beauty UNDER THE STARS
It’s always a treat when you’re a fan of a beauty brand and you get to meet the founder, who turns out to be a complete sweetheart! I recently had the pleasure of attending an intimate dinner at the home of Christina Zilber, founder of Jouer cosmetics. I’m already a fan of Jouer, but it’s nice to learn more about a brand and what motivates certain products straight from the founder herself. I attended with my friend Lilit (you’ll know her as MakeupbyLilit on Instagram) and we got to catch up with other blogger pals as well as meet some new ones!
The one thing I couldn’t get over (besides the hospitality and the awesome products, of course) was how absolutely stunning Christina’s home was! I walked in and immediately said, “I’m moving in.” Ha! Not surprisingly, the home’s decor was exquisite; there wasn’t one corner of the house that didn’t make me ooh and ahh.
Inside there was a foundation station where we were able to color match and pick what formula worked best for each individual skin type. I walked away with one of the best tinted moisturizer products I’ve tried, which I can’t wait to try!
Outside the dinner tables were set up just beyond the pool, with twinkling lights shining above. We enjoyed a lovely dinner, got to know everyone a little better, and just had a really fun girl’s night! Everything was simply perfect. What I enjoyed most about hearing Christina’s journey with creating products is learning that she created these products with the intention of wearing them herself. I couldn’t think of a more authentic process. And looking at Christina I would imagine no woman would mind looking like her! Her makeup was at the same time glamorous and natural… Maybe I’ll create a glamorous and natural look using my Jouer products?!
