You know you have a problem when a Scandal-themed party invite enters your mailbox and you don’t even check the date. You just say yes. Last night, I celebrated(mourned?) the season finale of everyone’s favorite governmental soap opera with some blogger friends at a party hosted by Makeda from Glamazon Diaries and Lara from Pretty Connected at the beautiful Carlton Hotel in NYC with Caravan Stylist Studio. They dished about the beauty essentials used on Scandal while we sipped on wine Olivia Pope-style by Tiziano Wine. Yes, people, these products are actually used on set by Olivia Pope and her team. I was so uber excited! Here’s a rundown.
How does Liv look so rested when she’s busy saving The Leader Of The Free World? Skyn Iceland Hydro Coll Firming Eye Gels are the secret! These are free of parabens, petroleum and all the icky stuff. They’re 100% vegetarian, cruelty-free and allergy tested. These puppies will give you that well-rested, ready to take over the world look.
Sally’s skin looked remarkably fresh right after killing her husband, no? Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray did the trick. With aloe, herbs and rosewater, use this to give you a pick-me-up and hide stresses not too different from murder. This has been seen on Martha Stewart and is only priced at $7 for a purse size.
Abby may have been the proxy a few episodes ago but her hair does not play second fiddle. She keeps her red vibrant with Professional Sebastian Cellophanes a3 complex. This helps keep hair color on tone and gives it that just out of the salon glossiness. Extra bonus points? This is ammonia and peroxide free.
Quinn’s makeup always look so natural and fresh even while she’s drilling away at a human being. Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Liner and Healthy Volume Mascara keeps her eyes beautiful. At the end of the day, she wipes the makeup (and blood flecks) off her face with Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes. This is extra gentle on the skin and even removes water-proof eye makeup.
We had a fun time getting our Scandal makeup done by Dean from Lorac. You may know Lorac from their cultish pro series. If you’ve ever wondered how Olivia keeps her skin looking so beautiful with so much red wine, Lorac is her secret.
Many thanks to Lara and Makeda for this fabulous Scandal party! I had so much fun!
