The cult of French pharmacy skincare product devotees is already vast and continually growing its ranks, thanks to the pioneering ways of many a makeup artist, model, and editor singing the products’ praises back home. Thus, items like Créaline cleanser, the watery wonder that removes all traces of makeup; Avibon, a.k.a. Retin-A light; and the dense, intensely hydrating Embryolisse Miracle Cream have gained favor far beyond their French birthplace. And chief among the favorite pharmacy exports, Nuxe’s Huile Prodigieuse, a dry oil with a multitude of purposes: part face moisturizer, part hair smoother, part body glow inducer. Though Nuxe, the two-decade-old natural skincare line founded by Aliza Jabès in the early nineties, has plenty more goodness for beauty Francophiles to appreciate, the oil remains the hero. Here, the woman who dreamed up Nuxe shares some of her own beauty favorites just in time for Paris fashion week.
THE MANI MECCA: OPI Nail Bar
“I always go to the OPI Nail Bar in the famous and so chic French department store Le Bon Marché. They are the best. I love Here Today…Aragon Tomorrow for my pedicure, and Essie Mademoiselle or Chanel beige 515 for my manicure.”

THE MASSAGE: Spa Nuxe
“When I need to feel deeply relaxed, body and mind, I go for a Watsu session in the pool of our Spa Nuxe. It’s a unique experience based on the therapeutic properties of hot water and Shiatsu massage, all while [submerged]. And the luxurious spa, located in the historic center of Paris, is the ideal place to escape after a busy day.”

THE GROCERY SPOT: Naturalia
“I’ve always preferred a diet filled with fruits, vegetables, cereals, and seeds, so my favorite place to shop is Naturalia. I love to [peruse] their large selection of organic products.”

THE COIFF PRESERVER: Leonor Greyl
“I like going to the Leonor Greyl Institute for their personalized and tailor-made treatments like the Hair Spa. They use natural formulas and relaxing techniques that help restore natural beauty and health to my hair in just one hour.”

THE DE-STRESS DESTINATION: Corsica
“When I travel for pleasure, I often choose a spa vacation to ensure my holiday is 100 percent Zen. I’m particularly fond of the south of Corsica—it’s wild and precious with breathtaking landscapes, and the local people have a true generosity. My favorite spot is the Hotel Don Cesar in Porto Vecchio. The magical green setting is perfect, and I can enjoy nature and complete serenity.”

THE FITNESS REGIMEN: Jogging
“It helps me de-stress and it’s the easiest sport to practice when you constantly travel like I do. I just need my running shoes and a light outfit and I’m off. Running also always allows me to discover each city in an original way.”
THE SKINCARE MUSTS
“I have a deep connection to my first product, Huile Prodigieuse. I call it my cosmetics baby. This oil makes everything better, from hair to toes—it is my desert island product. For the face I put some drops in my daily cream to nourish and protect my skin, then on the body I apply it in circular movements to hydrate. After washing my hair I put some drops in my conditioner, then leave it on for ten minutes for a soft and shiny finish. I also use Nuxellence Jeunesse, an innovative antiaging creation that helps maintain a daily radiance.”

THE MAKEUP ROUTINE
“I like makeup to be chic but natural. The best foundation is from By Terry; it really provides even coverage and the most perfect finish. For lips, I love By Terry Terrybly in Hot Cranberry, and for my eyes I create a smoky eye look with By Terry Terrybly Brown Stellar liner and the new Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara.”
THE HAIR LINE OF CHOICE: Davines
“Davines has been my favorite product line for a long time. I follow their philosophy—it’s not only respectful to the environment but effective for my hair.”

We had an internal debate this morning over whether or not it was too early to start talking about sparkly makeup, but the Elf on the Shelf toys we saw in a shop window on our way to the office made it abundantly clear that the time to embrace the holiday spirit is now. So, without further ado, we’d like to direct your attention to a new crop of limited-edition illuminating face powders now available for your buffing pleasure. For the third season in a row, Clé de Peau has released a new rendition of its Palette Vintage, a medley of shimmering pigments in white, rose, and yellow gold. The expertly embossed modular design makes it easy to concentrate your application on one gilded shade or use a blush brush to glide over all of the different sections for dimensional highlights. Guerlain has also stepped up its game with the Parure de Nuit Powder, a compilation of pale pink, white, deep pink, and blue green shades that doubles as both an iridescent powder (when applied with a vertical brush swipe) and a blush (when applied with a horizontal brushstroke). But our favorite way to add subtle sparkle to our complexion just might be By Terry’s limited-edition Terrybly Or Rose. Twenty-four karat pink gold microparticles and finely milled pearls are scattered on top of Terry de Gunzburg’s classic ultra-correcting compact foundation, so that once you tire of glimmering cheekbones and the like come January, you’ll be left with just the face-sculpting formula that imparts coverage and matte definition. It’s multitasking at its best.
Love her or hate her, you must admit there’s something compelling about Jennifer Aniston—no, we’re not talking about her personal life here (nor her GQ cover, for that matter). She’s pretty much got the rom-com thing nailed and has been enjoyable in other, less predictable on-screen formats as well (two words: Office Space). We attribute her success to her girl-next-door, all-American, plain-and-simple-but-still-sexy appeal. According to makeup artist Angela Levin, who readied Ms. Aniston for the Marley & Me premiere last night in L.A., the actress’ all-natural look is 100 percent intentional: “She just wants to look and feel great and happy.” Us too—she is so relatable! See below for Levin’s tips on how to put it all together:
To prep Aniston’s face, Levin used By Terry Lift and Stretch antioxidant serum around her eyes to smooth skin before applying just a touch of Lorac Natural Performance Foundation in NP6. To add a bit of sun-kissed contour, Levin used Rimmel’s Sun Shimmer in medium matte and brushed Bobbi Brown’s Bronzing Powder from Aniston’s temples along her cheekbones. For a rosy glow on the apples of Aniston’s cheeks, Levin mixed a Chanel Crème Lipstick in Coco Red with a hydrating lip treatment and a dab of Sephora Blush Me! in Rose Rebelle 1.
For some (very) understated drama, Levin blended Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Silvery toward the outer corners of Aniston’s eyes, using the same product in Slate on the lids. She topped this off with Nars Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Violetta on the center of the lids and under the lower lashes as a light smoky liner.
With access to a whole host of professional and as-yet-unreleased goodies, Levin dipped into her arsenal and treated Aniston’s lips to Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2009 Glossimer in Mica.
