First ever GLAMOUR beauty festival in Manchester a success

Date published: 05 November 2019

The Oldham Evening Chronicle took to the first ever GLAMOUR beauty festival in Manchester over the weekend (2nd Nov) that proved a huge success for makeup connoisseurs across the city.

The event saw beauty stalls and promotions open for ticket holders to grab samples and speak to professionals in the industry about the products.

Ticket holders were able to collect a goodie bag worth £300, that included branded products of all kinds- Elizabeth Arden, Smash box and Elf were some that made the prestigious list.

The Oldham Evening Chronicle spoke to Deborah Joseph, Editor in Chief of GLAMOUR magazine, she said “I left Manchester twenty-three years ago, so to come back to my home town is amazing with something as exciting as this.

“So many beauty and events are based in London and it’s lovely to bring it to northern women who I know from personal experience are massive beauty lovers!”

Guest speakers including Louise Redknapp gave the audience an insight into life as a celebrity and the glamourous showbiz industry- as well as life being a mum behind closed doors.

Deborah added, “I think beauty is ageless, it’s amazing to have brands like Elizabeth Arden at the festival, a brand you can use it if you’re twenty or if you’re seventy.

“It gives us a sense of identity.”
