Fellow Bostonians – if you’re free the evening of Thursday 8/15, please consider joining me at the Prudential Mall Ann Taylor! I’m excited to be hosting a night of fashion and beauty in collaboration with Birchbox. There will be mini-makeovers, gifts, plus cocktails and treats.
Prior to the event, the Ann Taylor x Birchbox team asked me to stop by and try on AT’s latest collection and experiment with some beauty favorites…
First stop was at the Escape Aveda Boston salon, where the Birchbox team had sent a package of their top user-rated products. This was their “Daytime Chic” look, which consisted of clean, fresh skin, light lip gloss, and defined lashes.
One happy discovery from the makeup session was Benefit’s they’re real mascara. My lashes have gotten more and more sparse over the years, but a few light coats of this added noticeable length and thickness.
For hair, I simply asked for volume at the crown and a low, messy bun. My sweet makeup artist turned out to be quite handy with a teasing brush.
I was thrilled to discover that my local AT stores started carrying extended petite sizing again. Even though the items may still need some tailoring, it’s great to be able to try on pieces without waiting and paying for shipping. Now if only we could get a bigger selection, and some extended shoe sizes too! For anyone interested in the items in my final outfit, I have a more detailed review coming this weekend.
