This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the P&G Saturdate with Beauty event at Walgreens Times Square where P&G had hairstylists and makeup artists on hand to give free makeovers and beauty tips to the attendees. It was such a great way to spend the morning!
Oh, and did I mention that the event was hosted by Tim Gunn? Minor detail, right? I was freaking out (inside, of course. Gotta play it cool.)
As soon as I got to the event I had the pleasure of sitting down with Gardner, a Pantene hair stylist, to have my hair put up in a summer beachy pony tail that could easily take me from day to night. Gardner first prepped my hair with the Pantene Blow Out Extend Dry Shampoo (which smells SO GOOD it’s insane) to give the style a bit of grip and then tousled my hair with his fingers to make it intentionally messy and undone. After curling a few bits with a curling iron (I came to the event with my hair in beachy waves so he didn’t have to curl much) Gardner put it up into a mid-height pony tail with slight volume at the crown to give it an undone look. He then set everything with a quick round of Pantene Flexible Hold Hairspray and I was done! The best part about this style, though, was the fact that it could easily take me from day to night since when I took my hair out it still looked amazing!
PS – tons of Pantene products are on sale for 2/$7 right now at Walgreens so you know I’m going to be stockpiling that dry shampoo. It normally retails for $6.79!
After I had my hair done I had the pleasure of meeting Tim Gunn who, I might add, is THE sweetest person on the planet. Not that I expected him to be anything but fabulous but I was seriously blown away at how kind and awesome he is. Tim took the time to talk to each and every person who was waiting in line for a photo with him and was dishing out genuine comments left and right. He’s just an all around amazing person and I’m so happy that I was able to meet him! I had plans of getting tons of style questions answered (because really, how do I style my short legs and long torso? Anyone?) but he had a long line of fans waiting for him so I didn’t want to cause a delay. Now I’m kicking myself!
Covergirl makeup artists were on hand giving each attendee the perfect date night look and I have to say – everyone looked absolutely gorgeous! I had the chance to try out the new Covergirl Colorlicious lip gloss and I loved how hydrating it felt on my lips. It’s absolutely perfect for these warm summer days because it provides a gorgeous wash of color with high shine but never feels sticky or heavy. I’m also really excited about the CoverGirl Perfect Point Ink It Eyeliner because you all know how much I love winged eyeliner! It was a great event and I’m so excited that I was able to attend, learn all about P&G products and how they can be used to get ready for a date on a budget, and meet Tim Gunn. I’d consider that a successful Saturday!
