Dressy Bessy

A matinee during the week, while everyone is working. One of my absolute, favorite past times. An empty, dark cinema and the magic of film. Transports you to another world, where problems are forgotten. The big screen, the compelling story, stunning visuals, an actors' transformation. Blissful entertainment. The writer in me craves creative illusion.

'Tis the season to celebrate movie making, blood, sweat and years it takes film to make it to the big screen. Award Season's in high gear. Hollywood buzzes with stars, directors, producers, screenwriters, press, agents, designers, stylists, hair and makeup artists. Smack dab in the eye of the Hollywood storm,  equal parts exciting and exhausting.

Stars rely on their beauty team to get them through the whirlwind, looking fabulous.
Some award worthy beauty products I count on to create Oscar worthy faces,
stunning day and night. Joan Rivers will be left speechless.



Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, radiant dew coverage creates a flawless veil of gorgeous skin. For a bit more coverage try Armani Maestro Foundation, great as a primer and for those needing a bit more coverage. Holds up on camera! Armani's Celebrity Face Designer Tim Quinn should know, he's en route to LA to beautify Hollywood's A list stars.
Armani Lip Maestro in striking bold color and long lasting wear, delivers vintage Hollywood glam with a modern updated twist.

Multi Corrective Concealer Brush brightens the eyes in seconds, hides imperfections in a luxurious push pen formula, a must for before and after touch ups.

Light-Expert Compact
Mineral Foundation Compact.
The all in one powerhouse powder compact.
Delivers a luminous matte protective veil of coverage.





L'Oreal Infallible Shadows pack a serious punch.
The texture goes on smooth, doesn't fall on the face and lights up the eyes in Megawatts.
Gold is my go to favorite. Apply to the lid, inner eye, lower lash line creating chic, camera ready eyes.








Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and False Lashes
No starlet's face should be left incomplete.
Shu's eyelash curler and false lashes,
the ultimate in red carpet eye candy.



Mac Cosmetics
Matte Bronzer, a flat bronzer with no shimmer, spot on for creating texture, definition, warmth and an overall tan.
Pink Swoon Blush is a warm pink, and a favorite of a super diva client. She turned me on to the blush and an application technique. Applied just above the high cheekbone, the skin will light up the stage.




2013 Best Actress Oscar's category. Quvenzhan√© Wallis aged 9, is youngest Best Actress nominee in history of the Academy Awards... and Emmanuelle Riva, 85, the oldest. Women of every age are sublime, talented, lovely and beautiful.
