All the after-parties have taken their toll; my skin and hair are beat. Just when I need camouflage the most, makeup artist Diane Kendal wants a bare face, with just a touch of gold on lids and a mix of red, orange, and pink on lips. No foundation to hide my pasty skin, no bronzer to revive my tired cheeks. But the fruit cocktail of color on my lips is fun.

AS SEEN AT ANNA SUI
My luck spirals at Anna Sui, where makeup maverick Pat McGrath is going glam rock. "It's all about the eyes, so there's nothing on the cheeks," she says apologetically as she evaluates my sallow complexion. The purple glitter looks stunning on the models but brings out my under-eye bags. What I really need is a good night's rest.
