THE FIND: Vogue, Marie Claire, and People StyleWatch in July
The July fashion magazines feature eco finds galore which is perfect for all the vacation travel (I’m on a four-hour train ride right now in Finland and they have wi-fi!) and poolside lounging.
Pick up People Style Watch for the Easy Eco page for fashion inspiration: the red Vitamin A recycled nylon and spandex bikini, Raven + Lily jewelry and Ashe Collection Love Bag are now on my shopping list.
Finally, read Vogue for the piece on remote eco resort Uxua in Brazil where all the food and spa treatment ingredients are natural and local and mini-size monkeys play around the property. Sounds like pure bliss.

THE FIND: Sephora Natural Makeup and Skincare
Preparing for my Finland trip, I decided to find the ultimate new products for the perfect summer radiance look. As I ended up working late, I missed ABC Carpet & Home which has a fantastic natural beauty section with exclusive brands like rms and a West Village apothecary C.O. Bigelow with Jane Iredale. I was left with Sephora (open till 9pm!).
As luck would have it, I was assisted by an adorable makeup artist-in-training who talked me out of products I already knew and introduced me to the latest and greatest of natural cosmetics. See my finds in the picture above. I was so happy with the Hourglass concealer today, that I went back to buy the tinted moisturizer. This is everything you need for the full summer radiance look. Tutorial and photos coming soon!

“To make your lips look fuller, apply your lipstick or lipgloss and then dab a little concealer on the middle of your bottom lip and right below the cupid’s bow. Blend gently with your finger!”
P.S. Loving the natural Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiaging Concealer, Annabella found it for us at Sephora.
