I, along with about 1,500 women, visited Nordstroms this weekend to check out the department store’s annual Spring Cosmetics Trend Show. Women got to experience beauty services like makeup application and brow shaping while seeing the latest new products from all the beauty brands. During my visit, I caught up with Clarins Artistic Director and International Makeup Trainer Eric Antoniotti, who clued us in to some of spring’s essentials. Between the noisy crowd, Eric’s sexy accent and the first-time camera woman who helped us get this interview, some of the info. may have gotten lost in translation. Just in case, I’ve included the highlights below.
Eric’s Spring Essentials:1. Tangerine lips are huge for spring. Clarins lipstick in Coral Tulip #116 is a very wearable coral shade. 2. “Your foundation should like a second skin,” says Eric. His pick is Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation SPF 10. 3. To treat fine lines, Eric loves Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate. “You can apply before or after your makeup to fine lines around your eyes, mouth and forehead.”
