I interviewed L’Oréal Paris Consulting Nail Expert Tom Bachik.
N: What are some of your predictions for spring trends?
TB: Spring brings a newness and fresh approach. We are more active and nails will get shorter to accommodate. Expect nails to stay soft and rounded in shape, and colors will be a balanced mix of softs and brights living in harmony with neutral tones and metallics.

Read my interview with Global Artistic Director for Revlon and legendary makeup artist, Gucci Westman.
BN: What are your tips for F/W 2012-2013 beauty trends? Can you share your tips or suggestions?
GW: Fashion Week has become all about trendsetting and the makeup has even become somewhat of a fashion statement of its own. Starting with appliqués on the nails and moving up onto the face and body in recent years, makeup has become a lot more relevant in the overall looks shown. With the social media craze like Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, there is always a moment to be photographed so you have to be ready!

Read my interview with Dick Page!
BN: We’d love for our readers to feel as though you were there personal makeup artist for one moment. Can you share one of your patented, universal makeup tips for all women?
Pull faces in the mirror! Seriously! Smile when you’re applying blush and lipstick. Tilt your chin up and look down your nose in the mirror to more easily apply liner and eye colour. Also, a tri-fold mirror is a good investment so you can check out your face, and your makeup, from different angles.

BN: What are some of your key products for summer?
MR: I love a gorgois glow all year round, but especially in the summer. My Believable Bronzer delivers the look of a natural, sun-kissed tan in just three easy steps: a tanning powder for allover color, a shimmer to highlight (don’t forget cheekbones and above your brow), and a beautiful sun shade that’s designed to make your cheeks radiant like a day at the beach. Also for a bronzed body, I opt for the St. Tropez Self Bronzing Mousse. Not only is it super easy to use, but it also leaves your skin with an incredibly natural looking tan.

Read my latest interview with Poppy King over at Beauty News NYC.
BN: I am a pink/nude gloss girl. I can’t do red lipstick. Is there anything you can suggest –tip or technique or even an attitude adjustment suggestion– to get me try it? I am light-skinned, with dark hair, dark eyes!
PK: Start with a sheer red. Every single person can do red. When it is super sheer, you can go up from there. It will help the adjustment to being a red lipstick wearer.

Read my interview with Marcia Kilgore.
“… we realized that girls didn’t only want great body butters and shower gels and shimmer lotions, they wanted brilliantly formulated cosmetics that had excellent ‘bang for buck.’ So we called up our sources in Italy and France, pulled in a few color experts and makeup artists along the way, and started the march towards the launch of Soap & Glory cosmetics.”

Read my interview with Tia Dantzler.
BN: What is your favorite luxury product?
My kit is stocked with Dior 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palettes. I love the fact that I can start off sheer then build the color up to the consistency that I’m looking for. I would definitely recommend starting off by applying an eye shadow primer for maximum coverage.

Read my interview with Jenn Karsten.
BN: What is your favorite drugstore find?
JK: My favorite drug store find is Andrea Eye Makeup Remover Pads because they are pre-soaked, super-gentle and fast! I also really love to shop all of the amazing nail polish formulas -especially the rapid-dry ones because I’m always in a hurry. They have wonderful color range so I can make nails a perfect accessory or trend.

Read my interview with Josie Maran.
I want my company to do well by doing good: for others and for our planet. We are always looking for new charities to partner with. Currently, a portion of the proceeds of all of my products sold in our line go to Marocavie, a Moroccan nonprofit that works to promote the sustainability of the Moroccan semi-deserts.

“the driving force behind starting Urban Decay is the same force that continues to keep it going: passion to create beauty with an edge. Urban Decay is a line for those who enjoy high-quality, innovative beauty products that make a statement, and I think that resonates with women of all ages.”
