Glo & Ray's #SummerGlo Event

Glo & Ray is a relativey new beauty brand whose high quality make-up range has slowly but surely left me enchanted. I've had the opportunity to try quite a few of Glo & Ray's beauty products, and I'm always left wanting more! Last week, Glo & Ray hosted a little get together in London to celebrate the relase of some new products. They brought together a handful of beauty bloggers to witness their range being used to create a variety of different make-up looks - all inspired by popular trends.

At the moment Glo & Ray's makeup range is only available online (link here). Although online shopping is really convenient, sometimes it's nice to get to know a brand and their shade range in person. So it was a real treat to be able to see all of Glo & Ray's products in person. I was really impressed with the look and feel of the Nebulae Foundation, and as per ususal I was left entranced by the brand's gorgeous range of lipsticks!

Whilst indulging in some seriously delicious canapés, I had the chance to chat with the lovely Kinga from Rock This Runway as well as Karis from Beauty by Karis. It's always nice meeting fellow bloggers and it was particularly nice to meet some fellow fans of Glo & Ray! I can tell you now, I got some great product recommendations.

Once we'd had the opportunity to chat and take some photos the wonderful make-up artist, Bella, started to demonstrate different makeup looks featuring Glo & Ray's makeup. The model for the evening was Focus PR's intern Charlotte - who I think was absolutely perfect for the job! She looked wonderful in every look, but I particularly liked how she looked wearing Glo & Ray's Mariposa Quartet Eyeshadow in Violet Emotion.

Once we'd seen the professional in action we then had the chance to use Glo & Ray's make-up for ourselves to recreate one of the make-up looks that we'd be shown. I must admit, I wasn't as disciplined as I should have been and I may have spent a bit too much time trying to take pretty photos of the makeup. However, I think Kinga, Karis and I did an okay job trying to recreate the soft, peachy summer look featuring one of Glo & Ray's new lipsticks in the shade Coral Whisper.

All in all I had a wonderful evening! I owe Glo & Ray and Focus PR a big thank-you for inviting me along. And if you'd like to see more of Glo & Ray's makeup in action then keep your eyes peeled for a couple of upcoming blogposts where I put the products I was very kindly gifted in my goodybag to use. Spoiler alert - things may get a little bit colourful!



  1. So many events are in London which is so frustrating for northern bloggers such as myself as I was invited but train tickets are pretty pricy for just one event :( x
