Chasing Davies: Beauty Brands Event Recap

Beauty Brands Event Recap

Last weekend, I had the pleasure - and so much fun - hosting a summer event at Beauty Brands.  You all were invited, many $10 gift cards were handed out (to all that came), a $100 gift card was given to a winner (congrats Erin!), and lots of makeup/products were tested. 

HUGE thank you for all that attended. I loved catching up, seeing and meeting you all. If you weren't able to attend - no worries, another one will happen in September!  Watch for more info soon - I'll announce here on the blog and on Facebook.

I wanted to share a few photos from Saturday's event - but also the top products people were flocking to buy!  And, what I got myself!  Top two products that everyone was buying & that I also LOVE:

1. Supergoop Anti-Aging Eye Cream with SPF
I just learned about the brand, Supergoop, from last week's event at one of the featured demo station - this brand is an award-winning master beauty brand that thinks about your skin's safety from the sun (everything has SPF!), includes anti-aging properties and specializes in specific facial areas to make the best products for that area of your face (i.e. under eyes!).  
The eye cream was everyone's favorite!  It includes SPF to protect the thin, delicate skin under and around your eye.  The applicator also helps to de-puff and anti-aging properties work to fight wrinkles.  The cream also has reflectors included that brighten under your eye - I love the look!  I bought this, too!

2. Laura Geller Baked Color & Contour Set
I have had this color and contour set for a year now and it's one of my most important products in my makeup arsenal! It is 3 things in one - which also makes it easy to travel with.  Half of it is contour, 1/4 of it is highlighter and the last 1/4 is blush!  And ever since falling in love with this product, I've tried many others from Laura Geller and now use many things from her line!

There were four different demo stations where visitors could test makeup and products with the help of the pros.  People learned what products made most sense for their skin types or coloring, etc. And walked away knowing how to apply!

One of the products I tried at the melt-proof makeup station was Gray Lipstick! Gray! (or Grey?)  I was super skeptical - but after hearing that it's going to be a big trend for fall, I HAD to try it.  And at first I wasn't sold, but then after awhile - it grew on me.  We are both wearing Smashbox's Be Legendary Lipstick in 'Punked Matte.'  I actually ended up buying this because I loved it so much!

And of course, no event is complete with out some snacks, shopping and a backdrop for photos.  See more from the party below!

 And can we just SWOON over the little ladies that came and had their hair done in the up-do station?  I mean... so cute.  It ended up being such a cute/fun event for mama and daughters to come to together.

P.s. for those that have asked - my dress is here!

Again - huge thanks to everyone who came out. It was really fun, and I look forward to doing it again for Fall!
