Fenty Face at Harvey Nichols

Last week, I was kindly invited down to the Fenty Beauty counter at Harvey Nichols to have a 'Fenty Face' makeover. I spoke briefly about Fenty Beauty earlier this month after I'd had the chance to try out a couple of the first released products and I have to say I've been really interested in the subsequent collections - the latest release is the Holiday collection which came out the day before my appointment.

On arrival at the counter I was greeted by the lovely Lisa who was going to be doing my makeup. She gave me a brief introduction to the brand, before removing all my makeup and setting about giving me a Fenty makeover. As I always wear the same makeup, I thought it would be nice to try a different look, and I really liked the makeup that Lisa was wearing, all about the skin with a bright lip, so we decided to go for that.

Lisa tried three different Pro Filt'r foundation shades to get the perfect match, after moisturising and priming my skin with the Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer (£24) and settled on the perfect colour which almost disappeared into my skin. I have forgotten the number of it, annoyingly, so I will have to visit the counter and ask, but I think it was light 140. This was applied with a foundation brush and finished with the Precision Makeup Sponge, £13 - possibly the softest makeup sponge I've ever felt, it felt like a cloud! The foundation is £26 and was a lovely light texture which provided an excellent matte coverage. To finish, Lisa used a touch of concealer and Invisimatte Blotting Powder, £24, to set the perfect base.

I'm not great at contouring but the Fenty Match Sticks, £21, make it easy. Simply drawing in the contour lines and blending them out with the sponge is all that is needed! They blended so smoothly and didn't leave any harsh lines on the skin. To finish, Lisa used a touch of Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Metal Moon, £26, on the cheekbones and inner corners of the eyes. Since we decided to leave the eyes quite plain, Lisa used a shade from the sold out Galaxy collection palette (pictured top) to add a little depth and then used mascara on the top and bottom lashes. To finish, she applied the new-in Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored, £19, which is genuinely the most comfortable liquid lipstick I've ever tried. I had quite dry lips at the time and was worried it would make them worse, but actually it was softening, moisturising and gave the most amazing colour!

Fenty Beauty counters are based exclusively at Harvey Nichols throughout the UK - they offer complimentary makeovers as well as being able to introduce you to the brand, match you to a foundation shade or recommend products or tools. If you don't live near a Harvey Nichols, you can also shop online. I certainly have a hit list of products I will look to invest in over the next few months; the foundation, beauty sponge and that liquid lip are high on my list!
