Nordstrom Regional Beauty Director for the South Gilbert Vera did an amazing job hosting the show. A true beauty expert with 15 years of experience, Gilbert led us through the top 3 trends of the season: New Neutrals, The Right Bright Lip, and Sculpting Made Simple.
Pretty much every big beauty brand that Nordstrom carries was mentioned on the runway, but a few brands in particular had some innovative new products that I think people need to know about! If you were to buy only 3 new products this season, here's what you need:
1. Clarisonic (shop here)
You can't have a beauty event without talking about the Clarisonic, which some people are skeptical about using until they've tried it. The Clarisonic rep said, "Everyone with skin needs a Clarisonic!" I think she meant to say everyone needs a Clarisonic, but nevertheless I totally agree with her and loved that comment. She highlighted the new Smart Profile Clarisonic, but I think any Clarisonic is great.
2. Dior Lip and Cheek Glow (shop here)
Normally I wouldn't splurge on a single product, but this one has more than one use and gives you a customized glow because it works with your skin's unique pH.
3. Yves Saint Laurent Couture Variation 10-Color Eye Palette (shop neutral "Nu" set here and purple "Tuxedo" set here)
Everyone needs an all-in-one eye shadow palette for easy and beautiful eyes. Both the Nu and Tuxedo sets have great essential colors, so if you're picking one it just depends on your style.
