It seems like the summer just started, and here I am planning my fall wardrobe. I simply can’t believe it! The fact that the kids have gone back to school, and the post DC august vacation traffic, however are clear indicators. I missed FNO this year because of a board meeting that evening, and it was just too much to go back to Georgetown from U St. I did however participate in Nordstrom’s Cosmetic Event on September 7th. I chose the YSL counter. The purpose of the evening was to show you how to take some of your summer colors and incorporate them with some warmer colors to allow a lot of your makeup to transition into the fall season. Very informational! I even learned how to shade my cheek bones. My favorite from YSL cosmetics is their lipsticks, specifically the Rouge Volupte. If you don’t know, it’s like silk for the lips! It’s so very creamy, it’s literally heaven in a tube! Plus it comes in a very fancy tubing. At $34 a tube, it’s a definite splurge for some (if not most) of us, but it’s sooo worth it!
