GLOSSYBOX Beauty Hunt 2018

Last week the GLOSSYBOX team travelled down to London from our HQ in Manchester to take part in our first ever GLOSSYBOX Beauty Hunt in Covent Garden for Beautython! Beautython is a beauty and shopping extravaganza celebrating the best makeup, fragrance and skincare retailers that Covent Garden hosts every year. We met so many of our gorgeous subscribers while were were there and it was so lovely to chat to you all and hear about how much you love GLOSSYBOX.

Glossy Beauty Hunt

We hid 65 Golden Tickets around Covent Garden on the 13th & 14th September, each one leading to a different beauty prize from some of the hottest brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, NARS Cosmetics and Diptique. Throughout the day, the GLOSSYBOX Team were hiding tickets and leaving clues for the public on our Instagram Story.

We were thrilled to see that Covent Garden was flooded with Glossies and beauty lovers hunting for Golden Tickets to receive delightful beauty treats! If you didn’t win a prize, we still had some bespoke GLOSSYBOX goodie bags for those of you taking part.

Beautython Glamour Panel 

On Thursday 13th September, Beautython kicked off with an exclusive beauty panel discussion co-hosted by GLAMOUR, asking some of beauty’s most influential voices what the future of beauty is. We saw appearances from GLAMOUR Editor-in-Chief, Deborah Joseph, GLAMOUR’s Beauty and Lifestyle Director, Camilla Kay, CEO of Beauty at The Hut Group, Rachel Horsefield, Beauty Writer and Influencer, Jane Cunningham, Global Artistry Director for NARS Cosmetics, Jane Richardson, Co-Founder of the The Beauty Conversation and Founder and Writer of the Disneyrollergirl, Navaz Batliwalla.

I am always searching for future trends - beauty, fashion, hair, you name it! I’ve tried every foundation under the sun and love trying up-and-coming makeup brands to compare them with the big names. Variety is the spice of life and my makeup bag is definitely wide-ranging.
