Happy Friday y’all!! Who is excited for the weekend?! I know I am! I’m heading to Tiger Town for the game tomorrow. One of the last home games—just one left after this weekend! I don’t know where this football season has gone! Fall is flying by!
Well if you are going to be staying around Charleston this weekend then you should head on in to Cos Bar downtown on King St for a chance to meet Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani’s Celebrity Face Designer! He’ll be there from 10 am to 5pm Saturday. He and his team will be showing the hottest trends from the runway to the red carpet. And 10% of the proceeds go to the Farrah Fawcett Foundation! If you want to make an appointment to get beautified send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-793-1776.
Speaking of getting all dolled up I had the pleasure of heading in to Cos Bar a couple of weeks ago when they had Tom Ford artists in. I’m a big fan of Cos Bar—you may remember me bragging about them in the past. They have prestige brands that no other stores have—actually they are the only retailer of Tom Ford in the Carolinas. And the women that work there are sooo knowledgeable. I always walk out with awesome purchases and new makeup tips. I also see Karen for my eyebrow threading! She is the best!
The first part of my makeover was a fragrance consulting session. I’ve never had anyone ask about how I like to feel when wearing a fragrance or to describe what I like. I usually walk in a department store, smell fragrances, and decide on my own. So this was a really unique experience. The Tom Ford rep was on point. She really nailed 3 fragrances for me. And they are amazing! Definitely thinking I’m going to need to go Tom Ford for my next fragrance purchase. My favorite that she picked out for me was the Jasmine Rouge. Loveeee!
Heavenly did my makeup and she had me looking fabulous! Super natural but more eye makeup than I typically wear. I’ve never used any Tom Ford products before so it was really neat to learn about the brand and see what he has to offer in the cosmetic world. The first product that Heavenly used on me that I loved was the foundation stick. I have never used a foundation stick before. I usually either use powder, liquid, or some sort of BB or CC cream (yes, I have a problem with trying different products!). But I really like the idea of the foundation stick. You can do as little or as much coverage as you would like. And it’s really handy as you can just throw it in your bag for touch ups.
Some other products that were used that I loved include the eyebrow pen and some eyeshadows. I may be switching my eyebrow pencil when I run out of mine. It’s larger so it fills in really nicely and goes on super smooth. The 2 eyeshadow products that I fell in love with (and of course had to leave with) are a cream shadow in Sphinx and a pallet in Disco Dust. I’m a very big fan of the neutral colors—tans, browns, golds, rose golds, etc. and these 2 products are amazinggggg. Soooo glad I bought them.
Here are my before and after pics (don’t judge my before lol. This was tough to share! These are unfiltered and super awkward! lol):
And of course I snapped a shameless car selfie ha!
Heavenly did a stunning job with my makeover! I didn’t want to take off my makeup that night! If you are looking for a new place to shop for your cosmetic needs definitely check out Cos Bar if you haven’t yet! They are the best! Go treat yo’self!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
