Smashbox, Ponsonby

Helen, Grayson, and the rest of the team are cutting-edge pros. They won me over the first time they spruced me up for an event (my boyfriend kept telling me I looked pretty all night) and I’ve been going back ever since. I even entrusted my face with them when I got married (to said boyfriend) and I wasn’t disappointed*.

It was also where I tried false lashes for the first time… and subsequently became addicted to those little puppies from that moment on.

(*Disclaimer: I’m not promising any proposals out of this by the way. There was a large chasm of time between the makeover and the nuptials so I’m not suggesting these two events were necessarily related).

Best part: Makeover is redeemable on product. Staff are lovely! They have great new products in all the time like their brilliant tinted primer and their cool lip-gloss that goes on clear but turns your lips super pink.
