Excellent New Makeup Book:The Makeup Wakeup, Revitalizing Your Look At Any Age by Lois Joy Johnson and Sandy Linter

Face it--women fall into a beauty rut at a certain age, when their tried-and-true makeup techniques just aren't working anymore. That's when you know it's time for a Makeup Wakeup! Beauty experts Lois Joy Johnson and Sandy Linter say it's time to learn what will work for women 40+ now. The Makeup Wakeup shares Lois and Sandy's inside information on what stars do; how to face demons like brow abuse and sun damage; even a fail-proof shopping guide. Though focused on the simplicity of makeup, the authors also consulted with three prominent doctors to address the concerns of women who opt for cosmetic procedures. Lois and Sandy say: "Women 40+ tell us they feel invisible in a world of beauty that is really marketing to younger women. We felt a need to write a beauty guide we'd read ourselves, one that solved the kinds of issues women face every day.
Lois Joy Johnson is one of the founding editors of More magazine and has been a frequent contributor to The Today Show, The Early Show, Extra and CNN.
Sandy Linter is a celebrity makeup artist to women such as Elizabeth Hurley, Cheryl Tiegs and Bette Midler. She is Lancome's Beauty at Every Age Expert. In this role Sandy works with the product development teams and serves as an ambassador for the brand by sharing her makeup and skincare expertise in workshops across the country for women of all ages.

A Soolip Wedding, March 6, 2011

Last Sunday, I attended "A Soolip Wedding" at the Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades. It has to be one of the most beautiful and intimate bridal shows that I've ever been to. I loved it because I didn't feel like I was at a bridal show where traditionally the walls are all lined up with vendors ready to attack brides to be with their services. This felt like an elegant cocktail party with amazing hors d'oeuvres being served by waiters in tuxes and beautiful tables set with luxurious linens, flowers.....and all of this at the beautiful Bel Air Bay Club overlooking the Pacific from the Palisades. Wanda Wen, the owner of Soolip, Paperie & Press in West Hollywood, has been holding this event in Los Angeles for 12 years and it is truly the modern bridal event of the season.

On Sunday, March 13th, I am attending this workshop. If your business is in any way "web based", I suggest that you also attend. I've taken webinars, read books about it, and there never seems to be enough time to cover everything. I have a feeling that this workshop is going to be the topper for me. Having taken seminars from Jen before, her incredible organizational skills along with her passion and success in her work as a top wedding photographer make her the perfect teacher for the current economy.
