HOLY MOLY April has been insanely busy. I cannot believe how busy I’ve been, but I’m back and I promise not to neglect the blog for this long ever again! I realized I’ve been taking tons of product posts and makeup selfies over the past couple weeks, and I just need to put pen to paper and get these reviews up here!
So with that said, it was my birthday last week! And boy was I spoiled!! The festivities started on April 8th, I had a birthday pre-drink at my condo with my friends and then out to the bar! I went to Sephora that afternoon to get my makeup done, and it was a really fun experience!
Lisa from Sephora was so much fun to hang out with for the 45 minute makeover session. She was really into skin prep (as you can see from the picture above!) and it was fun to try out some new products! She used a bunch of Caudalie products, which I’ve never used before, such as the Instant Foaming Cleanser, Grape Water, Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum, and the Beauty Elixir to name a few! This all helped achieve the glow-iest skin I could ever imagine!
I asked Lisa for super glowy skin, a peachy-gold smokey eye, and to be bronzed and contoured. I also really wanted to try the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, and off she went to collect everything! It was really fun to be able to chat with a makeup artist about her job, try new products, and get your makeup done at one of my favourite stores. But I will say that I don’t think the allotted 45 minutes is enough, both Lisa and I felt rushed at the end of the appointment. I think she did an amazing job creating my glowy complexion, and I really liked the eyeshadow, but I would have loved to been more bronzed/contoured. All in all, it was a lot of fun. It was free with a $50 product purchase for VIB members, and totally worth it if you’re just looking for fun!
I did go home and fix up my makeup a tad, and was very happy with the end result. I cannot live without a winged liner, and I really needed to add a pair of lashes and bronzer! The photo on the left is how I left Sephora, and the middle is once I had added lashes and bronzer!
My friends all came over and we had an amazing time! They made me a snapchat filter for my condo, and got me this amazing birthday cake!!! It was a really wonderful birthday!
