London Beauty Shopping Guide

COVENT GARDEN

Store Locator linked

In Covent Garden, small boutiques, pavilions, passages and side streets are lined up and it is said that a small beauty-shopping paradise is blossoming here. Whether makeup, skin care or designer fashion and restaurants - on a sunny day you can probably not shop more beautifully and be entertained by street artists.

OXFORD ST.

Store Locator linked

Oxford Street should be passed at least inevitably on almost every trip to London. When it comes to beauty shopping, the main focus is on the many department stores and will certainly keep you busy for a few hours. Not to be underestimated are the beauty departments of some fashion chains ...

CARNABY ST.

Store Locator linked

Carnaby Street in Soho runs parallel to Regent Street in the direction of Picadilly Circus and is the chamantere route with many small stores and food opportunities.

SPACE NK branches are now very numerous in London - a total of 23 branches scattered across the city and of course many in the city center. SpaceNK are doing very small boutiques and not all brands are represented in every branch. Always check the website to see if there are any events taking place during your visit for which you may be able to register in advance.

SELFRIDGES

You certainly cannot avoid SELFRIDGES because it shines like a fortress in the middle of Oxford Street and also works like a magnet for fashion fans. Despite a lot of competition in London, the beauty department is a specialty and combines traditional architecture with very stylish brands - and there are very, very many of them here.

HARRODS

The long-established luxury department store is always full of tourists who just want to see the building. The beauty department extends over several halls and is admittedly not quite as stylish as the SELFRIDGES, but in addition to the usual prestige brands, it always has a few specials ready.

HARVEY NICHOLS

Another traditional department store with luxury brands near HARRODS south of Hyde Park around the corner from numerous designer boutiques. A couple of exciting beauty brands are well represented here - depending on where you've been or not, a visit can be worthwhile.

There are numerous BOOTS branches in London - most of them are "the drugstore next door" with a basic range. In addition, there are larger branches that are comparable to the range offered by dm and Rossmann. The most exciting for us are of course the "Müller-like" perfumeries - in the heart of Oxford Street and at Oxford Circus the made-up bear is quilting ...

Of course you inevitably pass SUPERDRUG branches in London and you can hardly miss the logo. It cannot compete with the larger BOOTS branches in terms of selection, but some brands are offered exclusively. Those who have the leisure can easily compare prices between the two competitors. It can be worth it ...

SCREENFACE is explicitly aimed at professional customers with a focus on Special FX, so that one does not enter a consumer makeup paradise here. However, the new store with a new address and a new logo suggests that the product range is also geared towards consumers. If you have something specific in mind, you better call ahead or write on Facebook or Instagram and ask if they carry it. Example: at LA FEMME, for example, you could hope for the well-known blushes - only pens are listed here in the shop.

PAM is a bit outside of the city center, but a trip might still be worthwhile if you want to see some of the hyped brands live - Viseart, for example. PAM is a constant at IMATS London - but I haven't been there yet. And seeing a little more of London than the usual suspects never hurts.

While I knew the other pro stores at least from IMATS, TILT is a completely new term to me. The store offers a wealth of very exciting international brands. Unfortunately, the store is a bit further out, but it might be worth taking a trip to see a Spezi product in person.
