Charlotte Tilbury event in John Lewis - Meeting Charlotte Tilbury

Hey my lovelies,

I really wanted to share this experience with you all. Last week if you follow me on twitter you will have seen that i received a really exciting email. I honestly couldn't believe what was inside ..inviting me to her press event in John Lewis Liverpool. I squealed with excitement and couldn't believe that this little blog, my space on the Internet had been chosen to meet my idol and queen of makeup. 

Initially the invite was a little vague. Just said to be at John Lewis partner door where i would be escorted into a room to meet and greet CT .

I honestly thought we would just be around her newly launched counter that is now in John Lewis Liverpool. Listening to her while she stood at the front of the counter and we got to speak to her for a few minutes as i knew she was doing something like that later on in the day.

I was completely wrong...

I went to the door and waited while the others arrived. There was only 4 bloggers and the rest where all from magazines. 15 of us in total. 
I was so so so nervous and had so many thoughts going round my head. It was so nice to meet everyone especially two other bloggers Sam and Katy. They made me feel so welcome and not so alone. 

When we where escorted to our room , told to take a seat anywhere and help ourselves to any food and drinks. That's when i began to realise that this was more than just an counter experience, but a one on one event.

The room was displayed amazingly with each of her 10 key looks on the wall and the table laden with every item in her line. I was in heaven.

Sam, Katy and myself managed to get seats right at the front, with that the incredible Charlotte Tilbury walked in shook hands with us all and she noted that i had her makeup on which i could have just died when she said it , then she sat herself right next to us. 

She talked us through each of her products and what her brand stood for . Which to be honest i could totally relate too.
She to me is amazing and with over 20 years of experience under her belt and a list as long as anything with all of the famous faces she has painted, so she knows her stuff 100%

In September 2015 she launched a film called project confidence, giving new mum Alexis her confidence through the power of makeup. 
Due to the success of this Charlotte and John Lewis released a second film in the project confidence series that was aired to us on the 10th March 2016. This time around she was asked by bride to be Claire to transform her and her mother in law for her wedding day. Of course with the extensive knowledge and makeup magic Charlotte knows she was able to not only do this for her but give her all the products to recreate this on herself for her big day. It was inspiring to watch and im totally about her saying "Give a woman the right makeup and she can conquer the world" Can i get a hell yeah. 

I'm a total advocate for that as sometimes just a sweep of eyeshadow, or in my case eyeliner and eyebrows I'm ready for anything... COME AT ME 

I also love that as of yet I've never tried anything that i don't like from her brand.Its all been super good quality, amazing longevity and an ingredients list to boot. 
"Its Easy to choose and easy to use "

After the talk and all the product testing , she picked out a look for us all. When she said this i thought she meant a makeover. I was wrong , out of her 10 looks she picked us all one and in our goodie bag we where gifted all of the products to create this along with sooooooo many items from the line with her magic cream, magic eye rescue and the magic night rescue cream. 

I was given the Bombshell look which is inspired by Marilyn Monroe, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Scarlett Johansson.

All about the red lip.

She is so so nice too, lovely person to talk too and her skin is incredible. After 5 hours sleep she still looked fantastic and ready to face the world.
