Last week during Fashion Week I was invited to a blogger meet-and-greet event hosted by Glam Media at the Libary Hotel in Midtown. At the very laid-back, yet somewhat posh event, I had the opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow bloggers while sipping wine and nibbling fancy finger foods. Being that I am an incessant makeup and beauty enthusiast, I was super excited that there was a professional makeup artist on hand from Jane Iredale - The Skin Care Makeup to give us willing participants mini-makeovers.
Even though I had gone to the event with my usual makeup already applied, I was excited to get it redone by a professional. Prior to the makeover, Kevin (the makeup artist) told us all about the benefits of Jane Iredale. I listened, but didn't really think that the products’ “mineral benefits” would be any different from all of the other cosmetic sales pitches you hear all the time.
To my pleasant surprise, all of the seemingly false beauty banter lived up to the hype. Kevin told us that the mineral foundations and concealers included acne-fighting agents while creating an anti-pancake barely-there feel and he was right.
I had a hideous pimple that appeared to have dissipated after the makeup application. Plus, it felt like I wasn't wearing any makeup although I had on foundation, concealer, eye shadow, blush and lip gloss (I could feel the gloss of course)! I must say, after looking in the mirror all I could think was, "Why couldn't I have known him 3 years ago so I could've hired him for my wedding!" I looked amazing and have never felt prettier.
If you have never used or heard of Jane Iredale's products, definitely check them out at www.janeiredaledirect.com. Trust me, they have a wide range of products capable of complementing every BG's skin tone!
