There was an article in the paper back in March announcing how Spectrum Collections was owned by 2 Welsh sisters. Not only is the brand welsh owned but the siblings started the brand from their garage in Barry! I was so excited when I read about this and was straight on Twitter asking if they had ever considered holding an event for Welsh bloggers… and here we are. On Wednesday evening I was invited to the Tramshed, Cardiff where Spectrum Collections were holding their first welsh blogging event!
Spectrum Collections Blogging Event
Upon arrival we were greeted by Lowri and handed a glass of glittering Prosecco. The decor was fabulous. There were flowers everywhere and all the Spectrum Collection brushes were out on display. They were looking ever so Instagrammable might I add. Everyone was taking the opportunity to get lots of photos in before the main part of the event began. Spectrum Collections were putting on a live Instagram and Facebook makeup tutorial showcasing their new Holy Grail 35 piece marble brush set. The makeup artist Sophie created a bold pink/maroon eye look with glowing complexion and neutral lip. I really loved the look she created and she gave me ideas of loads of products to try. Spectrum Collections pride themselves on being Cruelty Free and Vegan Friendly and only included makeup products in the look that also had these ethics which I thought was awesome!
About Sophie and Hannah
Before the event started I managed to grab a quick chat with Sophie and Hannah the sisters who founded Spectrum Collections. The girls started Spectrum from their garage in Barry! Daily they would pick and pack orders themselves as well as doing the overall running of the business. They recently moved to an office but have already outgrown that and are moving offices again this year. I loved how keen the girls were to keep the brand in Wales. Even though Spectrum is now a huge brand it is still very small in terms of employees. I can’t wait to see Spectrum Collections continue to grow. They even let us in on a secret about a new launch coming in July, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
A big thank you to Sophie, Hannah, Lowri and the rest of the Spectrum team for putting on such a fabulous event!
