Blushington is my favorite place to get my makeup done before an event. I love the atmosphere – the girly decor and the sweet and talented makeup artists. For a short time, they are collaborating with cruelty free self tanner brand, Vita Liberata, for a pre-Emmys pop up shop. It seems that each year, everyone in “the industry” (AKA the entertainment industry) in Los Angeles is either attending the Emmys, helping to produce the awards show, or attending some kind of Emmys party. So you gotta get glammed up, right? The Blushington and Vita Liberata collaboration is perfect for getting your spray tan and makeup done in one place.
I stopped by Wednesday, and it turns out I was the FIRST person to try out the Vita Liberata tanning service! I don’t love stripping down in front of strangers, but Crystal made it so easy. She was super nice and I didn’t feel uncomfortable while she sprayed the tan on. I asked to do a medium tan on me (my default is Casper the Ghost pale). The immediate effect was a nice bronze that developed into a gorgeous, even tan over the next 6 or so hours.
After getting my tan on, I hopped into the makeup chair so Marissa could give me a glowy, bronzed makeup look. She used a lot of my favorite cruelty free brands, and the result was just gorgeous. I asked for full coverage, and a smoky shadow around the eyes (but no thin eyeliner – that always makes my eyes look tiny). I was thrilled with the natural-looking glow she gave me, plus the fuller eyebrows and bronzed eyeshadow with a nude lip.
And yes – I liked this sunshine-y photo so much, I made it my profile pic for the site (on the right side) – haha!
If you want to get your pre-Emmys tan on, hurry! The pop-up shop ends Saturday (Sept 17th)!
