Taylor Swift: Your Brand is Bold

Screen Shot 2013-07-04 at 1.45.45 PM

Taylor, your brand is bold, not bland. Beige is boring and bland; it says Oatmeal Cookie, not innovative, dynamic, entrepreneurial star. All in all, the photo on the left hurts your brand. The hair isn’t you, the shoes are clunky and the dress makes your waistline non-existent and your hair drab. Contrast that with the …

Queen Maxima, Regal in Red

Screen Shot 2013-06-30 at 1.36.55 PM

  Queen Maxima of the Netherlands is definitely looking regal in red. Her red dress looks better with red shoes, though. Beige is fine if you don’t happen to have red shoes. But every woman should own a pair  of red shoes! They’re the icing on the cake. Speaking of icing, the blush peach dress …

Brad Pitt – Ditch the Grey

BradPittGREY

  I’ve never seen a film star who looks really great in grey, whether it’s a grey pin-striped suit or a casual ensemble like that which Brad Pitt wears. First of all, grey is associated with Old & Grey, Sad & Grey, Tired & Grey. We talk about a Grey Area and a Grey Lie, …

Nicole Kidman: Looking Awesome as Redhead

NicoleKidmnJimmyChoo

  OMG, Nicole you look awesome in this Jimmy Choo ad. Now that’s the way to go when you have red hair. Your pink-toned makeup lets your face pop. Most makeup artists put redheads in “matching” orange makeup. Of course, when they do, black suddenly looks harsh. Orange lipstick and blusher might “go” with red …

A Study in Line

ElizRodriguez

This beautiful actress has done everything wrong with “line” that is possible. First, the neckline makes it appear as if her bust line is sagging and too low. It also makes her bosom look nearly flat. She is definitely longer in the torso than in the legs, and the neckline of her dress exaggerates this. …

Red Lipstick -Why It Gets a Bum Rap

Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 4.18.26 PM

  This is why red lipstick gets a bum rap. Blondes rarely look their best in dark red lipstick when they wear it with drab, earthy colors. Red lipstick demands Big City colors and styles, plus perfect foundation. Also, yellow hair and red lipstick conjure up images of ketchup and mustard. Not good. Kudos to …

Taylor Swift – Red Lipstick is About Attitude

TaylorSwift - Sandy Dumont loves your red lipstick - and why

  Taylor Swift will be 23 on December 13. Too young to wear red lipstick many would say. Red is a state of mind, and that includes red lipstick. It’s not how old you are, it’s your attitude. Taylor Swift definitely has more attitude in red lipstick than in lipstick that is “appropriate” for her …

Makeup Artists: Stop Matching Makeup to Hair Color

Screen Shot 2013-06-27 at 8.30.28 AM

Tyra Banks is a beautiful woman. She’s prettier, however, when makeup artists respect her skin’s natural coppery-pink undertones (photos left). Most stylists and makeup artists make the mistake of matching the  hair color or “harmonizing” makeup to the superficial appearance. It doesn’t work. You get “Perfect Makeup” – which is what we’re used to – …
