So Bad It's Good
Lip Service: Makeup Artist Breaks A Guinness Record
In wacky but fun beauty news, Estée Lauder makeup artist and brand ambassador, Rick DiCecca, made history on Friday when he broke the world record for "Most Lipstick Applications In One Hour" at a Chicago Macy's store. DiCecca applied lipstick to 303 women — the previous record was 180, set by a makeup artist in Madrid this past March 3rd. He said, "I am ecstatic to now hold the very first Guinness World Records' achievement for Estée Lauder. As a makeup artist, I'm used to working under pressure, and this success was definitely a new and different way to challenge my skills."
There was an official judge from Guinness on site to make sure that lipstick was applied consistently on the lower and upper lip of each woman and that the color was within the lip lines. DiCecca even had to use a different tube on each participant.
We never knew such a record existed until now ... but congratulations to the new beauty recordholder!
