Makeup Forever Celebrates 30 Years of Color

When Makeup Forever Founder, Dany Sanz, was asked to paint an actor’s body, she was taken off guard as she was a sculptor, not a makeup artist.  The rest is history.  Last week I attended a celebration for Makeup Forever’s 30th Anniversary at a studio in NYC and while we were all inspired by Sanz’s story and had the chance to create our own eyeshadow palette, I found myself intrigued by the body painted mannequins that lined the room.  Glad I questioned them, because their stories are worth telling.

Wedding Day Nails

Two months until my wedding!  While I’ve booked my glam squad and already went for my hair and makeup trial, I’m not sold on what I’m doing on my nails yet. Wedding day nails are important, especially since there are a lot of picture of the bands.  I was thinking maybe my pedi will be my something blue.  We’ll see.  This week in NYC is bridal fashion week and when I stumbled upon the photos from backstage at Monique Lhuillier I started brainstorming.
