Celebrity Makeup Artist

Dior celebrity makeup artist Ricky Wilson will be at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour Wednesday and Thursday. (June 12, 2007)

I've been dying to write this sentence: makeup maven and maestro in Miami.

Who could possibly deserve such alliteration you might well ask? Ricky Wilson for Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour and Melanie Mills for GBS The Beauty Store in Coral Gables and Pinecrest, that's whom.

The two celebrity makeup artists will come to SoFlo on Wednesday (11/6) and Thursday (11/7).

Ricky Wilson - the Dior Celebrity Makeup Artist - has painted pretty for Sharon Stone, Emmy Rossom and top models such as Jessica Stam and Coco Rocha. Aside from Dior, he has done the looks for runway shows from Vera Wang and Vivienne Westwood to Tommy Hilfiger and Emanuel Ungaro.
