Sephora House of Beauty Sephoria LA Trip

In a world of BeautyCon, Indie Beauty, FoundersMade, Ipsy… does the world need another beauty show? The answer is YES, if Sephora is rolling out the red carpet. Last night I got a preview of the first Sephora House of Beauty SEPHORIA beauty event which takes place this weekend at the Majestic Downtown in LA. Featuring endless stands of brands carried by Sephora gifting samples, and offering one of a kind beauty experiences and endless photo opps. And the talent!!!!!! Jen Atkin, Dr. Dennis Gross, Chrissy Teigen (for BECCA), Charlotte Tilbury, Mario Dedivanovic, aka @makeupbymario (for Laura Mercier), Dr. Murad all offering masterclasses… see full list HERE.

There’s an outdoor space featuring Glamglow, It Cosmetics, Viktor+Rolf and Gucci fragrances and the giant La Mer bottle you can go inside of (it’s insane!), then go inside the Majestic for 3 floors of brand activation and mini shops, and master classes.

Celebrating World Oceans Day with La Mer and Oceana

Inside World Oceans Day with La Mer

In honor of World Oceans Day 2011, luxury skincare brand, La Mer donated $200,000 to Oceana, the world’s largest international ocean advocacy organization to help protect and raise awareness for our water systems. Additionally, La Mer partnered with Soundwalk, the international collective that offers audio tours, by creating the Seven Seas Sound Mix; an iPhone and iPad application featuring interviews with seven notable ocean enthusiasts, (leading solo sailor Samantha Davies; adventurer/environmentalist David de Rothschild of the Plastiki expedition; actress/director, Melanie Laurant; actor Liu Ye; actress Rinko Kikuchi; designer Philippe Starck; and world champion free diver Guillaume Nery), who describe their love for the sea and offer an exploratory experience though seven different bodies of water.

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder

I was pleased although not completely surprised that Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder (appearing in quite the spiffy hat) were there. As I learned from his speech at The First Amendment Party in DC, Ian is quite the environmentalist! (He even has his own foundation: http://www.isfoundation.com/).

In true La Mer fashion, it was an elegant affair, and just the excuse I needed to put on a cocktail dress and bare the rain… again (enough with the rain already!). Hosted at Affirmation Arts, the space was a cocktail party meets art exhibit with images of the seven featured environmentalists hanging on the surrounding walls. Unique but unbelievably tasty hors d’oeuvres were served (it was very sashimi meets raw vegetables health heavenly-ness) –with the ever so appreciated complimentary handsome, male wait staff.

Additional guests in attendance included Molly Sims, Kerry Washington, Theodora Richards, Rachel Roy, and Nora Zehetner.

Lara’s Latest Skincare Obsessions

Woowzer! There are some great new skincare products on the market. I’m constantly amazed by all of the new technology and natural resources brands are discovering (and testing!) to keep our skin looking vibrant and youthful. Here’s what I’m currently obsessing over!

1. KORRES Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Antiwrinkle Eye Cream $42

An instant-lift eye cream that is clinically proven to fights wrinkles, increase elasticity, and reduce puffiness and dark circles. I feel much more awake after application and love the texture and feel –it soaks right into my skin! Plus it’s rich in antioxidants and free of parabens and sulfates.

2. Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Youth Regenerating Cream – $60

This hydrating cream is formulated with a rare “Resurrection Flower” which re-awakens cellular activity and reduces lines and wrinkles while improving firmness. At first I didn’t understand what all the hype was all about, the unusual texture (it’s a little waxy) through me off. Then I got a tip to rub the product in between my finger prior to patting it only skin and now I’m loving the absorption and results.

3. La Mer The Regenerating Serum – $250

This anti-aging, lightweight elixir harnesses skins natural production of collagen, elastin and reduces the appearance of pores, lines and wrinkles. It smells divine, quickly absorbs onto skin and is not the least bit tacky. My skin
