Makeup is about creating the illusion of perfection. The right foundation makes skin appear flawless. Concealer camouflages under-eye bags. Dusting charcoal powders on cheeks hollows them out. Brushing a similar deeply hued crushed pigment along the neck thins it out. The trendlet But a few healthy dabs of creamy, shimmery iridescent makeup at the center of the forehead, under the eyes, and along the bridge of the nose and chin brightens up...

We're keeping our fingers crossed that the film Brotherly Love takes home the NAACP Image Award Friday night for Outstanding Independent Motion Picture. Not only is Overbrook High School the backdrop, but a makeup artist in the film - executive produced by Queen Latifah and starring Keke Palmer - is Northern Liberties' own Shannon Thompson . "I'm excited ... I'm super excited," said Thompson Wednesday morning, hours before she planned to hop on a plane to Los Angeles for the 47th celebration of African American superstardom held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.

The sight of her aunt's being escorted out of a Donald Trump rally in South Carolina was too much for the celebrity makeup artist from Hatfield, Montgomery County. You may remember that earlier this month, Rose Hamid, 56, stood in silent protest of remarks by the GOP frontrunner that linked refugees to ISIS. Trump supporters began chanting "Trump! Trump! Trump!" Hamid, who is Muslim and covers her hair with a scarf, was removed from the rally. Pinned to her shirt was an eight-pointed yellow star bearing the word "Muslim," similar to the yellow Star of David that Jews were forced to wear throughout Nazi-occupied Europe.

DEAR ABBY: Our son and his wife have blessed us with a darling 6-year-old granddaughter, "Sophie," who is the love of our lives. We live nearby and are very close. When we received her kindergarten school photo, she had on heavy lipstick and light eye shadow. My husband and I couldn't contain our shock. Her parents said they thought she looked beautiful, and Sophie was made up that way because "she wanted to. " We were speechless. When we pick her up on weekends, she sometimes wears makeup, too. It makes her look like a 30-year-old.

It's that time again: New Year's resolutions are in full effect. And in between vowing to eat right, work out more, get sufficient sleep, and keep a calendar, who has time to maintain a new beauty regimen? The good news is, you won't have to. Just commit to your eyebrows. "A strong, chiseled brow is a very important beauty statement," said Karen Grant, senior global analyst and vice president of beauty at the NPD Group. In other words, brows frame the face. Did your overtweezing in the '90s leave your brows sad, sad, sad?

Look, ma, no hands. That may sound flip, but when you see Jessica Ruiz do makeup by sticking a brush between her teeth, you see where I'm going with this. That's right. She uses her mouth. Ruiz has no other choice. Because of a congenital birth defect, Ruiz can barely lift her arms. Raising her hands to touch even her own face is impossible. So, her mouth acts as a substitute for her hands. She may be a first. Who has ever seen a makeup artist apply cosmetics by sticking a brush in her mouth?

FROM YESTERDAY'S USA Today : "Ever look in the mirror and think, 'Gosh, if only I had Rihanna 's face/body/life, this work week wouldn't be so bad!' " No, USA Today , Tattle has never thought that. We've occasionally thought, "If only we woke up next to Rihanna, this work week wouldn't be so bad. " The amount of makeup, toning, waxing and liposuction we'd need to look like Rihanna would be an impossible amount to obtain. But for those of you who are at least female (or male with good legs)

MARK CUBAN is still trying to get over losing DeAndre Jordan to the Clippers. Last month, the Mavericks owner publicly announced that the 6-11 free-agent center had agreed - verbally - to sign with Dallas. But then Jordan changed his mind and re-signed with the Clippers. The incident embarrassed Cuban who, in addition to not getting Jordan, was hit with a $25,000 fine from the NBA for commenting on the deal before the signing deadline. Yesterday, Cuban discussed the matter with ESPN radio's Colin Cowherd.

MIAMI - The 76ers have to reclaim their identity. Before the trade deadline, they were a solid defensive squad that gave teams fits regardless of the outcome. These days, the Sixers are a three-point-taking and seldom-defensive-stop-making squad. Their latest example was Monday's 119-108 loss to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. "That's not who we are," coach Brett Brown said. "That's not even close to who we are. You have a luxury of shooters coming in and the punishment of having to regroup and reclaim identity, which has been defense.
