Estée Lauder Fashion’s Night Out

Estee Lauder Fashions Night Out Into The Gloss

Well, the party's over but IT. WAS. AMAZING. I knew that Tom would be doing my makeup but I didn't know that he'd be giving me "Hilary Rhoda-meets-Brooke Shields" eyebrows. Or that I'd meet so many cool ITG readers, like Tessa from Australia who might just be my next intern, and Lauren Zaremba, the Twitter contest winner who spent a good forty-five minutes in Tom's chair and left with a killer metallic eye. Here's a little peek at our event last night!

Some highlights not caught on camera:

-Hilary and I being interrupted mid-conversation by a male admirer (of hers, duh) with a rose and love letter.

-Tom explaining that the best way to do a "smokey eye" on me is by not "closing in" the outer corners. Leave a bit of space for a more wide-eyed look. And here I've been giving the inner corners all of (or rather, none of) the love.

-The Lauder makeup artists' tiny "video pins" playing Derek Lam's Fall/Winter 2011 runway show and behind the scenes. Like little flat screens over their hearts...very cool.

-Me leaving in a took me eight years of living in New York and three FNOs to figure out that it's the only way to travel during crazy traffic.

I don’t know where you’ll be on September 8th, but if the answer is New York City then you should be thrilled to hear that Tom Pecheux (aka the sexiest makeup artist alive) and I will be hosting Estée Lauder’s Fashion’s Night Out festivities at Saks!

Remember when you went to a department store makeup counter to get ready for prom? This will be the dreamy version of that. Mr. Pecheux and his team of international artists are creating four “front row”-worthy looks to choose from, and all you need to do is RSVP, show up, mingle (we’re fun), and get dolled up for the big night—whatever the rest of your evening entails. And, as if you weren’t already mapping out the quickest route to 611 Fifth Avenue, get this: one lucky ITG reader will win a personal session with the legend himself! Tweet @IntoTheGloss and @EstéeLauder with the hashtag #EstéeLauderFNO between now and September 6th for your shot at a tête à tête with Tom.

See you there!

      Im almost 50, decided im throwing out mom's voice in my head. Since I was thirty, she said I was too young to wear Youth Dew, it was for older woman. I'v always loved it. This Christmas it's on my wish list to her and to Santa.

    I just found your blog and it was love at first sight. Your dress immediatly caught my attention. It's Carven, but new or old collection? It's very flattering, both the cut and the colour.

    Next year I will be living in Washington DC, hope I can make it to the NY fashion week as I will be arriving in late August/early September. Very excited.

    Guess I will now a thrilling new hobby to explore during my dissertation breaks!
