Exfoliate dull skin away with the 3Lab Perfect Scrub then pair with the Super H Serum which moisturizes without creating shine. Moisturize with 3Lab's WW Cream, this is a remarkable product. The WW Cream aids in brightening sallow, winter skin.



  • 3LAB: We actually might go home and try that tonight! Where does your favorite look for a bride start?

  • LN: My favorite bridal look is a look that all women can achieve. My favorite look starts with healthy, radiant skin.

  • LN: My must haves are 3Lab's Perfect Mask and WW Cream, Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara and Lipstick Queen's Oxymoron Matte Lip glosses.

3LAB INTERVIEWS CELEB MAKEUP ARTIST, CYNDE WATSON

We sat down with beauty expert, Cynde Watson, to bring you beauty tips straight from a celebrity make-up artist!

Cynde has worked with celebrities such as Angela Bassett, Giselle Bundchen, Tyson Beckford, Lauren Conrad and many more.

With 15 years of experience backed behind her, Cynde truly has made her mark on the beauty industry.







1. What inspired you to go into the beauty field as a make-up artist?

I am inspired by faces. The differences, dimension and the challenge to solve the beauty concerns of each of my clients and put a smile on their face. I’m an artist. I paint and sketch portraits and have always been creative and love mixing and blending colors. I became a model and none of the makeup artist could ever get my makeup right. My skin was either ashy or too dark and several makeup artist would tell me I didn’t need makeup only because they didn’t know what to do with my face. I started doing my own makeup for photo shoots and fashion shows and some of the other models would ask me do theirs. I started assisting top makeup artist and the rest is history.

2. What are your go-to products that you always keep as your make-up kit staples? Why are these products among your favorites?



  • 3LAB: “Hydra Day Water Based SPF 20” - This product hydrates my client’s skin without leaving the surface of the skin feeling heavy and oily. “WW Eye Cream” Perfect under makeup moisturizes the under eye area and provides the perfect slip.

  • SKINDINAVIA: “No More Shine” Makeup Finishing Spray” - I use this product as a primer and an over makeup finisher. It helps control oil keeps makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles and keeps skin cool so it stays put for up to 12 hours. I also use SKINDINAVIA “10 Years Younger” Makeup Finishing Spray”- I also use this product as a primer and an over makeup finisher. It helps give the skin a radiant glow and keeps makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles as well as keeps skin cool so it stays put for up to 12 hours.

  • COLOR BY CYNDE WATSON: Corrector & Concealer Pencil” -This product has a pink/peach corrector on one end to diminish the appearance of dark shadows under the eyes and a concealer on the other end to layer over or mix with the corrector for a brighter more lifted look under the eyes.“Translucent Finishing Powder" . I love the way this powder leaves the skin vibrant and not ashy. It absorbs oil and doesn’t change the color of the makeup on face, eyes, lips and cheeks. “Volumizing & Lengthing Mascara” - Great buildable mascara that is VERY BLACK and doesn’t flake or smudge and removes with ease.

  • TEMPTU: “AIRbrush Makeup System” -LOVE this makeup system and the easy to use makeup pods that pop on and off with ease. I get FLAWLESS foundation, highlighting and blush results in minutes.

  • SHU UEMURA: “False Eyelashes”- What I love most about the Shu Uemura false eyelashes is the quality and range. They range from very natural looking to total glam! “Makeup Brushes”

  • MARK.: “Kiss Dry Goodbye: A lightweight lip softener that hydrates the lips and doesn’t interfere with lip color.


3. What beauty trend are you loving right now and why?

I’m loving the LUMINOUS SKIN trend because “Great Makeup starts with GREAT Skin” I also love the return to Bold lip color.

3LAB note: We're loving this Spring 2010 luminous skin/ bold lip look:

4. What is the most important beauty advice that you can give to ourreaders?

Take care of your skin. Cleanse, moisturize and use sun protection year around. Nothing looks better then beautiful radiant skin!





Cynde, Thank you for taking the time to give our readers your expert beauty advice!

3LAB'S PERFECT NECK CREAM FEATURED IN THIS MONTH'S HARPER'S BAZAAR!




