Beauty fix: How to get the most out of your summer beauty products and make them last in the heat



Every week our Beauty Fix columnist takes on your questions about makeup, skincare, hair and more. Have a beauty question we haven’t answered? Email us at or ask away in the comments below.

What’s a summer beauty product I can splurge on?
Treating yourself doesn’t have to mean splurging on something that serves little to no purpose. Instead, get major bang for your buck and buy something that can be used in multiple ways. Aerin Beach Cream ($50, can be used as a post-sun body hydrator, leaving behind a hint of bronze tint with incredibly subtle shimmer, or it can be applied to hair as a conditioning treatment while you’re still in the sun, as heat activates the treatment, leaving hair soft and shiny. If you’re in a pinch, a tiny dab can be used on cheekbones for a bit of radiance. The cream is infused with rose-based floral fragrance that will help you freshen up after a day in the sun.

Who was best dressed at Fall 2014 Couture Week? Our top 5 celebrity picks


fall 2014 couture best dressed

See the looks close up»

For many celebrities, making the rounds on the couture circuit is part of the job description. While there were plenty of A-list stars sitting front row at the latest Fall 2014 Couture week (we spotted Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Pink and Jared Leto!), five of Hollywood’s hottest actresses (who also happen to top best-dressed lists on a regular basis) stood out at the celeb-packed shows. So to celebrate the end of a stellar fashion week, we present you Queen of Fall 2014 Couture Week: A roundup of our five best dressed front row attendees, from J.Lo to KStew.

J’adore Dior’s golden girl, Charlize Theron, pretty much embodied her role as the perfume’s spokeswoman showing up in a glittering metallic-gold mini dress. And with a handsome-looking arm candy in tow (ahem, Sean Penn), we don’t see why she shouldn’t be crowned today’s Couture Queen. But fellow Dior ambassador Jennifer Lawrence, who looked particularly summery thanks to her tan, caused just as much buzz at the Fall 2014 Couture show. Dressed in her second Resort outfit of the summer, she hit all the right notes, from the textured asymmetrical hairstyle down to her two-tone accessories. And as if we couldn’t love her more, this also happened. Read more »

While there was plenty to be excited about at this morning’s Chanel Fall 2014 Couture show (like Kendall Jenner making her debut with the fashion house), all eyes were on Kristen Stewart.

Not that she doesn’t already attract a slew of cameras 24/7, but when Stewart arrived at the venue with a dramatic new haircut, you can bet photographers were all over her. Even if there was a list of notable celebrities (Jared Leto, Lily Collins, Poppy Delevingne and Nina Dobrev were there!) sitting front row, K.Stew undoubtedly got all the camera action (#sorrynotsorry). As the latest celebrity to join the short hair club, the actress styled her cropped hair in a similar manner as the couture models: textured and fuss-free – a look we know and love on her. Though we are surprised to see K.Stew still rocking her orange hair (filming for American Ultra has wrapped up), you can always count on the former Twilight star to shock us. Read more »

Mulberry launches Tessie, a more affordable (ish), equestrian-inspired line



See Mulberry’s Tessie collection here »

In the first step toward more affordable accessories, British fashion house, Mulberry has launched a lower priced handbag line inspired by equestrian saddlery.

The Tessie collection features a hobo, clutch, tote and satchel which feature soft leather detailing in either oxblood, poppy, oak or black with belt buckles and straps. Most importantly, the Tessie collection will range between $860 and $1,190, a marked difference from the brand’s typical pricing, which usually begins around $1,300 for the same size.

This new line comes after a rather difficult time for Mulberry, which issued two recent profit warnings and reported falling share prices, on top of its loss of its former CEO, Bruno Guillion. Not to mention, the brand’s notable no-show at February’s London Fashion Week after Emma Hill, the brand’s former creative director left the company.

Beauty fix: How to protect your hair this summer, a shine-free foundation that actually works and more

What exactly is a toning shampoo and what is it used for?
Toner is generally applied to hair that has been bleached in order to bring the colour down to the desired shade. A toning shampoo performs the function of a toner in a shampoo step to refresh and correct the tone of hair that has been succumbed to an undesired shade shift. John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Tone Correcting Shampoo ($14, works to tone hair colour by absorbing UV light and emitting white-blue light so that brassy tones are eliminated and your hair is returned to its former salon-fresh shade in as little as three washes.

How do I protect my hair from overexposure in the sun and keep it healthy?
Our overall efforts related to a healthy life usually incorporate intense hydration and sun protection—hair is no exception to these efforts. Keep hair hydrated with moisturizing hair masques and be sure to protect hair when in the sun either by donning a hat or using products that contain sun filters in their formulations. If you want to rewind the clock, treat your hair as you would for your face and make sure you’re treating hair to beneficial ingredients! Schwarzkopf BC Hair Therapy Time Restore Rejuvenating Spray ($18, at salons) is a leave-in spray that contains coenzyme Q10, a well-known anti-aging mainstay, which stimulates production of two keratin types that usually slow down in natural production over time. This spray will help hair remain shiny, voluminous and healthy. Read more »

Will Gisele Bündchen sing in the new Chanel No. 5 ads?


Gisele Bundchen Chanel No 5

After a brief spoken word love affair with Brad Pitt, Chanel has gone back to its roster of elegance females, casting none other than Gisele Bündchen as the latest face of the ever-iconic Chanel No.5. Set to debut later this year, Bündchen will star in a campaign directed by Baz Luhrmann, mastermind behind Nicole “I love to dance” Kidman’s campaign in 2004. Given the Aussie director’s proclivity for musicals, let’s hope Chanel No.5’s latest iteration involves singing.
