Beauty Historian

I’m a long time cosmetic industry insider and former celebrity makeup artist, product developer, award-winning author, marketing strategist, beauty historian and authorof Hello Gorgeous!, Beauty Products in America ’40s – ’60s which inspired a week-long retro beauty event at Henri Bendel. I’ve lectured on beauty history and advertising and cosmetic and fragrance marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology and created fun, interactive workshops on evolving beauty for cosmetic and pharmaceutical corporations. I also had a blast earlier this year talking about the history of makeup on the Sundance Channel series Love/Lust & Makeup along with Stacy London & Bobbi Brown.

I’m available to comment on the history of the cosmetics industry & women’s spending habits through the decades and as a consultant for your TV show, movie or advertising campaign. Visit for more information.
