Yesterday evening I attended The Body Shop’s Green Tea Ceremony event, held in their Grafton Street store. I attended with a few of my beautiful blogger friends, and this was actually my first time in this store since its move, and my were we in for a treat. There was a selection of food & drinks to treat ourselves to from Alchemy Juice Co. and Macarons by Andrea, which were delightful, along with their new Fuji Green Tea collection. It includes Body Butter, Bath Tea Salts & a bath tea infuser, Body Lotion, Body Scrub, Soap Bar and an Eau de Toilette fragrance. The range smells lovely, with a hint of mint, and I particular love the body butter, which is super smooth and would go a long way in my possession. The Fuji Green Tea collection will be available in stores & online soon.
In the corner of this upper floor display room were also three pampering spots; for getting a manicure, brow threading or having a makeover done. Lorna & Lisa both opted for the manicure, while Marrie chose the brow threading and I went for the makeover. The makeup artist who worked her magic with me was such a pro!
Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation – She started off with a light foundation coverage, mixing a light & dark shade for the perfect medium finish. Available at €23.95
All In One Concealer & Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation – She then used the concealer stick around my eye & nose areas and then applied the compact powder on my eyelids to act as a base for the eyeshadow. Available at €13.95 & €23.50 respectively
Shimmer Cube Palette & Smoky 2 in 1 Gel Eye Liner – Using their new eyeshadow palette in Warm Shade, she then applied the shadows to create a subtle smokey eye, before applying their gel eyeliner with a small flick and lashes of mascara. Next up the brows, for which she used the gel eyeliner in Brown along the inner bottom & the arch of my brows, and then filled it in with a dark eyeshadow from the aforementioned palette. A lighter beige colour was also used under my brows to really lift them. The finished result sure looked impressive, and I was a very happy camper leaving the event with a proper face on! Available at €24.95 & €15 respectively
The makeup artist also showed us a demonstration, using their new Poppy Shimmer Cubes SS15 eyeshadow palette, which are all about the bold & colourful eye like the runway looks for SS15. A similar finish to my look, but using blue & yellow tints created a lovely look on the model. All products mentioned are available in stores & online at The Body Shop.
The bloggers and I had such a wonderful time, a much-needed good time after the sad news on Tuesday.. At the end of the evening, we were given little goodie bags with some The Body Shop products. I received the Bath Tea Salts & a bath tea infuser, which I look forward to using.
