Napoleon Perdis Event

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you're all well ! So on the 3rd of July, I had the lovely opportunity of attending an event at the Napoleon Perdis Counter at the Bourke Street Mall David Jones. The event was based around 2 specific make-up looks, which have been created in conjunction with their latest collection, the Slim Aarons Collection. One was a natural look called "Aristocrat", which consisted of bronzed eyes, a beautiful nude lip and gorgeous glowy skin. The other, called "Poolside", was a slightly more glam look, with a much more natural lip and bronzed eye paired with a blue winged liner

The event began with some lovely cakes and drinks to get us settled and wait while others were still arriving, we were also greeted with a gorgeous satin satchel on our seats, which included some gorgeous make-up goodies - these will be featured in my Haul next week !

The woman who ran the event was, Lidia, who has over 10 years experience in the make-up industry and has also worked with Napoleon, himself, on shoots and events. She went over what looks she'd be doing through-out the event and explained that we could follow along with the face charts we were provided with, which had each product being used, listed.

Lidia spoke through the entire make-up application process, covering which products she was using, the techniques she was applying the make-up with and why she was applying them in that way. She also answered any questions that we may have had regarding the make-up.

This was the completed look on the gorgeous Tatiana. The make-up look was nice and natural but still included a bit of glam with the winged blue liner, slightly smokey eye and bronzed skin. It's such a gorgeous look, and could be worn on everyone !

Once the make-up application was over, we then looked around the counter at all the products and spoke to the other make-up artists there about any questions we may have about the make-up. We also could redeem our ticket for $99 worth of Napoleon Perdis Products, I can't even put into words how difficult it was choosing only a few products, when I was surrounded by endless incredible make-up ! Haha.

The Slim Aarons Collection, which was the feature of the night, included a full size nude lipstick, gorgeous cream stick highlighter and a compact bronzer, which was packaged in a blue case, that featured Slim Aarons photography on the front.

One of the major highlights of the night was being able to finally meet these 3 gorgeous girls, Monique, April and Shayley. I had been speaking to these girls for a couple of months, after we met through Instagram and all had a mutual love of everything beauty related. We had met up earlier in the day to fit in some extra make-up shopping around Melbourne, which resulted in us going into Mecca Maxima twice... Whoops ! They are honestly the nicest girls and I couldn't think of better people to be able to share my love of make-up with. I will also link their social media sites below, if you'd like to check them out ! :)

I'd also like to give a massive shoutout to the lovely and extremely talented David K Davey, who invited us to this event and made us feel incredibly welcome while we were there. I will link his Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook down below, I suggest going and checking him out, as he is so SO talented and extremely funny !


I hope you've all enjoyed this post and stay tuned for my Napoleon Perdis Haul, which I'll be doing both a blog post and YouTube video on.

Have an incredible weekend and I will see you next Tuesday !
