Makeup Artist Quinn Murphy Launches Podcast In My Chair
By

One of the most painful consequences of the coronavirus pandemic has been our lack of in-person interaction with each other. And while all of us are affected by social isolation, makeup artists have been hit particularly hard.

Makeup artists’s jobs are the antithesis of social distancing. They’re in your face, they’re touching you, and there’s no other way to do it. But it’s not just doing makeup that makeup artists are missing right now.

It has to do with making people feel comfortable, which ultimately means making conversation and making connections.

Multiuse beauty products have taken center stage during the pandemic, when a quick swipe of color on the eyelids, cheeks, and lips can make a world of difference during Zoom meetings. But the trend was bubbling far before lockdown began last March. Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Match Stix (which highlight, conceal, and contour), Philosophy’s Instant Miracle Worker (an antiaging treatment that simultaneously blurs fine lines), and others have been around for years. Against the backdrop of Covid-19 and working from home, however, the need for a speedy pick-me-up has gained newfound importance. Enter Merit Beauty, a vegan makeup brand that launched on January 12, which touts itself as providing a complete “five-minute makeup look.” Its lip, cheek, and concealing products are meant to be multifunctional, and the complete line consists of everything you need for a full face of makeup while still retaining a natural look.

By

Today, at the inauguration ceremony for President Joe Biden in Washington, D.C., Lady Gaga took the stage and dazzled the nation with her moving performance of the national anthem. For the momentous occasion, the pop superstar wore a custom Schiaparelli Couture ball gown, accented by a large gold dove pin (an emblem of peace). She topped it off with an ornamental beauty look that will go down in history.

Putting her own twist on an elegant updo, Gaga’s long, platinum lengths were braided into a duo of milkmaid braids and woven with sumptuous black ribbon. Adding a touch of softness, a few face-framing wisps were pulled out in the front, while a pair of red poppies, another nod to a peaceful future, were pinned in the back. Though a statement on its own, the intricate style served as a showcase for Gaga’s deep crimson lip, another powerful choice given that
