On February 13th, aka Galentine’s Day, we kicked off a new year of Small Town Strides with our third event! It was an empowering night of socializing, beauty, cupcakes, and rose hosted at the home decor shop, The Estate of Things. The event featured local blogger, speaker, and makeup artist Wendy Rae Fiallo, who partnered with us to share some of her tips to help us step up our makeup game. And boy, she didn’t let us down!
The evening started with some socializing, shopping, sipping, and snacking followed by a demonstration by Wendy. She brought along a daring model to demonstrate some eyebrow, eyeshadow, and facial contouring techniques, while also sharing some history of makeup and the importance of skincare. Even those who may have been more experienced with makeup were floored by her knowledge and advice. The evening concluded with a question and answer session that allowed ladies to ask for tips on products and techniques that might personally benefit them.
Each gal left the event with a Small Town Galentine’s Day goodie bag, new-found knowledge on how to better accentuate their favorite facial features, and perhaps a new friend or two! It was such a blast to watch these women connect and bond over something as fun and transformational as makeup.
We look forward to seeing you all at our 2nd Anniversary Party at the Wine Cellar on March 10th. This will be another one of our free Small Town Social events and we hope that you will join us in celebrating two amazing years of consciously connecting the women of this community!
