This weekend I had the pleasure of doing a Beauty Girl Party for beautiful bride Reesa and her friends and family at her bridal shower. Armed with my stash of beauty loot including cult products, my must haves and insider favorites, I shared my top makeup tips such as how to wear a red lip, beauty and fashion trends, and more. I couldn’t be at a bridal shower without revealing some tricks on how to get picture-perfect skin (remember your primer and self-tanning moisturizer or light-reflective body cream). In tune with my mantra, Beauty Shouldn’t Be A Bitch, I also talked about quick fixes like dry shampoos (Klorane and Jonathan hair powder), great drugstore beauty buys and savvy style buys.
To my surprise, I got the biggest reaction when I mentioned that I bought the dress I was wearing at Target. Here’s the proof! To give the $75 limited-edition Zac Posen for Target dress its exclamation point, I shortened the hemline and paired with tan flat cowboy-inspired boots I bought in a thrift store in NYC’s Lower East Side. Finally, I threw on a Current Elliot denim jacket to brave the windy day.Probably my favorite part of the event was when I got to hook everyone up with the fabulous giveaways. Being that the occasion was to celebrate a couple in love, I gave each guest a The Beauty Girl cosmetic bag, an OPI nail polish in one of their most popular bridal shades, Sweetheart, and a sample of Elizabeth Arden’s fragrance Pretty (see top picture).
I hit lots of other topics, too, so if there’s something I talked about that any of the guests are still wondering about, feel free to comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
