One of the best parts of attending celebrity based events is that you get to meet the experts in the fields of fashion and beauty. As I have interviewed Michael O’Connor for the Platinum Guild, meeting make-up artists is a real treat for me (probably because I am a beauty junkie!).

In my career which started out as a beauty and fitness writer, I have had the opportunity to interview many of the top make-up artists from both coasts and beyond. One of the key artists that I hadn’t been able to  interview was Tim Quinn from Giorgio Armani Cosmetics. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t seem to score that "elusive" interview– till this Emmy season! (must have been something going right in my  chart or vibes).

Make sure you listen to the podcast to hear Tim Quinn tell you what;s hot for the Red Carpet and then you can use that for fab holiday looks!

What a treat to finally meet this great makeup artist who works on a list of celebrities  that makes your jaw drop and he will just as easily sit you in a chair and work on YOUR face as well. I got him to spare us a few minutes and tell us what the "look" is for the Emmys and also how to work that look for fall and holiday.

Plus with the fabulous (and I do mean FABULOUS) Armani Cosmetic line that is so luxurious and  can go from neutral to smokey in a split second with silky textures and luminous colors, there’s no way you can go wrong.

With the new colors and textures  (SECRET: NEW foundation coming!!), it’s easy to go crazy at the counter and then when you get someone as talented as Tim Quinn who can make plain  people beautiful and the pretty  people radiantly gorgeous, there’s something special about having one of the key makeup artists apply stuff to your face. (He did say I had nice skin! That was nice to hear)

While you might want to pick up a concealer, a foundation and even the luminous silk in any number of colors, you definitely want to make sure that you get right foundation and also the palette of shadows. Each season there are new colors and the lip colors rock– from the mattes, to satins to the sheers. The lip glosses are gorge and I have a couple of those and LOVE THEM!!

The new fall palette of gorgeous colors!

The  newest thing I got to play with was the four comb mascara– the newest addition to the mascara collection. This is a step up to the right kind of mascara for me! It’s easy to use, doesn’t get goopy ( I returned another brand’s comb mascara because it took FIFTEEN minutes to apply!). This was a snap– and it brushed out nicely.  It’s new and worth every penny. I follow it with Star Mascara too.

I was able to snag a few samples of things and you will get a blog (or two ) out of it– particularly one where I use as I get dressed for the Emmys!

Listen to the podcast again and take some notes this time. Make sure you visit the Armani counter to check out the line to see what works for you and your budget. As far as I can see, there’s isn’t a single thing that doesn’t work. The sheer cream shadow in a pearl color is gorgeous for a neutral eye with lots of mascara and a rich lip.

Something to think about! I would like to thank Tim Quinn, Kelly McNamara and also Jenia Molnar for their time, help and patience on the podcasts and me getting them up. These lovely people got me INTO the  suites and I had the best time hanging out with them!!

See you at the next Red Carpet Suite!
