Hi All and Welcome to My First Friday Favorites Post

Photo from

It has been over a month since I posted and, even though I wanted to be here writing for our mutual pleasure, life sometimes gets in the way.  I won't bore you with details, but I may dive into the why's and whatnot's in future posts.

So, I've been thinking about doing a series in my moments of wishful blogging, and I what I came up with is Friday Favorites.  What are Friday Favorites, you ask?  Just a post about something I love or find useful that will be on Fridays.

Today I decided to spotlight something that a fellow blogger and makeup artist extraordinaire turned me on to when I asked her for a recommendation for a foundation primer.  Kathy Aragon is her name and her blog is  After I told her about my concerns, she kindly recommended Skinprep FX Primer by Cover FX .  She even has a review on her blog which you can read here

So I ordered it in the smallest size they have at Nordstrom, and I have been using it every day since. My skin seems softer, more hydrated and smooth after I apply it. My makeup goes on nicely and stays put all day. I'm so impressed, that I can't foresee ever going back to Smashbox Primer which used to be my favorite. I highly recommend it!

That is it in a nutshell. Oh, and if you want to know more about Kathy and her work, you can also visit her work website at

Have a great weekend!


  1. Good to know that primer is working so well for you! She used it on me that day she did my make-up and my skin was so soft and smooth, even the day after!

  2. I have never used this primer but I will definitely have to give it a try! Hope you have a great day. I am hosting a giveaway at my blog this week if you have time to check it out:
