Chapel of Windsor Castle. The newly-named Duke and Duchess of Sussex beamed as they exchanged vows.  Dressed in an elegant white gown of double-bonded silk cady, designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy (see below), the Duchess’s veil featured distinctive flora embroidery, representing the 53 Commonwealth Countries, secured by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara.

Ms. Markle’s hair was styled by Serge Normant, with make-up by long-time friend and make-up artist Daniel Martin.  “I was really flattered to know that I was going to be a guest at the wedding and to be able to share this incredible moment with her,” Martin said on Friday’s episode of ABC’s 20/20. “I didn’t assume anything, [so] when I got the invitation, of course, I was flattered and so stoked.”  Martin gave Markle a smokey eye, with luscious lashes, and completely the look with a girlish peachy-pink lip.  Foundation was light, as not to cover Markle’s freckles, and the future Duchess enjoyed a beautiful bridal glow.

SEALED WITH A KISS!

As men age, the vessels in their penises weaken, contract, and fill with micro-plaque, which can lead to Erectile Dysfunction. As these tiny vessels become clogged, the penis decreases in sensitivity, making it harder for men to achieve and maintain an erection. A new non-invasive medical procedure, GAINSWave, uses low-intensity shockwave therapy to enhance sexual performance and to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED) symptoms.  The protocol can enhance performance by using high-frequency acoustic waves to repair existing blood vessels and improve blood flow.  Clinical studies have shown that shockwave therapy is beneficial in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction.

“GAINSWave is an ideal solution for men looking to improve spontaneous erections without the use of Viagra or Cialis,” says Dr. Premal Desia of Tower Urology in Los Angeles.  GAINSWave treatments are currently being offered at Tower Urology, The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity, Columbia Men’s Health in South Carolina, and other medical facilities nationwide.

 

FOCUS ON MEN’S HEALTH: A NEW TREATMENT FOR ED!


From luminescent faces to dramatic updos and ruler-straight middle parts, our friends at BeautyPress helps us take a look at the beauty and hair trends which have, thus far, ruled the red carpets at the 2018 Festival de Cannes:

FRESH FACES + ACCENTUATED EYES + PINK LIPS  Spotted On: Kristen Stewart, Romee Strijd and Lea Seydoux  Forget overdone matte makeup looks — fresh faces are very much back on trend if Cannes is anything to go by! Stars ranging from Kristen Stewart to Penelope Cruz to Cate Blanchett have all been sporting luminescent “naked” skin paired with accentuated eyes and shimmery pink lips.

To achieve the look, you need to start with a good skincare regime: cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize to remove dead skin cells and reveal your skin’s natural glow. Then opt for a natural-finish, light-coverage foundation as your base (you’ll want to avoid anything matte or full-coverage). Tap a few dots of concealer on problem spots to even out your skin tone, then fix the look with a light pressed powder that will diffuse shine without mattifying your skin.  To complete the look, choose either shimmery eye shadow paired with nude pink lips or opt for pink lipstick paired with a smoky eye.

STRONG MIDDLE PARTS   Spotted On: Penelope Cruz, Cate Blanchett, Chloe Sevigny and Georgia May Jagger   A strong middle part can seem intimidating to many who think that they only work for certain face shapes or hair lengths. Yet, since the festival’s opening day, stars have been taking to the carpet in droves to show us how this classic parting can suit pretty much everyone!  The middle part is also incredibly forgiving when you’ve not had time to touch up your roots as well. Celebrity stylists agree that showing your roots has actually been “in” for some seasons now and can modernize this classical look — as demonstrated by Chloe Sevigny and Georgia May Jagger at the Cannes Opening Ceremony.
