Lindsay told me that she buys all her makeup at The Body Shop, in part because that's just the only place she's ever bought makeup (ever? really??) and in part because the company actively advocates for protecting our planet, defending human rights, and never tests on animals. Beauty with a concience - pretty cool. Kassina is also a fan of The Body Shop's makeup, in particular the Shimmer Cubes. They last forever, can be layered on over other makeup and always add that extra pop of wow to her eyes.
Stephanie has some of the most beautiful skin you will ever see. She occasionally wears concealer, never bothers with foundation, and always looks fresh and glowy. She attributes it to her skin care routine which includes Mary Kay's Timewise 3-in-1 Cleanser. This one product cleanses, exfoliates and freshens. It also packs an anti-aging punch, so Steph is going to look amazing for years to come.
Another friend with great skin is Evie. She's just begun using Bobbi Brown's Luminous Moisturizing Foundation and concedes that, while it's a little spendy, this stuff is magic. It leaves her skin feeling nice and moisurized, looking refreshed. Must be all the collagen-boosting, skin firming ingredients. That Bobbi...she's always got something great in her beauty case!
One more favorite of Eve's is Redken's Urban Experiment 7 Velvet Gelatine Silk-infused Gel. The name is a mouthful, but the concept is simple: comb the gel through damp hair, blow dry, then spend the day tossing your velvety, silky, luscious locks.
