Nars new flagship at 413 Bleecker Street.
On Friday, before the IMATS madness, the beautiful and bubbly GlowyJoeyBunny
, who writes for PinkSith.com
, and I reunited for a day of fun and beauty. First, we stopped at Rescue Beauty Lounge
and got our nailz did. We gabbed with owner and founder, Ji Baek, who is not only smart, beautiful and fashionable... but also insanely funny
. I'm saving that portion of our day for another post so stay tuned for that one.
Post Rescue, we went to have lunch at The Spotted Pig.
They should either rename it The Stuffed Pig, because it's full of itself, or The Spotted Snail, because of the service. It took us 1.5 hours to get 1 egg and toasts essentially (though they were both delicious... see below).
We abandoned our never-arriving lunch for our makeovers at NARS. I was excited to check out the new flagship on Bleecker Street. It's great to see more beauty on this block, among the multiplying Marc Jacobs stores and Magnolia cupcakes.
Check out JoeyBunny's awesome NARS tote.
I know it's her monocur but don't you think we're both glowy here? hehe
Makeup on JoeyBunny:
She wanted to go for a fun summery look to combat the grey-ish weather we were having on Friday. Cindy, JoeyBun's artist, went for bronzy cheeks and bright lips.
Copacabana The Multiple on browbone, Nepal Single Eyeshadow on lids, Sophia in the crease to the orbital bone, lower lashline. Coconut Grove in the outer V to deepen. Bali on eyebrows.
Laguna bronzer and Madly blush for cheeks.
Jungle Red lip liner, Schiap lipstick, Easy Lover gloss.
Makeup on Robin:
I wasn't specific on my look but just wanted to try some of the new products from the Spring collection that I hadn't tried yet. Kara, my artist, created a light smoky neutral eye with a colorful lip, but kept the overall look soft and approachable.
Punjab Sheer Glow foundation mixed with The Brightening Serum (which I love).
All three shades in the new trio, Calanque, were used on my eye look. Zardoz cream eyeshadow to line the eye, and Bali Single Eyeshadow on the brows.
Maldvies The Multiple to highlight. Madly blush.
Marnie lipliner, Baroque Gloss Pencil.
Louboutin, always a pleasure.
Outside The Spotted Pig.
Spring is here at The Spotted Pig. Our food is not.
Chicken liver toast.
