We may be a New York-based company, but we have members in all 50 states. Last week we got to meet some of our amazing California Birchbox-ers at our Birchbox + Smashbox party in Los Angeles. Smashbox generously loaned us their Culver City studio and 12 pro artists for a night of makeup, cocktails, and fun. In addition to makeovers, celebrity photographer Steven Khan and his team heroically snapped portraits of all the attendees with their glam new looks. And, of course, everyone left with a fuchsia goody bag. Here are some of our favorite pics from the event. All photos by Deano Mueller.
Haven’t you heard? Gift boxes are the new gift bag.
Don’t you just want to scoop up all these yummy palettes?

It wouldn’t be a party without a bar — we had sake cocktails by TY KU and tasty appetizers.
Smashbox makeup artists are beyond talented. Here’s one at work.

The event went off without a hitch thanks to our VP of PR, Claire (left), and our new PR Manager, Kelly (sequins). Mollie and Katia ate all the snacks.
Like Glamour Shots only way way way better.
Glossing it up!
We loved chatting with our members — you guys know more about makeup than we do!
