Bright & Brisk

We were finally graced with some chilly weather in Atlanta; chilly enough for me to dig out my dress-length pea coat and warm, fuzzy scarves. In celebration of the highly anticipated colder weather (at least on my part) and the opportunity to cozy up in outerwear, I applied foundation with a recently received Sonia Kashuk brush set and asked the Mystery Man to take a few shots.

I've always had blotchy skin, and no matter how thorough I am with cleansing products my skin has always been prone to blemishes. I prefer a thin layer of foundation or tinted moisturizer before leaving the house to help even out my complexion. I've been using the same cream foundation for years but I was never thrilled with the application process. I tried sponges and a whole range of application brushes but the coverage was always too heavy... until now.

My mother gifted me with this Sonia Kashuk brush set below for Christmas and the stippling brush within provides the perfect distribution of foundation. It gives you an airbrushed finish every time, without skimping on the coverage! For the price ($24.99 at Target) and the case it comes with (which I've already worn as a clutch) this brush set is a divine steal.

 Both the coat and scarf were Black Friday purchases from 2010. Time really flies.
