Friday at Caravan was very exciting!! We were honored to have Carrie Preston, of True Blood, and The Good Wife, come to us for hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. Carrie was looking for something sophisticated for her TV interview with New York LIVE. She was invited to talk about her upcoming movie ‘That’s What She Said’, which looks super funny, and we’re dying to see it! Carrie was really sweet and we loved taking care of her. She chose a darling black with white piping top, with a matching floral laced pencil skirt from Reddoll by TM for her outfit. She looked picture perfect! She also took this beautiful Twinkle by Wenlan assymetrical dress for her premiere the following night.
We wanted her hair and makeup to compliment the outfit without overpowering it, so we agreed on a cute updo that would surely scream sweet and innocent. We started with our Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Clip-less Curling Rod, this is the best tool for effortless looking detail. We teased her hair at the base and wound random pieces around the rod to give the look an unintentional feel. We then pulled the sides back into a secure ponytail and pinned the remaining sections thoughtfully around it to disguise the closure. We then used our Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium 1 inch Curling Iron to softly curl the bang that was left out to add a little softness and fun to the style. By curling a few pieces and then using a small amount of Rusk Cream will instantly make the look more fun and less structured, while preserving its polished quality.
For her makeup we agreed on a clean look. We began with our DDF products. The Amplifying Elixir led the way, followed by the Ultra-Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew, and Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer. The Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer is one of our favorites of the line, it gives you instant gratification by hydrating skin and shrinking pores. At the same time, the peptide-packed formula exfoliates and repairs skin cells for lasting anti-aging benefits. Once her skin was prepped and ready, we smoothed her foundation on, and followed with her eyes. We started with an iridescent shadow, in a soft pink hue that would shimmer beautifully in any light. We gave her a ton of lashes that were sure to wave hello to the cameras. We added a touch of ULTA Bronzer with a little blush to bring out her cheeks a bit.
We wanted to show Carrie our appreciation for her visit so we made sure she went home with some cool items. We let her choose her favorite Caboodle to tote all of her goodies in. She chose the cute black and white checkered Caboodle and we packed it with the few DDF products that we used and the ones that catered to her skin specifically. She left with a huge smile on her face and we can’t wait to see that smile again soon!
