On Tuesday, Sept. 15, I had the opportunity to visit the backstage area at Bryant Park during Mercedes-Benz Spring ‘10 Fashion Week in New York City. There, I got an up-close-and-personal look at the hair and makeup on the Max Azria models before they hit the runway. As I watched the models get their makeup done, I was fascinated by the flawless, natural look achieved by the Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System. I tracked down the key makeup artist for Temptu, Lisa Butler, to find out how they achieved the look. “We wanted the girls to look as fresh and natural as possible,” says Butler. To complement the collection’s uncomplicated sophistication, Butler and the Temptu Pro Team used the Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System with the AIR Pod Highlighter in Champagne on low pressure to add light and sheer accents around the face, including underneath the brow bone, around the sides of the eyes, on top of the cheeks, and on the lips. Clear mascara on the lashes was the finishing touch to the simple, yet elegant look. It definitely proves that sometimes less really is more!
It’s a bird….it’s a plane….it’s a guest of the Wynn Las Vegas? Yes, this weekend, guests of the Wynn have the opportunity to fly like Superman with the two-night ZERO-G Spa Experience, thanks to the Zero Gravity Corporation. For $5,746 per person, guests can indulge in either a Custom Massage or a Classic Facial at the luxe Spa at Wynn then float on through to an unforgettable experience in the sky. On Saturday, the ZERO-G flight takes off from McCarran International Airport for a two-hour, zero-gravity flight around the Vegas Valley, which will allow people to feel the sensation of being in outer space. The FAA-approved Boeing 727 is outfitted with padded floors and walls so that guests can “fly” the length of the plane, effortlessly flip like an Olympic gymnast, or even pour water in the air to watch the droplets hover. Video cameras and a world-class photographer will be on board to capture the fun and frolicking. For those who are interested in flying high, they are in for a sublime time.
