Urban Decay: A Little Make Over

Last weekend my Mum and I decided to treat ourselves to a little make over at the new Urban Decay counter in John Lewis in Cardiff. I have loved Urban Decay for years, but since the launch of their first Naked palette back in 2010 the brand has become much more stream line and appealing to the masses whilst keeping its original edgy feel.

John Lewis in Cardiff has an awesome selection of beauty counters, but it has recently been made even better with the much needed addition of an Urban Decay counter. John Lewis' beauty floor is situated on street level leading right out on to The Hayes which is super convenient for all your shopping and restaurant needs.

I had my make up done by the lovely Zandra, and my Mum had hers done by the equally lovely Kate. Both Make up artists were extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly which products would be the most beneficial for my Mum's and mine individual skin types.

 They both talked us through every step of the make over and gave us a bit of a background on each product before they applied it, including it's various uses and how we could use it to amp up a look, or use it toned down depending on the occasion.

I decided to play it safe and asked Zandra to keep with a cool toned and neutral theme for my look.

We had a bit of fun when Zandra applied their Perversion Mascara. After seeing the difference on one eye we decided that this was a picture worthy moment to show a true comparison.
The mascara formula contains intense pigments to give a super dark, glamorous look. I'm lucky in the fact that I have good lashes to start with, but this product took them to a whole new level. I loved the effect!

I also really love Urban Decay's ever increasing range of setting sprays, Zandra used the De-slick version on me which is amazing. Not only does it set your make up ensuring it lasts all day, it also keeps oil at bay by stopping any unwanted shine from creeping in.

Ta dah!

Zandra used the following products to create my natural everyday look: 
Naked Concealer in Light Warm - £17.50
Naked Flushed in shade Native - £22.50
Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Blush in shade Obsessed - £19
Revolution High Color Lip Gloss in shade Big Bang - £15
24/7 Glide on Eye Pencil in shade Smoke - £15.50

My Mum and I had a fantastic afternoon, and we definitely picked up some handy make up tips along the way. Next time you're in John Lewis, pop over and say hi to Kate and Zandra. Make sure you tell  them I sent you ;)
