www.crystalpowder.com); allowing you to mix and apply makeup as you work your magic on your client. It keeps things sanitary as opposed to applying makeup to the back of your hand, and you can use it your palm if that's more comfortable. The palette itself, is a white nonporous board and it's reusable and easy to clean. And the straps are made of durable elastic band and is easy to adjust.
You can also inquire if you need extra long straps or a special size, but it definitely fits most sizes! I like that you can efficiently and quickly work on clients since you can put on swatches of concealer, foundation, lipstick, etc all on the palette and have everything within reach.
You can purchase this palette for $14.95 at the Cinema Secrets store in North Hollywood, or at www.crystalpowder.com

This Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Set was designed by the gorgeous and talented MakeupbyRenRen for Sedona Lace; and I had the wonderful opportunity to try it out!
First of all, let me say that I absolutely admire Ren and Sedona Lace for putting in a lot of thought and quality into this brush collection, and for picking out really good basic and handy brushes, because you definitely get your money's worth, you will not be disappointed! The brush belt is super soft, feels like real leather, and not the cheap plastic kind (I have one and I can feel a major difference!), and fits tons of brushes, not just only the ones in the kit. Also has a cute tiny pocket where you can probably fit a few business cards. The brushes themselves are also of high quality- they are super soft, sturdy, and not scratchy at all. You can get BOTH the brush belt and brushes for $79.95 or get them separately, the brushes only for $69.95 and the brush belt for $19.95, definitely a good bargain though if you get the entire set.
And right now you get free shipping off of $50 or more by using code 50FREE.
My favorite brushes in this collection are the Jumbo Fan Brush, because it's great for removing fallout eyeshadow or to sweep on a little powder, and the pointed crease brush which makes eyeshadow application easy, even for beginners, especially in the outer-v. I specifically love how this is a unique collection that caters to makeup artists or beginners because it has everything you need. I have not seen too many brush kits that offer a brush belt with a variety of quality brushes.
