Its no lie that Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite makeup brands so when I got invited to celebrate their second birthday party in London, I jumped at the chance.
The party was held at Cafe de Paris in Central London which was honestly the prettiest place I have ever been; it was like something out of The Great Gatsby. I arrived at the venue for the first section of the evening which was Afternoon Tea where we were met with fizzy elderflower and canapés.Around the outside of the room, there were booths which were laid out with new and soon to be launched products from Makeup Revolution and its sister brands; Freedom, I love makeup and Colourless. It was so much fun learning about each brand, their products and of course swatching them all!
After trying out and lusting after all of the new products, I spent the next hour or so talking to the other bloggers and trying out their GIF making Photo Booth. I bumped into some familiar faces and met some lovely people including Annie and Brogan. Also Makeup Revolution’s founder Adam bought his pug Blondie so I spent an unhealthy amount of time with her thinking of ways I could smuggle her home because she was the cutest thing I had ever seen.
7pm quickly rolled around and the party was really getting into full swing with more canapés and cocktails (which were so scummy). We had been told that there was a special announcement so we were all excitedly waiting for the news. Adam said a lovely speech about the brand and how it has achieved great success in such a small amount of time and it was great to see how much love and effort is behind such a fantastic company. The time finally rolled around and were told what the announcement was; Makeup Artists, get excited.
Freedom are hosting a competition called #IAmFreedom, launching in April where Makeup Artists will battle it out in live challenges to win a place in the live final which will be judged by 3 celebrity judges. Four runners up will each win £1,000 and the winner will receive £10,00, a year’s supply of Freedom makeup and a year long partnership deal with Freedom! How amazing does that sound? But it gets better; on the night, team Superdrug said they would match the prizes so the runners up will receive £2,000 and the winner will win £20,000!
After all of the speeches and announcements were over, it was time to continue the party which was DJ’ed by Scott Mills from Radio 1! At the end of the night, we were gifted an amazing goody bag with lots of Revolution and Freedom goodies which I will definitely be doing a review on. Also Makeup Revolution now have an App which you can download to get news, updates and special offers!
Thank you so much Revolution and Tam Beauty for the invite, I had such a great time celebrating with you all and can’t wait to see what the next 2 years brings