"GET THE GLOW FROM NECK TO TOE"

According to Harper's Bazaar, New York plastic surgeon, Jon Turk, has found that a combination of free-radical scavengers, collagen-stimulating and dermal plumping ingredients work best to reduce the signs of aging in the neck and decollete. Their pick: 3LAB's PERFECT Neck Cream
"It's the first part of the body to reveal your age," says Maria Dolanescu, NYC expert facialist.
Free-radical scavengers protect the skin from factors, such as temperature, wind, pollution and smoke, that can breakdown and damage skin cells. One of the potent anti-agers found in PERFECT Neck Cream include Abyssine 657 which is a deep-sea microrganism that protects cells from UV rays while reducing chemical and mechanical stress on the skin. Another active ingredient is Nano-Claire GY™ . This synthetic growth hormone-like material stabilized in nano-sized liposomes has proven to reverse the aging process and giving rise to young cellular skin components. The Abyssine 657 and the Nano-Claire GY™ plump and protect the skin while a firiming complex that contains zinc, copper and magnesium firms the neck.
Thank you to the Beauty Department at Harper's Bazaar!

"Award Worthy Skin" as seen on the 82nd Annual Oscars










3LAB was so inspired by our favorite Style Guy, Lloyd Boston's, Red Carpet Report on Extra that we decided to host our own friendly in-office awards for best celeb skin.

We want to bring out the inner celeb in everyone and so we came up with winners for "Award Worthy Skin" straight from the red carpet and our tips on how to obtain it.



And the winners are...





Sandra Bullock

First time Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock, looked absolutely stunning in a Marchesa gown on the Red Carpet. This seasons biggest beauty trend, the colored lip, served as the perfect complement to her gorgeous bold skin.

To get Sandra's camera ready beauty use 3LAB's PERFECT Mask to firm the skin and create a bright and even complexion. Follow up the lifting and brightening treatment with Shine Stop Moisturizer for a matte finish that leaves your skin hydrated without clogging pores.

These products prep the face for makeup application, revealing your own award worthy skin - now thats just PERFECT!





Jennifer Lopez

Recording artist, actress, entrepenuer and busy mom Jennifer Lopez looks stunning in Armani Prive.

Jennifer is simply glowing with her signature golden girl complexion. To get this glowing look try 3LAB's WW Cream.

WW Cream contains advanced ingredients that contribute to an even skintone that combats signs of aging such as fine lines, sagging and winkles all the while hydrating your skin. WW Cream, the ultimate moisturizer, can be complemented with WW Eye Cream which lightens dark under eye circles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. In addition to this treatment, the WW Eye Cream also gives a little "lift" for brighter eyes that look awake and youthful.

If you find yourself multi-tasking like La Lopez, have your skincare do the same with WW Cream and WW Eye Cream which works just as hard as you do!


Steve Martin

We swooned over this year's c0-host of the Oscars, funny man Steve Martin who looked handsome in Tom Ford.

Steve Martin's striking silver hair complements plump, youthful-looking skin that. To get the same ageless skin we suggest 3LAB's "h" Serum which replaces vital nutirents lost with age and speeds up cellular turnover for youthful, healthy skin. And after such an effective serum don't forget to hydrate the skin. Our favorite is Hydra Day with Water-Based SPF 20 that is a water based moisturizer which locks in hydration while protecting your skin from UVA/UVB rays and fighting off harsh enviornmental factors such as wind, pollution, smoke, etc.

Let us know who your favorites are and for more Stlye buzz check out Amerca's "Style Guy" Lloyd Boston.

The Result are in for 3LAB's Newest Product: Perfect Cleansing Foam!



This rich and creamy, gentle foaming cleanser nourishes as it cleanses away makeup and impurities. It is perfect for all skin types – even the most sensitive of skin. $40.00








By divvydog:
I have extremely sensitive skin and this cleanser leaves no irritation at all. My favorite thing about it is not only how well it cleans, but how amazingly well it rinses off my skin. This feels like a low detergent, but effective facial wash. I will buy this product, without a doubt!
Review posted 02/02/2010


By lahscious:
Words cannot express how much I LOVE this cleanser!! I have normal/combo skin with occasional blemishes and this cleanser works wonders on my skin. It is super foamy without any of the usual yukky "harmful" ingredients found in so many cleansers today. It smells great, it rinses clean without leaving a film on your skin. I love, love, love this cleanser! One word of caution: The product is super-concentrated. A little bit goes a LONG way. I don't even use the size of a dime & it's PLENTY for me.
Review posted 12/30/2009


By georgieyp:
I love this face wash. My face feels SO clean after I use this, yet, it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight and desperately in need of moisturizing. This has definitely become my go-to cleansing foam.
