Putting On My Face



It should not come as any shock that  j’adore makeup. I love the magic and confidence that comes through the use of potions and powders. I to this day remember my first experience experimenting with eye shadows. I was 14 and with the lavender Cover Girl palette I was able to make my eyes pop, like a woman.

I have several friends who are make up artists and learned at elite schools in Chicago. The makeup these ladies learned with was Make Up For Ever. The make up they use on models for photo shoots is high definition powered by Make Up For Ever. Thus meaning my go to Make Up is Make Up For Ever.

Make Up For Ever was founded by Dany Sanz with a mission to appear flawlessly on actors and models on film. It wasn’t until later that it occurred to her to sell her products to the general public, us.


Yesterday I had a mission of great importance: Operation Match Skin Tone. You see, I know what color matches me in the Summer and unfortunately my beloved shade doesn't match my pasty, ghost like, see through, skin tone. 


Then I found it, it simply answers to #120 Soft Sand, but it works magic Houdini would be in awe of.

imageI was happy, I felt relief. My neck and face were now one match again. But I wondered still, could my look be even more polished? I’ve never liked powders alone but what about a finishing powder that remains matte? Does such a thing exist from Make Up For Ever?

And there it was, I swear it may have been smiling at me in its true form.

Basically you need to head to Sephora and find their Duo Mat Powder and HD Invisible Cover Foundation. You will fall in love.
