Okay, no loud music and pupus (Hawaii’s version of hors d’ oeuvres, small portion of food served before a meal) but you read it right- it’s a Girlfriend Party!

Hosted by Nordstrom Hawaii thru one of its cosmetics vendors, Bare Escentuals, the concept behind is to book an appointment with a Makeup Artist for a party of three and get a full-hour makeup lesson, product updates, hands-on basic makeup how-tos, and a complimentary starter makeup kit.  All for free. Fun and fabulous!

A personal user of Bare Escentual’s bareMinerals and Buxom lines, I replied to an invitation so I can cover this event and find out what new products are worth- trying.

Celebrating its 35th anniversary in the beauty market, expect Bare Escentuals to bring you brighter and bolder color collection. “Bare Escentuals is expanding to include high intensity colors, those that like heavy pigments”, explains Leighanne Evans, Counter Manager for Bare Escentuals/Norsdstrom Hawaii.

Leighanne Evans
Counter Manager, Bare Escentuals, Nordstrom Hawaii

Relatively new in the islands, I chatted with the new Counter Manager of Bare Escentuals located inside Nordstrom Hawaii. 

When and how did you learn applying makeup? “In middle school, I learned about stage makeup”

How did you get into the cosmetics industry? ” I started working in Ulta when I was still in Texas. Then when we moved to Oahu in November 2010, I got interviewed in Nordstrom. I started as rover and got promoted in May when they needed a Counter Manager for Bare Escentuals”.

“What are your top 3 must-haves from Bare Escentuals? “Tough question, but that would be Pure Radiance (translucent mineral powder), Pretty Amazing Lipcolor (hot pink shade), Well Rested for Eyes (under-eye brightening that reduces look of tired eyes).

“What do you do when not working? “I have two dogs, I spend time with them and my husband. I go to the beach. We like going to Kailua and Bellows”.

“Any makeup tips you’d like to share? “ I apply bronzer to contour my face. I think people  have a notion that bronzer is meant to color the face. I use it mainly for contouring. You apply it like the number 3. In one sweeping motion, start with temple, along the cheekbone, then along the jaw line.

“What else should people know about Bare Escentuals?” bareMinerals is no longer about neutral and conservative colors. We have new products that can transform you from day to night- from nude to bold.

Look for Leighanne and her radiant smile at the counter.
