Harvey Nichols Edinburgh – An Evening of Beauty*

Last week I was very kindly invited to attend Harvey Nichols Edinburgh’s Evening of Beauty, a semi-annual event which celebrates the best in new season beauty, and gets you completely ready for the new season.

Greeted with rows and rows of Harvey Nichols’ own prosecco (seriously, it’s delicious and I currently have three bottles of the stuff in my fridge) the Evening of Beauty is simply the most glamorous way to treat yourself to what’s brand new in beauty as well as really treat yourself!

The Harvey Nichols’ beauty department is something of a makeup lover’s dream at the best of times, but for the Evening of Beauty, they really went all out! Experts were posted at every beauty counter, to best advise on which products to go for, as well as offer wonderfully luxurious little treats.

Getting to wander around, prosecco in hand really made for a wonderful atmosphere, as everyone gathered round to see the best ways to fill in brows, get hand massages and sample the newest products.

There was also a serious incentive for treating yourself – at the moment, if you spend over £200 on two or more products in a single purchase, you get the most glorious of gifts. A gorgeous little makeup bag, curated by Violet Grey which contains some real must-haves! Even better? If you spend over £200 at Sisley you get an additional makeup bag absolutely packed with Sisley favourites. I’m still trying to decide what to go for – I’m thinking a pot of my Shea day cream, their lip balm and a new Phyto Twist?!

Another counter I’m thinking of treating myself at is, of course, Creme de la Mer. I’m a big fan of the brand, and I’ve kept a pot of their original cream in my stash since I was about 16. It’s a serious investment, but nothing calms and evens out my skin like it, and I’ve been dying to try out their makeup line!

The new perfume niche was also a rather wonderful place to spend a little time. Not only was the Creed display absolutely beautiful, but the selection of perfumes to choose from is incredible. They have such a well-curated department that holds brands like my favourite Atelier Cologne, they also have Killian fragrances, as well as of course, Creed.

As if all the beauty treats weren’t enough, a seriously impressive fashion illustrator was on hand for the prettiest portraits you can imagine! Unfortunately, I had to dash off for my lift before I could secure a spot, but I so wish I had gotten one – can you imagine how good these would look framed!?

Thank you so much to Harvey Nichols Edinburgh for having me!
