The Beauty Beat: 7/29-8/4

Pucker up for a kiss, take advantage Spa Month and get your diet and exercise on.

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but one from Tom Ford’s lip collection is way better, as is a $99 spa treatment from Elle Spa. Plus, a good workout from Green Monkey and diet plan from Fresh Diet to help you go the distance.

We can all agree Tom Ford is swoon-worthy. Turns out his new makeup counter at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour Shops is, too. One of just 10 in the U.S., find 132 products, including the color collection and skincare, complete with Illuminating Protective Primer SPF 12 —the line’s secret weapon for achieving that dewy glow. There’s also perfume, candles and a bath line. And the brushes. They are as decadent as Mr. Ford himself. From the man whose signature look includes strong smokey eyes, find 10 shadow looks. And his statement red lips are as easy as applying Cherry Lush. As for that nail polish named Bitter Bitch, the team at Tom Ford knows exactly for whom its named, but they’ll never tell. GET IT: Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, 9700 Collins Ave., Bal Harbour; 305.865.6161.

What? You still haven’t made it to Spa Month? Book your appointment now for the treatments at Elle Spa. Indulge in the Glow Getter exfoliation facial, with Clarisonic Cleaning System with Opal Infusion and say so long to puffiness, fine lines and dark circles. Or, treat yourself to Beauty Style, a wash, cut, color and blow dry, complete with masque and head massage. Both are just $99 now through the end of August. GET IT: 4525 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-0000.

It’s not just about diet. It’s not just about exercise. It’s about working both into your life. Check out the Power Flow class at Green Monkey Midtown with Amy Rabin on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:10 to 7:15 to get your blood pumping. And then be sure to give Deliver Lean a go. The food delivery service dishes up lean proteins, fresh veggies, complex carbs in all its meals and teaches portion control. With waffles for breakfast, wraps for lunch and shrimp for dinner, it’s as tasty as it is health conscious. Bonus: no cooking. Meals arrive at your doorstep (from Jupiter to Miami Beach) early in the morn. GET IT: Green Monkey Midtown, 3301 N.E. First Ave., Miami; 786.507.5338. Find Deliver Lean online at or 888-730-LEAN.
