Well, Spring Trend Show ’17 at Nordstrom in Dallas is now history and all I can say is – it did not disappoint. In fact, in words of my BF Shopping Diva “Best Show Ever!”
As many of my readers know, Karen and I have been enjoying these fun and informative Beauty Trend Shows together for years. And, as some of you well know you have to get up early for this one! The doors swing wide open at 7:30 am, so you can grab a seat near the runway, complete with coffee and treats and get ready for the show.
And! I must share… besides fabulous new skincare and makeup products there was one other thing new. For the first time E-V-E-R, I won one of the product drawings!! (And guess what it was?? Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads! And you know they are my all time favorite product! )
Nordstrom’s Beauty Director, Kevin Sifflet, opened the show with his version of that famous phrase from Grimm’s Fairy tale/aka Snow White: “Mirror mirror on the wall – When did this begin to fall?” which got a big roar of laughter from all attendees. I think all of us understood that poem all too well.
Complete with a spring fashion show and introduction of products from many of our favorite line of beauty vendors such as MAC, Trish McEvoy, Chantecaille and YSL, over 400 women (and a very few men) enjoyed the day which was filled with information, makeovers, facials, product demos and beauty. Lots of it!
I was able to reconnect with several friends from the world of beauty such as Marcus Monson, who is National Makeup Artist for Chanel now, and make some new ones, too, which is always very special. But, for now, I wanted to share a few pictures from this year’s show. (Kevin Sifflet, Enrique Starnes-Ortega (DDG Skincare), Pamela Morgan (YSL), and me!)
Over the next few weeks I will share with you some of my favorite beauty products I purchased and you know… they might become some of yours. So, coupled with Cinco de Mayo festivities, frozen margaritas and the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby (Patches I was rooting for you, love!) it was a memory making weekend.
Start each day with your lipstick and a beautiful smile. – makeup.com
