Hey Girlies, the weekend is over again-sigh!

But today is the start of a new week and it is already a great Monday for me, today I start my first job since being signed to the wonderful ACA modelling agency last week. So if anyone is in Belfast today, call down to the Dior stand at House of Fraser and come say hi!

Last week I attended a master class of the new Urban Decay collection by Jean-Michel Basquiat in the Ballymena counter in Debenhams. Every time I go to these events I always learn so much more about this brand and pick up so many new tips and tricks from the artist themselves.

If you followed my snapchat (emmajanemooney) on the night you would have seen that the counter manager - Cheyenne, show cased how to use the more neutral toned palette (Gold Griot Palette) on the eyes, while assistant manager Jamie showed us all how to create a more dramatic eye using the more colourful palette (Tenant Palette), while the both of them showed everyone how versatile this collection really is by using the SAME blush palette on both looks.

Now when a palette comes out, I am usually that crazy lady waiting to get my hands on it first thing to try it out straight away. But I wont lie when this launched I really wasn't that overly 'fussed' on it. I saw the colours and thought one is too basic and the other is too mad, I wont get enough use of them to justify ANOTHER (two) palettes. Well well well, was I wrong- now it doesn't happen too often I tell you haha.

When I had a look at them up close and actually swatched them on myself, I should have known I was wrong, because when do Urban ever get it wrong when it comes to palettes? I already knew I was going to love the looks created by both Cheyenne and Jamie.

Jamie used every colour in this palette except the purple and the dark green, now if that isn't getting use out of a palette then I don't know what is! My look was PERFECT for a festival or if you are a little adventurous then just a standard Saturday night?!
For the green spotlight in my eye he also used the 24/7 glide on eye pencil in the shade Post Punk then packed on more colour from the palette to give it that 'wow' effect, and thats exactly what it done! To finish my eye look off, he popped some of what I think is my favourite ever Urban Decay product on over the spotlight, the Heavy Metal Glitter in the shade- Distortion. I always use this in my inner corner to give some sparkle, or on top of an eyeliner to change it up a bit or what Jamie done, over the top of shadow to make it completely change a look and take it from a two to a ten- honestly everyone needs this products in their life (thats if you can get your hands on it!).

Another product that I fell in love with on the night were the Lip Toppers. We used the lipstick shade Stark Naked on me and then added this on top and WOW it made it change so much, again so perfect for any festivals or concerts coming up- SO SASSY! Mermaid vibes written allllll over this one! And loads of you agreed with me as so I got so many screen shots on this one- White lie. So like everything I've mentioned, I've linked it for you guys to shops straight away- so just click on it if you want to shop it or else call into your nearest store if that is handier for you :)

I was so kindly gifted an amazing box of goodies by Cheyenne for coming down and being a model for the evening, I had such a wonderful night I should have been giving her something haha
Thank you so much, you know me too well I love it all.

For anyone wanting to call into the Ballymena counter and try out any of the products listed deffo do, both Cheyenne and Jamie are amazing at what they do and will get you sorted with what is right for you and while your there, get matched up to the AMAZING All Nighter Foundation too- cannot live without this stuff! Or the setting spray or Heavy Metal glitter liners or the lip liners.. I could go on you get the drift haha

Thanks for reading guys, my collab with DV8 is coming this week so keep an eye out for it! Enjoy your Monday everyone :)
