A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.


Beauty by L'Oreal at the Real Simple Pop-Up Shop

Food tastings, gift ideas and makeovers! Once again, L'OREAL teamed with Real Simple for this anticipated annual event. Consumers gathered to try AND buy products from various vendors and the beauty brand.

As one of L'OREAL's Pro Team makeup artists, I was happy to provide mini makeovers. Guests had a choice of services: a foundation match, skin consultation or eye/lip application. With each consult, shoppers received a L'OREAL Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara, in black of course, and a sample of Youth Code Serum Intense, a must have to combat fatigued and dull skin. They also enjoyed hair styling with sample gifts from the EverSleek Sulfate Free Smoothing System hair care line.

Most wanted to focus on eyes and lips for everyday or holiday looks. Throughout the event, I used Studio Secrets One Sweep Eyeshadow, HiP Studio Secrets Shadow Duos, True Match Concealer and Extra Intense Liquid Eye Pencil. For lips, I used Color Riche LeGloss and long-wearing Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick.

Favorites for mature skin included Visible Lift Serum Absolue Advanced Aged Reversing Makeup (lightweight foundation with medium coverage to minimize lines with a luminous finish) and new skincare, Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Golden Balm for Face, Neck and Chest. This soft creamy balm seals in moisture and improves elasticity.

If you stopped by our booth at the pop-up shop in Bryant Park, send a picture of your makeover to me at by 12/21/11 -- 6pm EST. I will post pictures on my FaceBook page (The BLACKswan at Beyond Beauty). The first one to send a photo will receive a free Studio Secrets One Sweep Eyeshadow (open to U.S. residents only please).
