Last Sunday the 24th November saw Powder Beauty Boutique as its never been before! A collection of wonderful local designers & makers filled the rooms across 3 floors selling their lovely creations at our Christmas Market.
Visitors were treated to cranberry and cava fizz, homemade cakes, marshmallows and more as they explored all our boutique had to offer. We had great comments about how beautiful the rooms are, and what a lovely idea the market was.
Visitors were also treated to discounted nails on the day, and the nails were certainly popular, with all the spaces on the day booked up!
Here are some photos from the day, including our stall holders who are well worth checking out! They all sell their creations at other fairs locally and their makes are perfect unique christmas gifts. Click on any of the images below to find out more. Many thanks to Vintage Brighton who some of the image credits go to.
Thank you to all those who visited and took part- we hope you enjoyed your day!

VOTED BEST WATERPROOF MASCARA By Marie Claire. View all press features here.
Blinc is the original mascara invented to form tiny water resistant tubes around your lashes. Once applied they cannot run, smudge, or clump or even flake even if you rub your eyes.
Blinc is better than waterproof mascaras. All it takes is the combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure, from your fingertips, a washcloth or water pressure (i.e. shower) and the tubes will slide off your lashes effortlessly. Upon removal you will actually see the tiny beauty tubes in your hand!
So if you have never tried the famed, iconic and cult Blinc products then come and give them a go. Powder currently have a special in store offer price of £17 each or 2 products for £30! Tester sizes are £2.50 each!
Also indroducing the all new Blinc Ultra Thin Liquid eyeliner pen. Long lasting and waterproof.
The most precise brush available in the cosmetics Industry. Another popular Blinc product is the eyebrow mousse.
Once applied, blinc Eyebrow Mousse fills in sparse areas to create the perfect brow line that cannot fade, run, or smudge, even if you sweat or wear it in harsh weather conditions. Get ready for beautiful, face-framing brow colour that lasts all day long, unlike traditional eyebrow products that disappear half way through your busy day.
Blinc’s Fountain of Youthful Colour™ Eyebrow Mousse is the original eyebrow mousse invented to give enhancing, water-resistant and moisturizing colour to your brows with anti-aging benefits for the underlying skin.
Powder are now also offering semi permanent mascara that lasts for 4 weeks. Great if you wear lash extensions on the top lashes this can be applied to the bottom lashes.

This week Powder takes a look at the ever growing Harajuka fashion trend. Harajuku has become world famous as Japan’s center of street fashion. Harajuka, just a small square mile area is full of boutiques, fashion malls and chains. Every day of the year, tens of thousands of people come here to shop and see what the latest trends are.
Powder takes a look at how the Harajuka fashion is forming trends across the world…
We love the photo above from an article on nymag.com, which was created for V Magazine. The article describes,
“makeup artist Peter Philips kicked aside traditional makeup options and instead painted faces… in a vast array of whimsical Emoji, the Japanese doodads that replace written words with cartoonish images pictographs, to be more precise.”
The article goes onto say:
“The models are bedecked in colorful eyeballs and oversize lips, but also accessorized with jewels from Mawi, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Delfina Deletrez, and more….Imagine what life would be like if we had tiny panda faces as fingerprints.”
“Shot by photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina, the Harper’s Bazaar Indonesia Harajuku-ers editorial is as colorful and funky as the fashion itself. From carnival settings to arcade backdrops, this photo shoot takes advantage of the most vibrant scenes available. Playfully styled by Michael Pondaag, models Ksenia Katerina and Olga had their candy-colored hair and makeup done by Qiqi Franky, which help embellish the looks even more.”
Pop star Gwen Stefani and the Harajuku Girls made the Harajuka fashion internationally popular back in the mid-2000s and ever since people have been enamored with this culture’s vibrant and eccentric outfit choices.
The below images show some great fashion & nail inspiration we found and pinned over on our Pinterest board.
