    Extreme Glamour Makeup Trend

    It’s been over 3 decades that I’ve been setting trends and observing them in the beauty and fashion industry. Recently, I have noticed a movement in glamour makeup. Social media allows people to see inside the intimate details of our lives. The growing movement of selfies has opened a portal into voyeurism. Women’s appearance has transformed – some good, some not. I watch the Facebook and Twitter feeds of fake, unnatural, heavily Photoshopped images of pathetic, overly made-up, fake looking doll-like faces. Does my opinion sound harsh? In retrospect, looking at the art of makeup, it can transform. Yes. However, the glamour makeup has morphed to an extreme glam makeup…

    Makeup Application & Technique

      Make-up application and techniques for photography are different than make-up a woman wears everyday.

    How to find the perfect hair color?

      Over the last three decades I have had every hair color imaginable. My natural color is brown; to be more specific it’s a medium mousy brown. Well, as the model in the old Clairol TV commercial would say, “Only your hairdresser knows for sure.” Fun to watch old black and white TV ad’s from circa 1957. I must admit, while in beauty school, I even wore green hair. It wasn’t a trend; but a mistake made by another beauty student. Soon after I highlighted my hair, blonder in the front than the back, much like the rocker Debbie Harry ‘Blondie’ in the mid 70’s. As time past my hair…
