Yesterday I got some much needed “me” time and took a trip to my favourite mall, The Mall at Short Hills. While walking through Saks Fifth Avenue I was stopped by two super nice girls at the NARS counter who offered to do my makeup. Why not? It’s always fun to get pampered a little and look great when you’re done right?
Not only did they do my makeup, they taught me how to do exactly what they were doing! It’s great to leave looking fabulous but it’s even better to be able to duplicate the look at home. Doreen would do one side and then give me the brushes, showing me which sizes to use, and how to use them effectively for each step and I would do the other side. She emphasized the importance of highlighting and bronzing in the proper areas to make you glow and look alive. Perhaps the most important thing I finally learned was how to shape my eyebrows. Eyebrows have always been the most difficult part of my makeup routine. Doreen showed me how to set the points for each end and that perfect little arch in the centre so that I would appear bright-eyed and bushy tailed! They had just come out with a new eyeshadow pallet that gave you five colours to try for a reasonable price. A no brainer. When you first look at this blush in it’s cute little container you think “Holy Cow. That’s bright!”, but applied properly it’s actually amazing! I even got some fun little goodies with my purchase. Thanks NARS and Saks! So much fun!
