What to Look for in Beauty This Year1 of 12
By Emili Vesilind
With all the advances in beauty technology it's hard to keep up, but we've rounded up the best new treatments, products and news you need to know about for 2011.
Botexting2 of 12
Need a reminder about when to get your wrinkles injected? Like everything else in life, it seems there’s an app for that. Or at least an e-messaging service from Smile Reminder to text you when it’s that time. And you can even send out invites for your very own “Botox Party.”
Minority Report3 of 12
A survey from the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery showed that more than 50% of respondents felt that plastic surgery has grown more popular among members of their own racial/ethnic group over the past five years, specifically among Asian-American, African-American and Hispanic patients. Even more interesting? Thirty percent of respondents said they would seek out a surgeon of the same race/ethnicity as themselves.
The Full Tom4 of 12
Tom Ford, the dapper fashion designer, who had beauty buffs swooning over his decadent Private Blend Lip Color Collection last year, will parlay his lipstick and fragrance collections into a full-blown beauty line later this year — to include cosmetics and nail color. We’re holding our collective breath.
Deliver This5 of 12
Fingertips can only do so much, so skincare companies are innovating new ways to get their products into our pores. Look out for exfoliating pads and riffs on gadgets including the Clarisonic brush and NuFace face-firming device. Kate Somerville, for one, just launched resurfacing peel pads that slip over your three middle fingers like a puppet — meant to mimic a professional-strength treatment peel.
Short Cuts6 of 12
Emma Watson’s honey-toned mane — which went from long and lustrous to pixie-short late last year — is a bellwether for beauty looks to come, say some celebrity hairdressers, both on and off the red carpet. And after years of “Real Housewives”-style extensions and flat-ironing, we’re ready for a little less maintenance in the locks department.
Mass Appeal7 of 12
On the heels of Target’s many beauty collaborations, swanky skincare line Kinerase has just launched its Dr. LeWinn for Kinerase collection exclusively at Walgreens and Walmart. Packing clinical-strength kinetin, Kinerase’s signature antioxidant, it’s the next best thing to using the cult-favorite beauty line, at a fraction of the price.
Retail Therapy8 of 12
Legendary makeup artist François Nars launched his luxe makeup line, NARS, 17 years ago, but Thursday marked the debut of the brand’s first-ever flagship store, in New York’s West Village. The black-and-white shop opened with a cache of store-exclusive items, including a cinnamon-hued lipstick, dubbed 413 Bleecker for the address of the sleek boutique.
Measuring Tool9 of 12
Plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Jacobs has been on a mission to discover a way to scientifically measure the results of doctors and surgeons, and now he’s created The Cutometer MPA 580 which measures the “visco-elasticity” of the skin within a millionth of an inch. One can then compare results of procedures (like liposcution, laser resurfacing and face lifts) and products to understand better the biomechanics of how the skin works, according to Dr. Jacobs.
Beauty by Gucci10 of 12
Legendary fashion brand Gucci recently announced it would broaden its fragrance brand into a full beauty house this year. We’re betting the colors and formulations will be as fierce as its high-fashion namesake.
Cellular Level11 of 12
Lancôme, Kate Somerville and Emerge are just a few of the skincare companies to recently incorporate stem cell technology (not actual human stem cells, mind you) into facial creams and serums. The claim is that the ingredients, which often contain plant stem cells, boost the turnover potential of the skin’s cells.

Feeding Our Faces12 of 12
According to L.A. dermatologist Jessica Wu, our acne, crow’s feet and eczema have everything to do with what we’re eating. The celebrity skin guru’s first book, “Feed Your Face,” lays out a 28-day diet plan that promises to banish bad skin. Celebs including Katherine Heigl, Maria Bello, Kimora Lee Simmons and Lisa Ling weigh in with their anecdotes on what’s worked for them.
