Face Facts

Your makeup drawer is filled with products you use only once a year -- body glitter’s turn was last week’s New Year’s Eve party -- and others you’ll probably never use again. There’s the concealer that doesn’t match your tan, leftover lipstick from that unfortunate grunge phase, and shades of eyeshadow you’d dare don only for an 80s party.  It’s a special episode of What Not to Wear waiting to happen.

Maybe it’s time to break up with some of that makeup.

Kailua ’s Wendy Robin, a former Hollywood makeup artist who’s done the faces of Carmen Electra and Paulina Porizkova, can help you give your cosmetics case the facelift it needs. Call her for a personal session www.leichic.comand she’ll come to your place to size up what you already have, introduce you to new techniques and colors, plus show you what products the pros use – and how to use them.

Robin has helped hundreds of Hawai‘i brides look their best on their most important day, but she can help you upgrade your look for everyday occasions (work, dinner with friends, dates) too.

Because Zsa Zsa was right -- you never know who’s watching.
