I mean, that post title pretty much says it all, right? (It would have to, because it’s long as hell.) The short version is: I splurged on makeup and a skirt this weekend; part of the makeup splurging involved going to Clinique for a consultation and some freebies; the MUA, Annie, was THE BOMB.COM; and I ended up getting most of what she used on me. Plus, she broke a lot of application stuff down for me, in a way that I found very easy to follow, and I think I finally have a handle on tightlining! Love! So, if you’re ever in the Durham/Triangle area and looking for a great Clinique artist, I *highly* recommend you stop by the Southpoint Belk Clinique and ask for Annie. (I’m not sure it’d be kosher to blast her last name on here – but if you’re thinking about hitting her up, email me and I can give it to you. Pretty sure she’s the only Annie there, though.) She’s also their bridal specialist.
Um, yeah. I fucking LOVE this look.
