I am living on the bare makeup essentials right now because I lost my makeup bag a couple of weeks ago. Bare essentials being my Sue Devitt Triple Seaweed powder, a powder brush, Cover Girl quad eyeshadow and Rosebud Salve lip balm. How I manage to still look so glam is baffling to me. I went to the Bachelors and Spinsters Ball last night and needed to look a little bit more glam than my usual self. I had about an hour and a half to get a mini pedicure, hair washed and blow dried and makeup done.
I dropped off my Zipcar
, Mazda Maisey, at the Ballston Metro
so I decided to make a hair appointment at Kenny’s Hair salon and a pedicure appointment at a cute little nail salon on the corner of Randolph and Stuart Streets. The event started at 9 and I had a couple of pre-parties
before hand. So after the hair and nail appointments, I went over to Macy’s
to see if I could purchase some eyeshadow, mascara and lipstick to complete my look. I usually choose Shiseido eyeshadow
and lipstick but there was no one at the Shiseido
counter so I hobbled over to the Estee Lauder
I asked the friendly sales woman at the Estee Lauder
counter if she could do my makeup for me. She kindly obliged and completely made me over. I told her that I wanted to feel like Barbie, so she chose pinks and muaves
for my eye colors. I loved the entire look, from the eye shadows to the mascara and pencils. My favorite item in the collection she used was the Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick in Candy
and the Pure Color Gloss
. The cotton candy pink color looked amazing with my complexion without looking cheap. I loved that the lip color stayed on all night through drinks, food and kisses. At less than $20 each, I left the makeup counter with both products.
