At 7:30 am, on Saturday September 17th, I found myself walking briskly with excitement into Nordstrom -Perimeter Mall location, in Atlanta.
Why was I up at the crack of dawn and headed to a department store you might ask. Well, I was invited to attend Nordstrom’s Fall 2011 Cosmetics Trend Show.
Regardless of the time, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a glance at the new make up looks for the upcoming season.
My early morning began with an adorable purse/gift bag and light breakfast. We, all 200+ attendees, were then ushered to the 3rd floor of Nordstrom’s to view a red carpet presentation.
Models dressed to impress with flawless faces of make up, walked the runway, to tunes provided by a DJ, while brands like Dior, Armani, Philosophy, M-A-C, & Trish McEvoy dished about their Fall products.
Between brand presentations host Karen DeLauro, Nordstrom Beauty Director, and Ross Burton, Celebrity Makeup Artist, engaged the audience with giveaways and beauty tips.
As the morning ended attendees were given the opportunity to partake in free beauty services, such as makeovers, facial cleanings, and brow maintenance.
I had an awesome time at this event and picked up several beauty tips and trick along the way. Waking up early pays off after all!
