Just when we thought we were sick to our sugar-laden back teeth of afternoon tea, every now and again it pulls us back in again with a fresh collaboration. And this time beauty guru Bobbi Brown has teamed up with New York and London eatery Balthazar on a luxury afternoon tea menu and the launch of a limited edition Vintage Red for Balthazar Lip Colour. Marking the beauty brands 25th anniversary, the deep red lip hue is a nod to the restaurants scarlet colour scheme and famous leather booths.
And the fun doesn’t stop there as all diners of the Afternoon Tea are also invited to experience a complimentary Instant Lip Makeup Lesson with one of Bobbi’s professional makeup artists at the Covent Garden Studio, just a stone’s throw away from the Balthazar.
THE BOBBI BROWN FOR BALTHAZAR MENU
Inspired by her iconic and award winning products, Bobbi has worked closely with Head Pastry Chef, Regis Beauregard to create a delicate offering, including…
Balthazar ‘Vintage Red’ kiss
Praline & Mango-Passion ‘Foundation Stick’

Redcurrant ‘Pot Rouge’ macaroon with Lemon Chantilly
Chocolate and Blackberry ‘Gel Eyeliner’ sachertorte.
It’s the holy grail of the beauty world and favourited by celebs and supermodels the world over. But how do us mere mortals achieve perfectly fresh, dewy skin that screams health and vitality? We fake it obviously! Although obviously a diet rich in good fats (avocado, oily fish, nuts) and gallons of water as well as regular exercise and face massage all helps to boost circulation and keep your visage hydrated, there are products to help too.
Here are just some of my favourite to get that subtle shine without the need for blotting paper!
Inspired by the legendary Hollywood actress, Lauren Bacall, Bobbi Brown have launched their Scotch on the Rocks makeup collection. Warm matte browns, golden metallic nudes and deep ambers make the collection one of the chicest yet as soft beige gold and bold bordeaux hues create kissable lips worthy of a starlet.
The collection includes two face palettes; one for a healthy pink glow and a light, creamy bronzing powder; perfect for highlighting an evening look. The American actress, who sadly passed away this year, was well-known for her classically beautiful appearance and timeless makeup. Reflected in the collections elegant colour palette and old school packaging, Bobbi Brown’s individual pieces are subtle with enough glamour to make Bacall proud.
In conjunction with the launch of the collection, Bobbi is offering complimentary “Look of the Season” Make-up Lessons with her makeup artists at the counter during the Christmas period. Bookings can be made online.
