I absolutely love going to Debenhams to find Christmas presents for my family. They always have an amazing range on offer for everyone! When I went into my local Debenhams in Cardiff a few weeks back, I saw loads of posters and notices advertising their Look Good Feel Better Gala coming up the next week all over the store. I reached out to the lovely Anthony from TooFaced at Cardiff Debenhams who told me all about the Gala. He invited me down to explore the makeup counters and see the offers they were all having! The Look Good Feel Better Gala raises money to support women with cancer and marks the relaunch of the Debenhams Beauty Club.
I was greeted with a cute drink and met Anthony who explained a little more about the Gala. I was then sat down for a complimentary makeover, done by Holly who was wonderful. She talked me through all the products she used – some of them are definitely on my Christmas List now! My favourite was the Born This Way foundation. I also loved the eyeshadows she used (a mix of all the Chocolate Bar palettes).
While I was there, I got to meet Sam who was absolutely lovely and told me all about the Gala. I also met Pam, who organises makeovers and beauty lessons for cancer patients in local hospitals. Makeup artists donate their own time, the brands donate makeup and the cancer patients are pampered all day and shown loads of new techniques! I was hoping to attend a makeover day in Cardiff to meet some of the patients and hear what they think but unfortunately I couldn’t make it. This is a cause close to my heart as I routinely help during examinations for cancer patients while on clinical placement as a Radiography student.
I was so impressed by how the whole store came together to raise money for charity. After talking to two of the beauty counters, I found that they’d raised over £3000 for Look Good Feel Better! I’m so happy to be able to support this cause and share the amazing work the teams at Debenhams are doing!
