A few weeks ago I attended the Norwich Bloggers event hosted by three lovely bloggers Hannah, Justine and Courtney, at the Aroma Café on Upper King Street, Norwich. I'd never been to the venue before but it was a lovely café/bar with the most amazing cocktails on offer! There were many floors to the venue and one of the rooms had been hired out entirely for the Norwich Blogger meet.
This meet was Halloween themed, so there were lots of yummy Halloween cupcakes to go around (obviously I ate mine before I photographed it.. silly me). Charlie Long (@LongMakeup), a trained makeup artist, showed us two different makeup looks which would be great for fancy dress. The first look featured a lovely wearable red eyeshadow and the second was a 'Poison Ivy' look. Charlie was so lovely and went into great detail about how she was applying each product and gave us some great tips as well! She loves using Mac and Urban Decay, so I left the event with a 'wish list' as long as my arm!

The 'Red' Makeup Look:

Products Used:
- Marble Brow Palette for the Eyebrows

The Poison Ivy Makeup Look:

Products Used:
- Mac Prep and Prime
- Eyeshadow Shields (These things are amazing if your eyeshadow tends to fall down your face)
- Urban Decay Primer Potion (anti ageing)
