Revlon‘s Global Artistic Director — and one of my favorite makeup artists — Gucci Westman pulled her inspiration from the crossroads where East meets West, and combined Asian grace with Western attitude while creating The Shanghai Collection for Revlon. I made many double-takes at my local drugstores while looking at Olivia Wilde, Emma Stone, etc., as Westman has transformed their looks on several ad campaigns.
I even picked up a pamphlet about Gucci Westman; I was so intrigued to know who was the MUA behind these new collections and advertisements. There was a …

Professionally trained at Vidal Sassoon, the duo have been the creative force behind several national television ads from Revlon, Pantene and L’Oreal Professional.
Jet’s motto is, “look, study and attack.” She is known for creating works of art in the realm of hair, using a very “honest” approach. Rhys’ cult following comes from his ability to “read” hair like the pages of a book. The duo owns two …
We think this year is most definitely the year of the lash and the year of the nail. There have been so many terrific nail lacquers and innovations, from Dior’s “Gris Montaigne” to the Sally Hansen nail strips that it’s hard to keep up with the trends.
Take Chanel for example. Did they simply have to tease us with that glittery Peridot nail lacquer for Fall 2011? It’s enigmatic, strong, powerful. We can’t wait to try our bottle once it arrives.
