Yitzchaka Jackson: Marathon For Avi Mekonen

“In all the years that I have been involved with helping Avi Mekonen, I could never look at his face directly because of how badly disfigured he was. I always found a way to avoid looking at him straight in the face.

Judith Feld Carr: Remarkable Heroine

Judith Feld Carr clearly remembers the initial impetus for her extraordinary activities in the rescue of Syrian Jewry: "When I was 10 years old, Sophie told me, you have to do something so that this never happens again to the Jewish people.' I never forgot it."

Small Eyes Appear Larger

23 Tevet 5771 – December 30, 2010
Many of my clients have small eyes. Often, they ask for certain color eye shadow or even a style that would not make the eye appear larger, but would actually make it appear smaller. In this week's column I'd like to give tips on how to make small eyes appear "larger."

The Road Trip

15 Tevet 5771 – December 22, 2010
We're on one of those really long family road trips. The kind that parenting experts advise will imprint fond memories on your children's psyche. (How's that for guilt?) And the kind on which you never leave home without a bottle of Tylenol and your favorite cup of strongly caffeinated, black coffee.

Mascara

The most important element of your eye makeup is mascara. I've mentioned in a previous column that mascara is one of the most crucial steps in your basic daily makeup wear. Mascara, even without any eye shadow, creates definition.

Eliminating Under Eye Puffiness

1 Tevet 5771 – December 8, 2010
Dear Sharona, I am in my late 20's and have heavy lids and small bags under my eyes. As I am still young and get plenty of rest, doctors have told me that it is genetic. My trouble with concealing the bags is not with the coloring (like people with dark circles) as much as it is with how to make the bags look smaller or less puffy and my eyes bigger. What are your suggestions? Adina, New York

Lipstick Lasting On Shabbos

17 Kislev 5771 – November 24, 2010
Which lipsticks will last throughout Shabbos is a common question I am asked. In fact, many women share this common problem where the lip color just "slides" right off within a few hours. There are a few products on the market that are formulated to last from 8-18 hours, and many of them can be purchased at your local drug store. Covergirl, Maybelline and L'Oreal all make long lasting lip color that can be found at drug stores.

Airbrush Makeup – What’s The Hype About?

11 Kislev 5771 – November 18, 2010
What's so special about airbrush makeup? Is this a new technique in makeup application? These are a couple of questions I commonly get from my readers and clients. Airbrush makeup application has been used in Hollywood on models and actors for over 30 years. For approximately ten years, makeup artists have been using this on brides, businesswomen, or anyone that wants to look great for an event.

Cream Blush by MAC

27 Heshvan 5771 – November 4, 2010
Blush is an important final step in your makeup application. Blush brings a glow to the face, as if a candle was lit from within. Many blushes come in powder form, but they also come in cream form, which is the form I'll discuss today. One of my favorite blushes is the MAC cream blush. The blush is very lightweight and gives off a nice dewy look - a look that is especially suitable to those with dry skin, since dry skin gives off a very dull, matte look.

Shaping The Brows

19 Heshvan 5771 – October 27, 2010
When applying make-up most people focus on the eyes or lips, and sometimes forget to give attention to the eyebrows. Your brows can open up your eyes and face, and can also make you appear younger, so be sure to give them as much attention as you would your eyes and lips.

Smokey Eyes with Prominent Eyes

12 Heshvan 5771 – October 20, 2010
Dear Sharona, I have very prominent eyes; I was wondering what color and or style of makeup would suit me? I have dark brown hair and brown eyes, and medium-deep skin tone. I rarely put on makeup and if I do, it's only on my eyes. I am looking forward to reading your suggestions. Anonymous- NYC

Good-Bye Thin Lips

5 Heshvan 5771 – October 13, 2010
Most women want to have fuller lips, or at least give the impression that they have fuller lips. As we age our lips get thinner. But there are different techniques you can do to give the illusion that your lips are full and youthful looking.

Selecting The Right Color Foundation

28 Tishri 5771 – October 6, 2010
This week's column will help you in selecting the right color foundation for your skin undertones. There are three categories of undertones that a person can fall into: red, yellow, and olive. To determine what undertone you are, you must first look at the undertones of your selected foundation. Pour out some foundation onto a plate or even your hand, and spread it. You're not focusing on how light or dark the shade is; you're focusing to see what the base color of the foundation is. You'll most likely see a red or yellow color in the depths of the foundation. Only a couple of companies make foundation with a green undertone in it. Therefore, chances are, if you have an olive undertone, you may have to find and add a green color corrector into a yellow-based foundation, so you don't end up looking jaundice.

Wonder Detergent

8 Tishri 5771 – September 16, 2010
Last week, I bought a new brand of detergent. It promises to remove all stains, even those stubborn, impossible to remove ones--or your money back. Guaranteed.
