Seven Ways to Makeover

ShareThis

Prescriptives, Bloomingdale’s
Directive: Natural, but new for fall.
Fee: Free; no appointment necessary.
The Vibe: At seven on a weeknight, every counter was packedexcept for this one.
Overall: The makeup artist slathered moisturizer on my face, then applied loose powder, creating an unpleasant cake-batter sensation; later, she poked me in the eye with an eye penciltwice. Although she was pleasant, she couldn’t explain much about the products, which didn’t leave me itching to buy.




Bobbi Brown, Bergdorf Goodman
Directive: I’m a bridesmaid in a fancy wedding.
Fee: Free; no appointment necessary.
The Vibe: Calm and professional.
Overall: For my real everyday, the best of the bunch. Barbara even asked about the neckline and color of my bridesmaid dress. She made up one eye, then had me watch in a mirror as she did the other. I left convinced I could replicate the look.
I might actually buy: The gray clay lip liner, $20; it defined but didn’t look fake.
