I was invited to the recent NORDSTROM BEAUTY EVENT and selected one of my favorite lines, BOBBI BROWN, to learn more about new products.  The day I was there the beauty department was packed with the over 50 crowd!

I learned 12 years ago, if I wanted to get the most from my makeup, go to the experts and receive a little education!

Glenda at Bobbi Brown Nordstrom in The Shops of La Cantera is one of the best professors I sat before.  She took such care to explain and discuss each step of the makeup process!

Bobbi Brown’s secret to the makeup universe is prepping, correcting, and concealing.  You will walk away with this diagram explaining exactly what was done and the products utilized to achieve the look.  Very helpful!

I left with a new appreciation of BRONZER ….which I stopped using a couple of years ago.  Glenda informed me Bobbi Brown says bronzer is a must because of the depth it adds to your look.  She showed me exactly where to place it, blend it, and not to forget the neck and chest.  She also taught me when to apply with a brush and when to warm with my fingers to get just the right blend.  Using our fingers is not always a bad thing.  And I was impressed with THE STICK FOUNDATION.

I kind of wish Glenda and my hair stylist lived with me and could do this every day!  How fun would that be…here is a before and after on my brows.  Love this LONG WEAR BROW PENCIL..

I am also sold on the brush in this new EYE OPENING MASCARA.  My current mascara is the SMOKEY EYE, but I will be switching as soon as it runs out.  Loved this product.  I also really like the STONE color of eye shadow Glenda selected for me.

Here is the new BRIGHTENING FINISHING POWDER…for our youthful dew!

Don’t fear the beauty departments!  They are fun and help so much.
The NORDSTROM event was like a party and every customer walked away with a goodie bag after purchase.  
Best part… I am a bronzer girl again!

Have you been to a beauty counter to get help?  Please share your experience!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Thanks to Glenda and all the fun staff of NORDSTROM AT THE SHOPS OF LA CANTERA.
