Welcome to the Movement for Better Beauty

I have used countless products in my career as a Professional Makeup Artist.  Many of which perform beautifully, but unfortunately not all are safe.  In the last few years I have become better educated on the amount of harmful ingredients in our beauty products .  Here's an alarming fact for you.  The European Union has banned or partially restricted over 1,400 ingredients from personal care products.  The United States? 30.  I'm not OK with this.  That's why I've chosen to partner with Beautycounter. Not only does Beautycounter create and distribute high performing products; we educate the public about how to avoid harmful ingredients; and are urging the government to pass laws to better regulate the beauty industry.  This is a movement I can back.  The products are safer, cleaner and DO NOT compromise performance.  That was a key factor for me.  I need products, not only that are safe, but also perform well on camera as well as for fashion and print.  I can honestly say, I am so happy with Beautycounter's product performance.  My job is to offer you high performing products that won't compromise your health and safety.  While I am not a hard core purist, and do use other brands in some of my beauty products,  I do believe these are some of the very best the market has to offer.  Any Beautycounter product you use, you can rest assured that it is safe and not harming your body in any way.  You can check out Beautycounter's  extensive product line at www.beautycounter.com

Feel free to contact me via my personal site at www.beautycounter.com/tiffanyschwedland if I can answer any questions you may have in regards to products right for you!  Below are some of my personal favorites!

You deserve Better Beauty!

XOXO, Tiffany

 The f acial oils  and  masks  are my absolute favorite  Beautycounter  skincare products.  I mix the  facial oils  with my  Tint Skin f or a dewy glow.  I love all the  masks  but I use the  #3 mask  the most.  It is perfect for purifying, balancing and absorbing excess oils in the skin.  The activated charcoal in it minimizes the appearance of pores and the salicylic acid helps exfoliate.  It's hands down an absolute favorite!

 This  Cleansing Balm  is so unbelievably moisturizing.  It melts into your skin while removing makeup and other impurities.  It can also double as an intense  moisture mask .  It reminds me of my Grandmother's Ponds Cold Cream but none of the harmful ingredients.  I use to wake up to her cutting out sewing patterns, drinking her thermos of coffee with her Ponds jar right next to her...Though I'm not waking up at 5 am to cut out sewing patterns like she did, I have kept up the  coffee  and  Cleansing Balm  in my morning routine . It's nostalgic and nourishing!

  Dew Skin  and  Tint Skin  are both equally loved.   Tint Skin  will give you fuller coverage.  I mix a little of my  Facial Oil  in it for a dewy glow.   Dew Skin  is a tinted moisturizer with SPF 20.  If I want more coverage I mix my  Dew Skin  and  Tint Skin  so I have the benefit of the SPF as well as the added moisturizer.

 The  Matte Bronzer No. 1  is my  beloved.  It looks great on everyone and gives you just the right amount of color.  It doesn't have shimmer in it so it can double as a powder contour if so desired.  Sometimes when I am in a hurry I use it as eyeshadow as well.

 The  Eyeshadow Duo in Pearl/Champagne  is a staple.  I not only use it to highlight the inner corners of my eyes and under the arch of my brow but also my cheek bones.  Just because it says eyeshadow doesn't mean you have to only use it on your eyes!  I LOVE it!

 The  Color Intense Lipsticks   in Backstage  and  Girl's Night  are must haves for me.  Backstage is a beige pink and Girl's Night is a bold red.  They have a satin finish and are very moisturizing unlike other long wear lipsticks that can leave your lips feeling super dry and uncomfortable.  I like to apply a little of the  sheer lipstick  or  lipgloss  over these to customize the colors.
