Get the insider news from our Meet the Expert: 12 days of beauty event so far, with top tips from some of our experts.
Autumn’s Meet the Expert: 12 Days of Beauty event kicked off in spectacular style with a live window display in our London Street windows. Featuring three makeup artists – Jarrold Personal Beauty Consultant Paris, MAC makeup artist Josh and Charlotte Tilbury makeup artist Lauren, the live window showcased makeup demos to passing shoppers.
The exhibition was all part of the launch of Meet The Experts: 12 Days of Beauty, a twice yearly event that celebrates beauty with makeup masterclasses, demos and more with global and pro makeup artists. The autumn run takes place from 3-14 October with a full programme of makeup, skincare and fragrance events.
Highlights from the 12 day beauty extravaganza include events such as The Tom Ford Afternoon tea (Thursday 11 October) where you can discover the latest trends, sample luxury products and enjoy a scrumptious afternoon tea; one-to-one makeup appointments with Chanel’s regional makeup artist Sophie (Saturday 13 October) and the Clarins beauty workshop (Wednesday 10 October).
The 12 Days of Beauty event is your chance to come and discover the new autumn launches, try new products and discover your own individual skincare, makeup and beauty routine ready for the new season ahead. Booking details are below, but in the meantime here are Jarrold Personal Beauty Consultants Paris and Yvonne's favourite products for autumn:
Paris’ favourite makeup product:
Estée Lauder Pure Colour Love Liquid Shine lipstick
Paris says: "Out with the matte and in with the gloss! For AW18 I love a gloss to give my lips more volume and add a pouty look. I know a lot of glosses feel sticky and don’t last, but one really doesn’t. It’s a mix of a lipstick & gloss together and gives a super lacquer shine. I also love the wand as it’s curved to glide over the lips evenly in just one stroke. Be daring and go for a red - it’s the colour of the season."
Paris’ favourite skincare product:
Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly
Paris says: "With the colder weather on its way, I love to fully moisturise my skin. This moisturiser provides 24 hour hydration and as I have oily skin this product is perfect for me as it's oil free and doesn't feel sticky and heavy. My skin always feels smooth, strong and healthy, and looks clean and glowy."
Paris' favourite fragrance product:
Maison Micallef Secret Of Love - Spiritual
Brand new, exclusive and spiritual, I just adore this innovative fragrance. It's beautiful, bright and airy with a floral twist and a hint of vanilla that adds a softness for autumn. The bottle is exquisite and a real show stopper with a stunning silver pearly white exterior. Definitely one to experience for yourself this autumn and it's exclusive to Jarrold in the UK*
Yvonne's favourite makeup product:
YSL Couture Blush in Rose
Yvonne says: "This blush has a beautiful soft shade, subtle with a slight sheen, which is perfect if you want a flush of colour to your cheeks. Suitable for all skin tones, this blush can be used dry and applied with a brush, or dampen the brush to achieve more of a glow."
Instore, available from the Beauty Hall, ground floor
Yvonne's favourite skincare product:
Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil
If you like multi-tasking beauty products this could be for you. Perfect for all skin types, especially if you need extra hydration or have sensitive skin, the oil can also be used on dry ends on hair and nails to soften cuticles . This product is always in my beauty bag in winter.
Yvonne's favourite fragrance:
Floris A Rose For EDP, 100ml
I love oriental fragrances, especially for autumn and winter and this one with its rose scent is one of the best. Contemporary and dark with warm notes of spices and wood, the fragrance comes with a gold pen in a box so makes an ideal gift.
