Beauty 411: Clare Vivier’s Must-Have Candle, Lip Balm, and More


clare-vivierDesigner Clare Vivier’s career was born out of need—specifically, a personal need. While working as a journalist in France in the mid-aughts, she was unable to find a laptop case that married fashion and function. So she set about to create one herself, taking style cues aplenty from the timeless French design elements that surrounded her. And thus was born her eponymous bag line, which has, in the years since, established itself as a resource for those in search of exquisitely constructed but resolutely minimal bags—her classic fold-over clutch can be spotted tucked under many a cool-girl arm. Vivier, who besides a design career also snagged a husband while in France, now calls L.A. home, and it’s there that all of her bags are exclusively constructed and where she opened her flagship in Silverlake in 2012. (She opened a New York store in Nolita last year.) Here, the bag guru talks beauty.

THE NAIL GO-TO: Olive & June
“I don’t have as much time for mani/pedis as I would like, and mostly I stop at any neighborhood nail salon. But when I do have time, it is a real treat to go to Olive & June. It’s such a beautiful breath of fresh air in the middle of Beverly Hills.”


THE CREAM ROUTINE: Weleda and Decléor
“The natural skincare movement is huge right now in L.A., and I love that these Weleda skin creams are sans parabens and sulfates. I use three of the day creams: Rose, Iris, and Pomegranate. My skin tends to dry out from all of the traveling I do, so at night I use the Decléor Aroma Night Balm. This super-rich [formula] always soothes [my complexion] with the richest oils, and I love the calming scent.”

THE LIPSTICK MOOD LIFTER: Ilia Lipstick in Perfect Day
“Running from the studio to events and dinners can make for a long day—nothing works better as a pick-me-up like this shade from Ilia. It’s gotten me quite excited for spring.”


THE HAIR TEAM: Leanne and Lisa
“I’m lucky enough to call these two talents my friends as well as my stylists. They work magic on my hair every time…though I must admit that I took scissors to my hair myself this last time.”

See Leanne Citrone at Andy Lecompte Salon,, and Lisa at Lucas, lucas–

“I became so addicted to Rodin’s luxe lip balm that I decided I had to sell it in my stores. It’s perfect for every day and gives me the sleekest sheen on my lips.”



“Cold-pressed juices are pretty much a part of our lives here, so we have some good choices. And we are very lucky to have The Juice very close to our studio in Atwater for when I need a pick-me-up or a liquid meal. And the girls in the studio love it for a healthy afternoon fix.”


THE DESKTOP ACCESSORY: Avène Thermal Spring Water
“I travel to France quite often, and when I do, I always bring back a few Avène Thermal Spring Water sprays. It’s a staple on my desk at the office, and my son loves the feeling of a quick spritz right after school.”


THE SIGNATURE SCENT: Chateau Marmont candle
“Whenever I’m having a dinner party, nothing sets the scene quite like this Chateau Marmont candle. The mix of floral and spices is so enticing, and subtly reminds me of the iconic L.A. hotel.”


Time Capsules



There’s nothing that encourages a spa day like a holiday dinner with family. But for the many of us who will be spending the Friday after the big event shopping, digesting, or still doing dishes, there are new smoothing facial treatments from Eve Lom and Weleda that can be slathered on before any of these aforementioned activities. Both available in convenient capsule form, these pill-size doses are packed with heavy-hitting ingredients that moisturize, boost radiance, and fight fine lines. Inside the version from Weleda is a blend of four oils—rosehip seed, sweet almond, evening primrose, and peach kernel—laced with protective antioxidants and nourishing fatty acids. The capsules from Eve Lom feature tocotrienol (a variant of vitamin E that protects against free radicals) and a patented blend of six amino acids that are said to reduce wrinkle depth over time. The best part: No need to lug a bulky and spillable jar of face cream, or risk having it snagged by airport security. Take that, TSA.

