LOOK: London Fashion Week & MAC Event ~! Meeting Terry Barber ♥

Photobucket

Hello everyone! I had a wonderful time from a MAC backstage preview of the London Fashion Week for A/W 2011 yesterday. I was able have a glimpse of future makeup trends, watch Terry Barber work his makeup magic, watch Betty Jackson's runway show, get a makeover, and meet a few beautiful bloggers! I really had a wonderful time. Keep reading for my story, my makeover, and some photos! ♥

Terry gave us a demonstration of doing smokey sultry sculpted makeup with coloured pigments (red and yellow)! At first I was skeptical, but by the end I was in awe at his work. He is amazing at what he does and he is so down to earth. ♥

After watching the demonstration, we watched the quick Betty Jackson runway event. Her collection had recurring themes of Red, Beige/Camel, Black, Black with White Flowers, Fur and Lace. These are some of her items that I would wear! Some others looked a bit over-the-top for me.

...and after that I was able to get a smokey eye makeover from one of the artists. This is what she did!

What do you think? ♥
And by the way, have you noticed my now-black hair? :) I dyed it back to dark brown on Friday night as my roots were showing!

After the makeover I had some bonding/randomness time with fellow beauty bloggers. They're a bunch of really nice, funny people, and generally a pleasure to be around. It was great to meet them all! You have to check out their blogs!! ♥
