I recently went to the Nordstrom Spring Beauty Trend Show at South Coast Plaza. It was a great event that started bright and early. I was very excited to see what they would show as far as spring beauty trends for this season.
Here's the details of this event:
The event ticket was $20 - which could be used toward any purchases as a Nordstrom gift card. Everyone at the event received a tote bag with some wonderful goodies. There was also snacks and coffee and jamba juice provided! The event started with a fun runway show that featured great spring fashions and of course amazing makeup. Each makeup line came out after the show for a few minutes and talked about new products that fit within the spring trends.
Here's the 3 trends they highlighted during the event:
Far from basic, natural tones complement every complexion—not to mention spring's top fashion trends. Strikingly subtle and anything but boring, neutral shades get the shakeup this spring. /to add warmth to your neutral palette, try a pop of sweet color - like violet, rose, even paled-out cherry.
The Right Bright Lip
Juicy colors saturate lips. This is a fun way to play with the bright colors of the season. Evoking tropical vacation spots, juicy colors highlight lips and nails in saturated tones of watermelon, coral and cherry - in matte or velvet textures, or with just a hint of gloss. I love a colorful pout!
Sculpting Made Simple
Easily emphasize your best features. We have all see the many contouring pictures that are circulating the internet. This season it's all about making it easy to highlight and bring your best face forward. By defining brows and emphasizing cheekbones, conturing is made easy with the latest products, tips and tricks.
After the show, we all headed back down to the cosmetics floor to check out all the different brands. They each had many stations set up to consult with you. Many of them were doing specials for the day and were giving out gifts with purchase or even just for stopping by. I started my day by visiting the Aveda counters. They gave me a nice relaxing scalp massage and even gave me some loose curls. We talked thru my hair problems and they gave me recommendations. They were great and I even received a small goodie bag just for stopping by!
For makeup, I took this chance to go and visit some of the brands I don't usually use but have always had an interest in trying. My favorite was being able to experience Guerlain's products. This is a luxury make up brand and everything was so amazing. It really felt like my skin was glowing! Here were my fav items I tried.
