John Lewis, Newcastle - The Beauty Retreat and Beauty Hall

When it comes to all things beauty, I'm a bit of a late bloomer. Up until a year or so ago I applied my makeup with clumsy fingers and took it off in the evening with face wipes (shock horror)! I have my addiction to beauty blogs to thank for teaching me the basics and now I have a full skincare routine, a ridiculous collection of eye palettes and love a trip to the John Lewis Beauty Retreat!

You'll find the John Lewis Newcastle Beauty Retreat on the ground floor of the store in Eldon Square and it's heaven for the beauty lover. Despite being only a few steps away from the bustle of the high street it's a great way to escape and the perfect place to pop to after a busy day shopping (anyone else get shopping rage or is that just me?)

The John Lewis Beauty Retreat in Newcastle boasts a spa for luxury treatments as well as counters for some of my favourite makeup and skin brands including Liz Earle, NARS and Dior.  They also happen to be one of the friendliest beauty halls in Newcastle, something my hubby would definitely agree with as whenever he's shopping for my Christmas stocking, John Lewis is the only place he'd ever consider heading to (it takes a brave man to ask for an Orgasm blush at the NARS counter!)!

Clarins are one of my favourite skincare brands and I use a huge variety of their products every day but when I want that little bit of extra pampering I head to the Clarins Skin Spa at the John Lewis Beauty Retreat.  Providing amazing treatments for the face and body they offer massages, facials and even a 65 minute hot stone massage!

For the Beauty Lover

Beauty lovers step into heaven when they enter the John Lewis Beauty Hall with a huge range of beauty counters to choose from.  You'll find many of the leading brands in the Newcastle store including Benefit, Dior, Clinique and Bobbi Brown - each offering a great selection of products and services for the beauty shopper.

If you have a passion for a  particular brand, have been curious to try something new or simply want to seek advice from the professionals then it's worth taking the time to fully explore the Beauty Hall at John Lewis Newcastle.  Many people don't realise what services they provide and you can enjoy everything from full makeup overs to complimentary demonstrations and tutorials.

I could sit here all day telling you about my favourites but here's just a little teaser of what you can find in the John Lewis Beauty Hall.

John Lewis Newcastle boasts a large NARS counter stacked full of the most beautiful products. I'm a huge lover of their blushes but have never really tried anything else so it's great to be able to go to the counter and explore their full range of lip products and eye palettes.

NARS offer several flash makeovers including creating the most gorgeous smoky eye using only two eyeshadow sticks. The Soft Touch Shadow Pencils blend so well together that creating the perfect eye look using just the pencils and your fingers is super simple. I can't wait to give this a go myself!

I've owned GHDs for years but have never really given much thought to how I use my product and if I'm using it to its full potential. On the GHD counter at John Lewis you can try before you buy and learn how to get the most out of your styling tools.

I've always struggled to create curls using my GHDs so it's great to be able to enjoy a full demonstration at John Lewis. The Platinum Styler is perfect for curling as they have an easy to grip handle and are set to the perfect temperature for heat styling. Curling hair away from the face creates the most beautiful natural curls that take minutes to create.

John Lewis, Eldon Square Newcastle - GHD Contour

It's always worth asking if GHD have any new products and they currently have a limited edition GHD Contour that, I have to admit, immediately gave me flashbacks of my childhood crimping days.  The new GHDs are however a very clever way of contouring your hair, adding depth and texture and  enhancing the shape of your face.  Sounds crazy but it's a genius idea and definitely worth swinging by the counter at John Lewis to ask for a demonstration.

Liz Earle

One of my very favourite skincare brands, Liz Earle have a counter at John Lewis Newcastle and I love popping into store to restock on my favourite Cleanse and Polish. The lovely ladies will offer you great skincare advice and recommend what products you should be using on your skin. Having only ever used the cleanser I'm looking forward to heading back for a consultation soon to hopefully add some more products to my bathroom cabinet.  I also have the new Sweet Orange and Mint Cleanse and Polish on my Christmas wish list.

Chanel are one of the most luxurious makeup brands in John Lewis Newcastle and I love popping  by the counter for a flash lip makeover. As I'm not very bold in my lipstick colour choices it's really fun to try some colours that I'd probably not usually think about wearing. Experimenting on the Chanel counter is a great way of updating your look especially if you're after something new and different for the changing season or, of course, the upcoming Christmas celebrations.

Chanel offer full makeup experiences and lessons from £25.00 with the booking fee redeemable against purchase made on the day of your appointment.  They also offer complimentary walk in flash services including Flawless Face, Expressive Eyes, Defining Brows or, my favourite, the Signature Lips.

With Christmas fast approaching the John Lewis Beauty Retreat and Beauty Hall is going to be my safe haven away from the madness of the high street when the inevitable shopping rage hits and my bags get too heavy. I'm looking forward to completing my shopping this year without the worry of sore legs and aching shoulders!

  1. What a fabulous event! I always head to John Lewis for my beauty buys. The staff are always so friendly x

  2. I didn't get a chance to see the GHDs, I'm really intrigued by the contour tool!! I always crimp my roots for volume but the idea of using this to contour your face is interesting! xx
