Very Party In Style Event; Launch Of The Samantha Faiers Collection

On Thursday the 13th of October, I jumped on an incredibly delayed train up to London to meet Ash for the launch of the Samantha Faiers collection for Very at the OXO tower right next to the thames. We managed to nab a ticket each - at just £15 for a ticket to the show, free champagne on arrival, canap├ęs and beauty treatments you can't really go wrong! - such a beautiful location too!

The Outfit
I'm going through a wee bit of a no spending phase at the moment - as i'm saving up for a huge fashion and beauty event in December so I had to rummage around my wardrobe and find something perfect! -stress-
In the end I opted for my trusty 'L.R.D' (little red dress) that I scored on ASOS in September last year, but you can find similar ones still there or boohoo have some good offerings! I love this dress sososo much, has a lot of cleavage going on but is quite long in length so still somehow with all of that boobage on show it still looks classy!


The Make-Up
I'm going to be completely honest with you and confess that I had completely no idea in which direction my make-up was going. I filmed myself getting ready for this event which you can watch here, or watch it at the end of this post! I knew I wanted to have a dramatic look and either a bold lip of some form and this is what I came up with...



Base

Eyes
Mixture of e/s from the Urban Decay Naked Original Palette
False Eyelashes (from a supermarket, but I wouldn't recommend as too shiny looking)

Lips
Iridescent Eyeshadow in the center

I was way too busy mingling and mooching around that I forgot to take loads of pictures but these pictures are the ones I managed to take.

Lola was also there although I didn't manage to get a snap of her lovely face! Check out her post here





I had previously met Leanne at the Bloggers Love Hub day one and she was and still is so lovely, and she recognised me from before! Even though we had at least a half an hour long conversation at that previous event, somehow I got all giddy saying 'Hi' again! -hey Leanne if you read this-
I have a massive girl crush on Leanne, she's definitely the kind of girl i'd love to be my friend, hit the shops with! She's so down to earth, easy to talk to and she's blooming gorgeous!
I was also introduced to Jacq Boulton who is absolutely stunning and also a sweet girl!

I had an awesome time at the Very event hosted by Hearst Magazine events, even if we did miss the first hour due to the delay on the trains! The only criticism I have is that the event itself was very short, and Samantha's 'talk' about her collection was very short and was read off a card... 

Till next time...
Have a lovely day and may all your days be merry
