Scene: Wakeup Your Makeup with Glossed and Found at Neiman Marcus

My fun-filled weekend took off with a shopping trip on Friday that, among other things, brought home heeled sandals and a classic blazer. On Saturday morning, my friend Azeezat and I visited Neiman Marcus at the early hour of 8 AM for Glossed and Found's event, Wakeup Your Makeup. The event celebrated the launch of the brand new cosmetics shop and featured a high-fashion beauty trend show. And because of the early hour, guests were treated to mimosas, a coffee and tea bar, and endless breakfast bites. When we arrived, we checked in, received our swag bags, and were greeted by my friend, the ever cute Graham Kostic, G&F's creative + editorial director. We snapped up some refreshments and between that and finding our seats, ran into several of my friends from the city and undergrad. The beauty trend show took off after greetings from Graham and Chuck Steelman, the corporate PR for Neiman Marcus. Each of the eighteen beauty brands in the cosmetic shop were talked about and a model wearing and holding  beauty products walked the runway. Throughout, prizes were given away including gift baskets filled with goodies and gift cards redeemable for the day. When the show ended, we were released to peruse the shop, receive makeovers and facials, have our lip print read, get our photos taken, and just have an all-around beautiful time.
