We all love a good pamper session, right? I
know I do. The last few months of my life have been hectic, full of sleep
deprivation and a lot more stress than is healthy for a girl of my age. I have
to admit- I’ve really let myself go. I’ve skipped putting on my makeup on a
daily basis to benefit from that extra 20 minutes in bed. I’ve let my brows go,
to the point where they’re as far away from en fleek as possible. I have EYE
BAGS. At 23!!!!
When one of my favourite PR ladies got in touch
with me on behalf of Vogue Hair and Beauty Lounge in Liverpool, I honestly felt
like all my prayers had been answered. I was offered the choice of a
complimentary curly blow or makeup application. As I had a leaving do for one
of my jobs coming up, I thought I’d get my makeup done so I could feel like the
belle of the ball for once rather than the ugly duckling that teaching has
turned me into.
Vogue Hair & Beauty, situated on Old Hall
Street right in the heart of Liverpool, is a little gem. Hidden away in a
old-fashioned building, the salon itself reeks of style and sophistication and everything
you look for when aiming for glamour. When I arrived, I was offered a drink by
staff and seated comfortably. Beth, the lady who was doing my makeup
application, was a lovely and attentive member of staff and I felt at ease from
the word go. The salon was beautifully furnished and decorated, bright and full
of light, and really felt welcoming as you entered.
I’ve had makeup applications before where I’ve
had to spend a LOT of time post-application dabbing off excess product and
toning down what had been done to me. That most definitely wasn’t the case
here. The makeup was applied with precision and care, and Beth took the time to
ask me about my thoughts before applying. The products that she used were of a
high standard and complimented my skin tone perfectly. I opted for a lash-less look
as I’m not really all that used to wearing them and I have pretty long lashes
anyway. I also opted for nude shades on my eyes- I’d bought a gorgeous skirt
from Topshop to wear and the makeup really matched with the look. Beth
finished off the look with a gorgeous coating of a matt lip version of the
infamous MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick and I was good to go, after taking a few
selfies of course!
I would definitely go back to Vogue for a
makeup application- and I’m planning on booking in for when we take a trip to
the races. I’m quite a safe makeup user- I use the same products, in the same way, every single time I put makeup on, so it was nice to go out of my comfort zone and spice things up a little. I felt confident after application and got SO many compliments on
the amazing job that Beth did on my makeup. Thank you so much to the guys at Vogue for the treatment, it really was much appreciated!
