HOLLYWOOD’S MOST-COVETED FACIAL

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, actress, Kate Beckinsale shared on social media, “After a long flight I do like to lie down and be covered in a mask of liquified cloned foreskins-frankly who doesn’t?” Crediting celebrity facialist, Georgia Louise, Beckinsale added, “I especially liked you reassuring me it would be “light on penis” as it was my first time x”

Georgia Louise, creator of the GLOPulse device, also conceived the Hollywood EGF Facial, beloved by A-Listers Cate Blanchett, Sandra Bullock, Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lawrence, and, of course, Kate Beckinsale. In March Cate Blachett first shared intel on in the pages of Vogue Australia. “Sandy Bullock and I saw this facialist in New York, Georgia Louise, and she gives what we call the penis facial and its something,” Blanchett exclaimed, “I don’t what it is, or whether its just cause it smells a bit like sperm — there’s some enzyme in it so Sandy refers to it as the penis facial.”

The EGF facial includes a cleanse, an intensive (yet painless)  TCA peel, micro-needling with stemcells, followed a galvanic alginate mask to calm, hydrate and cool the skin. The legendary serum is  a “cocktail formula” of Epidermal Growth Factor, derived from the progenitor cells of the human fibroblast cells.  According to Louise, they “help to generate collagen and elastin, to tighten and firm the skin. This process allows the active ingredients to be transported deep in the skin by creating temporary micro-channel.”  But there is some downtown, the esthetician warns.  For 24-48 hours following treatment, “You may be red resembling a sunburn, you should not lay out in the sun during this time, and no hot yoga or swimming. You may also have needle marks the next day.”  We also were warned about the A-List price.  The 80-minute treatment costs $650!

TREND ALERT: HAIR AND BEAUTY SECRETS FROM CANNES

Tuesday, May 15th, 2018

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.
