so loving this skincare line...
In addition to her time spent working as a make-up artist for film, television, and print in the last ten years, the mastermind behind the Skin Preparations line, Annabelle MacNeal has an impressive work history with more major cosmetic lines than I can name. To list a few: M.A.C., Stila, Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, Shiseido, Chanel, Estee Lauder, and Lancome. Throughout her career she searched for products with the perfect blend of nature and science. Unable to find an ideal mix for her taste, MacNeal concocted her own - and it's wonderful. Right now, Bright Eyes is my favorite.
Think: top anti-aging technology mixed with traditional and ancient ingredients. All the products are paraben free, sulfate free, and contain no artificial dyes, fragrance, mineral oil or animal by-products. Ingredient lists and explanations are available for each product on the website.
The best part: the prices. Many of you know that I am also a big fan of the Biodynamic Beauty line by Jurlique and if you have looked into the line you also know that it can be a bit pricey and difficult to purchase locally. So Skin Preparations is my "locaskincare," recession-friendly recommendation.
