Restock your beauty bag or bag a beautiful gift for a friend at one of London‘s best makeup stores. Here are our favorites:
The Beauty Workshop, Selfridges. For a one-stop, top selection of beauty brands, head to The Beauty Workshop at Selfridges. It’s 5,000 square feet of treats for the face, body and hair. Among the more than 50 brands lining the shelves are La Mer, Dior, Laura Mercier, Paul & Joe and Tom Ford.
Plus, get grooming services from the Blink Brow Bar, Hershesons Blow Dry Bar, The Paint Shop by Nails Inc. and St Tropez Skin Finishing Studio.
Space.NK.apothecary. Twenty years after the first outpost from this store opened in a former banana warehouse in Covent Garden, Space NK now boasts more than 60 outlets spread across the U.K. Each one follows the same, aesthetic-pleasing formula: a cleanly laid-out collection of fragrances, makeup, hair and body care and accessories, with customer advisers on hand to prescribe products and deliver mini makeovers.
Expect a relatively small, but excellent selection of some of the best beauty brands out there, including Aromatherapy Associates, Eve Lom, Clarisonic, Chantecaille, By Terry, Bumble and Bumble and Stila.
Liberty. An emporium of beauty in exquisite surroundings, Liberty’s Beauty & Fragrance Hall is a pleasure to peruse, pick up gifts, sample something new or head to before a night out to get some false eyelashes fixed. Aesop, Ren, Miller Harris, Cowshed, OPI and Nars are among the brands on offer.
