very nice- I'm new to face painting, and am very intrigued by one-stroke. I've been searching around for practice and your roses are some of the best on YT! Thanks for sharing!

The Looking Glass paint is definitely a silver tone- when lit it actually looks bluish. I was going to ask how the hurricanes in final pic were lit because I'm desperately trying to make gold mercury glass for my wedding centerpieces...

What an odd experience! It almost sounds like there was something on the brush heads that you were reacting to!

I own a Clarisonic that hasn't seen the light of day in months. Even with the sensitive head, using it once daily (and then eventually every other day), I still experienced extreme irritation and dryness. Like you, I wanted to be objective, so nothing else about my routine changed.

After about 6 weeks, the dryness had gotten so bad that my skin had begun to crack- that's when I finally gave up. Within 3 days the problem had almost completely subsided.

When I published these results on my own site, along with some additional research (and my thoughts on why Clarisonic is so popular) I got some of the angriest responses I've ever had! Makes me chuckle, but I know you can identify :)

Story
Tagline
Mommy, makeup artist, former education/english lit/theater major. I love to read, learn, teach & play- sometimes all at the same time!!
Introduction
Homebase is Cincinnati, OH, and yes, I'm proud to be an Ohio girl! I love the fact that there's a Saks and Tiffany & Co. downtown, but I can drive 15 minutes and see a cornfield!

I've been a makeup artist and skin care buff for over 15 years, in just about every realm of the business you can be in- I've worked retail, managed & trained for major companies, done makeup for theatre, advertising, weddings; you name it! (My last "gig" was and impromptu makeover party for the kids in my extended family!)

I'm engaged to the love of my life, soul mate, high-school sweetheart, life partner and other half of 17 years, Brad, and we have an incredible 3-year-old daughter.

I spend most of my time raising my baby, blogging, tweeting and reading.
