Top Picks For Covent Garden, London – Charlotte Tilbury Haul & The Astrology Shop
On my recent trip to the UK I had a couple of essential pitstops.
Firstly, it had come to my attention that The Astrology Shop was under threat from Camden Council, with the beloved owner Barry campaigning and fighting to maintain his spot of many years in Seven Dials.
Seven Dials is a small road junction in Covent Garden where seven streets meet, famous for both well-known brands and independent stores.
An institution in this quaint area near Covent Garden, the shop is stocked with crystals, almanacs and an impressive collection of rare and interesting (and reliable) books.
Beyond its little corner of the world, the shop brings joy and the subject of the cosmos to countless people.
What an absolute travesty if we lost this amazing place!
The beautiful astrological timepiece displayed in its window was donated by Channel 4 and Laura Boomer–Trent, astrologer and presenter of the old school chat show that focused on the natal charts of famous stars…
Secondly I wanted to visit the flagship store of Charlotte Tilbury, which came highly recommended.
Like my favourite MAC Cosmetics, Charlotte Tibury lets you book in with a makeup artist for a ‘look’ makeover, and you then redeem the cost of the session on makeup.
I ADORE the packaging.
I bought an All-In-One Makeup Set, which is AMAZING.
For £100.00 the kit includes:
Instant Look In A Palette
I chose Natural Beauty, a palette containing Eye Brighten, Eye Enhance, Eye Smoke, Face Bronzer, Swish & Pop Blusher and Face Highlighter.
Full Fat Lashes Mascara
Lip Cheat Pillow Talk (lipliner) and
K.I.S.S.I.N.G Bitch Perfect lovely lipstick!
My palette has a little star on it and the shoebox it came in with pretty tissue paper was just divine.
