Beauty Tues: A Trip To Saks + a Fab Beauty Giveaway



Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

This week, we are going to chat about my visit to Saks Fifth Avenue of Birmingham–oh, what a fashionista’s wonderland Saks is!

After a live blogging event in Birmingham with B-Metro Magazine, I had some extra time to stop by S5A to see my lovely beauty family! Imagine the VIP and the Saks beauty gals as sisters all living under one roof –talk about  fabulousness 24/7! *wink*

As Kimberly Crawford gave me a tour around the beauty department, we chatted about some of the new makeup looks and trends, skin care, and perfume….Speaking of perfume…as soon as I caught a whiff of  Viktor&Rolf’s BONBON, I fell in love! It was love at first sniff *wink*

This Saks Fifth Avenue exclusive scent has a delectable aroma composed of hints of caramel, orange slices (Oh, now I am craving some old-fashioned orange slices!), and pretty florals. Not only does it smell amazingly delicious, but BONBON also comes in the most adorable bow bottle I have ever seen! Ah! Two magnificent things in one–I am adding this perfume to my wishlist…right now. Please excuse me as I write a letter to my lovely Birthday Fairy…

Dear Birthday Fairy, 

I know my birthday is quite a few months away…but do you think it would be possible for you to come just a tad bit early? Please bring BONBON perfume. If they just so happen to be sold out of BONBON–that’s okay. You can get me a Saks Fifth Avenue gift card. Thanks so much–you’re the best *wink*

Thanks & Hugs,

Abby Hathorn

Beauty Tues: EASY Prom Makeup Tutorial with Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham Beauty Specialist Kimberly Crawford


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

This week on VIP Beauty Tues, I have a fabulous makeup tutorial to share with y’all! So, come on fabulouses, and join me in the beauty seat at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham as makeup specialist Kimberly Crawford gives me the ultimate prom makeover with Trish McEvoy cosmetics.

 I love the Trish McEvoy line because it is great for sensitive skin, and the line has a wide variety of colors and products to fit anyone’s fancy! My mom is a huge fan of the Trish McEvoy Planner because it is a Trapper Keeper for all her makeup needs. She recently invested in the Power of Makeup Planner Collection Azure and is totally in love with the colors and the ease–but let’s face it…it is really because it comes in a pouch. My mom loves putting things in zipper pouches. Anyway…the Trish McEvoy mascara is a miracle worker for ALL types of eyelashes, and when it comes time to wash it off at the end of the day…it’s amazingly simple. Well, Abby, how does it wash off? Y’all will have to watch the video below to find out…*wink*

What did you think of this makeup tutorial? Would you like to see more makeup videos on VIP Beauty Tues? Let us know what you think! Please feel free to email the VIP team here anytime with your comments. :)

Also, there is a VIP Beauty Flash Giveaway going on NOW! HURRY because the giveaway ends March 12 @ 9:00PM CST.
