I have to admit to being a smudge behind on my posting schedule. Life has just been beyond hectic, so, in the thought of better late than never, I thought I would share some of the awesome events I’ve been to over the past couple of weeks.

About 10 days ago I was very kindly invited to a night of Urban Decay beauty held in Edinburgh’s Roxburghe’s hotel. I had never been into the hotel before, but I’ve been super curious as it’s located right in Charlotte Square, one of the city’s most beautiful addresses! So, after being ushered in out of the rain, and plied with a rather delicious cocktail, I snuck into one of the hotel’s conference rooms where I was met with perhaps the largest displays of Urban Decay makeup I’ve ever come across!

The evening was hosted by Debenhams and makeup artist Danielle Roberts, and was all about getting seriously glam in time for Christmas. Half the room was filled with tables absolutely stocked with Urban Decay makeup, and it was seriously difficult not coming away with absolutely everything!

Getting to play around with the makeup was so much fun, and you could tell how excited everyone was to be there!

The girls from Urban Decay were there to answer any question you could think of, as well as to apply the makeup you wanted to try, and they couldn’t have been nicer! As I debated between lipgloss colours, I enjoyed a hand massage from the lovely beauticians from the Roxburghe Hotel’s spa, and then it was time to sit down for the makeup masterclass.

Considering most of the time I spend on Youtube is watching beauty videos, getting to see Danielle Roberts in action was a complete treat! Using the new Vice 4 Palette (you can see my review of it here) Danielle got to work on the gorgeous model, creating a stunning smoky eye look.


It was great to see such a talented makeup artist at work, and it gave me some really great tips and ideas for my own makeup looks. There was a chance to ask Danielle any questions the audience had, and my Urban Decay wish list has grown even longer than before! As if the evening wasn’t lovely enough, we left clutching goody bags kindly donated by Debenhams which included the most adorable dinky lipsticks and perfume samples!

Thank you so much to The Roxburghe Hotel, Debenhams, Urban Decay and Danielle Roberts for having me.
