Tips from Allure magazine’s Beauty Editor: Part 1

February 2, 2011

Post from: Beyond the Rack


In an exclusive interview with Beyond the Rack, Allure magazine’s beauty news editor Heather Muir shares the best tips and trends for makeup, skincare products, and fragrances to look for this spring. Part 1 below, Part 2 to follow…

Q – As the beauty expert, what would you say are the biggest beauty trends for spring/summer 2011?

A – Bright, matte lips—think day-glo pink (seen at Jil Sander) and tangerine (seen at Marni)—are going to be the biggest makeup trends for spring/summer.

Q – What’s the biggest beauty blunder women make and how can they avoid it?

A – Women sometimes OD on makeup, especially foundation. Mistakes include wearing too much (so it looks cakey), wearing the wrong shade, and not blending correctly (which can result in a makeup line at the jaw). My trick: Take a few samples home so you can determine the best shade and look at your face in different lighting. Then apply it with a damp sponge (I love the Beauty Blender)—it sheers the formula out a bit and prevents it from looking like a mask.

Q – At Beyond the Rack, we’re all about designer fragrance events. Which new scent do you recommend for the upcoming season?

A – We’re loving a few designer fragrances right now: Love Chloe, Prada Infusion de Rose, and Marc Jacobs Splash in Curacao.

Q – Neon is big for spring. Any tips for women who are afraid of trying such bright makeup for the first time?

A – To ease into wearing neon colors, start with a sheer bright gloss: Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Volupté (sheer gloss sticks) deliver a splash of color in an easy-to-wear way.

Q – BTR shoppers love their labels but don’t want to break the bank. What essential beauty product for spring 2011 is affordable, too?

A – Nails are a huge spring trend and they don’t break the bank. Essie has beautiful shades that are now sold at CVS! We’re loving pearlescent white nails right now.

Stay tuned for more beauty tips and skincare essentials from Heather: Part 2 coming soon!

In the meantime, work on your glowing, youthful complexion by shopping the Biotherm event on now at BTR until February 4!
