Mama got her sass back – Style Birmingham event

“All things beauty”

Anyone who is into fashion and beauty will be well acquainted with Harvey Nichols, the luxurious British department store which is literally like playground for make up gurus across the country. Add Style Birmingham to the mix and you have ingredients for the perfect beauty fest. And by oh boy did they deliver.. in style! 

How to tutorials, Harvey Nichols prosecco, freebies, beauty, music  – Erm yes please! I didn’t think it was possible for make up to take all your stresses away. I was wrong, I left Harvey Nichols feeling like a million dollars. 

If you read my blog post “More Than Just A Mummy” you’ll know that I went through a phase of losing my identity after having my now 7 month old. I’m a girl who loves to look glam, slip on some sexy heels and grab the world by the whats it’s. So I want to thank Style Birmingham for helping me to get my mojo back. A night of being pampered and spoilt with goodies was exactly what the doctor ordered.

For those of you who don’t know Style Birmingham is “an editorially-led lifestyle brand for everything stylish in Birmingham”. There site is jam packed with fashion, beauty, food and things to do. I was lucky enough to meet the managing director, Andrew, who was extremely hospitable and most definitely fits the bill for the director of Style Birmingham.

What did I get up to?

So, on arrival I was greeted by a complimentary glass of bubbly. So straight away style Birmingham won me over.

I just want to add that not only was it a beauty event but a perfect opportunity to network with like minded people. I attended by myself and I felt so comfortable from start to finish (in fact I think I was the ‘last man standing” haha). I quickly started talking to customers about their experiences with Style Birmingham events and every single customer stated that the “hospitality and customer service was spot on”, “My consultation was really helpful and gave me clarity on my skin type”.  I whole heartedly agree that the service provided was 5*. 

Marc Jacobs masterclass 

Marc Jacobs pride themselves on customers using their own creativity to adapt make up to suit their own individual style. Right up my street.

“I see beauty in many things and I am attracted to all sorts of imperfection, to style, to confidence or experimentation. It’s unexpected and surprises you.” (Marc Jacob)

The super cute set up was complimented with glossy Marc Jacobs make up brochures on each seat. I was blown away by the Marc Jacobs Workshop. I must admit I’ve never used their range. However their variety of colours and versatility for differing skin tones is amazing! I’m no make up expert so this was the perfect opportunity to ask all the questions regarding my own skin.

Have you ever been to a beauty event surrounded by make up gurus with perfectly formed make up and been intimidated to ask questions as you come across as the beginner LOL! Well this was the complete opposite. The master class opened up discussing between customers regarding their own make up queries. 

Following the master class we were directed to the Marc Jacobs counter where we were offered consultations by Marc Jacobs experts tailored to our skin type. 

Other brands included: Fenty, Stila, Espa and Hourglass. I hadn’t heard of Hourglass prior to attending this event. However, I had a masterclass with a  gorgeous make up artists who listened to my preferences, observed my style of make up and matched me with the perfect colour. “Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss” in Origami priced at £25 which is reasonable considering you get a generous amount. The lip gloss is high shine (which I love) and long lasting. Thank you Hourglass for my perfect match.

And If that wasn’t enough 

Each customer was gifted with a super cute gift box with a booklet of offers to redeem after the event, including a free Marc Jacobs makeover, a luxurious complimentary Rodial facial and two cocktails for £10 in the bar, to be redeemed by 30 December.

So what was the price for all this amazingness you ask? For a glass of Bubbly, free samples, a master class, consultations, free facials and more it’s £10. HOWEVER, that’s redeemable against purchases, so if you want to freshen up your make up bag for winter it’s free.
