Are you ready to blush
Are you ready to blush
Orgasm
 
Are you ready to blush?", says a distractingly beautiful woman as you enter the Truman Brewery in the heart of East London, the location for the new Nars “sensorial playground”, a three-day pop-up created in celebration of 20 years of its iconic blusher, Orgasm.
 
Opening on May 17, think of it as a fun house for adults: five interactive rooms, each dedicated to one of the senses of sight, touch, smell, sound and taste. Highlights include swinging through perfumed clouds of smoke, a merry go round photobooth and a touch-and-play latex balloon room - all designed to make you feel joyful, and maybe even a teeny bit turned on.

An interactive digital experience too, on entry you're presented with a Nars digital RFID card (a kind of oyster card for beauty) where you tap in and out of each room to collect images of yourself throughout. At the end of the tour, you will be sent all of your pictures, presented with a goodie bag and you will also be taken through the new limited-edition Orgasm capsule product collection that is launching in tandem.
 
To experience this beauty fairground is to understand its brilliance, but hurry. It's a total one-off. It won't be replicated anywhere else in the world at any other time, so go now or forever hold your peace. A perfectly pleasurable weekend activity if ever there was one.

It’s been well documented that Naomi Campbell has never fronted a beauty campaign before, despite being one of the biggest faces in the industry and an original supermodel. However, that’s about to change - the Vogue contributing editor is the new face of Nars Cosmetics for the first half of 2019.
 
“François and I are like family and the same goes for Nars. I am honoured to be a part of such an incredible brand for so long,” she said, whilst Nars himself added: “Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.”

Naomi Campbell Lands a NARS Beauty Campaign at 48

With her first campaign image (above), shot by Mr Nars and with make-up by James Kaliardos, Campbell will front the Radiance Repowered range from January 2019. The campaign will include foundation shade extensions, a new Skin Deep Eye Palette and the Super Radiant Booster. She’ll also front a new Orgasm campaign later in the year - representing an iconic product in the Nars line-up.
 
Despite not having starred in a beauty campaign before, Naomi has had a close and long relationship with François Nars, founder of the iconic make-up brand.
 
Naomi has also picked out her favourite Nars make-up products. They include the Taj Mahal Blush, Translucent Powder, Climax Mascara, 7 Deadly Sins Palette, Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Mambo Eyeliner.

Naomi Campbell has been a household name for the past three decades, but it has somehow taken this long for the supermodel to land her first beauty campaign. In what should be taken as a positive change of the times, Campbell is now the front woman of NARS' 2019 ads. Her presence is notable, not just because of the fact that she is long overdue for starring in a beauty campaign, but also because of the products she's representing: the Radiance Repowered range, which includes more inclusive foundation shades and a new Skin Deep Eye Palette, as well as the Super Radiant Booster.
 
Campbell shared the news on her Instagram page, along with the first shot from the campaign, which is of course flawless. "Very excited to be the new face of NARS Cosmetics," she wrote, adding that the campaign was "shot by my dear friend François Nars." Campbell's relationship with Nars dates way back, as she commented on in a statement about the collaboration. “François and I are like family and the same goes for Nars. I am honoured to be a part of such an incredible brand for so long,” she said, per British Vogue.
 
Nars also spoke about their long history in his own statement, saying, “Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera. She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style.”
 
The campaign isn't just personal because of Campbell's friendship with Nars, it's also because of the products she's representing. “When I first started it was hard to find colors that truly matched my skin tone,” she said in a Q&A with the brand. “I remember [François] made me my own foundation.”
 
NARS isn't the only beauty brand diversifying its offerings, a long overdue move; last year CoverGirl rolled out 40 new foundation shades, represented in ads by Insecure mastermind Issa Rae. "I remember being an awkward black girl in high school, reading the pages of my favorite magazines, casually flipping through @COVERGIRL ads, singing their slogan in my head," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "Never EVER in my life did I imagine I'd be one."

Naomi Campbell's Facialist Reveals Her Secrets to Flawless Skin

Naomi Campbell's Facialist Reveals Her Secrets to Flawless Skin
 
New aestheticians crop up all the time, but veteran Manhattan facialist Tracie Martyn’s keeps legions of loyal VIPS glowing and red-carpet-ready with customized cocktails of electrical current, LED lights and her cult line of natural products. Here, she shares her beauty secrets.
 
