Beauty Buzz: Latest Beauty News
From what's on our screens to what's lighting up our social media feeds, Beauty Editor Cirilia Rose rounds up what we're looking forward to this fall.
New and Noteworthy
Never resting on their fragrant laurels, diptyque just released a collection of whimsical scented accessories. "Mobile diffusers" expand on the convenience of rollerballs and solid perfumes in three innovative forms—perfumed stickers for the skin, braided bracelets and Renaissance-inspired brooches. The eye-catching conversation pieces are available in such favorite diptyque florals as Do Son, Eau Rose and L'Ombre dans L'Eau.
What We're Watching
Eyes on Euphoria
Beauty lovers' Instagram timelines have been blessed lately with an extra dose of magic thanks to the viral looks featured on HBO's Euphoria. New to Nordstrom brand LEMONHEAD.LA played an integral role in some of the most memorable scenes, lighting up the screen with a flurry of color and shine. Makeup department head Doniella Davy tells us why she loves these iconic glitters.
"I wanted to make sure that the characters' eyes twinkled and showed emotion, particularly when filming in low light." She recommends applying with fingers on bare skin or using a flat concealer brush for a more intense effect over shadow or liner. "A little pop of glitter makes the best finishing touch to any makeup—day or night, rain or shine, casual or festive." We can't wait to see what she dreams up for season two.
Heading to one of our fall Beauty Trend shows? You just might meet Marcella Schlitt, our newly appointed Beauty Director. She comes to the role with over a decade of Nordstrom experience and is a lifelong beauty devotee. Read on to get to know her and (bonus!) get some hot tips.
Who are your favorite makeup artists? Any iconic looks or moments?
Kevyn Aucoin, Charlotte Tilbury & Pat McGrath are some of my favorites. Pat McGrath created so many iconic looks—Louis Vuitton, spring 2012, is one of my favorites. The fresh look was simple yet stunning. I love a focus on lashes, plump highlighted skin with a glossy lip. It's classic and my personal go-to.
Any trends you're particularly excited to try this fall?
I LOVE the focus around gold. It is a beautiful shade on every skin tone and can be simple or playful depending on the product and application. Charlotte Tilbury's Glowgasm Beauty Wand Highlighter in Goldgasm is stunning!
What are your everyday must-haves? Is there one product that makes you feel 1,000% better every time you use it?
Sisley Paris Eye Contour Mask is essential for reducing puffy eyes. I also love a face mist. It's great to wake up the skin in the morning and also for an afternoon pick-me-up. Too Faced Hangover Setting Spray is my top choice. After a day of meetings my eyes can use a lift—I always reach for Trish McEvoy Line Refiner. It's like Starbucks in a tube for underneath the eyes! I don't go anywhere without a nude glossy lip, usually CHANEL Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue in Warm Beige. Fragrance is super important to me because scent sets the energy. I don't leave my house without my signature scent, Le Labo Santal 33.
Fashion Month is upon us—what are your personal can't-miss shows?
It's hard to pick, as I love to capture the vibe and energy from many designers. Some of my can't-miss shows are Helmut Lang, Tom Ford, Gucci, Dior, Alexander Wang, Louis Vuitton and Off-White.
