Well - hi again!
It's been another long while in-between postings, but my chronic migraines don't really seem inclined to be leaving any time soon, so while I send a pox to my migraines, I'm tapping at the keyboard once again.
Many of us in the field of makeup know the regular brand names you see in department stores, as well as the pro-lines that are off the beaten path. Myself - I LOVE makeup lines that are off the beaten path - I love discovering new products and techniques. New to me perhaps - but many of these (what I call) off broadway brands have been around longer than I have, which always makes me happy!
Eve Pearl. Know that name? Heard that name? I happened upon Eve Pearls book "Plastic Surgery Without the Surgery" a few years back. I believe I had heard about her from "The View". Who can resist such a title? Plastic Surgery Without the Surgery? Nice. I'm all for no surgery.
This book truly is wonderful. I purchased it back in 2004 when it was released, and constantly referring to it as a skill refresher and guide.
Eve Pearl - The Concealer
A key product that Eve Pearl is known for is her salmon concealer. I FINALLY got my hands on the concealer a couple of months ago and it is outstanding. So outstanding, I was enthusiastically showing a client, and ended up giving her mine. (A client and a friend - she had a new job and wanted to look her best!)
This concealer is amazing, truly amazing. I purchased mine in "Light" and it is creamy and delightful, and does the job a concealer is SUPPOSED to do. My old undereyes (which will celebrate their 50'th birthday very soon) look spectacular.
Eve Pearl - the Makeup Line
I'm so sold on this line, that I just recently (last week) made a purchase of some staples to put into my kit. I can't wait to try out everything in this line, because if the concealer is any indication, I've entered into HG (holy grail) territory when it comes to product.
So - bottom line - check out this book, and check out her concealer. Read it - study it - refer to it. She covers everything in a very easy to understand and well illustrated way. I know you'll want to try this concealer once you've read the book. I've already given one away, so check out her site: http://www.evepearl.com
Happy reading, and even happier concealing!
