Francois Nars Opens New Boutique on Melrose

NARS has opened their first flagship boutique in the West Coast and it couldn't have been in a more perfect location.

Nestled in the center of all things fashionable, the brand new hot spot is neighbors with Marc Jacobs and Alexander McQueen. The 1,500 square-foot free-standing boutique is the brain child of the makeup guru Francois Nars and Fabien Baron, of New York design firm Baron & Baron.

And to celebrate its grand opening, NARS threw an exclusive VIP party with A-list guests like Mandy Moore, Rachel Zoe, and Alessandra Ambrosio. But just because you're not an A-lister doesn’t mean you can't enjoy star-quality treatment or makeup products. Just drop by the boutique for a personal consultation.

It's open now so go check it out on 8412 Melrose Avenue.   See more »

New Skin Care Product We're Excited About: Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv SuperCreme

The new innovations include the Intensive Age-Renewal Creme and Eye Creme, and there will also be additional products in the Ultimate Lift Age-Correcting Collection. All of the products offer tons of hydration and help with fine lines and give skin a radiant glow. To figure out your perfect match, check out saks.com or head to Saks Fifth Avenue to try…

Beauty Look of the Week: Julianne Hough

Trying out two bold trends at the same time can be risky, but Julianne Hough proved it can be worth it -- when you do it right. The actress displayed a funky French braid updo and a vampy statement lip -- and we couldn't be more obsessed with this fresh combo.

The trick to copying her look? Hough balanced out the deep lipstick stain with rosy cheeks. We suggest pairing Maybelline ColorSensational Lipcolor in Deepest Cherry, $7.50 with Tarte Cheek Stain in Natural Beauty, $30.  Read More »

Attention All Non-DIYers, There's a New Salon for You

Do you have a million DIY hair mask recipes stashed on your Pinterest boards but have yet to try a single one? I get it, it's a pain to actually do when you don't have all the ingredients on hand, don't have a good blender, or just don't want to mess up your bathroom with avocado goop.

But it is worth trying these treatments, because they really do work. Which is why TheBroot Hair Treatment Bar in Santa Monica, Calif. is so cool. They use all-natural ingredients (avocado, honey, eggs, coconut oil, etc.) to whip up customized hair masks. At my visit, I got the strengthening treatment (plus a dash of mayo for softness, so it really was more of a custom blend). Then you get to enjoy a nice scalp massage and a few minutes under the dryer with your mask on. After, they'll rinse you…  See More »
