One, but not done! Happy Birthday Facemaid!!!

Within this space, I have found an outlet to express myself creatively, emotionally, and artistically, while sharing and celebrating the beauty I am blessed to experience in this non-traditional career (I was supposed to go to Law School), in the most dynamic city in the world (mostly New York), with my family, friends, and clients(too many to name!)  I wanted this to be a space of beauty, to share and celebrate the places, people, and product that add a little, or a lot, of pretty in my life.

I have learned so many things since launching this blog:  To author the definition of my name, no matter how unconventional, to use my voice, because I have things to say; and most of all, during the moments my brain has felt empty, to equally celebrate and appreciate the little things, where the most beautiful lessons can be found.

We’re a year old, and this is just the beginning!!!  There are so many adventures to come.:)FullSizeRender-106

THANK YOU, for stopping by, and letting me share with you!!!

exes and oohs,

Jennifer Fleming,

‘Touched Shine’ | Touche Éclat

Like a golden magic wand possessing the power to wipe away a 60- hour work week just in time for Friday night; the perfect fix for the five o’clock makeup meltdown, or to simply add the glow of a Cinderella- inspired twinkle in your eye, YSL Touche Éclat allows you to discreetly erase imperfections caused by lining, and life…

Terry de Gunzburg, of byTerry, is the mastermind behind Touche Éclat, created over 20 years ago and is one of the beauty industries most coveted products.  In spite of its worldwide cult fame amongst makeup artists and the faces they paint, there are still beauty enthusiasts who find the click of the golden tube a bit of a conundrum.

Touche Éclat is perfect product for the ‘I’m not a makeup person,’ to the full on ‘Paris is Burning’ beat. It is glow, a highlighter, can sometimes double down as a concealer, and simply described, Touche is the equivalent of a Chantelle Lace Chemise; it covers, but the skin still peeks through.

 

Touche Éclat Tricks:

•Less is more; one of the few times you will hear me say this!

•If you are purchasing for the first time, ask for help getting matched. YSL Beauté extended the shade range, so ovations for 12, yes 12, options!!!

•Blend out by tapping with your ring finger; or try using a blending brush for a super sheer effect.

•Below I posted a few of my favorite places for Touche Éclat touch-up tricks.

Click for Glow,
