Fridays with Felicia: Volume 7

Fridays with Felicia: An intimate look behind the curtain as I share my favorite style/ beauty discoveries and ThisThatBeauty shenanigans from previous week.

Phew! What a week! This week’s edition of “Fridays with Felicia” barely made it to publish!

Most of my time this week was spent on set in Boston and New Jersey (see pic to the right) doing makeup for a really cool web-series. I can’t say too much just yet but I can reveal that Cover Girl is the makeup sponsor.

Other than Lash Blast, I have never used Cover Girl products professionally. I was pleasantly surprised with the performance one product in particular. Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer in Ebony Bronze is camera ready and looks great on film. I used it for performing artist Shea Rose (incredible young artist, rock n roll/Lenny Kravitz/Lauryn Hill/Betty Davis cop her CD now!) and was very happy with the color pay off, performance, and longevity of coverage.

At $8.18, Cover Girl Ebony Bronze Bronzer is a great value…its one of those mass market products that acts like its high end. Werq! Here are two pictures of Shea Rose wearing the aforementioned bronzer. The look called for classic “easy, breezy, beautiful, Cover Girl”…did I succeed?…Leave a comment! And let me go on record saying that Ms Shea Rose is as beautiful inside as she is outside. She was a pleasure!

Some of the shooting for the web-series took place outdoors. I would have been lost without Dr Dennis Gross SPF 30 wipes. These handy wipes are great on set or on the go because they are extremely convenient. Just whip out an individual packet, rip open, and apply with the pre-treated towelette. I shared my my SPF wipes with the crew…I love spreading the sun protection love! Stay tuned for an upcoming piece on June 14…I will rundown my current favorite, innovative SPF products!

Another useful artist tool for the artist on set is the DLIST Set Bag. Mine travels with me to every set. Its the perfect size for set essentials like powder, brushes, basic eye shadows, gloss, wipes, etc. Click here for my previous extensive review of DLSH Set Bag.

Hugs and kisses!

Happy Friday everyone!
