Get the Funk Out

I worked on a music documentary with Gary Cherone & Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme (More Than Words fame) about the lost art of music videos from the 80's & 90's. The hardcore rock and roll boys in their cool clothes and touch of swagger, both sat down in my chair and said, " just a little powder please. I'm cool. " I love it. A little ragged edge on a man's face is sexy. A face that's been lived in always tells a story. I've never met a music man I didn't like. I dug the 80's, the long hair, the skin tight jeans, the leather, the creativity. Chanel's Natural Finish Pressed Powder Translucent 3 and great lighting with of touch of blue & red hues set the perfect mood. The band is touring and back on the road. I'm going to pull out my skinny jeans and fringe boots and check 'em out.

Keep It Simple

It's hot & humid, your make up is melting off. Skip the foundation & spot treat with concealer. I love Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage & Shu Uemura's Pro Concealers. Secret Camouflage's two-shade system works on even the toughest dark circles. The creamy texture goes on smooth & easy and bags go bye-bye. Shu's Pro Concealers are an absolute must for spot treating & under the eyes. The coverage is just thick enough, but looks completely natural leaving the skin flawless & pretty. The click on system is genius for carrying a few shades to mix things up.
