One of the many perks to this blog has been the events we have gotten to attend. I love to get in a fancy dress, have my hair and nails done, and just look like i rolled off the red carpet. I have the hope that one day that will happen. In the meantime, I am sharing some of the events and things that were part of this night.
Just like Viola Davis on HTGWM here is the real me. No make up and in the chair to take care of my hair. I try to take care of my hair when that nasty color shows up. The lovely girls at Swerve took really good care of me.
Here are some of the products that I used for the night that I love
I just found these marvelous skin care products from a great California gal, Laurie Hermann. I was really excited when she told me this was the same products that Laurie Hermann used on Courteney Cox. They made my face feels so soft and actually removed a few creases around my eyes
I can ‘t stop bragging about this product. It is the perfect cover up and the perfect match up with it is the Nena CC Creme under it. I love it because it works so well in photographs giving the perfect coverage
The Impulse collection from Macy’s certainly added to the look. With 20 eye shadows, 3 blushes, and bronzers , took me from cold Chiberia to Hollywood. Great especially for achieving that Red Carpet smoky eye look as well.
I was thrilled beyond belief when I received the Besame lip stick sample. This shade is the same they use on the ABC series “Agent Carter.” I was a little skeptical of going this dark and red. I was pleasantly surprised when I got a compliment in the bathroom that the shade was perfect for me. Big plus, it didn’t come off after cocktails or dinner.
The dress has to have the right accessories. Until I can borrow some goodies from Harry Winston, some good friends sent me gorgeous pieces that I will treasure
This bracelet started many conversations last night. People were enchanted enough that it was a beautiful piece of jewelry, what was cool to say was that the bracelet told a story. It is from Opera Bracelets. They specialize in making these one of kind bracelets that use beads to tell the story of the world’s greatest operas.
I felt like a star with this beautiful piece of jewelry around my neck. Its the lovely only heart necklace . It sparkles with the beauty of Swarovski crystals and a rhodium heart.
