Hi my loves! I went to an amazing Armani Beauty event last night that was also a meet and greet with Marianna Hewitt so I thought I’d share some pictures from the event and my experience. It was the first beauty event I’ve attended in NYC so I was so excited!
So first let’s talk about the event. I found out about it through Marianna Hewitt’s secondary Instagram page @blogwithme. It’s a page she uses to share her personal tips and experiences on blogging for the rest of us rookie bloggers to learn a little something. She’s so helpful and I’m so appreciative that she made this page to help others in her industry succeed. So I quickly signed up as soon as she announced an event in NYC. The event was held in Soho at the Armani Box pop up shop. They have all of their amazing beauty products lined up for everyone to try on and test out. I decided to trust one of the makeup artists there and let him pick me out a lip color to purchase. I ended up with the lip magnet in shade 500 which he insisted when I wore it, it should be named “free drinks all night.” I was laughing because it was such a cute thing to say. They also engraved each lipstick personally as an adorable little bonus for purchasing a product at the event.
Meeting Marianna Hewitt was amazing. I saw her as soon as I walked in and she is SO tiny in person. She is so stunning and looks just as beautiful as she does in her photos. I waited until later in the event to say hi because she had a lot of people around her. She was so sweet and down to earth and even checked back in with me later when she saw me buying a product to ask what I had bought. It just makes me want to support her and her brand even more knowing that she’s such a genuine person.
My absolute favorite part of the event was the photo booth! You guys!!!!!! They had red glitter confetti blowing up in the air with a cute little video being taken of you. It was by far the cutest thing I’ve ever seen so of course I had to do it! I met another blogger while waiting in line to do the photo booth and we chit chatted and decided to take pictures for each other so we had some extra content from the event! She was so sweet. Her IG handle is @g_for_grace go give her a follow!
Overall, it was a fun filled night and I met so many genuinely sweet bloggers as well as fellow New Yorkers. I can’t wait to attend more of these types of events in the near future and try some more beauty products from Armani Beauty!
