HAPPY HOLIDAYS!  Holiday parties are right around the corner and there’s nothing better than making a statement with some bold holiday glam makeup! I went to get my makeup professionally done right here in Eau Claire and I’m sharing my experience with you.

I set up a makeup application appointment at my local Ulta. My MUA was Derek. He has been in the beauty industry for just over 5 Years. Within Ulta, he has been a Prestige Beauty Advisor, Clinique Boutique Manager and now is a MAC Specialty Artist.  He was so knowledgeable about products and answered every question I had.

He asked about my skin type, heard my ideas and was also creative with the final look!  He had awesome ideas with the color story of the makeup look, which I always appreciate.
