The Selfridges Beauty Project, set in the Ultralounge on LG at Selfridges London, is a phenomenal line-up of inspirational contributors who take to the floor to deliver lectures on a variety and beauty and health topics. With the opportunity to ask questions, these pioneers are billed as the future of beauty. In association with Dove, The Salon programme is curated by Intelligence Squared and Dove, with each talk compared by Sali Hughes.
This Sunday, 8th June at 3pm, you can join Illamasqua’s Spob O’Brien for an open discussion on make-up through history, from the ancient Greeks to the hidden world of the Victorians and beyond. Why was mouse fur used, or how did we move from white lead make-up to grease-based foundation? At what point in history did make-up become a global phenomenon? How does that reflect in our make-up today?
With Spob’s expertise in period make-up and hair for Film/TV and commercials she has created looks through the eras, on such productions as Brideshead Revisited, The Kings Speech, Engima, Rush and Inception. Her love of history, make-up and hair in reflected within her work.
