Bumble and bumble x Polished Perfect x Sephora Event

This past Saturday I was given the opportunity to work as an editorial model for Bumble and bumble at a Sephora VIP event held at the Polished Perfect flagship store.

To be honest I was so surprised that I was contacted for this event. I recently set up my Backstage profile and found that one of their corporate employees reached out to me to inquire about my availability for the gig. I immediately replied and received the confirmation details the next day.

The event itself wasn’t what I was expecting, but I didn’t know what to expect in the first place. Everything was well thought out for the Sephora VIP guests with stations offering services including hair styling for the stylists at Polished Perfect using Bumble products, nail care touch ups from Polished, Givenchy Beauty makeup tutorials from their makeup reps, and a little dessert station for the guests to indulge in some sweets. Champagne was overflowing and the event flowed really smoothly.

Another model and I were apart of the hair demos led by celebrity stylist Buddy Porter and would be front and center throughout the event for the guests to learn more about how to use Bumble and bumble products. To my surprise, I even received a very trendy haircut in addition to a Bumble and bumble product haul to care for my new hair.
