And why?

I love both Bobbi and the late Kevyn Aucoin. They have great product lines and the advice is straight forward and encourages women to embrace their uniqueness.

Do you have a favorite piece of advice that has helped you with make up?

    Kevyn was a genius. Pat McGrath is also very talented.

    The best advice: Less is more and when in doubt go natural.

    My favorite is actually Francois Nars. He has such a sense of the dramatic and I love the smoky eye/lush lips look. Great unique colors in his line, too. I also admire that he wouldn't sell to Estee Lauder (no offense, but I do not like them owning EVERYTHING!).
    My fave piece of makeup advice: Do not skimp on foundation! If you mess this up, nothing else will look right.

    Dick Page is amazing! I've also been a Vincent Longo fan since the '90's when he did makeup training videos for Lauder.

    Kevyn's makeup is truly artistic but everyone tends to have the same basic eye look.

    My piece of advice for my clients----brows! You wouldn't buy a piece of art & hang it on the wall w/ thumb tacks so the same applies to your face. Filling in your brows be it w/ brow powder/shadow, pencil, gel makes all the difference in completing your look.
    Slinky's rule for NC.com:

    I suppose I can't judge you because you married a serviceman and it is wartime. Boo hoo. You must be loney sitting at home with nothing else to do but pick on people. Why don't you go masterbate again?

    I didn't know Kevyn had passed away. That's sad! I thought he was a genius. I appreciated his work because I could actually use his tips/advice in real life.

    I'm a minimalist. I like Kevyn Aucoin and Bobbi Brown, also.

    I worshipped the ground Kevyn Aucoin walked on. He will be missed. He could make any woman look gorgeous. His looks varied from subtle to beyond outré but they were all great and all signature Kevyn!
    It's scary that I know who all these people are!
    Do you know why they call it "PMS"? Because "Mad Cow Disease" was taken.
