Daily my morning ritual looks something like this- coffee, blog, shower, find an outfit for work, makeup. Now the last part is usually rushed in an attempt to get out of the house to catch my bus. I generally have more of a no-makeup, makeup routine, where I don't have too many steps and only a few key brush strokes and winged eyeliner is placed. This has led in the past to my sister commenting that I "never really wear makeup." Pssh, if only she knew I actually do spend at least 5 to 10 minutes on this part of my day! Come to think of it a five minute application does seem pretty sparse.

Luckily I had a lesson in makeup application scheduled over at the Bloomingdales beauty counter to assist in overall makeup application perfection. This past weekend I was invited to attend one of my favorite retailers beauty events- The Bloomingdales Makeup Date. It was an event showcasing the key trends in makeup and skincare all while being pampered with freebies, bubbly, and sweet treats. Prior to watching the trend forecast show, my sister- an appropriate plus one, and I were treated to getting our makeup done at Nars. That really was a treat, I'd never gotten my make up done there before and I wanted to bring my makeup gal home with me so she could help with my minimalist morning beauty routine. I left with perfect dewy skin, extra highlighter per my request, as well as a perfect orange-red pout. My sister rocked a metallic purple eye shadow, and glowy bronzed skin.

After our makeup application and the show we headed over to Tom Ford where we smelled the most amazing scents I've ever experienced, and were lucky enough to take home a few just-blended samples. Talk about wanting one of each! The Makeup Date was the perfect way to spend Saturday with my favorite gal- being girly, silly and getting pampered.

Big thanks to Bloomies for the invite!
