As winter slowly fades away and spring begins to blossom, we tend to embrace the new season with open arms. Spring is a particularly anticipated season, dare I say even more so than summer, because it is the first time we are able to shed those extra layers of clothing and see the Earth come back to life.
With the arrival of spring officially here, it is also time to welcome new trends. Each year, Nordstrom hosts a Beauty Trend Show to feature all of the season’s latest and greatest cosmetic and beauty must-haves. Women who live and breath an obsession with the world of beauty drag their butts out of bed way too early on this very Saturday and wait to hear what is in store for them this season.
This was my first year attending the Trend Show, and though I was forewarned of the chaos this event brought on, I was not nearly prepared for what the true meaning of this day entailed. After listening to representatives from cosmetic lines give the 411 on everything from the newest breakthrough foundation to BB cream’s little sister, CC cream, I had the awesome experience of getting my makeup done by Smashbox. Luckily for me, this was the same day I was celebrating my 23rd birthday so I had a special look in mind. Stay tuned for my birthday OOTD featuring this makeup look!
My makeup was done by makeup artist Meghan McDonough, who was an absolute treat to work with! She transitioned my vision into the look I was going for that evening seamlessly. We also threw in a few laughs here and there :)
Red lips, naturally ;)
P.S. This red lipstick does not budge. I’m wearing the shade Infrared Matte.
After (oh hayyy)
Thank you, Meghan!!
