For all of you who are slightly bitter about not being about to go to the fashion shows, here’s something that could possibly make up for it: getting your makeup done for free by the experts at Maybelline near Times Square (yeah, I know how you beauty junkies think!!).
I went yesterday and here’s what it’s all about…stop by the Maybelline/CVS retreat at 1701 Broadway (and 54th…right next to The Ed Sullivan Theater) between now and Thursday and:
* Reps from Elle, O, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Teen Vogue, Vogue, Makeup.com and New York Magazine will give you the latest scoop on beauty and fashion trends for Spring 2011.
* You’ll get a very personalized makeup consultation and touch ups with Maybelline New York makeup artists (I got mine done with January — if you stop by, tell her I say hi!). They will even leave you with a face card and a list of all the products they used to make you look fab.
* Get free Maybelline products and CVS/Pharmacy coupons, exclusive giveaways, and a complimentary Fashion Week hot spots map. And PS, I scored one of their new Falsies mascara which I’ve been dyinnnggg to try after hearing all its amazing reviews. Happy Day.
* They also have this cool private computer station set up for you to upload your new look to Facebook or Twitter. Plus, they have everything set up there for you to channel your own inner makeup artist and upload a video of yourself creating a makeup look (on yourself or a friend) with Maybelline cosmetics for a chance to win a makeup artist assistant position with Maybelline New York Global Consulting Makeup Artist Charlotte Willer during the Fall 2011 Fashion Week Shows in February 2011.

Who knows, you may even catch some celeb spottings: Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr stopped by for her touch-up last weekend, while My Generation‘s Jaime King demonstrated some makeup skills of her own!
Let us know if you go and what you thought…
