When I got to John Lewis we were all taken up to the restaurant where the event would be held. Free champagne was given to everyone taking part in the masterclass. There was also orange juice for people who didn't want to drink.
There were a couple of separate tables with brushes, various products and most importantly the NARS laptop. For those of you who haven't seen these before, the NARS laptop is this amazing product that opens like a laptop but has all NARS products in it like blusher and eyeshadow. They had these in the event before but seemed to have modified the colours around.
The lead makeup artist of the day was Anna. She was fab and demonstrated a smoky eye look on the model and gave tips along the way. After she had created the look, two sides of the room were split into two groups. One half did eyes first while the other half did face first.
I always like doing eyes first so I was glad I was on the side of the room that was doing eyes. We all had a makeup artist each on hand to help with anything we needed.
So it was now time to play with the laptop and create whatever look you wanted. As I love bright colours I was happy when I noticed that Mad Mad World had been added.
We had full access to the majority of NARS products - brushes, eyeliners, eyeshadows and more. I was really enjoying playing with all the colours and in no time I was creating the look I wanted.
At the end of the masterclass we were all given a face chart on what products we used and we were then taken back to the shop to buy any items we wanted.
Here is the look I created.

As I have a lot of NARS products I only decided to get two products on the day which were, the 42 Blending Brush and the Pore Refining Primer.
The gift that came with the ticket was amazing. I got a full sized Jungle Red lipstick, mini sizes of Deep Throat Blusher, Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, Primer, Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner, Tinted Moisturiser, Optimal Brightening Concentrate and Makeup Remover.
I also took photos of two of the latest NARS collections
I enjoyed this event as much as the last one. I really enjoyed having fun with all the products and creating the look I wanted.
