#NEXTBEAUTY Event, Covent Garden



Last week I was very kindly invited to the Next beauty event, which took place at the Ice Tank in Covent Garden (i.e. the most Instagram-able location I've ever come across). I've been a fan of Next's beauty line for a while - especially their perfumes - so I was excited to preview their new pieces. I went by myself which is always a bit nerve-wracking but luckily everyone was super approachable and friendly.

The new line features a wide range of goodies including makeup, nail polish, fragrance, bath/body products and cosmetic bags. I loved the scented alphabet candles, which smelt delicious and gave the room a real cosy ambiance. Don't you think they look incredibly luxe, too? I would never have guessed they were only £4.





We spent the first hour or so sampling products and watching the makeup artists work their magic. There was also eyebrow threading and manicures being offered to anyone who fancied a bit of a pamper.



Later on in the evening we were treated to a live makeup tutorial by the gorgeous Lydia Elise Millen, who created both a day and night look using products from the Make Me Beautiful range. The daytime look featured dewy skin, a touch of liquid liner, nude lips and lots of highlighter. I think we all fell in love with the Highlighting Chubby Stick - so pigmented! - as well as the lipstick. Unfortunately I couldn't stay for the night look as I had to leave to catch my train, but I did manage to snap a close-up of Lydia's makeup before I left - isn't she stunning?



Overall I had a lovely evening - a big thank you to Next for inviting me along and creating a wonderful event for us bloggers! Below I've linked some of the ladies I met if you'd like to take a look at their sites.
