A day with Collection Cosmetics

Last Friday, I went to Lovebox with Collection Cosmetics. Collection is one of my favourite high street brands so getting to spend the day with them and have a complete sneak peek of their upcoming pro range was really fun.

We started the day with champagne breakfast at London Grind to hear all about the new professional inspired range from Collection.

I think that the everyday make-up lover is really starting to adapt more pro make-up artist techniques now that we have so much access to tips and tricks on social media. This in mind, Collection have created a more professional inspired range for launch this summer. What’s great about these is the fact that they allow the everyday make-up lover to explore and experiment with pro techniques without having to spend a fortune.¬†The new collection is ideal for a younger girl, each item emblazoned with hashtags to encourage sharing their thoughts on social media.

Blush and Glow Palette

I posted a photo of this to Instagram and someone commented that it looks more premium than high street. I totally agree. An ideal base quad, this features four shades: a bronze and illuminator to contour, a dusky terracotta for a natural blush and a bright pink for a flush. I wore this on the day and it lasted through the heat, photographing really well too.

Contour Kit Highlight and Sculpt

If blusher isn’t your thing, you’ll prefer the simple Contour Kit for adding shape and definition to your face. The pans are larger in this than the bronzer and illuminator in the Blush and Glow Palette.

Conceal and Light Like a Pro

Any budding make-up artists will really love this palette. With 8 colour correcting cream pigments, you can create a completely flawless base and really play with contouring. Alongside some classic skin shades there are also yellow, lilac and mint pigments to correct blue, red or dull tones in the skin.

Your Style Your Mood

Something I haven’t seen before, this palette contains two mini palettes¬†for an emerald or a plum smoky eye. There’s a mixture of shimmer and matte shades to play with and they’re all netural enough to mix and match.

Face The Day

My favourite of the bunch, this is a simple palette with everything in it to keep you made up for the day. There’s a huge illuminator, a bronzer and blush, then four shimmer eyeshadow shades spanning from a daytime nude to an evening smoky. I imagine that this will be one of the most popular pieces from the collection.

Alongside a bounty of make-up, I was delighted with my first ever pieces from Boohoo. As Lovebox was the first festival I’d been to I wanted to be a complete hippy princess for the day so I opted for the Becca Batwing Border Smock dress and this little tasselled bag. That bag looks tiny but I managed to fit the kitchen sink in there!
