GET THERE EARLY.
Of course, we’ve got a good guide coming up for you but let’s make one thing clear right off the start, with thousands of people expected to run to NORDSTROM tomorrow – try to get there on time or even better, earlier than the start time, which is Friday, March 6, 2015 at 7:30 – 9:30 am. Why? Because the old adage, the early bird gets the worm, in fact applies here beautifully.
And with beautifully, we mean exactly that. The first 2,000 shoppers get a LIMITED Edition NORSDSTROM Tote! Plus, everything that has to do with skincare, make-up, cosmetics, nail polish, hair care, body care, beauty-related services – all these will be available at brand, spanking new NORDSTROM Ottawa and we just can’t wait to experience it all.
While we will also talk about what best to wear to the NORDSTROM BEAUTY BASH, let’s first have a rundown of what major beauty brands you will see at the new NORDSTROM Ottawa.
WELCOME TO THE WORLD-RENOWNED NORDSTROM BEAUTY DEPARTMENT
Fully equipped with 50 Beauty Advisors, the NORDSTROM Beauty Department will be one of the most visited sections of the new store. It will be an open concept lay-out and will feature a pressure-free play bar, hot trends zone. Moreover, they will carry mini beauty must-haves, products that are smaller than retail size but bigger than sample sizes so you could actually try out the products substantially before fully committing to purchasing the full sizes.
World-renowned brands like Chanel, Nars, Jo Malone, Creed, La Mer, Burberry Beauty and Chantecaille (both exclusive to Ottawa), Anastasia Beverly Hills, Deborah Lippman, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, La Prairie, Mereadesso, Clarins, Kate Sommerville, Shiseido and more will be on hand to provide you with the latest in skincare and beauty!
It`s luxury at its best as the Beauty Department will also have a trusted concierge who does not work on commission but will direct you to what will work best for you. As mentioned above, the list of top beauty brands that NORDSTROM Rideau Centre will carry is to die for and walking in into the Beauty Department will be tantamount to a beauty junkie`s Disneyland. No doubt about it.
NORDSTROM OTTAWA BEAUTY BASH (MARCH 6, 2015 7:30-9:30 AM)
Here’s what you need to know. Just before Nordstrom Ottawa open its shiny brand new doors to the public at 9:30 on Friday, there’s a Nordstrom Beauty Bash at 7:30-9:30 am! If you love make-up, skincare, lots and lots of cosmetics, this one beautiful event is for you!
GUIDE TO THE NORDSTROM BEAUTY BASH
As I am personally excited to visit brands that are exclusive to NORDSTROM in Ottawa (like Burberry and Chantecaille or brands I’m curious about like Mereadesso), I also can’t wait for the many surprises the NORDSTROM staff has in store for everyone. In order to maximize your time and ensure that you get the most out of the experience, here’s our guide for you so you not only survive but the thrive the NORDSTROM Beauty Bash:
- Get there on time. Even better, earlier.
- Wear comfortable shoes. Wear comfortable clothing (see our guide below). You will be walking from one brand to another and you’d want to be comfortable to visit them all.
- Know what you want (what you really, really, want… I know, Spice Girls reference must’ve aged me!) – skincare, nail polish, etc. and the brands you want to see. Two hours go by really fast especially when you’re having a blast!
- Get nourished and hydrated. If you can’t have a full breakfast before the Beauty Bash, have a little snack. You want to have enough energy to keep up with the festivities of the day.
- Go make-up free (if you dare!) especially if your goal is to try on cosmetics. You don’t want to waste time wiping off the very same make-up you thoughtfully put on.
- Bonus Tip: Grab a girlfriend or two, or more (Hello Facebook!) and HAVE LOTS OF FUN at the Nordstrom Beauty Bash!
