Yesterday, I finally met François Nars at the Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself Book Signing Event at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue!

Although this was my second time meeting François (I first met him at the NARS Loves Chicago Event back in 2009), I was SO nervous I was shaking the WHOLE time! And once again, François was super nice and friendly and we chitchatted for a bit =)

Below are some pictures from the event:

Besides meeting François – which was no doubt the BIGGEST highlight of the day – I also ran into a reader of Makeup For Life (nice meeting you Steph!) and got a makeover done by NARS National Artist Austin Mark. Stay tuned for pictures of my haul and a breakdown of my look!

  1. Wow. Seriously, that is an incredibly opportunity to have. You must have felt like you were on the moon that day.

    Btw, I really look forward to all of your makeup tutorials. You are incredibly good with putting on makeup. Have you considered posting up videos on youtube of your makeup tutorials? You would get so much viewers and subscribers since you are so pretty and the looks that you do are actually wearable in real life.
