Does anyone remember this post? My entry for the Boots 17 Blogger Spring Challenge? Well a few weeks after entering I got an amazing email with the information that I WON! I was over the moon that 17’s Makeup Brand Ambassador, Vanesa Guallar, had chosen my look as her favourite!
The prize was a ‘makeup master class’ with Vanesa herself for my friends and I. I invited my girlies from my foundation course at Camberwell to come along to my place where Vanesa would work her magic and transform us all into beauties for the night!
THE FINAL LOOKS!
Becky – I’d like to introduce you to my little sister, Becky (although not so little anymore, she is now 21!). Becky chose to have makeup a la Eva Green and this is the finished piece. I love the flawless skin, pink lips and smudged ‘come hither’ eyeliner.
Aniela – This is Aniela who had a purple smokey eye to make her green eyes ‘pop’! Aniela normally wear’s minimal makeup (she doesn’t need it anyway as she is so naturally stunning) but I adore the smokey eyes on her and the false lashes. The purple eyeshadow used is actually the 17 Starry Eyes Trio in Neptune.
Sophie – This is the gorgeous Sophie who had a brown smokey eye and red lips. Sophie has never worn red lipstick before but I think she defo should more because it suits her pale complexion amazingly. This red lipstick is Lady Danger by MAC.
Me – And finally me! I chose to have something similar to Lana Del Ray – with a defined crease of the eye and a big winged flick. Vanesa finished off the look by adding false eyelashes and a pinky lipstick by 17.
I had the loveliest time being pampered by Vanesa – we made a day out of it and ordered a huge pizza, drank lots of frisky bisons and ended up in East London to party the night away. It ended up raining horrifically, but even though our hair was completely drenched, our makeup stayed on perfect all night, ha!
If you could have a makeover, what look would you ask for?
