  • Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes

    Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes

    There is one woman out there whose opinion on beauty is worth listening to and she's just published a book on the subject. Pretty Honest by Sali Hughes is refreshingly un-coffee table like, in fact it's unlike most other beauty books that seem to still feel the need to tell us how to apply blusher and show us wonderful images of women whose standard of beauty we'll never achieve and don't particularly want to either.

    And yet it's not negative, or beauty bashing. Instead it's entertaining, witty, supportive when it needs to be and overwhelmingly kind of uplifting in the same way that when a friend's honesty stings a little you realise that ultimately it's in your best interests.


  • Make-up That's Worth Kicking Off About

    Make-up That's Worth Kicking Off About

    Some beauty commercials really strike a chord and this one, for the US colour brand Wet n' Wild, directed by David Lachapelle, addresses make-up's outrageous side. Talk about lipstick wars!
  • BeautyMART & #VFNO

    BeautyMART & #VFNO

    Did you see us at Vogue's Fashion Night Out? The team rocked it at BeautyMART, Topshop applying Glitter Lips all night long (apologies to those of you in the queue that never made it to the front) alongside Sophy Robson who got creative with her Nail-Its press-ons, customising nails for lucky customers. Here are some pictures from the night with me, Millie and the rest of team hard at work giving it some glitter. BTW, who was the purple furry chick? Love those lips!

    Vogue's #FNO

    If you're in the west end of London tomorrow evening (and, let's face it, every stylish female in London will be) then come and visit Millie, me and the rest of the BeautyMART team in Topshop, Oxford Circus. As part of Vogue Fashion's Night Out celebrations we're hosting an evening of 'fast fashion for your lips and tips' with Sophy Robson Nail-Its and Glitter Lips.


  • The Art of Body Painting

    The Art of Body Painting

    I was invited this weekend to judge The Art of Body Painting competition at Olympia Beauty. Body painting is the use of one or a combination of three techniques: sponging, painting, airbrushing. I usually avoid beauty exhibitions - they're certainly not enough of a draw for me to give up my weekend, but I've always been fascinated by special effects (FX as it's known in the industry) and prosthetics with the enormous amount of work that goes into creating a work of art using the human body as a canvas.



  • Happy Birthday ThandieKay

    Happy Birthday ThandieKay

    Is it really a year since make-up artist Kay Montano and actress Thandie Newton launched For the past 12 months we've followed their make-up tips and tricks, drooled over the most amazing beauty images and - basically - wanted to live their lives. Our latest lust can be seen below, where Kay has used Daniel Sandler's Watercolour Blush in Trip to achieve a beautiful tawny glow on the cheeks. It's so this season, it's so next season - we're wearing it now! We asked Kay to tell us
  • It's Cool to be HOT

    It's Cool to be HOT

    Sweaty-looking skin is the top trend for S/S '15, so it's officially fashionably cool to sweat. But you don't have to wait until next season to get the look.

  • LFW SS15 Diary Day Five: Fashion Week Feet Up

    LFW SS15 Diary Day Five: Fashion Week Feet Up

    I'm back in the office after a gruelling but exciting fashion week and I just wanted to share the day's shows, from the comfort of my sofa (ok, desk, but at least I'm sitting down).

    To celebrate the last day of the shows the brilliant beauty brand Weleda, who sponsor the Model Zone, a secret location where all the girls get to hang out between shows and enjoy massages, mini facials and a rest away from the lights, cameras and action, are offering one lucky BeautyMART fan the chance to win the same bag of goodies given to models. {...}

    It's my last day of London Fashion Week as I have to return to my day job at BeautyMART tomorrow. I'm looking forward to some exciting shows and getting the inside line on next season's beauty looks. {...}

    LFW SS15 Backstage Diary: Day Three

    7am Hooray, I get a lie in today as my partner in crime, Vogue’s Jess Diner is covering the first show of the day. She texts me excitedly to say that the beauty look at Preen is freckled faces – we love freckles! {...}

  • LFW SS15 Backstage Diary: Day Two

    LFW SS15 Backstage Diary: Day Two

    6.30am. Day two of London Fashion Week and it's a horribly early start as the backstage call time is 2 hours before show time. Is it even light yet? It’s foggy so I can't tell how the day will be. With the Northern Line out of action waiting for the bus to get to a working tube line to Somerset House will take forever. Never mind, onward! {...}

  • Next Season, Now

    Next Season, Now

    Though it still feels like summer 2014, in fashion land, spring 2015 is in the air and with it a new roster of hair and make-up looks.

    Here are BeautyMART's high five trends from New York that are likely to roll out via the other fashion capitals (plus a few standout one-off looks that we love). {...}

  • Endless Summer

    Endless Summer

    With the SS15 shows firmly on the radar and this unseasonably hot weather, it seems like summer's never going to end - not that we're complaining. I'm still using De Mamiel Summer Facial Oil - it just feels wrong to be moving on to the Autumn Oil while the sun's still shining. I don't intend to stop wearing my summer nail crush, Models Own Polish for Tans, a range of bronze-boosting chalky neons in coral, orange, lime, lemon and pink which, coincidentally, look amazing with autumnal black jeans and MA1 jacket.

  • Trolley Dash

    Trolley Dash

    -When we launched BeautyMART nearly two years ago (it's our birthday on 7th September) some people asked why we chose the name BeautyMART. 'It's about a high/low mix', we explained.

    'Beauty is the elegant, sophisticated part of what we do, featuring premium brands and a slick shopping environment and service, while Mart - American for market, or shop - you know, like Wal-Mart - acknowledges the mass brands that we sell and the fast and exciting pace of our stores'.


  • Happy 2nd Birthday BeautyMART!

    Happy 2nd Birthday BeautyMART!

    BeautyMART is two years old! Yes, we can't believe it either but it's definitely two years since we first launched in Harvey Nichols with our concept of an editor's pick of iconic products from over 100 brands.

    Since then a whole lot's happened - we opened BeautyMART boutiques in Boxpark, Shoreditch and Topshop Oxford Circus and most recently - just this week - Topshop Westfield White City. We also have a pop-up in Josh Wood's Atelier and are hosting an event there on 11th September to which you're all invited.

    To celebrate this birthday, we're having an iconic and edited FLASH SALE with a 20% discount across all online products this weekend from 9am Sunday 7th to 9am Monday 8th. {...}
