Real Girl Real Beauty: Shannon Cusello

One thing is certain about Shannon Cusello — she's darling (with the Twitter handle to prove it). The former salon manager and current Girl Friday for Shah & Shah Jewelers has long held our attention with her glossy locks and gamine, retro-yet-modern makeup. Add to that her impeccable, vintage-infused style and the fact that her new gig has her dressing up in diamonds on the reg, and we just had to sit her down to talk shop. Ahead, her secrets for looking fabulous — you can borrow every last one!
