Jemma Kid ‘Make-Up Secrets’ has become a recent addition to the health, beauty, fashion, lifestyle resource library. This hardcover edition makes for some easy fireside reading and might also be good inspiration for new techniques when you go to make-up every day.
Gifted to me by naturally beautiful forty-something sister, this book has solid information for women of all ages and make-up style. Twenty-two, twenty, fourteen and twelve-year-old daughters all found it engaging and helpful. Valentine’s Day gift idea for yourself or someone else special?
Had an enriching hour restocking twenty year old daughter in Sephora before she headed back to Boston College for second semester. She is a make-up and bronzer addict and uses it daily. So, to stay current picked up this Diorskin Nude Tan. Beautiful blue box states: the 1st makeup by Dior that warms the natural skin tone and adjusts to ambient light for a healthy glow all year round. With every application the skin becomes more radiant and energized with a beautiful natural glow. How can you resist that? Love the shiny silver compact and the mini kabuki brush that comes with it. Thought a bigger brush was needed so picked up the Chanel Powder brush at a different store. Love Chanel make-up products and can only get Chanel fragrance at Sephora.
Jemma suggests using a small brush for more control. With some practice realized she is right. The brush that comes with the bronzer makes the application, combined with her diagrams on suggested shading areas, pretty darn foolproof. Follow her lead and the process of ‘bronzing’ in February will look natural and healthy. The bigger brush is a useful tool for a final finish.
Since the high temperature will be 12 degrees today, every day dress is foregoing the outdoor healthy look by skipping the skiing and chooses fireside reading, working, and posting. The bronze look will come from the blue box.
Thank you sister for great new book. Always up for fresh ideas and Make-Up Secrets.
Have a great Saturday. xoxo
