I typically only post ONE TSABD Edit a week on Tuesdays, but I’ve been summer vacaying (or at least trying to—I’ve still been working) and had a bit of a build-up on products that both came in and that I purchased myself, so I figured I might as well churn them out so I don’t have piles of makeup looking at me every time I walk into my office :x

TSABD Edit: Danessa Myricks Beauty Vision Cream Cover Foundation Review + Swatches on Dark Skin

I’ve reviewed probably hundreds of foundations over the last ten years I’ve had this blog (we’ll be officially 10 in November—sheesh, NO clue what I should do to celebrate). But today’s review is very special because I’ve known the creator and brand founder for yeaaaaars. I used to be a makeup artist and one of the things one does to network as well as further your education is to work with more established artists. About 6 or 7 years ago I drove to DC to work a makeup event that Danessa Myricks coordinated and I learned so much from that one experience. Danessa is not only an amazing makeup artist who has consulted many of our favorite makeup brands, she’s an educator, she’s a photographer, and she’s the head of her beauty empire. AND on top of all of this, she’s the sweetest person EVER. (OK and she’s incredibly gorgeous to boot) I was honored when she sent over her range of the Danessa Myricks Beauty Vision Cream Cover Foundation to test out.
