Drugstore Gems. L’Oreal Paris Magic Smooth Soufflé and L’Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Gentle Mineral Makeup SPF 19. I was recently on a desperate search for the right foundation for my face. Sometimes it happens to the best of us when nothing works for some reason. I was looking for a gentle foundation that is easy and not too messy to apply. Not too oily and shiny and not too dry either. I found Magic Smooth Soufflé and True Match Naturale Gentle Mineral Makeup. I also found the perfect shade for me Sun Beige which suites my light olive skin so it doesn’t make me look too pale.

Q. How did you get to where you are today?
Dex: For the past 10 years of my life, the process of creating a beautifully crafted picture and stunning imagery was an everyday inspiration for me. As a stylist for the Ford agency, runway- and fashion-shoot producer and CEO of my own image consulting company called La Mode in New York, I was able to experience the height of fashion and beauty in action on an everyday basis and had the honor of working with the best professional makeup artists, photographers, equipment and tools in the industry. I wanted to bring these inspiring and exciting elements of a runway show, a red carpet moment or a fashion shoot, into one location and have it come alive for any woman who came into the studio. DEX New York Beauty Atrium and Studios, my all-in-one makeup, hair and photography production studio that is open to professionals AND every woman, is my vision and dream enacted.
Vera Farmiga was sporting red lips at the Up in the Air LA Premier on Monday, November 30th, 2009, Westwood, Los Angeles, CA. Vera was wearing a dress by Dolce & Gabbana and her makeup look was created by Tina Turnbow, a Natural Makeup Artist.
“Vera’s look was simple glamour: Her dress was ephemeral – a white, almost grecian Dolce & Gabbana, and I wanted her makeup look to shine forth her beautiful features, while keeping that simple, effortless air.”-Tina Turnbow
Face Products: “Vera has a beautiful, fair complexion, so I kept it simple – with a lightweight foundation and finished with a light, rosy blush.
Foundation: Almay Pure Blends Mineral Makeup in Fair – “l love that this foundation is 97.4% natural”
Blush: Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in Blushed – “It’s a beautiful cream stick that creates very natural-looking rosy cheeks.” Mineral Fusion Blush in
Trace “a soft, baby pink to highlight cheek bones”
Powder: Tarte Provocateur SPF 8 Pressed Mineral Powder & Compact in Fair
