    SKIN WIN: The Week in Celebrity Beauty
    • Uma Thurman and her daughter Maya at Calvin Klein
    • Beauty Flash Balm is often shared between mothers and daughters.
    • Kate Hudson in Reem Acra
    • Give your shoulders a sun-kissed glow with this Bronzing Duo.
    • Ji Hye Park is luminous in almost no makeup.
    • Get the look with Skin Perfecting BB Cream.
    • Jessica Biel shows off the new smoky eye: Black liner, brown shadow.
    • Singer and Saint Laurent model Sky Ferreira has the same eye look.
    • Start with black waterproof pencil and soft brown shadow...
    • Then choose the right lipstick to finish the look!

    Other websites have a Best Dressed List, but Beauty Flash Blog has Skin Win, a survey of the most glowing women we’ve seen recently.

    This week’s winner is Uma Thurman, who arrived at Calvin Klein’s Manhattan boutique with a special accessory: Her daughter Maya.  Both looked incredible, and their natural beauty reminded us how many people learn about great skincare from their mothers.  (Once, the model Tali Lennox told us her mother Annie passed along our lip gloss as a makeup staple.) The Courtin-Clarins daughters all use Beauty Flash Balm, and their moms do, too!  [Editor’s Note: So does mine, and she also stole my Double Serum.]

    Other looks we love:

    *Kate Hudson in a turquoise Reem Acra gown that showed off her sun-kissed shoulders. If you want to copy her natural glow, try a trick that Virginie Courtin-Clarins taught us: Dust your shoulders with our Bronzing Duo to look tan, but stay safe.

    *Korean model Ji Hye Park in an incredible violet gown and virtually no makeup.  If ever there was a case for BB Cream, this is it!

    *And Sky Ferreira and Jessica Biel showing two different ways to do the new smoky eye.  First, line your upper and lower lid with black Waterproof Eye Pencil. Next, shade your top lid and the bottom corners of your lower lid with a soft brown shade like Ombre Minerale Eye Shadow in Chestnut.  Apply mascara to both upper and lower lashes.

    Then choose your lipstick.  If you want a refined, fresh-faced look, go for a dusty pink, like Rouge Eclat in Sweet Rose.  If you’d rather look bold and even a bit grunge, heighten the look with a pure scarlet lipstick, like Rouge Eclat in Passion Red.
