Beauty Icon: Esther Williams
World War II might have prevented Esther Williams from going to the Olympics in 1940, but that setback led her to Aquacade, the synchronized swimming group that in turn led her to famed producer Louis B. Mayer and an MGM contract. Her films and TV specials were amongst the most popular of the ‘40s and though Williams passed away last month, she’ll always epitomize poolside glamour.
Tom Ford’s new limited-edition Illuminating Cheek Color ($58) in Bronzed Amber is a bronzer and highlighter in one. Dab onto cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose, in your cupid’s bow, and in the inner corners of your eyes.
Chantecaille’s new 24 Hour Waterproof Liners ($26) aren’t lying--they’ll stay put through cannonballs, highballs, or both! Draw a thin line of Orchid across the upper lash line before tracing over it with Oolong and using your finger to smudge up and into your eyelid. Finish with at least two coats of M.A.C.’s False Lashes Waterproof ($20) in Black.
