Being able to work closely with some of my favourite makeup brands is one of my absolute favourite things about my job, and last week I definitely had one of those pinch me moments!
I was asked by SEVENTEEN (by far one of the best makeup brands on the highstreet in my opinion, for their incredible quality yet affordable beauty products that won’t break the bank) if I would like to hold an event with them for the first ever Blogger Network meet up. I of course said yes.
The event was set out to be super inspiring and something I would have loved to have attended when I first started out blogging. There was a YouTube/Google expert there giving a talk on his ‘10 Tips Every Beauty Vlogger Should Know” (seriously fantastic advice and guidance) and I also gave a talk about my blogging journey to becoming a full time content creator. I added in my top tips for growing your blog (which I might actually make a video about soon as the feedback from beauty bloggers was really positive) and overall there was just such a inspiring feel for the evening.
Not only that, but celeb makeup artist Vanesa Guallar was there doing makeup demonstrations on this year’s hottest makeup trends. I’ve actually known Vanesa for years now and she’s someone I always go to for beauty advice (anyone remember this post) so to see these makeup looks come to life with SEVENTEEN products was mesmerising!
My favourite trend of the evening was definitely ‘Sci-fi Skin’ – a beautifully natural makeup look of which it’s main focus is a metallic, dewy sheen, so skin is left looking glowing. I’m also a massive fan of SEVENTEEN’s new Mega Matte Lipsticks to create the Bold Lips trend. These lippies retail at £4.49 each and come in 12 beautiful shades to create stunning statement lips.
If you’re an emerging beauty blogger who wants to meet new bloggers, get inspiration and share posts then I really recommend joining the SEVENTEEN Blogger Network – it’s a fantastic platform and hopefully I’ll get to meet you at future events!
