#TeamFritz fans may have had a tough night last night at the finale of Scandal, but it was all sunshine at the Carlton hotel in NYC. Lara from Pretty Connected and I hosted a fun soiree in honor of the big finale and hosted a twitter party where we gave away some of the products used on set (congratulations to our winners @jenniferzeno, @OhLaLaChrissy, and @NJBeachGrl!). We sipped our Tiziano wine all Olivia Pope Style, our friends at Davios did some delicious catering and we tweeted up the products from the set.
So ready for the list!?! We chatted with Scandal makeup artist Denise Hooper prior to the show (follow her @ScandalMakeup), who told us all about how they get crazy amounts of products sent to the set (I’m sure you can imagine…). So you know whatever they pick is boss!!! Be sure to follow her twitter handle since they only tweet about the products they are loving and have tried (if it doesn’t make the cut, it doesn’t make twitter). And the products they use each season varies since they keep trying new items. Current faves include, NARS Penny Lane blush, Jouer Cosmetics and Dr. Lancer RX — *mental note for next tweet up* As for now, here’s what has graced Olivia Popes flawless skin and other cast members!
