Fierce Fall Beauty

Saturday, I had the privilege to attend the Nordstrom Cosmetics Trend Show with Ashleigh. So fun, even if we had to be in line by 7am, it was well worth it. I learned so much and it was a lively event...filled with giveaways, raffles, discounts, a lot of whooping & hollering and red carpet worthy looks. The tickets were $15 which could be applied to any purchase in their cosmetic and beauty department. You don't have to twist my arm.... learnings...well, Fall beauty is all about 3 things:
  1. luminous skin
  2. metallics
  3. bold, red lips
Here are some of my favorite pics from the event taken by Ashleigh

What did we walk away with? Well, we had different wish lists. Ashleigh was looking for fab skincare with retinol ingredients that would make her already flawless face even more "luminous." Me? I wanted bold, dark raspberry lips for Fall but I had very specific parameters. I wanted to splurge on a fab lipstick so the lipstick had to:

1. be from Dior, Chanel or YSL
2. be matte
3. not be red
4. not be sheer
5. not slide off my lips or bleed.

Thanks to Heath, the amazing talent behind the Chanel counter, I settled on Coco Rouge "rivoli" and it was just right. Goldilocks' famous last words... Oh, and of course I needed a blush to match so I walked away with the Chanel tweed blush.

All in all - a success! I highly recommend attending their next show. It's a photographer's dream and major blogger eye candy!
