Over a month ago I was invited to the launch of Blow LTD at Debenhams in Birmingham City Centre, unfortunately due to other plans I had to decline. However, I was invited to go along at another time to see what they offer.
Need to look fabulous, fast? blow LTD is the UK’s leader in beauty services on demand, wherever and whenever you need them.

They are open from 7am until late, seven days a week and all their beauty professionals are hand-picked, tested and vetted so that you can relax knowing you’re in the very best hands.
So on Saturday the 2nd of December I headed into Birmingham City Centre where I was to attend Blow LTD to get my make up done. I knew that they were going to have their work cut out for them, after all I had literally washed and scraped back my hair.. I was sure I was going to be a challenge.
On arriving at the Blow LTD reception desk, I was quickly booked in and offered a drink whilst I waited. I thought this was a lovely gesture especially since I had turned up 30 minutes early for my appointment (thats what I get for panicking that I wouldn’t find it easily)
When 2 O’clock came around I was invited over to the make up area and was placed in the capable hands of Elysia, my make up artist for the day.
I was asked what sort of make up look I was going for and what my usual make up style was. Now lets be honest, on the average day I tend to just do my eyebrows, add some mascara and put on a nude lipstick. When I am at home I am completely bare faced and on nights out I try and make an effort but still haven’t quite mastered contouring the way I would’ve liked.
Elysia started by cleaning my face and then started work on my eyebrows, after that she then proceeded to do my eye shadow, moisturise my skin and then start on matching my skin tone to a foundation.
An Urban Decay foundation was selected but as Elysia started to apply this to my face she pointed out that it wasn’t sitting well on my skin, following a glance in the mirror I was in total agreement and it was decided that a new foundation would be selected and applied.
It was at this time that I knew I would definitely visit Blow LTD again. The fact that Elysia had pointed out that it wasn’t working for me and had then taken time to find a different brand and colour match showed that they aren’t there to just make money, they are there to make their customers look and feel the best they can.
After the foundation, came the bit I had most been waiting for the contouring and WOW… I have never looked in the mirror before and thought that I looked pretty and suddenly there I was smiling at myself in the mirror and feeling like I could take on the world.
Products that were used:
The majority of the products used were Urban Decay, with Laura Mercer: Silk cream moisturising photo edition foundation.
A big thank you to the team at Blow LTD especially Elysia, I had a great afternoon and my make up lasted until I took it off at the end of the night.
- On the day that I had my make up done, My mum was able to book herself in for a last minute blow dry and was extremely happy with her hair.
- Blow LTD have a mobile phone app that helps you check availability and book an appointment.
