I have always been obsessed with the ‘50s and ‘60s glamour icons Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly…The list goes on and on. I never quite felt comfortable with bright red lips.
Since I’m not blonde, I didn’t quite like bright pinks either. Tomato reds, corals — that is where I found my comfort zone. When I discovered these glamour queens of old, I felt like I had acquired a different beauty look.
I’ve compiled a list of the ultimate glamazon-inspired lip shades! These shades range from the palest …

I’m forty-three, and last year I had one of the best times of my life attending the Fab Over 50 (FOF) event! I met the founder, Geri Brin, who welcomed me to this exciting beauty bash. New product launches, mini make-overs and hair trims were all part of the event and well known/celebrity makeup artists such as Sandy Linter, Sue Devitt and Paula Dorf, among others, were on hand giving clients tips on how to look their best.
I remember watching Mark Garrison cut attendees hair in amazement as he was fast and oh-so-good as …

I have been using Mary Kay products ever since I was a little girl. I used to love it when my mom’s friends would come over and take out a treasure trove of color and products. I admit, as I got older and I was able to take the bus to the department stores and read Vogue, I became a product snob — Mary Kay seemed dated and something that my grandma would use. Well, flash forward to 2012 and here I am trying out Mary Kay products, and I …
The European Union promised that by 2013, the sale of animal-tested cosmetics would be banned, meaning the EU would become the world’s first cruelty-free cosmetics zone. An EU sales ban would also force companies around the world to stop cosmetic animal testing or have their products removed from EU shop shelves.
What Exactly Is Animal Testing?
Animal testing of cosmetics is an ugly business, especially when animals — like rabbits, mice and guinea pigs — are blinded and poisoned just to test a new lipgloss, shampoo, or maybe a cream. Animal testing …

If you color your hair at home, how committed are you to a certain brand? Will you only use the same one? Or do you switch up depending on sales/coupons/specials/friend recommendations?
