A few weeks ago myself, Alice and Amy made our way to Basingstoke for their storewide beauty gala event. Upon arrival we were greeted by refreshments and canapés before the lovely Davina took us round the event explaining to us what each counter was doing. There was so much going on and it was nice to see all the counters and staff had made such an effort to get involved in the festivities. Clarins were doing skincare consultations and facials, while the girls over at Benefit were all about the brows! There was a contour masterclass with the ladies at YSL showcasing their new Summer Collection Moroccan Nights, and the girls over at Urban Decay showed us how to create the perfect day to night look.
It was so nice to attend an event with beauty enthusiasts alike and we spent a good few hours discussing all things makeup and skincare, I even managed to meet another blogger, Hannah, whilst she was teaching me how to fill in my brows at the Benefit counter. The event itself was organised perfectly and all the staff we met were welcoming and friendly and keen to share their knowledge and tips with us all. Both me and Alice were lucky enough to walk away with raffle prizes courtesy of Clinique and Benefit, on top of the wonderful goody bags which were kindly given to us by Davina.
Overall the Basingstoke really took care of us whilst we were there and Davina, Lyndsey and all the other staff members involved should be so proud of what they have achieved as the event was a booming success. I look forward to seeing what future events they hold but in the meantime I will be popping in to pick up everything on my ever growing wish list.
