Ahh…I love beauty events! I can’t help but to check Nordstrom’s event schedule on a regular basis to see what kind of spectacular events are coming up. In fact, because I went out to the Smashbox event last weekend I had to keep myself from going to the Nars event they had this past weekend featuring their celeb makeup artist Uzo…sob…
In any event, Smashbox periodically has these wonderful events where for a $75 reservation fee applicable to your product purchase, you are able to attend the event have your full makeup done (45 minute session), and be whizzed off to a mini photo session with Smashbox’s own fashion and editoral photographer Steven Khan. In addition, you are given ALL of the photos on a CD for your own personal use. Now that’s a super deal! For those of you familiar with professional photography, obtaining the actual digital copies of your photos can get pretty pricey.
I actually planned far in advance for this event when I realized that I missed this amazing opportunity to have my photos done by Steven at the Birchbox and Smashbox event back in September. After the Birchbox party, photos that Steven took at the event were floating around on twitter and blogs and I sulked around sad that I missed this opportunity. I took it upon myself to contact the Smashbox counter and asked when he’d be shooting again and when I found out I booked immediately. What was even better was my best friend and I were able to have a nice photo taken of us together.
As well, with the holidays around Smashbox had discounted their holiday sets for this event so there were some pretty amazing deals going on that day.
I walked away with over 100 images, however, there were only a handful that came out really well. Here are the photos from the event. Enjoy!
