What is your FAVORITE thing to do in Las Vegas?
I asked this question on my Facebook page The Olive Brunette, but I’m interested to know your thoughts here.
Can’t wait to read your answers below.
The Las Vegas Beauty Bash
This years Summer Beauty Bash was super fancy-schmancy and FUN.
So many incredible artists and business owners.
Beauty Bash was held at the Miracle Mile Shops and featured the first look at Fall fashion and beauty trends. There were complimentary demos, services and makeovers performed by participating in beauty and health shops.
My favorites include Basin White, MAC, NYX Professional Makeup, Drybar, Sephora, and The Body Shop.
This event was a HIT
I had so much fun talking to all of the different companies and employees. When I first arrived I was immediately seated in the MAC chair for a makeover. I’ll be honest, I DO NOT like getting my makeup done. I’m super fidgety, impatient and honestly never really like how my face turns out.
Anyone else feel the same?
Either I leave feeling super cakey, or they take the whole “natural” suggestion I give really seriously and barely put any products on my skin.
THIS TIME I left with a huge smile on my face thanks to David Day over at MAC. I was glowing to the god’s thanks to his makeup wizardry. #flawless
I also made my way over to Drybar to get my hair done and WOW their products smell UH-Maze-ING. No Joke. I probably said “this smells so good” about 18x.
If you follow the Skinny Confidential Him & Her Podcast, you’ll know that Lauryn Evarts and Michael Bosstick (creators of the brand/Podcast) interviewed the founder of the Drybar, Alli Webb. Even if you are not interested in hair/beauty I would definitely give this Podcast a listen because she talks about how she took her passion of blow-drying women’s hair from an at-home service to now having 81 stores in the US. Mega hustler. Alli Webb talks to Lauryn and Michael all about the branding and Marketing behind the Drybar and what went into creating all of the products. I’ve listened to it twice now.
Slightly obsessed with that podcast if you couldn’t tell, but it made me so excited to get a first-hand look at these brands products. Amazing. Really!
The girls working there were so sweet and explained every product and what it does to a T!
Before I left I had to try out the Basin White body scrub and body oils. This product is so genius. The oil comes in the form of a candle and once it has burned through and the candle has melted, you use it on your skin. Smart, right?
My skin was so soft and smelled bomb dot com. It’s a little hard explaining smells…I’m not good with the whole “hints of lemon, citrusy, lavender tones…blah blah blah!” It smells good. That’s all. Try them out!!
If you didn’t get a chance to check out this year’s beauty bash, be sure to check in to their website every now and then for upcoming events.
All stores are located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.
It’s essentially a giant circle so you won’t miss anything.
While you’re there, make sure to check out the indoor rainstorm that takes place every half hour from 10 am to 11 pm Friday through Sunday. It’s FREE (the best price) and is great for all ages.
