A weekend or so just gone I had the pleasure of being invited by the lovely team at Lynette Page to have a little makeover done at their Make Up Bar and flagship store in Knutsford, Cheshire. I absolutely jumped at the chance as for me there is nothing I love more than having my make up done and also learning a few tips and tricks along the way! Firstly the salon itself is utterly delightful with huge windows and plenty of natural light which made the place bright even though it was raining! (Typical North West weather!) Lynette herself and one of the artists Holly were both busy when I first walked in but they both were absolutely lovely and welcoming something I sometimes find rare in salons or when I've had my make up done professionally in the past in department stores etc.
Lynette who's is the owner of the make up bar and Academy created my look on the day. She asked what I liked my make up to do and what I usually created myself. Next she showed me her new skincare range which I'll have more on in a future post as I also attended the launch! Though I do have to say it's rare that I'm actually impressed with skincare products these days but her system was brilliant! Usually when I'm wearing a full face of make up by the end of the day when I'm ready to remove it my spot prone skin will be all riled up and I'll end up with pimples and bumps in my skin, but when Lynette used her Skin Care System not only did I notice that the make up stayed even and didn't go patchy on my combination areas but also no pimples appeared at the end of the night! The one product that I definitely NEED in my life is the Holiday Romance Lipstick which Lynette used on my lips which is a Demi Matte True Orange and as soon as the colour was on I absolutely loved it and this is one red toned lipstick I don't have anything like in my collection! It also wears incredibly well!
I've made a Youtube video talking more about my time there and you can also see the Make up in this video (I took some lovely photos of the make up but my camera decided not to auto focus on any of them!)
