M.A.C. Skinfinish (Dark), Blush (Love Thing), Plushglass (Big Baby)

Today was a momentous occasion…my niece got her first makeup lesson! She is entering junior high next week and at that “tween” stage between no makeup and gobs. We visited the M.A.C. counter at Nordstrom and found 5 products for a back to school look that is pretty, natural and easy to apply.

My niece gets her first M.A.C. makeup application, oh the joy:-)

I think the overall look is so beautiful and age-appropriate. These colors would also make a great neutral palette on all ages.

Beauty’s Best on QVC and Special Value Preview

This weekend I’ll be glued to the TV for 26 hours of “Beauty’s Best” on QVC (thank goodness it’s supposed to rain here in Seattle). It is QVC’s biggest beauty event ever! Starting at 7PM PST on Friday, the day will be filled with best-selling and top voted products and values in makeup, hair care and skin solutions. There are dedicated shows to Mally, Smashbox, Supersmile, Bare Escentuals, Neutrogena Dermatologics and Philosophy, plus hours featuring combined brands, such as the Beauty Clinic.

Clarisonic Cleansing System

The Today’s Special Value for Saturday will be the customer favorite Clarisonic, a facial cleansing machine that uses sonic technology. I used the Clarisonic for several months and didn’t see much of a difference. However, many women can’t live without this system and it is a staple at leading spas, so it might be worth a try.

No surprise, I’m especially excited about the six hours of Mally Beauty! The preview promises lots of new stuff. Mally also has a gift with purchase (a City Chick eyeliner in espresso) until Sunday on select items.

  2. gorgeous! I remember my first make-up lesson when you lived in Spokane … and it even included a long over due brow tweeze 🙂

    • Ha! I didn’t mention that our outing also included brow waxing, which ended in tears. I guess it’s a learned experience. Glad your memories aren’t as traumatic, I sure enjoyed it.

  3. She looks great! 🙂
