I have to write this feature very quickly because I have a friend coming by to go to lunch in just a few minutes. I will probably come back and embellish the post a bit later. In the meantime, let me give you my first impression: the synergy of these shades will surprise and delight you. The top two, brown and silver don't seem like natural partners, do they? You must see them blended to believe.
I must tell you more about my makeup application. Erin applied individual lashes to enhance my own, and everywhere I've gone since I left her hands, I've received compliments - all from makeup artists. She is a master at applying individual lashes to glam your look in no time. No wonder celebrities love her.
Living proof? I ambled around Neiman Marcus before I went over to Saks to pick up Chanel's spring collection. I couldn't believe the compliments. It has been years - I'm sure, years - since makeup artists I don't know stopped me as I walked by and commented on my eyes. First, all my friends at Neiman Marcus were awestruck by Erin's work. then, I was cruising around Saks with Loyd, who had already said he wanted eyelash lessons from Erin, when the Laura Metier artist said as we walked by, "Your eyes are stunning." I turned around, and he was talking to me. Wow! Later at lunch, my friend noticed. It was a head-turning day. All thanks to Erin Lockard. Shadows by Le Métier de Beauté
