What's happening is a combination makeup workshop and tea ceremony. Traditional afternoon tea -- with warm scones and Devonshire cream -- is served in the intimate Leopard Lounge (at the Chesterfield Hotel, 363 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach). Linda Johnson, a woman who puts the artist in the term makeup artist, will step out from her usual perch behind the Chanel counter at Saks Fifth Avenue to show women "how to modify their looks without looking dead or like a 16-year-old."
According to Johnson, every woman's profile is different based on her skin type and the set of her eyes. If a woman isn't properly hydrated, her makeup can dry out during the day. If she's wearing a satin blouse, she should use a matte lip color. "Seriously," she says, "that's why we can sit here and talk about it for two hours." During this event, expect Johnson to answer the question she is asked most frequently by her clients: "How can I look more dewy?" What would Coco say?
