This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Trend Show Frenzy

September, 18, 2015

If you aren’t bright-eyed in Bellevue, you will be – bright and early – if you attend Nordstrom’s Trend Show this Saturday, September 19th. Here are details for you beauty-loving babes.

There will be celebrity makeup artists, red carpet regulars, cosmetics tips, music, giveaways, and makeovers. For a preview of who you can get excited to see, this is Darais. He is Lancôme’s National Artist and regularly does up celebrities.

In preparation for Saturday’s cosmetics craze, I’m sharing one of Darais’ secrets to perfect-looking brows. In reality, no one is perfect, but that doesn’t mean a girl can’t use a little makeup magic to polish her look. I have one brow section that is lighter than the rest. Last time I saw Darais, he taught me to even it out by filling it in with an eyeliner pencil that is darker than my natural color before using my eyebrow pencil. Darais is scheduled to be in the Seattle area again this Saturday dispensing personal tips, as usual, to every lucky girl who stops by!
