I’m always elated when I receive an invite in my email from Allure Magazine for one of their private event. Their current beauty event was for Nexxus Hair Care products being hosted at Salon SCK in Columbus Circle. Tonight event was for Nexxus Celebrity Hair Color Expert Aura Friedman. Aura did a great presentation showcasing the hair products from Nexxus and sharing pictures from her recent work on actress Molly Simms. The great hair stylists from Salon SCK offered new hair trends by appointments to the attendees while the others sipped mini Moet Chandon bottles and eating macaroons.

A Makeup Artist dream to attend a fun yet knowledgeable masterclass taught by the talented & charming Maybelline Celebrity Makeup Artist Gabe Almodovar. Sophia, Allure Magazine Associate Beauty Editor shared with us some of her favorite makeup looks that she saw on the runway at Paris Fashion Week. And Gabe shared with us how to create 3 of those makeup looks using Maybelline products. Before the class started we were treated to a beautiful catered spread of light finger snacks & desserts and a selection of refreshments; white & red wine, and a variety of sodas put together by Allure magazine.

My Glam Evening At Allure Magazine & Jane Iredale Makeup Artists Night Out Beauty Event

Makeup Artist & Beauty Expert Brandy Gomez-Duplessis
I was very excited to receive a special invite from Allure Magazine to attend Makeup Artists Night Out featuring Jane Iredale Beauty Event at Conde Nast building. While enjoying cocktails and refreshments we were shown beauty tips and trends from Allure magazine editors. Jane Iredale makeup artist Randall shared with us tips from the makeup line and how to use some of their must haves items. I actually enjoyed playing with the products in trying on the makeup. My favorite item was Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base Mineral Foundation in: Butternut, Maple, & Terra. At the end we were given a great gift bag from both Allure magazine & Jane Iredale. 
I look forward to trying some of my Jane Iredale goodies on my clients and on set. 

Always a pleasure to meet my loyal readers of my blog like the fab Ellen.
