Beauty News: Coming Up On Makeup Junkie!

I have some very exciting events I'd like to share coming up on Makeup Junkie!

Yesterday I did a beauty shoot with a good friend of mine, Mila Victoria, who is an amazing fashion photographer and makeup artist. The picture is my work area which started out fairly neat but by the 4th look ended up disastrous! But in my defense the table was pretty small. However, I'm still embarrassed lol. I'm really excited because it's the first beauty shoot I've done in a year and we came away with some really amazing shoots! I can't wait to see them and share it with you! I'm really glad to be getting back into it. I'm hoping to do a beauty editorial at least once a month for Makeup Junkie which will feature the latest beauty trends. This beauty story will be featuring the bright hues of Spring from natural to edgy. Stay tuned!

This Wednesday, February 23rd, I will be attending a beauty event at the newest Sephora store on Bloor in Toronto! I'm ecstatic!!!! I salivate every time I step into Sephora haha. I will have the chance to mingle, munch on appetizers, sip champagne, and do some serious shopping compliments of Sephora! Oh what to get??! Any ideas for must-haves? I haven't bought anything from Sephora since Christmas! That's a long time for me! I remember my first trip to NYC back in 2001 was when I first fell in love with Sephora. I'm just happy Sephora made its way to Canada! Any other beauty bloggers in Toronto coming out for the event? Would love to meet up! Anyways, stay tuned for my pics, reviews, and buys!

February 24th is another beauty event with celebrity makeup artist Scott Patric (Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, Madonna). I honestly have never heard of him and I googled him and still couldn't find any info. Has anyone else heard of him? Well, he'll be showing us how to achieve a perfect face and smile in 5- 10 mins. And we'll also be the first to try a new product by Listerine and apparently it's not mouthwash? Anyways, I'm kind of intrigued and hopefully it'll be worth the trip out!

The last news I'm kind of apprehensive about but still excited. I will be getting a complimentary cut, style, and colour from Vidal Sassoon some time next week. The whole event will be featured on my site including expert styling tips. Vidal Sassoon is known for introducing the world to the classic bob as an asymmetric five-point hairstyle and for giving really trendy, cutting-edge hairstyles. Well, this season they want to Stretch into Spring with a modern interpretation featuring bold fringes, sharp head-hugging layers and refined sleek cuts. Stylists will combine the state-of-the-art GeoFlux (??) cutting technique with the advanced GeoTone colour application (??). I'm really glad I'll be getting a consultation first. I've always admired girls that could carry off these trendy looks and I'm not sure if I can carry it off. Hopefully they'll be able to create a trendy style that looks like me. I'm getting nervous thinking about it!! Ok, it's just hair right? It'll grow back...

Can't wait to share all the new things with you! What's new and exciting in your life?

I was offered a cut and style too. Too bad they didn't bother to do enough research to find out that I have no hair to cut nor style.

Brave, Sister. Brave. I'd be so nervous to let anyone try something drastic on my hair. But, I'm sure they'll do an amazing job.

Make-up Junkie said...

haha thanks! I am nervous!!! But I've been wanting and needing a new style. I just hope it won't be so drastic that I'll be wishing for my old style back!

hey...lucky you, you get to go to Sephora Bloor St.'s opening.
are you going to the Vidal Sassoon on Avenue Road? i get my hair cut there. i always have "Ni" cut my hair -- she's a perfectionist! I heard Christine is a wonderful colorist, but i haven't had anything done with her yet. maybe i should. my gray hairs are showing.

Thanks Critty and Kam! I can't wait to share my experience with you as well!

Hey Jen!
I know, it was totally unexpected but I'm not one to turn down free shopping! Yes, I'm getting my hair done on Avenue rd. My grays are totally showing too! That's what babies do to you! lol I've been to Vidal but it was yrs ago. I forgot who cut my hair though. I got my hair coloured and it was ok. We'll have to see!

I can't wait to see how your hair turns out - I was offered the chance too but I don't cut my hair! I would have jumped on the chance otherwise!
