Last Saturday 200 lucky IMAGE magazine readers were lucky enough to nab invites to a very special edition of Pippa’s Fashion Factory in collaboration with SAMSUNG.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with juices while make-up artists Judy Wong, Tara Anderson, Lyndsey Cavanagh and Eilis Downey offered make-up top-ups at their pop-up stations. Contributing Editor Melanie Morris introduced the afternoon, which included a fashion show (with looks from H & M and Coast), a make-up masterclass with Tara Anderson and Pippa, and top fitness tricks for eating and exercising with Siobhan Byrne (of BodyByrne).
Executive Chef at The Marker Hotel, Garreth Mullins came out to introduce the afternoon tea - a mix of exquisite sandwiches followed by scones, lemon drizzle cake, and macaroons that resembled make-up compacts. Alongside this gorgeous spread, our guests enjoyed glasses of Veuve Clicquot Rosé and toasted to the motto of the afternoon, #letlifesurpriseyou
Everyone left with gift bags full of treats from Betty & Biddy, Nic & Ali, My Shining Armour Notebook, Sally Hansen Nail Care, and Elf Cosmetics. Just before the event wrapped up, one lucky lady won the grand prize of the latest Samsung mobile (which is due to be released in Ireland on February 25th), much to everyone's jealousy!
