Come meet Christian this Saturday, October 25
Bay Area babes and dudes and out-of-towners visiting the area, you’re in for a treat. Dolce & Gabbana’s National Makeup Artist, the fabulous Christian McCulloch, will be visiting Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco’s Union Square on Saturday, October 25, and he’ll be doing makeovers!
Christian has worked his magic on some of Hollywood’s hottest ladies, including Scarlett Johannsson, Christina Hendricks and Olivia Wilde. More importantly, he complimented me once on my brows. 🙂
Christian will be at the Dolce & Gabbana counter inside Saks from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. He’ll be there to introduce and answer questions about the new fall collection and fall’s latest looks. Based on the one time I met him, I think you’ll have a blast and could learn a lot (he’s kind of a ham!).
Call (415) 438-5225 to book an appointment for a makeover with Christian while he’s in town. No minimum purchase necessary, and it’s free to attend.
Speaking of Christian and fall and Dolce & Gabbana, I asked him a few questions by email recently, and here’s what he had to say about trends for fall…
QUESTION: So which beauty trends are you most excited about this fall?
ANSWER: Fall 2014 is all about warm, natural looks softly illuminated by iridescent tones. I love this ethereal, yet bold look because it transitions wonderfully from day to night. This modern take on a natural look is created with a clean lid and a strong, bold brow.
Illuminate the eyes with soft, nude shades — I’m loving Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Intense Cream Eye Colors in Nude and Gold Dust ($36 each).
Then for lips, try a nice honey or plum.
For night, and this is optional, add a thin black liner to your lids close to the lashes.
QUESTION: What are three makeup products from the new fall collection that every woman should have?
ANSWER: The Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Intense Cream Eye Colors! They come in 14 shades and eight are matte — which is different and unique for a cream shadow. I like that they deliver a smooth, velvety finish without shimmer.
Next, a foundation, Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Reveal Lift Foundation ($72). The consistency of that foundation is absolute perfection. It blends out nicely for natural, sheer coverage. Skin glows effortlessly afterwards! Plus, it has the added bonus of SPF 25.
Then for nails, Dolce & Gabbana Intense Nail Color in Fiamma ($25) is the perfect rich blood red for fall.
QUESTION: Do you have any advice for aspiring makeup artists?
ANSWER: Practice, practice, practice! Assist, assist assist! Makeup is a collaborative experience. It’s fun, artistic and creative!
