  At this year’s Academy Awards nearly every actress who was nominated or presenting gave great face!  To the average viewer there was not much variety in terms of makeup. No crazy shades of eyeshadow or lipstick, no crystals glued to anyone’s eye lids (I miss you, Cher, call me!). The majority of these A-listers […]

A few years ago New York Magazine published its Weddings issue that offered “The New York Bride’s Guide to Everything” it was an amazing issue that covered the schedule for anything and everything a prospective bride needed to know and do in the year leading up to her wedding.

Catfishing is when someone fools another person or people online […]

I recently posted on Facebook that I estimate that I’ve shaped over 156,000 eyebrows in the past 15 years. I was rounding down. As you can imagine, when one spends their days shaping, correcting, guiding other people’s eyebrows, you learn a few things about what a great eyebrow – or a badly shaped brow – says […]

Would you believe the two models pictured are wearing the same shades of makeup? Well, they are! Obviously, their concealer and foundation match their skintone, but the Pure Radiance pressed powder, Alive Blush, Perfect Eyeliner, eyeshadows and Chutzpah Lipstick are the exact same on both models. Many of you know my philosophy of beauty is Minimum […]

Beauty and symmetry are universal truths. Regardless of ethnicity and varying cultures, we all know beauty when we see it. We all know a jacked up eyebrow when we see it too. This past summer I was in Zurich, Switzerland and could not help but notice what was happing there with the local’s eyebrows. Many […]

Help! I’m trapped on an island where we recently had an earthquake and a hurricane! This island is known as Manhattan, the epi-center of New York City, where, for the first time in the history of New York, the subways and public transportation were shut down, homes were evacuated and the general expectation was that […]
