I recently hosted an event at Barneys New York SF in partnership with Givenchy. It was an evening filled with makeovers and some of my closest blogging buddies. I tried out a darker nude lip, something I wouldn't normally put on myself, but loved that I was able to experiment with colors outside my comfort zone. It was even more fun to watch each gal transform and take on a new look -each look was different from the one before.
What was I loved was that each girl's personality really came out with the products chosen for her. Adiel tried out a beautiful purple smokey eye (something I wish I could do!), Carlina rocked out her signature bold red lip (and looked fabulous doing so), Melissa experimented with a brown liner and daytime smokey eye (definitely gave me some inspiration to try out a brown liner!), and Alyssa looked ethereal in a shimmery pink gloss and dewy foundation.
Some pretty wonderful people came out to show their support and for that I am so very thankful. If there's any doubt that the San Francisco blogging community isn't tight knit and truly supportive of one another, you might just be looking in the wrong places. I, for one, can say that I'm pretty gosh darn thankful to be surrounded by the ones who are.
Thank you to all who came (from near and far, at that!) and special thanks to Melissa for capturing moments from the event!
