Boy did my girlfriends and I have fun at the B bar last night! Before you ask girls, this is not the hottest new bar or night club, it is a gorgeously girly cosmetics store in Oxford Circus where you can have your make-up professionally applied in just 30 minutes whilst sipping a mouth watering cocktail!!
Now let me tell you why this place is so fabulous…. We all know what it’s like to be in such a rush to get ready that you end up looking more C-list WAG than A-list Hollywood! Getting ready for a night out after work or straight from a busy Saturday’s shopping trip is always a nightmare! I always end up looking a total mess after doing my make-up while sitting on the bus and usually spend the first 10 minutes after arriving at the bar re-doing it in the bathroom! Not any more… B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’s brand new bar concept, The B Bar, is an ultra glamorous make-over and cocktail bar rolled into one.
Stationed in B’s brand new flagship store on Oxford Street, you and your girlfriends can now begin your night out right here. For £15 you can sip on one of their delicious cocktails and choose from a menu of six key looks such as; Between The Sheets – dark smokey eyes and pale lips for a sexy, smoldering Cheryl Cole look, The Cosmopolitan – full on colour and glitter, for the WOW factor or Fifth Avenue – hot red lips, porcelain skin and eyeliner-a-plenty for a glamorous 1940’s look.
When we first arrived we were instantly mesmerised by all the glitz and colour, it was like a make-up Mecca!! It took us 10 minutes just to make our way 20 feet to the bar area, as everywhere we looked there were rows and rows of sparkly eye shadows, luscious lipsticks and glimmering glosses! Once we sat down at the bar our make-up artists came over and introduced themselves, they took our drink orders and then talked us through the different looks. Whilst bopping in our seats to ‘Like a Virgin’ we sipped our cocktails and discussed which looks we should go for. We all went for something different and none of us were disappointed, the make-up artists were really chatty and knowledgeable and were happy to divulge their beauty secrets and tips so we could recreate the looks at home.
Not only is this a fantastic way to start off your hen night, but The B Bar also offers a 90 minute make-up lesson called Absolut Bride. For an hour and half the make-up artist will work with you to create the perfect look for your big day and will give you lots of tips and advice on how to recreate the look yourself. For £45 I think this is a real investment for any bride who plans to do her own make-up on the big day but needs some direction and guidance to make sure it’s perfect!
I also want to mention that B Never Too Busy to be Beautiful is the only UK company to carry an entire colour cosmetics line that is suitable for Vegans.
