Global Goddess Beauty South Pacific Shimmer is not only a favorite of celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, but it’s one of our favorite products too! Of course we know we aren’t as well-known around the world, or even recognizable out in public by those who don’t know us, but we can appreciate the fact that we share the same great taste!

This multi-tasking bronzer features three hues of bronze and a soft dose of shimmer to illuminate and enhance the complexion, and is packaged in a slim, mirrored compact (say yes to purse-friendliness!). The pressed powder is ideal for complimenting a natural tan or creating a warmer tone in paler complexions. Blend all three shades together for a multi-dimensional, all-over hue, or layer your favorite colors for a bronze-themed eye shadow application. $32.50,

cosmedicine megadose.jpgCosmedicine MegaDose is an amazing product that will not only keep your skin feeling smooth, but will treat your skin with healthy antioxidants to fight off all of the yucky free radicals our skin has to deal with each day. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

While the price scared us a bit at first, we find that a little portion of this serum goes a long way -  we are really getting our money’s worth - what a great thing!

1 fl oz, $80, 

Q. I am a makeup artist and would like to ask you to recommend an anti-sweat base to be worn underneath foundation, or an anti-sweat foundation. Here in Greece, we have a hot climate!

TI-0166-00-000.jpgOne of my favorite anti-shine products was introduced to me during my years working in special effects. The talent would wear heavy prosthetics and/ or wigs and we would constantly have to pat down their skin. A veteran makeup artist named Jim Kola introduced me to Make-up International LTD’s Face to Face Super Matte Anti-Shine. You can use over or under makeup and the formula is lightweight and not gel-like or filled with silicone like the newer products on the market. Good luck keeping shine-free in Greece!

For Fall, flawless, radiant skin is a must-have! Create the perfect canvas using products that cover imperfections, give you a natural finish and more radiant glow:

The new fall season will be an exciting time to try out this trend in beauty. Choose these products, or find those similar to them, to create for yourself more flawless and radiant looking skin!


In January 2009, your favorite TV stations are mandated to go from analog to digital. This conversion delivers high definition programming with a picture six times sharper than your previous tube. A crystal clear image exposing every wrinkle, scar, freckle and blemish could cause a stir in Tinseltown. What’s a star to do?

Step in high def makeup. Whether it’s an airbrush application or a silicone powder, beauty is changing and working as a makeup artist has never been more exciting. Although the demand was created for those onscreen and the makeup artists applying it, the consumer at home benefits from better options in traceless beauty products. Every conceivable skin tone and flaw-camouflaging weapon has been thought out in order to keep skin looking natural, just tweaked to perfection.

Make Up For Ever is leading the industry with high def beauty products delivering one seamless cosmetic after another. I worked with several different companies looking for foundations, powders and concealers and could not find a more naturally perfect complexion than with the following three products:

Make Up For Ever HD High Definition PowderP210400_hero.jpg
When you untwist the cap, the ultra-fine micro particles in this colorless powder appear as smoke coming from the cap. You will not find a thinner powder for an invisible set. Makeup Forever’s High Definition Powder contains no talc and is 100% mineral. The end result is a silky, soft focus look that works on every conceivable skin tone. The powder makes mediocre foundations look better and the matte finish lasts beyond your day.

Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Foundation

Make Up For Ever Lift ConcealerI’ve been a fan of this lifting concealer for years. Its thin, but supplies adequate pigment to cover the biggest blemish or the deepest under eye bag.

Now that you’ve created a natural even-toned canvas, a little bronzer can add the color back to your skin tone in all the right places. A bronzer is the perfect cheekbone companion, but in HD television and real life, you can see the shimmer and dark color associated with most beauty brand bronzers. I’ve found a few contouring favorites to re-sculpt lightly and effectively with gentle pigments and no shine. Just take it easy a little goes a long way:
