a day with le metier de beaute

the lovely and talented meg of mimi + meg and i had the opportunity to experience the full on pretty of le metier de beaute recently at neiman marcus. our host was none other than director of makeup for the brand, mikey castillo, who took us on a tour of le metier’s truly luxurious skincare and cosmetics before treating us each to a spin in his chair for a full makeover.

mikey used this shadow-based champagne pencil on my water line to reduce redness. he then turned a shadow brush upside down to pat and blend a deep blue shadow called teal tweed from the limited edition (and sadly no longer available) oscar de la renta ready to wear kaleidoscope and stuffed liquid liner onto the lash line which really made my eyes pop. to brighten and highlight my cheeks, mikey used the flawless face kit (above) and my lips were done using the red chiffon lip creme lip gloss from the oscar palette and topped with lip creme lip gloss cafe creme.
