My makeup bag is boring, honestly. I used to have drawers filled with colored eye shadows, glittery pots of fun and lipsticks to match each mood, but as I grew older, I felt that those things were to be retired and basic browns were my only options when I became a professional, a wife and mother. Sometimes, if I feel crazy, I’ll sweep a light purple over my eyelid, but not too much, I’m only going to the grocery store. If this sounds familiar and your make-up bag is suffering from a post-college/ “mom on the go” rut, mark your calendar for Lancome’s Seasonal Style event on April 22nd and 23rd at Macy’s at Columbia Center Mall in Kennewick. National Makeup Artist Jason Leong and his team of miracle workers are in town for a private makeup lesson. Now, this is special!
We all see those really beautiful shades of eye-shadows at the make-up counter: purples that shimmer like lilacs in the fresh spring rain, blues the color of the Pacific, greens that make you wonder if they taste like mint… Now is your chance to learn how to use them! Call Macy’s for an appointment and for only $25, which goes toward your makeup purchase, you can learn how to apply these colors, without looking like a 12-year-old who found her older sister’s stash of “going out makeup.” During your one-hour-appointment you will learn how to create the perfect completion and the latest tips and beauty trends for this spring. There will be 20 make-up artists an hour, with appointments available for 11am, 2pm and 4pm each day. This not only means you have the chance to get a one-on-one tutorial, but invite your Galfriends for a group outing! Maybe you’ve wanted to learn these tips, but were too shy to ask the Barbie doll looking girl at the mall help. Or maybe you want to introduce your friend to a different shade of shadow besides “Mochachino Matte” and this would be a fun way to do it. Whatever your motivation, be sure to call Connie at Macy’s as soon as you can to book your appointment: 509-734-6358.
And when you’re done getting your make-up done, be sure to stop by Freddy’s to get a gallon of milk. Five bucks says you will turn a few heads, and not because you’re wearing your slippers to the grocery this time.
