So last year I was going to a cousins wedding and I brought an amazing dress, but as I’m not very good when it comes to make up I decided I wanted a makeover professionally. However I didn’t want to pay an absolute fortune. So after some research I found out that some beauty counters will give you a make over as long as you purchase a product. I rang around a few but most couldn’t get me in. I then tried Estee Lauder who gave me an appointment.
On the morning of my appointment I washed my face but didn’t use any other products so that the make up artist had a fresh base to start on. I asked for a neutral look but with a bright lipstick to enhance the overall finish.
Here are the products used below and in the order they were used…
1. Serum- Advanced Night Repair
2. Day wear anti oxidant 72 hour- Hydration Sorbet Creme
3. Revitalizing supreme + Global Anti- Aging Wake Up Balm
4.Foundation- Double wear- Pebble 3c2
5. Concealer- Radiant 2N
6. Double wear pressed powder- Ivory beige
7. Blush- Sensuous Rose
8. Brow tint- Light brunette
9. Eyeshadow- Rosy nudes
10. Lashes- Sumptuous rebel
11. Lips –Lip repair potion and Lipstick- Defiant Coral
All of the products were amazing, and I use Estee Lauder foundation anyway. I wanted all of the products actually as my skin looked glowing and the overall finishing look was natural. I was very pleased with the look and the make up stayed in place all day and night. I decided to purchase the lipstick and it is now one of my faves!
My best advice following this makeover is that Estee Lauder is good for a natural look, but not for going out/party make up. I still loved my make up and even booked a follow up facial and makeover on my birthday weekend.
Contact your local beauty counters and find out what they offer, Dior, No7, Clinique and mac will definitely give you a makeover and will charge more depending on what look you go for, but you redeem a product of your choice at the end. Some counters often do make up tutorials and will recommend products based on your skin type and will suggest colour palettes which will suit you.
Go and get a makeover ladies, you deserve it!!
