As summer holidays approach, I have been trying to get my skincare and beauty regime in some sort of order. The thought of sunshine and cocktails had me wanting to perfect a beach bronzed look.
I find beauty a little harder to get right over fashion. I have a tried and tested look of smokey eye and nude lip combo which I almost feel scared of breaking away from. When I got a little invite to a Dior masterclass to create the ultimate bronzed look it really could not have came at a better time. Cocktails, canapes and expert tips from the amazing Dior international artist, Jamie Coombes? I’m there!
Heading to one of my favourite venues in Scotland, Blythswood Square was the ideal setting and I knew it would be a lovely evening of sheer luxury. There’s something so special about the hotel, a beautiful but subtle glamour and opulence. The staff can never do enough for you, making you feel so welcome and relaxed. Wednesday evening was no different, greeted with a chilled glass of prosecco and shown to one of the sleek yet oh-so-comfy seats to await Jamie’s expert advice to begin. We soon all had an individual plate of canapes each, which I admittedly devoured (they were so good!) and Jamie took to the front of the room to start.
Jamie is one of those people who can just capture a room, he is funny, personal and so knowledgeable about make up and the Dior brand. He shared so many great tips in creating a perfect faux glow, complete with a pop of pink lip colour which I couldn’t wait to try. Following Jamie’s masterclass, the Dior pro team were on hand for one-to-one demonstrations and helped me find a red tone lipstick which most suited my skin tone, something I have never been able to find. I took my mum (and massive Dior fan) along too and she was matched up with her dream eye look, a lovely brown tone which looks fabulous!
We may have indulged in a little purchase or two.. (more on that on my holiday packing post) and enjoyed such a relaxed evening of beauty. If you’re looking for some beauty advice from Jamie himself, he is actually in House of Fraser Glasgow at the Dior counter today and tomorrow morning so there’s still time to book in. Just give the Dior counter a little call to avoid disappointment. Hope everyone has a great Friday!
