Elle Beauty School At Debenhams Cardiff Review06:00
|I've got a golden ticket|
Arriving at Debenhams finding the YSL set up was easy and there was about 12 area's set up with make-up trays already assembled.
A couple of the staff came round with make-up remover for us to remove our make-up and a make-up artist came round to help us find the right shade of foundation for me which was B80. Mine took little longer to do which I took on the chin but knew it was because my skin shade as they had to find the right one.
After waiting for a few minutes we were all there and Sophie introduced herself and told us what the next hour would bring. iPad's were set up showing the latest trends and all we had to do was follow the video using the colors in front of us.

|My make-up area|
|I won't give up the day job|
Okay, last straw.
I was not impressed by this comment one little bit and told her so. The first PR girl looked liked she wanted the ground to swallow her up and looked horrified and apologized. First of all you have an event which clearly was not designed to cater for all skin shades and then you hire staff who clearly have no tact what-so-ever.

|Some of the treats on the day|
Overall I really like the idea of an expert showing you how to do the latest looks but feel that consideration has to be put in place that not everyone turning up will have a fair complexion. Setting up an event & having just the 'popular' shades of foundations on hand means you were never really catering to anyone else in the beginning.
Anyway I did pass on my feedback to Elle to which I received no response what-so-ever so I think we know where they stand on the issue!
