I didn’t start wearing make-up until about 3-5 years ago. Still 5 years later, I like it to look as natural as possible but still “put together”. On a day-to-day basis, I don’t need a “beat face” as the makeup guru’s say. I just want to look, enhanced.
Honestly, I think my skills are ok. Really, just ok.
I’ve gotten better over the years, but still struggle with one area, ok two areas … under my eyes (concealer application) and over my eyes (eyeshadow).
This evening I was invited out to a No Makeup “Make Up” application and tutorial at the new SEPHORA in Ponce City Market (Atlanta). The store officially opens Friday, May 27th at 10am. So, I feel kinda special to get a sneak preview of their classes and vip treatment.
6 Things I Learned About SEPHORA tonight:
- They offer FREE beauty classes for all of their beauty insiders in the store.
- It’s free to sign up as a beauty insider.
- The have an instrument that can tell you your Color IQ, which gives you all the perfect colors (foundation, concealer, lip gloss, etc) for your skin. They have 1,500 options for 110 skin tones.
- Their Sephora make up line can hold their own in terms of value with the major brands.
- Samples and more! SEPHORA offer samples of every product they carry. Which gives you time to try out any product before you buy it.
- Employees go through the Science of Sephora school to learn, “skin physiology, the history of makeup, application techniques, the science of creating fragrances, and most importantly, how to interact with SEPHORA’s diverse clientele.”
This is me with no make-up. All natural.
After the “No Make Up” application! I looked enhanced.
If you live in Atlanta, the Ponce City Market is a must visit shopping destination with many swanky shops and cool new restaurants. SEPHORA is new to the Ponce City Market family, but I am sure they will fit right in.
