A few weeks ago, I was expected to attend a Shoe Dazzle event at The London in 2 hours but had been running all over town, makeup-free with post-spin class hair.
Well, this would not do.
But what’s a girl to do with less than 2 hours to appear showered, polished and pretty amongst the LA tastemaker elite?
Well, I headed straight to Nordstrom at The Grove to get primped and prettied by the hair experts at Blowpro and my new fave, Charlotte Tilbury.
This might be the first time you’ve heard about Charlotte Tilbury, but I can assure you it won’t be the last. Especially not on this site. My plan is to show you each one of Charlotte’s featured looks, so you will go get this magic, er – I mean, makeup for yourself. Think Victoria’s Secret model meets screen siren, because Charlotte’s responsible for much of their makeup!
On this particular day, I opted for what has become my evening staple makeup look this season – The Dolce Vita. La Quanna Chong, education & training director at Charlotte Tilbury, applied the Dolce Vita shadow palette ($52) and I was hooked. There’s even the best makeup tutorial I’ve seen in ages, explaining exactly how to do it at home. Best part? You get to dip your fingers into glitter!
Pictured above are the products featured on me, all by Charlotte Tilbury: WonderGlow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash Primer ($52) , Dolce Vita Luxury Palette ($52), The Retoucher ($32), Lip Lustre in Bardot Beige ($22), Cheek To Chic in The Climax ($40), Brow Lift in Brooke ($29) and Full Fat Lashes in Glossy Black ($29).
Charlotte, I have not been this excited about a makeup line since Trish McEvoy in 1995 when I was 17 years old. I’m not exaggerating here, folks. Stay tuned for many a post on all of Charlotte’s products I love.
After I got all dolled up with Charlotte and La Quanna, I headed right down the aisle of Nordstrom Beauty to Blow at Nordstrom by BlowPropro.
Um, have you been to Blowpro? It’s a blowout bar right in Nordstrom! Heaven!! You can get your dress, grab your tights, try on some shoes, get your makeup done, and then get your hair coiffed all in under 2 hours! Perfect for busy ladies like us this holiday season!
Blow at Nordstrom by BlowPro gave me a gorgeous blowout and I walked out feeling fresh, fierce and like a million bucks…
which was just perfect for an event, where I ended up posing on a chess board.
