Hidden in the basement of Selfridges Exchange Square, the beauty hall can be found. Bursting with luxurious perfumes, beautiful make-up and over 50 of the most loved brands – it really is a special place to spend a little (or albeit a lot) of time.
When an email popped into my inbox asking if I wanted to meet beauty expert, Charlotte Ingram, to find out about the recent launch of Selfridges beauty personal shopping service – I jumped at the chance. Available exclusively at Selfridges Exchange Square, it’s something to enjoy and feel proud about.
I do love my make-up and being able to spend time trying out new products is something I enjoy – but sometimes I feel quite hesitant about doing so. With hundreds of beauty products coming onto the market each month, finding the right items which suit you can seem like a daunting task.
I’ve always been a lover and user of Clinique. It’s my go-to cosmetic brand and I have trusted it for many years. Aside from Clinique, I dabble with beauty products from Chanel, YSL and Dior. Their bright and bold colours entice me to go beyond my comfort zone. However sometimes I think we may need a little help to delve into the world of beauty and that’s when beauty experts and advisors, like Charlotte, can help.
After frantically rushing through the city centre, I arrived at my appointment with Charlotte. Greeted by her warm smile we made our way to her little haven – the beauty personal shopping room.
Decorated with a simple, yet classic look, I made myself at home in the plush surroundings. I instantly felt comfortable with Charlotte as she explained her role and what the beauty personal shopping service was all about. We spoke about all things beauty; from our personal make-up styles and favourite products, to Selfridges and what the beauty service offers.
After speaking with Charlotte about my make-up dilemmas including finding the right shades for my skin, I was delighted to hear she could help with lots of tailored tips and impartial advice. She also mentioned if customers are in a rush, they could call ahead and the team would get everything ready so all you would need to do is pop in to collect and pay!
Following a launch over a month ago, it’s impressive to see how the personal beauty shopping service has been going from strength to strength. With a variety of people using the service including avid beauty-fans, mother and daughter duos and men on the hunt for that perfect gift for their love – it’s fair to say, the personal shopping service is for everyone. Oh and did I mention it was a complimentary service?
So if you feel like kicking off autumn with a bang and want to expand your beauty knowledge and collection, then why not book an appointment with Charlotte? You can book your appointment by calling the team on 0161 838 0610. Alternatively you can talk to Charlotte through the Selfridges Beauty Instagram account: @Selfridges_Beauty.
