I’ve had such an amazing weekend but I think I need an extra weekend just to recover from this one! First up on Saturday I attended a makeover event hosted by Tarte Cosmetics at ULTA Hulen in Fort Worth, and then today I went to The Makeup Show Dallas where I livetweeted, met with some awesome beauty industry insiders, and shopped my little heart out (blog post and haul to come!).
The Tarte event was absolutely fabulous! I went with my good friend Amanda, from Hockey Sticks and Lipstick and we had a blast meeting with the Tarte makeup artists, buying tons of Tarte stuff, and getting our makeover on.
I’ve been a fan of Tarte products, especially their Power Pigments, for quite some time now so I was so stoked to get to shamelessly play with all their products. See that aisle of stuff? I swatched it. I swatched alllll of it. My hands looked like a bunch of markers exploded everywhere. I’m still scrubbing it off.
After we met all the cool makeup artists we got a chance to sit down and get makeovers using exclusively Tarte products.
Melissa, my makeup artist, had some of the most amazing brows I’ve ever seen. I had extreme brow envy and asked her to give me dreamy brows just like her. Here I am with one eyebrow done. See the difference? See that arch? Truly magical. I ended up buying the Brow Mousse she used on me in hopes of being able to replicate what she did but I don’t know if I ever will.
Next up was Amanda, who finally agreed to give contouring a try. Her artist was phenomenal and gave her a contour that even Kim Kartrashian would be jealous of.
And here is my swag bag of goodies. Some of these I purchased myself, some of these were gifted to me by Tarte, and some of these were little freebies I got from spending over $30 on Tarte products. Overall I had a fabulous time and look forward to reviewing everything later this week. More importantly, I FINALLY GOT THE MARACUJA OIL. If you don’t understand why I’m pee-my-pants-excited, read this post I wrote.
