Jillian Dempsey Interviews With Marta Walsh

Jillian Dempsey seems to have the best job in the world. She is a top Celebrity Makeup Artist and AVON’s Global Creative Color Director a position she took since 2006. She is married to actor Patrick Dempsey so the mystique about Jillian for me is major. I feel she adds greatly to AVON’s makeup collections bringing to us beautiful makeup inspired by her work with Hollywood celebrities and fashion. Yesterday I was given an amazing chance to get to ask Mrs Demspsey some questions about the latest from Jillian Dempsey for AVON makeup line and AVON’s Spring/Summer 2011 makeup and AVON’s Bridal makeup looks. BTW Did you know lipstick is the best seller product at AVON and AVON just turned 125 years and their moto is all about INNOVATION.

Cheryl Tweedy Outfit Gone Wrong

Here’s is an example that even beautiful girls like Cheryl Tweedy can look bad with just a wrong outfit and hairdo. I don’t mind the colors so much but the big puffy hair paired with a matching puffy shirt is just too much. If she pulled her hair up maybe it would have saved Tweedy’s outfit. Maybe.
