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

danessa myricks beauty vision cream cover foundation

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.

TSABD Edit: Mattifying Skincare Products of Interest

Mattifying

(I normally post my TSABD Edits on Tuesdays but this one took longer than I anticipated plus I’m going to be in Iceland next week so I wanted to get this posted before I leave)

Though it doesn’t feel like it right now (I’m in NYC), warmer temps will be here soon which means the quest for matte skin shall soon rise again. I know all too well the plight of the oily-skinned: you know the oil is a gift because it will help you look younger on average as you age, but fighting to de-Jermaine Jacksonize your skin can be rough. Womp womp.
