Macarons + Makeup

Last night was a dream come true for me: Not only did I get to learn how to make macarons (one of my favorite sweet treats in existence!), but I also got to do it while celebrating a ton of amazing beauty products carried by QVC. I’m talking tarte eyeshadow palettes, philosophy lip glosses, Laura Geller blushes and bareMinerals lip colors, just to name a few.

And let’s not forget about the macarons. The class, which took place at the Manhattan Sur La Table and was led by the amazing Chef Cameca Bacchus, was super informative (I never knew there was so much to learn about egg whites!) and really hands on. So yes, that means I played a part in making every single one of the delicious macarons I took home + indulged in last night and this morning.

I’m not 100 percent confident I could make macarons by myself at home (at least not the first couple of times), but it doesn’t mean I’m not going to give it a shot! Another thing I can’t wait to try out? All of the amazing beauty products I got to take home after the macaron-making class!
