Smashbox Event – Boots, Manchester 19th October 2012

If you follow me on Twitter you’ll have seen the 50 million tweets I’ve sent about this, but if you don’t ย – yesterday, I attended the awesome Smashbox Cosmetics ‘Click, You’re It’ event at Boots in Manchester City Centre.

I was invited by their lovely PR team to have a makeover by leading Smashbox MUA Janine Bird and my photographs taken by the world-famous photographer Steven Khan, who had snapped stars such as Beyonce and Tyra Banks!

Their stand was set up right in the middle of Boots, mini photo studio and all! For those who didn’t get the chance to work with Steve, Smashbox set up a cute photobooth for on-demand snaps of their gorgeous looks.

My time at the counter started with my makeover – Janine sat me down and asked me all about the kind of look I love, and also about my skin type. She tailored the primer, foundation and eye products around my dry skin and love of smoky eyes. At the bottom of this post, there will be some of the photos that were taken of my look!

Here are the products that Janine used on me, including the Smashbox HD Foundation, Original Primer, Under Eye Primer, O-Plump gloss and eyeshadow trios!

Next came my mini photshoot with Steven Khan. He is a genius, and knows exactly how to take perfect photos to show off make up looks. With tiny tilts of the head, he shows off different aspects of the make up – it’s no wonder he is so well respected in the industry!
