Fall Trend Show is Coming!

I had to make a quick visit to Nordstrom today and get a new foundation.  Surprise. Surprise!  It’s Triple Points until Sunday so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite beauty products.

Second surprise is next week is Fall Trend Week!  I made my appointment on Friday for a Dr. Dennis Gross facial at 10 followed by a makeup session at YSL at 11:00.  I cannot wait to see the new fall fashions and beauty products for the season and of course the holidays.

I must say it’s 92 degrees in Dallas today and it will be the same for the next three days… but fall is coming – at least that’s what the weatherman says!

If you are in the Dallas area and would like to get your tickets for Trend Show next Saturday or would like to schedule an appointment, you can contact Gilda or Melissa Beauty Stylists at Northpark Dallas.  Their number is 214-231-3900, ext 1096.

Beautiful Skin With A Bonus!

As I mentioned on my last post there were several new products which debuted during the Spring Trend Show that I want to share … and several that I purchased that I am already in love with.

Karen and I both love Dior’s Capture Totale DreamSkin Perfect Skin Creator.  It’s that little something ‘extra’ we add between our moisturizer and makeup.  Much like a primer, but it is light and brightens your skin too and makes for a ‘perfect’ poreless canvas.  We had booked our makeup session with Dior following the show so we were looking forward to seeing what’s new with Dior. And I found it!

Capture Totale Dream Skin Cushion.  Yes, it has the Dream Skin addition to the foundation, but this cushion foundation promises to refine skin texture, reduce spots, redness, and smooth, and firm the skin. It is lightweight but long lasting and protects the skin with an SPF50.  And surprise! this cushion comes with a bonus refill!

This is a light, buildable foundation, but for complete coverage I apply a small amount of my foundation and then press the cushion over it. The formula is so hydrating it makes my complexion appear more plump and dewy.  It also controls oil and shine, so it will work well with summer coming especially in warm weather climates such as Texas. But, if you prefer a no look foundation, this works too.  It’s my ‘go to’ look for the weekends or days I just only want to remove the shine and look like I’m makeupless.

As I mentioned… the compact foundation comes with its own applicator which can be turned over and used when the refill is inserted. I love this new product and it is just in time for summer.

And here’s another bonus – but you must act FAST!

Tomorrow, Saturday, May 27 is Mascara Madness at Nordstrom.  That’s when we can stock up on our favorites or try new ones.  Mascara Madness – Buy 2 mascaras and get one free!  Tomorrow only.  IF YOU ARE IN TEXAS you can call or text my favorite Beauty Consultant, Lauren Cave, at 817-948-6523 and order your mascara.  Nordstrom will ship it to you!  Tomorrow ONLY!
