Me & Raechel at my all time favorite beauty store Sephora!! Can't you just see the joy on our faces?!
I offer all sorts of services to my clients, but one of my favorites is to go makeup shopping with them. A sort of "personal shopper" service if you will.
My clients enjoy hiring me to do this with them because:
- we don't go and drop their money at ONE single makeup counter
- they don't have to sit in someone's chair/stool for an hour and have the whole general public stare at them as they get made up at a local mall! awkward...
- most importantly, I make product suggestions based on my clients BUDGET. And as you know, I do not believe that ONE single makeup manufacturer does everything right. Nor do I believe that you have to buy ONLY high end department store makeup to achieve the perfectly pretty face.
My favorite drugstore- I am at Target atleast once a week, maybe twice.
So I got to work with a wonderfully sweet, soon to be mom of two (yeh! I'm so excited for you about this Raechel!), and we did a little makeup hopping and shopping. She was such a trooper since she is literally about to have a new baby any day now (you'll notice in these photos she looks fab through this pregnancy-lucky girl!!).
She has her face chart in her basket that I had scribbled all sorts of product suggestions on!
Due to the fact that she didn't like the thought of going to a counter or Sephora alone, bc let's face it those places can be overwhelming/intimidating, she asked for my help. She needed to treat herself to some new beauty products appropriate for her skin tone and coloring since she hadn't bought any new products in awhile and wanted to spend her money wisely and get the most bang for her buck. In walks JennySue to take the confusion out of it all!!
We hit Target first, the mecca of all drugstores, and got most of our products here. Check her basket of goodies out! My fave type products to buy from drugstores- mascara, lipstick/glosses, lipliners and eyeliners.
We then hit up Sephora, which literally makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. I'm like Charlie in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory!! This place is great bc we could actually try out and test certain products to make sure we were finding the right colors for her. Here, we spent money on products like- concealer, blush, eyeshadows, and brushes.
After it was all said and done, she walked away with hopefully more knowledge on what colors work for her and what products she needed to fill in the holes in her current makeup arsenal! And to top off an already very fun day with Raechel, it actually snowed- okay, snow flurries, but that's a big deal for us here in the South!
Here is me and my son Jack amazed by the fact that there was even the tiniest bit of white stuff on the roof- can you even see it?? It was the best type of snow- light, white, and didn't stick, so it caused no messy roadways! Here's to hoping for the possibility of a white Christmas here in Georgia. I've seen crazier things happen...
