The Perfect Canvas

By Terry
I admit it. There are brands I adore.
I love them for different reasons. Some for the quality, others out of loyalty, and some for the quirky, fun products. Beauty is a billion dollar industry, you can't try it all. It's like trying to hit every NYC restaurant, and eat at them all. It'll never happen, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun trying. Beautiful skin has always been my number one concern; as a woman, model, and makeup artist. A flawless finish is easy to pull off when the canvas is 18 and a supermodel. It becomes more of a challenge when you hit middle age. Did I just say those words, out loud??!!! I did, and am proud to wear this face that has aged gracefully. There are tricks to a stunning face at every age, it's called H2O, exercise and a fabulous MU product. Luxe Makeup & Skincare work wonders  rejuvenating the skin, covering laugh lines, sun damage, blemishes, and under-eye circles.
Go crazy with lips, shadows, mascara, but never skimp on face products or foundation.
Armani LSF remains my numero uno go-to foundation. Shu's Nobara Concealer sticks are high on my list and in my MU kit.
I have coveted By Terry from afar. When Alison Brod sent Light-Expert, Perfect Foundation Brush, Touch Expert Advanced, and Touche Veloutee, I did a dance. The get up & shake your booty, raise your arms high in the air, kind. Whoot, whoot! I immediately opened them and took them for a test drive. Simply heaven.
