What do you get when you mix make-up, candy and a collection of symphonic, 15th century-inspired jewelry? A lovely event like Monday evening's Michelle Phan Ever Eden jewelry collection launch in collaboration with Glamhouse at Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge.
Phan got her start making YouTube make-up tutorials and has since become an internet and fashion sensation with almost two million subscribers and 600 million video views. Now she has her own brand new Ever Eden jewelry line that captures elegance and influence all at once.
The launch event for her debut collection was packed with guests thoroughly enjoying the adorably packaged champagne served by smoking hot waiters as Phan herself (at left) looked stunning, sporting the Crown of Valor head piece from her collection.
A.sweeT. was also on hand for the occasion with an assortment of candy to satisfy sweet-toothed guests with everything from white chocolate covered gummy bears to those oh-so-nostalgic candy buttons. Bags and candy scoops were also given which made for very efficient peach ring and jelly bean hoarding in our purse.
In addition to the sweets, guest were also treated a little pampering with complimentary make-up applications. Thanks to Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge's cosmetically gifted ladies, we left the party looking ten times more amazing than we did when we arrived.
But of course, what stood out most was the jewelry. Inspired by Joan of Arc, Phan's debut Ever Eden collection captures the martyr's strength, elegance, and courage flawlessly; a perfect balance of glamor and power.
To cap off the night, all guests were given gifts bags before leaving so we would go home with something to remember the wonderful evening by. Not mad at that, I'm already wearing my new Ever Eden Armor of Eden Cuff!
