If you ever need to have your makeup done in New York City, you can visit any Blue Mercury store - they offer a complimentary  full-face makeup application with a purchase of 3 full-size products.

To make this deal even sweeter, all month long is their Fall Beauty Fest, featuring Pro Makeup Artists from NARS, Laura Mercier, Yves Saint Laurent and more! 

I loved my makeup application, but my hair needed some TLC. I ended up leaving with some Blonde products from R+Co. I was drawn to the modern packaging, which they claim was designed to evoke and enhance the user's experience of this unique, complex, forward-thinking brand. All of their products are color-safe, vegetarian, gluten free, and cruelty free.

The "SUNSET BLVD" Blonde shampoo and conditioner smell subtle, yet sophisticated and can be used by a man or woman. It eliminates brassy tones, leaving blondes extra bright and greys "fantastically silver" like "photoshop for your hair."

R+Co SUNSET BLVD Blonde shampoo and conditioner, $29 each.
