The O Report recommends her revolutionary Root Concealer Touch Up Spray because it expertly covers large patches of gray hairs at your roots and temples when you just can't make it to the salon - it will give you an extra week or two between color appointments. It's safe for all hair types, is super easy to apply, dries quickly and stays put until you wash it out. It's also ammonia and peroxide free.

His revolutionary how-to book "Making Faces" sealed his fame and instantly became a classic. In 2001 he launched his own makeup line that is still going strong today even though he died in 2002 after suffering from the rare disorder acromegaly.
