Do You Woo?

For a girl that is obsessed with makeup and beauty products in general, I absolutely loathe going to the makeup counter at the mall to purchase them.  The thought of being bombarded by the women spraying perfume in your face and practicing their pushy sales tactics is less than desirable.  The solution?  Woo Skincare and Cosmetics!  Woo is a high end cosmetics boutique that carries coveted lines like Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Trish McEvoy and my new favorite - (Plā) Beauty(Plā) Beauty is a full cosmetic line that offers a good chunck of its profits to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta - (read their story here).   Woo also offers services like anti-aging facials, waxing, brow tinting and makeup application.  The best part about Woo?  The staff is suuuper friendly, knowledgeable and won't push you to buy anything you don't want or need. 

After a friend told me about Woo, I decided to go try it our for myself.  I've been bored with the eye shades and lip colors I currently own and tend to always use the same ones, so I opted to have my makeup done to get a fresh new look.  As soon as I walked into Woo I was greeted by Katie, one of Woo's top makeup artists.  She was as sweet as pie and gorgeous to boot!  She began my session with introducing me to a few different kinds of moisturizers, sunscreens and light foundations.  She then moved onto the makeup application.  She asked me a series of questions like what kind of products I currently use, what I don't like about them, and what I'm looking to add to my "look".  Whatever she did must have worked, because I ended up purchasing six of the items she used!
