NYX Cardiff Bloggers Event

Wednesday, 14 September 2016

Long time, no visuals guys! I am finally back! I did post briefly on Twitter and Instagram about why I had to take a few weeks off. But for those who don't follow me on those accounts, to cut a very long story short, I dislocated my collar bone and pushed my whole shoulder out of place. So I was without a right arm for 3 weeks and couldn't type properly. But I am finally out of my sling, and whilst still a bit achy, have lots to catch you up on.

Last week I was invited down to Boots, Queen Street Cardiff with a few other bloggers to have a masterclass in colour correction and Insta brows. A massive thank you to all of the girls running the event for helping me in any way possible with my shoulder. As I was still in my sling I couldn't take photos so thank you to my sister, Kristie, for coming along and helping me out too! 

I am a novice when it comes to colour correction on my face. I understand the colours quite well as I use the same sort of technique when editing images on Photoshop but when it comes to actually doing it in real life, I suck. They gave an amazing demonstration of how less (a lot less) is more. When creating looks for camera you sometimes need a thicker coverage and the looks people are creating on Instagram and social media in general use way more colour corrector than is needed for everyday wear. 

They recreated an insta look on one half of the face and then an everyday look on the other and I was so impressed with the final look using minimal correctors and just knowing the problem areas. I have only ever used the lip products in NYX so it was interesting to see the concealers, foundations and contour kits blending so well and giving an amazing finish. NYX are really knocking it out of the park at the moment with amazing beauty products at really affordable prices!

Thank you to the lovely NYX girls for a fab night, I learned so much and they all cheered me right up after a nightmare few days.  Don't forget to call in a see them if you have any questions or you need help with anything, they are always so helpful every time I visit!
