From the darkest darks to the starkest lights, some makeup looks as if it takes hours and hours to create that "perfect" shot. And, I won't lie to you, sometimes it does take a long while. However, many of these looks can be achieved easily and, with practice, even quite quickly. Because I choose to live in a remote area of the universe, I often have only myself to use as a model, hence the sometimes repetitive pictures of Posh Paula. To the trained eye, however, each photograph is slightly different - even if it's just a slightly different shade of eyeshadow or blush or lipstick. One woman who's makeup I was doing a few days ago, insisted on holding a hand mirror and checking her appearance with every stroke of my brush. She would make small humming noises or say, "Interesting!", until I actually became nervous. But then she finally said, "It looks like you are turning my face into a blank canvas and then starting over with the contouring, etc." and I said, "You know, that is exactly right! I see each face as a 'canvas' if you will, and then add the light and depth to create something of an illusion - but not so much so that you don't recognize who it is under the layers (unless that's what they want - lol)!" I believe she was the first person who really "got it" right off the bat. Makeup really IS an art form, much like sculpting or any other discipline.

Dr. Donald Brunk (lately of New Mexico), is a great physician and Interfaith should feel lucky to have him. Not only is he knowledgeable and kind, he is that rare combination in a doctor of one who has a sense of humor plus a good bedside manner. I am a difficult patient, having many combinations of illnesses that make me difficult to deal with at best. Dr Brunk has never made me feel like he is exasperated with my case and/or that he would prefer that I see anyone else. On the contrary, he is interested and expresses a desire to know more so that he may get to the bottom where no other doctor has been able to. Also, he has a wonderful nurse, Yulia, who is a genuine prize. She manages to keep him organized (which I would find virtually impossible to do), and always expresses happiness to see me. I feel very fortunate indeed, to have found such wonderful caretakers.

Meredith Pedach is absolutely the best colorist I have ever worked with in 40 years. As a makeup artist, having great hair is an absolute must and I felt extremely fortunate to find her. Envy Boutique Salon is a unique and lovely spot, comfortable and warm.
