Sophia and Mommy take on Sephora!

As part of a new year's resolution, I want to become better at applying makeup.  I think I have a pretty good understanding of how "wear" makeup, (I don't think I look like a clown) however; I would like to know more about which brushes I should use for what product(s), eye techniques, brand names, etc.  I would say this will be a new hobby. I'm sure Andrew is... thrilled...ha!

Anywho, Sophia and I stopped by Sephora in the Poughkeepsie Galleria, after I picked her up from daycare.  Sophia was such a good girl!  She entertained herself by eating some Cheerios, playing with a few toys, biting my fingers (thanks to tooth number 6) as a beauty consultant assisted me to find an "everyday" look.




My experience/thoughts:

  • No one asked me if I needed assistance for the first 8 mins. into my visit.
  • Only a handful of the employees presented themselves as if they worked in the beauty industry.  
  • Surprised that employees are not required to have experience in the beauty industry.
  • Impressed with the knowledge Kristen, consultant who helped me, has even though she did not have any background in the beauty industry- it's just her passion.  
  • I learned a few new application techniques:
    • how to correctly apply concealer, foundation, and blush
    • how to correctly outline your face with bronzer- Use the letter E or # 3 as a guide.
Here are the products I purchased.  I will blog my reactions to the products in a few days.  I want to get a feel for them first..
  • Smashbox Complexion Try it Kit in Fair.  Kit includes: High Def. foundation, HD concealer, photo finish foundation primer, and Mini Halo to go Hydrating Perfecting Powder.
  • Sephora Skinny Brush Wrap
  • Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick
  • Sephora Le Waterproof Mascara
Sophia loved holding the brush kit.  I have a feeling she is going to enjoy our shopping trips to Sephora :)
