As a makeup artist Edinburgh I am constantly on the look out for great places to pick up some new makeup and beauty treats. I love Edinburgh so much. Whether its just for wandering rounds it’s beautiful streets, grabbing a hipster coffee (ok I don’t drink coffee, but I like grabbing a cuppa from the pretty coffee shops) or going shopping. Edinburgh has a lot to offer for a makeup artist, here are some of the places I like to keep my kit topped up from.
Oh, how I love Space NK. The elegance, the class, the smells and the makeup. Oh, the makeup. They have such a great mix of high end brands, makeup, beauty and gifts. Although it’s not a massive store it’s got a great selection, if you’re looking for something a little bit fancier.
There’s nothing quite like walking into Harvey Nics and seeing all the beautiful brands and makeup. This is where the only MAC is in Edinburgh along with Chanel, Tom Ford, Laura Mercier and many others. So much money can be spent in such little time, it’s normally safer for me to leave the credit card at home.
I have a love for boots, I can never leave without swatches all over my arms. However I have recently been really impressed with Superdrug with their affordable brands that give the luxury brands a run for their money. With brands such as MUA, B. Revolution and Sleek they have really affordable products that you can create beautiful looks with.
These are all big chains but what I love is independent shops which there is lots of in Edinburgh. If you know of any great places that you know this makeup artist Edinburgh would love please let me know!
