I mentioned in the most recent Fabulous Links that Blushington on the Upper East Side had free makeup applications last Wednesday.* They also had trunk shows for Kelly Rutherford’s new jewelry line and a cool workout wear store called Bandier. Of course, I had to be there.
First, the makeup by Neah. Remember her? Neah prepped my skin using Erborian’s Pink Perfect 4-in-1 Primer followed by Erborian CC Cream. Then she used Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer and Celestial Bronzing Veil from Kevyn Aucoin in Tropical Days. She also used the Bronzing Veil as eye shadow. Browns make blue eyes pop! Neah used Kevyn Aucoin The Essential Mascara to define my lashes.
To give my cheeks a rosy glow, Neah dabbed on Stila Aqua Glow Water Color Blush in Rosewater. She completed the look with The Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil topped with Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Nude. Check out the finished gorgeous:
Kelly Rutherford’s jewelry line was beautiful. Very simple and elegant. She has matching necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in yellow gold. I love the hearts. I’m a romantic that way. (Sorry for the picture quality. I’m still mastering my new camera.)
And yes, I had the chance to meet Kelly. She was lovely! She told me that in a few weeks, her jewelry will be available at a store called Broken English. She also mentioned she might like to do some rings and pieces in rose gold. I’d be down with a heart necklace in rose gold.
I also think the pieces are perfect for monogramming. The jewelry is priced between about $50 to about $450.
And check out the workout wear available at Bandier. What I love about Bandier is that they have lesser known brands as well as some more mainstream ones. Here are two cute patterned leggings that caught my attention. This is the Ultra Silk Bloom Print Legging by Ultracor, available here. It has a matching top, available here.
Below is the Ditsy Yoga Pant, from an Australian brand called The Upside. You can pick it up here. It has a matching top, too, available here.

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!

*I did not pay for the makeover. Blushington offered free makeup applications all day to celebrate the Kelly Rutherford and Bandier trunk show.
