Stepping beyond the confines of the beauty closet, I like to take my adventures in “making up” to the streets of NYC, LA, Boston…you name it! I’m a beauty editor with 11-plus years of magazine writing tucked under my belt; but more than being wordsmith, I enjoy dipping into makeup, hair, skin and nail trends that sometimes go beyond the traditional. For me, there’s no cat eye too extreme, no glitter too fulgent, no haircolor too outré to try (ask anybody who knows me; I’m up for anything!). If I can put a dash of the unconventional into the conventional, I’ve done my job. My journalism background has made me naturally curious and completely unbiased, and I truly do seek to test out, try on and submerge myself into anything and everything beauty (and fashion!)—and then translate my experiences into words to live by.
