OK, so it’s been a while. I have awesome excuses: I started a new job last Monday and I passed my oral exam (for PhD comprehensives) last Wednesday. This weekend, I did the minimum. I was freaking exhausted from trying to balance working long hours and studying. This is why I specifically saved my “free makeover” card for Saturday (a perk of the VIB status).
I was assigned to a really cool Sephora consultant who first asked me what I wanted out of the makeover and proceeded to give me a Color IQ. A device is used to determine Color IQ which then assigns a Color IQ number that pinpoints foundation that best matches your skin.
Similar to the consultant that gave me a facial, she told me that I had really good skin and didn’t need concealer. She applied a liquid foundation, eye shadow from a Naked palette (Naked Smokey), liner, mascara, lips, and a bit of contouring. I’ll give you specifics on products as we progress through the week. My brows were already filled but she extended it. I hate long eyebrows because my face is small. I felt like I had a headband going around my forehead. I wasn’t specifically thrilled with the smokey eye either. I guess I don’t need a lot of makeup but requested she teach me how to do it; although; I will probably never do it -_-
Overall, I was satisfied with the makeover and bought two of the recommended products. I had a lot of the other items already. Would I pay for a makeover from them? Probably not but thanks for the offer Sephora.
I am 90% done with the new site: pinkgumbeaux.com. Although I will continue to have a presence on Blogger, it will no longer be my main blog *insert tears here* Till then, you know I need friends so like Pink Gumbeaux on Facebook and follow me on Twitter and Instagram.
