Sunny Days

I couldn’t be happier that warm weather is here again! Bright colors and florals are de rigueur. I fully embraced spring from head to toe last weekend while running errands and enjoying the start of outdoor dining season. This Ann Taylor dress just begged to be paired with “The Right Bright Lip” (M·A·C Lipstick in “Speed Dial”) trend featured in the Nordstrom Beauty Trend Show last weekend. What are your favorite spring fashion trends?

Spring 2015 Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom

This weekend, I attended the Nordstrom Spring 2015 Beauty Trend Show at the Nordstrom in Tysons Corner Center. After being warmly greeted upon arrival, I was shown upstairs to the breakfast spread and runway where the fashion show was about to take place. The three “scenes” featured different makeup trends paired with fresh ensembles from the racks. I watched as models floated down the runway showcasing “New Neutrals”, “The Right Bright Lip”, and “Sculpting Made Simple”. Between scenes the emcee, Loredana Grama, Nordstrom Beauty Director, introduced guest speakers from all of the major brands to showcase new products and share tips and tricks for looking your best this season.    One of my favorite looks was featured during “Sculpting Made Simple”. The Guerlain model showed off one of their new products in a blue ombre floral print wrap sheath by Milly. Following the same scene, the Clinique representative showed the audience how to contour using a “C” shape.   “The Right Bright Lip” featured luscious lips by Lancome, Dior, Estee Lauder, and Nars. The audience was encouraged to “take your favorite fruit and go with it”.  Between scenes, the audience was treated to giveaways from Butter London, Clinique, Tom Ford, and many more!  

 Most importantly, I came home with a swag bag containing samples of some of the latest fragrances and products featured in the show.

If you’re interested in attending the next Beauty Trend Show at Nordstrom, make sure to drop by one of their beauty counters in early fall to inquire about local dates as the show takes place twice each year. You may purchase a ticket in advance for $20, which includes a $20 Nordstrom gift card. My lesson learned is to get there early – some moms and daughters had been camping out since 5:30am to snag a front row seat!
