I'm going to treat myself and buy some new makeup. I'd like advice and a makeup lesson first. I was thinking bobby brown? I know they're in my local John lewis. Also can I just turn up or do I have to book?

I really like Clinique, I just turned up to their counter at my local Boots and asked for some help choosing foundation, eye make up and lipstick.

Have been using their skin care for a year but hadn't tried the make up so thought I'd make sure it suited me before forking out that much!

I would def book. They did my whole face and they talked thro what look I wanted and I cannot rate it highly enough ! They taught me a technique I didn't know about how to define my eyes and it is fab! Enjoy . !

Bobbi Brown, without doubt. I've found that you can usually just turn up, provided you don't do it on a Saturday afternoon, when you might have to wait a bit, or when they are 'doing' a big event (the Bobbi Brown girls at Kendals in Manchester are good, but they couldn't demonstrate a new eyeshadow on me one day because they were getting models ready for the Vogue fashion night out)

I got a Bobby Brown makeover in oxford Street and it was good. She just did my eyes but spent ages over it. Bought q a lot so although the makeover was free, they do get something out of it.

Thanks I'll try bobby brown. I've got a bit of clinique stuff but would like to try something different. I definitely need help with my eye makeup!

I'd always recommend MAC. They've always taken the time to help me find what I want and thanks to them I know how to style my eyebrows properly. They're spot on with foundation matching too smile
