Question: Does Money Buy Happiness…? Our Take: “Most people will instantly think no but it’s a much harder question than that. We believe it really depends on who you really are. For example, let’s say happiness for you is paying money to not watch someone suffer through hard times. Now you can make a lot of money and hate all […] via What’s Your Take?

      Denise Geschke Serious dilemma this week. My kids had a semi-formal dance at school on Saturday night. I spent the requisite amount of time buying my daughter ten different fit-n-flare dresses and then returning nine of them. Luckily, my son was much easier to buy for and his outfit came together with only three visits to Bloomingdales. The standard deal is that your kids are invited to a pre-party before the big dance. The pre-party allows parents to see their kids in the semi-natural habitat amongst their peers. And, it’s a full on photo shoot complete with…

Primer! Another quasi cosmetic-skin care hybrid that contains skincare ingredients but formulated to stay on top of the skin to improve makeup wear. This category at first glance looks easy but it’s not. I’m super picky about primer because so many can break you out or make makeup application harder! Crazy I know! Primer is also another reason I decided to introduce my own brand. The following are my best picks to perfect skin prior to makeup application. Primers may be worn with or without foundation allowing your color products to apply easier and wear all day!\ BEST ALL IN…

Foundation. Face Makeup. Base. Spackle. Pan Stick. Pan Cake. It has had several names over the years. All promising to deliver better face when you wear it. But alas many don’t live up to their hype. Most women I know hate the thought of foundation. The “Unnatural Mask” or “Clown Grease Paint” as it were. Luckily technology has moved forward not only in the Tech sense! New formulas are more light weight, natural, and concern driven. But as always there are many to choose from. What’s a girl to do?   As promised! Here’s my list of Holy Grail foundation…

Welcome to 2017. Yes! We made it. Looking around at everyone, including my own mug in the mirror, I decided to help put our best face forward to begin the year. Why? Because last year was so friggin stressful and it’s showing up in our skin. Tired. Dull. Broken out skin. So here’s Harvey to the rescue.  My clients & girlfriends are always asking me what “The Best” products are to prime, tint, cover and powder so my next blogs give you my best from experience as a makeup artist and beauty columnist. I’ve had acne since age 16 so…

  2016 Goodbye. What a year. Some good. Some bad. Some unpredicted election results and deaths of some of our most treasured icons. It was a year that forced all of us out of our respective “Closets” as it were. Liberals, bigots, racists really we got to see each others true feelings. Everyone had an opinion about everything and social media became the main venting place for all to let each other have it. Facebook had a record number of unfriending and blocking situations that I’m sure mark Zuckerberg didn’t see coming. SO 2017. Let’s turn the page and take…
