Tonight I had the pleasure of attending the holiday launch party for STILA cosmetics and ARDELL lashes as a Vervegirl rep. The event was amazing, we got glammed up and lashed up.
STILA's new holiday collection is abosolutely gorgeous. The colour palettes are perfect for every skin tone and they are super easy to work with. The packaging in itself is enough reason to purchase any of the products.
The event took place at Wish cafe downtown and it was the perfect setting. White walls and currents cascading from the ceiling with low lighting all over and couches to lounge on, made you feel welcome and at home. Hor dourves and an open bar with their signature cocktail of the night made it a great environment to sit down and connect with other bloggers and industry gals.
When you first walk in they had a little station set up where you can put together a gift set with STILA and Ardell products to be given as a Christmas gift to a woman in need through the YWCA (www.ywcatoronto.org). We also got to write a little personalized message to put in the gift box, which I thought was just amazing. After putting together the gift boxes around the corner they had another station set up where you get your makeup done or touched up and also get lashed up by STILA and Ardell makeup artists. Me being me, I already went with my makeup done, so the makeup artist just jazzed me up a bit and added some sparkle to my eyes using the Snow Angel Colour palette and she also added a little plum to my cheeks, because I already had some plumy purple lips going on. To enhance the purple I already had on my lips she used Black Cherry lip glaze to add some shine and make my lips pop even more. After my makeup was holiday-fied an artist from Ardell gave me a great pair of falsies to finish off my holiday look!!! (did you know Ardell lashes are made of real human hair and you can wear them every day for two weeks straight, because I just learned that tonight!!!)
Through out the event I met some great people, that I hope to stay in touch with and we also got some awesome goodie bags, with their whole holiday collection inside!!!! I was totally not expecting to get as much as they gave us.
For my outfit I wore:
Black jeggings: guess
Pearl trim gold top: ricki's
Chanel tweed cropped jacket: ricki's
Purse: H&M (which I am totally loving right now, because it has two compartments and folds over!!)
For my makeup I will dedicate a post just for the look, so I can do a step by step how to and I don't want to make this post incredibly long..
I plan to do a series of Holiday makeup tutorials featuring these palettes once a week, starting with my first post of this look in the next couple of days. (let me know if you like this idea)
If you have any specific makeup looks/tutorials that you want to see me do then please comment below, because I have been getting a great response from the looks I have recently posted
Thanks a bunch lovelies!!!
