As one of the spa judges, for the past few weeks I'd been testing out lots of lovely products from nail polishes to body care, tans and tools and I had a ball. It was like what I do for the blog, but amped up big time. We had a score card and everything, ready to battle it out for the best in beauty this year. The spa and skincare judges had a table discussion where we chatted about things we loved, things we didn't love, tips, tricks and got to try out even more products and managed to leave there with a wish list of products.
We filmed a little interview where I hope I didn't talk a load of shite and I'm now in the phase where I physically cringe when I think of things I said. I'm waiting to reach the next phase where I don't remember what I said and can make up memories where I was very articulate and witty.
The judges from all four categories, makeup, haircare, skincare and spa all assembled like a beauty army in the afternoon and we'd a photo shoot. So I needed my makeup to look good and to stay put all day. This was not the time to test out new stuff. This was a day where I needed to use products that I trusted, that I loved, that would make me feel lovely and would look nice in photos. And because I was having major pains in my stomach from nerves, I thought I'd film me putting the makeup on to distract me! So behold my Get Ready With Me video where I put on a natural looking visage, wear pyjamas, have a scarf casually sitting on the chair behind me, but it doesn't matter! A fab day was had and that was the main thing. Oh, and my face stayed put all day!
