I’ve been wondering if it is possible for a writer to profile a famous woman for a magazine without mentioning in the first paragraph that the woman in question is SANS FARDS (without makeup). The answer: It is not possible. Here is the first paragraph of Lynn Hirschberg’s profile of model Gigi Hadid, who is […]

Thanks to gorgeous blogger Vyque of Fasshonaburu for directing my attention to Rihanna’s dark green lipstick at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday. Vyque knows about my recent passion for crazy-colored lipstick. I loved Rihanna’s look from head to toe. I haven’t read anything yet about what brand the lipstick was, but if you want […]

Yesterday was Lady Gaga’s 28th birthday, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I celebrated by going to the first of seven Gaga concerts at Roseland Ballroom. Gaga’s shows are Roseland’s swan song: The venue, which has been on West 52nd Street since 1958, will be razed and replaced with a residential tower. Roseland has […]

After mentioning in my last post that I needed to test my new Blue Moon liquid lipstick by Pretty Zombie Cosmetics, I couldn’t resist doing it immediately, so I wore it yesterday afternoon. The color is electrifying and goes on perfectly opaque. As I expected from a liquid lipstick, it feels very dry once it […]

I still love my red lipstick, but I got a hankering for a purple lip back in 2010. I tried various purples for years; none of them seemed quite right. By the time MAC made its bright purple Heroine lipstick part of its permanent collection last December, it had been so long that I was […]

My designing friend Zang Toi (pronounced “Toy”) presented his Fall 2014 collection at the tents at Lincoln Center last Wednesday. Zang is often inspired by places and eras, and this season’s inspiration was 1930s Shanghai, aka the “Paris of the Orient.” Highlights included the sleek trouser suits Zang does so well … … brocade … […]

I was seriously into eyeshadow during my teen years in the 1980s but now my favorite kind of makeup is lipstick. Red is my everyday color and I’ve got two perfect, long-lasting reds (one from MAC and one from Chanel). I’ve temporarily given up on my search for the right shade of purple after too […]

I’m in Los Angeles for Oscar festivities! I’m not going to the ceremony this time, but that’s okay. I’ve already lurked seductively behind George Clooney on the Oscar red carpet once in my life — who could ask for anything more? Last night was The Weinstein Company’s pre-Oscar part at Soho House. Dorothy Pomerantz, writing […]

Last month, I skipped participating in No Makeup Week. It seemed unnecessarily puritanical and you know how I feel about Puritans. “Oh, I’ve been looking too good! Now I have to show the world how I can look shitty,” is not the way I think. Nor do I believe that unflattering photos are so challenging […]

I’m going to see Lady Gaga at Madison Square Garden tonight and I’ve been working on a look to top the outfit I wore to the January Gaga concert. Here is a peek at the makeup. More and better pictures to come after the show! UPDATED, POST-CONCERT AND EXHAUSTED: My look was “disco-ball Marie Antoinette.” […]
