Smashbox Cosmetics Cardiff Launch - Press Release

Ladies, something a little different from me today, but something I hope you'll be interested in. 

I LOVE make up, almost as much as I love nail polish. and was excited to hear that Smashbox Cosmetics would be joining the stands at Boots, and even better they're going to have a stand in Cardiff. To celebrate their new stand the company are having a launch event that you can read more about after the jump. 

To celebrate the exciting launch of Smashbox Cosmetics in Boots St Davids Centre, Cardiff on Tuesday 14thAugust, we are hosting an exclusive in-store photo event with Steven Khan, world renowned fashion photographer.
From Friday 17th – Sunday 19th August, Steven will be setting up on the newly opened Smashbox Cosmeticscounter in Boots to shoot with consumers from 10am – 4pm.
Consumers will be encouraged to book through a central booking email to get a much-coveted slot to have their makeup done by Smashbox Cosmetics before being shot by Steven in a custom-built “studio” on counter.
Following the shoot, consumers will receive a USB of professionally shot images that Steven has taken to keep, print and share digitally with friends and family.
For those who aren’t lucky enough to get a booking with Steven during the exclusive in-store photo event, we will also have one of our travelling Smashbox Cosmetics Photobooths popping up on counter for the weekend. After having their makeup done, consumers will be encouraged to create their own photoshoot in the booth with friends, or have a moment in the spotlight alone.
This event is the first of six around the country to celebrate our ongoing retail partnership with Boots nationwide.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, to celebrate Smashbox Cosmetics launching in Boots St David’s Centre, Cardiff; on Tuesday 14th August every hour on the hour from 11am-4pm we will be giving away 10 of our coveted try it kits!

About Smashbox Cosmetics
Long before Smashbox Cosmetics was created, its founders, Dean and Davis Factor, were becoming legends as ambassadors of style in Los Angeles.
It began when the brothers--two very unique entrepreneurs and great-grandsons of makeup legend Max Factor--combined their talent and heritage to create Smashbox Studios in 1990. With a slew of starlets passing through the studios daily, Dean and Davis were often asked to develop makeup that met the demanding needs of a photo shoot. So the two merged their skills -- Dean, a business guru with an MBA, and Davis, a leading celebrity/fashion photographer -- to create Smashbox Cosmetics in 1996.
In the years that followed, their expertise in photography, fashion and beauty turned Smashbox into a hub of Los Angeles style and culture. Smashbox Studios served as the official home to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in L.A. from 2003-2008, and high-profile film and music events continue to be held here.
Today, Smashbox Studios state-of-the-art facility is still frequented with the most important photographers, artists, celebrities and models in the industry. A-listers and influencers are regulars at the Studios, but more importantly, so are their makeup artists. This means Smashbox is always swapping insider tips, tricks and trends directly with the pros.

I'm going to be there on the Friday (hopefully) and would love to see you to! Please feel free to spread the word to other Welshies too.

Normal services resumes and I'll be back later with a post about today's nails!
