MAKE UP FOR EVER was founded by Dany SANZ in 1984. Her goal was to respond to the needs of professional makeup artists… 

I first heard of this product at the beginning stages of my career… I found it like nothing else with it’s heavy pigmented eye-shadows, lip colors, shimmers and glitters… Something that was almost unheard of at that time. I felt a bit intimidated but found when walking up to a MAKE UP FOR EVER counter, a menagerie of possibility. It was 1985 when I became curious about what one could do with so much color on a face….

Fast forward, several years later I began working at Barney’s New York Madison Ave. where in 1997 Farrah Fawcett at the age of 50 did a shoot for PLAYBOY with everyone wanting to know her secret?  MAKE UP FOR EVER  face & body…… 

TOWN & COUNTRY WEDDINGS Spring/Summer 2013 Stylist Secrets ~Hair & Makeup For Any Setting (page 56) Gives away this secret weapon of mine. A product that you can use on your arms and legs to smooth and even your tone from head to toe… BUT make sure after applying with your hands over the arms and legs evenly that you dab lightly with a clean dry towel and set with a translucent powder on a large powder brush lightly over the area’s where used…

Over the years I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of this product from the humidity in Mexico to the very warm temperatures of India… I’ve always found it flawless without fading, streaking or smudging…

You can find this product at Sephora and several department stores….
