Hollywood: Makeup & Martinis Recap ft. Melissa Hibbert of PROliphic Beauty + Italy: Love Top Giveaway!

Hey TFBers,

In November, I invited you all to the “Makeup and Martinis” event in Hollywood featuring Melissa Hibbert and her PROliphic beauty team. As you all know, I have been a bit behind in coverage, due to outside fashion projects and the rigors of daily life. I am pleased to finally weigh in and share photos from this awesome event. The crowd was fashionable and tasty martinis helped to make a social night even more social! Despite a heavy downpour of rain, there was  a steady stream of fashionistas at the event. I came early to get makeup applied by Melissa Hibbert and she did a great job!

She is really talented in applying a smooth foundation without it looking overblown. She chose a bright blue with navy undertones to bring out my eyes and I loved it! I have never tried blue eyeshadow in a deeper hue and I am a convert. It is definitely a cheerier version of the smokey eye and shows the depth of Melissa’s artistry. Learn more about Melissa and PROliphic beauty via her official website: PROliphicBeauty.com. As models got ready for the in store fashion installation, I wondered upstairs to check out the makeup team as they readied the model team. I like how crisp the make up looked and the lip palette was perfect for the clothes used. Melissa even mixed custom lip shades which had a few guests wishing they could purchase the shades to try later! The models were all from Multi Facet Inc. and they did a great job showcasing both fall/winter items and a few springier looks. I was chosen to be one of the hosts for the night and I had a great time meeting so many fabulous people!

Thank you Miss Dunnie for producing this haute night of fashion! Did you attend?! Did you have fun? Leave a comment below.
