Birchbox + Ann Taylor | You’re Invited!

I’m so happy to let the cat out of the bag! Last Monday, I headed over to Ann Taylor for a Daytime Chic makeover with Birchbox. This was the best way I could have celebrated my birthday, well other than a trip to Disneyland, but even then – long lines and crying kids, no bueno. See below for my Birchbox + Ann Taylor experience, plus a special invite for you!

Unless I drench my head in mousse, my hair is FLAT. Birchbox provided us with Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. It adds volume & texturizes without leaving any residue. I also used it before putting my hair in a ponytail for a little oomph and boy, was there oomph!

It’s a rare sight – me without eyeliner & a bright lip. Today called for Daytime Chic and that’s exactly what I got. To achieve this fresh face we used BY TERRY Light-Expert Perfecting Foundation Brush & Nuxe Oil. I was a little freaked out by the Nuxe Oil because why would I need to add more oil to my greasy face? It actually hydrates rough patches and leaves your skin silky smooth.

[Finding the perfect Daytime Chic look with Ann Taylor] My fresh new face was made complete with Benefit’s Fake Up under my eyes to hydrate & conceal and BY TERRY Baume de Rose to plump & smooth my lips. Have you tried either of these two products? It was my first time and won’t be the last!

What to pick?! Too many great Fall options from Ann Taylor and when I saw this, it was love at first sight…Come see my final look while enjoying cocktails, makeovers & free goodies at Ann Taylor, Palo Alto on Thursday, August 15th at 6pm. I can’t wait to meet you! Please be sure to RSVP – details below!

Thank you SO much Birchbox & Ann Taylor (special thanks to the staff at the Palo Alto location) for this amazing experience. Also, hugs & kisses to these amazing ladies – this day would not have been possible without a little help from Ashley Batz Photography and The Glamourist on hair and makeup.
