My favorite part about being a beauty director is helping women feel better about themselves (playing with products is a close second). None of us are perfect but I’ve learned a few insider beauty tricks over the years that I love to share. Those of you who live in the tristate area can come get them first hand. On Thursday, August 7th, I’ll be at the Clarins’ counter at Saks Fifth Avenue from 12pm-7pm chatting with women just like you! For the past few years, I’ve participated in Beauty Editor Day and it’s always an amazing experience. Whether you want a new makeup look (I’m the master at smoky eyes!), need skin care advice (on zits to wrinkles) or just want to ask me your burning beauty questions, book a 20-minute appointment here. Participants get a cool free gift but even more exciting, the proceeds from your $30 session go toward Look Good Feel Better, a charity that helps cancer patients regain confidence during and after treatment. Post-consultation, you’ll look gorgeous and feel great, I promise. Hope to see you there!

Let the countdown begin: today marks just four weeks until Memorial Day weekend (the unofficial start of summer), which means it’s time to buckle down and get your bikini body on. Feeling anxious at the thought of slipping on your two-piece? Don’t freak out—Clarins has joined forces with celeb workout favorite, Barry’s Bootcamp, to help you reach your slim-down goal. Together, they’ve developed a series of video tutorials available on Clarins YouTube channel that combine simple, fat-burning exercises developed by International Celebrity Fitness Expert Joey Gonzales. Shoot to do each move for one minute a day for a week. As you get better at each move, you can increase the time by 30 seconds. To maximize the intensity of each move, buy a Barry’s Bootcamp Booty Band here for $9. The first video will be available today, with subsequent videos on each Monday for the next three weeks. And to really amp up your results, slather on Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control ($68, clarins.com), which when applied using the company’s customized technique—the Clarins Self-Massage Body Countouring Method—the new slimming lotion traps fatty tissue, stimulates circulation and encourages the elimination of excess water and lipids for less visible cellulite and firmer skin. Do this daily—trust us, you’ll want to (it’s pampering) and you’ll have a hotter body and smoother skin come summertime!

In keeping with Melanoma Awareness Month, we’re divulging the best facial sunscreen we’ve ever encountered: Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen SPF 40. Pricey, yes, but the titanium-dioxide based formula is natural, non-irritating, feels like silk, blends seamlessly and undetectably—and has a soft baby-powder-but-better scent that we can’t get enough of. Most important of all, we actually look forward to applying it every morning. What’s your go-to SPF?
