It’s Beginning to Look Like the Holidays

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go…and indeed it is!

So, last Sunday I attended the Nordstrom Holiday party by invitation only and what an event it was.  My plus one was my sweet hubby who really enjoyed all the food (and there was plenty of it) along with all  the festivities.  I, on the other hand, filled my shopping bag several times over with gifts for my girls and I must admit a few bags with several of my favorites.

You know how I love the ‘glow’ – year round, but especially during the holidays, right? Well, there is something for every ‘glow girl’ this year!

Charlotte Tilbury has the amazing Wonder Glow cream which she calls ‘instant soft-focus beauty flash’.  This is a primer girlfriends, but it adds a subtle glow to your foundation and has a beautiful finish.

Anastasia Beverly Hills has a Glow Kit as well.  This glow kit comes with four beautiful metallic powder highlighters for intense luminosity. These powders are so much fun to work with. Just layer the highly blendable shades together or wear them separately on the eyes and body for a total radiant look.

My favorite eye shadow kit this year is by Urban Decay – Naked Pallet for smoky eyes.  I love the colors and these too are so blendable for either day or night.  By the way I use youtube instruction videos to create different looks with this pallet and to help me not look ‘over’ done for work.  Love. It!

And, or course my ‘go to’ … Dr. Dennis Gross Glow Pads.  I have used these pads for over five years and they are always a staple on my shelf.  Yes, I picked up more at the holiday party, because they are the best ‘pick me up’ when it comes to needing a new glow.

Whatever ways you decide celebrate the holidays with a glow whether it is from the outside or from the inside remember to always finish it with a smile!

Make Them Wonder About Your Glow

I just love, love, love product launches… they are always, educational, inspiring and just fun, fun, fun. That’s what I literally walked into last week as I strolled through Nordstrom as I headed to the parking lot after some shopping at Chico’s. This new product line for Nordstrom was launching in Dallas, following previous debuts in London, New York Los Angeles and coincided with Chicago. Charlotte Tilbury and the idea behind her product application is not only unique but enjoyable. Made for the “naturally glamourous woman over 55, who has a little ‘dare’ in her”, it offers products that can take you from an Ingenue to Rock Chick with just a touch of your hand and a few products.

The concept: A deck of cards with different “looks” is displayed on the counter. They range from…the Ingenue, the Golden Goddess, the Uptown Girl, the Rock Chick, Dolce Vita, The Bombshell, Vintage Vamp, Glamour Muse, and of course – the Rebel. I played it safe and chose Sophisticate for my first look.

After my makeup artist, Constantine, instructed me to pick a glamour card he then showed me a list of all the products used to achieve the look listed on the back of the card. Makes shopping and decisions easy! Then, Charlotte Tilbury’s website has the ‘how to video’ for your card to give you step-by-step instructions.

I was so excited over this unique concept, my friend, Karen, and I made another visit to the Charlotte Tilbury counter at Nordstrom a few days later following our lunch. We visited with Seth, who shared more products/information with us. I picked up several products I will review over the next few weeks, but one in particular I want to share with you is Wonderglow Instant Soft-Focus Beauty Flash, referred to as a miracle fix. It contains collagen-boosting peptides and patented wrinkle-preventing ingredients which are fused with the light-reflecting microspheres to fill in wrinkles and scatter light to blur away lines and flood skin with luminosity. Use this ‘glow stick’ as your primer, but you can wear WonderGlow alone or under foundation. It does not make my skin look like it has too much shine, but my skin seems to appear to glow.

Charlotte Tilbury products are currently available in London, Los Angeles, Chicago and now Dallas (at Nordstrom’s) as well, as through her website.
