Besame's Beauteous Brightening Violet Powder

I have been a fan of Besame cosmetics for some time now, so I am surprised it took me this long to try the Brightening Violet Powder. Now, I cannot go without it (as well as the Merlot lipstick)!  Great product, dreamy scent, and fantastic packaging.  What's in your beauty arsenal, gals?

A Real Ringer

Still swooning over the results of my recent collaboration with the immensely talented and dreamy Hello June Photography for Adeline's Attic Vintage.   Everyone involved just "got" what I was hoping for, stylistically. Look how perfectly model/makeup artist Aki, and photographer Safauna embodied the 30s aesthetic through hair, makeup, lighting, pose, overall composition?? Doesn't Aki look like the twin of the Rolf Armstrong image dug up by my friend, the Sydney Flapper?  While I'm on the subject of the make-up, a shout out to Besame Cosmetics. We used the brightening violet powder and Merlot lipstick from this brand for the look, and since I'm a loyal wearer of this brand, I was unsurprised that the results for the shoot were stunning. Swoon!
