Featured Blog

My blog was featured on one of my Top favorite makeup sites !
I consider it quite an honor because I am absolutely in LOVE LOVE LOVVVVVE with their products. Honestly, to hear me talk about them on set, you would think they are paying me to (ummm, ps. they're not, but what a great idea!).There is not a foundation that I have ever used that makes for a more flawless, natural look.I like to say "it's as if tiny lightbulbs are under your skin" and I haven't met one person that disagrees with me after seeing themselves. Whether it be a model or celebrity or a bride, if I want the perfect dewey finish the only products that even come to mind are the Moisture Foundation and The Natural Lighting Powder.....and here I go again, singing their praises, I can't help myself,and it's contagious.Oliva Palermo tied with Madonna for "Most Commanding red carpet look

and loved how I did her makeup, Parker Posey loved it so much she carried it in her handbag on set of her latest movie!

So not only is Parker a KoGenDo fan, but her character Susan in the upcoming movie "Price Check" swears by it too!

Here is the page on their website that features yours truly, and I feel very honored.

And friends can smell BS a mile away.  So I'm not going to candy coat it, if I love it, I'll scream it from the rooftops, and if I don't....well.
