Beauty Is Skin Deep

"A little powder, a little paint makes a lady what she ain't". I have heard my grandmother use this saying on more than one occasion. Although, this quote may apply on some days when we aren't feeling our best, but we all know that it doesn't matter how much paint we put on, if our skin isn't being taken care of. The canvas has to be in good condition in order for the paint to look good, right? How is your canvas looking?

A few days ago, I had the pleasure of attending The Neiman Marcus First Annual Beauty Event in collaboration with InStyle magazine and can I tell you?  It was FABulous!!!! Two of my favorite things(fashion and beauty) under one classy roof! It doesn't get any better than that! There were cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, makeovers, prizes, swag bags and much more.

Nicole Williams, celebrity makeup artist, and host for the event, did an excellent job getting us excited for all of the new trends in fashion and beauty. The evening began with a fashion show, where beauty experts from  brands such as LeMētier De Beautē, Trish McEvoy, and Veneffect, to name a few, joined forces with beautiful models to present their top picks for the season. It was a lot to take in, but extremely informative. The only downfall, was the fact that I wanted to purchase every beauty product that was presented!

I promised myself that I would use the products I already have, before I purchase anything else. Well, that went right out the window! I did only purchase one product(for those of you who know me, that's a miracle in itself),but I do have a very large list of the items I will be going back to NM for in the near future.

With the conclusion of the fashion show, the fun continued, as we were escorted to the cosmetic department for some continued pampering with the beauty experts. I learned about some wonderful new products, got some new makeup tips, and met some new friends. NM knows how to throw a girls night out and I look forward to attending more events like this one. You didn't miss out because this event runs through September 22.

So,whether you need to replenish what you already have, are looking to try out one of this season's hottest makeup trends, or would like to refresh your current look, I encourage you to pop on over to Neiman Marcus in Paramus, N.J.  The sales staff is extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and hands on, and they will find the right product that will work for you, because after all, it is "all about you."
