Fenwick Beauty Week 2016

If you're anything like me and love spending your time mooching about Fenwick's Beauty Hall then I have an event that you'll need to get your diary out for.  Fenwick Beauty Week starts tomorrow (Saturday 7 May) and is a "must" for any beauty fan.  There'll be plenty of masterclasses and activities throughout the week as well as new product launches and some amazing offers.

Charlotte Tilbury, YSL, Laura Mercier, Lancome - I could literally sit here all day listing my favourite beauty counters in Fenwick.  We're very lucky to have such a fine selection right in the heart of Newcastle and Beauty Week is an ideal time to visit all of your favourite counters and perhaps try something new.

I popped to Fenwick earlier this week to find out a bit more about what you can expect during Beauty Week (giving you enough time to plan your week and arrange to get rid of your other half/find a babysitter!)

I'm also giving you an exclusive look at what's going to be happening on a couple of my favourite counters.

Bobbi Brown - Beach Nudes

First up, Bobbi Brown.  Bobbi Brown have launched their new Beach Nudes Collection to give you a radiant sunkissed look for Summer.  Completely flawless and suitable for any skin tone the collection is made up of three sheer lip colours, two new shades of bronzing powder and three sunkissed eye palettes (that I'm now officially obsessed with!)

The beautiful Sarah was our model for the evening and our Bobbi Brown makeup artist used the pink palette which looked absolutely stunning.  The palette features flattering neutrals that sit beautifully alongside gorgeous beachy pinks, there's a little sparkle in there too which is perfect for a more evening appropriate look.

If you're not a fan of pinks then there is also a nude palette full of champagnes and rose golds and a gold palette of coppers and golden beach shimmer.  I gave the Gold palette a try and it was stunning.  I couldn't believe how easy it was to create such a beautiful look, so much so I'm seriously thinking about heading back to Fenwick at any moment to buy myself one.

You can join Bobbi Brown for the Beach Nudes Ultimate Make-Up Lesson on Monday 9 May at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm where there'll be an on-stage group makeup lesson offering tricks of the trade and a look at the Beach Nudes Collection.  Tickets cost £10 and are redeemable against products.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Summer

The second counter I'm giving you a sneak peak of is Tom Ford where I got to have a play with their Summer launches.  The Tom Ford Soleil Collection is all about creating beautiful bronzed and glowing skin for Summer using bronzers, highlighters and bright lips.

We played around with the gorgeous Bronzing Primer (essential for some Summer glow),  the cream eye colour in Naked Bronze and, my personal favourite, the Sheer Cheek Duo in Biocoastal.

I really love the different looks you can get with Biocoastal and our makeup artist demonstrated using a subtle flush of the dark pink colour on the cheeks with the lighter peach colour as a highlighter.  It looked so good that I think I'll be saving my pennies to get myself one.

The thing that impressed me the most with the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc collection is how long lasting it is, especially when you're on holiday.  The cream shadows in particular work really well if you're going somewhere hot as they last all day without creasing.

We finished our introduction with the essential finishing touches - the Soleil Blanc Shimmering Oil and Soleil Blanc perfume (which literally smells like holiday in a bottle)

If you love the sound of my experience at Tom Ford then you can enjoy the Soleil Blanc Summer Makeup Lesson on Tuesday 10 May at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm.  Tickets are £10 which is redeemable against products.
