One of my favorite places to be is with Guggenheim Productions. Here are videos we did for Kenneth Cole’s Fall 2011 Behind the Scenes, featuring GQ stylist Brett Fahlgren and Isabel Dupré of Vogue TV.  The male model, Sam, is not hard on the eyes either. I wanted to title this post as Sam! but thought that wasn’t very informative to the content. Makeup…

If you feel like foundation either makes your skin look worse or just doesn’t look as good as it used to, here are some tips! Start with Skin Care. Exfoliate and moisturize before using foundation and/or powder. After cleansing and before moisturizing, try Origins’ Modern Friction.

I’m a first-time mom. When I was pregnant, I was so tired and bloated, my feet and back hurt…but apparently I did have that glow! (Whatever that is…I wasn’t feeling glowy at all.)

What is Beauty?

09-07-2011

The definition of beauty is, in many ways, made up. What’s beautiful in one culture may not be beautiful in another. In Asia, women want translucent, pale skin.
