We missed you guys last week! We were both traveling, but you know we wouldn’t come back without plenty of stories and beauty news for you. Jess was in Montauk, New York, with the personal care company Unilever, and she discovered a drugstore shampoo that impressed all the jaded beauty editors. Then Jenn talks about her trip to Copenhagen, where she got to hang out with skincare expert Ole Henriksen, who is Kardashian-famous in Denmark. You may think you know his claim to fame, but do you really?
We also talk about how mainstream men's makeup has become. And, lastly, we weigh in on the charcoal skincare trend: Does it really work? And how the hell does it get "activated"?
Our interview this week is with makeup artist turned beauty editor turned makeup artist turned women's advocate Emily Kate Warren. She shares her favorite products and crazy stories of what it's like behind the scenes of big advertising photo shoots. Plus, she tells us all about boxcar+muse, a safe space (in L.A., but expanding soon!) for women to learn, grow, and make the world a better place.
