Get a Better Profile Pic: Free Estee Lauder Makeup + Photo Session

How many times have you cringed at your [choose one of the following: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blog, Stumble Upon, Yelp, Going.com, MySpace, Match.com, all of the above] profile picture and wished that a fairy makeup godmother would descend from the heavens, paint your face perfectly and then snap a profile photo that finally does your countenance justice?

If the answer to that question is far, far too many times, then you’re not alone. To remedy the situation, you could, of course, shell out the big bucks for private makeup application and session with a professional photographer.

Or you could head to the Macy’s Estee Lauder counter this weekend, when pros will be offering up free makeovers followed by a photograph with a professional photographer. Along with a freshly made-up face that achieves the look you’re after (think modern and professional for LinkedIn vs. smoky-eyed and sultry for Match.com), you’ll walk away with a free hard copy of the photograph and receive a digital version sent via email to post online to your heart’s content. A final perk: a free 10-day supply of foundation.

Sessions are free, but offered by appointment only on Jan. 16 and 17. To book, call 415-397-3333.
