Fenwick Beauty Week (28th September – 5th October)

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 19 - 2013

As a terminally unfashionable sort of person, you know what you can do with your fashion weeks don’t you?  Which is why you didn’t read a single LFW-related post on this here blog this year.  Beauty weeks however… well, that’s a whole different ball game!

Fenwick (of Bond Street) have long been my favourite beauty destination whilst in London.  The venue is less frenetic than that of Selfridges, the atmosphere calmer.  The brands feel more “at home” and hand-picked, in a similar way to those at Liberty and they’re not afraid to clear their end of season beauty products at great prices.  From cosmetics to fragrances, I’ve picked up some wonderful high-end bargains over the years.

So what’s this Beauty Week about then?

In celebration of the launch of the store’s online beauty department, Fenwick will be hosting a week-long event devoted to demonstrating the latest beauty looks, skin-care, and makeup.  There will be a range of complimentary treatments available as well as demonstrations and surprise treats.  I’ve outlined the happenings below:
