Dear by Renée Skin Renewal Serum (79.95,

Growth factors, which are found naturally in the skin, promote elastin and collagen formation. Sadly as we age, these growth factor levels drop, but Dear by Renée Skin Renewal Serum contains Bio-Placenta, which is a naturally derived growth factor inducing product. It’s a smaller and much more sophisticated delivery system by using growth factors in order to implement change on a deeper level. Clinical studies show that these 5 growth factors can diminish visible wrinkling by 46%, increase skin elasticity by 47%, and increase skin hydration by 64%. – Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Dendy Engelman


Arbonne RE9 Advanced Prepwork Cleansing Polish ($32,

“The Arbonne RE9 Advanced Prepwork Cleansing Polish has exfoliating ingredients but is still gentle on the skin. It’s vegan, gluten free, and allergy tested, and contains ingredients such as ceramides to improve hydration. Whereas some exfoliating cleansers can only be used 1-2 times a week, the Prepwork Cleansing Polish can be used daily on most skin types without causing irritation.” – Dermatologist, Dr. Naissan O. Wesley, MD, FACMS Arbonne Scientific Advisory Board Member

NeoCell Berry Lemon Super Collagen ($39.95,

“I love NeoCell’s new Berry Lemon Super Collagen! Great for people who have smoothies in the morning. I start all my patients that are concerned with signs of skin thinning such as creepy skin and skin laxity on it at least 4 weeks before we do in office procedures and continue after the procedure to boost collagen regeneration.” – Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Julie Russak


Paris Jackson and Elsa Hosk for Oscars Vanity Fair After Party

The Look Breakdown:

  • Skin Prep: Using a steamy face cloth I compressed it against her skin to open up the pores and soften the dry skin cells on the surface of her skin. I applied Dear by Renée® Gentle Facial Scrub in circular motion around her face to buff away the dead skin cells. It made such a difference and she loved how clean and smooth her face felt afterwards. This helps the skincare sink in easily instead of having to try and fight its way through layers of unwanted grime. I then applied Dear by Renée® Ultra-Firming Eye around her cheekbones and upwards through her brow area for an instant hydrating lift and increased radiance.  With this harsh changeable winter weather, I wanted to treat Paris lips with something new… the Dear by Renée® Microdermabrasion Exfoliant. This really helped loosen up the uneven rough skin texture and soften her lips overall! Great tip especially when wearing a pale nude lip!! (I also used it on the tops of my hands for an instant hand makeover!!). On Paris’s face, I applied Dear by Renée® Youth Hydra Serum – a lightweight serum jam-packed with hyalaronic acid and marine collagen. Glides on, sinks in quickly and stays moisture packed and protecting skins surface for hours underneath makeup!!

  • Skin/Cheeks: Because I spent a long time prepping Paris’s Skin foundation was barely needed. I dotted some of Nars Radiant concealer around her face and blended it in with my fingers tips- for a natural and luminous finish. I buffed some Cream Bronzer by Tom Ford across the apples of her cheeks to enhance her natural skin tone and to show off her naturally beautiful skin.

  • Eyes: I was so lucky to be given an exclusive sneak peek of PatMCgrath Labs latest Spring collection!!!! THRILLED to be exact!  One palette stood out to me as soon as I opened it! The Bright Pink Palette captivated me with a pinky, rose gold, bold purple, mauve and gold tones! I applied the Iridescent Rose Gold shadow named “Pale Fire” across Paris’s eyelid. This color is exactly as the name would have you believe… a soft coral flame pastel tone with shimmering pink undertones stunning. I winged out the corner of her eyes “Versace style” using the Matte Eyeshadow “Paranormal”. This flat Mauve tone was perfect to shape and create the desired shape… but wanting more drama and additional magic on her eyes, I swept several layers of “Euphoria” on top!! Euphoria is a heavenly Heather Lilac Shimmer shadow and added the perfect haze of lavender loveliness – Paris and I were mesmerized staring at the two colors married together!!  I finished this swept metallic shadow look off with a generous application of Sisley So Curl Mascara in Blacktop and bottom lashes for a sooty and striking lash finish!

  • Lips: In keeping with the Versace mood… we went for a pale satin finish beige nude lip using Nars “Embrace Moi”

The Look Breakdown:

  • Face: Shades m1 and L4 in NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and Cle de Peau Beauté concealer in shades 3 and 4 were all buffed into the skin with a fluffy foundation brush. Highlighter was gently swiped on the high points of the cheekbones and inner eye corners.

  • Cheek: A combination of Benefit’s Hoola Lite Bronzer and Kevyn Aucoin’s Neo-bronzer in Siena warm coral were used to define her cheekbones and bring warmth and dimension to the face.

  • Eyes: Elsa’s eyelids were primed with urban decays 24/7 Glide-on eye pencil in YeYo, blended with a fluffy eye brush and then set with INGLOT’s Pure Pigment Eye Shadow in shade 118. INGLOT’s Black gel eyeliner in shade 77 was used with an angled eyeliner brush to apply a thin winged liner to elongate and enhance Elsa’s natural eye shape. Lashings of mascara were applied to the top and bottom lashes and then separated with a comb to provide a fluttery flirty eyelash.

  • Lips: To top the look off, Kevyn Aucoin’s Flesh Tone Lip Pencil in Cerise was used to define and fill in Elsa’s lips for a rosey red pout, topped off with Charlotte Tilburys lipstick in red carpet red.

5 Simple Tips to Maintain Healthy, Glowing Skin this Fall/Winter

With chilly temps on the way the battle for healthy, glowing skin officially begins. To beat winter beauty woes like dryness and a lack luster complexion, your skincare routine will require some extra TLC and loads of hydration.


A hot, steamy shower can leave your mind peaceful but your body parched. Instead of stripping away natural oils limit it to five minutes, and suds up with a body wash; then, seal with an oil infused lotion. Try The Mane Choice Heavenly Halo Oil+Lotion and Body Wash set ($14.99 each; Infused with soy and multivitamins to restore and hydrate skin by protecting against moisture loss.


Proper exfoliation prevents the skin from developing a dull appearance – Especially during the colder seasons. Using an exfoliator once a week can provide an instantly rejuvenated skin tone. Try the Dear by Renée® Gentle Facial Scrub ($49.95, This gentle gel-based scrub contains Jojoba microbeads which sweeps away dead skin cells, refines surface texture and helps decongest skin.


Bring a little magic to your complexion by dabbing a shimmery cream highlighter onto the cheekbones, inner corners of your eyes, and brow bones. To draw out the warmer tones in darker skin, opt for a gold shade. If you’re fair, pink tones will impart a natural glow. Try Arbonne Starlight Glow Palette ($75, which contains an array of warm to cool powder pigments or Arbonne Sheer Glow Highlight Stick ($50, a multi-purpose highlight stick containing a Pearl shade to highlight and Bronze to give an effortless glow.


It might be tempting to stash your sunscreen away until next summer, but it’s necessary to wear year-round if you want your complexion to look its best. Slather on the SPF 365 days a year for skin that’s healthy enough to glow naturally! Try Arbonne RE9 Advanced Restorative Cream SPF 20 Sunscreen ($66, The concentrated formula protects against UVA/UVB rays and contains collagen-supporting ingredients!


Hydration masks are a key to giving your skin the nutrients it craves in order to reveal an enviable glow! Try Dear by Renée® Pomegranate Hydrating Mask ($49.95, the unique gel-based formulation leaves skin super moisturized and glowing with Aloe Vera Leaf and Mushroom Extracts to nourish and soften skin.
