Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar is my go to in Liverpool for beauty, it houses so many of my favourite brands under one room, you can really treat yourself & have a blow-dry or manicure on the 1st floor topped of with a glass of champagne from their gorgeous WOW bar.
Throughout September, they’ll be celebrating ‘The Art Of Style’, in association with Tate Liverpool and inspired by the Jackson Pollock: Blind Spots exhibition. You’ll have the chance to book in for artistic appointments with the in-house experts and artists and learn all about creating your own masterpiece on your beautiful face! It’s a great opportunity to explore a brand that you wouldn’t usually gravitate towards & I did just that with Shu Uemura. Shu is a name synonymous with its eyelash curlers – a cult classic in the beauty world – but they’re also experts in achieving beautiful skin that looks lit from within. My MUA Jackie used the Lightbulb Fluid Foundation – a buildable, high coverage foundation which gives the perfect dewy glow, especially when used with the Stage Performer Instant Glow – a multi-functional cream that creates the appearance of more luminous skin. I was so happy with the coverage & look I got from this foundation, I don’t think I have ever been so happy discovering a new foundation so this beauty was definitely coming home with me. An trust me that when I got home the next day I spent 48 crazy hours in Amsterdam & this was a god send keeping my skin looking flawless & healthy.
Artistic appointments are £40 with £30 to redeem on products. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll be using that to buy everything that’s just been put on your face! You’ll be given expert advice, as well as a face chart detailing all the products that have been used on you. Just let the artist know if there’s a colour or makeup style you’ve always wanted to try or ask for a tutorial on a particular makeup technique & they’ll do the rest, while making sure you feel totally comfortable with your new look. It’s a great way to perfect your beauty routine or experiment with a new look or brand, who knows what you may come across.
