Graduate Fashion Week with Bourjois


Hi lovelies! In between my last post and now I have officially finished university! That means my blog post will be a lot more regular! Anyway, if you follow me on twitter you'll know I got chosen by Bourjois to head backstage at GFW for a day!

I spent the day with the lovely Bourjois PR team and Beth Strong, another blogger (you can see her blog here). The day began with some breakfast and locating the Bourjois stand, where I booked in my manicure and mini makeover with the nail technicians and make up artists. We were booked in to see the Liverpool fashion show but before hand we got the chance to head backstage with the head make up artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis

It was amazing meeting such a high-profile make up artist, who beautifies stars such as Paloma Faith. Lan showed us all the new products that Bourjois are launching for summer and we got to try some out ourselves. I absolutely love the Parisian Summer range- all the products are going to compliment tanned skin! She also gave us her tips on concealing under the eyes, using Bourjois Java Rice Powder and Little Round Pot Light Eyeshadow in no1. I also found out which Bourjois products I should used for contouring, and I'll definitely be picking up Cream Blush 04 and 05 like she suggested! I also tried out Bourjois' Metallic Blue Eyeliner which is so on-trend at the moment and I couldn't recommend it enough! I was surprised how awesome the Rouge Edition Aqua Laque lipsticks are! They're advertised as water-light and that's exactly how I'd describe them, they don't feel like you're wearing anything at all and they're definitely not sticky.

After the backstage action we got to watch the Liverpool fashion show and there were some amazing pieces. I loved the amount of white that was used in the collections as well as the fringing in Cherise Belle-Smith's all-white-errythang collection (fuelling my 70s style obsession). I loved the bubblegum pink outfits by Rachael Tsai and Beth and I thought the most interesting had to be Curtis Fullman's where he used a hell of a lot of hair!


After the fashion show we went to get lunch- there were street food stands amongst the exhibition which is definitely my thing. I went for a Crispy Pork Baboy- a Filipino inspired BBQ dish and it was divine. We then headed up to the Bourjois stand to get our nails done. The lovely Nikki Dury painted mine and I picked a colour which matched my lips -Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in 07 Nude-ist and Bourjois' new La Laque nailpolish in 7 Lycheers.

Beth and I explored the venue after this and we came across the Cocio chocolate milk van and managed to grab ourselves a couple of bottles which were so so yummy.

Overall I had such a fun and amazing day with Bourjois and fell even more in love with their products. Bourjous kindly gave me a wonderful goody bag with some of their new products so keep checking back for my swatches, looks and reviews soon!
