Lancôme video with Make-up Artist Tarek Abbas

As I mentioned last week (post here), I had my makeup done at Neiman Marcus Boston by Lancôme's national makeup artist, Tarek Abbas. I'm a makeup and product junky so this was great fun for me. But unlike other makeovers, they did a video so I have a better chance at recreating the look.  Here are some of the fab products they used on me.

Nectar lace blush palette I bought this blush and it's fab. I love how it has the darker shade for contouring and the lighter shade to give a little highlight.

Bronze amour eye palette I also bought this because I just love the way my eyes came out.

On the lips, they used this pale petal lipstick and sheer natural lip liner. I learned a few tricks during the makeover but my favorite was what they said about the lips. My lips have lots of color on their own so they used the miracle retouch pen to go over the color of my lips so the color of the lipstick would really show.

They also lotioned and potioned me up before doing the makeup but I just bought new moisturizers so I didn't buy any of the skincare. I do have a bunch of samples to try so next time I'm in need, I may try out the Lancôme Absolue products.

And here is the end result!
