Lusting After Longer Lashes

Veruschka knew no limits!

Following below is a great piece about lash extensions and fake lashes written by Judith Newman for the New York Times. It’s relevant and informative so I wanted you all to read it.

Tanning 101

Did you know that until about the 1920’s, the upper classes considered a tanned appearance to be an entirely undesirable effect from being outdoors, only suited to farmers and workers?

As sports and the popularity of outdoor life rose, though, so did the sun-kissed look. It became the craze it is today thanks to the […]

Color me beautiful:  How to wear bright makeup colors

I love working with really vivid colors when I have the opportunity. Bright blues, mint greens and neon orange shades are not for every job nor every client. On the other hand there’s no reason to feel intimidated by a splash of color because there are ways to control the madness.

Mascara Reality Check

I recently saw a hostess on a TV shopping network claim that the mascara she was selling would give the wearer 5 (!) different looks. Over-inflated claims of that kind drive me absolutely bonkers!
