While there are plenty of great local spots to purchase makeup products like killer brushes (Sigma) and liquid lipstick (Aromi), sometimes you need everything at once. Here’s why you should try doing it at Nordstrom. They carry an impressive breadth of products at varying price points, from MAC, to NARS, to Trish McEvoy, to Clinique. Their associates are skilled and trained, many of them working makeup artists. If you need to be matched to a foundation shade, they can do it perfectly while addressing your skincare concerns and finding products that really work for you. Nordstrom’s yearly “Mascara Madness” is not to be missed, either. Another perk of shopping for makeup here? If you also need a new pair of sneakers or a bra, you can grab your lipstick and powder and then take the escalator upstairs.
