Smashbox Studio Store Launch Event

For this year’s first beauty event, I decided to attend the Smashbox Cosmetics Studio Store Launch and to obtain some beauty tips from the Smashbox Global Pro Lead Makeup Artist: Lory Taylor-Davis.

The makeup artists present at the event talked with such passion and dedication about every technique and product related to beauty. You could start with a simple “hi” and end up with a 10 minutes talk about different types of concealer or end up with an offer for a full makeover. I was so pleased to actually see them enjoying their time there, doing their job and being so excited about every new model they can work with. I immediately started to try all the new products and ended up with both my hands full of matte lipstick swatches. The day got even better after our SmashBox Freebies

  • A Smashbox Full Exposure Palette which I’m considering purchasing in full size and adding to my everyday makeup routine. The matte colours are perfect for day time and they blend together very easy. 
  • And a Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil, which you need to rub onto your skin 5 minutes before your makeup for a smooth application of foundation, or you can use it  before bed and you’ll wake up totally hydrated.

For my outfit I decided to go for something more casual chic. As Rose Quartz is the Pantone’s #2016 Colour, I’ve combined three of my  favourite items in this share they blended together beautifully. Under all this pink pop out, I tried to darken up the outfit with a fluffy dark blue turtleneck sweater and a pair of high waisted flower print pants (which may not come by surprise for some people whom know that 80% of my pants are flower printed). Even if it’s a last season colour, my marsala boots will still be a good colour match for this W\F.
