My friend and I stayed at the Conrad Hilton in Chicago, which just so happens to be connected to the Nordstrom building on Michigan Avenue. We loved it because you didn't even have to go outside, you just walked down a hallway and took the elevator down.
So, on Saturday night we had some time to kill and I suggested that Emily and I go and get our makeup done. I suggested Nars, because my friend Gina has gotten me totally hooked on the line. We had a great artist, her name is Adrienne if you live in Illinois, I would highly suggest her. She took quite a while (an hour for each of us) but we were so happy with the result. I don't have any pics to share, because my friend Jayme was the one with the camera Saturday night. But, if she does ever upload them, I will add them to this post.
Corfu. Gina had let me borrow this color from her and I am so glad that I now have one of my own. It is the prettiest shimmering taupe. I love it worn alone, or with shadow over the top to intensify the look. For a woman on the go, this product is magic. You can wear this and nothing else and walk out the door looking polished.
Since poppy red is such a hot color for Spring, I felt like I needed this in a lip color. I adore how Nars does a Matte Lipstick, and the artist suggested The Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life for my friend Emily. I immediately gushed over the color. They call it a true shimmering red, but I thought it came off pretty orange-red on me.
And then, the artist suggested to put Greek Holiday over the top for a more coral sort of "wet" look. I love the combination. It will be great bronzed skin and sundresses this summer. I also like it just alone for a very natural glossy look.
Do you love Nars too? What are your favorite colors?
