So, Who Is Shenae Grimes-Beech?
Last Thursday I attended the Annabelle cosmetics party where they announced their new ambassador Shenae Grimes-Beech. If you haven’t heard of her (like I hadn’t), she’s an actor and personality from Toronto who lives in the US. Perhaps it’s that I’m not a native Torontonian, or that I don’t follow the local film scene nearly as closely as I should, but I had no idea who she was.
To quickly fill you in she’s from Toronto and played in 90210 as Annie Wilson and Darcy Edwards on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Cool tip, Shenae was an actor in the music video “All You Did Was Save My Life” by Our Lady Peace which coincidentally is the first band I’ve ever seen live. Crazy right? Not really? Anyway, Shenae also
Her cutie husband was DJ’ing the event (which by the way was off the hook) and later they posed for pictures and Shenae signed autographs. The highlight of the event… Two words, FREE MAKEUP! Jealous? The wall of free makeup was raped and pillaged über quickly but in the end everyone left with something like the brown eyebrow pencil I managed to swipe! Jealous? Keep reading it gets better. Annabelle employed a handsome makeup-mixologist-type-guy to make custom lip gloss for everyone who wanted it… for the low low price of (you guessed it) FREE!
I’ve always been a fan of Annabelle cosmetics for my clients and friends (mostly because they’re Canadian) but after the event was the first time I’ve ever dipped into the makeup for myself. Upon exiting we each got a free gift bag and you better believe I got a bundle of swag makeup too SO… I decided to let my girlfriend go to town on my face and it was a dastardly disaster to say the least. So with hesitation here is a close up of me in … makeup! With much stubble and a few drinks in I present to you an image you won’t soon forget. Mostly because it will haunt you! ;-/
