OUR NEW Marketing Manager Chantal recently visited the N07 make-up counter at Boots to get out of her make-up rut and discover a new look.
I walked into Boots for my make-up makeover a bit nervous, I’m so used to my everyday look that I was scared to change just one part of my look even though I know deep down that I have to.
Sitting down for my free No7 makeover I screamed a bit on the inside when I was asked to remove all my make-up.
WHAT IF somebody walked past saw my incredibly pasty face, snapped a picture and hashtagged #TROLL for all the world to see? But alas I took one for the team and removed every single speck of everything – eek!
These all worked wonders on my incredibly dry skin which now no longer feels like a Ritz cracker but a refreshing waterfall instead – if you see me out and about don’t be afraid to reach out and touch my forehead.
Taking less than a minute to find my Match-Made Skin-True Shade (cool vanilla) I was then asked to pick a foundation type which would suit my lifestyle, I went for Beautifully Matt as I like high coverage and a flawless finish.
Concealer was then applied in the same Match Made shade to cover up dark circles and blemishes and after a touch of blusher and translucent powder to set the look, I can honestly say I felt like an airbrushed Kardashian!
Next it was time to move onto the eyes – after letting the girls know that I wanted to look like a rock star they soon got on to giving me that all-authentic smoky eyed look.
Using the Perfect Eyeshadow Trio in Twilight (a mixture of sparkly black and grey shades)and finishing with a few coats of Lash Impact Mascara, my eyes were soon transformed into a look that 80s rock Goddess Joan Jett would be jealous of.
Next up was that all-important slick of lipstick, alongside the foundation and concealer, the No7 Match Made Service also finds your precise shade of lippie.
After finding my perfect palate of colours ranging from Paprika to Deep Rust to Blushing Rose I decided to go for a stand-out red which would really make my look pop!
And there you have it in under an hour I was transformed from a pale, spotty, tired-eyed girl into a Rock & Roll Icon!
So next time you want to try out a brand new make-up look get yourself down to Boots and book yourself a free make-up makeover with No 7 – I guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.
