3 Things I learned with Chanel
I attended a beauty event last Tuesday evening hosted by The Blog Guild and Town Center Crossing Macy's in Leawood. The Chanel beauty counter was our featured beauty product for this evenings event and we were treated to gorgeous color palettes, fabulous fragrances, and a skin care that will make you feel like a million bucks! Town Center Macy's in Leawood is the only Macy's in Kansas that has a Chanel counter. That makes it very handy for when you need a refill of a product, or to play with the new colors. With out all the hassle of the mall, the Town Center Crossing Macy's is a perfect spot to shop.
Our theme for the evening was Eyes speak volumes, and we were going for dramatic eyes. It's funny how you can wear makeup for so many years and yet there is always something new to learn. I love when a makeup line evolves with the trends. Rance, our consultant for the class was wonderful. He took the time to assist each person with the right product for her skin type, showed us all how to do a perfect tight line, and even had some of us stepping out of our comfort zones (me) in colors we generally would select. (It wasn't a pink lipstick)
So what 3 things did I learn?
- When you apply a tight line to your upper lid keep it on the lashes in a dotting pattern, not drawing a line motion. It applies so smooth and glides right on.
- To select your correct shade of blush, make a tight fist, then release it and squeeze your ring finger (any finger will do) at the tip. The color your finger tip shade is will be your natural blush of your cheeks
- Apply your eye cream to the orbital bone of your eye. Not actually directly under the eye area. Believe it or not, you can actually over hydrate the delicate skin under your eyes and you will create white bumps.
I was the model for the evening so the only pics I have of my makeup are from my snapchat!!
My new favorite products I added to my makeup bag are the Le Volume mascara, Lash Primer, and I love the CC cream.
