What is your definition of beauty?

Yesterday I was invited to the launch of Selfridges #beautyproject in Exchange Square. This was the beginning of a 6 week long project of talks, debates and beauty related events.

I arrived on time and was given the most adorable limited edition Tatty Devine wristband to wear and keep.

susan-styles-you-tatty-devineThe place was fairly quiet at this time, so armed with a cute cocktail, I had a quick wander around and decided on a makeover at the Nars counter.

As I was being made up it started to get a lot busier with the most amazing hoola hoopers and a fab DJ set from Broken Hearts who looked awesome!

I absolutely loved my make-up, especially my eyes, using soft touch shadow pencil in Hollywood Land and eyeliner pencil in Kaliste. I loved the products so much I bought them! It was a great event and I loved my make-up so much I didn’t want to wash it off 🙂

Over the next few weeks you can have a private consultation with Armand Beasley for £75 (redeemable against any purchase) you can have a one to one with him over a glass of bubbly – how cool is that!

Plus over the next few weeks you can book onto a number of exclusive, inspiring and challenging talks looking at different aspects of what it means to be beautiful and the beauty industry. The talks take place at Selfridges Exchange Square and will include:

Thursday 8 May: Journalist Bim Adewunmi talks to actress Zawe Ashton (best know from Channel 4’s Fresh Meat) in ‘Carefree Black Girls’: Beauty Ideals, Cultural Aesthetics and Creativity – discussing the narrow standards of what constitutes ‘black (and mixed race) beauty’ in the media, the tentative return of TV’s ‘Carefree Black Girl’ and how beauty translates across different audiences.

Thursday 15 May: With 64-year-old Jessica Lange starring in the new Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign and 68-year-old Charlotte Rampling set to be the new face of Nars, is the time of women over 50 feeling ‘invisible’ to the beauty industry over? Fashion industry expert and diversity campaigner Caryn Franklin hosts a conversation with Helen Walmsey-Johnson (The Guardian’s Invisible Woman) and Jody Furlong (one of London’s top casting directors) about the relationship between beauty, brands and the older woman in Who are You Calling Invisible? Beauty and the Older Woman.

Wednesday 21 May: An exploration of the transformative powers of make-up and the role of beauty work in the creation and expression of gender and identity – with Dr Sally Hines (Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at Leeds), Grace Oni Smith (make-up and drag artist) and Cheddar Gorgeous (drag performer, visual artist and Manchester academic) in We’re Born Naked, The Rest is Drag; Identity, Fantasy and Beauty Beyond Gender.

Wednesday 4 June: In The Good, The Bad and the Beautiful, journalist, broadcaster, Guardian columnist and founder of the award-winning salihughesbeauty.com, Sali Hughes will be in conversation with writer Emma Jane Unsworth and fashion historian Amber Butchart, discussing the rituals, history and effects of beauty work and examining its place in modern feminism.

All talks will take place in San Carlo’s Farmacia del Dolce (LG) and tickets are priced at £15 – which includes a glass of wine and tasting plate of San Carlo’s signature dishes. Tickets will be available from w/c 21 April and can be purchased online (www.selfridges.com) or in store
