Hi guys! On Sunday I went along to Glamour Magazine's Beauty Festival at the Saatchi Gallery in West London. The event was held over the weekend of 12th and 13th March and was packed full of free treatments, talks from guest speakers and shopping areas for top beauty brands,
It was a beautifully sunny day but before I set off it was essential to stop off at my local cafe, Perfect Blend in Streatham, for breakfast!
The event was spread over three floors - ground floor was all about hair and makeup where Redken, GHD and OGX were on hand to style and braid hair. Laura Mercier, Illamasqua and Nars were also offering foundation fittings, statement eye makeovers, blush & bronzer masterclasses and there was a Benefit Brow Bar too. I had my hair curled by a lovely stylist at GHD!
The first floor was the skincare zone where Liz Earle, Elizabeth Arden, Balance Me and Garnier were offering free facials and skin scanning. Garnier was also promoting its new Moisture Bomb range. Finally the second floor was the Nail Zone where Sally Hansen were doing nail rehab treatments, OPI were doing fun nail art and Rimmel were offering manicures with their new Super Gel polish range.
You could also have a makeover with Lancome, who were promoting their new Juicy Shaker lip gloss then star in your own Glamour Cover Shoot and print out your own Glamour front page! There were also talks on the day from YouTubers Jim Chapman, Fleur De Force and Estee Lalonde and Glamour's Beauty Director, Alessandra Steinherr, hairdresser Sam McKnight, Rita Ora, model Neelam Gill, male supermodel David Gandy and celebrity make-up artist Lisa Eldridge. I didn't go along to any talks as I having too much fun wandering around all the stands but they all looked really interesting!
Best of all we got to take home the most generous goodie bags ever worth £106! I'm so excited to try all these amazing products especially the new Garnier Moisture Bomb moisturiser, Balance Me serum and Benefit Roller Lash as I have never tried these before. I am already a huge fan of Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish so am glad to see that in there!
