"When and how do I use lip liner?"
"What is the best makeup for oily skin?"
PATTY BELL

Prime your skin first if it is oily with an oil absorbing moisturizer. I love the oil blotting powers of MAC blot powder- it's virtually invisible, & absorbs like no other powder out there. If you need a long lasting oil free concealer, Makeup Forever,and Cover FX work well. But generally, I like a concealer with a little moisture to avoid dryness under the eyes.


A quick fix for uneven skin tone is airbrush makeup, it covers discolorations flawlessly. You may also want to cover any red spots with a yellow based concealer such as MAC studio fix. But generally, uneven skin tones may need to see a dermatologist to determine if any underlying skin conditions exist. Regular facials and some microdermabrasion help keep the skin looking smoother.

If applied properly, it looks polished, professional and keeps your lipstick on longer. I like Chanel's Nude or MAC's Whirl lip liner for a great every day lip pencil that works with most skin tones and lipsticks. Apply a lip primer to lips, let dry & lightly dust lips with powder. Outline lips with lip pencil and fill in. Apply lipstick.

"What shound I do about uneven skin tone on my face?"

If you have a problem with mascara clumping, you may want to switch to a lengthening mascara as thickening mascaras tend to be a heavier formula that can cause clumping. Don't forget to wipe the excess mascara from the wand before applying, starting down on the one side, and straight up on the other side; wiggling the wand starting at the root & working it gently through the ends. Separate lashes with a mascara spoolie and let dry between coats. Replace your mascara every 3 months as older mascara can clump as well since the formula dries out.

Metallic Nail Colors Take Over Runways

Forget the usual neon orange and bright lime paints - this year, metallic's are the crave. It must be the sparkle in shade that's been catching makeup and beauty artists eyes.

Nail aficionado Regine Berthelot of Caudalíe Vinotherapie Spa at The Plaza claims "people are getting really excited."

80's flashback? Maybe. I'm never one to turn down sparkles, but I think regardless of what the pros are doing, I'll stick to the neons this summer.
