SipnShare with Illusions Cosmetics

20160604_154528

Hey guys, how was your weekend? Good I hope. I went along to the Sip & Share event with Illusions cosmetics on Saturday and discovered new makeup and a brand dedicated to women of colour!

Illusions Cosmetics is the brain child of two celebrity makeup artists and twin sisters, Denise and Janice Tunnell and has everything you need from foundations to eyeliners and lipsticks! The brand created in 2006 boasts of celebrity clientele and is most known for their lip-glosses. The brand was created for WOC in particular Black women.

The event was to meet Denise and Janice, play around with their makeup and learn a bit more about them and their journey to success. The sisters have a very impressive CV, Denise has worked with the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Megan Good, Mike Epps and movies like Hunger Games, Fast &Furious 5&7! Janice also has many films under her belt including Step Up, Fighting Temptations and Destiny’s Child! I found their story inspirational and testament to follow your dream even though your background maybe completely unrelated! They both hold degrees in Accounting & Business management and were fulltime accountants for the most part of their makeup artist journey!

After their opening address, we were free to play around with the makeup. After swatching some of their luxury lipsticks and eye dusts I must admit they are very pigmented and really pretty!

Then there was a quick Q & A with Rhia from Pride Magazine. I had a bunch of questions I wanted to ask but time did not permit urgh! After some (a lot) of pictures were taken, it was goodie bag time (filled with PreMae & Illusions Cosmetics goodies reviews to follow soon!) then home time! I had so much fun and it was great meeting the sisters and Clare from JoClare PR!

For more information on the brand, please visit the website, Illusions Beauty

I believe you can order via the PR company, contact JoClarePR for more information.

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- sarah_fynn@hotmail.com Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
