  • When I met the three sisters whose family owns Alcone, a makeup mecca in New York City, I was amazed at how different they all were. One is a mom in Connecticut, one a professional makeup artist, and one a self proclaimed “amateur” at makeup, yet all can tell you what foundation Kelly Ripa wears <... >

  • One ridiculously cold Tuesday evening in December, I attended a nail art class at Dashing Diva’s 8th Street salon. I figured this would be a walk in the park – after all, I used to be quite the artist, and I even own several nailbrushes. I discovered that my artistic talent does not extend to <... >

  • Journalists are supposed to be objective. Maintaining an appropriate distance from one’s subject is expected, nay, demanded. So I am asking for the reader’s indulgence as I have fallen in love with the Emani Mineral Foundation and I have zero ability to write without passion for this product.

  • A long time ago, in a land far away Dineh Mohajer transformed her college pad into a makeshift factory. Working away, hours on end, she developed funky pastel polishes that were a hit with celebrities and trendsetters alike. This was the birth of Hard Candy (www.hardcandy.com).

  • I consider myself quite the connoisseur of red lip products. I have a fishing tackle box filled with over 50 lipsticks, glosses, and pencils – arranged by manufacturer, natch – of every shade of red ever imagined by man. Cool or warm, gloss or matte, screaming-fire-engine or deep burgundy; I’ve never met a red I <... >

  • My favorite time for makeup has come – the holidays! Cosmetic companies pull out all the stops with inventive packaging and crazy deals to make gifts ripe for the picking for all of your girls, no matter where they may be celebrating. For the chilly ones up at the North Pole, you can send dreams <... >

  • Bobbi Brown is known for two things: creating excellent everyday makeup, and not wearing it. Her approach to make up epitomizes the philosophy where one buys the best products to give that well rested, farm girl flush look. However, this season she’s gone out on a limb to give us a little drama, hence the <... >

  • So, the days are getting shorter, it’s cold outside, and it’s only a matter of time before snow starts to fall. Let’s face it, winter is not the most pleasant time. Unlike our fair weather friends, we can’t fly south for the winter. We can, however, hop in a taxi and make our way to <... >

  • PAINT Cosmetiques founder Naieem Abdool There is a scene in the camp classic movie “Mahogany” (1975) where Diana Ross’s character, Tracy, struts down a Milanese runway wearing a dress that can only be described as kaleidoscopic. Ms. Ross designed the clothes herself and the movie was directed by her longtime love, (and Motown Records founder) <... >
