Events: Benefit Blogger Event

Last weekend was a busy one for me, but I loved every second of it! Saturday morning before heading to London, I made my way to my Local Debenhams store for their first ever Benefit Beauty Bloggers event ran by Abi. I had met the lovely Abi before when she offered to give me a sneak preview of the Killer Colours They're Real products, however this time she hosted an event for a group of Telford Bloggers.

I was the first one to arrive and it was lovely to see Gemma from Skinsincere there, along with some of her amazing samples. I took loads of photos of the raffle, goody bags and the treats from Krispy Kreme and Mollies sweet shop, before grabbing a pink party hat and choosing a seat next to Hannah and Karen.

Abi talked through all of the new Christmas launches and gift sets, all of which are amazing. I love their packaging as it doesn't scream Christmas, making it accpetable to buy one for yourself if you really wanted to (I may or may not have done this...). A few of my favoutires were the perfume set, Real Cheeky Party and Party Like a Rockstar. 

Afterwards, Abi (using Gemma as her beautiful model) showed us a makeup look that could be created entirely with Party Like a Rock Star. She then paired up with people we hadn't spoken to before and got us to have a go at recreating the look. I was so panicky and poor Bethany most have wondered what I was doing do her as all I kept saying was 'OH NO, OH MY GOD and AHHHH'. I'm so sorry Bethany! Despite my panic, I think I actually did okay and will definitely be trying the look on myself.

Abi showed us another look and then it was Bethany's turn to do my makeup, who was a total pro! My makeup looked stunning and it was all still in place after I got to my London hotel. Amazing! 

Abi had been in touch with a couple of brands before the event and managed to put together an amazing raffle, with all money made going to the Bold is Beautiful campaign. I bought a couple of tickets and was so happy when my name was pulled out as the winner! I never win anything! Some of the brands had also generously dontated products for our amazing goody bags so I would like to thank Skinsincere, Mollies, Wild Olive, Bare Minerals, Popband, Debenhams and Krispy Kreme

Before heading out me and Hannah spent ages trying to decide what to buy and I finally decided on the Real Cheeky Party gift set. I LOVE IT. I'll do a blog post soon as it is AMAZING

Thank you Abi, Leigh Ann and Debemhams Beauty Telford for an amazing event! I can't wait until the next one. If you would like a free Benefit makeover in October or November at Benefit Telford, please book quoting 'BeneBloggerBestie'.
