IT ALL STARTED with the smoky eye. I didn't know how to create the look and I wanted to, so badly, that I watched countless how-to videos on YouTube until I got it right. That year, I used all my holiday gift money to buy a new collection of makeup. My love affair with beauty products had begun. I'm a graphic designer by profession, with degrees in that and in fine arts. I view makeup as an art, too. Contouring, blending, choosing the right eye shadow and lipstick to enhance natural features - it's really like drawing on your face.

Each spring, as he has done for the last 10 years, Jim Puvel tries to get stung by a bee. "When you're surrounded by up to one million bees in a season as I am, it's in my best interest to get stung as early as possible," Puvel said. The sooner he gets stung, the faster he will build up immunity. Which is a good thing, considering that he has as many as 50 beehives at his home in Wrightstown and on surrounding properties. "By summer if I'm stung, it's no more painful than a mosquito bite," said Puvel, 49, who estimates that he gets stung 10 to 15 times over the six months when bees are active.

When founder and CEO Maria Mavromatis says the Hercules Beard Co. "is all me," she's being modest. The Cherry Hill resident, 42, designs, makes, markets, distributes, and hand-sells a line of nine men's grooming products - while holding down a full-time job in advertising. Did I mention that Mavromatis also created the handsome Hercules logo [herculesbeardco.com], as well as the packaging and promotional materials for her brand? "I'm a self-starter," she explains. "I go and I do it. I worked on Hercules for two years before I launched in September 2015.

Trisha Gura is a blogger on www.huffingtonpost.com. She posted this yesterday. They don't do it - because they've had enough. Some women in midlife are not coloring their hair, dieting religiously, and struggling to achieve unrealistic standards of physical beauty. While the statistics continue to startle us - $8.2 billion worth of beauty products sold in 2006, a $55.4 billion annual weight-loss industry, and 2.7 million women aged 51 to 64 who underwent cosmetic surgery in 2005 - there appears to be a subset within this demographic that is letting go of measuring self-worth based on appearances.

In a gesture that can be construed only as desperation, Gil Cates, the producer of tomorrow night's Oscar show, has offered a prize of a high-definition television to whoever makes the shortest acceptance speech. I'm betting the first winner to clock in under 30 minutes by forgetting to thank his cat or car detailer will take the HDTV. The problem for Cates is that some in the film community are more than a quart low, and probably suspect HDTV is some sort of sexually transmitted disease.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Looking good has always been serious business in Brazil. Now it's big business, too. A flush new middle class, with a population strong on working adults, is dropping major cash on designer shampoos, lotions, and cosmetics, rapidly turning this country into a beauty-industry powerhouse. Sales of beauty products in Brazil hit $43 billion in 2011, a growth of 142 percent in five years that puts it on a pace to overtake Japan as the world's second-largest beauty market within a few years, according to Euromonitor, a global market research company.

Where does the time go? It's a question most of us ask ourselves just about every day. We make great plans. We write long lists. But come nightfall, too often we find ourselves in the same place: comatose in front of the television set, the "to do" list left mostly unheeded. But I recently realized where a good chunk of my precious time on God's green earth is going: the shampoo aisle. Here's what happened: I was in the drugstore buying shampoo and, like a dutiful consumer, reading the labels in the interest of making the best choice for my hair type and lifestyle.

What was going on? QVC beauty planner Koreen Fader, 27, had carefully selected the merchandise featured on last Monday's prime-time 25 Great Beauty Gifts show, picking best-sellers from past shows. She made sure all the lip glosses, perfumes, and shea butter soaps were available on warehouse shelves for shipping. The pricing was done. The guests were ready, the stage sets looked good. The hosts dressed up to add to the glamour. Even Joan Rivers was lined up to pitch her beauty products.

The name Est?e Lauder is on or behind many of the beauty products in our homes. She was ubiquitous yet discreet, about everything from her schooling to which companies her conglomerate owned. The grande dame of beauty died Saturday at her Manhattan apartment of cardiopulmonary failure. Her family said she was 97, but that's not an etched-in-stone fact, as Lauder often glossed over details about her age. She was a determined entrepreneur who revolutionized the way generations of women have shopped for makeup and fragrances.

We all know how easy it is to mess up a manicure. It doesn't matter if you sit under the drying lamp for five minutes or 15 minutes, you're subject to a nick when you pick up your keys, a smudge when you slide your arm into your coat sleeve, or a bump when you wrap your hands around the steering wheel. And if you actually make it home smear-free, as soon as you wash a dish - or wash your hands, for that matter - that pretty French or candy-apple-red paint job is likely to chip. Enter the latest in manicure miracles: UV lamp-cured polishes.

There's the H2O Plus Sea Salt Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner, the One With Nature Dead Sea Salt collection of body lotions, and the LIP-INK Dermaliquid Lip Smoothe Scrub for puckered puckers.

A vegan for the last eight years, Jennifer Storey is careful not to put meat, eggs, honey or milk in her body. Now it's becoming easier not to put them on her body, either. From conditioner to lip balm to plant-based pedicures, companies and spas nationwide are offering vegan products and services. That typically means there's no testing on animals, and ingredients are free of animal byproducts - including beeswax and carmine, a commonly used red coloring made from beetles. But these goodies aren't tucked away on a dusty bottom shelf in a health-food store.
