Christmas has come early at Selfridges, for beauty addicts at least, as the beauty hall is transformed into a mecca of masterclasses, exclusive launches, bespoke services and demonstrations from world-class experts
For 10 days, from Thursday 25th November to Sunday 3rd December, Selfridges nationwide invites you to Come and Play, with beauty brands offering up a whole host of brilliant and beautifying festive treats.
If previous seasons are anything to go by, the counter queues expected at the launch of Chanel’s hotly anticipated new nail shade, Riva, will mark the event perfectly. Also, nailing the trend with the exclusive launch of it’s Grey City Nail Collection, inspired by fashion capitals; New York, London and Paris, is Dior.
Over on the Illamasqua counter, marvel (and take note) as Alex Box explores the fine art of make up in a masterclass and, if you’re itching for an insight into next season’s trends, the Nars Pro Team will be in store sharing the looks for Spring/ Summer 2011.
Struggling for a gift with the personal touch? Head to the Armani counter where the current Eyes To Kill, Face Fabric, Illuminous Silk Foundation and Armani Rouge collections can be personally customised with Swarovski crystals - at no extra cost.
And for those feeling particularly playful, pose for photographers in Bobbi Brown-created Vintage, Vixen or Hollywood looks, taking the pictures home as inspiration for the party season.