Why do you think your high-profile clients are loyal to you?
Many of them have been coming to me for more than 15 years. I am sure there are a variety of factors, but perhaps one is my Resculptor microcurrent machine, which I complement with new, non-invasive technologies as they emerge. (I think I was one of the first facialists in New York to use LED lights, for example.) My signature treatment is probably the Red Carpet Facial, which takes 60 minutes and is packed with every non-invasive beauty trick there is, including state-of-the-art diamond tip microdermabrasion and peptide-enriched oxygen mist. In it, I combine current from the Resculptor machine with red LED lights, a cocktail that increases cellular energy (ATP) and therefore theoretically enhances every key process in the skin, including collagen and elastin formation. It also tones the facial muscles in a gentle but effective way and enhances circulation. The other key component in this facial is a pulsating amber light that helps stop collagen-destroying enzymes called MMPs, and instantly brightens and calms the skin. On the other end of the spectrum is my Purple Ray Facial, which I developed in order to address signs of aging, especially around the eye area, and simultaneously fight break-outs caused by excessive make-up application, diet, hormones, or stress. It’s super popular with models who need a few extractions and purification on top of lifting.
 
Can you name names?
I’ve been lucky enough to work with Kate Winslet, Diane Von Furstenberg, Brandon Maxwell, Naomi Campbell, Hilary Rhoda, Kenya Kinski-Jones, Lindsey Wixson and Famke Janssen, Rihanna, Georgia Jagger, Allison Williams and Jessica Chastain among many others.
 
What skincare advice do you give your clients?
Petrochemicals like parabens, phthalates, and ethoxylated surfactants (like polysorbate) are like ticking time bombs, so the message is clear: go pure, safe and clean, but at the same time don't waste your time with products that don't address your skin concerns- acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, lack of elasticity, rosacea or whatever bothers you. We pioneered our high-performance, natural skincare line as an alternative to high-tech products that are effective, but filled with dangerous petrochemicals, and the kind of low-performing natural products you find in health food stores. No one, apart from us and a handful of our more enlightened Hollywood clients, really cared about being natural or organic when we launched our line, but I think as the concept of wellness has become more popular, there is a new appreciation for my work, which has always been safe, non-invasive and holistic, yet scientifically advanced enough to deliver fast and reliable results in an HDTV and Selfie era.
 
Do you ever give clients nutritional advice?
I can’t help myself! Before becoming a facialist, I was a makeup artist, and even back then I tried to persuade models to trade in their fast food for green juice (way before Juice Press!). I’m also a certified yoga instructor, so I would also try to inspire them to practice. I still bump into colleagues from my fashion days who thank me for introducing them to their first bowl of quinoa. I explain to my clients why wheat and dairy are not on my food list, why they should watch their chocolate intake and why they should avoid certain nuts in order to keep beautiful, clear skin. They can prolong the results of my facials by avoiding sodium-filled foods (which can lead to water retention and puffiness) and high-glycemic-index carbs, which can grow you a double chin if you are predisposed genetically. The best advice is to pay attention to your body, see if you break out. Science is great, but even better when combined with intuition, experience and self-awareness.
 
Any key supplements we should be taking for young-looking skin?
There is a nutrient in dairy and meat called carnitine, an amino acid derivative that is very important for energy metabolism. It transports fat into the mitochondria (the cellular energy "power plant") so they can be oxidized ("burned") to produce energy. We feel that part of the aging process is the "chronic fatigue" that the cells experience, so we developed a supplement with this key nutrient called CarniLift. With sufficient energy (ATP in western terminology, Qi in Traditional Chinese Medicine), everything works better.
What other gurus or wellness professional do you send your clients to?
Detox is very important, especially for people who are a bit slower to get on the clean-diet bandwagon. When people ask me for help, I recommend a green-juice cleanse, alkalizing foods and a series of colonics. Mera Chritis has been doing colon hydrotherapy for 20 years, and is something of a miracle worker. She practices the gravity method, and in addition to filtered water, incorporates organic coffee, chlorophyll, herbs and essential oils in her sessions. For acupuncture, I recommend Paul Kempisty. He is very knowledgeable, but also has a great sense of humor.
 
