Rethinking Office Food

Rethinking Office Food


I don’t normally use the word “makeover” (definitely not in the context of makeup), but when it comes to office eats, the workplace could use a new look.

Fireworks, sparklers, and the beach—I’m so ready for the Fourth.

It’s no secret that I hate contouring. When I was starting out as a makeup artist in the 1980s, contouring was everywhere—makeup was all about changing your features, and it was really artificial. My interest in natural beauty, and celebrating—not altering—a woman’s features… READ MORE
