GLAMOUR Beauty Festival 2016 | London
Glamour Beauty Festival 2016 is a two-day event where we can spend the morning or afternoon browsing and getting treatments from the stands of the world's top beauty brands. Plus, we get to hear expert advices from some of the biggest names in the beauty business! It was held over the weekend of March 12th & 13th, located at Saatchi Gallery.
I bought the Sunday afternoon pass (valid from 2 pm - 6 pm) for £52. The reason I chose that day was because i wanted to attend Lisa Eldridge's talk. The ticket may sound expensive but it was WORTH IT!! Oh, and the luxury goodie bag worth over £150 is amazing. Keep reading if you want to see what I did the whole day!
So first, I visited NARS Cheek Studio, where we can get a contour-blush-highlight cheek makeover by the NARS makeup artist. I've been wanting to try NARS bronzer and blush, she even gave me those samples to try at home! I was beyond happy!
Next, I went to Illamasqua eye makeup area. We can choose an eye look from the four eye makeup option; glossy lid, feline flick, graphic gaze and smokey eye. I ended up picking the blue ombre feline flick! Fun fact: Claire, the talented makeup artist asked me where I came from, and it turned out she was the one who trained Illamasqua makeup artists in Jakarta! She mentioned that Indonesian are so cute haha
The queue from both stands took me like 15-20 minutes, so I got another 20 minutes until the talk starts. I decided to get my hair braided at OGX! Again, we can choose which braid style we want on the braid menu, I chose the cool girl braid because it's on trend right now lol (thanks to Kim K) and would like to see how it looks on me!
Then, after I got my braid done, I realized I still have 5 more minutes so I rushed into the Chandon bar to get my complimentary Chandon to drink it while watching the talk :
Lisa Eldrige, as the celebrity makeup artist and author of Face Paint: The Story of Makeup shared about building hugely successful career, making her first book and her personal life. One advice that I learn from her is "focus on your dream job and find people who have the same goals or career paths with you. Therefore you'll be on the same page and it can get you whereever you want to be"
As you can see, the luxury freebies are AMAZING! It includes NARS & Laura Mercier lipgloss, Benefit mini roller lash mascara, Illamasqua nail polish and lipstick, OPI, Redken hair products, OGX shampoo & conditioner, Lancome makeup remover, and many more!
Turns out I kinda like the braid on me :) Overall I had a fantastic experience! If you are a beauty junkie, this festival is perfect for you!
