About the Author
Always up for the latest Broadway show or Bollywood film (accompanied by a well-chilled martini) Paula lives in Seattle surrounded by her family and dogs.
Bryan Barron has been working closely with Paula for 12 years. He spent many years working for various cosmetic lines in the retail sector, as a makeup artist, educator, and manager. His first project with Paula was the fifth edition of Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me. Since then, he has played an integral role in subsequent editions of that book along with The Beauty Bible. Bryan also served as co-writer and editor of Paula’s former newsletter Cosmetics Counter Update. He currently manages and writes content for the Beautypedia and Paula’s Choice Web sites and continues to evaluate the latest research with Paula and the Paula’s Choice Research Team.
A Michigan native, Bryan has lived in the Seattle area long enough to consider the Northwest home. Along with his husband Ben, he is a doting “Dad” to three Pomeranians, one of whom routinely accompanies him to the office.
Desiree Stordahl is an ongoing contributor to articles concerning skin care and makeup at CosmeticsCop.com and has been trained under the personal guidance of Paula. Her writing flows from her passion for researching the cosmetics industry combined with her desire to help people find the best products for their skin. As part of the Paula’s Choice Research Team, Stordahl’s role includes evaluating cosmetic ingredients, investigating the physiological effects of skin-care products, and writing product reviews. She also travels around the world with Paula as a brand ambassador for Paula’s Choice, educating consumers near and far about skin care.
Stordahl was born and raised in Zillah, Washington and now calls the Seattle area home. She enjoys planning trips with her husband Jason, doing makeovers, and testing out her cooking skills on anyone who is willing to try her meals.

Yes, she has her own product line, and yes she rates her products the best but she still isn't forcing you to buy them. She explains that in the first few chapters. She's a beauty cop who wants women to decide for themselves the best products to choose. I looked up everything I use and some I'm pretty proud of and others I'm tempted to throw away. I've struggled with skin issues especially determining what skin type I have and how to effectively treat my skin. After reading some reviews I understood where I've gone wrong and found myself a new skin regime that's already done wonders for me. That's just the healthy skin part of this book. Educating yourself on make up brands and what you use makes a great difference as well! Now I know why I love certain make up products I own.
She gives reviews on EVERYTHING! Every brand out there from Chanel to Wet N' Wild. These reviews are completely unbiased and give you the facts.
