With our daylight lasting longer with this lovely sun, it makes perfect sense heading out to great events and functions and one of my best ones for this year so far has to be the 3rd birthday of Keziah Connections. Founder Natalie Clue, who’s also the brains behind BeautyPulselondon.com hosted the event in partnership with BlackUp Cosmetics at the Noir Lounge. This was my first time going to a Keziah Connections event even though I’d heard about it before. Hands down it has to be one of the best organisations around for women of colour who work or are interested in a career in the beauty industry. They hold regular networking and drinks events in very glam venues and locations around London. Now I wished at I’d started going earlier – but hey better late than never. I’ve been following news on BlackUp cosmetics for the past 3 years, though I’ve never used any of their products – but I’ve heard tons of good news about their products – so it was equally as great meeting the lovely and oh so delightful Elizabeth Tulloch, (UK Area Manager for BlackUp) who gave the audience a little intro about the BlackUp brand and a chance to ask questions. It was a great opportunity as I got to ask her about the founder of BlackUp cosmetics because I’m always so intrigued by founders of great businesses. I’m definitely going to be trying out one of their foundation and when I do I’ll do a little review, no doubt I’m going to love it – like I do everything else.
