The ultimate Clinique Party

I know, I know, this is rather late but I wanted to share what went down at the Clinique Real Women Party anyway. It was, as all Clinique parties go, an intimate affair. All my favorite people were there plus I got to meet one of my readers, Mina! It was chika all afternoon at the Clinique Rockwell counter and even most of the evening as we had dinner together. Super fun.

That's Mina and that's me!

Was so glad to have met Gino, who was Lloyda's reader date last night. He is a walking beauty ingredients dictionary. For serious! He is so obsessive about the ingredients in all the products he uses! I love it. I should definitely ask him to do a guest post soon, you'll love him too.

And here's Mina's make over. Tip: dotting liquid foundation on your face is the best way to ensure that you get to spread it evenly.

This is how pros contour! The MUA, Tricia, used a very dark liquid foundation to draw a chisel-shape on the side of Mina's face, then blended it out. She also added lines on Mina's forehead and jaw then softened them.

The gorgeous ending. All Clinique!

This is May Ann getting her face done. She comments as Esquire here on my blog - I always look forward to hearing from her!

Sophie and Nikki, tight BFFs

Shen being the consummate blogger

Lauren was there also! Haven't seen her in ages.
