NVS Visit Miners HQ! 

The Miners team have been mega excited all week as we had a visit from our lovely partner band, NVS!

We’ve met Declan, Harri and Tess before, and it was so nice to catch up and finally meet the very talented new members Axel and Danny. We were treated to a mini performance, followed by some karaoke and VERY impressive dance moves. And we have to be honest; they are definitely the best karaoke singers we have ever heard. Our dodgy rendition of Robbie’s ‘Angels’ wouldn’t come close!

NVS at Miners HQ!

Obviously, most of the day was spent playing about with make-up. Our amazing make-up artist Kelly-Ann created some gorgeous looks for Harri and Tess, using all our fave Miners cosmetics. We especially loved the stunning, natural look she created on the girls using our brand new Fresh Faced Foundation.

Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about the boys throughout all of this, they also got involved with the make-up fun applying make-up to the girls (who weren’t too happy about this!), taking part in our very own beauty quiz, and picking out a range of make-up for their ideal woman.

We all had an amazing day, and we can’t wait to see the gorgeous Harri, Tess, Declan, Axel and Danny again soon. You are always welcome here at Miners HQ!

 

Head over to our Twitter to see all the photos from the day and keep checking back here as we will shortly upload video interviews with the band…
