Event: Harvey Nichols A Beautiful Mind

Harvey Nichols recently hosted A Beautiful Mind, an Evening of Intelligent Beauty at the Birmingham store.

In the midst of a redevelopment but scheduled for completion in the next few months, the Birmingham team put together a night of beauty workshops from Cloud Nine Hair, Shavata Singh, the eyebrow maestro herself, a Dr. Hauschka expert and Space NK national makeup artists.

As well as serving up glamorous drinks, guests were treated to some thought provoking workshops, my favourite of which came from Shavata Singh.

Shavata Singh

I've been a big fan of Shavata for many years and always wanted to have my eyebrows done by her. Whilst I haven't had the guts to grow out my brows and take the plunge, I was able to hear Shavata speak and impart a few words of wisdom.

Shavata spoke on how eyebrows are affected by your age and profession, and your job has more of an influence than you realise in this area. In addition, she said that it's not about the number of hairs you take away, but where they go from. She also used my favourite adage, which is that eyebrows should be sisters not twins, and revealed that you can tell which hand you write with as the eyebrow on that side will be higher.  Who knew?!

Shavata spoke with such passion and knowledge, it was an absolute treat to be able to hear her talk.

I also had a play on the Nars counter, as my heart seems to beat faster everytime I come near to their fabulous products. I tried on the Palais Royale Lip Pencil and I am officially in love. I really need to start purchasing Nars as I don't own anything from here yet!

I only managed to take a few pictures on the night, but a big thank you to the team at Harvey Nichols for the invitation.
