Obsessed with makeup? I know- we are too! Friday was another adventuresome day for Sadie & Blair. We walked into one of our favorite stores that day (Nordstrom of course) and was immediately approached by a makeup artist.

Nars had a promotion going on and if you spent a "certain" amount- you get a special gift. With makeup, it's so easy to hit that "certain" amount. Makeup is so expensive! Okay okay let us correct ourselves, Nars makeup is expensive. But with good reason!

2:00 rolled around and we both hopped into our chairs. We worked with makeup artists Hank and Suzy. Hank has worked with A-list celebrities and has traveled all around the world. Suzy on the other hand is a makeup artist by day and fashion designer by night. We were lucky enough to see one of her designs that she had on hand that day. They are both so much fun and very informative.

Suzy helped us with what type of makeup we wanted for our big days. (We're both engaged). She helped us with color, skin preparation, and how easy it is to create that J-Lo glow, which is what we were looking for.

Take a look below at some of our most favorite purchases.

Nars Alhambra Duo Eye Shadow

This is a perfect combination eye shadow! We both don't usually wear eyeshadow but we bought this because it's natural with a bit of shimmer for that glowing look. It can easily be applied over a primer and can be worn in the day as well as the evening for a sexy sultry look.

Nars Wide Angle Brush #16

This is the PERFECT brush to apply eyeshadow. It sweeps, blends, and applies very well. There's so many different types of brushes but this one does the trick!

Nars Laguna Bronzer

Want that sun-kissed look? Well this will do it! Bronzer is great! You can brush this along your jawline, the bridge of your nose, forehead, and even the apples of your cheeks. Bronzer can re-shape and create some depth in areas of your face. Suzy mentioned you can even use this in the crease of your lids to get more depth instead of using a darker shadow. Bronzer is very easy to apply and you don't need to sit in the sun for the entire day to get a nice tan. This does it for you!

Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm

This is our favorite purchase! This illuminator helped create that sun-kissed glow that we wanted. Also easy to apply. Using your ring finger, dab and move your finger starting at the apples of your cheeks and go up to the side of your eyes. That easy!

Makeup can be lots of fun! You never want it to be overwhelming. It's always important to know how to apply it correctly and NOT to over do it. We suggest going to the Nars counter at Nordstrom Valley Fair to schedule an appointment with Suzy and Hank. They are FAB-U-LOUS and they will take care of you like they took care of us!
