MEET THE FACE FLATTERER
Celebrity makeup artist Sonia Kashuk launched her cosmetics empire for Target a decade ago – long before the whole designer brands for retailers trend took off. Always ahead of the curve, her innovative, fresh and budget-friendly color makeup collection and magnificent brushes were an instant hit and helped put “Tar-zhay” on the map. It has blossomed into a brand featuring face, eyes, lips, palettes, skin care, tools and bags too. www.target.com
