We were introduced to @EllenLand Hannah, who has just started working for the community.
We were served champagne/juice and there were some nibbles on the table, plus cake!!! 🧁 Yummy!!! 😋😋😋 I was wondering if there would be cake or not, thankfully there was and I ate one in honour of all of us, beauty members of this wonderful community! 🏆 🏅
The first thing we did was to learn our names, what we love the most about the community and share our favourite new purchase. EllenL said she’s been working for Debenhams for 5 years and together with TazK, who joined at the start of the community, they run the platform. Interesting or not, their favourite new product is the YSL new fragrance, Libre.
The day involved beauty brand specialists showcasing and demonstrating their new releases. YVES SAINT LAUREN, URBAN DECAY and KAT VON D were the brands invited to introduce Libre, Naked Honey Palette and True Portrait Foundation. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
Firstly I went to YSL and was surprised to know that Márcio, who is YSL national MUA is Brazilian!!! I can’t deny it was sooo nice to talk to him in Portuguese, and I think I spent most of the time chatting with him. ☺️
If you speak a second language, you’ll know that as good as you are in it, you’ll never be able to fully express yourself in a second language as you do in your mother language.
He’s been working 5 years for YSL. He is very enthusiastic, good looking and I loved meeting him. I had my bronzer and highlighter reapplied to give me the Libre look. 😍 ✨

Next I went to UD to swatch the most expected palette, Naked Honey. I had my eyes done by Kirsty. She extended the eyeshadowin a wing shape. I wish I could have her doing my eyes every day! She is gorgeous, very cool and talented. She has joined UD nearly five years ago and is a senior artist since.
Kirsty from UDIt was time for a Live video. EllenL and Tazk have a natural talent for it and make it sound very easy, but deep inside I was nervous. I am a very spontaneous person and love talking to people, taking pictures... but the cameras make me nervous when I have to speak. I don’t like my voice and the way I talk. Specially in English 😬😜
Thank you TazK for being patient on recording me twice, as I felt very nervous doing it! I bet no one would think that of me, right? 🤔
Last, but not least, I met the lovely Anna who works for KVD. She colour matched me with the new foundation and surprisingly told me I’m not a neutral undertone, but warm. I had the foundation applied on my chin and I can say that it fells very lightweight as if I was wearing nothing at all. The foundation is a liquid-to-powder formula that flexes with your skin, so you have to give it a really good shake and squeeze. I’m really excited to get a sample and try it in my full face. She also did the eyeliner on me and I was so impressed how quick and easy it was for her! I envy her talent! She is a low speaker, very confident and knowledgeable about the brand. If you’re in London, you can meet her in Westfield.
Ellen and Taz look very young and I’m sure they are, but they are very professional. I’m really impressed with their talent and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to meet them in person. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🤩🤩🤩
Time to say goodbye. I couldn’t leave without a selfie 🤳
And yes, they look prettier in person! 🥰
Thank you for organising this fun, relaxed, informal and enjoyable day to celebrate us and the Beauty Club Community 1st Birthday!!! See you next year!!! ❤️❤️❤️
