More Radiance! Try these 3 products to achieve it!


Get Radiance With This Trifecta of Products!
 
I use these 3 products together when I want an extra-dewy look without looking oily.  They also can be used separately depending on the look you want.
 
Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance primeris infused with Hyaluronic Acid, “good stuff”, to leave you hydrated all day long.  Described as “ Satin-smooth formula that illuminates, perfects and enhances radiance while hydrating for better makeup application.”
 
This primer is like butta!

Smashbox BB Water...A little drop will do ya! @smashbox


Hi Beauties!
I’m back with another foundation recommendation to bring the “dew” back into our skin especially now since we are all feeling dehydrated from cold weather… and possibly too much celebrating from the holidays. 
 
First comment made when a client sits in my chair: “I don’t want to look cakey.”  Which refers to having the look of so much makeup on the face, someone will want to serve you a glass of milk with it. (A long ago Mac Cosmetic joke, sorry)
 
Matte is a HUGE phenomenon in the beauty scene now.

I'm a 48 year old makeup artist and I want an amazing foundation! Here are a few...

I have worked with A LOT of makeup lines through being an employee of theirs to using their products on my many, many clients as a personal makeup artist over the years.. Needless to say, I've gotten lots of free makeup to try over the past 20+ years. Some good, some great and some meh.

My perspective has obviously changed since I have aged. Of course, makeup is going to look different on me as it would on a younger person so I find myself in the trial and error game. 

Full disclosure, I work for a few makeup companies now as a freelancer and will be including products of theirs in my product suggestions.

Hi everyone!
Let me introduce myself. My name is Jill and I have been a makeup artist since I was 24 and I'm turning 48 soon;/ I started my career right out of college with Clinique then progressed to the most artsy line on the market today, Make Up For Ever. I then moved to Chicago and was with Mac Cosmetics for 10 years and then moved on to being a independent makeup artist working in film and TV production and print for 12 years.

I also was a celebrity makeup artist but a later blog on that.
