*Be sure to thoroughly wash away mineral makeup before hitting the sack!

Even so-called “makeup so pure, you can sleep in it” is not a healthy choice for most skin types. While you sleep, your skin works to renew itself. Opt for ingredients, such as vitamin-A and hyaluronic acid, which aid in the PM cellular renewal process. Just because you may be able to get away with sleeping in mineral makeup from time to time, doesn’t mean it should become a habit! Thoroughly remove makeup and additional debris with a PH-balanced, skin-softening cleanser such as Peel Rx Brightening Cleanser.

*Choose wisely and approach ALL makeup with caution!
Mineral makeup doesn’t guarantee a beautiful finish nor does it guarantee clear skin. Like any foundation or powder, choosing a formula that’s right for your skin type is half the battle. The second stage of the melee is correct makeup application and removal! The soothing, anti-inflammatory properties of zinc oxide can turn irritating and occlusive in a matter of days if applied with a heavy hand. By the same token, be sure to thoroughly remove ever last bit of makeup-residue with a gentle exfoliating toner such as Glycolic Peel Rx Advanced Toner Mist. To further prevent cosmetic acne, maintain a regular peeling regimen with the aid of chemical peels. Skin peels work to renew the surface of the skin (and beyond) by sloughing off pore-clogging debris and excess dead skin. Hello gorgeous!

*“Test out” mineral makeup before a big event to ensure its right for you!
Due to mineral makeup’s high concentration of physical sunscreens, a white cast is often distastefully unveiled by a camera’s flash. Always experiment with mineral makeup before the “big day” to ensure your complexion doesn’t go from glowy to pasty and gray with the click of a button.

Since we’re all about behind scenes action over at MyFDB, we enjoy paying homage to those who work hard bringing amazing photo shoots together. An integral part of this force are makeup artists, whose jobs can range from touch ups to wild colors and body paint. We feel both incredible and bizarre makeup cause a shoot to be much more memorable. Not to mention, the power of adding character to an actor or creating a new look is exhilarating.In honor of our makeup artistry friends, we’re giving away two tickets to The Makeup Show NYC. Two winners and their friends will enjoy this annual industry event that highlights tricks of the trade and includes panels from noteworthy artists. Psst…there’s also amazing deals on cosmetics at the event too.Experienced artist, Tegan Taylor (Avatar, Adventures of Tintin, Yellow Submarine) will talk about “The Age of Digital Makeup” from the era of digital film to the process of working in digital makeup and how it has affected her work. Taylor will discuss skills to understanding makeup application, technology, and character effects. Charlie Green (Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz) will be presenting, “Making Up With,” where she’ll give a first hand glimpse into the creative energy that has allowed her to make her mark on the fashion and celebrity scene. Note taking is a must for these panels!
