Summer Beauty 2013:
Bare-faced Beauty: Everything You Need to Know
Gwyneth Paltrow's skin looks flawless, and part of that is the preparatory products that go in before foundation. Prior to applying undereye concealer or any eyecolor, makeup artist Angela Levin used Angels Make Up Collagen Pads ($76; nigelbeauty.com) under Paltrow's eyes to plump and smooth; she then used a makeup sponge to dab Ultimate Foundation Primer onto her face and neck. Once you have a perfectly smooth canvas, makeup adheres better and looks far more flawless. Levin then used a brush to sweep on Chanel Perfection Lumiere Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige Ambre ($55; chanel.com), making for skin that looks bare but glowing and healthy.
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
