So, at lunch I went down to the Sephora at the Eaton’s Centre to get a 5-Minute face done as part of a promotion for Carmindy’s The 5-Minute Face: The Quick & Easy Makeup Guide For Every Woman. And boy, it was fun. Almost as much fun as learning to do the ‘smoky’ eye when I went to MAC for the ultimate girlie make-up party.
While the look that I wanted, according to the makeup artist (the retro 60s face from the book) would take more than 5 minutes (shockingly!), she did do a lovely job of smoothing out my skin and giving me a mini-smoky eye. Even though I already know how to do that, I did manage to pick up some tips that will help with the Brigitte Bardot-inspired look I am going to try out this week.
Carmindy, of course, is gorgeous, and was helpful with her tips; she was also telling everyone that women have got to stop putting themselves down (I’m paraphrasing), and enjoy their beauty (and again, paraphrasing).
Although I did have a moment of panic that she would take one look at me and say, “Yup we need to get you on the show right away…” On the whole, for a lunch-hour break, it was totally fun.
