Before the party, CoverGirl brought together several beauty bloggers in a suite at the London Hotel for a pampering party. Stylists did our hair (I asked for Big Texas Hair, inspired by my recent trip to see family in the Lone Star State) and applied our makeup using CoverGirl products. Fellow blogger and event buddy Amber from Beauty Junkies Unite spent 3 minutes selling me on the virtues of CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation , which gives light-yet-buildable coverage, and was created with the help of industry legend makeup artist Pat McGrath.

At the party, I hugged friend Cory Monteith and chatted with the impeccable Louise Roe, ran into several scenester Hollywood friends (always a plus to make you feel a little cooler than you actually are!), and made plans with Lauren Conrad’s excellent makeup artist Amy Nadine to interview her here on the site. Coming soon!
All in all, it was a wonderful night! Thanks to CoverGirl for the invite, and be sure to check out the new CoverGirl Facebook page , featuring incredible prizes and giveaways, such as the opportunity to dance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show or the chance to meet Taylor Swift.
