Next in our #AskMe Instagram campaign, we shared your burning questions with the beauty teams at Peter Jones. Here’s all you need to know from colour matching to mask-proof looks.
Are you carrying the Sturm skincare line?
Sinem Mehmet, Beauty Team Manager at Peter Jones – “Sadly not. Sturm is a high end beauty brand that offers luxury science-based products, developed by Dr Barbara Sturm. We offer some luxury skincare products from both Creme De La Mer and La Prairie, both developed with science at the heart of their products. Visit the counters at Peter Jones where you can find out more information about both brands.”
How do you stop concealers from greying out your skin?
Lisa Gilroy, Business Manager at Charlotte Tilbury – “The product you are currently using is possibly either too light or the wrong tone to allow the colour balance or correction you are looking for. Visit our counter at Peter Jones where we would be happy to advise you.”
What’s the best way to fix makeup to be a little more mask proof?
Lisa Gilroy – “Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless setting spray (no melting, no fading, no creasing) offers 16 hour wear.”
Best body moisturiser for dehydrated skin that isn’t greasy?
Tracey O’Sullivan, Business Manager at Clarins – “Clarins moisture rich body lotion with shea butter leaves your skin feeling intensely moisturised, softer and smoother and absorbs instantly into the skin.”
Using an under-eye concealer intensifies my fine lines. What do I do?
Lisa Gilroy – “Try using an eye cream under with a more hydrating concealer or maybe a lighter weight formula. Visit our counter at Peter Jones for a consultation.”
Will be able to colour match in store? My base shade has wanted so much during lockdown!
Sinem Mehment – “Yes, selected brands like Charlotte Tilbury and Bobbi Brown can colour match for you. Other brands such as MAC have artists that can guide you with self-application. Visit the first floor at Peter Jones where I am sure we can find the perfect match for you.”
How often do I need to exfoliate my face in the summer? I don’t want to lose my tan.
Tracey O’Sullivan – “Once a week is ideal, followed by moisturiser to keep hydrated. I would suggest our best-selling One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. If you wish to visit our counter at Peter Jones, we would be happy to guide you on the best skincare regime for you and provide samples.”
Have you got any new brands joining soon?
Sinem Mehmet – “We have recently launched some great new brands to Peter Jones, including Olaplex Haircare, OTO the leading premium CBD brand in the UK, Susanne Kaufmann and Skandinavisk.”
If I only had the budget to prioritise either skincare or makeup quality, which is more important?
Sinem Mehmet – “Skincare – it’s important to have the right skin for your needs to allow the makeup then to look its best on top. We have a huge selection of different skincare and makeup brands to suit all budgets on our first floor beauty department.”
Looking for day to night make-up tips?
Lisa Gilroy – “Get a palette that has a selection of colours to easily dial a day look up to a night – Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palettes are designed to do this and come in a variety of shades to suit your colouring. Each palette contains four harmonious colour ways that offer a complete ‘desk to disco’ eye colour wardrobe.”
