Does a high-quality makeup brush make a difference?

For years, I assumed that "a brush was a brush".  They were all made from similar materials and it was absurd to pay lots of money for something to apply my makeup.  Then I started using Bare Escentuals foundation and found out quickly that a good brush was essential for applying that and thankfully their starter kits usually come with a couple of free brushes.  But I still wasn't convinced that I needed to spend lots of money on fancy brushes to apply eye shadow, liner, etc.  Then I was introduced by my dear friend to two brush companies that sell professional grade brushes on-line at fabulous prices.
I ordered several brushes from both companies and noticed an immediate difference in how my makeup went on and how the brushes have held up over time.  What a difference a good brush can make! 

So if you find yourself in need of some new brushes and/or you've always wanted to try some nice brushes but didn't want to spend the money, check out the brus…

Favorite Snack Under 100 Calories

Whether you are counting calories or not, snack time can quickly become boring or dangerous!  There are some days when fresh carrot chips sound fine and others when I need something more tasty and filling.  So, when I put together this scrumptious snack and realized it was only 95 calories, I was hooked!

All you need are Orowheat Double Fiber English Muffins and Laughing Cow Light Cheese wedges.  Lightly toast one half of an english muffin (60 calories) and spread one wedge of cheese (35 calories) and viola!  A nutritious and delicious snack!  The Laughing Cow cheese wedges are great because they are individually wrapped so you don't have to worry about using up the container quickly like you do with cream cheese.  Plus, it comes in a variety of flavors . . . my favorite right now is French Onion.  It's usually found in the deli area and not with the rest of the cheeses.  Happy snacking!
