In my regular day job, makeup artist, I airbrush clients all the time, especially all my weddings.
Clients are always asking me about getting an airbrush system to use on themselves at home, but most professional airbrush systems are too expensive, or are a little bit overkill for someone to have for personal use in their home.
Temptu makes a personalized airbrush system that utilizes pods of foundation. The pod system cancels out the hassles of having to clean an airbrush gun immediately after use, making airbrushing yourself (or anyone else) a much more user-friendly experience.
These systems are really cool! Check out the video below:
If you are reading this post today, November 21st, Temptu is having a pre- Black Friday flash sale.
If you have been following this blog for more than 5 minutes then you already know that I love Tatcha skin care products.
Tatcha uses ancient Japanese beauty secrets and time tested ingredients found in Japan’s oldest beauty book to create one of the most spectacular skin care lines in the world. Tatcha products are incredibly high performance – you see immediate results in your skin. They also are exquisitely luxurious, and make glorious gifts both for others and for yourself.
I like to buy their gift sets as gits for others and also for myself. Their packaging is beautiful, and the story of each product comes on a vellum scroll, telling you the history behind the ingredients and what makes this product so special. I have bought myself Tatcha Gift Sets for years, they are just so incredibly lovely.
There are plenty of gift sets to choose from, and although I am not allowed to tell the specifics of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions until they launch, I would suggest checking everything out now and then hitting the buy now button on Monday…
Here is the Tatcha Gift Set page. One of the selections I want to highlight is the new Obon Gift Sets. You choose from normal to oily skin, normal to dry skin, dry skin and sensitive skin types, and your four full sized product set comes with a custom tray coated in 22.5 carat gold leaf.
At a lower price point the award winning Tatcha Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm, infused with 23 carat gold flakes is paired with a mirror coated in 23 carat gold leaf and a keepsake box that makes a gorgeous gift.

Tatcha Travel Sizes
Tatcha Travel Sized products make fabulous stocking stuffers. (They also give you a chance to try out new products.)I have traveled back and forth across the world with Tatcha travel sized products for years. I never get on a plane without Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist in my carry on bag!
Not sure where to start? These are the travel sized Tatcha products that I take on all my overseas trips:
One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
Tatcha One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is a super gentle cleanser that dissolves makeup, even waterproof mascara and eyeliner, and the deepest, darkest lip stain you may want to wear. The camellia oil leaves your skin residue free and super soft.
Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder uses rice enzymes to exfoliate and polish your skin. Instead of a rough scrub the enzymes in this product dissolve away dead skin cells and debris on the surface of the skin. At only $15 it is super affordable!
Tatcha The Essence is a multi purpose product that softens the skin after cleansing, enhancing the absorption of the rest of your skin care, while at the same time increasing cell turnover, plumping and moisturizing. It instantly doubles your skin’s moisture content and softens fine lines and wrinkles. This is a product that everyone can benefit from using.
Tatcha Deep Hydration Firming Serum
For years I have been calling the Tatcha Deep Hydration Firming Serum the holy grail of serums. I have never seen or used anything quite like it. It is super hydrating, does deep skin repair work and contains 23 carat gold to give the skin a lit from within (but not sparkly) look. This is my favorite serum ever.
I once had a student with the most violent eczema on her face and hands. She bought this serum, started using it on a Friday and came to class on Monday with clear skin! Even the cracking and bleeding on her hands was healed. Tatcha doesn’t classify this as an eczema or dermatitis healing product, but I tell everyone about it!
Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil
I have traveled with Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil for several years. This is a dry finish oil, so your skin doesn’t feel slimy. When you travel your skin loses so much moisture both from flying and unless you are going somewhere humid it also loses moisture from the dry or just different air and the change in water. This luxurious oil both nourishes and seals in moisture, and has 23 carat gold flakes that make your skin look lit from within.
Tatcha The Silk Cream
I have tried all of the Tatcha moisturizers and have loved each one. Your choice of moisturizer has to be based on your skin type and it’s needs. At the moment I am using this one, The Silk Cream. What I am loving about it is that it is a weightless gel-cream, so your skin doesn’t feel weighed down, and it contains silk protein which makes your skin look gorgeous. (It does all kinds of scientific stuff, but really all I care about is how my skin looks and feels)
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist
I absolutely love this product! I spritz Tatcha Luminous Dewy Mist on my skin during long flights to stop it drying out. I also like to spritz it on after rinsing my face in the mornings, and any time I want to refresh my makeup or just make my skin feel nice. I have friends who work in offices in front of computer screens all day, who swear by spritzing a little of this mist during the day to combat the drying effect of whatever it is that eminates from the screen. It is just a lovely, lovely product.
Don’t forget Tatcha on Cyber Monday. Happy shopping!
It’s that time of year again! How did it get here so fast??
It’s time to think about gift giving. Christmas/Hannukah/End of year – whatever it is you celebrate, whether you are buying for yourself or for a gift for someone else I want to start the gift ideas and deals with one of my favorite brands, Stila.
I have been talking about Stila products on the blog all year long.
The Magnificent Metals Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow gave me life this summer! I used them in my Luca Magazine Summer Beauty Editorial, wore them all over Italy, have been wearing them this fall and will keep wearing them through winter. they are just beyond fabulous!
I also use Stila’s Aqua Glow perfecting Bronzer both in my pro kit and on myself. I think its the best gel bronzer around, and I’m a pretty tough critic.
The Stila Holiday 2017 collection is fabulous. They have stocking stuffers, small gift sets and large gift sets. Here is their Black Friday deal, available to you starting Thanksgiving day. The link below will take you into the Stila website.
