Makeup and Bubbles Evening – June 2014
Winter is here! Snow is falling! You can feel the energy building as the mountains turn white and the air turns crisp. This is always our busiest time of year in the Snowy Mountains. And to celebrate the start of the ski season, I recently held a “Makeup and Bubbles” evening at Alpine Beginnings. The idea was to spend a fun evening sharing tips and tricks on how to apply makeup to suit your individual complexion. The response was overwhelming, and I have to say I was worried we wouldn’t fit everyone in! But it was a great night. We covered the basics of skincare, how to use products like primer and concealer, how to choose the right foundation, and the best eye makeup for your colouring. We also talked about lips, eyebrows, blush, a product review (I use mainly MAC products when doing bride and special occasion makeup), and of course all the latest gossip from around town.
The guests had so many questions, and were so enthusiastic about each topic, that we ended up taking far longer than the 2 hours I had originally planned. But nobody minded! Especially not with the champagne flowing. I think everybody learnt something from the night, and went away with a renewed appreciation of their own beauty. For example, one of the ladies never wore mascara, but was converted when I demonstrated how easy fibre lash extension mascara is. Another guest was dubious when I suggested purple as the ideal colour for her eyes, but understood why once she tried it out (and everyone else told her how great she looked).
The evening was so popular, that I will be holding another Makeup and Bubbles evening later in the year. In the meantime, here are some fun photos from the night.
It really was wonderful to see everyone looking so gorgeous and having so much fun!
I hope to see your beautiful faces on the ski slopes or around town!
