|DivaDebbi and Michael Kors at Richards|
Late Thursday afternoon, I had my first beauty 911. Michael Kors was coming to Richards to present his Fall 2016 Runway Collection to a small group of devoted clients. I considered this a special enough occasion to glam up with a half fringe of false lashes in the morning. 30 minutes before arriving, my eyelash strip was hanging by a lash...
I hadn't thought to bring adhesive with me, so I dashed up to Sephora for a quick fix. I'm not an unfamiliar face there, so they nicely accommodated me. My beauty adviser informed me that most of the adhesives packaged with lashes are sub-par. The only one to use are those made by Duo Lash. She also likes to seal over the lashes once applied with this brush on, invisible formula.
|Duo Lash Brush On Adhesive|
An effective brush-on adhesive formula for false lashes.
This high-quality brush-on formula comes with an ultrathin brush for precise, quick application of both strip and individual lashes for all-day wear. Enriched with vitamins A, C, and E, the latex-free formula dries invisibly and is safe for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes. Lashes have never been easier.
Nicely, she secured the other eye's lashes as well, which she assured me were also on borrowed time.
Back intact, I scooted back to Richards in time to greet my clients and moments before Michael arrived. He graciously chatted with guests, and allowed them to take photos and selfies with him.
Michael was a hoot. I can imagine him as a perfect dinner party guest. He's warm, approachable, funny and a little self deprecating. His idea of glamour and mine are aligned; I appreciate a great coat, won't shy from a marabou feather and love a little shine, via a brocade, crystal or sequin. Deevineeeeee!!!!

All in all, my favorite kind of night, beauty, fashion, champagne and friends.
If I ever had the pleasure to be Michael's dinner party, I would want to hear some of his tales from the trenches; I can only imagine a trove of hilarious near disasters, deftly averted among his famous clients.
Chances are, he wouldn't bat an eye...
