My first blogging event at The Body Shop

On Sunday 30th September, after a long day at work, I left Primark and walked down the road for my first blogging event at The Body Shop! Have a look at their new range, what we got up to and the goodies I received.

The Frugal Frenchie

The staff were really welcoming and friendly, offering us a glass of prosecco as well as seeing if they could help us at all. With me working full time during the weekends, it’s rare that I go to The Body Shop so I had a really good look around- let me tell you, there were so many things I didn’t recognise so I was just smelling and trying on everything!

I also had a look at their skincare range, something I struggle to get right. I've heard lots of positive things about their Vitamine E and D range, but it's the tea tree oil products that I've always been a fan of. I'm sure there's more products than they used to be and I had a great time making a mental Christmas list!

Bold and daring makeup look: Shop with me!

As you can probably tell from the pictures (or lack thereof) of me, I am not one for photoshoots or bold makeup looks. In fact, this is the second time in my whole life that I’ve ever had a contoured face! Because I’m super happy with how the pictures turned out, I thought I’d share with you this bold makeup look in a “shop with me” way. Hope you enjoy a different type of post!

Bold and daring makeup look: Shop with me!

All the following products are vegan and cruelty-free¬†(which is so important to me) so let’s get into my transformation!

Preparation

I used my detox clay mask to get rid of any dry skin or blackheads that could ruin the texture of my makeup. There’s nothing worse than putting makeup on and then it being ruined by such an avoidable thing!

Face

After primer, the Arbonne foundation in the shade “Porcelain” was used, followed by one of my favourite products, the setting pretty powder. The foundation has got a vaccum pump, so there is no product wasted! I think that’s just so economically and environmentally friendly that it was worth mentioning.¬† Oh oh and I didn’t even need any concealer because the foundation just had such good coverage!

That was just for the bare basics, but Emily then added some blush in the tone “Dusty rose,” which I thought made my normally unexistent cheekbones look nice and distinguished. The last touch was, of course, bronzer which really helped my face gain definition in front of the camera. Continue reading “Bold and daring makeup look: Shop with me!”
