MILESTONE: 10 YEARS OF BEAUTY TALK

What inspired you to start Beauty Talk Radio ten years ago?

What has been one of your most memorable moments on the show?

Janice Tunnell: Interviewing Mikki Taylor, formerly of Essence Magazine as well as interviewing Ve Neill, another Film Artist that we’ve admired and respected for years.

What makes a program like Beauty Talk so special and resonate with your listeners and guests?

NEW PRODUCT: GO SEAMLESS WITH VISEART

We are loving the latest must have kit essential from Viseart, the Seamless Eye Primer and Seamless Setting Powder. Both products were designed to ensure makeup longevity with comfort. First up the Seamless Eye Primer’s unique formula was not only designed to ensure eye shadow’s true color to shine through, but also prevent it from creasing. Both pigment-free and iron oxide-free, this primer will show eye makeup’s true color each time without any color changes. The lightweight liquidy primer goes on smooth and dries clear, creating a barrier on the eyelid, while evening out the skin’s texture for a smooth flawless eye shadow application every time. It’s perfect for all skin tones and sensitive eyes, as it contains no parabens, gluten, silicone or mineral oils.

This eye primer pairs really well with the new Seamless Setting Powder. This ultra-fine, colorless setting powder was created with a natural cellulose base, designed to not only help absorb excess oil, but also blur fine lines for a soft natural matte finish. The weightless formula is ideal for all skin tones and types and contains no parabens, gluten silicone or mineral oils. Additionally this HD powder will not create flashback which makes it a perfect addition for your pro kit.  Pro Tip: Use a synthetic hair brush like the Esum T43 brush to pat on the  Seamless Eye Primer along the lash line and upper eye area. Then immediately press on the Seamless Setting Powder, before apply the eye shadow color of your choice for a vibrant smudge proof finish.

Both the Seamless Eye Primer, $24 and Seamless Setting Powder, $35, are available exclusively online at musebeauty.pro #GoSeamless
