Now Online: Art of Perfumery Issue
One of the big surprises I’ve learned while chatting with beauty enthusiasts around the world on twitter is the number of women who are intimidated by beauty counters. It makes sense. The sleek design, volume of choice and perfectly attired beauty experts can be a little scary to many. So this month, U.K. celebrity makeup artist Nina Westbury shares her tips on how to shop a beauty counter. It’s practical and insider information on how to get the most from your visit and how to feel confident and welcome at these beauty shop-in-shops. She bets you’ll develop lasting friendships with some of the beauty experts once you visit.
Nina tells us that she met our feature interview model and her mother while working at Harrods in London. She says Georgia May Jagger was so sweet and polite when she served her and Jerry Hall. I’m happy to say she is still generous and kind. Read our interview with her as the face of Mugler Muse.
There is so much beauty innovation to share with you this month. Lancôme shakes up lip colour with its Juicy Shakers. Burberry Full Kisses offers an innovative flat top bullet applicator that adds fullness and defines lips like a pro artist. And Dior’s Polka Dots are spring’s perfect accessory. It’s an exciting month for beauty.
I hope you enjoy this issue. Best wishes!
