This one's for all you makeup and beauty lovers. Do you obsess over liquid liner? Collect every possible shade of red lipstick? Have four foundations on the go at the same time? Me too.
Well read on cuz I've got the scoop on an exclusive beauty event happening this week!
This Wednesday night you're invited to a Burberry Beauty Master Class at Nordstrom Ottawa. The class will be led by Patricia Bensimon, National Makeup Artist and National Trainer for Burberry Beauty. It's her first time in Ottawa so you don't want to miss it!
What: Burberry Beauty Master Class with National Burberry Makeup Artist Patricia Bensimon
When: this Wednesday February 17, 2016 at 7:30pm
Where: Nordstrom at Rideau Centre; please proceed to the Burberry Beauty counter upon arrival
RSVP: RSVP to Burberry counter manager Chris Conrad by email or by phone at 613.567.7005
Cost: Nada! Free!
Patricia has worked all around the world and has been featured in some of the biggest magazines out there. She's also worked with oodles of A-listers, so this is your chance to learn industry tips and tricks from the pro herself! Patricia will be teaching effortless everyday looks and answering your questions on all things beauty.
Start thinking about your questions! For me it'll be how to conquer liquid liner: why can I NEVER get both eyes to match? One wing is too high and the other too low, one's too thick and one's too thin... I never seem to get it right.
Bring your friends this Wednesday and make it a girls night! I chatted with the lovely Chris Conrad who manages the Burberry Beauty counter at Nordstrom, and he filled me in on a few more extras you can look forward to:
If you decide to do a little shopping (twist my rubber arm), you'll receive a full-sized gift with purchase (no sample sizes here!) with the purchase of 3 products or more. SWEET. And there may just be some swag too.
Full disclosure: I've been a fan of Burberry Beauty for the last 4 years and before it launched in Canada I'd actually drive to NYC to pick up my favourites at Saks. Yup, I'm just that nuts.
So... I apologize in advance if you get hooked too. But on the plus side, Burberry's products last for ages (this is dab-will-do-ya type stuff), and their colour range is flattering, versatile, and super wearable.
Some of my absolute must-have products from the Burberry line-up:
Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in No. 01 Radiance: one of the best primers I've used. No silicone!
Burberry Kisses lipstick in Oxblood: this one's a cult fave for a reason. Can't go wrong with Oxblood.
Face Contouring Pen in Dark No. 02: contouring made super duper easy. Just draw on then blend.
Eye Colour Contour Pen in Dusky Mauve: budge-proof eyeshadow that's easy to apply and control.
Complete Eye Palette in Mocha No. 2: the perfect palette for day, night, and travel. I love it.
Space is limited and is filling up quickly, so RSVP to reserve your spot.
You can either send Chris a quick email at saying "confirm" and the number of people you're bringing with you. Or call the store at 613.567.7005 (a real person will answer, no joke!) and ask for the Burberry counter.
