Under one roof was NARS, Shiseido, Issey Miyake and John Varvatos, all set up at different stations for us to make rounds. I started at the Perfect Rouge table where Ashley, a Shiseido makeup artist, picked out my perfect shade of red lipstick to compliment my skin tone. I’ve been scared of color on my lips because for some reason I just can’t find the perfect shade. Although two of the lipsticks complimented my skin perfectly, I went with the Perfect Rouge in Dragon, which was so appropriate with the cocktail length black dress and pearls I was wearing. I wore the lipstick through a few round of drinks and nibbles and noticed that it was still on my lips around midnight. I am a big fan of Shiseido’s The Makeup Advanced mascara and base so I am excited to add another product from their brand to my makeup collection.
