I love Dustin. I’m so glad you featured him a while back, I’ve been a loyal subscriber ever since. He’s hysterical and SO informative. He should really have a lot more attention than he does 🙂

woohoo! thanks so much christine! this video drove me to tears at one point! hahaha! it was a hard one to put together – but i’ve gotten nearly 200 more subscribers since you plastered it up here 🙂 thank you! dusty

Dusty really demystified all the MAC foundations. By the way, I ran out and bought baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes after watching the video about how to dry brushes. Great idea!

I love the coverage, concentration and buildability of studio sculpt (watched the in depth). I’ve found it goes on best over a good balancing foundation such as (sister company) EL Daywear and no primer. It’s important to dab on small areas using TINY amounts (think no more than pea size for whole face–pref less) and blend blend blend with fingers (the warmth helps it blend in). It is a SLOW application but the results are flawless, look incredibly natural, gorgeous finish, lots of staying power. Don’t set with powder, try a facial setting spray/toner with a bit of alcohol like Caudalie elixir or Pangea toner.

Lots of people break out because they don’t know its waterproof. You have to use MU remover to get it all off or you’ll still be wearing the residue 2 days later. The stuff can be a PITA but it gives you the skin you always wanted.
