If you’ve ever been to the ground floor of Selfridges at Intu Trafford I’m sure you’ll agree with me that it is a place of dreams; from the designer bags and accessories to the makeup and skincare counters, I often have to tear myself away whenever I head in.
Last week me and my mum headed to the Clinique counter for a consultation as part of Selfridges My Mum Is… Mother’s Day campaign. Besides mascara my mum isn’t a makeup wearer and she isn’t big on skincare either, but really who doesn’t like a bit of a mini pamper?
Our consultant at Clinique was incredibly engaging and knowledgeable. She began by asking my mum questions about her skin concerns, before advising what products she could use to combat this. After that my mum had her skin cleansed and treated with these products before having her makeup done.
As my mum isn’t a big makeup wearer, she wore Cliniques new BIY makeup as a base; an amazing new formulation that can be mixed with moisturiser and built up for higher coverage. It looked so natural, like she wasn’t even wearing anything. After blusher, lipstick, eyebrows and mascara we were set to go for an early Mother’s Day tea and my mum looked fab with a full face of makeup.
