What do you do on a rainy Thursday night in NYC? Why not spend that time learning how to get back to beauty basics with the amazing Sam Fine, celebrity makeup artist whose clients include Jennifer Hudson, Tyra Banks, Iman, Patty Labelle, just to name a few. On this rainy evening, several Bloggers gathered with Mr. Fine at the now impressive Duane Reade in Herald Square to discuss his favorite beauty products.
As more Bloggers joined the festivities, Sam further discussed his must have beauty products and took us on a tour of Duane Reade’s New Look Beauty Department while sharing secrets and bestowing wisdom such as
1. “keep Bronzer on the outer perimeter of your face for a more natural look otherwise you will just look burnt”
4. add gloss over lipstick for dimension and shine
He also showed us some key products that are a must in our makeup bag
as well as answered our numerous questions about products, application and beauty rules (note: Sam Fine DOES NOT like beauty rules)
So basically ladies, try and try and try beauty products, return what doesn’t work (don’t be afraid to return products) and keep what does – you may be surprised by what products you fall in love with.
