Spring Fix Beauty Event!

A couple of weeks back I was invited to attend a Spring Fix Beauty event in the Birmingham Bullring, originally I was interested to know what this was about, I actually like Spring Cleaning because I have SO much stuff I definitely do NOT need so I was ready for this! As part of the event they were offering makeovers free of charge and they were also holding a Beauty Amnesty where if you gave up 5 pieces of old make-up you would get a £10 voucher for anywhere in the Bullring (Boots or Superdrug anyone?) which I think is fabulous! So I happily gave up some of my old lipsticks and a foundation! When I arrived I had my hair styled by an amazing Umberto Giannini stylist Called Rikki. I usually wear my hair straight or up, I don't remember the last time that I actually had it curled, I wasn't sure I would like it but it turns out I loved it and would definitely wear my hair like this again! 

After looking around and watching others get their make-up done I was presented with a voucher to spend in the Bullring in regards for attending and reviewing the day, at first I decided the sensible thing would be to buy some clothes, because I currently need some due to loosing weight and after a while of looking at clothes I didn't actually see anything that I fancied. So instead, I did what a beauty blogger does best and headed for Selfridges, and you've probably already guessed what I bought.. 3 MAC lipsticks. Que an eye roll from my boyfriend, but I decided I wanted them and I hardly have any reds/lighter shades in MAC lipsticks as I usually go for BRIGHT colours. I originally considered Morange but they had sold out *boo* I kept £15 of the voucher for when they get it back in stock because I thought it would be a perfect addiction to my collection. 

I had a really fabulous time at the Spring Fix Beauty Event, and it's a great way to get people involved in Spring cleaning!

  3. It's a lovely idea to give up your old make-up for a voucher for new one. I need to find one of those events in London! :) x

  6. Your hair looks absolutely amazing! Did it last all day? Whenever I curl my hair it falls out within the hour, because my hair is so thick. I really love the idea of trading in some old make-up for a voucher - although Birmingham is a teeny bit far for me to travel ;) The new lipsticks look great! I'm a huge Mac lipstick fan (how do they last so long?!) and definitely need to stock up on some more next time I go shopping x

  8. I have tried MAC lipsticks before but the shade I chose was Russian Red (because it was Madonna's favourite at the time) and it made me look like Dracula. I also found it very drying. These colours look superb though and I have heard lots about Morange and also Ruby Woo.

  10. Absolutely beautiful. :) I love the look of the lipsticks. I'm at the moment struggling to find a decent mac lipstick, everytime I head to my local counter, they barely have any lipstick samples :( Are there any you recommend? :)

  13. PS - Hope you don't mind me saying, but it would be great if you could turn on the URL/Name option for commenting so everyone can leave comments. I have had to comment under an old Blogger account, which doesn't link back to my blog...
