Personal Quote:

[to The Associated Press in November 2001 about not dictating how people should use cosmetics] I don't use "always do this", "never say that" and I never give advice because I'm not the end-all, be-all authority. See more »


Favorite makeup artist of both Cher and Janet Jackson; has done multiple video shoots and album covers for both. See more »
