DOUGHNUTS, JUICE & MAKE OVERS
So it was just a typical weekday morning for me. You know the drill: hopped out of bed, got the family out the door, headed over to Saks Fifth Avenue and had my face made up by a beauty specialist…… What? Okay, okay so it was a little different than my normal routine. I was lucky enough to be invited to Saks Fifth Avenue’s Barefaced Breakfast. Several local bloggers showed up bright and early to Saks at Plaza Frontenac. Once there, we were treated to a light breakfast, given a tour of the GORGEOUS cosmetic department and then, (this is the BEST part) each assigned a personal make up artist! (They had me at make up……)
I was fortunate enough to be assigned to Sharon Roseland, a skin care professional with Sisley. This French company has been manufacturing high quality cosmetics for 37 years. Sisley uses botanicals and all natural ingredients, which means they are actually good for your skin! “Sisley truly is a line that has something for every stage of the life of your skin”, says Roseland, ” we have it covered for teens through age 110!” Indeed, the products she used on me smelled amazing and felt so light. First, we discussed my skin type and what kind of “face” I was looking for. After that, Sharon was on a roll! She patiently explained each item before she applied it to my skin. I loved the lotions and the make up, it offered coverage, yet I didn’t look “made up”. She really knew the line and I learned a lot about Sisley.
This event was a chance to showcase the Saks Fifth Avenue Beauty Week. Now through October 5th, when you spend $100 in cosmetics or fragrances, you will receive a sample filled tote with your purchase. And let me tell you, when they say sample filled, they mean s.a.m.p.l.e f.i.l.l.e.d! This tote is packed! You get your choice of tote color: navy, cognac or white. Some of the samples included are: Kiehl’s Wrinkle Reducing Cream, Dior Eyes Essentials, Yves Saint Laurent Eye Liberator Serum, Elie Saab perfume, a coupon for $50.00 off of a $250.00 sunglasses purchase, and lots more! It’s HANTASTIC!
Well, you probably want to see the results, right? Sharon Roseland did an amazing job. I loved my “face”! She moisturized me perfectly, then applied just enough cosmetics to enhance, but not over exaggerate my features. See for yourself:
