I love, love, love Renée Rouleau.  She really is one of my favorite skincare experts, so I always love to read her tips.  (Like sometimes I want to travel to Texas just to visit her spa.)

Skincare Tips:  Travel & Your Skin

Have you recently flown or are you planning on taking a vacation in the near future? Worried about the airplane giving your skin trouble? Skin Care Expert & Licensed Celebrity Esthetician, Renée Rouleau offers helpful tips to keep skin healthy and balanced before, during and after taking flight.

Survey Says… March 17th, 2010

  • What’s your favorite everyday look?
  • What’s your favorite special occasion look?
  • What’s your favorite evening look?


  • What’s your favorite everyday look? I love an antique gold wash on the lid with a bronzy-taupe in the crease paired with soft coral cheeks and lips.
  • What’s your favorite special occasion look? I have to go with vibrant, bright red lips… like Chanel Dragon!
  • What’s your favorite evening look? I feel like I’m boring you, but I like smoky eyes.  I like subtly smoky eyes in gray or brown, maybe a little color if appropriate, and a pinky-nude lip.
