What’s better than a night out with indulging in macaroons and Moët? Playing with makeup while doing it!
Lucky me was invited to check out MAKE UP FOR EVER’s unveiling of their new HD Blush and Pressed Powder at their boutique at the King of Prussia Mall.
The HD Blush ($26, Sephora.com) in itself is amazing–a light weight cream blush that blends effortlessly into the skin for a flawless finish. It comes in 16 shades that range from light to medium to tan to deep—booth with cool and warm undertones. Since I like peachy undertones, I was given #315 to try.
One of the great things about MAKE UP FOR EVER is that they are very into educating consumers on how to use their product. Jayme, the lead makeup artist at the King of Prussia boutique, showed me the new technique to apply the HD Blush called the “Figure Eight”. After applying product to the angled end of the 158 Double Ended Sculpting Brush ($53, sephora.com), start at the top of your cheekbone by your hairline and work your way to the apple of your cheek in the formation of an 8. Easy breezy for a classic blush application.
Also, new in the HD collection is the HD Pressed Powder ($36, sephora.com). It’s great for reducing fine lines and blurring out blemishes. Great for touch ups through out the day, it zaps any sign of oil. Jayme showed me how to apply this using the 124 Powder Kabuki Brush ($52, sephora.com) using a press and roll technique.
I had such a great time learning more about the brand, talking to the artists and sampling the products. I even got a chance to finally try their popular HD Invisible Cover Foundation (matched to #153), that has developed its own cult following. And on my list to do is attend one of their MAKE UP MASTERY classes offered every Monday at MAKE UP FOR EVER boutiques. Each class is only $25 for a 90 minute class.
