Taking place on Thursday, March 7, the beauty department at Nordstrom will be hosting a super-fun Beauty Blush Hour event from 6 to 9 p.m., which highlights the '13 spring and summer (that's right!) beauty trends — how's that for a little divine inspiration? After grabbing a cocktail (or two), stop by one of the "beauty bars" for an express makeup service to erase that drab Chi-Town winter complexion.
As if that wasn't enough of a reason to be excited to get out of the house, one of our fave beauty starlets, Shannon O'brien (among other cosmetic experts), will be on hand to chat about her favorite products and trends to ensure you make the right purchases. Oh, and did we mention there's an epic swag bag? Reserve your slot now by stopping by your favorite cosmetics counter at Nordys. It'll cost you $20, but that's fully redeemable toward any beauty purchase the day of the event. We love a win-win situation.
Nordstrom, 55 East Grand Avenue (between Wabash Avenue and Rush Street); 312-464-1515.
