As a blogger I've seen hundreds of good reviews about Rodial's skincare range, but didn't know much about their makeup range. So when Rodial invited me along to a sculpting masterclass and makeover at Harvey Nichols I was very excited!
I'm quite boring when it comes to makeup (despite the fact my makeup bag is bursting at the seams) and usually go for the same look everyday - and that look does not involve contouring! Despite all the tutorials I've seen with women dotting different shades of concealer, highlighter and bronzer all over their face I just never got the hang of contouring and steered clear of it, assuming my face just wasn't a contourable one.
When I arrived at Harvey Nichols I immediately noticed that all the women on the Rodial counter had AMAZING makeup. They all looked effortlessly beautiful but were sculpted and defined to perfection. This was definitely a good start and I couldn't wait to discover their tips and tricks.
Firstly my skin was prepped with the Dragon's Blood cleansing water and tonic spray, followed by the new Stem Cell Magic Gel moisturiser. This is a multi-use hydrator which makes your skin look completely refreshed and gives you a dewy glow.
Then it was makeup time! I tried the new Airbrush foundation and was seriously impressed at how full the coverage was. Then my cheeks were sculpted with the Instaglam Deluxe Contouring Powder, a matte bronzer for the cheekbones. Finally I was introduced to the new Banana Powder - a yellow toned powder which corrects redness and pink undertones and neutralises blue under eye circles. It can also be used to set make-up or as a highlighting powder to contour. This worked magic on the dark circles under my eyes!
I was so impressed with the entire makeup range and fell in love with all the products! Sadly I didn't have any plans for after my makeover to go and show off the finished look so I just sat on the tube home feeling very glam....
