Tatcha hosted an amazing event last night in honor of the launch of the Dewy Skin Creme, their newest addition to their treasure trove of skin care.
The creme does not disappoint. It’s leaves a dewy finish to the skin, it’s rich and luxurious, with a very clean and light signature fragrance that makes you feel like you’ve walked through a wildflower laden field on a gorgeous spring day. (Seriously, it smells magical.) Not only. the effects can be felt all day. As I type, my “first go”, sans any makeup or additional products, I’ve been wearing the creme for over 12 hours….and my skin still feels as moisturized as the moment I put it on.
Reusable makeup remover cloth that lasts! I was sent some Mitty's to try out and so far they're a godsend! This is NOT an ad. Just really excited about it. Almost completely removes the need for cotton rounds and makeup wipes from my personal makeup routine. You can also use them to apply toners, serums…any liquid product really. Easy to clean. I just use my face soap or regular soap.
Sharing some of my favorite kit items: Makeup, Skincare and Cases for the Artist on the go!
In this industry there are so many paths you can take: Working at a brick and mortar store or salon, working for a manufacturer or cosmetics line, an FX makeup lab, beauty blogging, editorial styling, or styling hair and faces for film. How do you pick? And once you've picked how do you start? What should you charge? Then what?! Here I impart my story, and some things I have learned so far...
We have lots to thank the Sumerian civilization for--the invention of the wheel, sail boats, amazing irrigation systems, the concept of the city* and lastly, lipstick. From 2500 to 1000 BC. the ancient Mesopotami (modern-day Iraq and Kuwait), used pulverized semiprecious stones and jewels to make pastes for beautifying the lips and skin. Dried insects such as the cochineal (used to make carmine), berries, and clay were also used to create pigments and were quite readily available to all as they did not require money nor chemicals to produce. It is said the Sumerian Queen Shub-ad preferred a mixture of crushed red rock and white lead.
Travel size minis are always useful. Keep'em in your gym bag, the overnight "boyfriend" bag, your purse or even... y'know... travel bag! If you're a pro artist, mini size versions are perfect for set bags or creating neat and organized "actor bags".
Note: I do not get paid to post or promote ANY products whatsoever. These are simply my personal favorite items that I wouldn't leave without!
