The shopping centre has been holding its first Beauty Week this week with a focus on makeup makeovers, competitions and the latest beauty gadgets.

The week will culminate in a number of workshops this Saturday, July 6, with free tickets for a VIP experience to those who apply in advance.

Top make-up artist Amanda Bell, who has worked at London Fashion Week and whose work has appeared in everything from Vogue to Cosmopolitan, will be opening the event at 11am, with an ageless elegance makeover masterclass.

The session will give tips on how to still look stylish but age appropriate, which will be followed by a second session by Amanda at 1.30pm where she’ll be demonstrating how to make over your make up.
