Last Saturday I attended the Nordstrom Fall Beauty Trend Show in Bellevue, Washington and had some fun checking out new looks for fall, both in fashion and in beauty. One of the most exciting aspects of the show for me is the opportunity to see and meet pros in the beauty industry. Last year I got to meet Madonna’s makeup artist and former Shu Uemura artist director Gina Brook (she’s now artistic director at Hourglass Cosmetics). Saturday’s pro was Nonie Creme, creative director for Butter London. I went out and got a Butter London mani/pedi for the occasion.
The show featured looks from Elie Tahari, Diane Von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore, Trina Turk and Calvin Klein to name a few. For beauty, artists from Chantecaille, Laura Mercier, Armani, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Lancome, MAC, Trish McEvoy, Dior, Smashbox and Yves Saint Laurent showed us their looks for fall in addition to the latest skincare from Revive, Clarisonic, Kiehls and Philosophy. I took some pictures for you to see and you can find them below. All in all, the ladies looked gorgeous! There’s was even a suprise famous model in the show, Elina Ivanova from America’s Next Top Model cycle 11. She is a local girl after all.
Of course the other exciting part of the event is getting a quick Oxygen Peel at Philosophy and then getting my makeup done. I try to pick a different brand each time and this year I went with Trish McEvoy. I picked up her new Instant Pick Me Up Lip Shimmer, new Instant Eye Lift Concealer and the Beauty Emergency Card for Eyes. I’ll have more on these products for you soon but so far it is love with the lip shimmer and concealer. It’s not a concealer you were everywhere. Just making at V at the top of the cheek bones towards the brow bone is enough to make you look instantly refreshed.
