Hello fashionistas! I was in Chicago (I
KNOW..hahaha, nothing new about that) early last week. While browsing the makeup
counters at Nordstroms on Michigan Avenue in search of a new foundation, I learned some valuable information I could not wait to share with all of you. I had read wonderful reviews of the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. My plan was to be
color matched and sent home with a sample to try out for a few days.
Unfortunately there was no specialist at the Armani counter. The next
day I was at the Oak Brook Nordstroms and again the same experience. It is Nordstroms, so OF COURSE there are many helpful sales associates but I
wanted someone with specific knowledge of the Armani product line.
I eventually spoke with a manager about my frustrations and
she shared with me........amazing news......the Nordstrom makeup
department has beauty specialists for who do not work with a specific
brand. The woman who helped me at the Oak Brook store was fabulous. We
spoke for a bit about my skin (dry and sensitive, sporadic redness) as well as my preferred price range. She then pulled products from
Laura Mercier, Chanel and Nars.
I don't know about you but its been my experience if I go to
the Bobbi Brown counter, they always recommend only Bobbi Brown products, same with Nars, Clarins etc... I have always wondered how do I know what really is
the best products/colors for me?
You can meet with a Nordstroms beauty specialist at no charge and receive honest advice on makeup and skincare. I was fortunate enough to be there on a weekday morning when she had some free time but an appointment is suggested.
To find out what she recommended and what I purchased...you will have to read upcoming posts for the full scoop.
Some of my own personal thoughts on Oscar Fashions 2014:
LOVED Sandra Bullocks curls
This is how you attend an awards show in maternity wear, thank you Olivia Wilde
How does Kate Hudson look like this after having 2 children?
How beautiful is her COMPLETE look?
Did you watch the Red Carpet? What were your hits and misses? I always laugh at the fact that as I watch various award shows, I am in a small town in Indiana, with no makeup on and most likely wearing old yoga pants judging attendees fashion. who are in designer clothing, at a international event and ...I am judging them??? ..oh well isn't that what some of us do best??????? HAHAHAHAHA
