After trying Artis Brushes I don’t want to use anything else, you won’t either.  I tried three brushes from Artis and I have my eye on 2 more (actually I’m dying for them).  Artis brushes are visually gorgeous.  They look sleek and stylish.  You will want to show them off on your vanity, these are not brushes that you put away.  The actual brush is so soft, definitely the softest brush I have ever used. The “hairs” on the brush are man-made fibres called CosmeFibre and have microscopically tapered ends for  a smoother makeup application.  They are easy to use and hold which allows me to quickly apply my makeup because I don’t have to go back and reblend.

Growing up in California, I have been exposed to the sun more than most.  I also lead an active lifestyle, whether it’s swimming in the ocean, hiking or just having lunch outside my skin is constantly exposed to the sun.  I also do quite a bit of traveling to mostly sunny destinations. Even though my mom made me apply an SPF as early as five years old, I do tend to forget to apply it now as an adult.  I have my fair share of sun spots and wrinkles from squinting in the sun. I tried a couple of products from DNA Renewal, a skin care line that uses ingredients that are plant-based enzymes that are extracted from natural sources.  These ingredients are absorbed into the epidermis and skin creating healthier skin and slowing down degeneration of collagen.  DNA Renewal will help reverse DNA damage from pollutants.
