The cosmic brush of star formation composed this alluring mix of dust and dark nebulae. Cataloged as Sh2-239 and LDN 1551, the region lies near the southern end of the Taurus molecular cloud complex some 450 light-years distant. Stretching for nearly 3 light-years, the canvas abounds with signs of embedded young stellar objects driving dynamic outflows into the surrounding medium. Included near the center of the frame, a compact, tell-tale red jet of shocked hydrogen gas is near the position of infrared source IRS5, known to be a system of protostars surrounded by dust disks. Just below it are the broader, brighter wings of HH 102, one of the region’s many Herbig-Haro objects, nebulosities associated with newly born stars. Estimates indicate that the star forming LDN 1551 region contains a total amount of material equivalent to about 50 times the mass of the Sun.

Shu Uemura Blanc:Chroma Brightening UV Cushion Foundation SPF50+ PA+++

The highest coverage cushion foundation I’ve ever tried uses a whole slew of pigments and mineral blends to brighten, blur, correct, and treat the skin. The coverage is so amazing that I had to double-check if I accidentally turned on some filter in my camera when I took the After picture.

As with any product there are pros and cons though. If you want to check out how it works, what I like and dislike about the product, pricing info, and whether it would suit your skin, hop over to the link below.
