GABY Soutar rounds up the latest beauty news and deals across Scotland
Be aware and care
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and plenty of our favourite beauty brands are feeling charitable. Buy Aveda’s limited edition BCA Hand Relief Cream (£22) and they’ll donate £2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Or, pick up something from Crabtree & Evelyn’s Evelyn Rose & Pear Collection (from £15 for Body Lotion) and they’ll give £1.
Consider yourself a beauty buff? Then pick up the new book Face Paint by make-up artist Lisa Eldridge. It covers the ancient social practice of decorating one’s face and body via the history of beauty products.
Harvey Nichols (30-34 St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, 0131-524 8332, www.harveynichols.com) is celebrating fragrance with a series of launches in Beyond Beauty. You’ll find the Aqua Vitae Forte eau de parfum from Maison Francis Kurkdjian (£165 for 70ml) and DSquared2’s Want eau de parfum (£56 for 50ml). The Perfume Society’s Sharon Whiting will host 20-minute scent sessions on 27 October, 6:30pm-9pm.
