    The Affordable Antishine Alternative You Might Be Overlooking

    The Affordable Antishine Alternative You Might Be Overlooking

    Episode #062.
    Do you have a favorite antishine or mattifying makeup product that has alas, fallen prey to the makeup fun police I like to call "DISCONTINUED?"
    There's nothing worse than going to pick up your go-to product, that you've trusted and relied on, year after year only to discover it has been discontinued. And for some reason, that seems to happen with an uncanny regularity with antishines and mattifying creams.

    So inside this episode, I lament on some of my favorite anti-shines from times gone by, and I look at a new top pick that I rely on nowadays, AND it's a low-cost, high-capacity alternative.

Love the pod!

I listen to all my podcasts in the morning when I get ready and I love listening to this one! It’s truly such a bite size show but it leaves me wanting more. It gives me enough info and for things I’m interested in and then I’ll do more research later online or check out recommended products. Also, little random but I also enjoy the speed in which she speaks! I can really digest what she’s saying unlike other podcasts that talk a mile a minute and I have to rewind. Thank you Kerrin for all your knowledge and insight on makeup and the industry!

A must listen!

Loving this show so much!! It’s so nice to learn tips and tricks from a pro, so often we come across other artists that aren’t willing to share their secrets!! I’ve learned so much about set etiquette and products, Kerrin has such a wealth of knowledge!! Definitely give this podcast a listen :)
