Professional Makeup Tips from ARTISTRY


ARTISTRY*, the prestige skincare and makeup brand of Amway, is awesome. We adore Artistry's Light Up Lip Glossavailable in several shimmery, neutral shades. And with the appointment of Rick DiCecca as its Global Makeup Artist, Artistry just became even more luxe.  

Me with Artistry Global Makeup Artist, Rick DiCecca.
During Fashion Week, Everything She Wants luxuriated (as Wendy Williams would say) in the Artistry Beauty Lounge, where we received a skincare analysis (a tailored product regimen based our analysis just arrived in the mail...we’ll start with the Artistry Essentials Balancing Cleanser, Balancing Toner and Balancing Lotion), and we were pampered with a soothing mini-facial (thanks, Eden) and an expert makeover by Mr. DiCecca.

A great mascara tip the veteran makeup artist -- who has worked with Estee Lauder and primped a host of celebs including Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford and Iman – shared is to first flutter the mascara on the top of your lashes and then bounce it under the lashes.

Here are more makeup tips from Artistry pros that will help update your look:

1) Prevent eyeliner from slipping and fading quickly by tracing your eye pencil line with a matching shade of powder eye colour.

2) Trace along your lashline with eye shadow instead of pencil for soft emphasis.

3) Create a bit of glimmer around the eyes by using a dot of light, shimmery eye colour at the tear duct of the eyes and then blending. This also widens the eyes.

4) Apply cheek colour using the flat side of the brush bristles instead of the tips. This technique gives you more control and allows you to carefully, gradually build up your colour.

5) Avoid patchy, uneven blush application by first setting your skin with translucent powder.

6) Apply colour only to the apples of the cheeks for a modern approach to cheek colour.

 *ARTISTRY is sold exclusively by Amway representatives in over 55 countries across the country.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater Graces Brooklyn Academy of Music, June 4-9, 2024

Dance is expression. Dance is spiritual. Dance is activism. Dance is life. I feel most alive when I am listening to music and dancing.  As a spectator and fan, some of my fondest moments of watching dance performances have been witnessing the dignity and grace of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Every time I see the Ailey company, I am inspired, moved, and grounded in the beauty and complexity of the African American experience.  Photo by Paul Kolnik For me, the highlight is always "Revelations," Mr. Ailey's three-part ode to his upbringing in the Black Baptist church. The three sections -- "Pilgrim of Sorrow"; "Take Me to the Water"; and "Move, Members, Move" -- tell the story of African American faith and persistence from slavery to freedom. Over the weekend,  I had the pleasure of taking an outdoor Community Workshop in downtown Brooklyn, where we learned some of the choreography for "Revelations." I beamed from ear to ear
