Everyone loves a beauty day out am I right? I love popping into shops and discovering new beauty brands whilst also learning something new at the same time. Maybe it was a skincare ingredient I didn’t know about or it was a new way of applying make-up.
Take last week for example. I was lucky enough to book in a session with a make-up artist who actually showed me the proper way to do a cat-eye flick with liquid eyeliner. We all know how hard it is to make the perfect, effortless flick and she gave me one simple tip that will change my eyeliner flick forever. Simply draw a dot to where you want the flick to finish and then swipe inwards from that dot. Simple as that. However, had I not had the time with her I would have been subjected to a life of poorly drawn-on feline flicks with liquid eyeliner. And who wants that?
This is exactly why I wanted to tell you about a new beauty event coming to London who I have partnered with on this post. Most people know about Stylist Live, Elle Weekender and the Glamour Beauty Festival and go crazy for them so it’s nice that there’s a new one coming to town just before Christmas which is called Beauty Vibe London. It’s popping up on the 6th and 7th of December in the heart of Soho so really accessible for anyone who is coming into London from out-of-town or who lives in London. I like that the venue is in central London so super easy to get to. The event runs over two days as mentioned so if you work during the day on Friday you can always hit the Saturday sessions.
So…what exactly is Beauty Vibe and the Beauty Vibe Experience Lounge? Well, it’s something that is actually quite useful to attend because you can book in sessions with MUAs and also with YOURS TRULY for Makeup Bag Makeover Sessions where you can BYO make-up or beauty bag and we can go through what you have, what you might need and how to use it. Think of it like a personal styling session for your beauty bag. Once you have that session with me you can then sit with a MUA who will be able to show you exactly how to use your own products and maximise what you already have. You can book in the Express Your Vibe (Sasha Ghodinstant), Colour Style (Juan Lopez) or Glamour Signature (Nelson Catarino) sessions on the Beauty Vibe website.
I also love a beauty masterclass and at Beauty Vibe London you have access to all of them. Some beauty day out experiences can be quite expensive when you add up entry fees + additional costs for booking in masterclasses but Beauty Vibe London is not only FREE to enter but also with that entry you can get access to all the masterclasses as well.
There’s loads of masterclasses such as the 3D Mind & Body Workout Masterclass where you learn more about how you can fit self-care into your busy schedule and look and feel your best – think life hacks to perform your best but also look after yourself at the same time (I definitely need this)!
I’m also keen to attend the Science & Nature Skin Workshop with Dr. Naureen Quereshi from Elequra who will talk about skincare ingredients, treatments and their benefits. It’s a great skincare masterclass to attend to learn more about what you are putting on your skin.
You can also attend the Meet the Founders & Experts Masterclass where you can understand the story of how a brand was created and hear all about the world of the beauty business. For all the girl bosses out there who might want to start their own beauty brand or wonder what it takes to do so!
Other masterclasses and workshops you can attend on your beauty day out will be:
The Special Effects Make-up Masterclass – showing tricks that truly transform with Seventa Make-up Academy.
The Ingredients Workshop – did you know that there are hormone impacting ingredients you should learn to avoid? You can find out what they are as well as many other facts at this workshop with Vianney Leigh from Status Flow Collective.
Co Create Class – be part of a focus groups with brand owners and the Beauty Vibe team to feedback what you want from beauty and understand the brand development process.
Self-Care Hair – get a pro lesson on achieving salon hair at home from cool hairdressing salon founder, Melania, founder of 6 brilliant hairdressing locations London Labs, using natural Australian haircare brand Kevin Murphy.
Along with the masterclasses there will be 10 indie beauty brands to discover at the Beauty Vibe Chat bars. At the event you can also meet founders, experts and brands including Jalue Skincare, Equi Botanics, delilah Cosmetics, Apotheka Skincare, Elequra Skincare, Nailberry and Depixym colour.
You can also have your own mini photoshoot at the Vibe Photoshoot area where you can have your portrait done in return for a donation to the Worlds Big Sleep Out to support ending global homelessness.
The Beauty Vibe Experience Lounge is on Friday 6th, 9am – 9pm and Saturday 7th December, 9am – 6pm at 48 Poland Street, Soho, W1 and tickets are FREE for your beauty day out – woohoo!
