For the "grown-up bare face" Tinted Moisturizer smoothed out skin perfections, the HD Micro Finish Powder with micronized pigments gave a natural glow without being too matte...for blush -a peachy pink #665G and #TC2, with natural eyes-using Eyeshadow (Nappa), and lining with eyeliner pencil (#904) ----with a dewy rosy-brown gloss on the lips via the Lip Shine Circle.

Palettes are big sellers...even the non-pro would appreciate the color range available...make-up tools also big sellers.
