Inside the Fall Beauty Trends show at Nordstrom Montgomery Mall

The Fall Beauty Trend Show took place this weekend at Nordstrom Montgomery Mall. More than 150 ladies got up early for the annual show to learn about the latest trends, get makeovers from national brand artists and win free stuff. The Fall Beauty Trend Show happens at select Nordstrom stores across the country and is three hours of beautymania.

After the runway show is over, guests can visit the beauty department and get advice and makeovers from national makeup artists. I b-lined it over to NARS to get my eyes done. I was getting tired of my regulars, MAC, Urban Decay and L’Oreal and wanted something different. I love that pewter color that many of the Rea; Housewives of Orange County wear in their interviews so the artist hooked me up with NARS’ Dual Intensity in “Dione”. First she used NARS Velvet Shadow Stick in “Goddess” all over my lid and brow. She said I could wear it alone or as an eye primer. I loved it so I bought it. Next she applied Dione on my lid. She used “Portobello 1” in my crease and blended it through. Portobello is a matte and comes in a duo. It is a mushroomy beige and I have so many colors like that so I didn’t buy it. She finished off my look with black eyeliner and NARS lengthening mascara.
