Last night I went to the CoverGirl 50th Anniversary Party at Boa Steakhouse–and let me tell you, it was a hell of a good time! To celebrate both the 50th Anniversary and the launch of CoverGirl’s new Nature Luxe line, they brought together all the past and present CoverGirls, including Drew Barrymore, Niki Taylor, Rachel Hunter (who looked amazing–I spent the whole evening thinking she was her own daughter), Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Dania Ramirez, Cheryl Tiegs and newest CoverGirl Taylor Swift.
Sam Ronson DJed, and it felt as if all of Hollywood was there, post People’s Choice Awards. Other guests included Cat Deeley, Lauren Conrad, Selena Gomez, Sofia Vergara, Beverly Johnson, Amber Riley, Cory Monteith, Sophia Bush, Whitney Port, Louise Roe, Brittany Snow, Jesse Williams, Mario Lopez, Kate Walsh and Kendra Baskett.
I have an enormous girl crush on Drew Barrymore, so I was simply excited to see her in the flesh: gorgeous and adorable, as always!
Before the party, CoverGirl brought together several beauty bloggers in a suite at the London Hotel for a pampering party. Stylists did our hair (I asked for Big Texas Hair, inspired by my recent trip to see family in the Lone Star State) and applied our makeup using CoverGirl products. Fellow blogger and event buddy Amber from Beauty Junkies Unite spent 3 minutes selling me on the virtues of CoverGirl NatureLuxe Silk Foundation, which gives light-yet-buildable coverage, and was created with the help of industry legend makeup artist Pat McGrath.
At the party, I hugged friend Cory Monteith and chatted with the impeccable Louise Roe, ran into several scenester Hollywood friends (always a plus to make you feel a little cooler than you actually are!), and made plans with Lauren Conrad’s excellent makeup artist Amy Nadine to interview her here on the site. Coming soon!
All in all, it was a wonderful night! Thanks to CoverGirl for the invite, and be sure to check out the new CoverGirl Facebook page, featuring incredible prizes and giveaways, such as the opportunity to dance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show or the chance to meet Taylor Swift.
