One of the main things I was hoping to scope out when I got there was the goods!
I thought it would actually be a lot more uniform than it was, aside from the VS Makeup set up at all of the stations each of the artists had their own kit mixed with all different kinds of makeup at each station. Some were marked (Nars, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, MAC and Armani) and many unmarked containers. They had a TON of brushes.
They definitely used the VS eyeshadows.
Oh hey, cool curling iron!
Best hairspray ever. And notice the clips on his sleeve!
LOTS of clip ins! I don’t think there was one model I talked to who wasn’t wearing them!
Good lighting is ESSENTIAL for proper makeup application.
VS has a “Look” but I think it’s fun to see how they subtly change things up each year.
This year they wanted the makeup more natural than I’d seen it in the past, they didn’t go super long with the hair and they didn’t go heavy on the tans. It was beautiful.
Even though I’ve already seen the show I am SO EXCITED to watch it again tonight. I don’t know if I’m biased or not but I swear these are my favorite looks ever!
As much fun as it was and as much as I’m so grateful I was able to go, I think it will be even more fun watching it at home in my PJ’s.
IIID Foundation update:
I’m so sorry, trying not to talk about this in every post but I just need to take a moment and thank all of you who have been posting your glowing reviews! This morning I read my very first review and I totally started crying. I was so happy to finally start the line and so grateful when the sales went so well but this is the moment I’ve been waiting for. For you to get it and try it and (hopefully) love it like I do. I’ve hated having to keep it to myself! I am dying to see it on all of your truly beautiful faces!
That being said, I hope that you all feel comfortable to post your honest opinion whatever it may be. I understand that no one product works the same for everyone and I am 1000% committed to my “No Hac’er left behind” policy of making sure that everyone understands how to use it and feels comfortable and beautiful with it on. For all of you who are wanting to know when the medium will be back in stock, it should be early January, but I will keep you updated as to an exact date as soon as I know.
