Hello fashionistas!  I was in Chicago (I KNOW..hahaha, nothing new about that) early last week.  While browsing the makeup counters at Nordstroms  on Michigan Avenue in search of a new foundation, I learned some valuable information I could not wait to share with all of you.  I had read wonderful reviews of the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.  My plan was to be color matched and sent home with a sample to try out for a few days.  Unfortunately there was no specialist at the Armani counter.  The next day I was at the Oak Brook Nordstroms and again the same experience.  It is Nordstroms,  so OF COURSE there are many helpful sales associates but I wanted someone with specific knowledge of the Armani product line. 

I eventually spoke with a manager about my frustrations and she shared with me........amazing news......the Nordstrom makeup department has beauty specialists for who do not work with a specific brand.  The woman who helped me at the Oak Brook store was fabulous.  We spoke for a bit about my skin (dry and sensitive, sporadic redness) as well as my preferred price range.  She then pulled products from Laura Mercier, Chanel and Nars. 

I don't know about you but its been my experience if I go to the Bobbi Brown counter, they always recommend only Bobbi Brown products, same with Nars, Clarins etc...  I have always wondered how do I know what really is the best products/colors for me?

You can meet with a Nordstroms beauty specialist at no charge and receive honest advice on makeup and skincare.  I was fortunate enough to be there on a weekday morning when she had some free time but an appointment is suggested.

To find out what she recommended and what I purchased...you will have to read upcoming posts for the full scoop.
