GLAMOUR BEAUTY FESTIVAL

Yesterday, I attended the Glamour Beauty Festival in King’s Road at the Saatchi Gallery, London. Of course, the entire event was any beauty fanatics dream – I felt like I was in heaven the entire day! The whole event was absolutely incredible, from the beginning to end. There was everything from makeup, skincare and hair care to nails, fragrance and even the chance to be on a mock up cover shoot for Glamour magazine. I honestly want to relive the entire day again, lets hope they have one next year to!

The event was one where you choose which room you want to visit first, as and when you wish to. Beginning in the hair room, there were brands such OGX, Redken and GHD giving complimentary hairdos – anything from curling, straightening, updo’s and braids. I opted for the braids from the OGX stand, and also got the chance to take home some of the best products for my hair type.
 
From there it was onto browsing, lusting over and watching the makeup brands do what they do best. To name a few Benefit, Nars, Laura Mercier and Illamasqua were there, giving complimentary short makeovers, tips, tutorials and an overview of the products.
 
A talk was given during the day by the YouTube and beauty sensation, Tanya Burr in the Glamour Theatre, which was so amazing to get the chance to listen to and hear all about her journey, and how to get where she is. She gave an insight into what made her start YouTube, what incredible opportunitiesshe’s been given and what she see’s for her future. Tanya mentioned how our generation are the “generation of the slashee’s” – meaning there is no one-career field that is relevant to her, just like all of us aspiring bloggers!
 
Shortly after the talk we headed to the Chandon Champagne Barwhere we were given a complimentary glass of champagne – honestly so many free gifts! From there we went onto the skincareroom to see all the latest products and techniques from brands like Garnier, Elizabeth Arden, Balance Me, Liz Earle and Lancome. They were giving complimentary skin tests, hand massages, facials and products. The strangest experience ever was from Garnier – they had an oxygen barwhere you put small tubes into your nose and breath in fresh air. At first it makes you a little light headed but it felt so nice and refreshing, something I’d definitely love to do again!
 
The nail and fragrance room was the last stop as they were located on the top floor of the gallery. As my nails were already done I spent more time in the fragrance room, however there were stands to look around and stations to watch nail treatments being done by OPI, Sally Hansen and Rimmel London. The fragrance room was filled with new products being released by Jimmy Choo, Agent Provocateur and more. We got the opportunity to take a quiz and find our signature scent, which was nice! 
 
Before leaving you are given at goodie bag worth £160 (yes I was so over the moon with it!). There were products from Nars, Laura Mercier, Liz Earle, Lancome, Redken, Sally Hansen, Illamasqua, Garnier and so many more! I totally recommend an experience like this to everyone – there’s so much there that it caters for everyone. If it’s on again next year I will definitely be there, it was so so much fun!
Which brand from the event would be your favourite?
