ANGELINA X GUERLAIN

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Calling Angelina Jolie the “icon” of its new fragrance for women, Mon Guerlain, French beauty brand, Guerlain Parfumier, announced its partnership with the actress on Monday.  Jolie, 41, and the legendary fragrance brand (established in 1828) began their partnership more than a year ago, when she was shooting a film in Cambodia; however, according to the brand’s press release, Jolie’s love for Guerlain began at childhood.  She recalls the scent of her mother’s violet-laced Guerlain powder and the wonderful memories it evoked.  While elements of the fragrance have yet to be released, master perfumer, Thierry Wasser, said he drew inspiration for the scent from “notes of a woman,” meaning “the choices, emotions, and dreams that embody modern femininity.”  Jolie, a very modern business woman and true philanthropist, is donating her entire salary from the collaboration to one of her charities.  Mon Guerlain will be released in March 2017.

LIP OBSESSED? 4 TIPS FOR LUSCIOUS LIP

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Jolie LipsThe desire for full lips is not anything new. From classic bombshells like Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren to today’s stars, Margot Robbie, Angelina Jolie and Rihanna, luscious, kissable lips have never gone out of style. Social media is always buzzing with debates over models and celebrities with fuller lips. How full is too full and when does it start to look fake?  Are lip injections the solution?  “The more that celebrities admit to having lip injections and the more attention this particular procedure gets in the media, the more accessible it becomes. The danger is that the procedure is complicated. Not just anyone can do a lip augmentation,” explains board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Zannis.  We asked the good doctor to share his tips on achieving luscious, natural-looking lips!

Use matte liquid lipstick.  Liquid lipstick is popular because it’s easy! It goes on like a lip-gloss but dries matte on your lips like a lipstick and is nearly impossible to smear or take off without makeup remover. Liquid lipstick ideal for creating a bombshell look for night out or special occasion where you want lipstick to stay put for a long time.  Suggested brands:  ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips, NYX Matte LipstickKat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor

Go for lip fillers.  Dr. John Zannis, who frequently works with fillers, explains that lip fillers are a great option if you want to alter the shape and volume of your lips semi-permanently. “They mostly contain hyaluronic acid, which can be injected safely in multiple sessions. The amount is easy to control by a skilled cosmetic surgeon or licensed professional, which allows you to achieve your goal gradually. The effects last around six months, at which point you may do another round of injections.” He reminds us that achieving a natural look is the goal and that over-filled cartoon mouths look distorted.

Try some cool contouring techniques.  Contouring is another awesome makeup trick to achieve a fuller look. It involves using lighter and darker shades of makeup to play up your features and give you a more defined, chiseled look. The great part is you probably have all you need in your makeup bag already.  Dr. Zannis explains that the key is to strive for facial symmetry. “If you use lip liners, glosses and other cosmetics to create a fuller look consider your other features and natural lip shape.”  There are plenty lip-contouring tutorials on YouTube for free.

Use a lip plumper.  Lip plumpers are great in that they are easy to use, are non-invasive, work fast and are affordable. They’re typically infused with lip tingling ingredients like cinnamon, pepper and peppermint which leads to an instant yet slight swelling.  Suggested brands:  Patricia Wexler M.D. No Injection Lip Plumper, Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme, and DuWop Original Lip Venom
