How to Properly Apply Mascara
Not everyone is a pro in this and everyone had to start at some point so how do you do it...
Ace your mascara application with a 3-step process:
Step 1: Wiggle the wand left to right at the base of lashes. It's the mascara placed near the roots -- not the tips -- that gives the illusion of length
Step 2: Pull the wand up and through lashes, wiggling as you go. The wiggling part is key because it separates lashes.
Step 3: In this final step (which I always skip), close the eye and place the mascara wand on top of lashes at the base and pull through to remove any clumps.
Pick the Best Mascara for You
When picking a mascara, you should consider the formula you want (lengthening, thickening, waterproof or non-clumping).

Creating a natural, rosy radiance
When applying blush, you want the color to look soft and natural, as if it comes from within. Read below for tips on how to put on make-up.
1. Tap or lightly blow on the applicator brush to remove any excess blush before applying to prevent a harsh and uneven application.
2. Apply your blush on the apple of the cheek and carefully blend towards your natural hairline.
3. If you have two shades, apply the darker one on the apple of the cheek first, then use the lighter shade to highlight. Blend well so there is no visible line between colors.
4. Highlight your temples, forehead and chin.
Tip: To know "where to glow" bend over for 30 seconds, then slowly stand up. Where your cheeks are flushed is where you are meant to blush. Apply your blush there and it will be naturally rosy every time.
Tip: Cheek color should be used to enhance your complexion, not to change your natural skin tone. Use sparingly for daytime, then add more or a deeper shade for a more dramatic nighttime effect. For special occasions, dust a lightly frosted powder over your cheekbones for a subtle but alluring glow.
Tip: Make sure to blend your blush into your foundation well or it will tend to look unnatural and add the appearance of 5 years to your looks.

Who We Are
FaceFront Cosmetics was first conceptualized in 2006 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A year later, it was formally launched as a lip care line in 2007, developing its image as a "modern unisex cosmetics brand." Presently, its headquarters are in Boston, Massachusetts, USA and in São Paulo, Brazil. From very humble beginnings to worldwide sales, FaceFront has stayed true to its image: being viewed both as an environmentally responsible brand and more recently, a great find for those seeking vegan-friendly products. As the line continues to grow, it continuously keeps on the cutting edge of fashion, design and urban life with the majority of its clientle stemming from well-known, creative make-up artists and fashion-industry professionals. Today, the brand is known throughout many parts of North America, South America, Europe and Oceania as well as on-line through our e-store.
FaceFront Cosmetics was acquired in 2011 and is a highlight to the family-owned, Weiss-Johnson Company, located in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Our mission is short and simple: create an eco-friendly product that feeds the creative mind, body and soul, while maintaining an open-mind to the beauty of culture, scene and trend. It has been our motto since our founding in 2007 and is applied to every product we manufacture and market. Furthermore, we never make a product that we don't absolutely love. If you don't feel the same way about a product, we want to hear about it and refund/exchange the item.
Where Our Ingredients Come From
The utmost care and concern is taken when we select independent vendors to purchase bulk ingredients to manufacture our unique products. All of our raw materials are from the United States or from South America. We do not purchase ingredients or packaging materials outside of the Americas.
