A Little Treat ~

I have been busy with chores here at Rose Arbors, mainly in the garden, but last week I decided to take some time and give myself a little treat. So when I found out that the Chanel makeup artist was coming to Nordstroms I signed up for a consultation and a make-over.
 

 
It was nice to sit and be pampered, I liked just about everything she used...especially the foundation,  power blush and the lipstick; I came home with the foundation, I don't use foundation on a daily basis, it isn't needed at the gym or in the garden,but there are those times when I want to look a bit more polished: a little goes a long way, plus it doesn't have a heavy feel and she matched my skin tone perfectly.

 
 
And now I want to tell you about another product
 
This isn't Chanel and there is a whopping difference between the price of this nail polish by Covergirl in it's look-a-like Chanel bottle, and Chanel nail polish. It was part of a give away when I bought some mascara and much to my surprise it is excellent, which I didn't expect at the price. It comes in great colors and really does last. If you wear nail polish you might want to give this a try and at only $5.00 a bottle you can splurge.
 
 
Here I am after my make-over I thought I would take a photo and share it with you. Miss Twiggley hardly recognized me!
 
 
If you haven't tried a cosmetic/skin care consultation lately you really should...it was a fun little treat.
 
Thank you for visiting

    The make up looks great but there is a healthy radiance underneath!
