So the day after The Rub cocktail event , which was a fantastic night of meeting new bloggers, it was time for another event by ELLEfluence which was at the Benefit Cosmetics counter in Debenhams, Eldon square! The event showcased how to achieve perfect brows by showing their luxury wax,tint and eyebrow shape service ,makeup demonstrations, a goodie bag, drink and yummy pizza from Manny's !

I was greeted with a glass of fizz and pizza whilst mingling with other lovely bloggers with some I met previously from The Rub cocktail event and also new lovely ones ( You know who you are)! If I was to rewind a few years ago I probably would've turned down the invite to an event due to the lack of confidence I had but now I LOVE meeting new people especially those who are passionate about make-up and blog like things, just like me! We were put into groups of 5 people where we were first shown Benefits amazing waxing,tint and shaping brow service ( the UKS no1 Eyebrow service company), then we were shown make-up demonstrations. I volunteered to sit down on the clients chair and have my eyebrows filled in and shaped a bit more ,which was so weird for me as a make-up artist as usually its the other way around! The lovely Laura from the Benefit team took into account with what i wanted which was an in between eyebrow look,not too subtle but not too dramatic. As I'm someone who dislikes dramatic over the top 'Instagram eyebrows', I was very pleased with the outcome of the finished look ( pictures above)  and felt like the brows framed my face a lot more! Laura wrote down the products which she used which included the Ka-brow in shade 4, Gimme Brow in Shade 3 and Highbrow highlighter.  At the moment Benefit Cosmetics are offering a brow kit including all the brow products for just £28.50 which is a total bargain as on average each brow product retails at about £20 each! I'd grab that offer right now because that is a total bargain! Our goodie bag was kindly given to us including a Benefit Brow Conditioning primer and a mini Benefit Roller Lash mascara which I have been wanting to try to ages !

After being dolled up, fed and pampered, me and other lovely bloggers decided to go for a quick drink before eheading off home!  I can't wait to see you all soon ( You know who you are ) <3.

The whole experience with ELLEfluence has been so amazing and I am so thankful for the effort and warmth put into each event! I can't wait to see whats in store next <3

For years I have truly been infatuated with Charlottes passion and love for make-up and also how she empowers both women and men all over the globe with her very own makeup line ! When watching Charlotte apply makeup, she truly explains the benefits of her products and exactly what they achieve when enhancing the face! As Charlotte has been an incredible celebrity make-up Artist for years I can identify that for years she has poured her entire heart and soul into her brand. By doing this she has  not just stuck her name onto something without little knowledge about why certain ingredients have been used. Since the launch of Charlottes tremendous makeup, it has been loved by so many people, including me !

Entering the Charlotte Tilbury stand in Fenwicks, Newcastle is like entering a rose gold wonderland which really captivates the eye when walking through the maze of makeup counters. I have used a few of  Charlottes lipsticks including an Autumn favorite 'Glastonberry' which I am super pleased with as the pigmentation, vanilla smell and lasting power is truly worth the more pricey price tag! Whilst rummaging through the makeup,  the Hot Lips lipstick in the colour 'Tell Laura' instantly caught my eye! The colour is so up my street as these type of colours truly suit my complexion and taste as I am never someone who shys away from bold lips! As I currently work in a hot, sweaty studio where I constantly drink coffee whilst applying makeup to clients, my lipstick usually needs to be reapplied however,  wearing this lipstick  stayed put the whole entire day and only justt slightly faded! I feel like this is going to be my new favorite!

After  constantly catching the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze & Glow on so many blogs,youtube videos and make-up artist kits,I felt like it was time to see what the fuss was all about. Not only is it admired by a lot of people, the sculpt and highlighter is surrounded by a beautiful and classy rose gold packaging which truly reflects the quality of the product itself! Before purchasing, I asked to try it beforehand and it  totally transformed my skin instantly! It gives a beautiful very subtle contour and highlight to the face which is very buildable depending how high your contour and highlighting goals are! This product really sculpts my face so quickly and easily that I have now moved on from my trusty L.A Girl contouring concealer in 'Beautiful Bronze' to now this ! I feel so comfortable contouring with this in day time as it so natural and can easily be buildable to a more night time dramatic look ! I am so pleased to find amazing products that are definitely worth their price tag! I can't wait to try more from Charlottes range because so far I am impressed and in love with her brand! Thank you Charlotte for giving me killer cheekbones and luscious bold lips!

So on Thursday I was invited by ELLEfluence to attend the amazing Urban Decay event in Newcastle which included a make-up class hosted by the talented Urban Decay artists team! The team were showcasing the benefits of the brand new Urban Decay makeup goodies and showing us tips and tricks on how to use them! As I am a makeup artist myself, it's key for me to know what's new and to keep up to date with any new techniques that are trending! It was my first proper event and I was both excited yet very nervous, however, the night turned out to be a complete success  as everyone was so lovely! I am so ready for another one!

The night consisted of make-up, meeting lovely bloggers,drink and yummy food made by Rub Smokehouse & Bar in Newcastle! I tried a pulled pork and apple burger and it was literally LIFE. I am definitely going to attend there next time I'm in Newcastle and so should any of you reading! After the Urban Decay team showing us all their magic  and tricks in their makeup class, which were delivered so passionately, we were then directed downstairs into the store to have a closer look at the products and to make any cheeky purchases, which I certainly did! The brand new Urban Decay Liquid moondust eyeshadows really struck my attention with how beautiful the two-toned colours are especially the colour 'Recharged' which I purchased ( swatch in the photograph above). Along with my purchase, I was also given a goodie back full of samples to try out!

I really enjoyed the night and all the effort that was put into it by ELLEfluene, Rub Smokehouse & Bar, Laura Pearman Photography and most importantly Urban Decay! <3
