The Mission: Properly primp Miranda Kerr for her first, post-baby CFDA Fashion Awards, while respecting her eco-conscious beauty mantra.
The Face Painter: Makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift for RMS Beauty.
The Face: “I wanted to warm up Miranda’s skin and add a soft, tanned look,” says Swift, whose all-natural cosmetics line works in harmony with Kerr’s own green-leaning skincare range, Kora Organics. To give Kerr a sun-kissed glow with an allover sheen, Swift combined her RMS Beauty Uncover Up in #44, a rich caramel color, with her fan-favorite Living Luminizer, which she dotted across Kerr’s cheekbones, and the bridge of her nose to catch the light.
The Eyes: For lids that were “clean and simple,” Swift lined both the upper and lower rims of Kerr’s eyes using Lancôme Pencil Liner in Black before adding a few slashings of Shu Uemura Classic Mascara, also in black, for fluttery drama.
The Lips: Swift kept Kerr’s mouth subdued—but polished—patting her RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek pigment in Modest onto Kerr’s pout for a soft pink stain.
The Result: A wow body (Kerr did more than justice to her curve-hugging, slit-up-to-there, cutout Michael Kors gown) and the face to match.
As anyone who’s seen the paparazzi pictures of a post-baby Miranda Kerr already knows, Mrs. Orlando Bloom is more than ready to resume her role as a Victoria’s Secret model—and only a mere four months after giving birth, too. We caught up with the Balenciaga-clad new mother yesterday in between manicures, hand massages, and makeovers at L.A.’s SkyBar. On the subject of her beauty regimen, she told us: “I drink coconut water, eat coconut meat fresh from the fruit, and even use coconut oil on my body. Actually, coconut oil is great for removing makeup, too.” Turns out the exotic ingredient is one of the notes in Dream Angels Heavenly Summer, her favorite perfume from VS’ four new limited-edition olfactory offerings. “It also has peony,” she added, “my favorite all-time flower.” Kerr and her winged cohorts are beginning a North American tour today, dropping by Victoria’s Secret stores in West Hollywood, New York, Chicago, Toronto, Miami, and Dallas, promoting the company’s new Bombshell Summer collection. The new line boasts everything from balconette push-up bras to Beach Sexy Tan Enhance Shimmer Lotion, which also happens to be a part of Kerr’s routine. In addition to body brushing and exfoliating scrubs, the Australian native swears by VS’ self-tanner for “a light glow” that doesn’t require the damaging effects of sun exposure. Its tropical scent is also a lovely reminder of Kerr’s roots. “When the weather starts to heat up, it’s an exciting time because summer reminds me of Christmas [in Australia] and eating pineapple and mangos at the beach,” the Angel says. Sounds…heavenly.
Jared Leto has been named the new face of Hugo Just Different. The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and former My So Called Life heartthrob will also take over as the face of Hugo Man, which was previously fronted by Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Unclear whether his penchant for color-changing mohawks will come through in the print ads. [WWD]

Kimberly Snyder, nutritionist to stars like Fergie, Drew Barrymore, and Scarlett Johansson has a new book out and a few things to say about beauty products, as well as diet and exercise. “American women are suffocating their skin,” she says of paraben-prone product ranges. Her alternative: raw shea butter, which makes a great moisturizer. [International Business Times]
Speaking of going au naturel, Miranda Kerr is planning to expand into haircare with her organic line, KORA. For now, the Victoria’s Secret model and new mom has been using standouts from her Aussie skincare brand on her new baby, Flynn. “I love using the KORA Organics Rosehip Oil on him and sometimes mix it with the body lotion and give him little massages.” Adorable.

With a client list that reads like a call sheet for a magazine shoot (Irina Shayk, Elettra Wiedemann, Miranda Kerr), Justin Gelband is the go-to trainer for models with enviably slim and strong frames. Since launching his private coaching services a few years back, he’s devised a sequential workout that builds strength, motion, flexibility, and balance through an incredibly varied routine that fuses movements from Capoeira, yoga, dance, and mixed martial arts. The goal? Nothing short of sculpting “the ultimate woman,” as Gelband puts it. And he’s not messing around. Clients leap up onto rotating balls, twist into impossible poses using resistance bands, throw rounds of punches, and yank on cords suspended from above to mold muscle and whittle fat. Of course, scoring an appointment with Gelband isn’t exactly easy or cheap, but beginning Monday, the body sculptor and his crew will start teaching Model FIT classes, based on the aforementioned techniques, at Mushin Mixed Martial Arts in Union Square. Each 50-minute class is limited to 20 and taught by at least two trainers, who break up the class into smaller, more personalized groups to work on core and balance skills so it’s almost like getting a private session. Eager devotees looking to get to work on their bikini bodies post haste can book in advance and purchase packages—$50 per class or $400 for 10—to stay in fighting shape.
Mushin Mixed Martial Arts, 78 Fifth Ave., 2nd floor, (212) 656-1464, www.mushinnyc.com; Model FIT classes offered six days a week, starting April 18. To book in advance, call (908) 217-5181 or e-mail email@example.com.
Aside from famously swearing by Tahitian noni juice, yoga, and her own Kora Organics skincare line, expectant mother Miranda Kerr’s other beauty indulgences include makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift’s RMS Beauty line and body brushing. “[It] stimulates blood flow and exfoliates the skin,” she says. It sure does, as anyone who saw Kerr’s exquisite nude portrait in the December issue of W is well aware. [Vogue Australia]

In something of an obvious move, Allergan, the makers of Botox and Latisse, is in the process of beginning clinical trials, for—you guessed it—a hair-growth treatment based on the active ingredient its life-changing eyelash serum. Bye-bye, baldness! [Modern Medicine]
A new study contends that indoor tanning abuse is more common among women whose first experiences with the Bed came at the suggestion and with the support of their mothers. We’re all for mother-daughter bonding, but… [MSNBC]