The Kardashians Bottle Their Golden Glow; DD Creams Rising; And More…


First came the skincare line, then the (hotly contested) makeup line, and now the sisters Kardashian have announced plans to release a line of tanning products, called Kardashian Sun Kissed, with Ulta. Can’t stop, won’t stop. [WWD]

If you’re still trying to wrap your brain around the difference between BB and CC creams, you might want to sit down for this: DD creams are now on the horizon, too. [WWD]

Considering her knack for offering up all kinds of quick fixes when it comes to roasting a chicken, arranging flowers, and knitting a poncho, it should come as no surprise that Martha Stewart also has some great beauty tips up her sleeve. “I have a hand massage at least once a week, and it’s a serious massage,” Stewart admits. “It’s terribly important. I do not want my hands to get unnaturally bony-looking or wrinkly looking. And I do yoga hand exercises. They work.” [Allure via Huff Po]

After sending the Twitterverse into a flurry last year when she revealed a new-found love for Royal Apothic hand cream, Victoria Beckham has just dropped another beauty bomb. “The body cream I use is a really simple, inexpensive body moisturizer by Weleda,” the designer says of the German natural brand’s popular Skin Food.

Beauty And The Beat: Warpaint’s Beauty And Fashion Battle Cry


Coachella 2011 is under way in the Indio valley, which means music lovers (and hallucinogen enthusiasts) have gathered en masse for some mind-altering fun in the sun. Due to some poor planning, we couldn’t make it out west to enjoy the musical stylings of bands like Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Sleigh Bells, Animal Collective, and the Kills. We’re particularly bummed about missing Warpaint, though, L.A.’s all-girl foursome that has become something of an international phenomenon since dropping their album, The Fool, in October—their first offering since officially getting signed last year. “It’s a bit psychedelic,” bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg (pictured above, far left) says of the band’s sound, adding that it can also be “hard at times, and more aggressive.” The seemingly incongruous mix makes for quite the compelling live show, which is helped along by the fact that all four of Warpaint’s members possess that rare double threat of being both super-hot and super-talented. Put simply, these girls can rock—and they do so in relaxed, vintage duds while sporting tousled hair and the occasional bit of makeup. Here, Lindberg breaks down her special brand of “OCD” festival fashion and reveals why multivitamins are clutch for life on the road.


Being based in L.A., I’m assuming you’ve been to Coachella before. But this is your first year actually playing it. How does that feel?

I’m excited. I’ve been to Coachella many times—it’s kind of a Los Angeles festival. And we’ve been an L.A.-based band for about seven years, so it’s nice to finally be playing. Two years ago, I was on mushrooms and I was watching the Cure and crying—I had a great time. I love the Cure—I grew up listening to them. That was the one band that I had posters of all over my wall. It was really nostalgic.

Sounds like it. Are there any bands you’re psyched to see this year?

We just got off tour for a month so I haven’t decided if I’m going to stay the whole weekend. But I rented a car so I can leave when I want. I’ve never seen PJ Harvey so that could be cool. And Arcade Fire—they put on such a good live show. I’m most excited to venture into the smaller tents and listen to things I’ve never heard before.

You guys have been touring a lot recently. How does that work seeing as how it’s just girls on the bus? Do you guys share clothes and stuff?

We all just kind of get in our outfits and we end up having those clothes on for a while. There’s not really a lot of sharing. We all have our own individual style, what we like. We share makeup more than anything—like, hey, can I use your lipstick?

Lavera Goes For Gray


When you think of Europe’s noteworthy organic lines, names like Hauschka, Weleda, and Patyka usually come to mind. But perhaps it’s time to commit Lavera to your vernacular, the German company that was named “Greenest Beauty Brand in Europe” this past spring. Lavera, named after the Latin word for truth, was founded in 1987 and has grown to include more than 250 products—with organic makeup, hair care, sun care, and specialized skincare lines free of parabens and artificial fillers among its bounty. Fast becoming a favorite with Whole Foods Market regulars (ranking right up there with the pommes frites bar), the company debuts its antiaging collection this fall, introducing three different regimens meant to address preventative aging, premature aging, or mature skin, as well as a body line that provides a boost of youthful radiance where needed. Using nature to fight the natural ill effects of gravity. How’s that for German efficiency?
