Stuff I Love: Fairweather Faces Make-Up Brushes w/ Mocha Manual Discount!!

People always ask me to write more about the stuff I love and things I use. But I've always seen myself as an "issues" kind of girl. But then I said, hey, it's 2010 and I'm breaking out of all my boxes! So here goes:

But I need to start with a confession: I am not a make-up person. Eyeliner, mascara and my favorite MAC lip glass is pretty much all you will get out of me most days. But the more I keep driling into my head that "I am my brand" and that I have to always represent the brand, I try to always step out of my house properly representing my Mocha Manual brand. Morning bus stop runs not included.

Enter my homegirl, Andrea Fairweather. I first met Andrea while scouring the country for subjects for my second book, The Mocha Manual to Turning Your Passion into Profit. A mutual friend said she was a perfect fit. And she was. In the book, Andrea talks about her love of nail polish and art and how she was the go-to person in high school if you wanted your boyfriend's name perfectly painted onto your fingernails and how she earned money through college doing hair and make up on campus, but never thought her love could be her life. 

Today she has a hot roster of celebrity clientele (you'll have to read the book for more on her journey) for her make up services and her experience includes working for Disney for High School Musical and the Cheetah Girls to the set of Law & Order to her client Jacque Reid (shout out to Jacque!! Jacque held it down on this season's Let's Talk About Pep).

Andrea's nationwide traveling company, Fairweather Faces, brings make-up, hair, nails and massage by licensed technicians directly to YOU, wherever you are.

And her new line of must-have, travel-size professional make up brushes debuted on the Rachel Ray show–you go girl!!  

So when I have a make-up dilemma–which is pretty much all the time, I go to Andrea. And the one thing she told me is that make-up is all about the brushes. Getting that even application, having the right tool for the right technique makes it so much easier, especially for sisters like me!! 

 When I do actually use make up, fer real fer real, I'm typically traveling to a speaking engagement, book signing or potential client meeting and need to land ready to go!  Or get face ready quickly in an airport bathroom. The four brushes in the set cover everything.

 

The full Pro Set. Travel sized professional quality brushes

There's also a 3-brush mini-set. The color coded system on the 3 mini brushes (love the rhinestone BLING!) and her face charts are so amazing to help you know where to put what, and come free with any brush set purchase. The mini-set with face chart is also a great starter set for teens!

The other thing I love about the travel and mini brushes is that they are definitely clutch size. As a sister who's been trying to go out more and get her groove back lately (email me privately for the juicy details. the blog is being watched;)) I love that I don't have to compromise quality for a brush that fits into even the cutest of my night-on-the-town bags.

This small size also comes in handy on the rest of my weekend when my mommy bag is full of Thomas Trains, Kayla's books and spare clothes.

 

the fabulous face charts

To make me even happier, Andrea is giving a $5 discount on the make up Pro Set to all the Mocha Manual mamas from now until Monday. Just use Discount Code MM310 at checkout. Hurry!!

 Even as moms, we need our fabulousness.  And a little help!
