I love makeup lines created by models, because if anyone knows about the transformative power of cosmetics, they do. Stacey Schieffelin, of Your Best Friend Cosmetics, is a Ford model with a very specific vision when it comes to the power of beauty. Working with some of the most advanced ingredients and technology available today, Stacey has infused the line with ybf’s Smart Active Complex, an exclusive, paraben-free formula, enriched with extracts from the earth.
I liked the idea of Your Best Friend’s “goof-proof controllable, personalized beauty products” with shades carefully selected to enhance and adjust to a variety of skin tones and intensities. I was intrigued by the Photo Finish Pressed Powder Palette ($29.80) with Italian, triple milled, pressed powders in light, medium and deep colors inside a holiday-cheery red mirrored compact. All YBF products are infused with a “Smart Active Immune Complex™” and enriched with extracts from the earth. This complex is said to act as your personal skin monitor to trigger your immune system to help protect against environmental damage. And as to beautifying, the powders are blendable and silky, and perfect for most complexions (from Ivory to Ebony) to contour, highlight, and “photo finish” your complexion.
Will this YBF palette be your new best friend? Maybe or maybe not, but it might be a great gift for your best friend. While not everyone is expert at using contour, don’t be afraid to try. Even if you’re a bit wary of going too far with contour, the sheer to full coverage powders make experimentation, easy. Try setting your makeup, or adding a bit of highlight. There isn’t any shimmer or glitter to distract. Use the velour puff (or try a soft brush) and dabble a bit! Visit http://www.ybfgirlfriends.com and check out YBF on www.hsn.com
