editor’s letter

I’m in the business of giving advice—gleaned from the amazing experts we work with every issue and my own years of experience. So when it comes to the advice that starts to circulate around the beginning of a new year, I’ve heard it all—or so I thought. Then I sat down to read “Joy of the Jump Start” (page 110), and I found myself taking notes. Not editing, not commenting, but actually pecking notes into my phone. Because the advice was THAT GOOD. And I’m a tough customer. There are many ways to approach January 1: fresh start, penance for December, just another date on the calendar. But going into the new year excited to embark on a venture that will make you feel good, think more clearly, sleep better, look…

1–Beads Are the New LBD The Jane necklace by Evie Marques ($225, eviemarques.com) is an ace accessory that can go boho or black-tie. Fashion editor turned designer Susan Swimmer created it based on a similar strand she in herited from her stylish mother. “Try wearing two at a time,” she says. “Mix, match, mismatch!” 2–Postworkout Chaser for Your Skin After sweating it out, you need to replenish and protect your skin’s hydration. That’s the idea behind Ducalm Skincare’s Actives Recovery Kit ($79, ducalm.com), a suite of unscented products that includes a lip balm, a cleanser, a facial moisturizer, a body oil, and cleansing cloths for the body.

beauty detox

the urge to detox this time of year isn’t only a mental thing. “Many people need to get their skin and hair back into balance after the holidays, as well as adjust to the cold and dry weather,” says Dara Kennedy, the founder of Ayla, a natural beauty studio in San Francisco. To do it, you’ll want to change up your beauty routine in smart, simple ways to rehydrate first, and then to brighten, smooth, tone, and more. Your makeup can also benefit from a few swaps to help you achieve an on-trend look that matches your skin tone.

Magic is a word makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury says a lot. Before she launched her beauty brand, she spent years mixing her own “magic cream” backstage at fashion shows and photo shoots to transform her clients’ tired skin. The hyaluronic acid and peptide formula, now called Charlotte’s Magic Cream ($100, charlottetilbury.com), has reached cult status worldwide. And when Tilbury wants a magical recharge, she heads to Ibiza with her husband, George, and two sons, Flynn and Valentine. “It’s where I spend time with them, relax, and dance late into the night—it’s my magic beautifying fuel.” The first time she wore makeup? “Completely magical! I was 13, at boarding school, and I put on mascara. Everyone at every age reacted to me differently. I felt mesmerizing and so confident.” Creating that magic—the transformative power…
