The New Beauty Pop-Ups in London
Legendary make-up artist Lisa Eldridge is hosting a pop-up studio from Saturday 30 October, where her full range of products will be available to try for the very first time. Held in the North Piazza of Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House Arcade, there will be plenty to excite long-time Eldridge fans, including a Lipstick Lounge stocking the full suite of her perennially popular True Velvet Lip Colours (including the sold-out shades), the return of coveted limited-edition hues across various products, and the chance to try her hotly anticipated new Seamless Skin Foundation before its official launch.

One of London’s most in-demand nail artists, Pria Bhamra (otherwise known as BhamBNails), is launching a pop-up nail bar across both Browns boutiques, where she’ll be delivering her sought-after brand of hand-painted custom nail art. Her A-list celebrity clientele ranges from Serena Williams and Lily Allen to Jorja Smith and FKA Twigs, who are all fans of her colourful designs, which range from cute hearts and smiley faces to her signature flames. There will be three tiers of nail art intricacy available for each two-hour appointment, from simple designs like a half moon mani to elaborate custom creations, and all of the Gel Bottle polishes Bhamra uses are vegan and cruelty-free.
