Can you imagine being a woman of colour and never having a dedicated beauty event that you could attend...tumbleweed. That's exactly how it has been since FOREVER but, thanks to The Beauty Beat, all that is about to change.
The Beauty Beat is debuting in the UK this winter. It's a cool, chic and cleverly curated beauty festival dedicated to meeting the beauty needs of Women of Colour. Powered by Instagram and supported by The British Beauty Council, this groundbreaking, unmissable festival will be the first of its kind in the UK.
Set across the first weekend of December at a Central London space, The Beauty Beat will see some of the world’s biggest and best loved beauty brands – including NARS, Laura Mercier, bareMinerals and retail giant Boots – come together under one roof to celebrate Women of Colour.
The two-day event will include panel discussions on hot topics across hair, make-up, skincare and tweakments, feature some of the beauty industry’s most influential voices and experts, host a wealth of premium live and digital experiences including opportunities to engage with brilliant creators of colour, and offer exclusive brand discounts and an impressive goodie bag packed with full-sized products for each guest as a thank you.
