Get Organized with the Make-Up-Matte


I [heart] my Becca Fine Loose Finishing Powder. I [middle finger] the mess it makes. No matter how skillfully I try to tap the brush onto the counter to distribute the powder evenly, I seem to get more on the vanity than on my face.

As cleaning up is never something I like doing, I forgo the matte makeup and just walk around all uneven skin toned and shiny. Yes, I'??m just that lazy. Apparently my "vanity" being a mess takes on two different meanings when it comes to face powder.

Until now. Now I proudly pull out my powder and brushes for just about any occasion (dare I say that I dusted my nose for grocery shopping the other afternoon?). That'??s because the Make-Up-Matte makes makeup a tidy job.

Make-Up-Matte'?¦Get it? Matte'?¦as in powder'?¦clever ladies'?¦is a great workspace solution that means you can keep all your makeup madness together in one rolled up spot. From two-sided floral to leopard prints, even funky geometrics, this terry-cloth machine washable workspace keeps your vanity clean and organized. It's even been touted in Life & Style and Modern Salon magazines.

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe

We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family more

It comes rolled up with an elastic band (similar to our daughter'??s naptime mat from her preschool days). Just unroll and ouila! You have all your brushes snuggled into four of their own little pockets, with another pocket for your larger loose powders and blushes. Lay the mat out onto the countertop and do all your makeup magic over it, letting the dust fall where it may. Done with the beautyfest? Roll them back up and brushes/powder begone!

I keep all my makeup in our vanity in the Make-Up-Matte and drag it out whenever the need arises. It'??s also perfect for traveling since it rolls up and squishes into your bag quite easily.

Thank you for making my play time with Becca less of a mess. Now if only my daughter's play time with little Rebecca from down the street could be so tidy.
