Ahhhh ! I can’t believe it’s been a while since I’ve written about anything fashion or beauty related on here. So sorry, my lovely readers. School has gotten the best of me and I’ve been super busy with work for my classes and participating in school-related events. However, I did want to take the time to write about this awesome beauty event that I went to a couple weeks ago !
One of the Ulta beauty stores here in Las Vegas hosted a Smashbox Cosmetics Photo event. To sign up, customers were to make an appointment and purchase a $25 gift card to use towards any product at the event. Participation included a free make-over by one of Ulta’s SmashBox Cosmetics experts and an opportunity to take pictures in the photo booth set up with at the event.
I had a lovely make up artist named Lou Lou who was a blast to hang out with. I could tell she was very passionate about make-up and her art. It was awesome that she knew exactly what products to use on me that would compliment my skin tone. We wanted a natural look that was able to enhance my features. Below are the pictures of the products she used on my face, their prices, and the over-all finished look. Check it out!
My favorite product out of all of these is the Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. I actually ended up buying the foundation because it’s just amazing ! It includes a primer formula in the foundation, is long lasting, goes on super smooth, has build able coverage, is oil-free, and doesn’t have that funky smell some foundations have. Before this foundation, I was using MAC Studio Finish. As much as I love the coverage, I don’t think I’ll ever go back to MAC after using Smashbox’s foundation. Yes, it’s a bit pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for ! Check out Ulta.com for more awesome Smashbox products.
I want to thank LouLou for being such an awesome make-up artist, for sharing some laughs with me, and for taking pictures with me in the photo booth. You’re a dollface! Xo
Until next time, lovebugs !
