trinaturkMeg here! Babylove let me know that she was having issues getting on the internet and asked me if I would be able to write an article in her place. I didn’t have anything prepared but did have plans for the evening to attend a party the fabulous Trina Turk was throwing.

I met my friend Zoe Alexander at the event and was scrambling through the inside of my purse when panic set in and I realized I left my handy camera behind! No need for cardiac arrest! The wonderful Leonard Fenton was kind enough to send these pictures along. Thanks Lenny!

Trina was throwing this event in honor of her friend and A-List celebrity Interior Decorator Kelly Wearstler. Kelly is all over TV as the elite’s favorite home decor designer. Kelly did the gorgeous interior of all of Trina’s glamorous stores in Los Angeles, Newport Beach and Miami. Kelly looked gorgeous and was happily mingling and signing copies of her new book “Hue” Everyone obsessed with decorating should grab it!

I took the opportunity to ask Trina and two of her many fabulous guests their 3 top beauty items.

Trina Turk  (right-photo above) her designs are worn by too many globe-trotting fashionista’s to count. Everything that this powerhouse creates is a splash of whimsical color, intricate beading and prints that scream “Palm Beach royalty.” Her summer pieces evoke images of movie stars poolside.  I had to drool with envy as my girlfriend bought Trina’s decadent beach tote (with perfectly matching pool towel!) How absolutely glamorous can you get? This woman knows style! Here are her three “Must Have” beauty items!

#1 Rosebud Salve, Trina is never without this cult favorite. It works on lips, cuticles, dry skin you name it! Being a top designer doesn’t leave a lot of time to juggle around a lot of products. This savior does it all!
#2 Shue Uemura Eyelash Curler, Trina’s mom is Japanese. She told me “My eyelashes are long but very straight. I can’t live without this curler! Trina knows quality. Most top makeup artists can’t live without this item either.
#3 Giorgio Armani Luminous Foundation, Trina loves the coverage and silky feeling of this long lasting foundation! I was literaly cheek to cheek with her and I couldn’t even tell she had on foundation.
Tara Solomon (left) runs the uber successful PR Firm Taraink. With its main headquarter’s in Miami and Los Angeles, Tara finds herself traveling much of the time. Her accessories were to die for. Her cerulean romper brought out the sparkle in her amazing blue eyes. She works non-stop but her makeup looked not only expertly but freshly applied. I was shocked that her expensive looking lips were actually wearing a drugstore deal-she made it look like it cost a million bucks. Here are her top three beauty picks.
Ben Nye Cake Eyeliner in Dark Brown, for all of the fete’s Tara throws she absolutely needs an eyeliner that’s not going to smudge or fade away. She swears that this is all a girl needs to keep her eyes looking fantastic day through night.
MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 Tara logs lots of air miles! She loves how perfect this is for her busy travel schedule “comes in a squirt tube, it conceals, it moisturizes AND it has SPF? What’s not to love?”
Revlon Moondrops Lipstick 710 “Orange Flip” Tara told me that she has over 100 lipsticks. “I had a favorite orange from YSL and then they discontinued it! I search constantly for the perfect orange. Right now, I am wearing Revlon 710 (she pulls out her tube to prove it to me). It is great. I love it and it’s cheap!

Zoe Alexander, is a veteran television and print journalist. She always dresses like a champ and her truest talent is connecting successful women to each other. Her networking group has become nationally known as the premier power group where the countries most influential and driven women meet for drinks and dinner to share ideas, encouragement and where more then a few profitable relationships have started! Zoe stunned in a gorgeous stretch knit cocktail dress with sunkist tones and her makeup looked amazing. Here are the top three picks of this force of nature!
MAC Lipstick in Diva (of course!) Zoe loves this classic and sexy shade of red. It’s sophisticated, lasts a long time and moisturizes taboot! I can say I have never seen her lips not look camera ready with this timeless treasure!
RCMA Foundation in Shinto #3 Zoe loves the coverage and how well this foundation blends. It’s definitely a find and she highly recommends it.
Estee Lauder Beautiful Perfume I love that Zoe let you in on this one! As we were walking down the sidewalk to the event I said to her “Zoe! You smell amazing! What is that?” She said “Believe it or not, it’ Estee Lauder’s Beautiful!”
She smelled like Heaven!

Do your top picks match any of these ladies? What are yours?
