So we’re half way through January, and it’s all rather depressing really. I’m bored of the diet already, the weather sucks, it’s still two weeks till payday and that half a stone I put on over Christmas is refusing to budge. But wait! It’s not all bad news! Max Factor wants us put all thoughts of Blue Monday aside (26th January in case you’re wondering – apparently the glummest day of the year so far) and get our glam on.
Marilyn Monroe, arguably one of the most glamorous Hollywood stars of all time, is the inspiration for Max Factor’s #GlamJan in celebration of Max Factor’s 80th anniversary. I’m over the moon; Marilyn has long been a personal icon. My teenage bedroom walls were literally plastered with posters of her, along with James Dean and Elvis, and my wardrobe was literally based on Marilyn’s look – yes, I know what you’re thinking – she was blonde and blue-eyed, and I am anything but, but what can I say, I was going through a phase.
Fancy a January makeup overhaul and getting your glam on? To celebrate, I’ve teamed up with Max Factor to give three lucky winners the chances to win all you need to glam up. There’s a Facefinity All Day Primer (essential to prepare the skin, allowing foundation to sit beautifully on the skin and giving you that Marilyn-esque dewy glow), the Skin Luminizer Foundation, Excess Shimmer Cream Eyeshadows, the lash building Masterpiece Transform Mascara (my current obsession – review coming soon) to build up those fluttery long lashes and of course, an iconic lipstick – it just has to be Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Red for traffic-stopping red lips that stay soft and supple, thanks to the inbuilt moisturiser.
What do you need to do to win? It’s simple! I want to see your glamorous side! Get your makeup on, and show me your glammest glam! Post a picture on your Instagram or Twitter accounts or on my Facebook page (here) with the hashtags #GlamJanBeautyPassionista & #GlamJan. Extra points for posting “before and after” shots! We’ll be picking three winners at the end of January – one each from Twitter, Instagram and Facebook – so three of you will get the chance to win all these fabulous goodies from Max Factor.
So what are you waiting for? Ditch the glum and get glam!
