In my ultimate quest to find the best drugstore cosmetics, I decided to chat with Lauren Iavarone, cosmetic industry guru who owns her own studio, Expert Makeup Artistry in Bergen County, NJ. She has worked with some of the biggies (Urban Decay, Toni and Tina, MAC, Mario Badescu & Too Faced) and was even an educator for both Mario Badescu and Too Faced. She has traveled the world learning as much as she can about the cosmetics industry and it definitely shows - she now teaches, does bridal trials and special occasion makeup all out of her studio. I was so appreciative she was able to take the time to answer my questions and wanted to be sure and share my Q&A with all of you. Enjoy!