What kind of workout are you into at the moment?
As I mentioned, I’m a certified yoga teacher, and while I don't teach, I do practice every day. I also love Pilates and go to Nicole at The Pilates Boutique weekly, and occasionally I get to do a SoulCycle session with the amazing Laurie Cole.

Naomi Campbell Is the Star of a New Nars Cosmetics Campaign
 
Naomi Campbell and Nars? That's one powerhouse beauty partnership. The legendary supermodel has just been announced as the new face of Nars' 2019 Spring Campaigns. According to Nars, this is Campbell's third campaign with the brand. She also appeared in campaigns in 2004 and 1996. 
 
Her first campaign with the brand for 2019, titled Radiance Repowered, is centered around radiant skin.
 
"Naomi is a living icon and brings such strong personality to the camera," François Nars said in an announcement posted on Instagram. "She and I are like family. I have known her since the very beginning of her career. From the start, I have admired her, her beauty, and her style."
 
François Nars also noted in a release that it was important to have a woman of color as the face of the brand's new campaigns. "My choice to use models of color such as… Naomi Campbell… was a deliberate one. I feel that makeup is universal and should apply to everybody. I didn’t want to create a makeup line for one ethnic group. It had to be multi-ethnic. To me, beauty is beauty. It doesn’t matter what color the skin is."
 
Campbell is one of the most distinguished and celebrated supermodels of our time (and probably the first person that pops into your head when you say '90s supermodel), so this collaboration with Nars, a favorite backstage during Fashion Month and a brand known for delivering products that perform, is a perfect match.

Hair extensions are a great hair accessory
Hair extensions are a great hair accessory
 
Hair extensions are a great hair accessory. They allow you to try a new ‘do with little commitment. You can go from long to short or short to long and back again. You can experiment with colors or textures different from your own. Or you can use them to add volume to beef up a skimpy mane.
 
Some women wear extensions as a protective style while transitioning from chemically processed hair to their natural hair texture, so as not to compromise their healthy hair goals in the process. “The trend of wearing curly/textured extensions really ties into the overall natural hair movement and the desire by women to have options that fit within, rather than disrupt, their personal style choices,” says Ngozi Opara, certified hair manufacturer and founder of Heat Free Hair.
 
Others, such as celebrities, models and entertainers may wear extensions as a protective means to shield their hair from the daily stresses that it endures on a film set, photo studio or stage. Whatever your reasons for wearing extensions, choosing the right type for your needs and maintaining them properly is key.

hair extension considerations
“The first thing you should do when considering getting extensions is that you should have a consultation with a professional hairstylist who specializes in extensions to determine the best match for your hair and desires. Bring in reference photos. You should have an idea of the style that you want and you can discuss with the stylist the best types of hair you would need,” says Amoy Pitters of Amoy Couture, a celebrity extension expert whose star clientele includes Joan Smalls, Naomi Campbell and Chanel Iman.
 
Depending on the type of extensions that you get, they can either last you a few months or a few days.

Tips for Maintaining Your Hair Extensions
Treat your hair extensions the way you would your real hair
Treat your hair extensions the way you would your real hair
 
Treat them the way you would your real hair. “Naturally textured virgin hair extensions should be treated and cared for the same way you’d treat your own natural hair. Regularly washing, moisturizing and detangling your textured hair extensions is key to extending the life of the hair,” advises Opara.
 
Dry your hair well. Hair that hasn’t been dried properly can lead to scalp issues, including fungal ones. So if you have thick hair, be sure to clip your hair in sections and dry your braided sections thoroughly.
 
Don’t neglect your real hair. “Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed,” warns Pitters.
 
Remove them in a timely fashion. Extensions will damage your hair if left in too long. Pitters recommends redoing interlock sew-ins every 6 weeks and the braided sew-in version every 8 to 10 weeks.
 
Avoid oils. If you have glue-on bonded extensions, oils will break down the extension glue. And that is something that you don’t want to happen until you are ready to remove your pieces.
 
Take a break now and then. Allow your natural hair and scalp to breathe from time to time. Relieve the stress placed on your hair and scalp by waiting a week or two after removal of your extensions before getting them replaced.
