The Beauty Makeover

HOT BEAUTY LINE
Two-plus years in the making, Burberry’s new makeup line is befitting of the house’s long history. Classic as the trench coat and modern as Burberry chief creative director Christopher Bailey’s designs, Burberry Beauty is a complete collection—foundation, brushes, color, mascara—with a palette inspired by the English countryside (think shades of heather, gray, beige and rose) and housed in packaging embossed with the iconic brand’s signature plaid. “We’ve done every single facet of the project as part of the Burberry world,” says Bailey of the “disheveled elegance” the beauty collection embodies. “It’s such a natural extension of everything we’ve been doing.” Find it exclusively at Nordstrom flagship stores and burberry.com.

HOT HAIR PRODUCT
Heat styling, extensions, frequent coloring, sun-exposure: Any of those can turn otherwise healthy hair into something that more closely resembles straw. Fortunately, there’s Moroccanoil—a line of argan oilinfused products that aim to undo that kind of damage. “Argan oil helps heal the hair,” says Moroccanoil’s artistic director, Antonio Calero. “And it provides UV protection. When you go to the pool or the beach, color always fades a bit. By using the line, your color is protected and will stay longer.” Moroccanoil is reported to have several A-list fans, including Madonna, Salma Hayek and Debra Messing— all known for gorgeous and healthy tresses. Look for Moroccanoil products at the new and incredibly hip Essensuals London hair salon next to Fred Segal on Melrose—the US flagship of the London-based brand. 8126 Melrose Ave., LA; essensualslondon.com —A.M.G.
If you’re not ready to go under the knife just yet, we recommend the CryoStem Cell Therapy Facial at Dr. Gabriel Chiu’s überchic Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery office. The treatment is one of the latest and greatest breakthroughs in the antiaging revolution and involves the topical application of a cryogenic and bioactive stem-cell serum. The existing skin replicates the condition of the new cells, and aged and damaged skin actually becomes younger and firmer. The effect of the stem cells peaks several days after the facial, so you’ll look even prettier as the days pass. 9454 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills; beverlyhillsplasticsurgeryinc.com
Every girl loves to get her makeup done, but most can’t afford the indulgence. Enter Paradigm talent-agency exec Lori Sale. Having experienced her fair share of awards shows and galas, Sale understands the need for talented makeup artists on short notice, which inspired her to open the Makeup & Go! salon in Brentwood. Within the bright, contemporary studio, a team of 16 artists provides makeup applications starting at just $18 (using top cosmetic lines including Smashbox and Tarte), with no appointment necessary. The salon shares space with Bubble Blow Dry, so you’re guaranteed to walk out the door red-carpet ready. 13038 San Vicente Blvd., LA; makeupandgo.net—LESLEY MCKENZIE
