I was really excited to go to this event, created and hosted by beauty and lifestyle blogger Lianne Farbes of The Makeup Girl.  Cocktails & Couture brings together some amazing bloggers, fashionistas, PR gurus, photographers and brands.  Some of these brands include Lierac, Proactiv, Aveeno, Clairsonic, tarte cosmetics, Hpnotiq, Atopalm and PopChips.   I loved the idea that this event was held at the Caravan Stylist Studio in Midtown Manhattan.  The place was packed, vibes were flowing and I was able to meet some amazing people!

Including Ms. Lianne Farbes…

The DJ!

The candy bar!

And my hair for the night!  I pulled a twistout into a low bun.

And again I did a bold lip and kept the rest of the face neutral.  This time I’m wearing Smashbox’s Be Legendary Black Plum.  Review on this one as well soon!

I’ll definitely go to this again next time!
