Before I went to The Makeup Show I had been chatting with the super Melissa from CoverFX, and she mentioned that I needed to make sure and see her coworker, Wanda, who would be representing CoverFX at the show. You better believe that I did! In addition to getting to meet her, I got to watch while she did a makeover on the wonderful Sarah, from StyleItOnline.com.
Also, I got to do “Da Bump” with Celebrity Makeup Artist and CoverFX Pro Artist, Nathan Johnson. Once again my “vast” knowledge of makeup artist giants came in handy (*sarcasm) as I had no idea this fun guy is who he is, ie. Project Runway MUA, multitude of tv show work and off-Broadway shows, too. Gawd. So, yeah, I didn’t really get any deep info from him except he and I could rock out dancing all night long. Which, really, sometimes is more important to me than what TM to wear. Ha.
*Thanks to Melissa I was able to try SkinTintFX tinted moisturizer. I gotta admit, it scared me when I first got it, because it looked *SO* dark when it came out of the bottle, I thought there was NO WAY this was going to work on me.
Boy was I wrong. This TM glides on so easily and the color is so sheer, it isn’t too dark at all. Just gives me a hint of sun color, without looking orange or muddy. It is also so light that it doesn’t make my face look matted down or heavy, which is a huge plus for me. And, unlike other mineral products, this doesn’t make my face itchy when I wear it. So nice.
