Girls Night In (inc makeup, product details and cocktail recipes!) 🍸

Some of you might know that I’ve recently completed my SVQ Level 2 in Applying Makeup.  To keep practicing what I’ve learnt, I invited the girls round to be my ‘models’…..in exchange for Prosecco and Gin of course!!

With such different styles and tastes, as well as face and eye shapes – I was able to do a range of looks.  I’ve posted them below along with details on what products I used.  No filters or editing has been done to the pics so you can see a true resemblance, but bear with me as they were just taken with my phone!!

🍸 Keep scrolling if you want the cocktail recipe that I bribed them with too 😀 🍸

…..And as promised, here is a tasty little cocktail courtesy of Gordon’s!!


Gordon’s Raspberry Fizz

  • 15ml Gordon’s® Sloe gin
  • 2 teaspoons raspberry
  • purée
  • Champagne/Prosecco
  • Raspberries to garnish

How to make

Use a blender until the raspberries are turned into a smooth purée.  Carefully spoon the purée into a champagne glass, add the Gordon’s gin and top up with champagne. Garnish with fresh or frozen raspberries.

Serve in a champagne flute.

Careful as when you add the champagne to the gin and purée combo, it does fizz up quite quickly!! So beware!!

Enjoy xx
