Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Sparkle Shadow and Liners

If you follow me over on Instagram or watch my weekly vlogs, you may well be aware that last week I attended a rather fancy event all in the name of Bobbi Browns new release.

 The new Long-Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow & Liners are exclusive to House of Fraser and are the perfect two in one product, perfect to create an easy stand out eye look.

Available in five shades; Night Sky*, Thunderstorm, Sunlit Bronze*, Smokey Topaz* and Midnight Forest*, they're really quite exceptional. I've been wearing Sunlit Bronze the most as it's the colour that falls most into my day to day colour palette and although I'm not usually big on sparkle, it makes my eyes pop really nicely, worn as both a lighter liner on the top lash line and on the lid as a sheer eyeshadow and I'm almost a sparkle convert.

I was fortunate to have had my make up done for me at the event, which was held in the most surreal setting, 34 floors high overlooking the London Skyline. I was given a double line consisting of my normal Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Chocolate Brown with Sunlit Bronze on top and without blowing my own trumpet, it looked pretty damn amazing.

In line with the these super long lasting products, the perfect make up brush combination has also been launched. The Dual-Ended Cream Smudge/Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush* is a dream and having a retractable end, makes for the perfect brush to carry around in your make up bag without getting damaged. The duo ended brush makes switching from shadow to liner quick and easy, perfect in my opinion for the girl on the go or those looking to transform a day to night look in the office.

Available to buy in store at House of Fraser and online, the Dual-Ended Cream Smudge/Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush costs £31 whilst the Long-Wear Gel Sparkle Shadow & Liners cost £20 each.

Herbal Essences Clearly Naked #GetNaked

#nomakeup has become somewhat a selfie trend this past year and not a day goes by where I don't see it hashtagged somewhere online. Be it a serious image backed with confidence or something more tounge in chic, it's everywhere and although often it's said lightly and in humour, the pressure to look "perfect" is well and truly out there and I've sadly experienced it many times myself. As of recently, having no time to spend getting myself dolled up, I've had to bare all, especially on the hair front, and that's where Herbal Essences new campaign for the Clearly Naked Range suits me. 

Herbal Essences wants you to ditch this ever growing pressure and like me, embrace your natural hair with  #GetNaked. It's time to put down the curling tongs, take out the rollers and make the most of what you've got, whilst being in with the chance of winning £2,000 worth of shopping vouchers.

Simply tweet a #GetNaked un-styled, natural hair selfie to @_HerbalEssences to be in with the chance to win whilst embracing those locks.

If baring your natural state doesn't come easy to you and you need a little push in the right direction, check out Herbal Essences "Naked Truth About Dating" video here, which certainly tickled me and made me think, shedding light on what us girls and boys say and the actual truth behind it- was it really something you just chucked on or did you spend days worrying about what to wear? Did you really only spend half an hour getting ready? I know I didn't.

Herbal Essences Clearly Naked range allows you to show off your natural beauty with shampoos and styling products free of parabens, silicones or colour. Whether it's volume, shine or moisture that you're looking for, there's a shampoo and conditioner for you that will leave your hair soft and looking great and with beautiful aromas such as Fresh Mint, Grapefruit and White Tea, they're the perfect products to bare all to and #GetNaked.
