2013 BEST Makeup Artist

Paula Tierney, A Matter of Face

Locating an eyelash in a haystack is easier than finding a local makeup artist with a light touch. Once you hop up on the hot seat, you’re more likely to get the Elvira treatment. Enter sprightly stylist Paula Tierney. A little color in the brow ridge, a porcelain finish, a dusting of bronzer on the cheeks, and you’re glowing, not garish. Tierney opened her shop in the North End a few years ago, much to the delight of city women seeking $35 pick-me-ups.
