Over the years Sandy Linter’s watched the best photographers, supermodels and lighting people work. As one of the top makeup artists in the world, her job has been to make models camera ready gorgeous, but when she’s the one being photographed, Sandy knows how to strike a pose.
The first time we met I was in my early 20’s. Sandy looked like an angelic goddess. It’s a mental image I will always remember. Here are some of my favorite photographs of Sandy.
Every once in a while I have a hair crisis, and I’m currently at that point. Continue Reading
In the 70s, I worked a lot with model, Rosie Vela. I was introduced to her as “Roseanne,” so I continue to call her Roseanne. She calls me “Red” because she remembers my red hair from 1975!! This gorgeous photo was shot by Albert Watson for Vogue and Harry King did her hair.
The glorious silver trend in hair continues as younger women are letting their hair go gray, flaunting their streaks, or bleaching and toning it in shades of gunmetal, platinum, and chrome. I admit, while it looks fantastic on young women with smooth skin, I have my doubts about having gray hair AND wrinkles.
For two days in a row, it took me 20 minutes to do my own makeup. I almost never do it without a twist. Continue Reading
My copy of Makeup Wakeup is never far from my makeup table.
Sandy Linter’s book, Makeup Wakeup, Revitalizing Your Look at Any Age, written with Lois Joy Johnson, award-winning journalist and founding beauty editor of MORE Magazine, is a great Holiday gift for you and your girlfriends. This book should be on every woman over 45’s makeup table because it’s a step-by-step, written and photo tutorial about more than just makeup.
The stunning photographs, taken by photographer, Michael Waring, shows Sandy applying makeup to barefaced supermodels like 1010ParkPlace’s own, Kim Alexis, who is featured on the cover.

Middle age kind of snuck up on me, and along the way I neglected to read the memo about thinning hair and eyebrows. One afternoon I was staring at my reflection in the mirror, wondering why everything seemed a bit… off. I looked like myself, only sparse and faded. Later I ran into a friend who’s a few years older. She looked so bright and awake. “I just had my lashes done,” she breathlessly informed me. “Don’t they look great!” She batted her eyes at me, and I had to agree she looked fabulous. Everything about her seemed more vibrant and intense. Of course you know what I did next…
After a 60-minute session that was surprisingly relaxing, I walked out of the salon with a full set of “permanent” eyelash extensions. Continue Reading
Brenda Coffee getting her hair colored by Rita Hazan
I am late in joining the gray hair club. It’s only been this past year I’ve had to deal with some gray roots showing and even then, it’s not a large amount of gray. There are enough to be noticeable where I part my hair. Since I don’t have a lot of gray hair, I can really stretch my hair color appointments. Two weeks prior to having my roots professionally done, I turn to a product my hairdresser recommended. Continue Reading
