A Handsome Newfound Love...*kyoku.





Happy one more time, as for the past who knows how many seasons, to be directing beauty at the Carlos Campos' Fall/Winter 2011-12 fashion presentation. As a makeup artist, you are always looking for the ideal makeup/skin care sponsor to go hand-in-hand with the designer's vision; for example, the minimalist designer paired with the minimalist makeup line, and so forth. Well, this season I have made a match in heaven, Carlos Campos and *kyoku for men, my newfound love!

*kyoku for men is man's man line. Founded by Asim Akhtar, the son of one of the founders of StriVectin, *kyoku was inspired by the healthy living of the people of Yuzuri Hara, a village just about two hours outside of Tokyo, Japan. In this village, diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's are simply non-existent. But, the added bonus of living in Yuzuri: flawless skin.

The skin care line is infused with amazing ingredients like bamboo extract to pump up your skin's hyaluronic acid (the stuff babies have abundantly in their skin, hence their soft derriere
) and volcanic ash for deep detoxification of the skin. It's like having a going-away-detox-program but at home, like Charlie Sheen sans lost episodes of "Two and a Half Men", twitching and texting.



Those who know me well are aware that I'm not a morning person, although I'll definitely wake up happy for some "sake infused shave cream." Oh yeah! One of my favorite products from *kyoku. You bet I'll follow up with some extra Mimosas and I'll be a happy morning-er.


The eye fuel? A double whammy. A winner! One pump bottle that divides into two separate chambers: one pumps the uplifting eye gel and the other the eye radiance creme. Voila! No tired glances at the show.

I hope you can join me this Saturday, February 12th, for the Carlos Campos' Fall/Winter 2011-12 fashion presentation at Exit Art (remember to RSVP). We'll be having fun, for sure, and the men will definitely be that man's man all women want and men want to emulate.

I have to say, I'm in love with *kyoku for men. I hope you fall in love too!

Oh! Soon to come exclusively at Barney's NY.
