You guys already know how much I love Birchbox. I love to brag that I was one of their first twenty “beta members” back, a few years ago. I’ve gotten my whole family + countless friends hooked on the monthly treat and have been a big fan – way before they were such a big deal. Naturally, I was really excited when they invited me to a little afternoon of pampering + fun shoot to be a part of their Madewell lookbook with four other bloggers.
First I’m sharing the little makeover they gave me (at Jeff Chastain Parlour). Be sure to come back later today to see the pieces I chose from Madewell.
We started out with the hair. (Surprise!) I went with messy beachy waves.
Because I was already five days into my blow-out (gross, I know, but you already know by now that I hate washing my hair) my stylist loaded up my hair with Oribe’s Texturizing Spray (best smell ever) and Serge Normant’s Meta Revive Dry Shampoo.
After my hair was done, I headed over to makeup, where the (amazing) Nam Vo gave me a perfect Spring look. Amongst other things, she used this gorgeous Blush’n’Brighten Compact to give me some glow, perked up my eyes with these Stila eyeshadows, and painted on the most delicious tangerine lip in “Lucy.”
She also used Benefit’s amazing new concealer, Fakeup. Love this stuff.
And here is the final hair + makeup! I’ll be back a little later today to share my outfit… in the meantime, check out this video!
P.S. YOU GUYS. My sister’s textile line launched today and it is SICK. Go here, immediately, and check it out.
