Head down to Harvey Nichols and you’ll find the Knightsbridge store transformed into a beauty mecca of extraordinary dimensions. Entitled ‘A Beautiful Mind,’ this isn’t just your usual plodding ‘gift with purchase’ event. Instead, Harvey Nichols celebrates ‘intelligent beauty’ by championing pioneering brands that are taking the industry by storm.
What will you find? Start at the new Beauty Concierge where beauty experts will offer you an unbiased service for every beauty want you could think of – from a perfect shade of lipstick to a fully prescriptive skincare regime and the latest body treatment.
From there, the floors are yours. Visit personalised makeup stations and innovative in-store theatre and exclusive launches from the likes of key brands Chanel, Eyeko, Daniel Hersheson, Cover FX and more. All the tools, tutorials and techniques to make the absolute most of yourself – and specialists to show you how – will be there to play with.
Then, one for your diaries: Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends, Anna Gardner of Vivianna Does Make Up, Nails Inc founder Thea Green, skincare specialist Caroline Hirons and Sunday Times Beauty Director Edwina Ings-Chamber form an illustrious beauty panel, hosted by BeautyMART founder Anna-Marie Solowij to discuss innovation in beauty today, the trend for bespoke and personalisation and the future of beauty. I’ll be there. Will you? For info on tickets, see below.
