Top Picks:
Glam's Reader Top Beauty Picks are in.
Hmm, top pick Cargo Lip gloss surprises me.

It's super sheer and disappears very quickly. And the tin can makes you think you're getting way more than you really are. Stick to their amazing blushes, bronzers and eye shadows. Colors are great, huge amount and they stay on!

Harper's Bazaar Update:
Well, I met with the photographer days after our shoot to go through images and help pick the best ones. I'm not sure if this is because it's a beauty story, or it's Harper's, but I NEVER get to help pick the images. Ever. Usually you do a shoot, photographer sends in their favorites (and of course, it's the ones showing the best lighting, composition, etc, never best hair or makeup.) We went through and edited down to the best ones (beautiful!) and then the photographer retouches the images. It's amazing how even young perfect faces need retouching (here one model had major bumps in her skin, that the poor photographer has to retouch every single pore on her shots. Bumps that couldn't be seen, but I could feel when I worked on her face and sadly, nothing that makeup could hide.) So now the top images are emailed to China, where we're now awaiting 'approval' if Harper's Bazaar likes or not. We'll find out in a few days if it gets picked up. And the Avant Garde photos? Amazing. Takes my breath away. We'll find out too if the top Dutch fashion magazine will run it. I'll keep you posted!

Coming Soon:
I met with the super chic, super funny Leslie over at at a very elegant restaurant, (amazing french fries!) Counter Bistro, on 1st Avenue in NY (105 1st Avenue, between 5th & 6th Street) to go over ideas and actually podcast about the latest makeup trends for summer, bridal, fall, and a special podcast about the ins and outs of concealer. I'll let you know when they're up!
