a few words from

Well I was just in heaven watching the Globes last night. That’s like my Superbowl, baby! Red lip were definitely out in full force, and they were usually very matte, but ranging from a pinky red (on the radiant Natalie Portman) to a bright orangey red (on the unexpectedly edgy Jayma Mays from Glee) to […]

Marion Cotillard had this teal asymmetrical getup; (love the color; not sure about the style) and I loved how her makeup echoed the shade. Normally I do not feel you need to “match” your eye shadow to your outfit, but in the case, her makeup artist nailed it. I could just as easily see this […]

Many people commented on the somewhat stoic tone of this year’s Globes; perhaps people were afraid to appear too exuberant with what is happening in Haiti. But as a makeup junkie, I noticed a trend toward lighter eyes, less reliance on smoked out blacks and charcoals, and more light shimmers and neutrals. I personally felt […]

Chanelling Julia: I thought she was absolutely perfect this time out-the sexy “hippie” waves, the big heavy jewels, the more casual dress. A very hot momma. Here’s my take on Julia’s look: Laura Mercier oil free foundation Nars blush in “orgasm” Laura Mercier “bare lips” lipstick Nenefit “skinny jeans” cream shadow on entire lid Laura […]

You know I love a big red lip and none of these ladies were shy about the shades they chose. But which ones were a win, and why? I would have preferred a somewhat rosier red on Meryl, this particular shade washed her complexion out, as far as I was concerned. It could also have […]

Hands down, my favorite makeup look of the night! (Honestly she looked prettier on my HD tv last night than she does in the accompanying pic, but anyway…) Here is how I would achieve Sandra’s glowing skin and defined eye: Use Laura Mercier’s illuminating tinted moisturizer all over. If you need additional coverage, spot apply […]

Lately I have been completely obsessed with liquid liner. Thin line, ticked out at the ends or big wide stylized, as long as it’s black and very bold. I blame my recent viewing of the movie Nine, but my inspiration board in my office(which rotates depending on what I am researching) is currently covered with […]

Drew’s makeup has just been rocking my world since she has been out promoting Grey Gardens. the retro clothes, the pincurls. Methinks I have a girlcrush-as long I don’t have to listen to her… If one of my brides went with this look to the left here i would be doing a happy dance.

I did not “review” the looks from the Oscars; there are enough of those post-mortems! However, I know my clients are sometimes at a loss when I ask them to bring me pictures of makeup looks they would like for their wedding. Bridal magazines tend to have some very bland makeup in their fashion spreads, […]

Well, I can’t say I watched the whole show-I don’t have that kind of stamina or inclination-but I did study the fashion and hair and makeup this morning. It looks like finally the bold lip is back, and the ubiquitous smoky eye is in semi-retirement. From bright, super-matte matte red on Heidi Klum to coral […]
