So it’s Friday night, you’ve been to work all week, and you’re going out with your girls in the evening.
If you’re anything like me, you can do your makeup to a certain standard, & that’s about it.
My two friends are absolutely stunning & their makeup ALWAYS looks flawless.
I decided to up my game & book myself in to Clarins for a makeover. All of my skincare is by Clarins. I will not use anything else! I also use their foundation & have done since the young age of 15.
I decided to book in at 5:30pm on a Friday evening. I finish work at 5pm & work close to a Debenhams and a Clarins counter. I was due to meet the girls at 7pm & so I thought this would give me enough time to get home & whack on a dress!
I arrived at 5:30pm and was greeted by the lovely Sasha who instantly made me feel at home.
She began by taking off my makeup from the day & cleansing, all with Clarins products.
She then went & applied my makeup starting with face cream, foundation and concealer. I use their True Radiance foundation (£27.50).
She then started to contour which is the most exciting thing ever. I had never, nor had I ever even attempted to contour. I am no Kylie Jenner let me tell you. Sasha knew exactly what would suit me, what colours to use, the fact that I like to use bronzer (I believe in Summer all year round!). She used little tricks like applying eyeshadows as blusher etc. She’s a makeup genius.
The fact that I have long eyelashes, she utilised those with their Wonder Perfect mascara, which is the best thing since sliced bread! No more drugstore mascaras for me! Good bye hard earned salary!
She also used a liquid eyeliner on me because I said I never used it. She created the perfect little flick.
Sasha chatted to me about what colours I preferred, what I normally wore & what I would like to try. We also had some general chitchat, which is lovely when you’re sat thinking ‘did I forget to pluck my eyebrows?!’ She really made me feel at ease and it was a truly relaxing experience.
She then went and applied eyeshadow – I went for a light eye and a louder lip. I ALWAYS go for the dark eye, pale lip, but in the hands of an expert, I wanted something different.
The whole look was finished off with some of their Fixing Spray. I ended up buying some of this on the evening (along with the Wonder Perfect Mascara). I am SO glad that I did!
My makeup literally lasted 7 hours straight. Even my lipstick did not budge. This, may I add, was after a 3 course meal, cocktails AND wine with my girlfriends! I was so impressed!
I have honestly never felt so ladylike & walked out of Debenhams feeling a million dollars! As it’s my anniversary next weekend, I am looking to go back & let her work her magic on me again! I need her to move in with me ASAP!
So, I was all set for my evening with my girls. Be sure to check back in the next few days to see what we got up!
