It's not every day that you can secure a place at a Chanel Beauty event, even more so when it's hosted by the amazing Alessandra Steinherr. I haven't had much interaction with Chanel Beauty before, except purchasing an eye cream once, so I was excited to get a place on the #CreateYourself masterclass with Alessandra Steinherr and Zoe Taylor at the Chanel Beauty counter in Selfridges Manchester.

I've been a fan of Alessandra Steinherr since reading an article about her journey to improve her health, struggling with my weight since being a teenager it was so inspiring to read about the steps she took to improve her health and wellbeing. I was gutted when I missed the launch of her lipstick in Liverpool and missed out on getting my hands on her lipstick and meeting her (damn work!), so of course, I was super excited to get an email saying I had a spot at her masterclass with Zoe Taylor and Chanel Beauty in Manchester!

Chanel has always been a brand that I've admired but never properly purchased from, everything from the products to the packaging is just all so lust-worthy. The only thing I have tried from them is the Hydra Beauty eye gel a couple of years ago, it helped to hydrate my under eyes whilst minimizing dark circles, combating puffiness and fine lines. I stopped using it to test out another eye cream (I always seem to have them stocking up as eye creams take forever to get through and I have to use them for a decent amount of time before I can pass comment on them) and need to pick it back up when my current one runs out! I've also been eyeing up the Rouge Coco and Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks for as long as I've known about Chanel Beauty.

Of course, I couldn't go to Selfridges Manchester without visiting the lovely Kate from Armani and I may or may not have left the counter with a couple of goodies! I mean it'd be rude not to! I arrived at the Chanel counter to the lovely Alessandra and Zoe chatting and everyone chatting with the staff from the counter. Every member of staff that I spoke to at the counter was so friendly and knowledgeable about the brand and the products, for me that is a major selling point when it comes to shopping at a new brand as it really shows me how passionate people are about the brand they work for and how much they believe in the products they are selling!

It was finally time to grab a drink and take a seat ready for the masterclass, I managed to bag a front row seat by Alessandra. Zoe and Alessandra started by discussing some of their favourite products from Chanel and why they loved them so much, I'm not gonna lie all the talk of getting easy, glowing, bronzed skin with Chanel made me want to go and buy all the products to transform my pasty, pale skin to look like I've just come back from an exotic holiday. Once they'd talked through their top products, it was time for a Q&A and makeover. One lucky lady got picked out and Zoe transformed her skin to give her skin a beautiful, bronzy glow, perfect for all this beautiful sunny weather we've been having lately.

Zoe talked us through the products whilst she used a combination of the Soleil Tan De Chanel and Les Beiges bronzer to create that stunning natural sun-kissed glow makeup look. Soleil Tan De Chanel is the product that whenever I speak to anyone about Chanel, it's the first thing people mention. It's famous among celebrities, bloggers, beauty insiders, and pretty much everyone. It's lightweight, buildable and settles to a velvet finish making it perfect to wear in this unusually hot and humid weather this summer as you can wear it on its own and on top of your favourite base products. 

Once the makeup look was complete, we all got the chance to meet Alex and have a picture with her (yes I nearly died!). Now I am going to fangirl for a moment because I have been continually inspired by Alex and everything she has done, it was honestly incredible to be sitting in the same room as her, let alone sat on the same couch, chatting, vlogging and talking pictures! Of course, everyone wanted a picture and chat with her so I had a quick chat, took some pictures and vlogged a little bit with her before I got up to give someone else the chance to have a picture and chat before the next group came in for their masterclass. It was then my chance to browse the counter and pick up some goodies. 

On our seats, the lovely people from Chanel Beauty Manchester had organised some little goody bags for everyone attending! Inside not only had they gifted us an amazing black velvet Chanel makeup bag (that you can't buy online or at the counters!), they'd also included a bunch of makeup and fragrance goodies for us to test out (I'm obsessed with the Le Volume De Chanel mascara sample I've been testing out since the event). And as if that wasn't generous enough, they have also offered us an hour makeover experience session with one of the amazing counter makeup artists at a date of our choice. I'm definitely going back at the end of the month for as they've got a new collection launching and I want to go back and get that mascara and one of their lipsticks!

I had such an incredible evening with Chanel, Alex and Zoe. It was such a great introduction to Chanel Beauty and I can't wait to go back for my one to one session at the counter and pick up more bits to try out. Is this the beginning of another beauty addicition?!

Have you tried anything from Chanel?
