EVENT || Fashion Grads Beauty Box Event

 Hey Ladies, 
This isn’t me claiming to be a beauty blogger by any means because lets be fair, as you can probably tell, I’m pretty useless at it. But that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to learn. I’ve really started getting into makeup this year and have already invested in some good quality makeup and high end brushes – which is a start, I know just need to learn how them - the difficult part. I’m going to be totally honest here, youtube makeup tutorials have became a little bit of an obsession of mine, even if I cant achieve the finished look at the end, I just love watching them.
So when Fashion Grads ran this event last week, I thought I’d go down, check it out and get some useful beauty tips of actual beauty bloggers. I definitely think I’m a long way of ever blogging about beauty, but I guess that’s a goal I’m willing to set myself.

Fashion Grads is an online resource which provides careers guidance and support to students and graduates trying to break into the fashion industry. If you’re looking to work in the fashion industry, then this is the place for you as it provides related career advice!
The Fashion Grads event took place in ‘Rift & Co.’ which is a bar in Preston. Fashion Grads had hired out the back of the bar and created a cute ‘VIP’ section for us bloggers hang out in. Free bubbly on arrival is also a perk. The alcoholic in me definitely made full use of the 2 for 1 cocktails and its safe to say I left the event feeling a little tipsy!
I’m not sure if its because I’m a total novice when it comes to beauty, but I for one didn’t even know beauty boxes existed! Basically they are like monthly magazine subscriptions, you pay for the box monthly, you don’t tend to know what’s going to come in them and they get delivered straight to your door full of the latest beauty products to try out.  
My favourite beauty box by far was the glamour box, which you also get the magazine with. Inside the box was:
