One of the many reasons I’m so partial to Smashbox cosmetics is that the makeup photographs really, really well – as you’d expect of a brand with this heritage. Born out of the Smashbox Photo Studios in LA, they really care about how the products perform in different lights and how they look on camera – it’s why I love wearing Halo, both the liquid and powder varieties, on nights out.
If you’re a regular reader of the blog you’ll know I was recently treated to the full Smashbox experience and it has given me some really lovely memories. Now you can make some happy memories of your own as the Smashbox team are running a fab on-counter event at Arnotts in Dublin.
If you haven’t visited the counter recently, you’re in for a treat. Around this time last year they gave it a makeover and installed – a global first for Smashbox – a shiny new, and permanent, photo booth.
Book a (complimentary) makeover for you and your bestie with the beauty crew, then ‘step on set’ to have your photo taken in the booth. I’ve done something similar before – those are my pics above – and had a hoot, not to mention picking up a load of beauty tips along the way. You’ll also be able to share your pics on Facebook or Twitter if you’re so inclined, or mail them to yourself to update your profiles later!
Just call the Smashbox counter in Arnotts on 01 805 0400 to treat yourself and a pal. If you do go, tweet me your pics (I’m @fluffyblog) – I’d love to see how you get on!
