Sometimes, opportunities come along that make you really grateful for everything you have and do. Some of these opportunities happen out of complete luck, about being in the right place at the right time. This happened to me when I was at the Bloggers Festival in September. bareMineralss were there, and were holding a competition. The prize? A full makeover and all the products they used on you, you got to keep. Makeup heaven anyone? I did an unboxing video of what I received on my channel if you fancy having a peek.
The day started off early with me heading to their offices in Soho. Their offices are beautiful by the way. I was met by the lovely Ally and the PR team, filled with coffee and fruit, and then taken to where I was to have my makeup done. It was like I had stepped into one of their makeup stands in a department store! Fully kitted out with everything, and stands filled with the products on display, I couldn't be more at home.
I was in the safe hands of SJ and her team, who gave me two amazing looks; one for day and for night. I was super surprised at how versatile all the products were- most of them were used in both looks, making it easy for creating a work-to-party look. We took shots before, during and after each look. In the before photos I just have moisturiser and my brows on. Scroll down to see the looks!
This is the day look! SJ created a really cute natural look, keeping it all about looking fresh faced and rosy. I've always been a bit scared of blusher, and as you can see, I'm wearing blusher in these photos! But SJ showed me how to apply it properly, so now I can apply it with confidence :) Here are some of the products they used on me:
And here's the night look! I was so impressed at how different this look was on me- it almost completely changed my face shape! This dramatic look consisted of a purple smokey eye, nude lips and bronzed skin. SJ just added to what she had already done, only taking off the lips and a bit of the blusher. Here are some of the products they used on me:
So thank you to bareMinerals for this amazing experience! I cannot put into words how much fun I had (but I've tried to in this post)!
