David Creel: Sometimes, less is more

Posted 2/26/2011 in Columns

One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to makeup application is the belief some women have that more is better. Yes, if you are competing in the next episode of RuPaul's Drag Race series on VH-1, then by all means pile it all on!

Adele Elliott: Imaginary friends

Posted 2/21/2011 in Columns

Once upon a time, only children had imaginary friends. This was probably because they live rich fantasy lives. One of my favorite cousins truly believed that Dorothy, from "The Wizard of Oz," was her friend. Nevermind that a middle-aged Judy Garland died years before Natalia was born.
