Last week I attended Meet the Masters of Trend Masterclass at the Napoleon Perdis concept store and makeup academy in Hollywood. We learned, listened and watched, and the giftbags, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, only added to the amazing evening.
Special guest Emily Dougherty, Beauty & Fitness Director of ELLE Magazine, shared with us this season’s hottest runway beauty trends and spilled some ‘behind the curtain’ beauty gossip. Art Pop (brightly colored makeup), Natural, White Lines and Flaming Lips (orange lips) are being seen on the 2014 runway, and Emily showed us photos on bringing the runway look to real life.
Napoleon Perdis demonstrated 2 of the runway trend looks – natural and flaming orange lips – on beautiful models. He worked very quickly, but efficiently, and watching him with a brush was awe-inspiring. It was definitely a treat to watch him work, as I am a big NP fan. It’s always interesting to see someone apply makeup so quickly, but also precisely with no or almost no mistakes.

As for the giftbag? I received 3 lipglosses, an issue of Elle, NP Set Skincare, and hair products from Blo Blow Dry Bar. I also purchased China Doll Eyeliner in Yang and Auto Pilot BBB Cream. I tried it on my hand and it was too fantastic not to buy.
Here’s my Instagram photo, but I’ll be showcasing these goodies on future blog posts:
