There has long been a feeling that art and makeup are joined at the hip when looked at on a professional level. If ever there was proof of this, you need only look at the career of Dany Sanz, who went from fine art to makeup literally overnight. Dany, a former fine art student, was launched into the world of beauty when friends asked her to do the makeup for a play that they were performing in. She quickly realized that her art background was the perfect experience needed for taking some risks in the makeup world. Her creativity shone through in everything that she touched, to the point where she became one of the most in demand makeup artists in the business.
Dany could very well have made a great living doing just that, but she has always possessed a keen eye for color and innovation. She felt that the products at her disposal could be better, brighter, and bolder, which is why she set about launching her own line back in 1984. That was the year that MAKE UP FOR EVER was born, and there has been no looking back ever since.
One of the most difficult aspects of applying makeup is getting it on in a way that looks natural, with no streaks or clumps anywhere to be seen. It is a task that many women struggle with on a daily basis, but the good news is there’s help out there for those that really need it. At first glance, the Beauty Blender sponges may look like colorful eggs, but they are in fact an incredibly effective makeup tool that, when used properly, can virtually eliminate many of the common mistakes made when applying makeup.
The Beauty Blender sponge applicator has become the go-to choice for makeup artists and big name Hollywood stars, and it’s easy to understand why. The egg shape of the sponge has nothing to do with aesthetics, and everything to do with function. Regular applicators do not adapt to the contours of your face and simply cannot match the performance of the Beauty Blender sponge. Dampening the sponge slightly will make it expand and get softer, making for a gentle feeling on the skin and an even cleaner application of your makeup.
One of the most magical things about the movies is the ability to be able to look at all of the incredible stuff happening on the big screen and believe that it’s real. This is done by a combination of great acting, direction, special effects, and make-up, all of which come together to deliver an incredible experience to the audience. The one thing that seldom gets discussed from the items mentioned in that list is the make-up, but it is an integral part of getting the characters to look just right. Getting the make-up wrong can lead to you being pulled out of the believability of what you are watching.
If you were to ask the average make-up artist working in film and theater today what was in their professional kit, you would likely hear quite a few mention the name of Ben Nye. That is because there are few other brands that can match the quality delivered by Ben Nye makeup, which shouldn’t really come as a surprise when you consider that the founder was one of the leading names in the industry back in the day. Ben Nye plied his trade at a time when computer generated effects were still decades away, and when make-up was more necessary than ever to paint the character on screen.
Listen up party people, I made a couple really cool pages I think you are going to love on the Frends Beauty website! First, we have a page where EVERYTHING is $5 or less. Visit now at http://www.frendsbeauty.com/special-sales/five-and-under.html. Turns out we have hundreds of products on our site for $5 or less, so when you want to stock up cheap, but holiday or birthday presents, this should help!
I also made a page containing all of our deals. At first we had a 'Daily Deal' that only had one great product on sale at a time. This is actually challenging to manage and I don't think it does much for you, so I made a page where we will put a whole bunch of products on sale at once, and rotate them randomly. So check out http://www.frendsbeauty.com/special-sales/specials.html now and often to see what is available. We plan to have maybe 15 - 30 products on at any given time. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Sometimes the discounts will be a little more than Frends With Benefits pro discounts, sometimes they will be absolutely MASSIVE. And they will always be random, so don't try to guess the algorithm, I promise there is none...it will be completely random so make sure you check back often so you don't miss ridiculous deals!
