We've all been there - a sales assistant applies a product to your face flawlessly, you buy the lovely products, then you go home and try (but fail) to recreate the look. Thankfully, now you can eliminate step three with a handy in-store makeup lesson from Bobbi Brown.
Held at all Bobbi Brown counters in Fenwick, these lessons give you valuable one-to-one time with a makeup artist who will talk you through what they're doing in thorough detail, share their expert tips and tricks and fill in a face chart for you, detailing everything they used and where they used it.
Being a self confessed beauty junkie this sounded right up my street, so I headed to Fenwick Bond Street for a lesson with Bobbi Brown Pro Artist Hannah Martin....
Known for her beautiful work at Kate Middleton's royal wedding to Prince William, Hannah is a whizz with a makeup brush and her enthusiasm and warmth eases me comfortably into my seat; a situation that somebody as awkward as me would normally find intimidating.
After a chat about the kind of look I'm after (smoky eye, all day, everyday), Hannah pulls out the gorgeous Long Wear Beige Gold Eye Kit, a beautiful must-have collection exclusive to Fenwick. The kit contains a Mini Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Beige Gold, a Mini Smokey Eye Mascara in Black, a Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink, a Mini Ultra Fine Eye Liner Brush and an Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover; meaning you're set for a variety of looks.
Hannah doesn't waste any time and gets straight to work, proving that I'm in more than capable hands.
