Happy hump day, ladies. Yours truly came down with a summer cold last night. My nose is stuffed up, my body aches, and I can’t taste anything. What is life, I ask you, if you can’t enjoy the taste of your greasy Chinese chicken chow mein?
Have a great day today, and wash those hands often because the cold is going around.
I thought I’d take a quick look back into the archives while I sip some guava juice. Last September was a fun month.
Makeup and Beauty Blog: So what MAC makeup are you wearing today?
Dita Von Teese: Well, lets see … I hope I can remember! I think my cheek color is called Dame. My lip color is Russian Red with a Lip Lacquer called Fan Plastico over that. And I have liquid liner and MAC false lashes (of course!). I have Vapor eyeshadow and MAC mineralize powder on. Click to read the rest…

Makeup and Beauty Blog: HDTV is notorious for showing extreme detail in makeup, and some makeup companies like Kryolan are even creating special products to adjust to the fine detail of High Definition TV. What tricks and products do you like to use to deal with HDTV?
Bruce Grayson: The first thing I do is become buddies with the cameraman. Lighting is the most important element in HD.

Before I even begin to apply eye make-up, I like to start with Olay Definity Eye Illuminator ($25.99 at drugstores nationwide) because it has multi-colored micas that help to hide imperfections. It limits the amount of make-up I need to use around the eye. Click to read the rest…
