|Listening to makeup artist Tom Pecheux break down his beauty look for Chado Ralph Rucci during Spring 2010 Fashion Week.|
|When I first started blogging, I had the opportunity to meet and interview celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson. It's pretty obvious to see how excited I was from the huge smile on my face!|
|Hanging out backstage with M.A.C Cosmetics Senior Makeup Artist Victor Cembellin, who always puts a huge smile on my face (and creates unbelievably gorgeous makeup looks to boot).|
|I've made no secret about how much I love Deborah Lippmann nail polishes. Well, here I am with the legend herself, backstage during Fall 2010 Fashion Week. Is she gorgeous and incredible or what?|
|Another manicurist who I absolutely LOVE? Nonie Creme, the founder of butter LONDON. I own almost every color of her nail polish, AND she's the nicest, most unbelievably talented manicurist. This is us backstage during the craziness that is Betsey Johnson.|
|The incomparably talented makeup artist, Gucci Westman, giving me a rundown of the beauty look at Tibi during Fall 2009 Fashion Week.|
|Makeup artist James Kaliardos is a living LEGEND. He started the magazine Visionaire, he's friends with Madonna, he basically rules the world when it comes to makeup. He. Is. Incredible. In addition to watching him create looks over the years for everyone from Rodarte to Baby Phat, I had the opportunity to attend a master class he gave for M.A.C Cosmetics a few years ago, and the lessons I learned were invaluable. (Check out everything he had to say here.)|
