Mother’s Day, a special day for us to dedicate our time to and celebrate these amazing women in our lives. Take this moment to show that amazing lady how much you appreciate everything she has ever done for you and give her the pampering she truly does deserve.
My Mum has always been a huge inspiration for me. She raised me alone from day one and all the way through those troublesome years! She has taught me that anybody can overcome anything and she honestly does deserve more than the entire world.
To show thanks to our incredible role models, the lovely people at MetQuarter Liverpool arranged the most perfect Mother's Day pamper evening. A handful of bloggers and our Mums were invited to sip on some prosecco whilst being treated to express treatments from Urban Calm and Sassoon. Before that, off to Illamsqua we went…
On arrival, my Mum and I were invited into Illamasqua where we were greeted by the most beautiful makeup artists! We each had our own who, with the flick of a magic makeup brush, made us look fabulous!
As I already had a full face of makeup, my lovely makeup artist, Chloe, pulled out all the stops and created the most blinding statement lip. At first, I was a little bit scared but I am absolutely loving how this looks, especially in the pictures and think I may be recreating this look for myself! Chloe used the “Seize” eye pencil as a lip liner which was SO creamy. This was then topped with the lipstick in “ESP”. To complete my look, she added a mixture of the world’s most blinding…stunning… highlighters!
Besides me, my mum received a full face of makeup from the most beautiful makeup artist... His eyes were stunning!!! We learnt so much along the way. The main tip being that green eyes suit purples! How beautiful and natural is this look?! A huge thanks to Illamasqua for being so accommodating and helping us feel beautiful just in time for more pampering!
Next, we ventured up to Sassoon which is located on the first floor of Met Quarter. Of course, it's a beautiful salon... We were then greeted by the staff from not only Sassoon but also Urban Calm. As well as a lovely visit from celebrity stylist Martine Alexander who talked us through the latest trends available at Met Quarter... Each piece was stunning and to top it off Martine came and had a chat with us and gave us some great tips for dressing our body shapes, which was amazing! I was speaking to her about culottes as I love the look of them but am a little nervous to try them as I have chunky thighs! However, Martine assured me that they can look great so maybe, just maybe, I will give them a try!
To end our amazing evening of arm massages, prosecco sipping and canape nibbling, my Mum received the best treatment ever! The creative director at Sassoon decided to give my Mum a full hair transformation which is something that actually was not on offer. She was treated to a lovely wash, cut and blow dry… I have not seen my Mum this happy with herself in a long time… She almost cried! How beautiful does she look guys? As we ended our experience on a high, we popped out afterwards for cocktails… Cheeky!
I would like to take this post to say a huge thank you to everybody at Met Quarter for making my Mum’s evening so special… It means the world! If any of you are ever in the area, please pop in and say hi to everybody. They are so lovely and you will always leave on such a high! Again, thank you Illamasqua, Sassoon, Urban Calm, Martine Alexander and let’s not forget Patisserie Valerie and Delifonseca who both supplied delicious cupcakes and canapés!
