So much has been going on behind the scenes at Tart, we've had more recommendations than you can shake a mascara wand at, including my favourite magazine, BBC Homes and Antiques, Glam.com, and even a rave review from the marvellous India Knight. And we've expanded all the activities on offer, to make the afternoon even more fabulous than ever. Here it is from the horse's mouth.
BENEFIT AT TART
Our favourite cosmetics brand, Benefit, has generously agreed to provide two of its fabulous beauty artists to transform guests into gorgeous goddesses from January onwards. Lisa Potter Dixon, Benefit's beauty guru and events manager, will also be on hand to share her tips on how to create the perfect look for 2010.
HENDRICK'S COCKTAIL MAKING MASTERCLASS
Guests who can’t tell the difference between ‘A Fallen Angel’ and ‘A Flying Dutchman’ will be taught how to unlock the mysteries of alcoholic alchemy by a top mixologist, utilising the potent properties of the world’s most unusual gin.
FLEUR DE GUERRE’S GUIDE TO 40S GLAMOUR
Starting this month, pin-up queen Fleur de Guerre will be launching a series of classes for girls who have always dreamt of becoming 1940s silver screen vixens with expert advice on vintage hair and make-up. This will include demonstrations on victory rolls and how to shape the perfect 40s red lip - with Benefit makeup of course! ;)
WHAT KATIE DID (BUT DIDN’T TELL HER PARENTS…)
Katie Halford, lingerie designer and owner of What Katie Did, will be sharing her ‘stocking secrets’ over the course of the afternoon (how to put them on, how to take them off and how to hold them up when you’ve got them up..). All very important, and essential training for every girl who wants to climb the style ladder.
We were also incredibly privileged to have our photo taken by the downright incredible Lara Jade.
That was pretty much a dream come true for me!
All that's left for me to say is that tickets for the next 6 months are becoming ever-rarer, so if you do want to come along, make sure you get in touch very soon!
Saturday 23rd January, 13th February, 13th March, 17th April, 15th May…
