Sun-Kissed!

7 Jul

I have finally found a great bronzer!!  Let me tell you, the search has been long and it has not been easy.  I am super fair-skinned so it has been hard to find a bronzer that creates that beautiful sun-kissed look!  I hate it when people look like J.Lo from the neck up and a snowman from the neck down, so after trying several products I came across Trish McEvoy Golden Glow Face Color ($35 www.trishmcevoy.com).  There is a soft copper bronzer on one side with a pink shimmery blush on the other.  The best part is that this does not give you a “glittery” look like other bronzers.  You just sweep your brush over the powder and apply it to your cheek bones or any other places you want a little glow.  This is very buildable so you can make it dark or light depending on your mood.  This really brightens up your face and is perfect for summer and fair skin.  If you want to try a bronzer for the first time, this is a great choice, this one won’t make you look ridiculous.  Enjoy adding a little color to your cheeks ladies!!

Brush It On

10 Jan

I have been collecting make-up brushes from all different brands and I have my favorites from each.  However…the more I use my Trish McEvoy brushes the more and more I think they are the best.  I bought one of the Trish McEvoy holiday brush sets last Christmas because I “needed” several new brushes and they seem to be the best.  Even when I have looked at other cosmetic counters they always say “Trish has the BEST brushes!”  Her brushes are made of 100% natural hair which makes them really soft and for smooth application of foundation, powders, or eyeshadow.  Her eyeshadow brushes are amazing, I really like the Tapered Blending Brush ($32 www.trishmcevoy.com) also know as the “Pony” brush, it gets the crease perfect!  A good way to start a nice set of brushes is to either collect them one at a time starting with the basics or start off with a basic set such as, The Essential Brush Collection ($145 www.trishmcevoy.com), this is 5 of the basic brushes from her collection which will get you started on your own collection.  If you really want to go for it you can get The Power of Tools Brush Collection ($245 www.nordstrom.com), which is 10 of the best brushes from the line and will really complete your brush collection.  The sets are a great value because if you buy the brushes on an individual basis they can run between $30-$50 each.  A good set of brushes will last you for many years as long as you wash them and take care of them properly.  Since you wear make-up pretty much everyday, a nice brush set is a good investment to make the process easier not to mention make it look better.  You should try a brush from the line or go have your make-up done by one of their artists so you can see how well they work.  I promise you will want to use these brushes everyday!
