Smashbox Cardiff Launch day photos

Today I had the privilege of attending the launch of Smashbox Cosmetics in Boots Cardiff. It was absolutely wonderful! The store was very busy when I got there at 2pm for my appointment with the lovely Smashbox Crew rushed off their feet. I took my perch and was treated to a full facial makeover. 

I'll let you in to a little secret readers,I'm 28 and I've never EVER been to a makeup counter to have my colours or makeup done. I've kinda just gone through life trying out different products and finding what works for me.

After my make over I had the opportunity to have photos taken by Steven Khan who has taken  photos of some of my favourite celebs (you can see his work here).  

My favourite product today was Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation Primer. It has made the makeup last a LOT longer than my usual foundation. I love the look and it's definitely something that I'm going to try to recreate at home. You can see my photo after the jump and the list of products used. I didn't pick anything up today but went home with lots of tips and a wishlist as long as my arm!
