I was asked to co-host the upcoming Fall Couture Cosmetics Gala at The Bay, Rideau Centre. As you know, I love to shop. And I love make-up! A make-up gala event? OF COURSE! How could I say anything but YES?
As the co-host for the event, I will be the Estee Lauder spokesperson. I was given some amazing new products to try, and I have to say, I fell in love with the new lop gloss and night cream. At the gala, I will be wearing make-up from the new Blue Dahlia line, which is absolutely beautiful (pictured above). I usually go with a smoky eye look, but I'm excited to venture into the blues. The new colours for fall can also be worn year-round, and the new line is stunning!
Tom Pecheux, world renowned make-up artist, is now the Creative Makeup Director for Estee Lauder, bringing a twist to the usually traditional makeup line. He says "It's a great privilege to work with the Estee Lauder brand. We are both dedicated to making women look and feel beautiful." The best part about Estee Lauder, besides their amazing make-up and skin care products, is their commitment to helping the fight against breast cancer.
Proceeds from the gala will be going go to a very deserving charity—to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. So far, The Bay has raised $1.3 million for the Canadian Women's Fund.
At the gala, you'll be able to get a makeover at any of cosmetics counters, receive samples, and possibly win one of many fabulous gift prizes! Once your make-up is done, you'll be treated to a photo shoot with professional photographer, Joel Bedford. Best picture of the day wins a prize, too!
Tickets are $10. $2 goes to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and $8 goes back to YOU to be used towards the purchase of any make-up or facial product that night.
If you're in Ottawa, I would love to see you this Thursday! If you like last-minute trips, then you should come as well!
I look forward to seeing you all!
