At the end of last week, my mom and I set off for a little girl’s day to Nordstrom. We had scheduled makeovers at the M.A.C Cosmetics counter for Nordstrom’s Summer Beauty Event. While waiting on each other to get our makeup done, we had our hair styled by Aveda. What I loved about Aveda, is that they had a special camera to take pictures of your scalp. In addition to that, our stylist also completed some other tests for elasticity and moisture. After assessing our hair, he complied some products that would be best for what type of hair issues we were going through. While, I loved my makeover, some products really stood out to me and I made a purchase (or two….). Below, I have listed my favorite products from the beauty event!
1. Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation: I was super impressed with this foundation. It’s claim to be waterproof is absolutely perfect for summer. I recently wore this on a 5K walk, and I must say, it did stay on all day (even while getting rained on). I am shade NC 35 which is more of a cooler tone. This foundation is buildable and provides medium to full coverage.
2.Extra Dimension Skin Finish (Highlight): Oh, my, goodness. I loved this highlighter. I purchased the shade Oh, Darling which is more of a gold shimmer. It is a good match for cooler tones and does not give off any “orangey” look.
3.Satin Lipstick in Shade Mocha: This lipstick shade is a great neutral for a summer day!
4.Pro Longwear Lip Pencil: I love how this lip liner pairs so well with the Mocha lipstick. I also have several other nude shades that I know it will pair nicely with.
5.Prep and Prime Lip: I put this on before applying lipstick to moisturize my lips. It smells so good and makes my lipstick go on much smoother.
6.Matte Lipstick in Shade Breathing Fire: Who doesn’t love a good deal? I got this lipstick free for purchasing two lip products. It is such a fun hot pink that will be great for a summer date night!
I have yet to try these products out, but I will make sure to keep you updated with how I like them. I did however, want to share with you what I purchased and the steps to follow!
3.Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment: Once a week, use this hair mask instead of normal conditioner.
4. Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair: Add this to ends before blow drying.
5. Pure Abundance Style Prep: Spray on roots for volume.
Overall, I would say that this beauty event was a success! Hope you all have a terrific day!
