Nordstrom Beauty Trend Event: Spring/Summer 2015

Nordstrom Beauty Trend Event: Spring/Summer 2015

Twice a year, Nordstrom rolls out the red carpet and hosts its seasonal Beauty Trend Event. For the first time, Ottawa’s first floor cosmetics department will be welcoming clients to spend some exciting one-on-one time with beauty experts and industry insiders for the latest spring beauty tips and tricks, along with complimentary make-up, skincare and fragrance consultations.

I stopped by Nordstrom to get a preview of the event and here’s what you need to know.

What You Can Expect: It’s all about Spring trends made simple. Whether you’re looking to tackle the latest make-up trend of face contouring or looking for a new shade of lipstick to pair with your wardrobe this season, you won’t want to miss out. Unlike the store opening ‘Beauty Bash’, the event will allow for full consultations and the opportunity to dash from one counter to the next for the full experience.

beautyTrendEvent2What You Should Plan For: Be prepared to test the best that each cosmetics line has to offer. If you've always been interested in trying La Mer skincare - well now is your chance to get first-hand knowledge of the line and go home with samples to try. You should plan ahead and book an appointment to ensure that you get top pick and won’t have to wait in line so your visit will be smooth sailing. I recommend booking a time with your favourite cosmetics line, skincare line and be sure to leave some time to stop by the Jo Malone counter to try out the latest fragrances. I can't get enough of the English Pear & Freesia perfume I went home with.

How To Prepare: Show up fresh faced so you can get a skin consultation and a mini-facial and then receive a full make-up application. Polish change-ups will be on offer as well, so come with a bare manicure if you’re interested in trying out some new polish colours.

You can get a backstage pass to Spring must-haves with Nordstrom's Beauty & Fragrance experts on Friday, May 8th and Saturday, May 9th from 10am - 7pm at the Rideau Centre.

To schedule an appointment, customers can stop by any beauty counter or call 613.567.7005 ext. 1429
