An evening of pampering with Smashbox

Friday, 21 November 2014

We paired up with Smashbox educator, sales executive and all-round make-up guru, Lauren Engelbrecht, to treat our Beauty Network members to an evening of make-up tips, tricks and gifts. This exclusive event took place in Edgars at Canal Walk Cape Town, where we set up a workstation fit for any make-up lover!


The evening was all about finding the products best suited to you, in order to help you create your most perfect skin possible. “It’s about your OWN beauty,” Lauren explained – everyone wants a perfect complexion, but not everyone can go about it the same way.

After a general introduction, we got stuck in. Each lady had a mirror, tools and products in front of her, and with the help of Lauren, everyone applied their make-up step by step, using products suited to their skin’s needs. Besides for teaching us the basics, Lauren shared all her tips and tricks and we left with a new wealth of knowledge (and a beautiful little goodie bag too)!

Check out some of these before and after pics – though each of the ladies are beautiful to begin with, the right tools and products transformed them from looking pretty, to being downright gorgeous.
