Studies have also shown that ellagic acid may also repair skin damaged by the sun. Vitamin C helps heal wounds, and studies also show vitamin C may even lessen the appearance of wrinkles. Studies of cyanidin-3-glucoside, a compound found in blackberries showed it prevents skin cancer by inhibiting tumors from growing and spreading.

Do you know Janell Geason?

Well you should! She is an amazing AVEDA makeup artist. I took her Editorial makeup class in Orlando, Florida a few years ago and I was very impressed not only by her talent but also by her calm demeanor.
Janell is the reason I was able to work NYC fashion week for the Spring 2010 Sara Shepard collection…

Check out images from the show here… http://www.sarashepherd.com/Collections.html

Janell’s work is inspiring, motivating, and brilliant!

Here are a few things I learned from this talented artist…

Use eyeliner as shadow: Saturate the liner close to your lash line, as you move up the lid lighten your application. Using a smudger brush blur your liner and create your desired shape. *This is a great base for any shadow.

SEE the shape of your makeup: This doesn’t mean draw shapes on your face! However, you do want to see strong color with blurred edges to accent features or to simply balance them…

Notice how gentle her application is…
