The Makeup Date Beauty Event Recap

On Saturday, I played beauty emcee/host at Bloomingdale’s first-ever, The Makeup Date Beauty Event; a beauty trend show and makeover madness soiree. Over 200 RSVPd so I was just a tad bit nervous when I found out I’d be speaking in front of so many women!

Skincare and makeup experts (think Estee Lauder, La Mer, Laura Mercier, NARS, Clinique, and a bevy of other brands) spoke on stage about the latest trends and must-have products with three models showcasing an office, day to night and weekend look. I had a blast chatting it up with beauty junkies and newbies alike following the show.

Check out some of my snapshots from the event below!

The Makeup Date Politics of Pretty

In case you’re wondering what I’m wearing… Jumpsuit: South Moon Under, Blazer: Zara (similar) and Belt: South Moon Under

Gorgeous lipsticks at the Laura Mercier counter. Laura Mercier rep, Nina, did my makeup before I stepped on stage. I had a gorgeous glow, turquoise eye and coral lip thanks to her sweet makeup artist skills.

Guests were treated to one-on-one makeup consultations following the beauty trend show. What’s more fun than spending your Saturday getting pampered at the Chanel counter?

The Jo Malone shop inside Bloomingdale’s Chevy Chase is so cute.
