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.

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 year it seemed like new life was breathing through Fashion Week in New York City. As a young makeup artist I was thrilled to do shows and run all over the city for the extra gigs brought on by fashion week. Now that I’m more established, I must admit I tend to look as […]

I’ve always loved the Fall Season best. It’s not too hot or too cold in New york. You can break out cool sweaters and jackets, the September issues of all our favorite magazines come out with their biggest issues of the year and everyone re-vamps their wardrobe and makeup to go back to school or […]

My rule of thumb for beauty is the same for everyone, regardless of age, weight or ethnicity. There are features you want to play up and features you want to play down. It’s the same equation whether you’re a size zero or a size twenty-four. That said, part of being the best version of yourself […]

In all the photos of Lindsay Lohan in court as she was sentanced to 90 days in jail, followed by time in rehab, she had her hands up against her cheeks, supposedly to express her shock and dismay at the Judge’s ruling.
