The stage makeup class was taught by freelance makeup artist Carolyn Simon, who recently did film makeup for Kirk and Michael Douglas.

Civility by Diana Olson The Queen of England once said to the Prince of Wales… "Dress gives one the outward sign from which people judge the inward state of mind. One they can see, the other they cannot." It is a lifetime investment in knowledge for future clothing purchases, makeup, and decorating choices. A color palette will give you information for your personal expression, while increasing your self-confidence and self-esteem. There will be no other color palettes like yours.

Makeup artist Danielle Holcomb analyzed the face of 12-year-old Serena Snaer on Thursday, trying to figure out how to make her uglier. Serena was being prepped for her role in a drama at Wilson Middle School, where she was to play “Flaky Snow,” the antithesis of Snow White. Holcomb had already added a witch-like prosthetic nose, reddish-brown face makeup and fake warts to Serena’s face, but was looking for a way to make the student look more startling, Holcomb said before spotting unused black and gray hair that she decided to use as a mustache, beard and hairy supplements to Serena’s fake warts.

Diana Part II F A good example of fashion dominance is the Academy Awards, where the clothing and accessories are the dominant issue. Within the hair-style industry, hair styles often dominate the person if they just connect to the latest trend. Within the makeup industry, the makeup trends dominate. The fashion industry would like for every trend to work for everyone. The important emphasis in fashion trends is the outside of the individual, not the individual itself.

Robert Chacon Teny Geragos' science project prompted her to cut back on makeup. The Flintridge Preparatory School eighth-grader conducted research on a handful of makeup brushes belonging to her and her mother, and after testing, discovered that 31 types of bacteria colonies lived on the applicators. Displayed in the school's annual science fair, Geragos' project featured several petri dishes pockmarked with bacteria found on several of the blush, eye and lip stick brushes.

Deborah P. Nathan Glamour, glitz, rolled hair and shoulder pads all graced the stage of the Alex Theatre Saturday night. The Alex Film Society's screening of "Mildred Pierce" (Warner Bros., 1945) was rendered an even more stellar tribute to the motion picture icon by way of a Joan Crawford look-alike contest. A pre-show reception gave contestants the chance to strut their stuff before a distinguished panel of judges and guests. This classic film's story pivots on -- to put it politely -- a difficult mother-daughter relationship.

My Mom didn't raise me to wear makeup or to spend a lot of time on my hair. And, yes, I can hear quiet laughter from the gallery: "No! Really?" I live in jeans and seldom valet park because I'm cheap (more titters). But sometimes, I DO. But it was with increasing uneasiness that I read Jody Kussin's "Women's Secret Society" column as what I thought was a tongue-in-cheek ribbing turned out to be something else. The author's friend chides her to stop picking on these "poor, insipid women."

With the Oscars still fresh in our memories, I thought it was a good time to answer questions from women readers. As a 30-year veteran makeup artist for film, television and print, I may have done it all. Whether I'm grooming a star for the Academy Awards or doing a backyard wedding here in La Cañada, I've made bad skin look good, small eyes appear large, long noses seem short and collar bones turn boney. I've changed wispy fine hair into a lion's mane and even used gaffer's tape (duct tape)

Tim Willert DOWNTOWN -- Ricardo Romero has traded in his shears for a brightly colored Hawaiian shirt and a new line of work. Romero, a master barber who has cut hair on North Orange Street near the corner of Wilson Avenue for the past 1 1/2 years, saw his last client Friday. That's because the 63-year-old Glendale native has decided to go into the apparel business. More specifically, women's Hawaiian clothing. "I'm trying to make a living in a different way," Romero said Thursday, surrounded by a vivid assortment of sarongs, muumuus and leis.
