The Beauty Column - ISSUE 2 (MK)
Hello! My name is Ashley, your resident Beauty columnist.
I started my journey in the Beauty Industry, fresh-faced, at 17 years old working for artistry brand Urban Decay. Now I am a leader and educator for Benefit Cosmetics where I have been for over 5 years. I love educating my clients and followers about all things beauty and what works for them.
As we launch into a much-awaited SS21 season, here are the “best in beauty” launches coming to Milton Keynes & beyond! Make sure to add these to your calendar - what have you got your eye on this Spring?
Spring Beauty Calendar:
Beauty is BACK! | Reopening 12 April
As I write this, the 12th of April is the preliminary date for non-essential retail and ‘close contact’ services’ resume. All I can say is 1) thank goodness! 2)
My Boots Ad-Card points are not going to spend themselves!
After the last 12 months I think we all need to invest in some extra self-care: so get your brows booked, your roots touched up & your facemasks at the ready. I’ll hopefully see you in the Beauty Hall ready to get pampered!
Huda Beauty Bomb Brows Online now
Just in case you missed the memo (... or my last Disclosure column) eyebrows are big business and this ‘bold & fluffy brow’ train is not slowing down this year! Huda Beauty is inviting us to join them on their brow journey as they launch their first-ever brow pencil, with the promise of more products to come. The pencil has a super-fine tip, allowing versatility & ease for the user: you can create hair-like strokes using the side of the pencil or use the width of the barrel to create more dimension & colour. It comes in 8 shades and is RRP £15 – it’s just launched and is set to sell out, so grab it soon!
Harrods Beauty | Opening April 2021
Exclusive products, international brands, elite services offerings all in the lap of luxury.
The H Beauty renovation is currently underway in the old House of Fraser Unit in the centre:MK. It is currently beauty's best-kept secret & is the second of 2 stores opening in the UK. Its sister store in Lakeside boasts an interactive makeup play station as well as an Instagram-friendly Champagne bar –I for one am super excited to see this new beauty destination breathe a bit more life into the shopping centre. Head to the Harrods Website & register for a Harrods Rewards Card, so you can earn points as you shop!
Benefit Magnet Mascara In Stores now.
Makeup giant Benefit is known for amazing mascaras and I do not know about you, but a quick coat of mascara takes me from ‘naked mole rat’ (Sorry Gen Z, that is a Kim Possible reference. A Disney 90s classic) to fabulous!
Benefit’s new magnetically charged mascara does not disappoint – delivering lifted & lengthened lashes without clumps. I love to use a lash curler for extra lift, or layer it up & pair with a soft winged liner for a more dramatic look.
Here's to sitting in a pub garden (roll on June!), Aperol in hand… looking & feeling beautiful. I’d love to know your thoughts on the new beauty launches this Spring,
