This week I went to a special little event over in West London with Jemma Kidd – a masterclass and general intro to the JK Jemma Kidd range. To be totally honest, whilst I was aware of the Jemma Kidd make-up range, I hadn’t realised there were actually two ranges. One – Jemma Kidd Make Up School is the slightly more ‘grown-up’ or professional and the JK range is younger, brighter and a bit more ‘fashiony’ colours.
Introduced to the range by Jemma Kidd herself, who talked us through her history in the beauty industry and then her head make-up artist (who is involved in the product creation for both Jemma Kidd ranges) started our masterclass. Starting with my favourite product I was shown on the evening – JK Jemma Kidd Mannequin Skin Complexion Enhancer – a gorgeous, glowing complexion primer. A very light primer, with a pearly shimmer running through it.
We also went through applying the JK Pro Finish Moisture Tint as a base, to be honest – I didn’t love this, it felt too light for me. I generally like lighter finish bases, but for some reason I didn’t love how this one sat on my skin.
We also had a little look at some of the colour range – I love the peachy pink lipgloss, brighter on the skin that it looks in the tube. And then the new On Location palettes.
The swatches are from the neural palette (there’s a neutral and a bold palette). I loved the range of shades and mixture of cream and powder textures. I especially love the creamy pink shade of the blusher and the peachy pink shimmer eyeshadow.
Just for fun, here’s a few more shots of the JK collection (I love the look of the mosaic blusher below the lip glosses in the top picture).
I really enjoyed the masterclass and it was great to discover the two ranges that come under the Jemma Kidd umbrella! In other news, I’m currently trying out the much-raved about Light As Air foundation… will report back soon!
The JK Jemma Kidd range is available from ASOS.
