#SEVENTEENBloggerNetwork Event with Katie Snooks

Having the opportunity to meet with brands and other bloggers has always been something I've loved since starting my blog, so when the email invitation to an event with SEVENTEEN dropped into my inbox, I jumped at the chance. So last week, Anna and I jumped on a train, and made our way to London for an evening of makeup and blogging chat.


Once we arrived at the venue (we may have got a bit lost), we were greeted by Brogan, one of the lovely girls from the brand, and taken up to the room where there was plenty of makeup, drinks and bloggers. The event was centred around three talks -  one from blogger and YouTuber Katie Snooks, one from YouTube guru Rollo Goldstaub, and makeup artist Vanessa Guallar, with free time to play around with the new releases in between.






There were a few different makeup tutorials by Vanessa running throughout the evening, for each of SEVENTEEN's Autumn/Winter makeup trends. Anna and I watched the Sci-Fi Skin tutorial, all about how to achieve super glowy and highlighted skin when your skin is feeling a bit dull, which I really enjoyed. I'm a great lover of a bit of highlight and glowy skin, and hate the dullness winter brings, so any tips on how to combat that was welcome. The tutorial included using Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter, a product I've used and enjoyed in the past, but it was interesting to see the different ways Vanessa used the product. I can't wait to implement some of her tips and tricks.




The lovely Rollo from YouTube gave us a great talk full of some really useful advice about growing blogs and YouTube channels. As someone who has now been blogging relatively consistently for about a year, I'm interested in making my blog the best it can be. Hopefully I can put some of his advice into action soon.

The highlight of my evening for sure was the talk from Katie Snooks. Katie has been a blogger and YouTuber for seven years - SEVEN years, can you imagine - so I sat avidly listening to all of her top tips for growing my little corner of the internet to the best it can be. Katie gave a really motivating speech, with plenty of savvy points that I need to put into practice. Let's hope it shows soon!


On leaving, we were lucky enough to be given gift bags that featured some of the products for one of the five new looks for Autumn/Winter. I chose the Bold Lips bag. Now I'm sure you know, I'm a big lipstick fan, so the chance to try some of the new bright matte lipsticks from SEVENTEEN was just too good an opportunity to pass up. I received four of the new Mega Matte lipsticks, Roses are Red, Violet Summer, Back to the Fuchsia and I Lilac It A Lot. These are all stunning colours, but I'll admit that I'm most excited about trying I Lilac It A Lot. Look out for that in a future post, I'm sure it'll feature soon.






Thank you to the girls at SEVENTEEN for inviting me along to this event, I really enjoyed it! Have you tried any products from SEVENTEEN? Were you at the event?

Love Lexie
