Dark, under-eye circles are our greatest enemy. And while lack of sleep and the go-go-go lifestyle can definitely be attributed to their presence, the unfortunate truth is that they’re often hereditary. So even if you’re able to cram in 10 hours of sleep a night,...

The eyes are certainly the window to our soul. They mesmerize and tease, just like a burlesque dancer, and they have the power to fill us with great desire and joy. When we think of the eyes, we think of countless actresses who have charmed...

When the temperatures escalate, your makeup needs to remain in place. There's no point in you applying your eyeshadow, lipstick and foundation oh so carefully in the morning only to have them evaporate like desert clouds by noon. So, how can you keep your color on...

Friday marked the advent of a very special day in New York City with the CEW Beauty Awards, the industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. There were winners, losers and best of all, there was Mario Cantone, the irrepressibly witty and charming MC of the Awards Ceremony (and one of the SATC2 stars) who was presented with his own Beauty Award. The 16th Annual Beauty Awards crowned 31 different products as winners in several categories, spanning from masstige to prestige. In addition to the standard categories, the effervescent Indie Award went to Living Proof, a brand near and dear to my heart because the products have a tendency to make your hair resemble Amber Valleta’s. The celebrities who presented the awards were drool-worthy too. From Malan Breton, Idol finalist Anoop Desai, Supermodel Selita Ebanks, Estelle, Mark Indelicato to Kim Kardashian and Whitney Port, the awards ceremony did not lack star power. Indeed, when the audience applauded, stars fell out of their hands. Now, let’s talk about the beauty winners, shall we? We were not surprised at all to see stars like Vaseline Sheer Infusion with Stratys-3 win the Body Treatment Masstige category because the technology of that product is pretty revolutionary. Nor did we bat an eyelash when Lancome’s Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate won in the Anti-Aging Prestige Category because– let’s face it – if a product can capture the power of your youthful genes it deserves to have its own country named after it. We have always been crazy about Lancome’s Oscillation Powerbooster Primer and were thrilled with Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain won in the prestige lip product category. Living Proof’s success is well deserved. The Indie company really understands hair issues and attitude with its groundbreaking anti-frizz technology (the brains behind the brand is an MIT professor, Dr. Bob Langer…need we say more?). So what was one of the upsets? According to Ron Robinson, cosmetic chemist and founder of BeautyStat.com, one of the biggest upsets was that “Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash did not win because the technology was quite strong.” It lost the crown to Olay Body Wash Plus Tone Enriching Ribbons. Another upset in our eyes was that Garnier Skin Renew Awakening Face Moisturizer won in the mass category over Olay Pro-X SPF 30. Beauty Trends at CEW
