My name is Aimee Connolly and I am delighted to be guest editing on the lovely Gordons Chemists website today :)
For those of you that don't know me, I am a makeup artist based in the South and I am also the creator of the brand Sculpted by Aimee Connolly, which has just launched into Gordons stores! To say I am ecstatic would be an understatement!!
I wanted to write a little note today just to explain where the brand was born out of and what you can expect from Sculpted. I have been doing makeup for the last 9 years and I have worked with some of the biggest brands such as Urban Decay and MAC Cosmetics. I really enjoyed my time on counter but I was only ever part time due to my studies so I decided to work for myself from the age of 19.
I cover lots of different things in the makeup world; I have a weekly column with the Sunday World, a monthly edit with The Northern Woman along with doing tv, events and teaching. I launched my own MakeUp Academy last year; Sculpted The Academy which is going great. The Academy launch welcomed the new VTCT/ITEC courses that we now offer to help those pursue a career in makeup. My experience from teaching for years along with working on many different clients has taught me so much about what I want my brand to offer.
One of the main points when it comes to Sculpted is that I wanted it to be an easy approach to makeup that would be suitable for all ages - ideally the mums would be robbing the daughter’s products and vice versa.
What you will see on Gordon’s shelves is my Rose Gold Edition gift set. This palette contains the bronzer, rose gold powder highlight and cream champagne highlighter along with the double ended brush. I will have a tutorial coming up on Gordons Insta stories soon to show you step by step on how to use it but believe me, it’s so versatile and so flattering on.
I use the bronzer, cream and rose gold highlight on my face, eyes and body – where ever possible really!! :) I also deliberately included the double ended brush to have access to the best tools to apply it. The fluffier end of this brush is designed to fit right into the cheekbone and the tapered end precisely places your highlight on top.
We have many exciting things to come in the next 6 months that we think you are all going to adore!!
Thanks for your support if you do already use the brand, if you don't - I hope you enjoy your shopping in Gordons Chemists and I’ll catch you over on their stories for a little ‘How To’!
