Pamela Taylor Makeup Academy and Studio of New York

Info: "The phrase 'signature look' ripples through the pages of fashion and style magazines with rarely a thought towards definition. Is it really possible for a makeup-up artist to be defined by the use of lip liner? Can a particularly heavy application of mascara pinpoint an artist's work as accurately as, say, Van Gogh's brush stroke or Tissot's use of artificial light? The difficulty is that the fashion industry is in a constant state of evolution with trends and colors changing with every season, so to establish a technique that adapts to this extremely fluid environment is no mean feat." - "Makeup Artist Magazine," about Pamela Taylor's application, the Hydration Technique.
