Fashion Night Out 2011 – Beauty
by Julia Dalton
Ok, yes we know Fashion Night Out is coming at us full speed ahead. But, some of us are more beauty junkies then we are fashion heads and, trust me, there are some seriously fabulous beauty events going on.
The first on my radar has two of my favorites collaborating for one amazing FNO Beauty Extravaganza.
Now, Flavor Paper and Michael Angelo from Wonderland Beauty Parlor have collaborated in the past (scratch and sniff wallpaper anyone?), but they are doing it again and it is going to be FABULOUS! Flavor Paper is making Wonderland over with digital wallpapers based on stunning lipstick photographs taken by Michael Angelo himself. There will be limited edition scratch and sniff stickers, signed “The Lipstick Portraits” merchandise and flavor fabric lip shaped pillows sold to benefit the Somaly Man Foundation. Also, OCC will be there along with House Of Exposure with exclusives! Wonderland Beauty Parlor is a place not to be missed in general, but it is a must in fashion night out.
The next must see stop is Bloomingdales SoHo. Bloomies SoHo has one of the most beautiful cosmetic floors to begin with and they always do something fabulous for FNO. This year, from 6-10, the main floor will be bustling with beauty how to’s, makeup overs, skin consultations, hand massages and fabulous polish changes. There will be a perks at every counter and they have a few really exciting exclusives as well. My fav is for one night only, NARS will have their Space Odyssey collection available at Bloomingdales SoHo. The Odyssey Collection is an amazing silver polish and liner and it is not to be missed.
Next, one of my absolute favorite lines, Le Métier de Beauté, will be hosting the most amazing guest. Oscar de la Renta will be signing his limited-edition LMDB palette in Bergdorf Goodman’s beauty department. Not only is this an amazing beauty event, but to meet Oscar de la Renta is an excitement all in it’s own.
Dior Beauty will be having an event from 6-10 at their 57th St location. Enjoy complimentary makeovers with celeb mua Ricky Wilson and try out the new Velvet eyes reusable eyeliner patches exclusively sold for FNO.
Makeup Forever & Christian Louboutin… Together? The match may seen a bit crazy, but who cares when you can get custom Christian Louboutin lashes from Makeup Forever? Makeup Forever carries some of the greatest lashes out there… I just wonder if they will try and make the bottom of the last red.
These are just a few of the amazing beauty events going on for NYC’s Fashion Night Out this Thursday, September 8th.
