“Light colors highlight and make things come forward. Dark colors shade and make areas recede.”

“The key is for people to notice your eyes, not the eye makeup.”

“The eyebrows are the most important feature of the face…all emotion states are conveyed by the eyebrows.”

“Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul, and sometimes even in myself.”

“If you want to look your best, be creative, try some new ideas, and have fun doing it.”

“Glamour is not self-conscious; it’s not trying really hard. It’s just expressing your own truth. I think that’s what the essence of glamour really is—expressing your uniqueness.”

“Beauty might bring happiness, but happiness brings beauty.”
