Ok. So. I have been submitting my reservation request to attend a taping of Fashion Friday probably for over a year, hoping and wishing that I would someday receive an email.
Suddenly, I receive an email saying I have been selected to attend not just a taping of Cityline but a Makeover Madness taping! I totally start to drool just thingking of all the goodies I could possibly get.
I have been watching Cityline for I dont know how many many years, I guess since it first aired? Still wish I had attended a show when Marilyn Dennis was the host and the show aired live but hey now I cant be that picky.
From the first email to the phone call confirming my attendance I was so giddy, excited and anxious. Since my reservation was for 2, I invited my fellow Makeup Artist Emily from Glow Makeup Artistry to come along and let me tell you we just kept on smiling and giggling all our way down to Toronto. We get there around 9:45am and we are greeted by the shows producer Chrissie Rejman and she shows us to our seats.
Next, Dino Dillio(Freelance Makeup Artist) comes over to our section and asks " who wants to be a model for the Angelina eyeliner segment?" I nudge Em and she volunteers.
We sit thru the live taping and await for Cosmetics magazine editor Dave Lackie to preview the spring and summer skincare and makeup. He first starts off with Marc Jacobs limited edition Daisy sticker bottle and thats when the give-a-ways start. He keeps showing us product after product and keeps saying and the audience will ge this, and this and this! I start to hyperventilate, Tracy the shows host, tells us that we are getting approx. $700 in gifts! Unreal! see the pic below for all the goodies we got!
